If only there was a single pill that could resolve your chronic pain. The reality, however, is that the causes of chronic pain are multidimensional, and effective treatment requires a multidimensional approach.

At the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine we offer patients a unique diagnostic protocol — taking the time to talk with patients to understand their symptoms, their medical history, which treatments have and haven’t worked in the past, and reviewing patients’ musculoskeletal, physiological and even emotional systems.

Once accurately diagnosed, we find that patients with chronic illness make the quickest and the most complete recoveries when they follow a comprehensive treatment strategy that addresses their unique medical needs. By combining treatment modalities in a way that specifically targets an individual’s medical issues, our patients are able to achieve a more rapid, complete, and permanent resolution of their chronic illness — often avoiding surgery, using far less medication and experiencing fewer side effects than with conventional medicine.

At the Kaplan Center we offer strategic pain management — a comprehensive treatment approach that may incorporate one or more of the modalities listed below.

There are a variety of treatments available to patients suffering from biotoxicity or neurotoxicity disorder, but there is certainly no “one-size-fits-all” remedy. Your treatment plan will be individually tailored after consideration of your overall medical history, your current symptoms, your genetic makeup, your history of exposure to biotoxins and your lifestyle. The essential aspect of treatment is the detoxification regime, a 2-step process whereby the biotoxins are first drawn out of whatever tissue in the body is storing them, and then toxins are bound at the molecular level so they can be eliminated from the body via urination.
