Natural Pain Therapies

What are “natural” pain therapies?

”Natural” pain therapies- Prolotherapy, Neural Therapy, Acupuncture/Laser Therapy, Auricular Therapy and Cupping, stimulate the body to heal and recover from injuries and accidents, sprains and strains and other over-use and chronic pains. Rather than using medicines and procedures that cover the symptoms and/or treat the symptoms rather than the cause of the chronic pain, these therapies are aimed at restoring function of the cells and tissues so that they may lead to healing of the primary problem, rather than just the symptoms. As the body is able to restore normal cell function, micro-circulation and physiology, many chronic and acute pain syndromes are resolved, even when conventional therapies have often failed.

Through these natural therapeutics, Dr. Bryan Frank has helped many patients regain function and daily activities, whether routine daily tasks or high performance athletic competition.

Prolotherapy: Remodeling degenerative joints, Reconstructing Ligament & tendon laxity

Prolotherapy, also known as Proliferative Therapy, Sclerotherapy or Stimulated Ligament Repair (SLR), was developed by Dr. George S. Hackett, M.D. over 50 years ago. Critical to understanding healing from accidents and injuries and preventing chronic pain and disability, is recognizing that inflammation from injury can be good! Nature’s inflammatory response, if allowed to follow course, will lead to an influx of important cells, Growth Factors and tissue healing factors that will lead to greater integrity of injured ligaments & tendons and of degenerative joint surfaces.

Indications for Prolotherapy include sprains & strains, Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD) and osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, back & shoulders, Sacro-Iliac Syndrome, Osteitis Pubis, Trochanteric Bursitis, Temporo-Mandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ), “Tennis Elbow” (epicondylitis), Rotator Cuff Syndrome and A-C Shoulder Joint Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Chondromalacia Patellae, Osgood-Schlatter Syndrome, bunion deformity, tenosynovitis and more. Further, many chronic pains result from “ligamentous laxity”, where seemingly minor injuries have led to weakening of ligaments and tendons, resulting in shifting the load of support to muscles and soft tissues, often with associated chronic and debilitating pain.

Prolotherapy leads to enhanced healing and repair, increased collagen growth, cartilage remodeling, ligament and tendon strength and support. While Prolotherapy stimulates repair, arthritis risk is decreased and rehabilitation time and costs are typically dramatically reduced over other conventional therapies.

Neural Therapy: Commonly relieves Chronic Pain & promotes healing

Neural therapy was developed in Germany by Drs. Ferdinand and Walter Hüneke over 50 years ago and has led many patients with chronic pain and delayed healing to find hope and freedom from their pain and suffering.

Initially recognized by treating abnormal scars, Neural Therapy has expanded over the last 50 years to include treatment for many kinds of chronic pain and dysfunctions, including chronic back pain (upper or lower), failed back surgery syndrome, Headaches, abdominal/pelvic pains & “adhesions” pain, Post-Herpetic Neuralgia (Shingles pain), menstrual pains and dysfunction, slow wound healing, recurrent tonsillitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis & rhinitis, and more. Neural Therapy often “unlocks” chronic pain patterns that have failed many other conventional therapies.

Laser Therapy: Acupuncture without needles!

A leading expert in Medical Acupuncture Therapy in the United States and internationally for many years, Dr. Frank has used acupuncture to help many patients find relief from pain and dysfunction, through the gentle, yet profound, stimulation with acupuncture. Now, with the WeberLaser, patients may be treated without traditional needles, but with “needles of light”.  Therapy can be profound and lasting for many, even when conventional therapies have failed. Ask Dr. Frank if Laser Therapy may be a solution for you.

Cupping: Myofascial therapy from Acupuncture traditions

Often regarded as an Acupuncture-related technique, cupping has been practiced by many different cultures for treating myofascial (musculo-skeletal) pains and more. While relatively gentle in its application, Cupping may often lead a patient to recovery that has not been experienced with other conventional therapies.
