At Advanced Healing Arts we use multiple styles of Injection Therapy. We use Acupoint Injection based on Acupuncture, Ashii and motor points. Trigger Point/Myofascial Injections for muscle and fascia. Epineural/Neural Prolotherapy/Peripheral Nerve Injections for nerve entrapment. Regeneration Injections based upon TCM Bone Pecking Techniques and modern Prolotherapy for ligaments and joints.
Acupoint/ Trigger Point Injections deal mainly with muscular, nerve and fascia pain, the type of pain that usually remains after a bad car accident in the neck, TMJ, shoulder region or in chronic low back pain. Onset of this type of pain is frequently traumatic and then continues to linger for long periods of time often years. Over time muscle/fascia tension and imbalance combined with decreased blood flow to the joint cause arthritic changes. The muscle applies abnormal forces to the joint and wear and tear sets in.
Epineural/Neural Prolotherapy uses small hypodermic needles at a shallow depth to treat peripheral nerve entrapments. Entrapments occur where the nerves pass through muscle or fascia. The peripheral nerves can become entrapped and a chronic constrictive injury (CCI) develops. The nerves can become enlarged/inflamed and start to generate pain. A simple solution of 5% Dextrose is used to remove the entrapment and allow the nerve to function normally again. Epineural is a very gentle treatment and even patients who are scared of needles can tolerate this treatment extremely well. Epineural is the treatment of choice for fibromyalgia, chronic pain syndromes such as lateral, posterior, anterior thigh, calf numbness, carpel tunnel, golfers/tennis elbow, stiff neck, tissue that has become extremely sensitive to cold and chronic low back pain that never resolves.
Regeneration/Prolotherapy Injections use dextrose or (PRP) platelet rich plasma. Prolotherapy is aimed at treating damaged ligaments, joints and cartilage. Prolotherapy is geared more towards improving/restoring joint function and stability.
Neural Therapy Injections are also used for treating autonomic dysfunction. Neural therapy is effective for treating scars, TMJ, pelvic pain, dental focus and infection.
Ozone/Acuzone/Prolozone Injections use ozone gas made from medical grade oxygen. Ozone is made by running medical grade oxygen through an ozone generator. Ozone injections are used to decrease inflammation and restore mitochondria function. Ozone kills bacteria and fungus in joints, vertebrae and vertebral discs. Ozone is an amazing treatment for herniated discs, knee, shoulder, hip and joint pain/inflammation. Ozone stimulates the regeneration of healthy tissue by restoring mitochondria function. Ozone reduces NADH build up and restores the NAD balance in the mitochondria, allowing for healthy cellular respiration in cells. Research is now showing that many cancers are caused by dysfunction of the mitochondria. Ozone can reverse some mitochondria dysfunctions.
Pain: Frequently we see people who have been suffering for as long as 20 years with no relief and within a few treatments they are pain free. Advanced Healing Arts treats the cause of your pain not the symptoms. To improve the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment we frequently use Diagnostic Ultrasound. Advanced Healing Arts is currently looking into adding a C-Arm Digital X-Ray to enable us to treat even more complex pain issues. Andrew, Ian and Jason are all highly trained in injection therapy.
