If you have been living with pain so long it’s hard to remember what your pain-free life was like, I’d like you to take a moment and put your imagination to work. Please close your eyes and see yourself living without pain. What would you be doing? Would you be dancing, playing sports, chasing the grandkids, climbing a mountain, hiking, or jumping out of bed raring to go and see what each day has in store for you?
I invite you to really get a clear picture of what one full day in your pain-free life will look like and feel like. If you can clearly imagine this, I’m here to tell you, it can happen. The technology exists, but you’re not going to find it in the traditional mainstream medical circles. You know, the ones you’ve been making the rounds to for years.
Rejuvenate Your Life
I used the word ‘rejuvenate’ in the title of this article. Now, let’s examine the word and why I use it. The word “rejuvenate” found in the Merriam-Webster dictionary is (1) to make young or youthful again: give new vigor to, and (2) to restore to an original or new state.
Regenerative medicine, which is what I practice, is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. In other words, regenerative medicine rejuvenates your life!
Another rejuvenating, non-surgical procedure I use in my medical practice is Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy). It is also known as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection and is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue. The original term used for this therapy was “sclerotherapy”, coined in the 1930’s when this treatment was discovered, and included both joint and vein injections. Today the term “prolotherapy” is used for joint, ligament and tendon injections, while “sclerotherapy” is used for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, hemorrhoids and other vascular abnormalities.
Prolotherapy is based on the fact that when ligaments or tendons (connective tissue) are stretched or torn, the joint they are holding destabilizes and can become painful. With its unique ability to directly address the cause of the instability, Prolotherapy can repair the weakened sites and produce new collagen tissue, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint. Once the joint is stabilized, pain usually resolves.
Traditional approaches with surgery have more risk and may fail to stabilize the joint and relieve pain. How many surgeries have you already had? I know people who have had multiple surgeries and the pain remains. Most people who live with pain are also on a regimen of anti-inflammatory or other pain relievers which only act temporarily – and the serious risks these medications offer cannot be ignored.
Therapies That Actually Work Are The Only Ones That Rejuvenate
The body is a self-healing system, and when you put your health in the hands of a medical professional who knows how to stimulate the healing rather than interfere with it, your body will heal. Your body will rejuvenate, sometimes almost completely.
