Pain riddled or pain free? Which path will you pursue?

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.”)

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

Anti-inflammatory drugs have their own special side effects, including the prospect of serious bleeding and possibly liver or kidney damage.  Earlier ones even caused heart attack deaths.

None of these approaches actually “treat” your lower back pains

They are simply “bandaids” needed continuously or repeatedly, to cover your discomfort.  Some folks finally settle on one or more operations as their only hope.  Many people never realize that other simple options … which can help you actually heal and repair … are readily available, here and now.

 

Here’s a scary fact:

Some people complaining of pain “in my joints” don’t realize that it’s actually the inflammation causing the pain and often your joints can still be repaired rather than replaced.  Not knowing what is happening, you can end up with injections, daily drugs, even repeated operations unless the diagnosis is correctly made

Understanding joint pains or “joint arthritis” is easy:  you have strong rubber-like support tissues (ligaments) that hold your back bones together, so you can’t overextend and injure the slippery bone surfaces or your spinal nerves.  When an injury allows excess “play” or motion of your joints (even just a little), you can form “bone spurs,” which are designed to limit excess motion – but that’s where your injury is, where your pain is being generated.  The word “arthritis” simply means inflamed joint, and there are dozens of different causes.  Lower back pains often result from falls, injuries, or accidents that stretch your ligaments, resulting in lingering joint pains even years after the incident.

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.  Drugs?  Maybe you don’t need them.  Neck or back fusion surgery?  Maybe you don’t need them.

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 joint pain 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.
