Your first Functional Medicine assessment visit will be up to 90 minutes long. This will include time to review your health history and perform a nutrition focused physical exam utilizing Applied Kinesiology, Nutrition Response Testing, and Morphogenic Field Technique. Other non-invasive functional diagnostic tests will also be performed as needed including a musculoskeletal evaluation. Dr. Markus may give you beginning nutritional recommendations to implement on your first visit. She will also let you know if she recommends any further lab testing. A 60 minute follow-up appointment will be scheduled where you and the doctor will discuss the results of your initial Functional Medicine assessment. You will then receive a treatment plan that addresses the cause of the underlying health condition. This comprehensive treatment plan may include a specific diet protocol based on your needs, stress relief recommendations, sleep hygiene recommendations, and any nutritional, homeopathic or herbal supplements that are further recommended.
Manual therapy treatments target the muscles and joints in the body. Dr. Markus offers this treatment option to her patients who have already undergone a full Functional Medicine assessment with her. Manual therapy techniques include Myofascial Release, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation, Pin/Stretch, and Chiropractic adjusting. Her adjusting techniques are as follows: Diversified, Activator, SOT, Thompson, and Gonstead. Manual therapy can be a great option for someone needing pain relief but also for those seeking optimal performance.
