Injured Hand Consultation

If you’re recovering from an illness or surgery, your body has specific rehabilitation needs. We can help.

As a holistic care provider, Dr. Fulmes and the team at Health Institute in the New York metropolitan region have a special interest in using a variety of modalities at their disposal to treat you. This includes medical or surgical colon or rectal procedures, as well as integrative medicine and a variety of alternative therapies.

Two of our most popular rehabilitation services include whole body vibration and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.

Whole Body Vibration (WBV)

A type of passive exercise, whole body vibration involves repeatedly standing on a vibrating platform for a period of time. While you stand on the platform, your body begins to adapt to these bursts of rapid, frequent movements. You essentially “train” your muscles and nerves to resist these vibrations, which can improve your strength and balance.

Another surprising effect of whole body vibration is its impact on your metabolic health. If you are suffering from fecal or urinary incontinence, you have special rehabilitation needs and Dr. Fulmes may use WBV, PEMF therapy, and/or other rehabilitation techniques to treat you.

The health benefits of WBV therapy include:

Increased metabolism

Improved circulation

Reduced pain and inflammation

Reduced stress levels

Stimulation of collagen production

Patients dealing with obesity, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and more could benefit from whole body vibration.

WBV is also especially valuable for postpartum women (beginning 1-3 months after giving birth) and adults with back problems. Dr. Fulmes has developed a unique methodology of using WBV and specific exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles for these two groups of patients. Dr. Fulmes’ concept can help you improve muscle strength and balance, and improve fecal or urinary incontinence using a Galileo machine.

The benefits of PEMF therapy include:

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy

This painless, noninvasive, and safe alternative therapy helps your body repair itself.

Special hand-held devices are used to deliver electromagnetic waves at precise, low frequencies and in rapid, brief bursts to an area of your body. These pulses recharge your body, restoring the naturally occurring magnetic charge within cells, allowing them to properly function.
