We specialize in providing nonsurgical and medication-free treatments to patients looking for better and more efficient solutions. Each of our practitioners takes a whole-body approach to health. We have the ability to give the exact treatment each patient needs to alleviate and prevent the pain they are experiencing. Our doctors don’t just treat symptoms; they focus on the source of the problem for long-term pain relief. Our top services are neuropathy care and regenerative medicine. People who have diabetes, have arthritis, are recovering from injuries, or suffer from chronic pain can benefit immensely from these services. Our researched-backed treatments include regenerative medicine and stem cells, electric

therapy, light therapy, pulse wave therapy and chiropractic adjustments.

Peripheral neuropathy is something we treat on a regular basis.This condition is caused when the nerves in a person’s feet, hands, legs and arms begin to send incorrect signals to the brain.These “misfires” result in symptoms of burning, numbness, tingling and “electric shocks.”There are many types of neuropathy, and Superior Health Centers’ treatments focus solely on peripheral neuropathy or “nerve damage.”The diagnosis of this condition can be difficult, as many of the symptoms are caused by underlying diseases. The health professionals practicing at Superior Health Centers know a number of treatments for neuropathy and arthritis.The goal is to return feeling to the portion of the body that is experiencing numbness, burning, or tingling and to relieve the joint pain associated with arthritis. If you know anyone suffering from pain, we encourage you to call our offices today to speak to one of our doctors. Our goal is to save as many people as possible from the crippling effects of peripheral neuropathy and the conditions associated with it. Our mission is to transform lives, one patient at a time.



PATIENT STORY OF THE MONTH! Eric’s Escape From Pain Medication We want to dedicate this portion of our newsletter to our amazing patients. Our wish is to encourage our patients to share their stories and reach out to people living with similar struggles. No one has to endure life with chronic pain, as demonstrated through our patients’ achievements. Eric C. suffered from severe chronic pain in both knees before coming to our office to receive injections. His pain had reached such a point that every step was excruciating. “Even when I wasn’t walking, they would hurt,” Eric shares. “I was limping all the time.”To fight the pain, he relied on medication. “I used to take pain pills —Tylenol, oh man, you can name it — every day like candy and food,” he says. But he had little results. The biggest frustration was how the pain impacted his life. “Not working and doing the things that I used to do was the biggest problem.You get older and start to lose cartilage in your knees, but I had to continue to work and survive,” he says.The pain Eric was experiencing prevented him from doing that and tied him to the medication he was taking That changed once he received a letter addressed to his father. “I saw some mail come in for him,” he explains. “It was something about arthritis pain, and I opened it up and called the number inside. I asked if I could take advantage of this, and Superior Health Centers said,‘Yeah, come on down.’And that’s when I found out about these kinds of treatments.” Within six weeks after his injections, Eric was back on his feet with absolutely no pain. “The treatment has helped me dramatically. I can walk normally, bend down, play with my grandkids, play with my dogs, and run with no pain. I can work again. I don’t have to fight to get back up when I drop something. I can bend down and pick it up quickly without any pain. I’m glad I opened that letter and found Superior Health Centers.” Stories such as Eric’s are what we aim for at Superior Health Centers. There are better treatments that people can receive without having to rely on drugs.We want everyone who experiences chronic pain to return to their daily lives completely pain-free.

CHRONIC ANGER, YOUR HEART, AND YOUR HEALTH How This Emotion Is Doing You Harm Anger is a common emotion. It’s natural, and it’s a part of how you respond to certain circumstances in your environment. It’s how you express extreme displeasure. However, new research suggests chronic anger can be detrimental to your health. Essentially, it comes down to this: If you are stressed, tense, easily irritable, angry, and “snippy” all the time, you may be doing serious harm to your well-being. Studies have already shown a link between anger and the heart. People who showed signs of feeling anger on a regular basis experienced higher rates of heart disease.The first studies on the impact of anger came out in the 1950s and have since been confirmed: Chronic anger physically harms the heart. Why?When you get angry or upset, your brain triggers the release of specific hormones, including cortisol and norepinephrine.These hormones are responsible for triggering the “fight or flight” response. When these hormones enter the bloodstream, your heart rate increases and arteries constrict.This helps to more effectively pump blood to the arms and legs for a fight or a flight. The problem is that when a person is constantly angry or upset, these hormones course through the body more frequently, stressing the arteries and internal organs. As a person ages, this stress can become more damaging. One study that appeared in the Psychology and Aging Journal looked into this phenomenon. Researchers found that there is a link between frequently experiencing anger and increased inflammation and chronic illness for people ages 80 and older.This equated to more instances of heart disease and dementia. The study also looked at other emotions, including sadness, which has also been linked to heart disease and other inflammatory diseases.Through a number of tests involving 200 participants ages 59–93, the researchers concluded anger was far more detrimental to a person’s health than sadness. Ultimately, if you regularly experience rage and frustration, properly dealing with your anger is one of the best things you can do for your health. Every person’s situation is different, and it comes down to getting to the bottom of what makes you angry so you can work through it, whether you work through it alone or with a mental health professional. Take the steps to prioritize your mental and physical health, and your efforts will pay off tenfold in the long run.

NFL Lowers Concussion Rates in 2018

The NFL’s Newest Rule Changes to Decrease Concussions A HEAD ABOVE Despite the backlash, offseason reports may suggest that these rules have influenced concussion rates.The NFL reported a 24% decline in the number of concussions between the 2017 and 2018 seasons, lowering the total from 281 in 2017 to 214 in 2018 when combined with preseason play. In the regular season alone, the number of reported concussions was 135 compared to 190 from the year prior. Still, NFL and medical officials point to 2018’s decrease in concussions as a positive sign that league initiatives are working. Officials say the new rules helped push the numbers down, and the use of more sideline concussion protocol testing and increased advanced helmet technology aided in this boost.The NFL reported that 74% of its players were now wearing its latest protective headgear, a 33% increase from 2017.According to USAToday, the NFL’s chief medical officer, Dr.Allen Sills, also indicated that medical teams across the league performed more sideline concussion tests than any year prior and saw a 75% decrease in diagnosing.The league is considering testing mouthguard technology that would give medical teams more information for diagnosing concussions. As we prepare for another season of football, there’s no telling what 2019’s numbers will show about the NFL’s latest safety protocols, but if 2018 was any indication, they just might be headed in the right direction. However, it’s worth noting that 2017 saw high recorded rates of concussions. Figures going as far back as 2012 indicate that 2017 was one of the most concussed years in recent football history.

Prior to the 2018 National Football League (NFL) season, the league administration introduced two rules aimed at preventing concussions: Players are no longer allowed to “wedge” block — players running shoulder-to-shoulder into another player — during kick-offs, and they can’t lower their helmets when they tackle. Fans and players complained about the “soft” stance the NFL took on the gritty play football was built on. Most notably, former Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was subjected to a game-costing “roughing the passer” penalty for tackling in a way that would have been allowed in years prior.The NFL reported that it would be using Matthews’ hit as a teaching tape.
