A question I often get asked by patients is what the difference is between Advanced Rehab and Medical and 45 Urgent Care, and why sometimes they see both.
45 Urgent Care is staffed by a team of medical providers, either a Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner, supervised by a Medical Doctor. We are assisted by licensed medical assistants. We provide a multitude of typical urgent care services such as acute illness/injury care, work compensation exams and treatment, women’s health, DOT physicals, sports injuries, allergy management, etc. We also offer BioTE hormone replacement therapy, regenerative medicine (PRP, stem cell therapy), and are skilled in treatment with trigger point therapy and joint injections.
What makes this clinic unique is our partnership with Advanced Rehab and Medical. AR&M is staffed by Chiropractic Physicians, assisted by Chiropractic Therapy Assistants. Their training offers a different perspective and set of therapeutic tools that all patients can benefit from.
When a patient comes to our clinic, they have an opportunity to participate in what is called integrative medicine. This means that we take the training and philosophy of different approaches to healthcare to deliver effective, customized therapy to each patient. Collaboration means you have a team of highly trained professionals working with you to determine the best course of treatment and preventative care. Each provider has a unique background and perspective, which allows us to learn from each other every day. That sharing of knowledge is what makes us more able providers.
Integrative medicine takes into account the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. At 45 Urgent Care and AR&M, we emphasize the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient. We practiced evidence-based medicine and incorporate the latest treatment plans and modalities to better serve you.
So even if you only come into 45 Urgent Care for the occasional cold, know that we are all here to work with you to promote wellness, prevent illness/injury, and improve your quality of life. I encourage you to make an appointment with Advanced Rehab and Medical today and see how we can help you live a better life.
