Specialty Services Q & A

Virginia Integrative Medical

What is Lyme disease?


Lyme disease is an infection caused by a bacteria that are carried by ticks. If left untreated, the infection may cause a number of symptoms, such as:

  • Fever or swollen joints
  • Bull’s eye rash at the site of the tick bite
  • Headache
  • Facial palsy
  • Nerve pain
  • Fatigue
  • Shooting pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands or feet
  • Heart palpitations

 

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, Dr. Tran can conduct a blood test to determine if you’ve contracted the infection, which can be treated with antibiotics. When caught and treated early, you can expect a full and rapid recovery.


What type of treatment can I expect for my migraines?


If you suffer from migraine headaches, you know how debilitating they can be. Dr. Tran offers a number of treatment options to help relieve your discomfort. Many people who suffer from migraines notice certain foods or activities can trigger the head pain. Dr. Tran works with you to help identify your triggers and assist you in avoiding them.

 

Additionally, Dr. Tran may recommend medications to help relieve the pain, including over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers. If you experience migraines on a fairly regular basis, Dr. Tran may also prescribe medication that prevents the onset of migraines.  He can offer nerve blocks to manage intractable flairs. 


Migraine can be treated and prevented using Botox injection.  OnabotulinumtoxinA, a type of Botox® injections, may  provide migraine relief for up to 12 weeks.

How are chronic wounds treated?


A wound that doesn’t heal within eight weeks is considered chronic and requires a specialty treatment to help promote the healing process. Dr. Tran cleans and dresses these wounds to improve healing and recovery. He also debrides them, which is the process of excising dead tissue.

 

PRP and STEM cell treatment can help heal chronic wound healing to speed up recovery and assist in preventing infection.
