Prolotherapy for Headaches in Marysville

Prolotherapy for Headaches in Marysville

Thousands of individuals in the United States suffer from some type of headache on a daily basis. It is important to realize that there is a distinct difference between a “traditional” headache and a migraine headache. Just because head pain is severe, does not mean that it is a migraine. The good news is that there is an alternative solution to reducing or even eliminating pain from both types of headaches without anti-inflammatory medication. Prolotherapy for headaches in Marysville is one option that has demonstrated a great deal of success with pain management.

Headache causes are virtually limitless. Common sources include falls, whiplash, sinus inflammation, brain tumors, caffeine addiction, lack of sleep, poor posture, overuse of anti-inflammatory medication and tension. Ranging from mild to debilitating, headaches are responsible for the majority of sick days taken every year at work and at school from the very young to the very old.

Prolotherapy treatment involves injections of a solution that naturally stimulates irritation of soft tissues that automatically promote healing and relief from chronic pain. An anesthetic is often involved in the preparation. A series of injections is required for maximum benefit and the time frame and number of treatments vary according to the severity of the headaches and response to therapy.

Advantages of this treatment include alleviation of pain at its source and the lack of side effects. Being headache-free is a real possibility!
