Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO is the creator of the Revolution Health and Wellness Clinic, and specializes in prolotherapy treatment and alternative medicine in Tulsa. Many people often wonder what they can expect when they choose prolotherapy to help treat and manage their pain. When you come into our Tulsa clinic, we will evaluate you and discuss the history of your pain and then perform a physical exam in order to determine all of the areas that could benefit from therapy. The location of your pain may not necessarily be the exact area that needs the prolotherapy treatment. Call Dr. Edwards at Revolution Health at 918-935-3636 today, and he’ll explain to you what you can expect from your prolotherapy treatment.
Many people often ask us why they are hurting in one place and we are injecting in another. For example, you may behaving pain in your shoulders, but that pain could be coming from your neck and you may not have a shoulder problem at all. When you come in, we will need to be able to examine the entire structures of your body. We recommend that you come dressed in comfortable athletic clothing. If your clothing gets in the way of a proper examination, you may be asked to put on a gown.
Once we have completed your examination, we will determine the extent of the therapy that you will need. Sometimes we can perform the first procedure at your first exam, and other times we may need to schedule a follow-up appointment for you to return for your therapy. We will explain to you exactly how prolotherapy works, what to expect, as well as the risks and benefits of the therapy. Prolotherapy has been proven to be the most cost effective alternative medicine in Tulsa. It will help to reduce pain, and improve function. In the long term, it is definitely more cost effective than medications, physical therapy and surgery.
We will put together an individualized treatment plan for your personal medical and personal needs in order to get the best results possible. We will discuss your medical conditions as well as the cost of the treatment plan and will agree on a plan that works best for you. We have recommendations that we tell our patients regarding what to do and what not to do before or after their first prolotherapy procedure. First, limit ice as much as possible. Also, do not use anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin, etc.
We recommend that our patients never smoke as it will get in the way of their healing. You should also work on improving your nutrition in order to aid your healing as well. We want our patients to know that prolotherapy injections can be painful. The pain from each injection lasts for only a couple of seconds, in comparison to a lifetime of chronic pain. After your treatment, you should do some type of movement and exercise, apply heat, use non-anti-inflammatory analgesics as needed, and get adequate sleep and proper nutrition. Prolotherapy has been proven as an alternative medicine in Tulsa to greatly decrease pain and increase quality of life.

At Revolution Health and Wellness, we offer a pain solution called Prolotherapy, which is a form of alternative medicine in Tulsa. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself. Read on to find out more.
Many 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 structures, which then stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing the damage. Prolotherapy initiates a powerful inflammatory response by stimulating the healing process. In other words, Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself.
The body heals itself through an intricate inflammatory process that consists of three phases. The first is inflammatory, which happens within the first 36 hours after an injury. The second phase is proliferative, which takes approximately 36 hours to 6 weeks. And the third phase is called remodeling, which occurs after 6 weeks to 18 months on average. Most patients will require 3 to 6 procedures scheduled about 3 to 4 weeks apart. Call Revolution Health and Wellness, and Dr. Edwards will get started on helping you to relieve your chronic pain today.
