Treating Spinal Stenosis
Without Surgery

Age can be a difficult thing for your body to deal with. A lot of us have to put up with spinal stenosis, which is when the holes in our vertebrae (called the spinal canal) narrow, putting pressure on our spinal nerves. This condition is very common, and can cause pain and numbness to radiate down our legs.

Spinal stenosis is actually the most significant cause of spinal surgery in patients older than 65, and is often paired with a long recovery time. There can be a lot of swelling around the nerves causing your symptoms, which many clinics and doctors will try to combat with steroid injections, medications, and (in the worst cases) surgery.

We understand how important it is to get back to doing your favorite activities without pain, which is why surgery and its long recovery time plus potential side effects is not something we want for our patients.

Responsible Pain Management For Spinal Stenosis

The spine is very complex, so we dedicate ourselves to finding out exactly how your spinal stenosis is affecting you, where the narrowing is happening, and whether or not anything else is going on. We do this by using advanced medical diagnostics, then combine our findings with regenerative and complementary medicine to create a plan of recovery that works specifically for YOU.

Our treatment plan aims to lower your symptoms and deal with the root cause of the problem, allowing you to get back to living pain-free while boosting your body’s natural healing abilities.

We achieve this by using stem cell therapy, which has been shown to greatly raise your body’s healing capabilities without the nasty side effects of surgery and drugs! We complement the cutting-edge therapy with the rest of our integrative medicine approach, using spinal decompression, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), traction therapy, medical acupuncture, physical medicine and rehabilitation, wellness care, and healthy habits education to create the most comprehensive, effective, and unique recovery program for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Spinal stenosis is when you get pain, numbness, and/or weakness in your arms or legs (depending on where the stenosis is happening) due to the narrowing of the spinal canal. This narrowing causes pressure on your nerves by your spine, creating these symptoms. It’s usually age-related, mostly affecting individuals over the age of 60.

The pain often reduces when we bend forward or sit because we create more space in our vertebrae with that movement, which can ease some of the pressure on the structures around them.

We strongly believe in the evidence that shows how powerful the body is at healing itself, which is why we utilize integrative medicine to put your body in a regenerative state, giving it the tools it needs to relieve pain and heal the issue faster and more effectively than surgery or drugs do. We seek lasting relief, not just quick fixes!

MEET ELIZABETH BECKNER AND DAISHA ESCAMILLA

OUR CALIFORNIA LICENSED PHLEBOTOMISTS

Liz started doing personal blood draws after her son, Dashiell, was born with Zellwegers disease. His diagnosis required numerous blood draws and drug levels throughout his life. After sitting through long wait times at the labs followed by watching many different phlebotomists, many new to the job, struggle to find his veins, often poking him multiple times, as a seasoned phlebotomist, Liz decided to draw his blood at home and hand deliver it to the lab myself. Soon after she began doing personal touch blood draws so she can now offer that same personalized service to you.

Liz graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Biology in 1994. She moved to Santa Barbara and earned her phlebotomy certificate in 1995. Liz began working at St. Francis Medical Center in the Physical Therapy Department and quickly transferred to the Laboratory. Perfecting her venipuncture techniques on all floors of the hospital, including post-operative patients, pregnant women going into labor, sick or premature babies, and emergency room patrons, she then improved her patient care skills working for internal medicine doctors, one of whom was the Medical Director of Hospice and won Doctor of the Year. In 1999, Liz started working with a group of local retinal surgeons. Her primary job consisted of injecting dye into arm veins and photographing its flow through the patients retinal vessels. When patients are worried about their diagnosis or apprehensive about the procedure because of difficult veins, her quick, almost pain free needle stick and kind but professional bed side manner would put them at ease.

The various settings and patients Liz has encountered over the years have enabled her to become very skilled at finding the smallest and most fragile of vessels. Her specialities include infants and the elderly, diabetics of all ages, patients with rolling veins, on blood thinners or chemotherapy. She lives in downtown Santa Barbara, travels from Goleta to Carpintera and brings all the necessary supplies directly to you. All she needs from you is a lab request and your home or office becomes an instant draw station. Appointment times are very flexible, and she is friendly, reliable and punctual. Be kind to your arm and treat yourself to the luxury blood draw you deserve!!!

MEET MICHAEL BROOKINS; BS, CNMT, ABAAHP

Mike brings more than just a medical perspective to his clients; at the age of 14, he began an athletic career as a pole-vaulter that would end up taking him on an incredible journey over the next 13 years of his life. Throughout his athletic journey Mike was constantly working to find the ideal balance of fitness and proper nutrition in order to maximize his performances. Combined with his medical knowledge the years of athletic experience provide a unique and successful combination that serve to benefit his staff and clients.

“After I shifted the focus of my practice from Sports Medicine into Nuclear Medicine specifically Interventional Endocrinology. I found myself questioning our western medical paradigm…Here I was performing thyroid cancer and Hyperthyroidism treatments with harmful radical thyroid radioactive ablations which really made me take a hard look in the mirror and become more of a researcher to find safer and more effective options to better treat my clients. During my research I realized that there were very few, if any, medically directed programs focused towards achieving a “Healthier Lifestyle” rather than typical “Diet” fads.” A few years later after training and working with some of the worlds foremost Bio-identical Hormone Replacement specialists I became Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Sort of just found my passion and the answers I had been looking for with this new specialty finally after years of treating people with the Band-Aid “fix it when its broken” mentality instead of at the root cause.”

Mike has spent the last 10 years in Anti-Aging, Functional and Regenerative Medicine. He has trained over 120 physicians in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and consulting for their practices. Today his vision is a reality, and clients from all of the world come to benefit from the successful programs that have been established at Age Management Institute Santa Barbara. He firmly believes in educating the patient about the importance of good nutrition, hormone balance, stress management, and regular exercise is the key to aging well and having a high quality of life well into your golden years.
