Hydrodissection

What is joint pain?

Joint pain is a general term that includes any discomfort you experience in one or more of your joints. Your joints are the points in your body where two or more bones meet and rely on ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage, bones, and nerves to function properly.

Any injury or disease that affects the many components that make up your joints may result in pain. The How Clinic works closely with patients who live high-stress lives, including emergency room doctors, nurses, first responders, members of the military, and athletes. Due to their occupation and lifestyle, this group of people is especially at risk of joint pain, which can affect many aspects of their life.

The How Clinic specializes in helping you get the treatment you need to alleviate your pain and restore joint function so you can get back to work and your active lifestyle.

What are the common causes of joint pain?

You can develop joint pain from many causes. Some of the most common include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Shoulder Pain Treatment
  • Tendon Injury

These causes may develop after an acute injury or from overuse. Most commonly, a person’s pain is caused by a combination of several of these. In any case, your joint pain affects not only your physical health but may also affect your emotional and financial health.

How is joint pain treated?

Dr. John How at The How Clinic in Encinitas, CA dedicates himself to offering innovative treatments for alleviating joint pain. It all starts with listening to your story and examining you. Dr. John How and his team will also often use modern ultrasound imaging to safely view the structures in and around your joint and how they move. Based on where your pain is and what is found while examining you from your musculoskeletal ultrasound, they conduct guided interventions to alleviate the underlying cause of your pain, which may include:

  • Injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or other products into the joint.
  • Alleviation of pressure on pinched nerves
  • Release of stuck muscles, nerves and connective tissue
  • Removal of fluid from inside the joint

Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB)

What is SGB?

SGB is a sympathetic nervous system “Re-Boot” used to improve the functional health of patients suffering from a variety of conditions. SGB has been used to treat military personnel for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), behavioral illnesses and other disorders following their return to civilian society, as well as shown efficacy in improving symptoms of depression, anxiety, long-term pain syndromes, stress disorders, and sexual dysfunction in the general population. Additionally, athletes have begun to use SGB to synchronize their brain and body to maximize optimal competitive performance.

How does SGB work?

The sympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) is responsible for the body’s emergency “fight or flight” response. It controls our heart rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, and the response of our eyes to light, which are the body’s responses to stress, perception of pain, the ability to relax or focus our thoughts, and to function sexually. When the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is overwhelmed, generally from extreme stress, it becomes programmed to an inappropriately high set point. This causes the body to remain in a state of extreme, survival-level response. This is a stress injury, in which the brain is inappropriately stuck in a “fight or flight” response and a great solution is to reset that part of the nervous system.  In the same way as rebooting a computer can free the system from an inappropriate or dysfunctional program, SGB works to reset the nervous system and restore it to its normal settings.

Who is a good candidate for SGB?

 An evaluation for the use of SGB therapy is right for anyone suffering from PTSD, depression, stress, anxiety, chronic pain and many other behavioral challenges which prevent them from being physically and emotionally present in their everyday life. SGB may also be a helpful therapy if you routinely struggle with insomnia, fogginess, irritability or decline in sexual function, or if you are an athlete looking to sharpen your mental acuity, heighten your reflexes and improve your competitive edge.

How is SGB performed?

The procedure is done with the patient laying fully clothed on a comfortable table.  An ultrasound is used to visualize the target nerve bundle in the neck and to guide a needle into the correct position.  Once the correct needle position is confirmed, a small amount of local anesthetic is injected into the area and the needle is withdrawn.  After an injection is completed, the patient is observed for a time to ensure safe recovery.  The procedure takes approximately one hour and for many patients the relief is immediate.

What are the possible complications associated with SGB?

 There are several other nerve bundles in the same area as the one we are targeting with the procedure, and interruption of these often result in a droopy eyelid, blood shot eye, changes in the size of the pupil on one side, hoarseness of the voice, and mild difficulty swallowing.  The symptoms listed above are expected and are actually used to gauge the likely success of the procedure.  Uncommonly, some patients report some difficulty breathing.  All of these conditions are temporary and resolve within a few hours of the procedure. In a vanishingly small number of patients, the anesthetic can be placed in an unintended place such as a blood vessel. If this happens, the function of the brain or heart can be affected which may result in seizure, pathological heartbeat or cardiac arrest. As an extra precaution we use a medication that is more specific to the sensory nerve fibers over motor or the nerves affecting the heart. While theoretical, we hope that this will further improve the safety profile of this procedure. Bleeding deep in the neck that can form a swelling and close off your windpipe and result in death. If the lung is hit with the needle, a life-threatening condition called a tension pneumothorax can develop.

What are the possible benefits of SGB? (results vary)

 ✓   Restoration of emotional and mental clarity

 ✓   Improved sleep, reduced insomnia

 ✓   Improved symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Injury (PTSI)

 ✓   Improved memory and concentration

 ✓   Decreased irritability

 ✓   Restored autonomic function to the Nervous System

 ✓   Enhanced sexual function and intimacy

 ✓   Improved ability to interact socially

 ✓   Reduced “on edge” feeling or other forms of social anxiety

What should I do before the SGB procedure?

  • Schedule an appointment with us to learn about the risks and benefits of SGB

  • Complete a PTSD Checklist (PCL) with us.

  • Inform us of your medications and allergies

  • Continue to take regular medications

  • Prepare to have a driver after the procedure

Diagnostic Ultrasound

What is musculoskeletal ultrasound?

Musculoskeletal ultrasound refers to using ultrasound to diagnose problems with your muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, nerves, and bones.

During an ultrasound, a device called a transducer sends sound waves into your body. The waves bounce off tissues and return to the transducer, much like an echo. The transducer sends the information to a computer, which turns them into detailed, real-time images.

What conditions can musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnose?

The high-resolution images from an ultrasound allow The How Clinic practitioners to quickly diagnose nearly any musculoskeletal condition or injury, including sprains, strains, and tendon and ligament tears.

Diagnostic ultrasound is great for athletes who need a prompt treatment that targets the problem, promotes optimal healing, and gets them back into the game as quickly as possible.

Musculoskeletal ultrasound allows your provider to identify the earliest signs of arthritis and to diagnose other causes of joint pain and inflammation. The How Clinic also uses ultrasound to diagnose nerve entrapment or pinched nerves.

What symptoms indicate I may need a musculoskeletal ultrasound?

Most musculoskeletal injuries cause symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Limited movement
  • Inability to use the affected body part

An entrapped nerve causes pain, tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness, and eventually restricts movement.

What treatments use musculoskeletal ultrasound?

Ultrasound’s ability to produce real-time imaging makes it an essential tool for musculoskeletal injections. Using ultrasound guidance, your provider can see the needle as it’s inserted and ensure your treatment is injected at the specific site of injured tissues.

At The How Clinic, you may receive ultrasound-guided injections of orthobiologics such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The practitioners also use ultrasound to administer prolotherapy injections, a treatment that triggers healing, and to treat pinched nerves with nerve hydrodissection.

Microcurrent Treatment of Neuropathy symptoms (ECST)

Who is it for?

People with chronic pain, numbness, and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy

What is the method of treatment?

Electric Cell Signaling Treatment (ECST)

How does it work?

Using varied electrical impulses, it reduces pain and inflammation, stimulates blood circulation, and promotes nerve fiber regrowth and long-term healing.

Is it painful?

It is non-invasive and comfortable.

How long does it take?

Treatments are between 15-30 minutes. Treatment plans are best when done in a series 2-3 times per week.

Are there any contraindications?

Yes. Patients may not have pacemakers, current DVT/PE, seizures, medical devices: pain pumps,  or stimulators: bladder, spinal.

Can I use insurance?

Unfortunately, we no longer accept insurances.

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy results when nerves outside of the brain or spinal cord are damaged.

The primary function of a peripheral nerve is to carry information. Damage to the nerve often results in either bad information to be transmitted or no information to be transmitted up or downstream from the nerve. If the nerve normally carries information to make a muscle contract, damage to the nerve can result in muscle weakness. If the nerve normally carries sensory information the brain may receive information in the form of numbness, pins and needles sensation, burning, pain, heat, cold, pressure, tightness, any combination of these sensations, or other abnormal sensations. Symptoms can vary from day to day or even minute to minute. Some people have constant symptoms while others experience rapidly changing symptoms.

What is the difference between mononeuropathy and polyneuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy can involve one nerve (mononeuropathy) or involve a large group of nerves (polyneuropathy). When peripheral neuropathy involves one nerve it is often due to something physically affecting the nerve (i.e. trauma to the nerve, surgery near the nerve, or a pinching or squeezing of the nerve). Sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome are common examples of peripheral neuropathy resulting from a pinching or squeezing of a single nerve. Another name for neuropathy of a single nerve is mononeuropathy.

Conditions such as diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, overuse of alcohol, lead poisoning, or treatment with chemotherapy are common reasons why a person may develop neuropathy involving a large number of nerves at the same time. This type of neuropathy is often referred to as diffuse, peripheral neuropathy, or polyneuropathy.

Is it possible to have mononeuropathy and polyneuropathy at the same time?

Unfortunately, there are some people who have a combination of polyneuropathy and mononeuropathy. An example would be a person who has numbness or burning in their feet resulting from challenges controlling their diabetes who also has pain in their thumb and index finger due to a pinching occurring on one or two of the nerve roots in their neck.

What are the different types of neuropathy do you treat at The How Clinic?

Given the limited number of treatment options available to people with neuropathy, at The How Clinic, we proudly offer a number of different treatments for the management of peripheral neuropathy symptoms. Dr. John How is an expert at using an ultrasound to find and then treat nerves being pinched causing pain, numbness, or weakness in many areas of the body. **Consider: Dr. John How, in his many years of experience, uses an ultrasound to target and then treat the nerve(s) causing you pain, numbness, or weakness in many different areas of the body.

In addition, The How Clinic offers electrical cell signaling therapy (ECST) for those who suffer from diffuse peripheral neuropathy. The treatment modality uses pain-free targeted electrical impulses in a short treatment session spread over several weeks. Some patients with specific conditions find further benefits when injections are added to the treatment protocol.

Lastly, if the cause of a person’s peripheral neuropathy is heavy metal toxicity, we offer chelation therapy which is an effective way of clearing toxic metals from the body.

It is not uncommon for an individual to benefit from a combination of the above-mentioned treatments. There are very few, if any, clinics in the country offering the combined approach we employ at The How Clinic for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy symptoms.

What are the common causes of peripherhal neuropathy?

When peripheral neuropathy involves one nerve it is due to something physically affecting the nerve (i.e. trauma to the nerve, surgery near the nerve, or a pinching or squeezing of the nerve). Sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome are common examples of peripheral neuropathy resulting from a squeezing of a single nerve. Another name for neuropathy of a single nerve is mononeuropathy.

Conditions such as diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, overuse of alcohol, lead poisoning, or treatment with chemotherapy are some common reasons why a person may develop neuropathy involving a large number of nerves at the same time. This type of neuropathy is often referred to as diffuse, peripheral neuropathy, or polyneuropathy.

Have you had success treating neuropathy due to chemotherapy?

Approximately 10% of the patients we treat at The How Clinic for peripheral neuropathy symptoms are a result of chemotherapy exposure. In our clinical experience, the response rate is similar across all the different causes of neuropathy. Having said that, some of our greatest success stories are from patients who come to us with neuropathy due to chemotherapy.

Have you had success treating neuropathy due to diabetes?

Approximately 80% of the patients we treat at The How Clinic for peripheral neuropathy symptoms are due to diabetes. In our clinical experience, the response rate is similar across all the different causes of neuropathy. The majority of successful treatment outcomes are in patients whose neuropathy is due to diabetes.

Have you had success treating neuropathy due to vitamin B12 deficiency?

Of the patients who we treat at The How Clinic for the peripheral neuropathy symptoms, only a small number develop symptoms solely due to low levels of vitamin B12. More commonly, we see patients who have neuropathy primarily due to other conditions who also happen to have low levels of vitamin B12. In our clinical experience, the response rate is similar across all the different causes of neuropathy. We have had some very good results treating patients who have neuropathy associated with low vitamin B 12 levels.

How do you treat neuropathy due to lead or heavy metal poisoning?

If a person has neuropathy due to heavy metals toxicity including lead, it is important to not only treat the symptoms of the condition but also decrease the amount of the toxic substance in the body. A combined approach using Electronic Cell Signaling Therapy (ECST) and chelation (a process whereby lead is cleared from the body tissues) has the best chance of improving a person’s symptoms.

How long do treatment sessions take to complete?

Each hydrodissection procedure takes about an hour to complete. More complex cases may be more than an hour or will require multiple treatment sessions.

Each Electronic Cell Signaling Therapy (ECST) sessions takes approximately 40 minutes from check-in to check-out.

Are the treatment options available for neuropathy symptoms right for me?

It is difficult to predict who will benefit from the treatments we offer without actually trying the treatments. It can take between 8-12 treatments with ECST to determine if any given person is going to see benefit. We first set a baseline level of nerve function prior to treatment. Our standard protocol is to complete eight sessions of ECST before retesting and re-evaluation by a provider. This provides the time needed to evaluate whether you will benefit from ECST.

  • Dedicated to health promotion, minimally invasive therapies, and reducing healthcare costs
  • Individualized to engage patients and to support health-related lifestyle and behavioral change.

What will happen at my appointment with my ND?

A standard naturopathic clinical encounter begins with a comprehensive, systems-based assessment that is highly individualized to each patient and that addresses underlying mechanisms driving the disease process. Physicians address individual signs and symptoms, as well as the many determinants that influence health and illness.

Your ND will look to gain an understanding of multiple physiological systems and evaluate circumstances and conditions that create clinical dysfunction, including:

  • comprehensive personal history (medical, psychosocial, socioeconomic)
  • family history
  • genetics and epigenetics
  • environmental and occupational exposures
  • medication history (including medications, supplements, and botanicals)diet and lifestyle
  • psycho-emotional health (including trauma  history, stress resilience, coping style, and psychosocial support)
  • systems function (digestive, hepatobiliary, cardiovascular, renal, endocrine, musculoskeletal, immunological, neurological)
  • Lack of purpose (commitment to something meaningful provides a motivation for change)

What kind of testing is often recommended?

NDs may use a range of naturopathic, conventional, functional, and specialized diagnostic tests to perform this comprehensive evaluation, including but not limited to:

  • comprehensive physical exam, including skin, pain, cognitive, communication, posture, gait, activities of daily living, fitness, GYN/prostate, etc.
  • psycho-social-spiritual evaluations including diet, activity, sleep, spiritual practices
  • standard tests, such as blood analysis, urinalysis, stool tests, and diagnostic imaging
  • specialized tests, such as food sensitivity testing, biochemical analyses (e.g., methylation, oxidation, detoxification), metabolic pathways, comprehensive stool analysis, toxins and toxic load, advanced hormone testing, neurotransmitter testing, and advanced cardiometabolic testing.

What kind of treatment will my Naturopath recommend?

Guided by the naturopathic medical school curriculum and scope of practice and informed by the Therapeutic Order (TM) clinical methodology addresses treatment at several levels, based on the  individual’s needs:

  • Foundational support: healthy diet, movement and exercise, stress management, emotional and spiritual health, toxin exposure management, social and environmental determinants
  • Therapeutic diets and nutrition therapy
  • Botanical medicines and dietary supplements
  • Restorative therapies: hydrotherapy, manual medicine, homeopathy, etc.
  • Evidence-based, disease-targeted therapy: therapeutic use of nutrients, vitamins, herbs, and (where state regulations include it in the profession’s scope of practice) pharmaceuticals
  • Physical medicine modalities: massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, regenerative injection therapy (trigger point therapy, prolotherapy, platelet therapy, etc.
  • Mind-body techniques: mindfulness meditation, yoga, relaxation modalities, sensory-based therapies, behavioral modification, biofeedback, etc.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment to restore normal hormone levels. As their name suggests, bioidentical hormones are identical to, or have the same molecular structure, as your body’s natural hormones. As a result, they safely replace hormones when your levels decline. By comparison, synthetic hormones may be more likely to cause side effects.

When do I need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Women and men develop hormone deficiencies for many reasons. Hormone levels may drop if you:

  • Have an endocrine gland problem
  • Participate in intense athletic training
  • Develop an illness
  • Experience excessive stress
  • Develop a nutrient deficiency

However, age-related hormone loss is the primary reason most women and men need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Why do women need bioidentical hormone replacement after menopause?

Most women experience hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings before, during, and after menopause. While those problems eventually go away, the loss of estrogen leads to long-lasting problems such as:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Hair loss
  • Thinning skin
  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Painful intercourse

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may alleviate your menopause symptoms, treats problems like painful intercourse, and helps prevent conditions such as osteoporosis.

When might men need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Even healthy men experience the natural loss of testosterone as they get older. After the age of 30, testosterone levels drop by as much as 2% every year. As a result, men develop symptoms such as:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Decline in muscle strength
  • Thinning beard and body hair
  • Difficulty concentrating

Optimizing your testosterone levels bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps relieve many of these symptoms.

What should I know about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

At The How Clinic, patients with low hormone levels receive BioTE bioidentical hormones. BioTE comes in the form of pellets that are custom made to contain the precise dose you need to restore normal hormone levels.

Pellets are made by pressing your hormone dose into a cylinder that’s about as large as a grain of rice. Your provider implants the pellet under your skin, usually on your hip, where the pellet continuously releases small doses of the hormone. Each pellet keeps your hormones at optimal levels for three to six months.

If you need help with a hormone imbalance, call The How Clinic or book an appointment online to explore bioidentical hormone therapy.

Botox

Q: What is Botox for aesthetics?

A: Botox for aesthetics is a cosmetic treatment that uses a botulinum toxin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.

Q: How does Botox work?

A: Botox works by blocking signals from nerves to muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting. When the muscles can’t contract, wrinkles and fine lines smooth out, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Q: Is Botox safe?

A: Botox is generally considered safe when administered by a trained medical professional. However, like any medical treatment, it does come with some risks and potential side effects.

Q: What are the common side effects of Botox?

A: Common side effects of Botox include temporary bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site, as well as temporary weakness or drooping of nearby muscles.

Q: How long does Botox last?

A: The effects of Botox typically last 3-4 months, after which time the treatment will need to be repeated to maintain the desired results.

Q: Who is a good candidate for Botox?

A: Botox is generally recommended for adults who are in good health and have realistic expectations for the results of the treatment. It may not be appropriate for individuals with certain medical conditions or who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Q: Are there any alternatives to Botox for aesthetic purposes?

A: Yes, there are several alternative cosmetic treatments available for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, including dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. It is best to consult with a qualified medical professional to determine the best treatment for your individual needs.

O-Shot®
