New Arthritis Treatment Center Opened in Del Mar

In Del Mar (San Diego, Ca. USA), a new center opened on April 7 – which will offer traditional and alternative treatments for arthritis.

Located in 12865 Pointe Del Mar Way, the said arthritis treatment center is called The Institute for Specialized Medicine.

The center’s founder – Dr. Alexander Shikhman – is a local doctor who previously worked for Scripps Health.

Shikhman put $70,000 toward site renovations and $50,000 towards specialized equipment. The total investment was $500,000.

It is the only center in San Diego County that specifically treats arthritis and autoimmune disorders, according to Shikhman, who called the center “a kind of one-stop shop.”

The Institute will function as a private company with three full-time staff members. Shikhman said he plans to add up to three more employees this year.

Treatments, including physical exams, ultrasounds, shock wave therapy and infusion therapy, begin with a diagnostic evaluation, which will be used to create an individualized therapy program.

Nutrition counseling, Tuina (a Chinese therapy similar to massage) and acupuncture will be available.

Hmmm…my kind of treatment center! 😉
