METABOLIC TREATMENTS & DIAGNOSIS
Comprehensive thyroid panels
A complete metabolic panel (CMP)
A lipid panel
A CBC (complete blood chemistry with auto differential)
Sensitivity Testing: This test determines if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, barley and other grains), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy.
Adrenal Stress Index (ASI): We can further test your adrenal glands with a test called an Adrenal Stress Index. This is a salivary test much like DNA testing. Your adrenal glands are your "stress" organs meaning that they react to stress. If you have been or are currently under stress, this test is a must!
Immune Panels: Your condition could be caused by an autoimmune disorder. As you know, an autoimmune disorder is where your immune system attacks a particular area of the body (nervous system, joints, connective tissue, thyroid, etc.) so we test for specific antibodies to determine if you suffer from an autoimmune condition.
NEUROTRANSMITTERS: We test for decreased brain neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are vital for proper brain function. Decreased neurotransmitters can cause increased pain.
HORMONE PANELS: We can check hormone panels to determine if the patient suffers from low testosterone in males or low estrogen/progesterone levels in females. Symptoms related to decreased hormone levels may include depression, fatigue, mental fogginess, mood swings, hot flashes, sweating attacks, weight gain, and decreased physical stamina.
INFLAMMATION: Finally, we may need to test for inflammation in your system by testing homocysteine levels and C-Reactive Protein (C-RP).
GLUTATHIONE: We use Glutathione in our treatment of ALL chronic conditions (along with other nutritional protocols).
Brain-Based Therapy (BBT): A
revolutionary breakthrough treatment program pioneered by the country's
leading chiropractic neurologist, Dr. Fredrick Carrick. The treatments
are all neurologically based and clinically proven to help with chronic
pain, balance disorders and other neurologic conditions.
Unilateral Adjusting: Understanding how and why to specifically adjust areas of the spine is very important to creating the best possible outcomes. Dr. Sung has completed neurologically based adjustment courses.
Triton DTS - Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression: A computer guided system that gently lengthens and decompresses the spine to provide lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain due to disc problems. Dr. Sung has been performing spinal decompression since 2006. Years of experience have given us a clinical edge allowing you to get the fastest relief possible.
brain and nervous system needs two things to survive - fuel and
activitation. Fuel comes in the form of food and oxygen. Because our
ability to use oxygen goes down with age, we check oxygen levels on all
of our patients. O2 stimulates your nervous system to enhance healing
and repair thus decreasing pain, promoting more restful sleep and
bringing many other health benefits.
Rebuilder™: A proven electrical stimulator that sends a comfortable electronic pulse/signal to your feet and legs that can get your nerves functioning again. You can think of it like a heart pacemaker that restores and improves heart function: the ReBuilder restores, stabilizes, and rebuilds the nerves in your extremities.
Nutritional Counseling: Part of the bigger picture to restoring your health is how you eat. We have specialized training to provide you with sound direction when it comes to eating well and supplementation.
Glutathione Therapy: Known as the mother of all antioxidants, glutathione is found in almost every cell in the body. Glutathione can help decrease pain and inflammation, give you more energy and rid your body of numerous toxins.Graston Technique: much like a tuning fork, resonate in the clinician's hands allowing the clinician to isolate adhesions and restrictions, and treat them very precisely. Since the metal surface of the instruments does not compress as do the fat pads of the finger, deeper restrictions can be accessed and treated. When explaining the properties of the instruments, we often use the analogy of a stethoscope. Just as a stethoscope amplifies what the human ear can hear, so do the instruments increase significantly what the human hands can feel.
Individualized Home Exercising Planning: Many of our patients want to take an active role in their recovery. We empower you with individualized exercise programs tailored to your specific needs. These plans often contain several 'phases' that change as you become stronger and healthier. Let's make you the best you can be.
