Every American knows the complexities of the Medical system in the U.S., but after all the dust settles, the conversation must be about you, the Person. You are what we care about at USA Holistics.
It may easily begin for you as a "Business as Usual" patient, or you may choose to jump right into our Network through one of our Membership Plans. Business as Usual means that you already have your MD or DO in place. They have provided you with a diagnosis, and you are seeking ancillary medical and/or therapy treatment. It may also mean, that you seek a second opinion to confirm your original diagnosis. Lastly, it means that you have insurance and that your MD or DO is covered under your current insurance plan.
Now, here is where USA Holistics is improving the whole ball of wax for you as a Patient, in the U.S...
What if you have limited insurance? Or none at all? What if you are not happy with your current Doctor? What if you prefer to not take Pills, but prefer Traditional Chinese medicine? What if you need more than one Therapy Treatment on the Same Day? These, and many other situations and conditions often arise during the course of a Patient's treatment plan. Which, in turn, means stress and paperwork and a whole lot of mental space dedicated to the "Business of Medicine", all while you are a sick or injured person having to contend with your regular life plus your disorder. UGH!
USA Holistics was created to help make this and you better. Bring us your Diagnosis, Radiological Scans and Reports! We will do everything possible to Integrate it all with any or all of our Holistic Treatment Plans. This may go a long way toward your more rapid and complete recovery.

Osteopathy is a branch of medical practice that emphasizes the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the bones, joints, and muscles.
Beyond the physical feelings of relief brought on by joint manipulation, we consider the internal organ health benefits of Osteopathy to be vital. And of course, it directly interconnects with all of our Integrated Medical modalities.
General Benefits of Osteopathy
How Often Do I Need to See an Osteopath?
We have a philosophy that includes seeing a Osteopath AS NEEDED for pain management, then ideally, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly for the rest of your life. The concept is; we brush our teeth twice daily; we need Vertebral realignment regularly for ideal health. Obviously, not everyone can actually see a Osteopath every week, but if you can make the time, you should expect to see your health dramatically improve.
Neurology is Everything in the Human Body! One could liken it to a tree with a set of deep thick roots, a trunk, and large limbs with many smaller branches. It Begins with the Brain (the Root) and Spinal Cord (the Trunk). Then, it extends out into large long nerves which extend into our arms and legs going all the way to the very tips of our fingers and toes. In addition, these nerve branches extend into all of our Internal Organs, thus creating a huge network of nerves (like the Branches of a tree).
The Radiologist's words are extremely valuable in providing effective treatment. We don't always need a "Scan", but when we do, we sure love knowing that we can rely on Modern Technology and well-educated Radiologists, to provide us with the highest quality Imaging and Reports for a Patient's best possible acute and/or chronic care. At NYHolistics, we are not Radiologists. However, it might be the case where our Osteopath writes a prescription for Radiology. Or, our Therapists refer you back to your MD for one. We prefer to use the imaging and reports to Your advantage.
X-Rays and CT Scans
We use them. Today's technology has greatly reduced some of the dangers of X-Ray exposure, as in CT Scans. However, it does still preset certain risks. We try to limit the exposure any patient has to X-Rays, but we do utilize them whenever necessary.
Main reasons to use CT Scans include:
In some ways, these two tests are similar to one another. They both show cross-sectional pictures of the body, but they accomplish this with different techniques. CT (computerized tomography) uses multiple x-rays, taken at different angles, to produce the cross-sectional imaging. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) uses magnetic fields and radio frequencies. Because of the differences in techniques, the tests show the same parts of the body in different ways and are selected based upon the possible diagnosis.
Main reasons to use MRI include:
An orthopedic surgeon is a physician (who has a medical degree D.O. or M.D) who is trained in diagnosis , treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of disorders, injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system of the body. ... The musculoskeletal system includes bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and tendons.
When Do I Need and Orthopedist?
Anytime that that there is a suspected traumatic or repetitive motion injury to a bone, joint, tendon or nerve an orthopedic doctor is your best choice for treatment. If the patient is experiencing chronic joint or bone pain, diagnosed with a rheumatic disease, or have arthritis an orthopedic specialist is an important part of treatment.
