Health Rehabilitation Services Monte
Universal Health & Rehabilitation is a facility that houses a variety of healing modalities all focused on helping to create health in the body. The facility offers Physical Medicine and Pain Management through Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture and Massage Therapy techniques.
Chiropractic Health Care is the #1 Alternative Health Care discipline in the United States, and the leader of the Wholistic Health Care movement. Chiropractic works on the premise that all disease is caused by one of three reasons: structural, nutritional or emotional imbalance. Doctors of Chiropractic deal directly with structural imbalance by detecting and removing vertebral subluxations in the spinal column. A subluxation is defined as any malposition or irregular movement pattern of spinal vertebrae, which can cause disruptions in the normal nerve flow. Subluxations not only cause pain and discomfort, but also have far reaching effects on the functioning of normal body processes. Chiropractors use Spinal Adjustments to gently restore normal vertebral motion and position, thereby reducing nerve interference and allowing the body to work at optimum function. Chiropractors also concern themselves with making sure their patients are eating the right foods, taking proper nutritional supplements and eliminating toxins to maximize the nutritional balance that is so important for overall health.

While chiropractic helps restore proper joint motion, Physical Therapy is focused on strengthening and balancing the associated soft tissue. This means muscles, ligaments, tendons and capsular structures. Our facility is equipped with passive modalities such as Electric Muscle Stimulation, Ultrasound, Russian Stimulation, TENS units, Hot/Cold packs and Traction. These modalities are used to reduce muscular spasm and inflammation and restore normal muscle tone. Once this is accomplished, the treatment will be directed towards functional restoration in the form of therapeutic exercises. Our facility is equipped with state of the art rehabilitation equipment, and treatment is supervised by a licensed Physical Therapist at all times. The therapists will teach the patients how to strengthen their damaged areas safely, and monitor their programs throughout their treatment program.

This age-old treatment is receiving a lot of attention for its effectiveness in treating all kinds of disease processes. It is also one that is free of side effects, and helps restore harmony to the body so that it may function properly. Acupuncture works on the premise that a “life force” or “Chi” circulates in the body along specific pathways or “meridians”. When there are blockages in the flow of “Chi” along one of these pathways, the harmony in the body will be disrupted. Acupuncturists administer small painless needles along specific points along the blocked meridian to restore normal flow of Life Force.

Some of latest researches in the field of clinical nutrition points out that certain foods are better for certain blood types. This amazing discovery might be able to give us an exact blueprint of what foods are best for us as individuals. Our office also helps outline nutritional programs for specific conditions such as weight loss, detoxification, muscle building, athletic performance and overall wellness. We also carry a full line of nutritional supplement products and will help you make an educated choice as to which supplements are best for you.
At Universal Health & Rehabilitation, we have the luxury of having board certified Medical Doctors and/or Nurse Practitioners on site that specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This allows us to view the patients case from a medical perspective, and is the perfect complement to our conservative approach. These Health Care Professionals work with the other health care providers at our office to coordinate physical therapy and massage therapy programs, provide medical pain management in the form of trigger point injections, transdermal patches as well as management of pain via medications. Our Doctors also are able to make the proper medical recommendations for those cases that do not respond to conservative treatment approaches.
Diagnostics - Neurodiagnostics
Neurology is the study of the nervous system and how it is functioning. Problems can arise in the nervous system and result in loss of neurologic functioning. This can include numbness into the hands or feet, sensory loss, weakness, and a host of other complications. Our team of Clinicians can help properly diagnose a neurologic condition with high tech diagnostic equipment. They can also help outline a specific treatment program to assist in the management of neurologic dysfunction.
Computerized Range of Motion / Muscle Testing
With the use of computerized diagnostic equipment, our team of clinicians can objectively quantify the amount of functional loss associated with a specific condition. This objective test can help establish a baseline in range of motion and muscle strength, as well as, monitor progress throughout the treatment program.
One of our most popular programs, Massage Therapy helps alleviate muscle tension and stress with the application of various hands-on techniques. This form of therapy has added benefits of stress reduction, lymphatic drainage, and muscle repair. Our massage therapists are professionally licensed, and are trained to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. This treatment is the perfect compliment to the many therapies offered at our health care office.
