At Revolution Health and Wellness, Dr. Edwards focuses on sports medicine, as well as on health and wellness as a preventative way to improve your health, lower your risk of injury, and decrease illness and disease. We believe that whenever possible, it’s much better to be proactive as opposed to reactive when it comes to your health. Dr. Edwards takes a holistic approach with his patients. He thrives on being able to help people improve their health when nothing else has been able to help, including people who suffer with Tulsa low back pain. 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 balanced nutrition, exercise, body composition, quitting smoking, reducing 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 an endless number severe medical problems, including Tulsa low back pain. At Revolution Health and Wellness, we use a pain therapy called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself. Read on to find out more.
Most musculoskeletal pains, including Tulsa low back pain, are caused by the relaxation of ligaments and/or tendons. This happens when there is damage to these areas and results in instability. When we use Prolotherapy, Dr. Edwards injects a “proliferant” solution into the damaged areas, which in turn stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing the damage. 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 Tulsa low back pain.

Revolution Health and Wellness is a clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was first started by Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO. Dr. Edwards practices holistic, functional medicine. He believes that nutrition is one of the cornerstones when it comes to ones health, and poor nutrition is one of the most common reasons for less than optimal health and disease, including Tulsa low back pain. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are not healthy due to our culture. Call Dr. Edwards at 918-935-3636 and he will help get you on the path to better health today.
Doctor Edwards is a Christian and believes that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, is his personal Lord and Savior. He actively prays for all of his patients and believes that Jesus died for everyone of every religion. Dr. Edwards hope that he will never make you feel uncomfortable by his faith, but he does pray that all of his patients will also come to know Jesus. Dr. Edwards strongly believes that God called him into this profession in order to help others find relief from pain and disease and to live happier lives.

There are so many diseases that can be attributed, at least in part, to poor nutrition, such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Chron’s disease, hyperlipidemia, digestive problems, stomach pains, osteoporosis, obesity, Thyroid problems, fatigue, depression, insomnia, anxiety, Tulsa low back pain, and many more. Proper nutrition is about so much more than portion control or eating the right amount; it’s about eating the proper kinds of foods. When we are eating the right kinds of food, then the quantity becomes much less important. Eating to optimize your health means you need to start thinking about your food as your fuel. This is the opposite thought process of the typical “American way” of using food for social gatherings, holidays, comfort, rewards, etc.
We have come to learn that gluten increases overall inflammation in the body, and is also the cause of most of the autoimmune conditions, such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis leading to Tulsa low back pain, Thyroid disorders, and many more. Many of our patients are very surprised to learn that many of these conditions can be adequately treated with nutrition alone. For conditions that can’t be completely treated alone with nutrition, we can at the very least accomplish a decrease in the dose of medications that are being used to currently treat the condition. New, lower doses will help to decrease the often unwanted side effects of medications. No matter what, improving your nutrition is a winning situation.
To achieve the best nutrition, we help our patients to establish their goals and then continually work towards them. You will also need to eat wholesome, natural foods whenever possible, and ideally try to get as much of this food locally as possible, like at local farmers markets. It’s also important to eat as much variety as possible, which will ensure a good intake of nutrients. We also recommend eliminating gluten altogether, and reduce, if not completely eliminate, grains as much as possible. Following these guidelines will get you started on the path to achieving optimal health through proper nutrition.
