Neural Prolotherapy for Headaches
One of the most gratifying conditions that is effectively treated with Neural Prolotherapy (NPT) is headache. I have seen many patients that come into my Urgent Care clinic with debilitating headaches. The level of pain is typically 8-10 (with 10 being the “worst pain imaginable”). These patients come to the clinic in desperation because nothing else has helped. I used to give a shot of pain medication and something for nausea if it was needed. The patient still left with significant pain present which was disappointing.
Since I began treating these patients with NPT, I have not had a patient leave the clinic with their level of pain greater than 3 out of 10 and most are at zero or 1. It is not a guarantee that this treatment will extinguish your pain, but I’m certainly reassured by the results that I’ve seen.
As an example, my sister-in-law has suffered with headaches for the past 3 years. She had seen multiple physicians in her area and tried many different medications. Nothing helped. She even had a recent MRI of her brain and neck to see if any cause of the pain could be seen on these imaging studies. The tests were “negative” which is great news, but she cried stating “I wish I had a brain tumor or something so they could cut it out and make the pain go away.”
Knowing her history of headaches, I suggested that she enroll as a “demonstration patient” at a NPT conference near her home. The physician evaluated and treated her headache. Her level of pain that day was 8 out of 10. After the 30 minute treatment session, she was pain free for the first time in 3 years!
