It may or may not surprise you to hear that 100 million Americans suffer from pain. This pain, including Tulsa low back pain, costs the US a whopping $600,000,000,000 per year. One hundred people in the US die every day from some type of drug overdose, and 60% of those overdoses are from prescription drugs. This country is in a prescription drug epidemic and it is only getting worse. Call Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO at Revolution Health and Wellness today at 918-935-3636, and he’ll tell you how you can get freedom from your pain without needing to rely on prescription drugs.
When it comes to managing and deciding how you want to treat your pain, you have one of two choices. The first is that you can go the route of traditional pain management. This means using traditional Western medical care where you will almost certainly be prescribed medications and may even have surgery recommended to you. You may already be at the point where this is your only option, or you may still be searching for options. Either way, it is important to understand that narcotic pain medications come with their own set of problems, such as dependence, addiction, overdose, abuse, decreased effects and side effects, and tolerance. We don’t say that prescription medications are always a bad idea, there are certainly some circumstances when this type of therapy is the best option.
At Revolution Health, we provide our patients with a natural way to approach their chronic pain,
including Tulsa low back pain. We have so many patients that come to see us that have tried everything to
relieve their pain with minimal to no results, particularly lasting relief. These same people also typically are having to deal with all of the unwanted side effects that come with many pain medications. Our goal is to find the source of your pain and then eliminate the pain from the source whenever possible. We pride ourselves on providing our patients with the most successful interventions that come with the lowest risk and at the lowest cost.
We provide a great option for pain relief called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy is a system that stimulates the body to heal itself, rather than sticking a bandage over the problem like prescription medications mostly do. Prolotherapy can help to alleviate your Tulsa low back pain and improve your function and quality of life. It comes with an extremely low risk to our patients and is also very cost effective. Prolotherapy has been around for nearly 100 years and can help heal the structures in the body that are causing your pain. Call us today at 918-935-3636 to see if Prolotherapy may be right for you.
Prolotherapy is a treatment for musculoskeletal pain that will help to increase your function and
most importantly will help you to get your life back. Prolotherapy stimulates the body’s own healing process in order to heal damaged tendons, ligaments and cartilage and to permanently erase the pains that this damage is causing. We don’t know of any other procedure that is capable of restoring these damaged structures. Prolotherapy is the injection of a ‘proliferant’ solution into the damaged areas. The solution is mildly irritating and stimulates the immune system to heal damage throughout the body. Prolotherapy starts a powerful inflammatory response throughout the body, which then stimulates healing throughout the damaged structures.

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 for pain conditions such as Tulsa low back pain. 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 such as Tulsa low back pain, and improve function and quality of life. In the long term, it 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 Tulsa low back pain, or other chronic pains. 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.
