Clinique Valens
I normally don't write reviews but I just had the most amazing experience at Clinique Valens. I began seeing a therapist, Rodrigo Ferrer a month ago. for the last 3 years I've suffered from gastritis, IBS and IBD and even gave up seeing the gastro doctor and i was suffering from major anxiety. With physical therapy, relaxation techniques, my body has reacted. I've switched out two prescription drugs for natural substances from the vitamin shops. He discovered my sugar was running low. I wake up hungry, I know how to breathe away anxiety, I don't even need the Symbicort I was taking . I totally recommend this place.

This small clinic is the best; very professional! Rodrigo, my therapist is always with a great smile, attitude and very positive energy! I started going for chronic neck and back pain. I do not know exactly what techniques he used in each session but every time I walked out of the office I was feeling like I was walking on clouds. I can honestly say my overall energy levels increased and pain/discomfort decreased significantly and permanently with only two sessions.I highly recommend them!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
