The United States is in desperate need of a health and wellness revolution. It is vital that we begin to move towards an approach that doesn’t recommend medications as the sole solution for any medical problem, but instead focuses on alternative medicine in Tulsa. Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO, wants you to understand the importance of his revolutionary approach to medicine. With this approach, we focus on weight, quitting smoking, nutrition, exercise, and pain management. Call Dr. Chad Edwards at Revolution Health and Wellness today and he will help you get started on your way to optimum health.

At Revolution Health, we are committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal health. Part of this process is ensuring that you have an ideal Body Mass Index (BMI), or weight. We will never get down on you or make you feel bad about yourself when it comes to your weight or BMI. However, we will most likely bring up your BMI on every visit. That’s how important it is. Being overweight or obese is a huge contributing factor to those suffering from joint pain.

Another important health issue that we help our patients with is quitting smoking. Smoking cigarettes, cigars, or pipes is the absolute worst thing that a person can do to themselves and others around them. Smoking is a huge contributor to a variety of health problems, and stopping smoking is the absolute best choice that you can make for your health. We know that smoking can be one of the hardest habits to quit, so we will help you in any way that we can to help you stop. If you are a smoker, quitting will be the first step to achieving better health.

A huge focus for optimal health is improving your nutrition and getting more exercise. We believe that proper nutrition is essential for achieving optimal health. Getting the proper nutrition can dramatically improve your health, so we place a large focus on helping you improve your nutrition. Getting exercise on a regular basis is probably the single most important thing that someone can do to improve their health. Everyone should be doing some sort of exercise on most days of the week. Your exercise program should contain both resistance training and cardiovascular exercise.

We also put a huge focus into pain management. If you have acute or chronic pain, including Tulsa low back pain, then we will locate the cause of your pain and come up with a treatment plan. It is a rare occasion that we can’t identify a treatable cause of your pain. It is just as rare that we will prescribe any sort of controlled substances to our patients on a regular basis. If you are looking to receive narcotics or other controlled substances for your pain, then we may not be the right clinic for you. If narcotics are part of your treatment plan, we make sure to have strict policies that will include re-assessing your pain and your need for continuing on narcotics.

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

A proper lifestyle includes nutrition, exercise, body composition, smoking cessation, lowering 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 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 these damaged areas, which in turn stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing damaged areas. Prolotherapy initiates a powerful inflammatory response by stimulating the healing cascade. 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 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.
