May 24, 2016

Pain ManagementMany Americans live with pain every day. It  is important to stay active however, that activity can lead to injuries and/or wear and tear on joints and tissue. Common causes of  pain may be –

  • Sports Injury
  • Athletics
  • Hiking
  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Bad Shoes

 

What many people don’t realize is that you don’t have to live with the pain. There is something you can do about it and it is called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy is a treatment that is also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT). Prolotherapy is an injection procedure used to strengthen tendons and ligaments that are painful or weakened from injury. Stem cells are gathered from the patient’s own body to treat injury or degenerative conditions. Prolotherapy includes Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is a process using the patient’s own growth factors extracted from a small sample of his or her blood. When injected into an injured area it can help trigger and drive the healing process. Prolotherapy is a popular and safe alternative to surgery or pain medications and is often used by professional athletes. Prolotherapy works by triggering a controlled inflammation that then stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms in order to lay down newer and stronger collagen cells and fibers, thus healing your injury and ridding you of the pain!

Typically, patients require anywhere from two to six regenerative injection therapy treatments.  Our doctors also suggest that each treatment be spaced three to six weeks apart in order to achieve the best results possible. There is very little pain, a quick recovery, and because only local anesthesia is used, there is almost no risk. Results last about two years.

Prolotherapy is excellent for men or women and can help with

  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Back & Neck Pain
  • sports injuries
  • Whiplash Injuries
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Partially Torn Tendons
  • Herniated Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Knee Injuries & Pain

 

If you want to find pain relief but want to avoid surgery and all the accompany rehabilitation and recovery, the Prolotherapy may be a good option for you. Many people are becoming increasingly wary of highly addictive opiods and pain killers as well. With Prolotherapy, you can find pain relief without becoming dependent on potentially dangerous medications. For more information on Prolotherapy schedule a consultation with us in order to receive the best and most appropriate treatment possible. To schedule your consultation, please book a consultation or call us at 480-907-3917 in order to get started on Prolotherapy!

What is Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) and is it right for me?

September 10, 2014

Causes of Severe Muscle and Joint Pain

In a culture where everyone is trying their hardest to stay in shape and constantly be at the top of their physical peak, having to constantly deal with tedious and painful sport and exercise injuries is a setback no one wants to face. Working out should be a rewarding process with unlimited benefits, so why suffer through so much pain for working so hard?

Traditional methods of dealing with pain:

When individuals suffer from pain caused by sport or exercise injuries, most people’s immediate reaction is to hit their nearest drug store and subdue their pain with over the counter products such as Advil or Tylenol. Others may try getting massages regularly or perhaps purchase new workout equipment that alleviates stress on joints. Even though many of these remedies produce temporary results for pain relief, many people overlook the simplest and most effective way to get rid of the pain.

Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) also known as Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy, is a service that DreamBody offers that produces long lasting relief from recurring pain due to sports injuries. It is a method of treatment that has proven to be effective since 1995 and is one of the safest and quickest answers to your long term pain problems.

Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT)/ Prolotherapy

Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy is a treatment that can relieve you of pain through the use of its ground-breaking technology. This type of treatment goes by several different names, but they all refer to the same process. Some of these names include:

• Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy
• Regenerative Injection Treatment
• RIT

How this process works consists of the doctors at DreamBody extracting Mesenchymal Stem Cells from your body and relocating them to the inflamed or damaged muscular tissue that has been causing you pain. These brilliant little cells are instantly able to target the damaged cells in your tissues and ligaments and quickly repair them, restoring them virtually back to 100 percent.

Since life in Arizona involves so much outdoor activity, many Arizonans suffer from this type of pain from doing every day exercises. Some of the most common causes of constant and severe muscle and joint pains include:

• Sport Injuries
• Muscle or ligament tears
• Hiking
• Running
• High impact exercises

Even though exercise is the primary cause of this type of pain, genetics as well as aging can cause an individual to seek RIT. Everyone’s cartilage and muscle tissues breakdown at different rates. Some people with certain genetics simply have tissue that does not stand the test of time in the same way that other people’s tissue might, therefore causing severe pain at early ages.

Aging also leads to the breakdown of cartilage and tissue, and might cause someone to seek Prolotherapy. The primary cause of elderly individuals seeking RIT include:

• Osteoarthritis
• Pain after knee replacement
• Pain after hip replacement

When elderly people undergo any of the medical issues listed above, it is inevitably followed by extreme pain that makes something as simple as walking a grueling undertaking. Many people who suffer from these painful issues may seek out chiropractic treatment, cortisone injections or Prolotherapy. However, if you have exhausted every possible option of ending this pain and nothing has given you relief, RIT will be able to end your discomfort permanently.

Due to the fact that so many of these causes are a part of our everyday life, there is no excuse for letting the pain stop you from enjoying the outdoors and keeping yourself healthy. By consulting the doctor’s at DreamBody, you will be one step closer to nipping this pain in the bud for good.

Why Choose Prolotherapy

Even though joint and muscle pain are common occurrences for many people, this pain may not always derive form the activities that are necessary for Prolotherapy treatments. Many people can alleviate their aches and pains by resorting to simple solutions such as stretching more often and switching to sturdier shoes that provide more support during physical activity.

Below are some of the questions you should ask yourself prior to deciding on RIT:

• Do I have common and severe joint or muscle pain?
• Is the pain keeping me from doing the things I love?
• Did this pain derive from an injury?
• Do I want to get rid of this pain quickly and permanently?

Your responses to these questions should help you navigate yourself to landing on the proper decision for you and your body. Even though Prolotherapy is a wonderful treatment for those who need it, a doctor would never recommend undergoing treatment for something that isn’t necessary.

How Prolotherapy Works

This non-invasive and quick treatment is something that we are proud to offer and receive constant positive feedback for. During the procedure, natural substances are injected directly into the damaged musculoskeletal tissues in order to trigger the production of growth factors. This launches a controlled inflammation that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanism to lay down new, strong collagen fibers and cells. Any joint or muscle can be treated with Prolotherapy and the process is the same regardless of what part of your body you want to target.

Once you decide to take the first step in receiving your initial Prolotherapy treatment, you will see results in as little as two weeks. This treatment requires most patients to receive anywhere from two to six separate Regenerative Injection Therapy treatments and doctors recommend that they be spaced approximately three weeks apart.

Even though this may seem like a long-term commitment, DreamBody’s convenient Scottsdale location makes the process that much easier to assist you in getting to a pain free lifestyle.

The Benefits

Once you go through the process of receiving your Prolotherapy treatments, you will never look back. Since this form of treatment has been approved by the FDA since 1995, many people have received this form of treatment with long lasting, positive results. You will be able to go about your life and participate in the activities that you love and keep you healthy. Even though the use of Stem Cells is a topic many individuals are still unsure of, with the usage of this particular form of Stem Cell replacement for nearly 20 years, we ensure our patients that this method of treatment is safe and beneficial for your health.

However, if you still aren’t sold on the idea of RIT, we encourage you to do some research for yourself! The FDA and StemCellMLM.com provide useful information for anyone who wants to know more about the Adult Stem Cell process and what some of the pros and cons may be.

How to Get Started

After taking the proper steps to insure the Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy is right for you, call DreamBody Medical Centers or go online to set up a consultation with one of our doctors. When they meet with you, they will discuss your symptoms and walk you through the process of pursuing this kind of treatment.

Fresh raspberries

Don’t allow joint pain or muscle soreness to stop you from participating in an active lifestyle. If you’re an athlete who enjoys all sports, or loves a hard workout at the gym, you should know that muscle soreness comes with the territory. This common nuisance is what causes many people to discontinue exercising or participating in sports. After waking up the next day to aches and pains, people try to mask the discomfort with over-the-counter medication that can have little to no affect. Well it’s time to put the pain medicine down and speed up your recovery after a tough workout, with food!

Consuming food enriched with protein and antioxidants reduces soreness and promotes your active lifestyle. These types of food not only aid in a faster recovery time, but help you lose weight faster by eating a healthier diet. What can be better than that?

Repair Muscle with Protein

Protein is an essential nutrient for anyone who is involved in an active lifestyle. Consuming the appropriate amount of protein after an intense workout helps soothe soreness in your body and heal damaged muscle fibers. Protein comes in a variety of forms because everyone exercises for a different reason. While some people want to build a large amount of muscle fast, their protein intake exceeds others who take it simply for muscle recovery. You can find out just how much protein you should consume depending on your lifestyle goal. Just enter your bodyweight into this protein calculator, and let the professionals from Bodybuilding.com tell you the recommended amount of protein to take daily.

Consuming a post workout meal is very important—whether you’re hungry or not. So make sure your meal contains a high amount of protein so your body can build muscle and reduce soreness. The quicker you eat your post workout meal, the better. The recommended time to consume protein after a workout is 30 to 45 minutes. So take your time to find a meal packed with protein that you and your body will enjoy.

Antioxidants have various anti-inflammatory compounds that help remove waste throughout the body. By removing waste produced during a workout, your body can repair tissue more effectively. Didn’t know fruit had more benefits than a decent dose of Vitamin D, did you? Well antioxidant fruit also increases a person’s metabolism enabling you to lose fat faster!

Antioxidant-rich Fruits

The key to consuming these fruits is to eat their concentrated form, especially on days you work out. Here are a list of fruit classified as antioxidants and can supply you with all the nutrition you need to repair muscle damage and smooth muscle soreness.

Berries

Anti- Aging Treatments Can Combat Aging

Aging is unavoidable but making you look and feel younger isn’t! At DreamBody, we offer treatments ranging in service type that can help both men and women look and
feel younger

aging problem
is, chances are we have a treatment or service to help.

Wrinkles & Skin:

We offer treatments that can help with wrinkles and with your faces fullness. If you have wrinkles that you want gone, Botox is always a viable option. One of the perks of
Botox
is that you will start to notice smoother and
wrinkle-free skin

Pain:

Joint and muscle pain
are two common results of aging. At DreamBody, we offer Prolotherapy treatments that can help to reduce and eliminate your pain by injecting
Prolotherapy
solutions into the area of discomfort. The injection causes a controlled inflammation in the area which then stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Anywhere from two to six Prolotherapy treatments can be required to eliminate your pain but patients tend to notice results in as little as two weeks after the first treatment takes place.

Weight:

Gaining weight is another common yet unfortunate result of aging. Cold laser liposuction and the HCG diet program are two ways in which you can shed the pounds.
>Cold laser liposuction
is a safe and advanced procedure in which the fat cells are permanently removed, all in the comfort of our medical center office and with very little recovery time. The
HCG
diet program allows patients to lose anywhere from 15-35 pounds in 20-40 days.

Another way to lose weight is through our advanced
hormone replacement therapy
.
HGH

Testosterone Therapy
help repair all the cells of the human body. It is truly the best age management drug, but should only be prescribed by an experienced, board certified age management medicine physician.

Deb Budnick, an RN from DreamBody Medical Centers in
Scottsdale, AZ chatted with Kristin Anderson from Fox News about some of the latest and weirdest beauty tricks on the market. Scotch tape, castor oil, placenta, dryer sheets and stem cells are the main components of the five weird beauty tricks that Deb talked about.

Scotch tape – this can be used to remove the
dead skin cells from your lips.

Castor oil – when applied to a q-tip, this can be used to help make your eyelashes grow longer and fuller.

Hask Placenta hair mask – a spray that can be found at Sally’s Beauty Supply helps your hair to grow longer and makes it extra shiny.

Dryer sheets – a common household item can actually be used on your hair to control your unwanted frizz.

Adult Stem Cell Facelift – the doctors at DreamBody Medical Centers take actual stem cells from fatty areas of the patient’s body such as the thighs or butt and inject them back into the patient’s face to give them an
Adult Stem Cell Facelift. Because the stem cells are coming from other parts of your body, you do not have to worry about any allergic or adverse reaction. The adult stem cell
facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed right in the Scottsdale office. The facelift can last for approximately two years which helps you save on the constant appointments of fillers.

All of these money saving, yet weird beauty tricks are a good reminder to look at your household items as
beauty enhancements.
