Integrative Rehab Medicine combines traditional western medicine with
lifestyle and complementary therapies to promote relief of symptoms, restore meaningful function and create a state of health and wellness. The integrative approach merges the wisdom of osteopathic, functional and rehabilitation medicine with the use of natural products and high quality evidence based interventions to help patients achieve their functional goals. Interventions such as injections, physical and manual therapy, acupuncture and energy medicine modalities are utilized to decrease pain and stimulate healing while the pillars of lifestyle medicine (nutrition, exercise and mental wellbeing) are incorporated to help create a healing environment within the body, mind and spirit.
