In addition to providing integrative family medicine, Dr. James Fialk, ND, L.Ac. also has a special focus in integrative orthopedics treating acute injury and chronic conditions associated with pain or impaired function.

Integrative Orthopedics

Dr. Fialk's approach in treating acute injury or chronic conditions associated with pain and/or impaired musculoskeletal function involves an assessment that includes a health history, physical exam, and review of medical records if needed.

 

In-office therapies to decrease pain and improve function may include:

 

  • Acupuncture (with or without electrical stimulation)

  • Percussive massage therapy (ie Theragun)

  • Tui-na (Chinese soft tissue and myofascial release)

  • Cold Laser

  • Cupping

  • Gua-sha

  • Joint Mobilization (ie adjustments using Activator method) 

  • Kinesio-taping

While a single treatment can sometimes resolve an acute condition, a series of five to fifteen treatments, or more, may needed for many chronic problems.

Dr. Fialk collaborates with all involved in your care to ensure your health needs are met. When it is in your best interest, Dr. Fialk can refer you to another practitioner (ie. massage therapist, chiropractor,  etc.) for evaluation and treatment.
