Types of Care
New Accidents and Injuries
Anyone that has been involved in an accident should be professionally evaluated at the center as soon as possible. This is true whether you are experiencing pain or are currently without symptoms.
Our chiropractic physicians are trained to identify injuries that are oftentimes missed or otherwise overlooked in an emergency room or primary care setting.
One of the conditions that we often see is post traumatic dysfunction. These are conditions that result from unresolved traumas, which occurred months, years or even decades earlier.
Most patients suffering from posttraumatic dysfunction, are not even aware of what the original cause of the condition was. Only through careful examination and a detailed history are we able to make the connection between their current condition and a past trauma.
In these cases the original trauma may have caused little or no immediate symptoms. To make matters worse, often times the person was told at the time of the accident, by well-meaning but ill-informed healthcare professionals, that there was no injury or that their symptoms were unimportant and should be ignored.
In time, original symptoms did disappear, but the body did not properly heal.
If you or someone you know has been involved in an automobile accident or other type of personal injury, past or present, you need to be aware that symptoms are not always reliable indicators of the actual level of injury. Injuries can occur at the time of the trauma, which may not be obvious for days, weeks, months or even years later.
Injuries that have gone untreated will commonly cause a variety of health problems. Some of these symptoms may include; migraine headaches, muscle spasms or tightness, weak muscles, poor posture, scoliosis, joint pain and stiffness, nerve pain, circulatory problems or fatigue, to name but a few.
Chronic Conditions and Disorders
Chronic and recurrent conditions and disorders can have a devastating effect on a person's psychological well-being, interpersonal relationships, income earning capacity, or any aspect of life.
The chronic pain, dysfunction and disability associated with these conditions can make a person feel like life is just not worth living.
Thousands of people, suffering from a wide variety of chronic conditions, have been helped at our center with chiropractic and alternative medicine methods.
Can we automatically "cure" any person suffering from any kind of condition? Unfortunately not, but we are able to help the vast majority of our patients significantly improve the state of their health. As health is restored, conditions improve and symptoms are reduced or eliminated.
Many people come to us after other methods have failed. They have been told that no help is available, or worse yet, that there conditions are imaginary and self-induced.
One of the most unfortunate aspects of suffering from a chronic health condition is the associated emotional stress that can result from it. Fear, anger, hopelessness, insecurity and indecisiveness can limit the person's ability to persevere until the right kind of help is found.
We hope that you find the information contained in these pages helpful and hopeful, and we encourage you to follow up by writing, calling and consulting with us personally.
Alternative care for children has been part of our practice since 1982. Since all of our methods are nonforceful and noninvasive, we safely and responsibly care for newborns on up. We have seen consistent success in the treatment of children with conditions such as: collect, chronic ear infections, allergies, ADHD, sensory integration, asthma, food sensitivities, spine and hip problems, scoliosis, headaches, back pain, foot and ankle problems, to name but a few. As is the case with adults, we are able to help children with their health whenever there is room for improvement.
"Because our treatment is noninvasive, children feel more at ease at our center."
If you have a child who is suffering from a specific condition and you would like to know what alternative medicine, holistic medicine or chiropractic care can do for him or her, we encourage you to make an appointment for an initial consultation. You can also contact us anytime via email, or by calling (508-229-0007). In this way we can answer your specific questions and evaluate and discuss your child's particular healthcare needs.
Wellness preventive care is all about early detection, maintenance and prevention. It may be the single most important service that we offer. It is also, unfortunately, the most poorly understood. (More information is available on our Phases of Care page)
Cancer – An Alternative Medicine Approach
The application of alternative medicine and holistic techniques can help the human body replenish, restore and repair healthy tissue while enabling the bodies own immune system to reject unhealthy cancer cells.
We are here to help you, whether you're looking for natural techniques that can be used along with a Western medical approach to cancer or as standalone alternative medicine techniques.
At the Cherubino Health Center we offer a holistic whole body approach to people suffering from various forms of cancer.
People routinely travel to our center for care from across the country and around the world. We have successfully integrated naturally based systems of healing from around the world.
The resulting global approach to medicine is of great benefit when building personalized treatment programs for individual patients.
Whether you are interested in building your body up to sustain the rigors of chemotherapy and radiation, strengthening your system for the ordeal of surgery or are looking for help to enable your body to fight the cancer on its own, we have treatment programs that can help you meet your specific goals.
Each and every day 43,835 people in the United States are told that they have some form of cancer. The Center for Health Statistics reports this number of cases as newly diagnosed.
That means that in the United States alone over 16 million people will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
While certain types of cancer, mainly skin, have become far more manageable and even curable, newly diagnosed cases of cancer in this country and around the world continue to grow at an alarming rate.
The treatment of cancer is a multibillion-dollar industry. It is not uncommon to find the latest cancer drugs costing the patient $2000-$3000 per pill. That's right, reread it if you must, that was thousand.
And even if the money is available and the patient is fortunate enough to have a healthcare plan that will actually pay for the medication that the doctors have prescribed, what are we left with?
It is a well-known fact that these drugs are poisons. The concept is to use poisonous chemotherapy and radiation to kill cancer cells. I don't think any of us have a problem with killing cancer cells however every one of us should have a problem with healthy cells being killed as well.
To make matters worse there has historically been a profound lack of availability when it comes to alternative supportive treatments and therapies.
These alternative and integrative natural approaches to health have been shown to help protect a person's vital organs and rebuild damaged tissues.
The Good News
The good news is that more and more people are beginning to utilize alternative medicine treatments either in conjunction with or as a substitute for drug based methods.
Who Are We?
Cherubino Health Center was established in 1982 by natural health practitioner Dr. Ron Cherubino. Dr. Ron was on a mission to stop what he saw as needless suffering from millions of Americans.
He is a proponent of what is known as global medicine. Basically stated, global medicine proposes the inclusion and integration of all workable systems of healing from around the world, alternative medicine as well as traditional. The concept is a simple one – whatever is best for the health and well-being of the patient should be readily available to that patient.
With this simple but profound concept in mind Cherubino Health Center has grown into a world-class natural health-care center.
Thousands upon thousands of patients have seen remarkable success with the use of this holistic alternative medicine approach to health. These people have been freed from chronic debilitating pain, depression and anxiety, life-threatening heart and other organ conditions as well as cancer to name but a few.
We recognize that the human body is a self-healing organism, made up of a physical body, mind and spirit. The human body is created with certain inborn abilities that are designed to maintain a high level of health and wellness.
The practitioners of Cherubino Health Center have a deep understanding of systems of healing from around the world. They are passionate to help people improve the quality of their lives by improving the quality of their health.
The availability of various approaches to healing from around the world is one of the defining characteristics of treatment at our center.
Our approach to healing is integrated.
This means that each practitioner works with every other practitioner in concert and that a wide variety of techniques are available.
It is therefore possible for a patient to receive a variety of simultaneous approaches in a coordinated manner under one roof.
This system provides the patient with a truly unique healing opportunity which by its very nature is far more capable of meeting in addressing complex health needs and concerns.
Think of it, when you go into a hospital you expect drugs and/or surgery. When you go into a typical chiropractic office you expect something to do with your spine and bones. In an acupuncture office you expect needles.
Any one of these approaches is fine if that's what your condition actually calls for. However when in office offers a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment, you can never be sure that you are receiving the exact kind of treatment that you need, since it's the same approach that is offered to anyone that walks to the door.
In a very real sense you are being asked to be your own doctor. All too often the single approach offices have a "cure-all" attitude about the specific technique that they offer.
At Cherubino Health Center we frankly don't believe that anyone approach is appropriate for all people. This is why we utilize a variety of approaches and techniques from around the world.
When it comes to health and wellness our goal is to help you reach your goal, to the greatest extent possible.
How to Get Started
Step One: (Contact Us) – Call or email us so we can get an idea of the kind of help you looking for.
Step Two: (Information Gathering Phase) – We'll direct you in this since the information needed will vary from person to person depending on their individual situation and personal health needs. Some forms are available online and may be downloaded to your computer while other forms can be emailed or sent via US mail. Still other forms will need to be filled out once you arrive at the center.
Step Three: (Evaluation Phase) – This is done at the center with one or more practitioners and will vary depending on your individual needs. This may involve physical examinations such as muscle, spine, nervous system, joints, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, skin etc. We often perform an EMI test in order to evaluate overall body function.
Step Four: (Report of Findings and Treatment Planning) – The course of treatment that we recommend is highly individualized and will depend on each patient's individual health needs and personal goals.
Step Five: (Treatment Options) – Our practitioners will make recommendations based on your history, examination and findings as well as their experience with similar cases. In most cases there are a number of choices to be made. These include decisions on specific types of treatment, frequency of care, duration of visits, number of practitioners to be involved etc.
What Is the Waiting Time for an Appointment?
This is highly dependent on individual circumstances and can range anywhere from same-day appointments for acute care to six or more weeks for certain types of multi-day intensive care programs.
How Much Will It Cost?
Can My Spouse or Other Family Members Come with Me?
Absolutely. We encourage patients to include whomever they would like in their healing experience. Space restrictions are sometimes a concern so we ask that you let us know when you would like to have people attend your treatment sessions.
