Specialty Testing

You have the option to receive specialty tests not offered by commercial labs such as Quest or LabCorp.  These tests are often utilized by Functional Medicine based practices because they can provide important clues toward understanding the root cause of a health problem.  Our clinicians have the expertise to interpret tests which assess your microbiome, cellular nutrient levels, hormonal balance, food sensitivities, presence of SIBO and so forth.  Most of these tests are not covered by insurance.  

Quantum Medicine

Part of our approach considers how principles from biophysics affect biofields and human physiology.  At times you will learn/hear about different forms of energy and the impact of electrons, protons, electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields, visible light, mal-illumination, sound, frequency, vibration, and resonance on health.  We may suggest lifestyle changes, low tech, and higher tech therapies to either avoid harmful effects of energy or use it to improve your health.

Environmental Medicine

It is no secret that the world we live in today has substantially more pollutants in it from industrial chemical, pesticides, heavy metals, medication, and other hazards including mold. Eventually these pollutants accumulate in our bodies from our water, food and air and evidence continues to grow that this contributes to chronic disease. At Hopkins Medical Group we acknowledge this problem as one of the foundational issues of our time, and we assess your accumulated toxic burden, give advice about how to minimize ongoing exposure, and help implement strategies for removing these toxic substances from your body.

Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy (also known as Cold Laser Therapy) is a form of medicine that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue to accelerate healing.  Using a small hand-held device, the practitioner applies the light beam over the area of tissue requiring treatment.  Whereas high-power lasers are used to cut or destroy tissue, cold lasers are beginning to be more widely used in doctors’ offices to help relieve pain, reduce inflammation and stimulate cells to heal.  Our practitioners can discuss this treatment option with you during your office visit.

Autonomic Response Testing

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) regulates breathing, heart rate, digestion, immune function, sleep patterns, hormone regulation, detoxification and many other body functions.  A well-regulated ANS is a key driver to good health.  By testing muscles reflexes, clinicians can get a high-level “read” of how well your ANS is working and, more important, what may be driving any imbalances and what interventions  may help regulate it better. Our practitioners can discuss Autonomic Response Testing with you during your office visit.

Joint & Trigger Point Injections

Injections of medications such as cortisone or anesthetics directly into a joint or trigger point can provide immediate and very targeted relief from inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis or muscle “knots”. Dr Hopkins and our nurse practitioners are skilled at both evaluating when this intervention may benefit you and administering these procedures safely within the course of your office visit.
