When pain becomes too much to bear, people reach out to their physician for help, which usually consists of narcotic pain relievers, cortisone injections or joint replacement therapy. One of the biggest problems with these treatments is that they may not provide permanent results or address the underlying cause of the pain. Many times, joint pain results when an injury doesn’t heal properly. Old injuries can continue to cause pain for many years, possibly a lifetime. Sometimes joint components do not have an adequate blood supply, something that provides nutrients and oxygen needed for the body to repair itself from an injury.

Conventional methods may not work to permanently correct situations that cause joint pain. Alternative treatments are gaining attention in doctors’ offices as more patients are reporting success from using alternative therapies like Prolotherapy and Prolozone, which are exceptionally formulated to address the reason/cause behind joint pain.

Prolotherapy/Prolozone works to create a healing environment within and around the joint. Trained physicians inject natural substances into the injured joint capsule that cause blood and oxygen flow to increase in the joint, delivering what the body needs to strengthen and repair old and new injuries. Most patients report a noticeable decrease in pain within days. Because each patient will have different needs, they require different sets of treatments and have each regenerative joint injection customized for their specific needs.

Patients that were once told they would need major surgeries or live the rest of their lives on pain relievers have responded remarkably well to Prolozone and Prolotherapy. Joint pain sufferers have options. Highly trained professionals are available that may permanently relieve joint pain with natural therapies in just a few office visits. Just because the pain feels complex, the recovery doesn’t have to be.
