To identify the root cause of our patients’ concerns, we rely on a blend of integrative and functional medicine techniques at the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine. If you’d like to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled pain management doctors, please give us a call.
Have you or someone you care about been grappling with persistent pain or weight problems? Have you visited a conventional doctor who simply prescribed painkillers or diets without delving deeper into the issue?
At Ramos Center, we understand that each patient is unique and requires a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan. Through a combination of integrative and functional medicine, we investigate and uncover the true source of our patients’ health issues. While there are similarities between integrative and functional medicine approaches, they also have distinct differences. At Ramos Center, we utilize both holistic practices to help our patients achieve optimal health and a pain-free lifestyle, rather than solely relying on prescriptions.
Integrative Medicine is an approach to healthcare that encompasses not only physical ailments but also considers emotional, mental, social, and environmental factors that influence a person’s well-being. It emphasizes a fluid relationship between the patient and physician to facilitate easy communication, which is crucial for effective treatment. This approach requires the physician to understand the patient’s unique circumstances to design an appropriate treatment plan.
The diagnosis process in integrative medicine utilizes standard medical techniques to ensure that the patient does not require extreme medical interventions. This may involve blood tests and x-rays. The physician then creates a customized treatment plan based on the patient’s medical condition and lifestyle factors. The treatment plan often considers both conventional and alternative approaches, in addition to nutrition and exercise, to promote a full recovery.
Functional medicine is a healthcare approach that focuses on the underlying causes of pain and weight gain, unlike integrative medicine, which is primarily focused on treating the patient as a whole. After identifying the root cause, a personalized treatment plan is created. Functional medicine uses many of the same treatment options as integrative medicine and focuses on holistic treatment of the patient.
While the diagnosis process differentiates integrative and functional medicine, the treatment plans and methods are similar. Treatment options may include acupuncture, reflexology, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, exercise, and talk therapy.
At Ramos Center, we utilize both integrative and functional medicine to diagnose and treat our patients effectively. Our clinics are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and our staff is highly trained in both approaches to ensure our patients receive top-quality care. We believe that long-lasting pain relief and weight loss are achievable, and we are committed to helping our patients achieve their goals.
