Crossroads offers several different types of services.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

OMT involves hands-on manipulation to gently free areas of the body that have restricted motion. Treatment involves respect for the tissues as they are moved to more free motion through the use of several different techniques tailored for each specific patient problem. Some techniques used include:

  • Cranial
  • Myofascial Release
  • Articulatory
  • Counter strain
  • Facilitated Positional Release
  • High Velocity Low Amplitude
  • Visceral (internal organ) Manipulation

Many of these techniques are described in more detail in the About Osteopathic Medicine section. Several other musculoskeletal tools may be suggested such as iontophoresis, NMES, hot packs, trigger point injections, tennis balls, etc. OMT can be done in outpatient, inpatient, assisted living, nursing home and hospice settings. Dr. Sleszynski and Dr. Rummel are on staff at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center for these services.

General Medical Care

As a specialty clinic we are not classified for primary care, though Dr. Sleszynski and Dr. Rummel do provide some primary care services. Christy Rummel, FNP is certified through the Institute of Functional Medicine and uses the integrative concepts of functional medicine as a platform to her holistic approach.

Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Mainstream medication and diagnostics are used when appropriate. Lab work can be drawn at the office. Anyone needing emergency care during closed clinic hours should go to an Urgent Care Facility of their choice.

When indicated saliva, urine, blood and/or stool analysis may be used for diagnosis and monitoring of treatment. Recommendations may include vitamins, herbs, glandulars and/or other natural means. Some of these supplements are available from the office. Other recommendations on lifestyle changes, stress reduction and exercise may be made.

Consultations are done to provide preventative health advice and to obtain information on the use of more natural means to treat conditions. Visit frequency may be one for consult or several if treatment is recommended. Initial visits take approximately 1-2 hours to complete so patients should come being prepared to stay a while. Patients may be referred by another physician or self-referred if their insurance permits it.

Massage Therapy

Many insurance companies will cover manual therapy when supervised here by one of the medical providers. It is classified with physical therapy. We do bill insurance for these services if appropriate. Ask about massage when scheduling your next appointment.

Energy Healing

“For a long time, people have wondered how consciousness arises out of the various physical structures in the body. It has been assumed more recently that human consciousness arises out of some proper combination of chemical and biological structures in the human brain, and many researchers have sought to isolate exactly where the physical seat of consciousness is. But nobody has ever been able to pin down exactly where or what this ‘consciousness’ really is.

“For the last few centuries we have believed that consciousness is created by combining the right sorts of chemical and biological structures, such as in the human brain. But it turns out that this understanding is incorrect. Instead, all matter – the entire physical world – is actually created from consciousness! While still not fully embraced by the mainstream scientific community, this understanding may be the single most important advance in science in the last hundred years.

“Why does this matter for those of us who are not physicists? Simply put, if consciousness creates matter, then changing consciousness will change matter. Because our bodies are made out of matter, we often think that changing something in the body – say, a tumor – requires manipulating it directly on the physical level, such as with surgery or drugs. While this can work, it is also possible to change matter by changing the underlying consciousness that creates the matter.” ~ From Where Science Meets Spirit, Brent Phillips

In the emerging field of energy medicine we offer energy healing modalities of Quantum-Touch and The Emotion Code.
