Treatments & Therapies
Allergy Shots (Immunotherapy)
Allergen immunotherapy, or allergy shots, is a long-term treatment that decreases symptoms of allergic rhinitis, allergic asthma, conjunctivitis (eye allergy) or alleries to stinging insect bites.
Allergy injections decrease sensitivity to allergens and often lead to lasting relief of allergy symptoms even after treatment has stopped. This makes it a cost-effective and beneficial treatment for many patients.
As your Medical Home, Premier Family Health endeavors to bring you quality and comprehensive medical services at one convenient location. Recently, we have added in-house physical therapy to our menu of services for patients suffering with chronic pain and those rehabilitating from joint replacements and other orthopedic issues. Additionally, physical therapy can increase muscle strength, flexibility and balance. Ask for more information.
Whole Body Cryotherapy (coming soon)
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a hypothermic or "cold treatment" application designed to reduce muscoloskeletal pain and inflammation. WBC stimulates the nervous system through skin receptors, causing dramatic peripheral vasoconstriction or narrowing of blood vessels. This induces adaptive changes correlating with effects of analgesia, reduction of inflammation, and increases in serum markers for tissue repair. WBC is purported to enhance recovery following exercise and facilitate rehabilitation post-injury.
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatments are administered individually via a CryoSauna. The cryosauna uses gasiform nitrogen to rapidly lower the skin's top layer to 32°F while cabin temperature drops to a range of (minus) - 220°F to -274°F. During the two to three minutes of extreme cold, the brain stimulates the body's organ regulatory functions resulting in increased energy, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, and overall system self-healing.
