I believe pain is the Nature's way of letting us know there is a problem. Sometimes the cause of this pain is far from the actual painful area. This is called referred or ridicular pain, that is it radiates from another area. This pain causes us to seek pain relief. In seeking this relief we try pain medication, NSAIDs, cortisone injections, narcotics and surgery with mixed results. When we Mask the pain with painkillers we can make it worse in the long run by causing a deterioration of connective tissue such as ligaments or tendons.

Dextrose Prolotherapy is the golden key to treating pain and offering a more permanent treatment method that actually makes the injured area stronger and repairs the injury without the risks of surgery. The treatment gets you back to your sport faster. We have been treating pain with Acupuncture, combined with Prolotherapy, for about ten years now. And I am happy to say this treatment is the BEST NATURAL TREATMENT for pain I have seen. This combined with adjusting and stimulating the flow of energy through acupuncture, we stimulate the body's natural healing ability, relieve pain, maintain health and protect against disease.,
