DONT  REPLACE  YOUR
HIP-      REGENERATE IT !

For many battling with the constant debilitating pain of an osteoarthritic hip,Total Hip replacements offer the promise of new found mobility, function and a life free of pain.The reality however is that many who opt for Hip replacements are left with a multitude of complications and potential long term risks that they are often unaware of. Research appearing in the  British Medical Journal found  7- 23%of patients who’ve had a hip replacement continued to have unresolved pain.

COMPLICATIONS OF HIP REPLACEMENTS:

* With metal on metal hip replacements there is the risk of metal leaching into the blood, which can be toxic.
* Risk of tiny metal fragments breaking off from replaced joint and damaging surrounding tissue.
* Residual pain and reduced function.
* Increased occurrence of revision surgery or early  removal of artificial hip.
* Need for follow up MRI scans to monitor state of hip replacement.

PROLOTHERAPY IS A SAFER SOLUTION

Prolotherapy is a unique injection treatment described as a non surgical joint regeneration that works to promote healing and repair in degenerated tissue. Prolo on patients with chronic unresolved hip pain showed improvement in walking, exercise ability, depression, functional ability and dependence on pain medication.

ELBOW PAIN EPIPHANY

Tennis elbow is an overuse injury resulting in inflammation of the extensor tendons in the forearm.Tennis elbow specifically involves the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area (called the lateral epicondyle) of the elbow and it is also known as lateral epicondylitis. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

  • Tenderness on the outer bony part of the elbow
  • Morning stiffness of the elbow with persistent aching
  • Soreness in the forearm
  • Pain worse when grasping or holding
  • Any repetitive motion of the wrist, including tennis, hedge clipping, excessive use of a hammer or screwdriver, painting, or any activity that requires excessive constant gripping or squeezing can cause tennis elbow.
  • During tennis, the following techniques can lead to tennis elbow:

CAUSES

o   A poorly executed one-handed backhand. o   A late forehand swing resulting in excessive wrist flexion. o   Snapping and turning the wrist while serving with full power PROLOTHERAPY TO HELP Prolotherapy is a regenerative injection therapy that stimulates the immune system to heal injured areas by triggeriing an inflammatory response in these affected tissues.Prolotherapy works to strengthen ligaments and tendons,stabilize the elbow and ultimately put an end to elbow pain.To read documented research showing success of prolo on Tennis Elbow click here.
