Sports Medicine - Dr. Moalemi specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to participating in sports and/or exercise, specifically the rotation or deformation of joints or muscles caused by engaging in such physical activities.
Pain Management - There is currently no universally accepted classification of pain management techniques for back pain or neck pain. In general, pain management techniques can be grouped in terms of their invasiveness. Some, such as physical therapy, are not invasive at all and do not inherently involve the use of medications. Other pain management techniques, such as pain medications, are purely pharmacologic in nature, while still others involve invasive techniques such as injections. Some pain management techniques fall into two or more groups, such as injections, which invasively introduce medications into the body.
Acupuncture - Acupuncture is a treatment based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of TCM is the notion that a type of life-force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through channels in the body called "meridians." Each meridian connects to one specific organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. When too little or too much qi exists in a meridian or when qi stagnates or is blocked, illness results. Acupuncture treatment consists of inserting thin stainless-steel needles at various points on the body, known as "gateways," to unblock or rebalance the flow of qi.
Physical Rehabilitation - is used to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout life. This includes providing services in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors. Functional movement is a central element in what it means to be healthy.
Spinal Decompression - Spinal Decompression was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or deteriorated discs. Spinal Decompression not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles. Spinal Decompression uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica. Spinal Decompression has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery.
