At Revolution Health and Wellness, we use a solution called prolotherapy. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself. Continue reading 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 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 need 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 pain today.

A Holistic Way to Cure Your Chronic Pain

Revolution Health and Wellness clinic in Tulsa was started by Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO. Dr. Edwards uses a form of alternative medicine in Tulsa 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 it. 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 discoered 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 started 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.

Dr. C. Everett Koop was a former US Surgeon General and was also a big supporter of prolotherapy. Prolotherapy can only be effective if traditional ways of treating chronic pain, such as the use of anti-inflammatory medications, steroids, smoking, and applying ice are cut out. 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 prolotherapy!

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 an easy to formulate form of alternative therapy in Tulsa. 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.
