Joint Pain and Arthritis
Joint inflammation, AKA arthritis and pain, not only cost people financially but also detract from experiences living their life and doing what they love to do! Arthritis is often thought of as a result of getting older or genetics, but this isn't totally true. Osteoarthritis is the most common form, which is from wear and tear, overuse, and misuse of the joints.
According to the CDC, by 2030 an estimated 67 million people over 18 years old will be diagnosed with arthritis. It is also reported as an "incurable disease." At Source of Health, we believe that this process is reversible with a few key principles.
The first is to stop the process of degeneration. This is done by modifying some patients dietary intake of inflammatory foods and artificial "Food-Safe Products." Next is to nourish the body with important ingredients for building healthy joints. The last step is to kick-start the healing process.
Other factors can worsen or speed up the degeneration process of arthritis such as food intolerance, obesity, diabetes, and unhealthy digestive systems. We also offer complete diagnostic services to find these underlying causes to prevent arthritis from getting worse or returning.
Dr. Sorr has advanced training and clinical experience in regenerative injections such as Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), and Stem Cell Injections. These solutions, depending on complexity and severity of disease process, work with the body's natural healing systems to eliminate the source of the pain.
Important Information to Consider
Regenerative injection therapies have been researched and verified in tens of thousands of peer reviewed journal studies to regrow cartilage, meniscus, ligaments, and tendons. There is no other treatment in the conventional medical world that compares to the success of regenerative injections.
Don't be fooled by a conventional "pain management" clinics which suggest that this option is only for those individuals who have exhausted all other treatment options. This is simply not the case. The reason this misinformation is spread is because conventional options are covered by insurance.
Regenerative injections are currently considered "experimental" according to the FDA and insurance companies. The FDA is currently "evaluating" this therapy. Interestingly enough, however, prolotherapy has been used as a medical treatment since the 1930s, decades before the discovery of many antibiotics and other pharmaceutical drugs currently manufactured and sold to the public, all of which have potentially hazardous side effects. Comparatively, regenerative injections have a longer history of successful use in treatment than most conventional treatments that merely cover up, rather than resolve, pain.
