Holistic Medicine and Non-Surgical Treatment in Malvern
Non-Surgical Treatment with Holistic Medicine
Holistic medicine is an approach to medicine that evaluates the entire body and how it functions together, not just one specific area. Holistic treatment is often comprehensive, incorporating multiple specialties to get better outcomes. Aligned Medical Group offers a holistic medicine approach to care, including physical medicine, chiropractic care, cell and tissue biologics, therapeutic massage, medical weight loss, functional medicine and nutrition, guided home exercise programs and various injections.
Holistic medicine practitioners see each patient as a whole person, rather than one injured part, and they utilize modern medical treatments in conjunction with holistic approaches. Our holistic practitioners use a variety of tests, aside from a detailed medical exam, to learn the key areas in need of work within your body. Laboratory work up, X-Ray and MRI, hair sample testing, stool testing or urinalysis may be recommended. If you have knee pain, for example, many physicians perform steroid injections to reduce or eliminate the pain, and that is where exam and treatment end. At Aligned, we uncover the source of pain and work to heal the problem. We also look at your ankles, arches of your feet, leg length, muscle balance, and daily habits, just to name a few things so we can learn how and why your knee pain came about, so we can offer a solution.

Different Surgical Alternatives through Holistic Medicine in Malvern
If you’ve been battling pain for months without relief, you may be wondering whether long term medication or even surgery is the answer. Of course, we understand that drugs with side effects and surgery may be the very last thing you want to do right now. Before resorting to drugs and surgery, consult with our team here at Aligned Medical Group first to find out how we can provide you with more natural, integrative solutions that could offer you relief without the risks of drugs and surgery.
Here are just some of the natural treatment options we offer patients dealing with conditions such as severe or chronic forms of pain, arthritis, bowel and gut problems, chronic fatigue and fogginess, or “yo-yo” dieting:
Holistic Medicine – Home Exercise Program
Part of getting healthy and staying healthy is increasing your activity at home. We understand that being active can be challenging when battling conditions like bone-on-bone arthritis, pinched nerves and sciatica, lower back pain or systemic problems like chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. We’re here to get to the root cause of your ailments and guide you to increase your activities and exercise safely and comfortably at home.
Holistic Medicine – Chiropractic Care
Seeing a chiropractor before you resort to surgery may be one of the best decisions you make. After all, chiropractic care may be able to provide you with relief from anything from neck and back pain to foot, knee pain or shoulder pain. Chiropractic care focuses on improving mobility in your spine, or other joints such as knees and shoulders, to improve circulation and healing, reduce pressure on cartilage, spinal discs, or nerves, boost the body’s natural immune response and reduce pain and swelling. Following the recommendations of a chiropractor now, may mean preventing surgery. For more information, visit our chiropractic information page.
Non-Surgical Treatment – Trigger Point Injections
Another less invasive alternative to surgery is trigger point injection. Trigger points are focused, ball-like knots in muscle tissue. Poor posture, stress, injuries, muscle or joint overuse and improper lifting habits may create muscle tension and stress, leading to trigger points. When trigger points form, they can become painful, even referring pain away from the trigger point location, or create headache-like, or sciatica-like pain.
Trigger point injections contain a solution called Sarapin to numb the pain, calm nerves and muscle tightness, and reduce inflammation. Sarapin is homeopathic, without side effects and calms muscle and nerve tissue. This type of injection is administered directly into the trigger point. This is particularly helpful for patients dealing with painful and frequent muscle aches, headaches, tension, or postural fatigue.
Non-Surgical Treatment – Functional Medicine and Nutrition
Your body is amazingly complex. We have delicate balances of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and bacteria throughout our body, including the bowels and gut. Balance can easily be disrupted from exposures to alcohol, smoking, sugar intake, heavy metal accumulation, food sensitivities or allergies, and medications. Whether you are seeking to improve your general health and wellness, or treat a specific medical condition, we recommend detailed work up of how your body is balanced.
When the bacteria in your gut become imbalanced, many ailments can ensue, including, but not limited to; auto immune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatic conditions, fatigue, bloating and weight gain. Mineral and hormone balance is important for concentration, healthy body weight and energy levels. At Aligned Medical, we do on-site and off-site testing, looking at things like blood, urine hair and stool analysis. From this data, we can make lifestyle recommendations, dietary and supplement changes and sometimes medications so you begin feeling good again.
Human Cell and Tissue Biologics
Using cell and tissue biologics, we can stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Whether you are dealing with a serious injury or a chronic disease, our medical team may be able to help you lead a healthier, happier life thanks to regenerative cell and tissue treatments. Products are extracted from either your own blood, or from donated tissues. Umbilical cords have millions of stem cell, billions of exosomes and a cocktail of things called cytokines and growth factors. It’s a blend of natural healing.Donated tissues from umbilical cords are FDA regulated and very safe to use. The donating mother and baby are healthy and unharmed from the collection of the cord, which happens immediately after birth. If you suffering with cartilage loss, joint tears, rotator cuff tears, meniscus or labral tears, call us to learn how these powerful healing remedies may help you.
