Low back pain is #1 cause of disability worldwide!

Low back pain is #1 cause of disability worldwide!

IfIO'Brien, Linda_9_19_2011_ER563LFLined you are suffering from low back pain, you are not alone.  Nearly 80% of Americans report low back pain at any given time and world-wide low back pain is the leading cause of disability.  Back pain robs the enjoyment from life.  Back pain makes social situations unbearable, leads to relationship strain and creates an environment where the simplest tasks like putting on your shoes can cause anxiety.

It has been said that suffering is a normal natural part of life and that all of us will experience pain.  This may be true, but ask any back pain sufferer what they would do to get rid of the pain and most will answer, “ANYTHING!”

If you suffer with back pain, do you know where the pain is coming from?  Have you had countless chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy sessions and still deal with the daily grind of morning stiffness and pain followed by a deep ache that never leaves?  Are you getting tired of your feet falling asleep and sharp shooting pain when you bend over to wash the dishes or brush your teeth?  Tired of taking handfuls of ibuprophen or Tylenol® with no relief in sight?  Have you gone to your doctor again and again only to leave with muscle relaxers and oxycodone? Are you tired of being told,  “wait until you can’t take the pain anymore, then we’ll  do surgery.”  While you see your friends and family who have had back surgery continue to suffer and still find no relief despite the procedure.

Do you want diabetes to crush your dreams?

depression picDon’t let diabetes crush your dreams!

 

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing epidemics in the country.  The speed with which Americans are developing this disease is baffling.  Many people are finding out that they are pre-diabetic in their 20’s and 30’s in contrast to 30 years ago when most type 2 diabetes developed in a person’s 40’s and 50’s.  The reason behind this explosion of diabetes is the over-consumption of sugar.  Sugar is being consumed by Americans at unprecedented rates and this sugar addiction is leading to more and more cases of premature and preventable diabetes.

Diabetes causes so many health problems that they are almost too numerous to list.  Poor energy, bad circulation, loss of vision, poor sleep, pain, numbness and tingling, peripheral neuropathy, gangrene, and loss of balance and coordination are just a few of the many, many symptoms associated with the over consumption of sugar and diabetic conditions.

Diabetes can also affect brain cells and cause type 3 diabetes, better known as Alzheimer’s disease.  The attack on the nervous system can be devastating, leading to loss of identity, loss of memory and unbearable pain and suffering.  Amputation, complete vision loss and many other devastating consequences can happen when the sugar regulation is unchecked.  The consequences are almost always the same: a life of never ending doctors’ visits, unending medication prescription, self-injection of insulin, poor quality of life and crushed dreams and life goals.

Fortunately, there is a solution!  At Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor, Colorado we off many preventative programs to stop diabetes before it happens as well as numerous nutritional and therapeutic treatments for the condition once it has been established as a disease process.

Our team of medical doctors, nurses and therapists work to educate our patients on making the right food choices and we provide an alternative lifestyle treatment that that differs from the typical treatment for diabetes.  We have a long-term and caring approach that incorporates dietary and nutritional changes, exercise programs and evaluation of alternative treatments to re-regulate insulin naturally.  We often see a reduction in the need for insulin shots, medication and many, many of our previously diabetic patients have been taken off their prescription medication for diabetes by their prescribing providers because of the amazing diabetes reversing programs we have.

Our patients report less pain, more function, better sensation and feeling in the legs and feet, better energy, fewer breathing conditions, better vision, and most importantly, our patients are educated on how to make the correct food and lifestyle choices to get them moving toward a healthier and happier life!

If you or someone you know is suffering from diabetes, pre-diabetes, low energy, peripheral neuropathy, why suffer?  Call us today to see what our amazing packages and treatments can do to improve quality, reverse disease processes and get you moving toward the life you deserve.  Don’t suffer, call us today!PP Yoga Lady LOW RES

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!

Are Pins and Needles Driving You Nuts?


MR C_Spine
Pins and Needles Windsor, Co 
 

Pins and Needles, numbness and tingling, peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, complicated radiculopathy, call it what you will but whatever you call it, it’s no fun!  Numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, or legs and feet can rob you of your quality life in ways that other symptoms and pain will never do.  Patients often reports that they feel that they have a “balled-up” sock sensation under their feet, that they feel they  are walking on rocks all the time or are constantly dropping items or unable to pick things up because of the debilitating symptoms.

Peripheral neuropathy can have several causes including complication of chemotherapy, diabetes, nerve injury due to trauma, infection or tumor and others.  The symptoms can vary from mild to very severe burning pain, with loss or altered sensation in both hands and feet.  The symptoms can arise many weeks or months after a car crash, can come from nerve injury during surgery and can also be a complication of weight gain.

Loss of sensation in the hands robs you of your main tool to experience the world through touch.  Imagine not being able to feel your child’s hand in your, not be able to feel the touch of your spouse or lover or not knowing that you have been injured because of the nerve damage.  Many diabetic patients must have limbs amputated due to complication of cuts and infections that they are unable to feel because of the peripheral neuropathy. Many patients that experience the pain of sciatica and radiculopathy have complications that lead to numbness and tingling in the feet, side of the leg or toes.

Fortunately, at Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor, Colorado we may have solution to your suffering!  We have many therapies that help relieve nerve pressure such as traction of the specific are where the nerve is compressed, increased circulation with the amazing Power Plate® and even medical anesthetic injections that can re-awaken nerves that have been chronically damaged. We have an amazing weight loss program that can get you back to normal weight quickly and teach you how to keep the weight off for life!  We have combination therapies that can get the sensation back into your arms, hands, legs, feet and toes!  If you or someone you know is suffering with these debilitating symptoms, call us today to get your sensation and your life back!
