Shocking Truths About Traditional Pain Management

Read: Shocking Truths About Traditional Pain Management

Sprain your ankle. Tweak your knee. Stress out your back. Get hurt and most doctors will recommend you start with a RICE treatment plan – Rest + Ice + Compression + Elevation.

But what happens when the injury lingers and the pain persist? How do you deal with chronic pain?

Traditional Pain Management Solutions Simply Treat Symptoms

Injured Knee Causes Pain
After an injury, pain can keep you from performing your best and achieving your goals. This is especially true if your treatment plan only addresses your symptoms, rather than the cause of your discomfort.

In the moment, pain can often seem like the biggest issue. It’s also the easiest to treat because that’s what traditional doctors know how to treat. Over the centuries, mankind has focused on developing ways to mask pain. These include:

  • Numbing Cortisone Injections
  • Restricting Braces
  • Mind-Altering Painkillers
  • Toxic Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
  • Invasive Surgery

These traditional treatment plans can be addicting. Individuals who take high levels of painkillers often have trouble giving them up. Braces restrict your body’s natural movement, forcing you to compensate in ways your muscles, ligaments, and bone structure aren’t designed for. Invasive surgery has no guarantee of a positive outcome. In short, traditional pain management solutions can definitely make you feel better in the now – but don’t offer a long-term solution.

Masking Pain Puts You at Risk of Additional Injury

Sprained Ankle
Pain tells our body when to stop or slow down so that we don't get injured further. When you mask that pain, you mask that signal.

Our body experiences pain for a reason. It’s what tells you to stop when you’re hurting yourself. Take away that pain and suddenly can push your body further than it should go. This can lead to increased injuries.

Luckily, our bodies are designed to do just that. We’re built with the ability to re-grow muscles, ligaments, and even bones. The trick is stimulating that growth. Prolotherapy helps trigger your body’s natural healing process.Surgery-Free Knee Pain Relief
