Life Changes Services

from the Desks of Drs. Vicki and Charles Kelsey

Our Cutting Edge Services include:

NEUROFEEDBACK: A technology for dealing with brain-based functional disorders without the use of medication or invasive procedures, in which brain activity is recorded using electrodes and presented visually or audibly so that the patient can know the state of the function he or she is trying to control. Neurofeedback is a computer-aided training method in which selected parameters of the patient's own brain activity is trained to regulate itself optimally. It is natural and nothing is "put into the brain." Conditions it helps include: ADHD; Anxiety; Brain Injury; Depression; Fibromyalgia; Migraines; PTSD/Stress; Substance Abuse; Addiction; Autism; Chronic Fatigue; Seizures; Insomnia; Memory Loss; OCD; Stroke. These we have seen in our offices. Go to www.fwneurofeedback.com

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY: Looks at dysfunction of the nervous system as different shades of gray looking for subtle changes in the nervous system before they become distinct pathologies. Conditions helped in our office include: Migraines, Cluster Headaches, Neuralgias, Vertigo, Fibromyalgia, ADHD, Autism, Thyroiditis.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE: Focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs, usually involving systems of the body and its organs, usually involving systes of holistic or alternative medicine. You do not have to have a disease to benefit from Functional Medicine. Conditions we have helped include Thyroid, TBI, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia.

COLD LASER: Class 4. Low level laser. Laser photobiostimulation, is a form of phototherapy which involves the application of monchromatic and coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing. This therapy reduces inflammation and helps the body create new, healthy cells. Healing for nerves, muscles, skeleton, joints.

PEMT: Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy: Is a reparative technique most commonly used in the field of orthopaedics for the treatment of non-union fractures, failed fusions, pseudoarthrosis. Lots of medical research has been done showing its effectiveness in double blind studies healing many different nerve, muscle, and bone conditions. We find it accelerates pain reduction and healing in most all of our neuro-musculo-skeletal cases.

INTERSEGMENTAL TRACTION: It is a therapy table which gently induces passive motion in the spine for the purpose of relaxing and stretching spinal joints. Benefits many spine conditions.

PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY REHAB THERAPY: See Rebuilder Medical. Electronic stimulation of peripheral nerves to improve function. Helps recover from numbness in feet, legs, hands, and arms.

OXYGEN THERAPY WITH EXERCISE: Breathing concentrated air while biking accelerates healing abilities of brain-body.

WOBBLE CHAIR: Therapeutic and facilitates all possible combinations of exercise motion needed for lumbar disc mobility.

INFRARED HEATING PADS: Whcih promote deep heat relaxing muscles and eases joint pain.

CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS: Mayo Clinic says it is a procedure (gentle in our office) in which a chiropractic doctor use our hands or a small instrument to apply a force (gentle) for manipulating the spine, shoulders, knees to correct structural misalignments and improve your body's physical function. Conditions we help are injuries from wrecks, sports injuries, headaches, neck pain, spine pain, arm and leg pain and numbness.

 BEGINNING CARE in our office is with a thorough consultation and neurological exam.  Films or other labs such as blood chemistries are sometimes needed.  A clear report of findings including the cause of your health condition; how we can fix the problem; costs.  (If we cannot help you we explain why and try to help you land in an appropriate office.)   Choices of care in our office  are presented with no pressure.
