Better than cortisone? Maybe, maybe not – the facts will surprise you.

How would you know if the treatment you get is the treatment you need? After all, the doctor simply said “You need a cortisone shot” – or a “steroid shot” – or a “corticosteroid.” (They’re all the same, that’s what usual treatment involves … or “the drugs.”)

Do you know the serious side effects that cortisone could have, changing your body permanently … and not for the best! Many times folks get repeated injections – those can “melt” your joints.

Here’s a scary fact: some people go in complaining of pain “in a joint” when it’s actually only bursitis, not your joint at all – and you can end up with joint injections, drugs, even joint operations unless the diagnosis is correctly made.

Understanding “Bursitis” is Easy
It’s just a little sac or bubble under your skin, over points or angles in a bone, designed to slip-n-slide just a little so that you can’t puncture a hole in your skin if you’re putting pressure on the area (sleeping, working, whatever).
“Bursitis” is the medical word for inflammation in the sac.

Cortisone? Maybe you don’t need it … doctors inject it because it reduces painful inflammation – that’s the chemical signal your body is creating to insist on having healing cells arrive to correct the injury you likely never knew you have.

Could there be anything better than what you’ve been told? The answer is a simple “yes”: there are several treatments that might be better for you.

Checklist you must consider:

  • Prolotherapy (Reconstructive Therapy), using a tiny needle to inject a natural irritant to “push” the healing and repair … we’ve done for almost 30 years
  • Prolozone (prolotherapy) with ozone, an almost painless injection used for dozens of years in Europe
  • Neural therapy, using a tiny needle to inject local anesthetic to correct damage inside
  • Stem cells (“biological assist”) – unique umbilical cord blood stem cell product, safely obtained after birth, with fresh, vibrant, effective cells and healing factors to direct your repair … we’ve done for several years

Let us help you through the confusing maze of diagnoses and treatments to select what is best to produce the result you want, so you can do what you want to do! Already been to surgery? Definitely call to review your options.
