Computed / Digital X-Rays
State of the art digitized radiographs
Digital radiology may represent the greatest technological advance in medical imaging over the last decade. The use of photographic films for X-ray imaging will be obsolete in a few years. An appropriate analogy that is easy to understand is the replacement of typical film cameras with digital cameras. Images can be taken, immediately examined, deleted, corrected, and subsequently sent to a network of computers.
The benefits from digital radiology are enormous. This facility has become filmless. The referring physicians at our Center can view the requested image on a desktop personal computer, often with the report, just minutes after the examination is performed. The images are no longer held in a single location; they can be seen simultaneously by physicians who are miles apart. In addition, the patient can have all his or her X-rays on a compact disk to take to another physician or hospital.

High Power Laser Therapy
The SDARC Wellness Center is pleased to announce that we are offering Class IV laser therapy for our patients. If you have been suffering from chronic pain, want to speed your post-op healing process, or if you are looking for an alternative to surgery, then visit San Diego’s FIRST treatment facility with the amazing Class IV laser.
What is High Power laser therapy?
Laser therapy utilizes a Class IV therapeutic laser that safely increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area, actually helping the affected area return to its normal, healthy, relaxed state. The laser stimulates the immune system, accelerates cellular healing and growth and creates an optimal healing environment. The patient will benefit from this healing environment by a reduction in inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
What conditions can benefit from laser therapy?
We have helped patients with a variety of conditions reclaim their mobility, greatly lessen or eliminate pain, and in some cases, treat patients for whom all other treatments had failed.
Laser therapy is very effective for the treatment of the following conditions:
  • Sprains, strains, soft tissue injuries
  • Sports Injuries, tennis elbow and more
  • Bursitis and other inflammatory conditions
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Chronic joint pain – especially for those patients who are not a candidate for joint replacement or choose not to have joint replacement
  • Post-surgical pain
Major benefits of Laser therapy treatment:

Interferential Electro Therapy
It is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing. Tiny amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain.
Interferential Electro-Therapy is most often used for pain relief and to aid in reducing the swelling of soft tissues. Ligament sprains, muscle strains and spasms often respond to this treatment, helping to reduce atrophy and increase blood circulation.

Nutritional Counseling
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Our Doctors can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs as well as specific protocols for various conditions such as: diabetes, MS, allergies, cardiovascular as well as providing a specific detoxification program. We use only professional grade, whole foods supplementation from the most respected companies available.

Communication with the Physician
We work closely with physicians in the specialty areas of orthopedics, pain management, family practice, internal medicine, neurology, podiatry, dentistry, acupuncture and chiropractic medicine. To assure maximum continuity of care, timely and comprehensive written reports of the patients’ progress are provided to the physician each time the patient returns to the physician’s office and upon completion of treatment.
