Peter A. Fields, MD, DC is an expert lecturer on Regenerative Orthopedic therapies and is a sought after speaker for his medical knowledge as both a chiropractor and medical doctor. And in this video, Dr. Fields gives some insight into some of the problems people can encounter when taking too many anti-inflammatories. Check out this Interview with Dr. Fields on KCAL/CBS About the Dangers of Anti-Inflammatory Medicines.
Anti-inflammatories, such as Ibuprofen and Naproxen, can result in the eventual destruction of a joint, because they actually interfere with the healing process. Dr. Fields discusses this in greater detail in this video.
Prolotherapy, a regenerative therapy, is a non-surgical treatment for joint and spine pain. The treatments are a natural method of assisting the body to heal injured or weakened joints, ligaments, and tendons. They actually boost the body’s own healing abilities.
With Prolotherapy (also called Dextrose Prolotherapy), the weakened areas are injected with a solution that stimulates healthy, strong tissues. And as the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and vibrant, the pain is alleviated, and motion is restored.
Is a joint, ligament, or tendon is causing you pain or limited movement? Then Prolotherapy might be the right choice for you! Prolotherapy can help with arthritis, knee injuries, tendonitis (tennis elbow), hip dysfunction, bulging discs, lumbar or cervical spine instability, bursitis, ACL Tears, rotator cuff injuries and more.
