Dr. Gayles seeing patients in Brevard County, Centrally Located in Merritt Island, FL
Dr. Gayles’ Brevard office replicates the menu of services available at the Lake Nona practice. The new Brevard facility, which opened in early February, is at 444 E. Merritt Island Causeway.
“It is centrally located so it is convenient for patients from all parts of the county,” said Gayles.
Because pain is so complex, Dr. Gayles offers treatment options that range from traditional therapies such as peripheral and spinal cord stimulation, epidural injections and medications as well as regenerative techniques such as stem cell therapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma).
The use of regenerative medicine, which harnesses the body’s own ability to heal itself, but accomplishes it in an accelerated manner is particularly exciting.
Regenerative techniques such as stem cell therapy restore the function of damaged tissues by using growth factors to enhance soft tissue regeneration. However, the therapy may not be appropriate for the needs of every patient.
Power of Stem Cell Therapy
Natural pain relief options such as lifestyle changes and physical therapy in addition to traditional pain relief can be helpful for some patients, but for others, more traditional methods such as surgery may be required.
Each patient is different, as is their treatment plan. When it comes to regenerative medicine, Dr. Gayles has walked the walk, and knows the amazing restorative potential of stem cell therapy. After a surgeon suggested surgery for a bad right shoulder that made sleep very difficult for Dr. Gayles, he searched for another option.
“It was in my dominant arm and surgery would have put me out of commission for some time,” he said.
Stem cell therapy did wonders to ease his pain and allowed him to continue his practice without any downtime.
“I now have no pain and no limitations to my activity,” he said. “It’s what convinced me about the power of stem cell therapy.”
Dr. Gayles takes a holistic treatment approach that encompasses a three-part, multi-disciplinary model. Physical therapy and rehabilitation services correct physical problems that aggravate pain and render the patient more vulnerable to future injury.
Psychological services, if indicated, address the emotional stress of chronic pain. The use of traditional or regenerative medicine techniques, together with a balanced lifestyle plan, maximize the potential for a pain-free life.
“The correct diagnosis combined with compassion for the patient is the key to proper treatment. Upon evaluation and diagnosis, we develop a customized treatment plan to get patients on the road to a more healthy, pain-free life,” said Dr. Gayles.
“Our holistic approach makes us unique.”
