Auto Accident Injury

Here at Rise2Health in Portland, OR , we specialize in helping you get back to feeling like yourself after an auto accident. We know that it can be a scary time and we make it our goal to ensure that you feel great as quickly as possible.

An auto accident can cause many different issues. Often an accident can throw your neck, your spine, or even your entire body out of alignment. Our trained professionals are able to work with you to find the exact cause of each of your issues and help you through exercises as well as regular chiropractic care so that you begin to feel like yourself again.

One of the main injuries that can occur in an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a sudden movement of the head being pushed quickly backward and then forward. It can even happen side to side. Whiplash destabilizes your spine and can even cause pain in other areas. You may notice shoulder pain, blurred vision, neck pain, increased headaches, dizziness, arm pain, and much more.

Chiropractic care is important after an auto accident because if the effects go untreated, they can become a long-term problem that will continue to affect you for many years to come. In an auto accident, you may not feel the side effects right away. In fact, it may take weeks or even months to notice the full effect of the accident.

Even if you had a minor auto accident, you will want to see a chiropractor to ensure that everything is still aligned. If you are feeling any pain, we at NAME will work with you to take the necessary steps to help you feel better.

If you have any questions regarding chiropractic care after an auto accident, contact us today at (503) 286-4400.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat both men and women experiencing imbalances or drops in their naturally-occurring hormones. Hormones are responsible for most of your essential bodily functions, so when they are disrupted in any way, cascade effects across all your systems can ensue.

Most commonly, BHRT is utilized to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, although we can use them to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Mental clarity
  • Low sex drive or libido
  • Incontinence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Andropause
  • Fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Insulin resistance
  • Adrenal and thyroid disorders
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer

Symptoms that are common with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, and low libido can be dramatically improved with BHRT. For many other conditions, BHRT can improve vitality, energy, mental clarity, mood, weight loss, and even muscle strength!

BHRT comes in several different forms, and at Rise2Health, we carefully take into consideration your symptoms, medical conditions, and history before making a recommendation for a specific treatment. Options may include:

  • BioTE® pellet therapy
  • Compounded natural hormones
  • Nutraceutical supplementation

Delivery of BHRT depends largely on the specific therapy option, but include:

  • Implanted pellets
  • Creams
  • Patches
  • Gels
  • Injections

Hormones are a vital part of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. No one needs to suffer the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and at Rise2Health, we are confident we can find the right solution for your unique needs.

If you have questions about how BHRT can help you or would like to request an appointment, call our friendly office today at (503) 286-4400!

Botox®️ Portland, OR

Botox®️

For years Botox has helped so many men and women successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. As people age, they long for a more youthful appearance. Botox is able to give them this.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle is then not able to contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used on the forehead lines, around the eyes, and frown lines. Typically wrinkles are caused as we age, but they are also brought on by sun damage and gravity.

Receiving Botox actually only takes a few short minutes, and anesthesia is not required. You will simply get injected with a fine needle into the specific muscle and feel only mild discomfort.

Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you. We want to ensure that you are happy with your results and that you never feel like you have any unanswered questions. We are here for you before and after your treatment.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Portland, OR

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Rise2Health is proud to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to our patients. PRP has continued to grow as a reliable way to effectively treat sexual dysfunction, and even has aesthetic applications such as improving overall skin and hair health.

How does it work?
Our blood predominantly consists of plasma, which carries red and white blood cells and platelets. PRP is created by drawing some of the patient’s own blood and then using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets within a sample of the plasma. This concentrated sample of platelets is then combined with the original blood sample. We can then inject this platelet-rich blood into the treatment area. While results may not occur immediately, many women experience improved sensitivity, functionality, and muscle tone while improving the performance of sexual function and bladder control.

Testosterone Replacement for Men

For men, the primary sex hormone is testosterone. It is produced by the testes, and the level of production is controlled by the pituitary gland and brain. From the testes, testosterone moves through the blood to perform a wide range of essential bodily functions, including:

  • Red blood cell production
  • Sperm production
  • Bone mass
  • Muscle mass and strength
  • Libido
Testosterone production is at its highest between the ages of 20 and 30 and begins to decrease gradually after about age 35. As testosterone levels decrease, it can cause several problems which may include:

  • Diminished sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Urinary problems
  • Low sperm count
  • Enlarged or tender breasts (caused by an imbalance of testosterone and estradiol)
  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Decreased bone strength
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased fertility
  • Depression
  • Hair loss

In addition to testosterone, men also produce estradiol – a necessary form of estrogen created by the conversion of testosterone. If these sexual hormones become imbalanced, bodily chaos can ensue, potentially wreaking havoc on your health, energy, love life, and confidence. Thankfully, there are several bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) options available to men who’ve been diagnosed with low testosterone (“Low T”) or a sex hormone imbalance.

At Rise2Health, the primary routes of therapy we offer include oral hormones, creams and gels, and pellet therapy, which are implants the size of a rice grain placed under the skin to deliver a consistent, low dose of testosterone for up to six months. These hormones are derived from naturally-occurring sources, which means the body doesn’t know the difference between the therapeutic hormones and your own natural hormones (referred to as endogenous hormones). This dramatically reduces the number of side effects and increases the overall efficacy of the treatment.

Benefits of BHRT include:

  • Reduced risk of diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, and stroke
  • Improved libido
  • Increased sperm count and better fertility
  • More energy
  • Improved muscle and bone strength
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
  • Reduced body fat and better maintenance of lean body mass

If you feel that you are experiencing symptoms of low testosterone or hormonal imbalance, don’t wait – contact us today at (503) 286-4400 for an appointment!

Weight Loss Portland, OR

Weight Loss

Weight loss is something with which millions of people struggle. As you know, your weight doesn’t just contribute to your physical appearance. Your weight and the amount of fat in your body can help or hurt your body by contributing to either a healthy physique or lead to medical issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Weight loss is not just about restricting calories, which is what most people try to do. Weight loss is really about correcting your nutrition, managing your stress, and for some, working with or around chronic diseases and medical conditions.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy (proliferative therapy), ligament reconstruction therapy, and fibro-osseous injection therapy, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to strengthen joints weakened by traumatic or overuse injury. Joints weakened when ligaments or tendon attachments are stretched, torn, or fragmented, become hypermobile and painful. Traditional approaches with surgery and anti-inflammatory drugs often fail to stabilize the joint and relieve this pain permanently. Prolotherapy, with its unique ability to directly address the cause of the instability, can repair the weakened sites and produce new fibrous tissues, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint.
