Dr. Brian Paris Examines “Healthy Baller”

Dr. Brian Paris of Advanced Wellness Systems sits down with Blair O’Donovan, Co-Owner and Lead Trainer of Healthy Baller, to get the inside scoop on the state-of-the-art sports performance center that has a fresh take on training student athletes in Montgomery County.

Healthy Baller specializes in performance testing, training and nutrition, but Blair says what makes the performance center so unique is Healthy Baller’s personal, hands-on approach. “Part of working as a Healthy Baller team member is you have to know every little bit about your athlete, what their goals are and what their direction is,” Blair explains. Much like Dr. Paris, Blair is passionate about creating strong bonds and relationships with his clients at Healthy Baller — forming a “Healthy Baller tree,” as he calls it.

Blair and his Healthy Baller team also implement a dynamic training method, that prioritizes movement over weightlifting and bodybuilding. “We want movement to be a high priority here. Because if the kids are moving well, they’ll have a much less chance of being injured,” says Blair. Dr. Paris agrees, noting that although there are more trainers, knowledge and fancy equipment available in 2016, he sees more injuries today than ever before.

Over the last several years, Advanced Wellness Systems and Healthy Baller have developed a strong relationship, due in part to the value both Dr. Paris and Blair place on heart and hustle. “If there’s an [injury related] issue that we just are not familiar with or just feel like it needs a higher level of attention, the first call we make is to Advanced Wellness,” says Blair. “I’ve never experienced any group treat pain and treat clients as comprehensively as I’ve seen done there.”

Hit with Copay Increases, AWS Puts Patients First

Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal recently raised their copay for chiropractic and osteopathic treatment by $5. Though on the surface a $5 increase seems minor, the impact on the patient is enormous, as those who sustain injuries requiring multiple treatments are forced to pay the price.

While patients take a hit at the hand of insurance companies, Advanced Wellness Systems continues to put our patients first, with integrative, hands-on care. All of our treatments, procedures, and policies operate with the single overall goal of a healthier, happier patient. Our patient-centric philosophy drives us to continuously develop new programs and initiatives with the health and wellness of our patients in mind–which is why we are excited to announce the upcoming arrival of two brand new treatments that will help our patients strengthen and heal more effectively than ever before.

The first of these treatments is cryotherapy, which uses subzero temperatures to help treat a number of conditions including fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis and inflammation, among others. A single treatment only lasts 2½ minutes, making cryotherapy extremely time efficient and manageable even with a busy schedule.

The benefits of whole body cryotherapy include:

  • Decreased Muscle Soreness, Pain and Inflammation
  • Improved Muscle Strength and Joint Functioning
  • Decreased Injury Recovery Time
  • Increased Energy and Athletic Performance
  • Improved Immune System and Blood Circulation
  • Decreased Fatigue
  • Reduced Cellulite and Tightened Skin
  • Increased Cell Rejuvenation–Leading to Improved Health of Skin, Nails and Hair
  • Decreased Signs of Aging
  • Increased Metabolism and Calorie Burn

The second breakthrough treatment, coming soon to Advanced Wellness Systems, also enables the patient to save time while experiencing incredible results. ARX is an exercise technology that removes all limitations of conventional, gravity-based equipment by delivering 100% resistance throughout an entire exercise movement. The speed of the motor is slow and controlled, giving patients safe and adaptable resistance throughout their full range of motion. This equipment is designed to provide patients with the safest, most effective form of rehabilitation available.
