Dana Point CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2007
Martin Geoffreys, Dr. of Chiropractic Medicine, opens medical office in Dana Point, CA. serving Southern California. Dr. Geoffrey's patient population leads an active lifestyle and aims to maintain a 'quality of life.' Geoffreys' practice focuses on those who participate in competitive and recreational sports, and includes 'weekend warriors.' The doctor also treats patients with post surgical pain syndrome, the chronic and/or acute pain that may occur with associated scar tissue.
Located at 28 Monarch Bay Plaza, Suite L Dr. Geoffreys can be reached for a consultation or treatment at: 949 248-1314.
Dr. Martin Geoffreys' goal is to identify and treat the root of pain. After seeing the benefits of the Graston Technique, the doctor earned certification, and brings these effective treatment protocols to patients.
The Graston Technique is a relatively new and innovative method for treating acute and chronic pain and/or loss of function. Usually the pain occurs as a result of injury casued by car accidents, or from cumulative stress disorders due to repetitive movements. Pain can also come from scar tissue formation following some surgical procedures, and often neglected in post-surgical care. Patients report that though the shape of the Graston may resemble a boomerang, once pain has vanished, it won't return!
Geoffreys incorporates The Graston Technique into treatments and offers pain reduction and can lead to total relief. The Graston is non-invasive, and the benefits enhance other treatments. Patients experience a positive outcome after a short course of treatment sessions.
Former Mayer of Dana Point, CA., Lara Anderson, suffered from a degenerative back condition that left her unable to get out of bed. After undergoing a series of Dr. Geoffreys' treatments, she is fully recovered and now expecting a baby and has no back pains whatsoever.
"I was beginning to wonder if pain was just going to be part of my life. I am delighted to say, it's not…and is no longer a drain on my much needed energy as a new mom. I am grateful to Dr. Geoffreys helping me to get over the limitations that the injury imposed, and back to my life."
The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization enabling effective treatment and relief from pain. Specially designed stainless steel instruments enable the doctor to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Dr. Geoffreys is able to quickly break down adhesions and scar tissue that's formed between muscle fibers due to the stress from wear and tear and/or as scar tissue formation that often follows surgery.
The Graston Technique was originally developed for professional sports teams. It's now used by many university athletic departments, and clinically, to manage work related injuries. This Technique is a non-invasive treatment that can offer a solution for almost anyone with pain.
Graston Technique® is effective for treating effectively all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or acute and post surgical. The Graston Technique offers many advantages to the patient such as:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
For most patients, Dr. Geoffreys suggests treatment 1-2 times per week is sufficient. He has seen his patients relieved of pain within a brief treatment period of 1-4 weeks. Dr. Geoffreys' patients report that they are amazed that the Graston Technique can relieve pain from injuries, scar tissue and fascia restrictions in such a short time frame.
Dr. Martin Geoffreys serves as an Examiner for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE), worked with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the National Off-Road Biking Association, and the Pro Surfing Tour of America.
"My involvement with the pro tours has given me a variety of experience with chronic sports injuries, especially those compounded by continuous performance. My goal is to help the body to heal before further damage occurs, and this is the same in my practice. My patient population includes weekend warriors, exercise buffs, the aging baby-boomer and accident victims. At the Chiropractic/Sports Injury Clinic in Dana Point, we encourage healing before getting 'back on the horse,' and ultimately help our patients to live pain free. One of the most innovative and effective treatments is the Graston Technique protocol. This Technique is especially useful for patients with acute and chronic soft tissue injuries, and an ideal tool for treating active individuals", says Dr. Geoffreys. "More and more baby-boomers stay active, and aches and pains from movement-related injuries occur. This treatment Technique can shorten the length of treatment time."
In addition to the Graston Technique, Dr. Geoffreys advises his patients to be proactive with their health. The doctor offers personalized options for a pain free life, including gentle exercises specific to body type and injury. Dr. Geoffreys encourages patients to be particularly aware of posture, rest and sleep, and discusses his patient's best sleep positions.
"Sleep is restorative and necessary for quality of life. It's normal to move frequently through out the sleep cycle. Resting/sleep positions held for too long will result in tightness and aches and pains during the day. Good posture is important at all times-and is significant for proper alignment. As a solution for a more restorative rest, we've created the 'Relax Right Pillows'. The design offers a comfortable advantage, and is so unique and effective, the pillow holds a US patent. The Relax Right Pillow is perfect for side and back sleepers and will comfortably and correctly support the spine, " says Martin Geoffreys. 'We have developed a child's version too. As a parent, I know, it's never too early to promote correct posture. Good posture equates to good health. Proper posture protects the organs and maintains the spine.'
