Every 21 seconds in America, someone is newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Here at Hands on Health, we recognize this and we want to do something about it! Our program for diabetes management will provide you with a holistic, patient centered, systems biology treatment plan aimed at controlling your blood sugar and decreasing your associated symptoms. We understand that every patient is unique, with their own set of lifestyle, genetic and environmental factors that influence their health. The providers at Hands on Health will work with you and your physician as a team, integrating western and functional medicine methodologies with current evidence- based practices to stop the progression of diabetes and improve your overall health. Patients who have worked with us have been able to successfully remove medications (such as metformin and glipizide) from their regimens and learn new ways to support the body through proper nutrition. Whether you are pre-diabetic or have been diabetic for some time, ask the providers at Hands on Health Wellness Center how we can help!
Factors such as environment and lifestyle can place the body in a state of stress. When the body is stressed, its defenses and energy production are negatively affected, pushing the body away from health and creating opportunities for disease progression. At Hands on Health, we focus on natural detoxification along with nutrition to disrupt these opportunities and return the body to a state of wellness. Our detoxification plans are individualized, based on the unique needs of each patient. Through evaluation and testing our providers will work with you, creating a specialized plan to help you obtain the wellness you desire. Please note that at Hands on Health, we believe that prevention is a key component of wellness. You don’t have to be “sick” to benefit from our detoxification plans. Ask about it today.
Low back pain, neck pain and headache are common reasons why people seek chiropractic adjustment. At Hands on Health, we are experts at treating these ailments. Chiropractic adjustment is proven to increase spinal motion, release tension, decrease inflammation and improve physical function. However there is much more to chiropractic adjustment as it relates to the body’s overall wellness. Your nervous system is the communication center of your body, sending messages from your brain to every cell, organ, gland, muscle and system. Your nervous system must be working well in order for your body to work well. Keeping the vertebrae centered, level, and with the correct spinal curvature creates an optimal environment for a vital nervous system. When the nervous system is at its best, the body is able to function highly, eliminating disease and toxicity. Chiropractic adjustment is safe for the whole family, including children. Hands on Health is a family friendly practice, we encourage all to visit.
Clinical practice guidelines issued by the American College of Physicians have included massage therapy (or myofascial release) as a beneficial option for treating acute pain such as neck, low back and headache pain. It is also an integral part of achieving overall wellness. While chiropractic adjustment works on the vertebrae and joints, myofascial release works on the muscles. When the muscles spasm and are tense, the spine is not properly supported. At Hands on Health, we integrate chiropractic adjustment with myofascial release and controlled rehabilitation exercises for maximum benefit to the patient. During the course of a visit, our patients will experience these combined therapies, leaving them feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day!

Trigger points are central areas of spasm and inflammation in muscle tissue. Common sites of trigger points include the upper back and shoulder areas, which can cause headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain. Trigger points can also occur in the low back causing low back pain, tightness and soreness. At Hands on Health, our trigger point therapy involves the injection of lidocaine (we do not use corticosteroids or immune modifiers) directly into the trigger point, helping to alleviate spasm and relieve pain. The combination of trigger point therapy and spinal correction has proven to be greatly beneficial for our patients.
