Acu-injections


Acu-injections are a safe and effective technique used in traditional Chinese Medicine to help reduce both pain and inflammation and to increase the healing time of most injuries. It has been used for many years in both China and Western Europe. In Europe, Doctors have used Homeopathic Medicine and local anaesthetics such as Procaine to naturally treat injuries in the body. In China Doctors have injected Chinese Herbs such as Fu Zi and Dan Shen Dang Gui to help with diseases such as Fibromyalgia and Heart Disease.

These Medicines are injected into muscles or joints by a very fine needle to relieve pain and inflammation. Injections are done at the site of pain, which is also usually the site of trauma to the body so it can produce immediate results and can be done safely for many treatments over a period of time.

This Natural Medicine technique is entirely safe! It is not cortisone or any harmful drug. Acu-injections are for the use of natural medicine with little if any side effects. You may feel a little light-headed after a treatment or need to rest for 15-20 minutes after the treatment so that it can start to work in the body. The results from a short series of treatments can be very long lasting, 
even in chronic conditions.

Acu-injections is great for back pain, disc injury, scar tissue, sciatica, neuralgia, shoulder pain, bursitis, tennis elbow, sports injuries, post surgical pain, sinusitis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, TMJ, and arthritis.

The ingredients that are commonly used are:

  • Procaine 1-2% – a local anaesthetic, which can last between 30-60 minutes, used to reduce pain and on a cellular level opens up cells to allow other medicines to be absorbed to promote the healing mechanism
  • Saline ​  electrolyte replenishment
  • Vitamin B 12used to help promote blood circulation at the site of the injury



Prolotherapy/Bone Pecking


Prolotherapy/Bone Pecking is also known as non-surgical ligament reconstruction, and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain.

What conditions are treated with Prolotherapy?

The treatment can be excellent for many different types of musculoskeletal pain, including arthritis, back pain, neck pain, Fibromyalgia, sports injuries, unresolved whiplash injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, ligaments and cartilage, degenerated or herniated discs, TMJ and sciatica.

What is Prolotherapy?

First, it is important to understand what the word prolotherapy itself means. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak. Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints. Ligaments can become weakened or stretched with injury and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Healing from this type of injury is frequently slow and incomplete. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve ending and 
therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose. Tendons are the name given to tissue which connects muscles to bones, and in the same manner tendons also may become injured and cause pain. Prolotherapy uses a variety of solutions, which are injected into the ligament or tendon where it attached to the bone. This causes a localized inflammation in these weak areas which then increases the blood supply and fl ow of nutrients and stimulates the tissue to repair itself.



OZONE THERAPY


Ozone therapy is a form of alternative medicine treatment that purports to increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone.  Ozone Therapy is a medical therapy that has been used worldwide for over 50 years with dramatic success and safety. In North America Ozone Therapy has not yet been fully recognized by the medical authorities, however if you review our ever growing list of Ozone Doctors, you will see that it is being adopted more and more by formally 'traditional' medical practitioners. It is clear that Ozone Therapy works, and it is becoming one of the most useful tools in medical clinics across America and around the World.


What does it do? To breifly summarize, ozone accomplishes these very important tasks in your body:

1/ Ozone is AntiAging (some of those AntiAging effects can be attributed to the following list of actions...)
2/ Ozone Increases Oxygenation of your Cells (it has been proven that cancer and disease grow in poorly oxygenated tissues in your body).
3/ Ozone Modulcates your Immune System (for those with a weakened immune system, Ozone will boost the immune system. For those with Auto-Immune Disorders, Ozone will modulate the immune system to help to stop it from attacking healthy human cells.)
4/ Ozone Increases Energy Production in your Cells (your cells need energy to be healthy; low energy levels mean that you and your cells will not be healthy and will age)
5/ Ozone Increases the Activity of your "Anti-Oxidant Enzyme Systems". This means ozone will reduce the oxidation levels of your body.
6/ Ozone Reduces the level of acidity of your body (never mind the Alkaline Water...use Ozone!)
7/ Ozone kills Bacteria, Viruses (and virtually all other disease causing organisms) on contact

I am finding great successs with treating Frozen Shoulders, Herniated Discs, Arthitic Knees and other Muscle Skelatal Problems.

Other Services I Specialize In


  • Biopuncture (homeopathic injections), Prolotherapy- is the use of extremely low dose injections of herbal preparation known as homeopathy applied to the areas of injury or acupressure reflex points to encourage healing of chronic or acute inflammation in the body. In the subtle and painless way, the body tissues can more easily recover from damage sustained through overuse or trauma.


  • B12 injections- Vitamin B12 is important for growth, cell reproduction, blood formation, and protein and tissue synthesis.

​​

  • Trigger Point Injections- will heal muscle fibers so that they return to a uniform pattern( ie get rid of that pain in your neck!). This is one of the most gentle, non-invasive ways of getting rid of chronic and acute pain.
