My approach to chronic pain, muscle pain, joint pain, and  weight loss

Chiropractic. The goal of this treatment is to significantly decrease symptoms such as pain, tightness, stiffness, soreness, aches, and improve athletic performance, mobility, and your ability to perform general activities.

Laser. Evidence for the effectiveness of laser is strong. Patients feel the relief especially for knee pain and TMJ pain

Shockwave therapy. This form of medical treatment is acknowledged as a means for enhancing scar tissue mobility and breaking up muscle tightness and muscle and joint adhesions. It is also helpful for chronic pain reduction and improved mobility. It helps osteoarthritic symptoms with improved functional mobility and quality of life.

Along with laser, Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS), shockwave therapy is effective for pain control of osteoarthritis of the knee, neck pain, low back pain, and increasing mobility.

Deep Muscle Stimulator Massage. Followed by hands on therapy, DMS is the most commonly utilized treatment in my office. Patients feel better after this type of massage than receiving a regular hand massage. They have significant improvements in pain, stiffness, and physical function.

Dietary supplements. I use a variety of products from Metagenics, Xymogen, Designs for Heath, and Standard Process for joint pain, arthritis, inflammation, and weight loss.

Widening the integrative approach to treatment

There is emerging evidence that integrating multiple conventional and alternative therapies such as chiropractic, exercise, laser, shockwave, DMS, lymph therapy provide the best results for patients.

If you are a person who still has pain and diminished mobility who has already explored other therapies and doctors but have been disappointed, I would like the opportunity for you and I to meet. I continuously evaluate the increasing body of evidence in support of new therapies, and I am confident in offering my patients a wider range of choices than standard chiropractic care.

Chronic Pain

DMS, Shockwave therapy, Laser therapy has been found in clinical experience to help common repetitive motion injuries (RMI’s) that cause chronic pain.

Musculoskeletal pain and disorders are commonly caused by myofascial shortening. Bilateral myofascial shortening results in compressive forces whereas unilateral myofascial shortening can cause torqueing forces. Either way DMS, shockwave therapy, chiropractic, and laser therapy is very effective in reducing compressive forces and torqueing forces related to pain production. No other office in Los Angeles has three types of laser machines, two shockwave machines and the DMS.

Chronic Pain

Dr. Jeffrey Tucker treats chronic pain patients using the most modern technology such as Piezo-electric shockwave. Shockwave therapy has the following effects:

1. Eliminate pain

2. Facilitate healing

3. Improve local microcirculation leading to improved tissue metabolism

4. Increase production of collagen

5. Reduce local muscle tension

6. Help dissolve calcific fibroblasts

7. Stimulate the “washing away” of Substance-P (a pain producing chemical)

Piezo-electric shockwave therapy (Also known as Radial Pulse Wave Therapy)

Foot Pain & Hip Pain Treatments

Piezo-electric shockwave therapy (Also known as Radial Pulse Wave Therapy) is an extremely effective and non-invasive solution to foot and hip pain. It delivers a series of high-energy percussions to the area being treated. These are NOT electric shocks, but physical/mechanical pulses that will travel through the tissue being treated.

These percussion impulses cause scar tissue to break down and stimulate healing.
