COULD CONNECTIVE TISSUE BE THE SOURCE OF SOME, OR ALL, OF YOUR CURRENT PROBLEMS, DESPITE YOUR CURRENT ‘DIAGNOSIS’?
Prolotherapy teaches us some very important lessons about what is, and what is not, wrong with people who have neck, back, and joint pain. How? Because Prolotherapy basically increases tensile strength in each treated structure by adding collagen molecules, courtesy of the Connective Tissue Healing System. If you can completely resolve a patient’s pain with treatment of a certain set of structures, you can tell which structures were causing the pain, and you can be certain that the symptoms were somehow a function of the tensile strength of these particular structures.
How in the world could strengthening the ligaments stop back pain that a very respected Orthopedic Surgeon assured me was an indication for spinal fusion? And how can strengthening ligaments completely resolve a knee or hip problem that has been diagnosed as ‘arthritis’ or ‘bone on bone’? How could the spinal and pelvic ligaments be causing pain diagnosed to be from a ‘bulging disc’ or ‘sciatica’? Let’s just say that I stayed up nights thinking about that one, because there is NO explanation in the medical literature for such a relationship between pain, pathology, and treatment.….(just as there is no plausible explanation for why a ‘bulging disc’ or thinned cartilage would be able to cause pain) so I wrote such an explanation based on clinical observations made while treating my first fifteen hundred patients.
