Use of Chiropractic adjustments


The first time I visit, I told the doctor the temporal arthritis, he immediately noticed that my prescription glasses were cutting into my temples and could be causing additional stress on my temporal arteries. I had the glasses refitted and the pain in my temples was gone. I had been taking pain medications, steroids, and had been to several chiropractors before but had not obtained results I wanted.

After seeing Dr. Gallo for 1-2 weeks of treatment, I could turn my head while driving to look out my mirrors without neck pain! I continued to get treatment from Dr. Gallo on and off for fibromyalgia and back pain. In July of 2005 I was diagnosed with lung cancer. I stopped treatment with Dr. Gallo during this period. But the day after my surgery I was lying in bed in such pain, I wished Dr. Gallo could help me. Within a day of my surgery, he called me to see how I was doing. I told him that I felt like I was cut open and stretched out like a piece of cattle. My right arm was in so much pain that I couldn’t raise it higher than my shoulder. I went to a neurologist, who suggested that there might be nerve damage from the surgery and told me to see an orthopedic surgeon.

When I did and the surgeon ran some tests, he recommended and MRI and probably surgery. After everything I’d been through–I said No way. I had had enough. In December of 2005, I called Dr. Gallo. He did and examination on my shoulder and although he thought I might have nerve damage from the surgery, he didn’t think I needed more. He began treating me using Chiropractic adjustments, active release muscle work, and physical therapy. Within a short time, I had full range of motion in my right arm and regained all muscle strength without drugs or additional surgery. Now I can get back to my life!

I am a vice president for a consulting firm. My job is very stressful and i get a crick and pain in my neck. I have had headaches for several years, and my MD prescribed Celexa for them. Since my second child was born, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and have been taking the drugs Dyazide and Atenolol for about four years. The headache medication only gives me temporary relief. 

Massage and Ben-Gay helps to reduce my neck pain but only for a short time. I don’t know if the blood pressure medication is even working! I began receiving chiropractic adjustments and muscle release therapy from Dr. Gallo in March of 2004 and had regular treatments for about six months. After the first month, my headaches were just about gone and I had stopped taking the Celexa a few weeks later. After a few months, I stopped taking the Diazide and the Atenolol. I have not had a headache in several months and have been free from neck pain. More importantly, I no longer need to take pharmaceutical drugs that could have potentially harmful side effects. I plan to continue regular treatments and I recommend Dr. Gallo to all my friends.

    Liposuction surgical procedure


      Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to extract excess fat from specific areas of the body in order to provide a slimmer, more pleasing shape. Commonly treated areas of the body include the chin, cheeks neck, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Liposuction is most effective on physically healthy men and women who are of normal body weight but have exercise-resistant areas of fat.

      Liposuction may be performed with a variety of anesthesia, including an epidural, local anesthesia or general anesthesia. During a traditional liposuction procedure, small incisions are made in the skin and then a narrow tube known as a cannula is inserted through the incisions and manipulated to disrupt the fat cells before suctioning them out. The incisions are then closed. Traditional liposuction typically takes one to two hours to perform.

      There are several newer techniques in liposuction, including the tumescent technique and ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL). With the tumescent technique, the fat cells are first infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic before being suctioned out with traditional liposuction techniques. With UAL, an ultrasound probe is inserted beneath the skin to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out. Both the tumescent technique and UAL are associated with decreased post-operative bruising and swelling, though surgical times tend to be longer.

      After liposuction, bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness and a burning sensation may occur. It can take anywhere from one to six months before patients fully recover from the swelling and bruising. Patients are typically able to return to work within one to two weeks, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for two to four weeks.

      The potential complications that may occur with liposuction include adverse anesthesia reaction, asymmetry, bagginess or rippling of the skin, excessive fluid loss, fluid retention, infection, pigmentation changes, and skin injury. There is the additional risk of thermal burn injury with UAL. The results of liposuction can be long-lasting with a sensible diet and exercise.

      Radiesse is an injectable filler made from synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite that may be used to improve the appearance of facial lines and to enhance the lips. Radiesse is commonly used to treat deeper wrinkles including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Good candidates for Radiesse treatment include men and women who are physically healthy, realistic in their expectations and looking to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles or add fullness to the lips.

      Radiesse injections are typically performed in a surgeon’s office-based facility and may take anywhere from fifteen minutes to forty minutes to complete. A local or topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area and then the Radiesse is injected beneath the skin using a very fine needle.

      Patients may experience some mild swelling, redness or discomfort for the first few days after treatment. Nevertheless, recovery is minimal and patients are typically able to return to work and other activities right away. Radiesse produces an initial plumping of the skin during the first three months after treatment along with additional correction for up to twelve to eighteen months afterward as new tissue regenerates.

      There are few risks associated with Radiesse, though side effect of swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration or tenderness may occur. When used in the lips, there is a small risk of lumpiness. While the duration of results will vary, patients can generally expect Radiesse results to last twelve to eighteen months or longer.

        Rhinoplasty: Your Next Step

        A consultation and a full cosmetic surgery evaluation should be your next step to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for rhinoplasty or another cosmetic plastic surgery procedure. Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon in Westchester County to determine if you are a candidate, and if so, the type of nose reshaping surgery that would best suit your requirements.

        In general, most people return to their normal activities in 3-7 days, even though it may take over six months for the final result to be apparent. Because each patient’s rhinoplasty procedure will be individualized, your experience recovering from surgery may vary. For most people, however, recovery follows a similar course

        During the procedure the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision either inside the nostrils or through the columella, the external strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. The skin is then separated away from the framework of the nose itself so the doctor can access the underlying cartilage. For the nose to be reshaped,  soft flexible cartilage the bone that is found in the nose is manipulated for a proper position and shape of the nose. Your desired results can be shown on the way this is removed in changing the angle of patient’s nose. During the procedure, most frequently to remove a hump from the bridge of the nose. When nose is sculpted with its shape, skin will then resituated and nose will be splinted in protecting it.

        Rhinoplasty, as with all other surgeries, is not risk-free. Standard bruising and swelling is what patients must be aware of and its potential side-effects may result from the procedure. Patients can report bursting of the small blood vessels from the skin and hematomas and collect blood that is pooled under the skin.

        Every surgical procedure carries risks such as infection, bleeding, hematoma (a collection of blood under the skin that must be removed) and reaction to anesthesia. Complications specific to rhinoplasty are uncommon.



        Ledig butikslokal och kontor att hyra


          Om man drömmer om att få äga sin egen butik kan det vara god tid att ta tjuren vid hornen och uppfylla denne dröm. Man kan dock inte enbart kasta sig ut i arbetslivet utan att ha en plan. Förutom de självklara frågorna kring vad man har att erbjuda kunden och vad ens varor – alternativt tjänster – kommer att vara behöver man dessutom tänka över den lokal där man kommer att arbeta. Bör man hyra en lokal eller äga den själv? Denne frågan kommer ofta upp när man talar om att börja bedriva sitt företag, men det finns inte alltid några rätta svar. Enbart fördelar och nackdelar som måste vägas mot varandra.


          Bör man verkligen hyra en butikslokal?

          Först av allt kan vi börja med att gå igenom fördelarna av att köpa en butikslokal. Dessa är olyckligtvis nog inte många, men de finns ändå där. Om man själv äger en butik har man mycket mer frihet kring vad man kan göra med lokalen och hur man kan inreda den. Om man exempelvis vill slå ner väggar eller bygga om kan man enkelt genomföra detta utan att behöva fråga om lov. Om man däremot hyr lokalen måste man se till så att den bevaras i ett visst skick och inte skadas på något vis.

          Utöver denne fördel finns det dock inte många andra att finna. Om man istället hyr en lokal får man nämligen frihet på ett lite annorlunda vis- friheten att flytta från kontor till kontor eller butik till butik. När man har hyrt en lokal skriver man självfallet på ett kontrakt, men detta kontrakt är inte så bindande som man kanske skulle tro. Tvärtom gäller det vanligtvis enbart i en månad innan man måste förnya det om man inte har kommit överens om någonting helt annat med den som hyr ut lokalen. Tack vare detta är det enkelt att byta till en annan lokal om man plötsligt skulle märka att den som man befinner sig i inte når upp till de förväntningar som man tidigare hade.


          All-inclusive, i alla fall till viss del

          När man hyr lokalen och skriver på kontraktet bör man vara medveten om att man tvingas betala en viss kostnad varje månad, en summa pengar som täcker vissa ting och tjänster. Vad kontraktet täcker varierar från lokal till lokal, men vanligtvis handlar det om nästan allt som behövs i ett kontor. Man får först av allt alla de möbler som står inne på kontoret. Det kan vara alltifrån soffor och fåtöljer till stolar och bord. Utöver dessa möbler får man tillgång till en skrivare, en kopiator och andra maskiner som behövs på kontoret. Sedan kan man även räkna med försäkringar, reception, hjälp med städningen, telefoni, internetuppkoppling och mycket annat. Som ni ser finns det alltså mycket som ingår i den totala kostnaden varje månad. Tack vare detta slipper man själv att teckna abonnemanget och att beställa tjänsterna. Man kan istället lägga krut på alla de andra nödvändiga delarna av att bedriva ett företag. Just därför är det så många som älskar idén av att hyra en lokal istället för att köpa den.

          Om man vill hyra en butikslokal, kontorslokal, lagerlokal eller verkstad kan man alltid ta ett besök hos De är till fantastisk hjälp om man vill hitta en lokal som passar just den verksamhet som man själv bedriver. Genom en enkel sökning har man hela Sveriges utbud framför sig och kan utan problem hyra en lokal som följer de behov och krav som man har.
