ENCORE: A Holistic Approach to Pain, Part 1
January 5, 2021
Addressing the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction: Dr. Arkady Lipnitsky takes a holistic approach to pain at RebalanceNYC, www.rebalanceNYC.com, a multidisciplinary anti-aging and rejuvenation clinic in midtown Manhattan. Calling steroid shots, perfunctory physical therapy, drugs and surgery mere “bandaid” approaches to pain conditions, Dr. Lipnitsky prefers to analyze the underlying causes of low back, neck, knee, shoulder and hip problems, which he says can usually be traced to maladaptive movement patterns. He believes prolonged sitting is a fundamental contributor to chronic pain that runs counter to our evolutionary blueprint. A pioneer in the use of a variety of modalities including movement analysis, electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), extracorporeal shock wave therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells, needling, along with nutritional support, Dr. Lipnitsky individualizes programs to help athletes, performers, and ordinary strivers achieve their goals. The key is to develop a consistent program of beneficial movement and to unlearn counter-productive patterns that prolong the injury cycle. In many cases, joint replacement and back surgery can be avoided with less invasive and more broadly therapeutic techniques. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: How Healing Works, Part 1
September 24, 2020
A leading advocate for complementary and alternative medicine, Dr. Wayne Jonas, reveals the often-missed components that our current healthcare system overlooks. He wrote, "How Healing Works: Get Well and Stay Well Using Your Hidden Power to Heal." He's a military physician and former head of the Office of Alternative Medicine (now the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) and the Samueli Institute, Dr. Jonas believes that natural medicine may hold the answer to the current opioid epidemic. Why does the U.S. spend over twice the dollars per capita of other nations’ healthcare systems, but lags in critical health care benchmarks? Why is Americans’ life expectancy DECLINING for the first time in recorded history? Why should the placebo effect not be dismissed as inconsequential? How can it be harnessed to produce healing? Why is the military pioneering acceptance of natural methods? How does Dr. Jonas counter skeptics who claim research on complementary medicine is a waste of time and money? Dr. Jonas shares his vision of where healthcare in America is headed. He recommends that patients get started now working with their doctors to develop effective, collaborative health programs.
