Pain Management

Pain Management in Utah

Pain Got You Down?

These are a few of the Pain Management techniques that we offer at the Cameron Wellness Center. These techniques, along with hydrotherapy, massage and IV Therapy can help you manage your chronic pain. Our practitioners assess you individually and find the right plan that’s tailor made just for you.

Prolotherapy (proliferative injection therapy)

Prolotherapy involves injecting an otherwise non-pharmacological and non-active irritant solution into the body, generally in the region of tendons or ligaments for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue and alleviating musculoskeletal pain.

A main source of pain is caused by laxity of ligaments and tendons. Prolotherapy strengthens and causes proliferation of tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissue.

PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy)

This technique uses blood with high levels of platelets containing growth factors for acceleration of healing and regeneration of connective tissue like cartilage.

Neural Prolotherapy

This technique is an injection close to subcutaneous (“under the skin”) nerves to restore their normal function through decreasing inflammation around the nerve. When inflammation occurs, nerves normally produce proteins that can be healing or damaging. In the case of chronic pain, these damaging proteins have been produced. These damaging proteins cause a condition called “neuropathic inflammation”. Neural Prolotherapy uses injection of dextrose in low concentration (5%) to reduce neuropathic inflammation.

Neural Therapy

 Neural Therapy is based on the theory that trauma can produce long-standing disturbances in the electrochemical function of tissues. Trauma can cause damage to nerves or a cluster of nerves called ganglion. Trauma to nerves can lead to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which can lead to various symptoms in the body like chronic pain, headaches, abdominal pain, diarrhea, chronic pain after child birth and much more. Injection of procaine around an identified dysfunctional nerve resets the nervous system in that area and eliminates the symptoms the patient is experiencing. It can be thought in a similar manner to resetting the heart with an electric shock when someone has a heart attack.

Neurocranial restructuring

Neuro Cranial Restructuring (NCR) is a manipulation process used to unwind the body into its original and optimal function bringing about relief from pain and promoting wellness. NCR utilizes careful analysis of the body’s proprioception (patterns of balance) to determine the precise areas of the skull that need to be released. The releasing of the skull bones allows the connective tissues and the meninges to release their residual tensions and move the bony structures incrementally back towards the body’s original design. This technique is effective for various conditions: chronic sinusitis, migraines and other headaches, neck pain, and TMJ syndrome.

Visceral manipulation

VM assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. VM increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture.
