Your MRI isn’t magical. It’s just a picture. You’re a dynamic complex system that has an amazing ability to adapt. A picture doesn’t tell the whole picture of why or where you are experiencing pain. Everyday in my clinic I get someone who is sold on the idea that their MRI describes their exact pain.
Sciatica is a type of nerve pain that can be very debilitating. If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from this condition, you know how frustrating and painful it can be. There are many treatments available for sciatica, but some people find that they don’t respond well to traditional treatments like physical therapy and cortisone injections. The good news is there’s a different option called dry needling for sciatica that is specifically designed to help treat pain, and can especially help sciatica.
You wouldn’t believe how many people with chronic headaches and migraines I see on a weekly basis who have been put through the ringer – they’ve usually traveled to Jacksonville to meet with a team of doctors at the Mayo Clinic. They’ve exhausted the laundry list of medications that have been thrown at them. They get botox injections every 3 months to try and calm their headaches and migraines. But still – they get those debilitating headaches regularly. So what’s missing? Why isn’t anything helping?

They’re bought every pair or orthotic shoes, tried night splints, and had multiple cortisone injections into their plantar fascia. And still their foot is killing them.Just last week I saw 3 new patients with this same story. Let’s dive in to the other causes of foot pain and what you can do for it!
Neural Prolotherapy (NPT has a new name Lyftogt Perinural Injection Treatment) is a simple and very effective treatment for pain. It uses injection of dextrose (a natural sugar molecule) near cutaneous nerves that extinguishes neurogenic pain and neurogenic inflammation. Perineural injection therapy (also called neural prolotherapy or Lyftogt perineural injection therapy) helps calm pain and reduce neurogenic inflammation almost immediately.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and keep it in place. These muscles and tendons help lift the arm and rotate it inwards and outwards. The shoulder is a super complex joint that has the most range of motion in the body, which inherently makes it
Ever throw your back out? Once it happens, it seems like you’re more prone to it happening again and again. You might get a year or 6 months until it happens again… but it will. And then it will happen more and more. The research shows that ~40% of low back pain cases come from

Steroid injections are generally just a bad idea. Especially when it comes to joint pain. They might help in the short term for 3 months if you’re lucky but long term they lead to further arthritis, degeneration and the need for joint replacement. Cortisone injections are actually toxic to our cells – the dose given
I am a big believer that dry needling is the most effective tool at reducing pain and restoring range of motion. And it’s not just temporary relief, results can and often are long lasting.
Prolozone (Ozone) Injections are the best alternative to expensive PRP & Stem Cell procedures. They work in the same way by stimulating your body’s own healing response.
