We Help Set You on the Path to Improved or Maintained Health and Wellness
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
In recent years, doctors have learned that the body has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue. PRP Therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can also help your body achieve balance and health. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their care. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling, and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient’s range of motion, while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Many of our patients come to see our physician to address a specific pain symptom or illnesses. While our doctor will address each patient’s specific condition with care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a specific care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with your care? The goal of our care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal, we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Fort Myers clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
At Physicians Medical Group of Southwest Florida, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home. These exercises can help improve the effectiveness of your care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced physician will help you feel good while also help your body achieve balance and health.
Spinal And Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced physician such as Barry Butler, MD, can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings in our clinic, as well as at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 239-936-1233 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
