Like many of you I have suffered from chronic pain and after injuring my lower back I struggled to regain my quality of life before the injury. For approximately two years I was no longer able to get comfortable, straighten my leg to walk, carry my children, drive, or sit for more than 10 minutes without severe pain. I struggled with the limitations the pain put on me and in my search for relief I found that my options were just as limited.
Medical specialists offered anti-depressants, steroid injections, pain medications, and surgery but the options I was presented with didn’t resonate with me. I had seen so many become dependent upon medications and I didn’t want that to be my story too. Frustrated with conventional pain therapy and looking for answers, I began to explore alternative medicine. I discovered through my research that I was trapped in a chronic pain cycle and that the root of my pain could be resolved by breaking that cycle.
Becoming aware that the body can remain in a pain cycle prompted me to search out and utilize therapies that would stop the inflammation and initiate a healing response. Fortunately, I was introduced to two very innovative and alternative therapies that focused on disrupting the pain cycle, thereby eliminating chronic inflammation.
The treatments I had found were Prolotherapy and Prolozone therapy. Prolotherapy and Prolozone therapy both induce an acute injury response in the body, facilitating cellular repair and regeneration at the site of injury. Both therapies not only addressed my inflammation and pain but they gave me relief without risk of addiction and debilitating side-effects.
Utilizing alternative therapies, I regained my freedom from pain and for the past several years as a Naturopathic Physician, I’ve provided non-narcotic pain therapy for others. The therapies I utilize are geared towards breaking the pain cycle, stimulating cellular repair, rejuvenating damaged tissues, and restoring normal function for almost any part of the body. I invite you to experience a natural therapy that may alleviate your pain and restore your freedom the way it did for me.
Some of the conditions that respond well to Prolotherapy and Prolozone therapy are:
- Back and neck pain
- Tendon and ligament injury
- Knee and Shoulder injuries
- Joint pain
