Headache

Headaches are as varied as the individuals who suffer from them.  Their classifications are typically based on the location of the head pain and its severity.  Some headaches are accompanied by visual, auditory, and/or sensory changes. Treatment of headaches in our facility may accompany any and all of the treatment modalities we have to offer including acupuncture, chiropractic care, functional neurology, bioenergetics, and nutrition.

Vertigo

The classic definition of vertigo includes the condition known as BPPV(Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).  Most people mistake dizziness for Vertigo, when in actuality dizziness is just one of the many, and not the most common symptoms that occur with Vertigo.  Our doctors are board certified functional neurologists and are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of BPPV.

Fatigue

Fatigue is a condition that varies in its complexity.  It is a very generalized term that can be extremely difficult to remedy.  Causes of fatigue may include metabolic dysfunction, autoimmune conditions, primary muscle weakness, vascular insufficiencies, dysautonomias, spinal stenosis, neurodegenerative conditions just to name a few.  Do not dismiss fatigue as a harmless ailment, seek answers as soon as possible.

Concussion

Also known as Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI). Has become an ever increasingly hot button topic for good reason, the symptoms of concussion can be life-altering.  The symptoms that patients present with are numerous and varied but classically include fogginess, dizziness, light and sound sensitivity, severe headaches, severe fatigue with mental or physical exertion, sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression, balance disturbances and vertigo.

The Big 3 symptoms of diabetes include polyuria(increased urination), polydipsia(increased thirst) and polyphagia(increased intake of food).

Weight Loss

This is a major goal of many in our modern society today.  An increase in sedentary lifestyles and the ease in which food is obtained has led to this epidemic.  Dr. Ala is trained in the use of Bio Impedence Analysis (BIA) and its ability to measure lean body mass (bone and muscle) and compare it to fat mass.  Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the 20 pounds of weight you worked so hard to lose didn’t turn out to be muscle mass. Food for thought.

Joint Pain

Seems simple enough, “My shoulder hurts, my hip hurts”.  The question is what is causing it? Arthritis? If so which variety? Cancer? Nerve Pain?  Fracture? Let our doctors assist you in finding out the reason for the pain, and if appropriate the treatment.  Our doctors work hand in hand with your medical counterparts and we will assist you in finding the right doors to walk through.

Migraine

They are classified in two categories “Worse and Worser”.  Actually the two varieties are known as 1. Classical in that the migraine headache is accompanied by some form of aura, which is dependent on the area of the brain in which hypoxia is located.  2. Common, which comes jam-packed with all the fun of a migraine headache including headache localized on one side of the head or eye, nausea, light and sound sensitivity and difficulty focusing.  It does, however, spare you from the aura which can include altered vision, sound, sensation and smell prior to the onset of the headache.

Nerve pain

Burning, shooting, buzzing, prickling, tingling, burning, freezing, deep boring, toothache, no fun no fun no fun.  With the right approach Nerve pain is still difficult to treat but not impossible. Ask our doctors what approach may be right for you.
