It’s a good idea to wear loose, comfortable clothing. If you need to change clothes, we have patient gowns available.
At Holistic Primary Care, we use a unique combination of acupuncture, specialized massage techniques, therapeutic stretching and “active release techniques” as well as functional medicine to work with many painful conditions in the body involving muscles and joints. Dr. Donald M. Eisenman DAOM AP, NMT, is an acupuncture physician, functional medicine practitioner, as well as a neuromuscular therapist, who focuses on root cause and brings over 18 ten years of experience in treating soft tissue dysfunction (which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and connective tissue), and he explains that when there is pain people often feel the need to stretch the area that feels tight. However, the culprit may be a trigger point or myofascial restrictions (what most people would call a knot in the muscle). A trigger-point is a micro-tear which can happen in a shortened or lengthened muscle, and muscle adhesions in which case over-stretching may make the pain worse. By first assessing the body and determining root cause, we can bring back balance by addressing the muscles which have become shortened, tight or injured. This technique can bring relief where others have failed.
Keep in mind that most patients are coming in with a diagnosis from a western medical doctor. We may diagnose you differently and take it a step further by treating the root cause. In addition, we believe in treating you as an individual, because you are different than anyone on the planet! So we will look and listen carefully to your history and symptoms and how these express themselves uniquely in you. Painful conditions we treat include: Sports related injuries, acute and chronic pain but not limited to hHerniated disc, bulging disc, spinal stenosis, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, sciatic pain, numbness and tingling, trouble walking, hip pain, low back pain, muscle weakness, joint pain, frozen shoulder, neck pain, reduced range of motion, wrist pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, leg-length difference, headache, migraine, TMJ, jaw pain, post-operative dental pain, post-surgical pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic injury, chronic pain, other unexplained pain.
This depends on the details of your particular insurance plan. We require payment at the time of your visit. We are out-of-network providers for most insurance plans. You can check and see if your plan covers out-of-network acupuncture and/or physical therapy, and you can ask if you have met your deductible yet. We can give a receipt to turn in for reimbursement or help you file a claim for your treatments if you are covered.
Besides achieving specific treatment goals, such as becoming pain-free or having a baby, we will discuss milestones to look for along the way. Some of these might be increased range of motion, better quality sleep, increased energy, noticing you are less reactive to stressful events, improved digestion, regular menstrual cycles, and so on. Acupuncture treatments have a cumulative effect, so it is important to be consistent in both keeping your appointments and following your treatment plan to have the best results.
We only use Chinese herbs from top-quality professional sources. We do not recommend purchasing herbs from the internet or from Chinese grocery stores due to the possibility of receiving contaminated or counterfeit products.
Acupuncture needles are very different from the injection needles you may have experienced at the doctor’s office. They are designed with a comfortable treatment outcome in mind, and many of our patients feel so relaxed that they fall asleep during the treatment. You will have plenty of time to discuss with your practitioner any questions or concerns you may have so that you feel safe and comfortable.
Yes, we do have non-needle treatments which can stimulate acupuncture points for an effective treatment. Some of these include low-intensity laser light, electro-acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping.
We may be a bit biased, but we’re extremely confident in our ability and desire to care for our patients. According to them, we are one of the best holistic doctors in St Petersburg FL. You don’t have to take our word for it though. Check out our testimonials here.
You will be charged a cancellation fee of up to the full price of the visit if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment or if you are a “no-show.” We hope you understand the reason for this policy—it is because we are reserving a large block of time for your treatment.
