At Revolution Health and Wellness, Dr. Edwards focuses on alternative medicine in Tulsa, sports medicine, and on health and wellness as a preventative strategy to improve your health, lower your risk of injury, and decrease disease. We know that whenever possible, it’s much better to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to health. Dr. Edwards takes a holistic approach with his patients. He thrives on being able to help people achieve better health and less pain when nothing else has been able to help. If there was only one thing that Revolution Health and Wellness could do to improve the health of Americans, it would to educate them on proper lifestyle.

A proper lifestyle includes improved nutrition, exercise, body composition, quitting smoking, relieving stress, and nutrition supplementation as needed. When we address each of these components to a healthy lifestyle, we ensure the best health possible for each of our patients and the prevention of numerous severe medical problems. At Revolution Health and Wellness, we use a solution called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy is a form of alternative medicine in Tulsa that stimulates the body to heal itself. Read on to find out more.

Most musculoskeletal pains are due to ligament and/or tendon relaxation. This happens when there is damage to these areas that results in instability. When we use Prolotherapy, Dr. Edwards injects a “proliferant” solution into the damaged areas, which then stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing damaged areas. Prolotherapy initiates a powerful inflammatory response by stimulating healing. In other words, Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself.

The body heals itself through a complex inflammatory process that consists of three phases. The first is inflammatory, which occurs within the first 36 hours following an injury. The second phase is proliferative, which takes approximately 36 hours to 6 weeks. And the third phase is called remodeling, which takes 6 weeks to 18 months on average. Most patients will require 3 to 6 procedures that are scheduled about 3 to 4 weeks apart. Call Revolution Health and Wellness today, and Dr. Edwards will get started on helping you to relieve your chronic pain as soon as possible.

Discover Prolotherapy, a Form of Alternative Medicine in Tulsa

Revolution Health and Wellness clinic was founded by Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO. Dr. Edwards uses a form of alternative medicine in Tulsa called Prolotherapy to help rid patients of their chronic pain issues. Most of our patients (and even many physicians) have never heard of prolotherapy and have a lot of questions about it. The following article will provide some history about the use of prolotherapy as a way to heal people from their chronic pain. To learn even more, call Dr. Edwards at Revolution Health today at 918-935-3636.

Prolotherapy was started by Dr George Hackett over 80 years ago. Dr. Hackett was a trauma surgeon in Ohio and realized that injecting the proliferant solution into the affected areas increased the thickness of ligaments, so he set out to study the effects. He started studying and injecting patients in an attempt to cure them of 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 form of alternative medicine in Tulsa by the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Integrative Pain Medicine.

Dr. C. Everett Koop, a former US Surgeon General, was a huge supporter of prolotherapy. Prolotherapy’s effectiveness is dependent on eliminating several different traditional ways of treating chronic pain, such as the use of anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, smoking, and applying ice. These are all interventions that will 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. Most physicians in traditional Western medicine haven’t heard of this form of Tulsa alternative medicine either.

Dr. Koop believed that many medical professionals are skeptical because prolotherapy seems to be too easy of a solution to the many complicated problems that afflict the human body. Especially those conditions that have been notoriously difficult to treat. Proliferant solutions are inexpensive, natural, and easy to mix and maintain. Because of this, no pharmaceutical company wants to market them, because there is no money in developing the substances. In a country where we are given so many reasons to be skeptical of the medical system, it’s understandable to be skeptical. 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 only from sound scientific research.

Dr. Edwards has yet to find one patient who has received the benefits of prolotherapy that walked away from it with doubts of its effectiveness. We will give you all the information that you need in order to make an informed decision on whether you’d like to follow through with prolotherapy treatments. Prolotherapy is an excellent procedure that can drastically improve your quality of life. Prolotherapy has drastically changed many of our patients lives, and we know that it can help you have a better quality of life as well. Call Revolution Health today at 918-935-3636, and we’ll discuss if prolotherapy is the right treatment for you.
