Pain Management

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy uses your own immune cells to repair weakened tendons and ligaments. An average increase in the size of tendons and ligaments by 65%  has been observed. Prolotherapy has also been shown to increase strength by 40%. Tissue formed from Prolotherapy is strong, healthy, & flexible. As tendons and ligaments are repaired, nerves are no longer irritated, and the pain typically resolves. 

Prolotherapy involves injecting small amounts of natural substances (alongside anaesthetic to minimise pain), to the site of pain or an injury. The body’s natural repair mechanism gets stimulated which regenerates collagen or strengthens injured tissue surrounding injury.  Resulting in improved joint stability, enhanced function, and decreased or absence pain.

Prolotherapy is:

  • Non-surgical
  • Effective
  • Regenerative
  • A Natural Approach
  • Safer than many other medical interventions
  • Requires minimal/virtually no down-time
  • Longest successful track record of over 80 years of published studies

Over the 70+ years that Prolotherapy has been utilised, it has proven to be an effective Regenerative Medicine treatment for musculoskeletal pain.  It is a much more affordable treatment compared to Stem Cell Therapy despite being part of the same field of medicine.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), also referred to as The PRP Procedure or PRP Shots can help regenerate musculoskeletal system by utilising the growth factors of your own platelets. These growth factors can help promote regeneration of pain-producing tissue.

The PRP procedure involves taking your own blood, concentrating the platelet portion (with a centrifuge), before reintroducing it back into the damaged tissue, cartilage, or spine.

Medical Hypnosis

Once the root causes of pain have been eliminated, the residual memory of pain may persist. This memory can be cleansed with Medical Hypnosis.

Modifications of pain interpretation are possible by reprogramming the mind. Because the technology to accomplish this is so simple, it is often overlooked. This technology is called Medical Hypnosis. It can be remarkably effective once the root cause of the pain is optimally corrected.


Frequently asked.

WHY AM I IN PAIN? 

Pain is our body’s way of letting us know there is a problem. It is not something we should silence with medications and painkillers without identifying and correcting the underlying cause.  Following an injury, tendons and ligaments are often stretched and weakened.  

This creates poor circulation with a large nerve supply which become irritated resulting in pain. The poor circulation deprives the injured site of the necessary nutrients for appropriate healing. Unfortunately, exercise cannot strengthen weakened ligaments & tendons (unlike muscle), but Prolotherapy can. 

CAN I COMBINE TREATMENTS? 

Yes, a combination of Pain Management techniques is not only allowed but can accelerate your progress.

Book in a session with Dr Mitchell Bloom to identify what technique or combination of techniques would best help you achieve your goals.

Compassion, Gratitude and Forgiveness as subtle energy systems

Emotional or psychological Harmonics which help water structure most constructively into a symmetrical hexagon when it’s frozen are Compassion, Gratitude and Forgiveness.
It’s not accidental that the majority of the most important organic chemistry in our body is initially structured hexagonally from sugars for energy to nucleotides which build into DNA to basic hormones.
