Restore Healthy Bones Without Drugs | Windsor Colorado

Windsor Chiropractor | Osteoporosis  Bone HealthThe United States surgeon General has recommend weight bearing exercise for patient suffering from osteopenia and osteoporosis. The recommendation goes on to state that Maximal load bearing is an effective non-pharmaceutical approach to healthier bone density, mass, strength, and durability. However in the weight lifting and athletic worlds, most of these patients would find themselves in an unsafe position of lifting and moving weights so heavy they increase risk of injury to joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

Lifting maximal weights in patients with bone loss is simply not feasible and daily walking, aerobic fitness, even light weight lifting, although beneficial for the heart, does not show appreciable gains in bone mass over time and most of the patients who attempt to stop the progress of bone loss must eventually succumb to medications that have, In many cases, terrible side effects.

Patients that have adverse reaction to the medication of feel very much at a loss of how they can prevent fractures that can come from the simplest bumps. We have had patient fracture ribs from sneezing, have had small falls on relatively soft surfaces lead to hip, wrist, shoulder, and spinal fractures. Once the fractures start, surgery is invariable necessary and the 5 year survival rate plummets from the fracture, subsequent deconditioning, any surgical complications, and other factors, such as diabetes, obesity, smoking and weakened immunity.

Fortunately there is a solution to the apparent lack of treatment that many patients with bone loss are dealing with. That solution does not require heavy weight lifting, it has minimal risk and it is conveniently available in Windsor! Biodensity™ is the treatment of choice that want to improve their bone, improve their muscle mass and strength and the results are felt and seen very quickly!

Biodensity™ developed by John Jaquish, Ph.D. is an amazing breakthrough device designed to safely treat bone loss, but the other side improvements that come from regular use of this machine are amazing. We have patient double, triple and even quadruple their measurable strength in a short period of time and we have seen seniors suffering with osteoporosis and fearful of falling improve dramatically under our treatment. Improvements in muscle mass, strength, and bone are predictable, repeatable outcomes with use of the Biodensity™.

Tony Robbins personally endorses the Biodensity™ and many busy professionals are able to see strength and muscle improvements in just a few short weeks on the program. Anyone who is short on time also appreciates the machine because a treatment is less than 10 minutes and the frequency is only 1-4 times per month!

Platelet Rich Plasma- PRP Therapy is the Future of Medicine

Medical staff adjusting IV

Imagine if you could take your own cells and use them to regenerate a damaged knee, elbow or ankle, how would that change your ability to perform?  Imagine using your own cells to re-grow hair in the balding patch on your crown and forehead, would that make you more confident?  Imagine  if you could use your own Platelet Rich Plasma to smooth wrinkles, tone and firm skin, reduce stretchmarks and scars, or give your whole face a rejuvenating, non-surgical face-lift!

The future of medicine has arrived and those of you who live in the Northern Colorado area now have a state-of-art facility in Benchmark Medical Group to give you the body and look you’ve always dreamed of!  We are able to provide multiple procedures to regenerate your body, joints, skin and hair with this amazing treatment protocol.

How Does it Work?

Whenever you are injured, your body has an amazing ability to send platelets and building blocks to the area to begin the necessary actions to re-create new collagen, the most prevalent protein you have.  These platelets are necessary for the tissues to heal, and for the body to undergo regeneration.  Through our amazing Harvest® technology of extracting platelets, we can now remove a small amount of blood from your body, separate the plasma, the platelets and the blood cells and use that material to regenerate your tissues!

The platelets are then re-introduced to the plasma and the very special mixture of regenerative material can be re-introduced to the body where it causes a cascade of actions necessary to re-generate the tissue.  This amazing technology allows you to restore and regenerate your damaged tissues and allows your body to create new, rejuvenated collagen to give you a younger looking face, better moving joints, fewer scars, more hair and many other benefits.

Is it Safe?

The use of Platelet Rich Plasma is not new, and the technology has been used around the world for several years.  However, advanced in technology and an explosion of new research has made the PRP Therapy easier to apply, and more-widespread in its application. The safety of the technique and the use of PRP could not be safer.  The use of your own materials makes it easy for your body to do what is necessary to regenerate your from your platelets and plasma carrier. There are no adverse reactions like those found in other cosmetic fillers, and there is no risk of tissue rejection, or other complications and side effects that are found with other pharmaceuticals.

Does it hurt?

With the use of skin numbing creams, and other helpful tools, we minimize discomfort and make sure that the procedure does not hurt.  Because the procedures do involve injections, there may be a slight sting sensation depending on the procedure.  The physicians and assistants at Benchmark Medical Group will do everything possible to minimize discomfort and make the experience as pleasant as possible.

What benefits should I expect?

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy can benefit many different tissues in the body.  Peripheral nerves like those affected with Peripheral Neuropathy can improve sensation following PRP Therapy. Cartilage like that found in degenerative osteoarthritic knees can improve mobility, joint space and function following PRP Therapy.  Scar tissue, like that found following C-Section surgeries, stretch mark scars from pregnancy and weight lifting, and other superficial scars and damaged tissues can demonstrate rejuvenation and reduction of scar tissues following PRP Therapy.  Facial wrinkles, smile-lines, brow-lines and age spots can show improvements following Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment. Fuller Lips, smoother skin and a younger appearance is expected following PRP therapy. Hair can re-grow and thicken with the use of PRP treatments and patients (and their hairstylists) report thicker, stronger hair following PRP treatment.

Essentially the list of body areas that can be safely and effectively is very long!  If you have a particular health condition or have a question as to how PRP can help you, give us a call or send us a message at contactus@benchmarkmedicalgroup.com!

How do I get PRP Therapy?

Call us! We are booking up very quickly, but we have opening to get the therapy.  If you or someone you know could benefit from PRP therapy we are centrally located between Greeley, Fort Collins and Loveland in Windsor, Colorado.  We are accepting new patients now, so call today!

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Example of the amazing results!
Example of the amazing results!

Do you suffer with low back pain and stiffness every time you stand up?  Are you limping or favoring one leg because of pain or stiffness?  Do you have one-sided ankle, knee or hip pain that just never seems to go away?  Do you look in the mirror and see that one shoulder is lower than the other?

Unfortunately, unless you are an astronaut slated to head toward the International Space Station, you must contend with gravity at all times.  Gravity keeps us planted to the earth, and it also plays a very significant role in growth and development of the bones and tissues of the body.  If you are not symmetrical, the pressure that is created simply from your normal daily activities can set you up for pain, suffering and eventually disability.

We are meant to be symmetrical creatures, two eyes, ears, arms and legs.  This symmetry is important for attractiveness, and plays an important part in how we function in the world.  Unfortunately, trauma, genetics and poor postural and gait habits can make us lose our symmetry and the results can be disastrous.  Knee pain and degeneration can prevent you from playing sports, exercising, or even carrying your laundry down the stairs.  Hip pain and degeneration can make it hard to move around and may eventually require hip replacement if the degeneration gets too bad.  Low back pain is an epidemic, affecting nearly 80% of the population at any given time.  All of this pain and suffering reduces quality of life, and leads to disabling conditions that wreck our enjoyment.

Legs are meant to be symmetrical, and if you have one leg that is shorter than the other because of growth or injury during the teen years, this inequality can place abnormal pressures on muscles, tendons and discs and can lead to pelvic and spinal muscles being weak and imbalanced.  These weak and unbalanced muscles can cause pressures on pain-sensitive ligaments, tendons, bone, and discs and can lead to accelerated degeneration of the joint involved.  Eventually the imbalance will created stresses and strains great enough to cause the tissues to deform and they will degenerate even more. Abnormal posture hurts!

Fortunately, at Benchmark Medical Group, located in Windsor in Northern Colorado,  we have the tools to detect leg length differences and can prescribe the proper heel lifts or orthotics to remedy the situation.  Many patients report much less pain and better gait and function simply by placing a small lift in the shoe!  The analysis requires a very specific x-ray and measurement to determine the exact amount of leg length difference and once we have this information, specific exercises and therapies can be applied to get you back to symmetry!

power-plateIf we find these differences in young adults and teens, we can often prevent pain and dysfunction with early intervention.  However, if the leg length problem is long standing, muscles tendons and ligaments have most likely adapted to the abnormal position and this may necessitate rehabilitation.  Fortunately, we have many different methods to get muscles and joints working properly again. We have an Alter-G  anti-gravity treadmill than can re-train your gait while removing the pressure of gravity.  We have Power Plate® Physical therapy that can get your small stabilizing muscles around the spine hips and legs working properly again and a team of therapists who can assist you in safely rehabilitating your body.

If the degeneration is extensive, we have some very cutting-edge treatments that can not only lessen pain but can actually re-generate your joints and soft tissues.  Injections of Surpartz® into reduced joint space can improve cushion and lessen pain.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves removing  some of your own blood, processing the plasma with your own platelets and re-injection into the damaged tissues.  This PRP therapy effectively allows you to use your own cells to accelerate healing and regeneration of the tissues with little to no side effects and tremendous safety considering it is your own plasma being injected.

We have traction and CBP® rehabilitation therapies that can remove pressure from compressed lumbar spine discs and joints, remove pressure from the delicate nerves of the spine and get better pain-free range of motion.  We also have an incredibly effective weight loss program to lessen the loads on all of your joints a get you looking and feeling your best. Plus our amazing K-Laser can assist in healing time, improve circulation and reduce pain, often in just a few treatments!

If you are suffering with pain, what are you waiting for?  Call us today to see if you are candidate for our amazing treatments and to receive a screening to determine if 8qKHyVDyour pain and other health conditions are caused or complicated by an leg-length inequality.  Why suffer?  Call Now!

Regenerative Deep Joint Injections

We are excited to introduce a new service that will benefit our patient suffering from pain associated with arthritis and joint damage. Our nurse practitioner and medical doctor are now able to provide injections to deep joint pain and loss of function.

What is used?

The injected substance is very similar to human synovial joint fluid and is called hyaluronic acid. The other names that are commonly used are Rooster comb, Cocks Comb, sodium hyaluronate, Supartz™ and others. We will be using the trademarked formulation known as Supartz®

Who can benefit?

If you suffer from pain in your knees or other large joints that is the result of osteoartirits, old injuries or loss of normal joint function due to degeneration, you may be a candidate for a series of joint injections designed to improve joint range of motion, decrease pain and increase synovial fluid. This FDA approved technology is revolutioning joint regeneration and enabling people to get their fitness and weight under control.

The technique involves a complete evaluation to see if you are a candidate, but most of the individuals who seek care can get relief with our techniques.  Some may need joint replacement surgery and we will instruct those patients that they are not candidates for the treatment.

The evaluation is detailed and thorough, we handle the paperwork and it only takes about an hour on the first visit. We are able to help so many people suffering from joint and knee pain and the joint injection, if necessary only makes all of the other amazing services we provide even better. If you remotely think that you are candidate, we will evaluate you regardless.

Does it hurt?

The area of injection is numbed prior to the injection so there is not pain associated with the injection. There can be some redness and swelling in the joint following the procedure, but this is usually mild and subsides quickly. If you experience other symptoms, please return to the office to have them evaluated.

How can I get started?

Contact the office at 970-686-9117 for more information and scheduling.

Mind over Pain- Pain Relief Through Your Thoughts!

johnswordsPain is no fun.  Injury, disease, degeneration, all can lead to a pain.  Pain can make us less functional, make us less likely to be active and even prevent us from any enjoyment of life whatsoever. Fortunately, we have many physical solutions for pain that can lessen the severity and improve structure and function.

However, we also must address the mental component of pain.  The brain is the most powerful organ in the body, capable of truly amazing feats and is the central controlling organ for the function of all of the other organs.  It has been known for many decades that people can control their perception of pain with mental strength alone.  There are documented events performed by Fakirs in India where they are able to overcome, or not be affected by, what would normally be incredible painful stimuli.  Martial artists will break boards, ice, and perform unbelievable feats with little or no painful perception whatsoever.  Marathon runners and endurance athletes will run for miles and miles with no perception of pain.

This type of “mind over matter” ability is usually not something that we are born with, but something that must be learned.  Once we learn that we have the ability to control our pain perception with our mind, that ability must be honed and perfected if we wish to perform feats that would typically cause debilitating pain. That is, if you want to perform amazing feats.

Most people will not run marathons or break boards with their hands.  Most people who are suffering just want to get rid of their back pain, neck pain or headaches. However, the brains of most people are no different than the brains of the martial artist or endurance runner; they just have not perfected the ability to block pain with their mind and thoughts only!

In the frontal lobe of your brain, you possess specialized cells that allow you to pre-plan, create new ideas, and anticipate the future.  This frontal lobe is where your focus and attention will need to go if you are reducing pain with your mind.  A mantra or repetitive thought, a trigger to make you think of something else, or an image that calms and relaxes you will enable you to overcome your pain in the moment.  Movement, a great state of mind and knowledge that what you are feeling will only be temporary can enable you to lessen the physical sensation of pain.

Many people who are injured severely report that thinking of the people that they love , family, friends and thinking about those that they deeply care about is enough to lessen the sensation of pain and persevere through the pain.  Distraction activities, putting the mind on tasks and the future, as well as moving your mental awareness to another part of the body can all lessen a painful area. Focusing on those that are less fortunate and understanding that there is always someone suffering more than you are all tools and techniques that can lessen the perception of pain.

Ultimately, learning mental coping skills and practicing those skills over and over is a critical component to feeling less pain and suffering.  If you are interested in learning more about the types of pain relief tools we provide and some of the amazing pain therapies that are available at Benchmark Medical Group give us a call!  We can help!

Is SUGAR causing your knee pain?!?

Many people with pain rarely understand the concept that the foods they consume and the nutritional choices they make play a very significant role in the creation of pain in the body.  People often get discouraged when I have to inform them that the single most important step they can take in reducing pain is reevaluating and changing their eating habits.  Fortunately, there is real scientific evidence to support the fact that sugar bound to red blood cells is important not only in the risk of developing diseases like diabetes, but also in inflammation; and this process is reversible with the right lifestyle choices!

The process where the body attaches sugar to tissues is called Glycation.  This Glycation is important for cells to carry glucose for energy into cells so the cells can do their jobs and work.  However, with the typical diet, there is an overload of sugar and carbohydrates and this Glycation becomes excessive.  Normally, when the blood sugar increases, the pancreas produces insulin and as long as the cells are still sensitive to this insulin, the sugar is broken down.  However, with over consumption of sugar, the sensitivity to insulin decreases and the blood sugar is allowed to remain higher than it should.  As this free-circulating sugar is travelling with the blood cells, the cells attract the sugar like a magnet and the level of glycosylated hemoglobin increases.  Eventually this increase leads to type two diabetes with its consequences of increased thirst, poor wound healing, confusion, dementia and eventual death.

The secondary consequence of too much Glycation or sugar attached to tissues is that this process produces inflammation in the body! Inflammation is normally found Knee_1in the presence of injury, trauma and infection, but in this case the body is inflamed without an outlet, like a virus or bacteria to kill.  This unregulated inflammation will eventually find its way to all tissues of the body and previously injured tissues will remain painful long after they should have healed, tissues that are loaded by excess body fat will compress sensitive pain nerve ending and produce pain and the pain and inflammation cycle will spiral until multiple muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints are affected and the pain becomes more widespread.

I know that it is not the easiest concept to understand that the sugar and carbohydrates in our breads, pasta, rice, fruits and veggies, and processed foods are the underlying cause of your pain, but the scientific understanding of pain verifies this extensively. We further see evidence of this in our clinical evaluation of patients in pain who remove the majority of the carbohydrates from their diet and see great reductions in knee pain, back pain, neck pain headaches and more simply by changing what they eat.

If you would like to know where your pain is coming from and the steps you can take to reduce or eliminate pain from your life, what are you waiting for?  We have a team of physicians and therapists at Benchmark Medical in Windsor, Colorado that will work with you to understand your particular health conditions and move you
toward better overall health and wellness.  Why suffer any longer?  Call us today!

Clear your head and Cut the Pain! Natural Pain Relief!

healthyweightloss

There are many common health problems that can seriously interfere with your quality of life and get in the way of quality relationships, your work, your kids and the amount of time you are able to devote to activities that truly fulfill you.  Two of the biggest problem health conditions are pain and inflammation and memory loss.

Pain and inflammation can be caused by a previous trauma, poor posture, lack of exercise and poor food choices.  Once the pain begins to interfere with your ability or desire to move and be active the downward spiral can lead to muscle deconditioning, worsening of pain and disability.

Memory loss and even forgetfulness can lead to embarrassment in certain situations, but if it progresses, it can be the scary beginnings of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Memory should remain intact throughout life and if you feel that you are not as sharp as you used to be, the time to act is NOW!  Don’t wait until you are struggling, the right choices now can get your mind and memory back to where it needs to be.

Chronic pain is so common that many people believe that it is a normal part of life.  This is not true!  Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong.  If you have the obvious signs of trauma like bruising and swelling, these external signs will motivate you to act.

However, if your pain is deep and chronic, you may be wondering not only where is it coming from, but also, what can you do to stop the cycle?  The most commonly misunderstood treatment for both chronic pain and memory loss is a change in dietary habits!

You are what you consume, absorb, and what your body is able to eliminate.  If you are eating wheat products, refined carbohydrates and sugars, trans-fats and refined oils, you are essentially putting gasoline on the inflammatory fires that are causing your to suffer!  If you actively look at all of your food choices you make, you may begin to see patterns of foods that increase your pain and suffering.

If you simply reduce the amount of carbohydrates, refined oils and trans-fats and cut down on the consumption of dairy, wheat and gluten, increase water, exercise and super-nutrients, you will see your body begin to change quickly.  Fat loss, reduction in pain and a clearer head will be the result.

Improving nutrients like high-DHA content fish oils, B-Vitamins and coconut oils and butter can all assist your body in feeling and function better.

If you have inflammation in your digestive track and you are unable to absorb nutrients, you may want to consider IV nutritional therapies to get the nutrients directlyMedical staff adjusting IV into the cells to help your body recover and heal.

Overall, re-assessment of what you eat, how you move and what your nutrient profile is will help your body feel refreshed, give you pain relief and get you clearer.  If you are looking to correct your postural misalignments, recover from new or old trauma, and get your strength and flexibility back, we have services and providers that can have you feeling and looking better in no time!  Why suffer another day?  Call us now to schedule a complimentary consultation to see how our services can benefit you!
