If there was only one thing that Revolution Health and Wellness could do to improve the health of Americans, it would be to educate them on living a proper lifestyle.

A proper lifestyle includes proper nutrition, exercise, body composition, quitting smoking, stress reduction, and nutritional supplementation as needed. When we address each of these factors of a healthy lifestyle, we are guaranteeing the best health possible for each of our patients as well as the prevention of a littany of severe medical problems. At Revolution Health and Wellness, we offer a pain solution called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself. Read on to find out more.

Many musculoskeletal pains are caused by ligament and/or tendon relaxation. This happens when there is damage to these areas and the result is pain and instability. When we use Prolotherapy, Dr. Edwards injects a “proliferant” solution into these damaged areas, which then stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing 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 a complex 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, each 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 pain and get your life back.

Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO is the founder and owner of the Revolution Health and Wellness Clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and specializes in prolotherapy treatment as aa form of alternative medicine in Tulsa for pain conditions. Many people often ask what they should expect when they choose prolotherapy to help treat and manage their pain. When you come into our Tulsa clinic, we will evaluate and discuss the history of your pain and conduct a physical exam in order to determine 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 prolotherapy is and what you can expect from your treatment.

Many people often ask why they are hurting in one place and we are injecting in another. For example, you may be suffering from pain in your shoulder, but that pain could be coming from your neck and you may not even have a shoulder problem. When you come in, we will need to be able to easily examine the entire structures of the body. We recommend that you come dressed in athletic clothing. If your clothing makes it difficult to conduct a proper examination, then you will 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 come back for your therapy. We will explain to you exactly how prolotherapy works and what to expect, as well as the risks and benefits of the therapy. Prolotherapy has been proven to be the most cost effective way to reduce pain, and improve function and quality of life. In the long term, this form of alternative therapy in Tulsa is definitely cheaper than medications, physical therapy and surgery.

We will put together a custom treatment plan for your individual medical and personal needs in order to achieve the best results possible. We will discuss your medical conditions as well as the cost of the treatment and will agree on a plan that is the 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, you should limit ice as much as possible. Also, do not use anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin, etc.

We also recommend that our patients never smoke or quit as soon as possible as it will inhibit their healing. You should also strive for optimal nutrition in order to aid your healing as well. We want our patients to be prepared 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 to greatly decrease pain and increase mobility and quality of life.
