As we move through life, we often accumulate injuries to our joints.
Joint pain can alter your activities, mood, and even your relationships.
Imagine living pain-free without surgery or medication.
We help joint pain conditions using whole health treatments and regenerative therapies, such as prolotherapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy.
About joint pain, and your options:
Mild to crippling pain can be caused by a structure-altering trauma, a simple sports injury, an accumulation of small traumas, repetitive motion, joint-tissue degradation due to age or stress, or any combination of these factors. Any damage that destabilizes a joint gets worse over time, often becoming arthritis. Pain may affect your work and play, sleep, motivation, and energy. Reducing joint pain may free you up to be more active, and more healthy overall.
As we age, our hormone levels decrease, we become less physically active, we lose muscle mass and bone mass, and often we gain body fat (sarcopenia and osteopenia). These changes can, in turn, alter our movement patterns and walking gait, which further stresses our ligaments and joints, creating pain patterns that amplify the history of our injuries.
Joint-pain conditions respond to regenerative treatments (including prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapy) in upper and lower back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, neck pain, TMJ pain, sternum and clavicle pain, rotator cuff injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel, hip and groin pain, knee pain, arthritic joints, torn or damaged cartilage, ankle sprains, Achilles pain, and plantar fasciitis.
Most of our new patients have been to orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy. We are confident that these pain syndromes can be repaired with naturopathic medical care, bioidentical hormone therapy, prolotherapy, and exercise. Systematically treating each injury accumulated throughout the body with prolotherapy restores the entire musculoskeletal system to pain-free and proper function.
Massage, acupuncture, over-the-counter pain relievers, yoga, and/or physical therapy may help. If not, you may be a candidate for regenerative treatments.
