Are you frustrated with feeling tired and fatigued all the time? Do you suffer from chronic pain? Do you often not feel well but you haven’t found a doctor that has been able to help? Have you tried countless medications and doctors with no relief or answers? Are you sick of having to take so many prescription medications? If this sounds like you, than you should call Revolution Health and Wellness at 918-935-3636 and hear about how Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO can help you on the path to better health through the use of alternative medicine in Tulsa today.
Dr. Chad Edwards worked as an emergency physician in several hospitals in TN and KY. He is board certified in Family Medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine. When Dr. Edwards left the Army, he and his family moved back to Tulsa and he worked at a Warren Clinic for one year. He started to recognize the great need for an alternative medicine clinic in Tulsa, so he started the Revolution Health and Wellness Clinic. Dr. Edwards focuses on sports medicine and health and wellness as a preventative way to revolutionize your health, reduce the risk of injury, and decrease disease. He has also helped countless patients that suffer with chronic pain.
Dr. Edwards at Revolution Health evaluates each patient using a holistic and natural approach. A natural approach is that absolute best way to view medicine whenever possible. Sadly, Western medicine is focused mostly on “sick care” instead of health care. It is focused on illness and disease, rather than prevention. All medications have side effects, several of them which are adverse, that go along with their intended effects. At Revolution Health, it has been our experience that we can get just as good, if not better, results using alternative medicine in Tulsa than these modern medications.
Dr. Edwards has the flexibility to prescribe natural remedies as well as synthetic medications if they are needed. When patients come to us that are extremely sick, our first goal is to stop the progression of their disease. Unlike Western medicine, we then focus on eliminating it and not just putting a bandage on the symptoms with harsh unnatural medications. Our goal is to get our patients as healthy as possible. We’ve have yet to see anybody get healthier by being on more medications, those medications just keep their disease progressing, at best. There is a big difference there.
At Revolution Health and Wellness, we have the ability to prescribe our patients medications as needed in order to optimize their physiology so that we can then improve their health. Then, once your health has improved, you will no longer need the medications and we can eliminate them. Many of our patients are surprised to hear that they don’t need to be on several medications for the rest of our lives, and that just simply isn’t true. Like we mentioned, we’ve never seen anyone get healthier by taking MORE medications. The flexibility to be able to prescribe medications and then use a natural approach to achieve total wellness allows us to give the best of both worlds to our patients.

Revolution Health and Wellness clinic was founded by Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO. Dr. Edwards uses a therapy process called Prolotherapy to help cure patients of their chronic pain issues. Most of our patients have never heard of prolotherapy and are full of questions about this form of alternative medicine in Tulsa. Read on to learn some history about the use of prolotherapy in helping people find relief from their chronic pain. To learn even more, call Dr. Edwards today at Revolution Health at 918-935-3636.
Prolotherapy was first started by Dr George Hackett over 80 years ago. Dr. Hackett was a trauma surgeon in Ohio and discovered that injecting a proliferant solution into the body increased the thickness of ligaments, so he set out to study its effects. He started studying and injecting patients in an attempt to cure their pain with a 90% success rate. His first book was published in 1956 and was called “Ligament and Tendon Relaxation Treated by Prolotherapy.” Prolotherapy is an approved procedure by the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Integrative Pain Medicine, and we have been using it as a highly successful form of alternative medicine in Tulsa.
Dr. C. Everett Koop was a former US Surgeon General and a huge proponent of prolotherapy. Prolotherapy’s effectiveness is dependent on eliminating a number of traditional ways of treating chronic pain, such as the use of anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, smoking, and applying ice. All of these things decrease the body’s ability to have an appropriate inflammatory response and will decrease the effectiveness of prolotherapy. Many of our patients that suffer from chronic pain conditions often wonder why they have never heard about prolotherapy before. Believe it or not, most physicians that practice traditional Western medicine haven’t even heard of this form of alternative medicine in Tulsa either.
Dr. Koop believed that many medical professionals are skeptical because prolotherapy often seems too good to be true and much too easy of a solution to the many complicated problems that afflict the human body that have been statistically very difficult to treat. Proliferant solutions are inexpensive, natural, and easy to formulate. Because of this, no pharmaceutical company wants to market them because there is no money in developing the substances. In a country where there is a list a mile long of reasons for patients to be skeptical of the medical system, it makes sense to be skeptical of a solution that looks so easy. We live in a society that is driven by Evidence Based Medicine (EBM), which means that most medical decisions are based on evidence that is derived from sound scientific research.
Dr. Edwards hasn’t been able to find one patient who has been exposed to the benefits of prolotherapy that walked away from it doubting its effectiveness. We will give you all of the information you need in order to make an informed decision on whether you think that prolotherapy is right for you. Prolotherapy is an easy procedure that can dramatically improve most people’s pain. Prolotherapy has changed many people’s lives, and we know that it can change yours as well. Call Revolution Health today at 918-935-3636, and we’ll discuss how prolotherapy can help you live with less chronic pain.
