As we age, trauma from injuries accumulates in the connective
tissue of our bodies, specifically, the ligaments, tendons and joints.
As one joint becomes injured it affects the surrounding joints and then
multiple joints frequently become involved. A good way to think about
the joints is like the tires on a car, tires need to be rotated, checked
for air, and replaced when they get worn down. This is exactly what
happens to our joints. The goal with prolozone therapy is to keep the
joint functioning as long as possible without having to replace it. In
this example, we are working with the healing ability of the body to get
as much mileage out of the joint as possible.
we age declining hormone levels can exacerbate the damaged areas, due to
a decrease in muscle mass and less elasticity inside the joint. This
places additional stress on the joints causing pain syndromes that
reflect a lifetime of repeated injury and internal joint breakdown.
a joint is injured, ligaments become over stretched and loose. In an
effort for the body to maintain function, muscles become tight and go
into overwork or spasm.
Low back Pain:
Low back pain is often caused by repetitive strain of the
ligaments of the lumbar spine and the sacroiliac joint; this is one of
the most common injuries that people sustain. An unstable sacroiliac
joint affects the entire spine and aggravates most back pain including
sciatica. Prolozone is extremely effective at healing back pain caused
by sacroiliac injuries.
There are two main areas that require assessment in low back pain and both may be involved.
1) Sacroiliac ligaments are the most frequent cause of
unresolved chronic low back pain in patients. Prolozone is very
effective is stabilizing low back pain from the sacroiliac ligaments.
2) Lumbar spine and disk injuries. These require careful assessment as pain may be from several areas.
Note from Dr. P:
*Pain syndromes can be corrected with naturopathic medicine, proper hormone restoration, exercise and prolozone.
*Prolozone is effective at eliminating back pain, and healing injuries.
*Prolozone repairs the stretched and unstable ligaments and damaged connective tissue.
the ligament strength is restored, the muscles relax; this decreases
pain and increases range of motion. Then specific exercises need to be
performed to stabilize the joint.
Patients often have MRI's and
X-rays and we ask that you bring your reports to your visit. If you have
films or CD's bring them also. Reports indicate if spinal degeneration,
herniated disks, joint damage and arthritic changes are mild, moderate
or severe. We assess these carefully looking for the significant areas
that can be treated effectively.
