About Supplementation

At Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine our health care providers are committed to helping you improve your well being through nutrition and the use of science-based nutraMetrix supplementation.  The entire nutraMetrix product line of advanced nutraceuticals is formulated using the latest research, cutting-edge ingredients, and industry-leading best practices. Many nutraMetrix nutraceuticals are available using the Isotonix delivery system, designed to maximize your body’s ability to operate at its highest capacity. Isotonix products have been carefully formulated to offer enhanced bioavailability. These isotonic formulations are more effective than standard formulas because they offer maximum delivery of actives into the bloodstream since they are formulated as a replica of your body’s own fluids, such as tears, sweat and plasma.

While many products may contain fillers and binders, potentially slowing down delivery of vital nutrients, Isotonix products are delivered without fillers and binders; meaning the stomach has very little work to do since the pH and tonicity are carefully designed to allow the stomach to quickly release all of the nutrients into the small intestine. With our nutraMetrix Isotonix formulas, this process takes about five minutes, whereas a standard vitamin tablet can take up to four hours.

Effective vitamin and mineral supplements help to support a healthy immune system, promote the transformation of food into energy, support a healthy cardiovascular system, support strong bones, promote mental clarity, maintain normal metabolic functioning, promotes healthy growth and repair of tissues, help maintain normal blood pressure and promote water and electrolyte balance in the body.

By taking charge of your well-being, not only will you feel healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and reach your personal weight goals, you will also slow down your natural aging process, improve your skin health and appearance, and maintain cognitive and mental focus!

Patient Services - Botox

yoga line

Botulinum neurotoxin (Botox) therapy offers a breakthrough in treatment of multiple musculoskeletal (skin and bone) and neurological (nervous system) conditions.

Botox is derived from a bacteria-produced toxin that is purified and diluted to the point of being extremely safe. Thus, it is a versatile medication that has been used safely for years in the treatment of neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy, blephrospasm and cervical dystonia. Over the last 10 years the understanding of the mechanisms of pain has greatly advanced and with it, the increased usage of Botox.

Our physicians administer Botox injections at our College Parkway and Orchard Park locations. Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine is one of the few medical practices in all of Western New York to utilize this advanced medication.

Our physicians' extensive knowledge of muscle anatomy and function, coupled with the use of advanced electrodiagnostic and imaging tools, allows our physicians to precisely place the medicine in the specific target muscles.

Our team is one of the few in the country that uses Ultrasound imaging technology for visualization of affected muscles and guidance of injections.

Treatments are then followed with state-of-the-art physical therapy to retrain and reverse muscle imbalances that frequently lead to various painful musculoskeletal disorders. These disorders include:

Chronic migraine and daily headaches


Evidence for Botox efficacy is growing daily. A recent, controlled study of 250 patients showed a 50% reduction in symptoms in the group that received the medication. Even more encouraging---patient experience at Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine shows an even greater percentage of improvement.

NOTE: The benefits of Botox have been shown to increase after three sequential applications, each three months apart. To be considered for this procedure, candidates need to have tried standard oral migraine prophylaxis medications first.

Chronic neck and low back pain


Chronic muscle pain after trauma such as work-related injuries and motor vehicle accidents, or in association with cervical and lumbar fusions, has been shown to benefit from intramuscular injection of Botox. Patients are considered for this procedure only after an extensive trial of physical therapy and rehabilitation.

Piriformis Syndrome


This is either a stand-alone painful condition of an overactive buttock muscle or is found in conjunction with a lumbar disc herniation and resulting lumbar nerve root irritation. Several studies have shown a significant benefit of Botox injection into the piriformis muscle. Patient experience has also been extremely favorable.

Cerebral Palsy with spastic hemi or monoplegia


Botox has again been proven to be very effective in improving ambulation, hygiene, and fine motors skills of cerebral palsy patients.

In cases of spastic limb hemi or monoplegia associated with spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or stroke, Botox has proven effective in improving ambulation, hygiene, and fine motors skills.

Upper limb /lower limb spasticity


Onobotulinum (Botox) has been used for over 20 years for control of spasms of the upper and lower limbs that have been caused by Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, and Traumatic Brain Injury conditions.

FDA has officially recognized Botox treatment as a first line intervention for upper limb spasticity.

Injections are typically done every three months and help decrease spasm that forces uncontrolled bending of the elbow, wrist and clenching of fingers in the upper limb and in and downward pointing of the foot and ankle in the lower limb.

Benefits include decreased pain, better range of motion, greater ease of self care and hygiene and improved balance and gait.

Temporomandibular and orofacial disorders/dystonias


Botox has been found to be effective in relaxing key overactive orofacial (facial) muscles. As a result, patients can better tolerate orofacial physical therapy and utilization of therapeutic prosthetic devices. Treatment for these conditions is frequently undertaken with a team approach, including an orthodontist who specializes in temporomandibular disorders.

Hyperhidrosis


Excessive sweating can be a socially debilitating condition. It can be present in the arm pit region, groin, feet and hands.

Onobotulinum( Botox) therapy can effectively decrease excessive sweating for up to 9 months and is recommended for patients that have failed topical application therapy.
