Combining experts from the uniquely specialized fields of neurosurgery, pain management, physiatry and physical therapy, the Consultants in Neurological Surgery (CNS) Group have brought their comprehensive approach to every aspect of treatment to a new headquarters located conveniently just off the Palmetto Expressway in the heart of Pinecrest. One of the few alliance of practitioners in Dade County currently operating under this all-encompassing model, the group provides an unmatched brand of personalized, highly attentive care only made possible by the direct cooperation of its members.
Patients arriving will no doubt take note of the center’s ample parking, spacious lobby area and open layout.Warm, natural light – ideal for therapeutic purposes – is used to great effect throughout the building.
In the physical therapy wing, patients will find top-of-the-line equipment such as balance apparatuses, parallel bars, various weights and therapeutic-specific exercise machines, such as the Keiser Functional Trainer, a multi-functional machine designed for a complete body workout with hundreds of different possible applications provided by its adjustable arms. Utilizing compressed air as opposed to weights for resistance, the machine is ideal for rehab and prehab use due to its almost nonexistent impact.
For noninvasive pain management, the CNS Group uses ultrasound/electric stimulation combination units, which have been proven to both ease pain and assist healing; and a Triton DTS Traction System, a cervical and lumbar decompression and mobilization table which effectively unloads the spine, decreases bulging and protruded discs, eases pain and pressure, stretches ligaments and tendons, and increases range of motion and mobility.
Fully programmable with variable speed control for ultimate patient comfort, the machine also serves as a learning tool, boasting a full-color clinical graphic library that includes anatomical images, common pathologies and a detailed belting technique tutorial.
To ensure privacy, comfort and cleanliness, patients are provided with private examination rooms and a restroom fit with a shower for post-therapy use.
The CNS Group is located at 10101 S. Dixie Hwy. For more information, call 305-370- 3439 or visit www.thecnsgroup.net.
