Written by Regenerative Health on . Posted in Treatment Discussions

ALTERNATIVES TO KNEE SURGERY AND REPLACEMENTS

Disabling Knee Arthritis and chronic unresolved knee pain is a common facet of today’s world.Many patients opt for knee surgery or replacement in a desperate attempt to achieve pain relief and mobility. More than 600000 knee replacements are performed in the US each year.Many of these patients are still left with much pain and complications after surgery ,often requiring further surgery.
Prolotherapy offers an alternative to surgery providing pain relief,regenerating joint tissue and creating long term joint stability.The beauty of this treatment is that it achieves this without the numerous complications associated with surgery. 

COMPLICATIONS WITH KNEE REPLACEMENTS

Complications of knee replacements include bleeding,wound complications,thromboembolitic disease, instability, malalignment, joint infection and many more.To read about more possible complications of Knee Replacements click here.

PROLOTHERAPY AS THE EASY EFFECTIVE ANSWER 

In a recent press release from the Medical Journal of arthritis and rheumatology , Doctors suggested more than a third of Knee Replacements in the US were  inappropriate. To read more click here. Considering how intense and traumatic a knee replacement is to the joint, it is scary to find that surgery is so often done unnecessarily.

Prolotherapy is an injection therapy for chronic musculoskeletal injury. It involves the injecting of small volumes of an irritant solution at multiple painful ligament and tendon insertions and in adjacent joint spaces over several treatment sessions, aiming to stimulate healing and repair in these soft tissues and joints.To see success with Prolo and the degenerated knee click here.

Fibromyalgia and how Prolo can help!

Written by Regenerative Health on . Posted in Treatment Discussions

 

FIBROMYALGIA , AND HOW PROLO CAN HELP!

Fibromyalgia is a disabling condition characterized by chronic, widespread pain,fatigue,irritable bowel syndrome and psychological problems.There is no known cure for Fibromyalgia but there are many treatment options to manage it. Prolotherapy being one of the options that doesn’t have horrible side-effects or long term health risks.

CAUSES
There are several theories about the causes of Fibromyalgia.
Some of the possible causes include hormonal disturbances ,previous injury,trauma, infection, stress and genetic influences with no clear consensus about the exact cause.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

  • Chronic muscle pain, muscle spasms, or tightness
  •  Fatigue, reduced energy levels and insomnia.
  • Stiffness in  the morning or after periods in sedentary positions.
  • Memory and concentration problems together with an inability to perform simple mental tasks.
  • Gastrointestinal and bladder disturbances
  • Tension , migraine headaches, jaw and facial tenderness.
  • Sensitivity to smells, noise, bright lights, medications, certain foods, and cold.
  • Anxiety or depression.
  • Tingling or numbness in the face, arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Sensation of swelling (without actual swelling) in the hands and feet.
PROLO AND FIBROMYALGIA

Research shows increased rates of Fibromyalgia in people  with  neck injuries and whiplash injuries.This suggests that  a large portion of patients with Fibromyalgia have neck instability as a source of the problem.That  means that Prolo is the best solution in these cases.

Prolotherapy is an injection technique that stimulates a mild inflammatory response in the injured area to promote natural healing and repair in these damaged tissue.Fibromyalgia that results from whiplash is likely to have a great response to prolotherapy treatment.

WHY PROLO CAN HELP WHERE CORTISONE FAILS!

Written by Regenerative Health on . Posted in Treatment Discussions

WHY PROLO CAN WORK WHERE CORTISONE FAILS!

Epidural Cortico-steroid joint injections have been used extensively in the medical field to provide many with relief from joint pain. Recent research shows concerning results about  possible complications and negative long term effects of these injections particularly with prolonged use.

WHY EPIDURAL CORTISONE INJECTIONS SHOULD BE USED CAUTIOUSLY:

* Research shows a significant number of neurological complications occurring with Epidural  cortisone injections including 41 cases of Arachnoiditis.To read more about this click here.
*Beneficial effects of cortisone are often short lived as they do only provide temporary relief.
* Epidural cortisone injections are also shown to adversely effect mineral bone density of the hip in post menopausal women.To read more click here.
* Cortisone inhibits the inflammatory process and since our body’s heal naturally via inflammation this means these injections hampers our natural joint healing and repair.
* Cortisone injection promotes  cartilage and joint destruction especially in those with osteoarthritis of the joint.
* Cortisone shots can lead to tendon ruptures particularly in athletes returning to sport quickly after injury.To read more click here.

WHY PROLOTHERAPY WORKS WHERE CORTISONE FAILS!

Prolotherapy involves injecting a solution into the joint to initiate the healing process and cause regeneration of soft tissue. Prolotherapy results in a stronger and more stable joint. Prolotherapy promotes rather than interfers with the natural healing process.
Where steroid injections provide temporary relief ,Prolotherapy promotes natural healing and repair within joint structures and offers a permanent solution to joint pain, dysfunction and degeneration.
