Our Story is About Who We Serve
Over the years, many patients enter our clinic doors in significant pain with life stopping ailments. For one reason or another, conventional treatment for their condition failed them. They might have had complications with medicine, surgery may not have been an option in their health state, or all other options have been exhausted.
A Story About a Patient
One patient, John (not real name), came to our office with numbness, tingling, and weakness in his legs that has progressed over the years. He had significant debilitating back pain and knee pain. In addition, John was a diabetic and insulin-dependent. After visiting his primary doctor, he was diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy and told there was no treatment available. He was prescribed gabapentin to help control his neuropathy symptoms, but they didn’t help much, and he suffered from some pretty harsh side-effects from the medication.
John continued to seek help from other physicians but was only met with the same level of care and answers. After years of seeing his life spiral downward, he was angry and determined to try anything to get his life back. This was when we met John.
Because John never got an opportunity to be heard by the variety of clinics he visited, an assumption was made that his symptoms were stemming from his diabetic neuropathy. The doctors he saw never heard that his symptoms were worse in one leg than another, or that they were nearly gone in the morning upon waking and became worse as the day progressed. They never heard him explain that when he got in certain positions, his symptoms nearly disappeared.
Ultimately the doctors missed the diagnoses. John was showing symptoms of compressive neuropathy the comes from the lower back. He was also never told that his type 2 diabetes was controllable and reversible through lifestyle adjustments. No nutrition recommendations were provided.
We’re proud to say that under our care, John’s symptoms were eliminated, and he was able to remove all medications and insulin-related to his diabetes. Most importantly – John was able to resume his life and things that gave him joy.
Why We’re an Integrated Medical Practice
The practitioners at Clearstone Medical Center share a common goal and interest in looking for answers to problems like John’s. Physical therapeutics alone cannot fully help with this type of problem. Everything starts with a proper diagnosis. Without a proper diagnosis, effective treatment can never happen. For chronic, multi-factorial, and complicated conditions like John’s, it takes a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all potential problem areas, and requires time and attention needed for treatment.
Because of cases like John’s, Clearstone Medical Center is now a comprehensive, integrated medical practice that combines multiple different healthcare disciplines under one roof.
The Right Diagnosis Can Save Your Life
Did you know that 80% of a doctor’s diagnosis comes from what the patient says alone? John was given the wrong diagnosis and suffered for years because of it. We understand the importance of taking the time to get a correct diagnosis. We listen carefully, ask the right questions, and use advanced diagnostic procedures, including digital X-ray, diagnostic ultrasound, MRI/CT analysis, comprehensive bloodwork, urinalysis, and stool analysis.
