Many patients flock to Dr. Sonners for Applied Kinesiology (AK). AK is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and emotional aspects of health using manual muscle testing with other standards methods of diagnosis. Dr. Jason finds a muscle that is unbalanced and determines why that muscle is not functioning properly. He then works out the treatment that will best balance the patient’s muscles. Treatments include specific joint adjustments, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupressure therapies, clinical nutrition, dietary management, counseling skills, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures.
You won’t want to miss a workshop by Dr. Sonners. As a Certified Chiropractic Wellness Professional (CCWP), he inspires all of us to live to our fullest potential, whether it be through exercise, nutrition, positive attitude, goal setting, or the importance of pre/post rehabilitation… they all have a major impact on our health and the quality of our lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
Added enriched oxygen does need to be monitored. Ask your doctor and trained hyperbari professional. Of course, if enriched oxygen is not being supplemented into the chamber, this is not an issue.
Hyperbarics has a very good safety record. Many hyperbaric centers report only mild ear discomfort as a contraindication to therapy. Such a discomfort is similar to the ear pressure felt when ascending or descending in altitude. These discomforts may be minimized by descending at a slower rate. Discuss these concerns with the treating physician and hyperbaric technician.
In the United States, there are certain indications which insurance covers. This includes gangrene, radiation burns, carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness. Traditionally insurance does not cover these treatments for the conditions we are using it for in our office.
Mild Hyperbarics is generally a pressure protocol up to 1.3 ATA or 4 psi. High Pressure Hyperbarics involves pressures above 1.5 ATA. These pressures are achieved in a variety of chambers currently available on the market, including monoplace, multiplace and portable chambers.
We offer HBOT treatments in our office as well as a rental or purchase option for the ability to do the treatments at home.
Each case is different and the doctors may regulate protocols, depending on a patient’s disease, prognosis and improvements through the course of therapy.
Traditionally HBOT has been used for diabetic foot wounds, air and gas embolism, carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation, gas gangrene, thermal burns, decompression sickness and acute mountain sickness. Due to the healing effects of oxygen therapy HBOT is now also used for cerebral palsy, brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, ALS, anemia, wound and scar healing, post stroke care, post surgical care, improved performance, dementia and bells palsy… just to name a few. Visit our conditions treated tab for more information.
Hyperbarics is a technology in which the air pressure in the environment is increased. When a person’s body is placed in a more pressure environment, it absorbs more oxygen molecules per volume of compressed air. The body normally transports oxygen via the hemoglobin of the red blood cells. By increasing the air pressure, oxygen is then driven into the body’s fluids, allowing a super-saturation of tissues and organs with oxygen. The increased pressure infuses the body with oxygen, even reaching injuries with damaged circulation. An example of this is a blood clot in the brain (stroke).
