What can Stem Cell Prolotherapy do for you? February 12 2018

Stem Cell Prolotherapy is a way to help your body go through the natural healing process. It's an effective procedure that can save people from the high financial costs and long recovery time of surgery.

What's the process?

Stem cells are carefully injected into an area of the body that has been injured like an ankle that keeps getting sprained or shoulder that's aching from overuse. Stem cells have the ability to transform and change into different types of tissue. Some of the different types of tissue stem cells transform into include cartilage, bone, nerves, ligaments, and tendons. When a patient undergoes Stem Cell Prolotherapy, stem cells are directly injected to the injured area of the body which helps speed up the healing process.

Why choose Stem Cell Prolotherapy over surgery for injuries?

Compared to options involving surgery, a Stem Cell Prolotherapy treatment only takes up to 30-40 minutes and uses a local anesthetic. Treatments don't result in the patient needing to stay overnight or lay in a hospital bed for several hours after stem cells have been injected. The patient receiving the treatment can drive him/herself home after the appointment is over.

Surgeries such as labrum repairs and total knee replacements cost significantly more than Stem Cell Prolotherapy treatments. Patients who undergo surgery like total knee replacements have to deal with the high costs and long recovery time. Surgery recovery time often takes several months for complete healing and rehabilitation.

There are no significant risks for infection or rejection from stem cells. Stem cells have the ability to assist your body in its healing process in a natural way.

Start your path towards total healing

By receiving Stem Cell Prolotherapy, you can start your path towards total healing. Well-known athletes such as NFL star Peyton Manning and pro golfer Tiger Woods have received Stem Cell Prolotherapy in order to heal properly and perform at high levels. The good news is that Stem Cell Prolotherapy is available for you too. Whether it's an ankle that keeps getting sprained or achy knees, there's a solution to your chronic pain.

How does Prolozone therapy help you recover and heal from different forms of chronic pain? February 05 2018

There's a natural way to help your body recover from different forms of chronic pain and it's called Prolozone therapy.

What is Prolozone therapy?: The homeopathic injection technique was developed and brought to light by Dr. Shallenberger. Oxygen is used to help damaged joints, ligaments, tendons, and tissues heal and regenerate. Prolozone therapy is different from Prolotherapy because Prolotherapy uses inflammation, not oxygen, to complete the healing process.

What problems does it solve?: This technique targets all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain. Musculoskeletal and joint pain often results in chronic pain for many people. The different areas of pain that never seem to go away include the following:

  • Degenerative and arthritic hips and knees
  • Degenerated discs
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Elbow pain

These injuries often happen because of overuse or trauma. Sports and other physical activities can contribute to such injuries and the pain can prevent people from living life to the fullest. It's easy to feel like the only options for such pain is surgery which can sometimes take months to fully recover.

Since complete healing is typically the end result of Prolozone therapy, chronic pain is put to an end. Prolozone therapy provides a permanent fix and not just a way to cope with the pain that comes from various pain problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, whiplash, and heel spurs. The success rates of this major pain reducing option has 75 percent or greater. Prolozone therapy also doesn't have the recovery times and rehabilitation that comes with surgery.

Thanks to its less invasive nature, Prolozone therapy helps everyone resume their normal physical activities pain-free such as going on hikes, mowing the lawn, and skiing.
