Pain management is the medical practice of alleviating pain to restore your quality of life. Pain stems from many internal and external sources and varies from sharp to dull.
At Doctors Clinic, your doctor finds the root cause of your pain and treats the source rather than masking the symptoms with medication.
Doctors Clinic offers customized pain management services to alleviate pain from a wide range of injuries and conditions, including herniated and bulging discs, scoliosis, and fibromyalgia. Some of the injuries they can help with include:
Whether you have joint pain, back pain, or a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia, your doctor at Doctors Clinic identifies the true root cause of your pain and creates a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain.
Doctors Clinic incorporates state-of-the-art regenerative medicine into your pain management program.
Stem cells are the cells your body uses to repair itself. They can turn into whatever type of cell your body needs. Stem cell therapy delivers a flood of these building blocks directly into the damaged tissue causing your pain.
Doctors Clinic uses stem cells derived from donated, healthy full-term umbilical cords. Umbilical cord stem cells contain high levels of hyaluronic acid and other essential factors such as collagen and proteoglycans and many peptide growth factors that support tissue repair.
Prolotherapy is a non-surgical ligament reconstruction that provides chronic joint pain relief. Your doctor delivers prolotherapy by injecting the medication into the damaged tissue causing your pain.
The injection creates localized inflammation in the weak area, which increases blood supply to the damaged tissue and delivers the nutrients and growth factors you need for the healing process.
Doctors Clinic also uses PRP prolotherapy, an innovative technique that combines your PRP serum with a traditional prolotherapy irritant to stimulate your body’s healing processes.
The doctors use PRP prolotherapy in more complicated cases, or if you want to speed up your healing process. PRP prolotherapy can take as little as two or three treatments. It has proven effective for all major joints, as well as heel pain and plantar fasciitis.
