Think of Midwest Express Clinic as a pit stop?a streamlined, speedy health center that bypasses the long waits and high costs of a typical hospital. Patients can make quick in-and-out visits to the physicians of the clinic to investigate aches, repair minor cuts and injuries, or ensure long-term wellness with periodic checkups. Immunizations ward off disease, B12 injections can boost metabolism and weight loss, and x-rays can reveal skeletal structures or nickels swallowed during a quick dip in the Buckingham Fountain.
The multidisciplinary staff at Physical Medicine Associates, overseen by director of clinics and Doctor of Chiropractic Angela Silva, puts patients on the pathway to wellness with both allopathic and holistic therapies. The clinical team also supports athletes who seek to recover from injuries or increase performance. Most often, the team's treatment plans integrate physical therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling. For athletes who want to enhance their speed, the healthcare professionals recommend sessions on the Power Plate acceleration-training device, whose vibration action stimulates fast-twitch muscle fibers.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists?including physicians, nurses, and dietitians?works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
