The Response of Traditional Medicine A standard practice of modern medicine is to inject steroids into the area of cartilage damage or to prescribe anti-inflammatory medications. However, in the long run, these treatments do more damage than good. Although cortisone shots and anti-inflammatory drugs have been shown to produce short-term pain benefit, both result in long-term loss of function and even more chronic pain by actually inhibiting the healing process of soft tissues and accelerating cartilage degeneration. Plus, long-term use of these drugs can lead to other sources of chronic pain, allergies and leaky gut syndrome. In other words, the problem with this treatment approach is that it does nothing to repair the deteriorated cartilage and, thus, does not alleviate the chronic pain that people with this condition experience.
Another, more recent, treatment approach involves the use of Synvisc, a synthetic derivative of hyaluronic acid, a normal component of joint fluid, which acts as a temporary, and very costly cushion. The obvious problem with this approach is that not only is it temporary, but it also does nothing to deal with the underlying cause of the problem – cartilage damage. And when all else fails, patients who experience chronic joint pain are usually referred to a surgeon. Unfortunately, surgery often makes the problem worse. Surgeons will use x-ray technology as a diagnostic tool, which does not always properly diagnose the pain source. Decisions to remove cartilage tissue will most commonly result in arthritis.
Chronic pain is most commonly due to tendon and ligament weakness or cartilage deterioration. The safest and most effective natural medicine treatment for repairing tendon, ligament and cartilage damage is Prolotherapy. In simple terms, Prolotherapy stimulates the body to repair painful areas. It does so by inducing a mild inflammatory reaction in the weakened ligaments and cartilage. Since the body heals by inflammation, Prolotherapy stimulates healing.
Prolotherapy is the only treatment found to stimulate cartilage repair and regeneration, as is shown by the X-rays.
Furthermore, Prolotherapy offers the most curative results in treating chronic pain. It effectively eliminates pain because it attacks the source: the fibro-osseous junction, an area rich in sensory nerves. What’s more, the tissue strengthening and pain relief stimulated by Prolotherapy is permanent!
