Functional medicine is a personalized and integrative approach to healthcare which involves understanding the prevention, management, and root causes of complex chronic disease. It has evolved integrative, holistic, conventional and naturopathic models to offer the most comprehensive and effective approach to healthcare in the 21st century.
Chiropractic care at Balance Medical Integration is personalized, comprehensive and cutting-edge. We know chiropractic adjustments can be intimidating so offer many non-evasive, low-force options as well as traditional manual adjustments. We step back and assess your entire body to see if all joints and muscles are working together like a fine-tuned symphony. If not, we find the imbalance and customize treatment through a combination of therapies that may include soft tissue mobilization, laser therapy, rehabilitation exercises and chiropractic adjustments.
Whether you visit our RIDGWAY or TELLURIDE office, our integrative approach is specifically designed to get you feeling and moving better in as few visits as possible!
Platelet -Rich Plasma (PRP) has continued to grow as a reliable way to treat soft tissue and joint injuries effectively. People experience these kinds of injuries for many reasons – sometimes they are due to intense sports or can be a result of aging or developing arthritis. In any of these cases, PRP can help heal the affected tissues more quickly. Additionally, PRP has aesthetic applications such as improving overall skin and hair health.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Balance Medical Integration offers a cutting-edge healing therapy called mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) in our Ridgway office. mHBOT is a safe, relaxing and highly-effective way to deliver more oxygen to the cells of the body to stimulate cellular health and regeneration, as well as increase the volume of oxygen in the blood. It also provides the optimal environment for the body to carry out vital cell processes and promote healing.
At Balance Medical Integration, we are pleased to offer IV therapies to our patients. We offer a wide range of treatments, from simple hydration to more customized therapies, including unique combinations of vitamins and minerals. We tailor each IV therapy session to the individual, depending on their needs and existing conditions.
Trigger Point Injections
Here at Balance Medical Integration, we are proud to offer trigger point injections for patients struggling with fibromyalgia, tension headaches, myofascial pain, and muscle pain in the arms, legs, lower back and neck.
During your appointment, we will locate the area where you are experiencing pain and inject small amounts of anesthetic and steroid to help alleviate your symptoms.
This procedure is safe and the risk of possible complications is very low. You may experience soreness or numbness at the injection site for a temporary period of time. While you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days, you should be able to actively use your muscles immediately following treatment.
