Nutritional Supplements

If you will help us by getting involved with your recovery, you’ll not only speed things up, but save time, money, and effort because we won’t need to see you as often.

All products are not created equally. We use only the most researched items we can find. There are many cheaper versions of these products that are synthetic or made in a way that limits their bio-availability.  

The programs below are designed for different reasons; short and long – term. Some people question the needs for supplements so here’s an interesting article about research and multi-vitamins.  

Always check with your primary care doctor for any adverse interactions with medications you may be taking. 

Acute Pain

  • OsteoVantiv: Designed to comfort sore joints and promote joint flexibility in healthy people following exercise. It features a clinically effective dose of UC-II®, which has been shown in research to support joint health.
  • EC Matrixx: Designed to support the health of connective tissue by positively influencing the extracellular matrix, a key component of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
  • Acute Phase: Acute Phase is designed to provide highly targeted nutritional support for patients who may benefit from muscle tissue support and minor pain relief.

Chronic Pain

  • Angstrom Magnesium: Taken before or with drink; 1 oz. daily (orally) while symptomatic to help chronic and acute conditions heal faster. Most people are deficient in magnesium; this liquid form is most readily available in the body, and aids in calcium absorption. While asymptomatic take 1/2oz. daily.  Please read the ebook: Change Your Life With Magnesium, written by Carolyn Dean.
  • Phenocane: A natural anti-inflammatory: Take 3-4 pills to relieve pain and inflammation- the most common cause of pain. This vegetarian capsule is a COX2 inhibitor that relieves pain and eliminates inflammation without inhibiting COX1 development.

Take 3-5 tablets every 3 hours for an acute injury or post 3 hour endurance event.
