Prolotherapy is another name for proliferation therapy. It’s also called natural injection therapy. The procedure itself has a long history. There are different types of Prolotherapy, but the results are phenomenal. Prolotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that injects a natural solution into a targeted area of the body that has been injured and is weak. Once it is injected, the natural injections for pain helps to stimulate the body’s healing process. It's cheaper and more successful than drugs and surgery.

    What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an effective therapeutic experience. During a therapy session, you sit within a sealed hyperbaric oxygen chamber capsule and breathe an air mixture comprised of 95% pure oxygen. This highly oxygenated air is better for you than the typical air composition outside. Most importantly, the air within a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is specifically formulated to be devoid of toxins or pollutants, including heavy metals and chemicals.
    During your hyperbaric oxygen therapy session, you can kick back, relax, and simply breathe freely as you would normally do. You have the option to watch media on a device or screen within the chamber, read a book, listen to music, or simply relax. High-quality hyperbaric chambers like these at Venturis Clinic will allow you to experience a serene, effective treatment.
    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is safe, effective, and supremely comfortable. Over time with this type of therapy, you'll feel as though you can breathe more easily plus experience a range of other beneficial effects that the Hyperbaric Chamber offers.

    How Does a Hyperbaric Chamber Work?

    A high-quality hyperbaric chamber works by increasing air pressure and boosting the amount of oxygen in a confined space. Most sessions have the air pressure increased to 2 to 3 times greater than normal air pressure. Furthermore, sealed hyperbaric chambers receive specially mixed air, oftentimes with higher-than-average oxygen content.
    By pressurizing the air, your lungs can gather and absorb far more oxygen than they normally can. In a matter of seconds, your body can absorb and carry that extra oxygen throughout the body.

    Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can provide numerous benefits to you and your body. However, you experience these benefits only if you enjoy your therapy in a fully sealed, well-designed hyperbaric chamber. Good hyperbaric chambers prevent outside air from getting in which is greatly appreciated and more effective during your therapy.

    Better Oxygen Absorption

    Starting off, hyperbaric oxygen therapy necessarily will give your lungs more oxygen to absorb. It is a vital part of the energy transformation process – we need oxygen to survive and can’t live long without it.
    By breathing in more concentrated oxygen, you directly improve your body's energy transformation processes and may experience a general feeling of health and relaxation. For example, your chest might feel lighter than before, or you might discover that your mind "clears up" or feels more focused.

    Benefits for Medical Conditions

    Your Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment may be designed around a plan of care specific to your injury or medical condition to make sure you receive the most benefits out of each session. With the help of HBOT, we can provide you with a variety of approaches to treat your acute or chronic injuries or medical conditions from the inside out.
    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment. Your tissues need oxygen to heal, so by increasing your body’s normal intake of oxygen, this allows your cells to better use the nutrients already within your blood.

    HBOT may help with

    Accelerating Recovery
    Decreasing Inflammation and Edema 
    Improving Cognitive Function
    Increasing Exercise Capacity
    Increasing Painless Exercise Capacity 
    Relieving Pain at Rest and With Activity 
    For acute injuries (injuries that occur within 3 months vs an injury that occurred a year ago that you are still experiencing symptoms from), HBOT can shorten your body’s inflammatory process and reduce pain. This helps Dr. Alvin Philipose target any underlying issues sooner and avoid further flare-ups of your injury. Typically, how you initially treat an injury can set the timeline for the rest of your recovery process, but by supplementing your treatment with HBOT in the early stages, your road to recovery can change significantly.
    When it comes to chronic injuries (injuries that occurred longer than 3 months ago and still experiencing symptoms from this injury), your treatment might consist largely of pain management. By supplementing your treatment with HBOT, you can “supercharge” your cells and provide them with additional nutrients. When giving your body tissues this advantage, Dr. Alvin Philipose can better address the underlying causes of your pain so that you can start to progress towards a longer-term n solution.
    Physiological improvement can be tricky to track, and sometimes it can be challenging to maintain consistency. Being consistent is key to making progress in your treatment and can help determine the trajectory of your overall recovery. With HBOT, any changes seen can be tracked and adjusted to compliment your chiropractic sessions in order to maintain consistent improvement.

    Other Medical Improvements

    That’s not all hyperbaric chambers can provide. For example, those experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning may benefit greatly from hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Their bodies need extra oxygen to recover quickly, and hyperbaric chambers can provide both the pure oxygen and the delivery method necessary for this therapy to succeed.
    Furthermore, the increased oxygen levels your blood receives may help your immune system fight off infections. Essentially, the more energy you give your body, the better it can perform all of its normal functions, including tissue regeneration and immune system functionality.


    On top of all that, high-pressure hyperbaric chambers can promote the detoxification of your blood and various tissues. Most people experience an increase in their heart rate and blood flow under the effects of a hyperbaric chamber. Remember, most hyperbaric chambers increase air pressure by 2 to 3 times what you are normally used to.
    When this occurs, your blood carries far more oxygen throughout your body tissues. This higher than average blood flow also carries waste products and toxins out more quickly. Those toxins can emerge from your sweat, your breath, or elsewhere.

    Does Hyperbaric Therapy Come with Side Effects?

    When you first experience hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you'll feel a little strange as the highly pressured air enters the chamber. It should be similar to what you experience when you fly in an airplane.
    Generally, hyperbaric chambers only carry the possibility of minimal risks, like temporary nearsightedness or low blood sugar.
    Some individuals experience decompression sickness, which is due to the change in atmospheric pressure, as well. However, hyperbaric medicine is generally safe - under the supervision of Venturis Clinic Health’s staff, you’ll be supported throughout your appointment.

    More specifically, prolotherapy may be right for you if you experience any of the following: Damaged or lost tissue, especially surrounding the joints.

    Why does prolotherapy hurt so much?

    A patient is generally sore for a couple of days after Prolotherapy. This is because the injections have to go through some muscles to get to the ligaments and tendons. To help the muscle soreness resolve itself sooner, dry needling and moist heat applied to the area is recommended.

    Is prolotherapy better than cortisone?

    Cortisone can cause tendon rupture, particularly of the achilles tendon. Prolotherapy is a proven orthopedic treatment to reduce pain and strengthen weakened joints without the negative side effects of cortisone.

Dr. Philipose custom tailors the injection, so the exact composition depends on your needs. These injections may include natural collagen, minerals, amino acids and other natural substances to accelerate healing compared to traditional prolotherapy.

    What does dry needling actually do?

    Dry needling treats muscle tissue, and its goal is to reduce pain, inactivate trigger points and restore function. It rarely is a standalone procedure. Rather, it often is part of a broader physical therapy approach incorporating other traditional physical therapy interventions into treatment.

    What is dry needling and does it hurt?

    We use very thin filament needles. The initial feeling of the needle entering through the skin is very minimal; much less than a vaccination or having blood drawn. Once the needle reaches the muscle, the twitch sensation feels more like a deep cramp and doesn't last long (15-30 seconds).

    How long does dry needling results last?

    After dry needling, experiencing some slight soreness is normal, and you will typically note an improvement in your symptoms within one to two days. How long the benefits will last will vary per individual. The first few treatments will usually have a short length of relief spanning over several days.

    How many sessions of dry needling do you need?

    If treatment zones are found and the correct muscle groups are targeted, sub-acute conditions will improve after three – four consecutive sessions, with chronic injuries requiring five – six consecutive needling sessions.

    Does dry needling remove knots?

    Dry needle therapy resolves muscle knots by inserting a very thin needle directly into the trigger point. The knot responds to the interruption and relaxes immediately. Most patients agree that dry needling doesn't hurt in the way that you might think!

    How deep do dry needles go?

    Superficial dry needling involves inserting a needle at a depth up to 10 mm or into the subcutaneous tissue and may be combined with manipulation of the needle while in situ.

    Does dry needling reduce inflammation?

    The micro tears caused by the needle prompts the body's natural defenses to get to work, bringing nutrient-rich blood to the site and boosting tissue repair. Dry needling also helps to dissipate inflammatory mediators, those substances that gather in an area of inflammation.

    Is dry needling good for arthritis?

    Dry needling is an effective treatment in reducing pain from osteoarthritis because it increases blood circulation around the joint, thereby providing natural relief.

    What exactly does a chiropractor do?

    A chiropractor is trained to make sure your body is functioning as optimally as possible by using spinal manipulations and other therapies to relieve pain in your joints and muscles. These spinal adjustments will increase blood flow and nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles that are experiencing pain. They are taught philosophically to find and treat the cause rather than just the symptoms.

    Is it healthy to go to the chiropractor?

    Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care are generally considered safe, effective treatments for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from acute or chronic conditions such as strains, arthritis or disc injuries.

    What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

    • Improves neck pain.
    • Reduces reliance on opioid pain relievers. 
    • Eases back pain.
    • Possible reduction of osteoarthritis symptoms. 
    • Eases headache symptoms. 
    • More affordable treatment for chronic back pain. 
    • High satisfaction. 
    • Reduces scoliosis symptoms.

    What are the cons of seeing a chiropractor?

    Spinal and joint manipulation has a chance to go wrong and may cause unwanted injuries. So it is important that you only have an appointment with an experienced chiropractor that performs the necessary examinations and diagnostics to ensure safe treatments. DO NOT ALLOW a physical therapist or any other untrained person try a manipulation especially without X-rays.

    When should you go to a chiropractor?

    Chiropractors are most sought after to treat neck and low back pain due to acute or chronic pain. If you experience back pain that lasts for more than a few days, consult a chiropractor for an assessment.

    What cracks when you see a chiropractor?

    During a back adjustment, your back undergoes quick, gentle stretching of the spinal facet joint, so you may hear a cracking or popping noise. This is caused by small pockets of air or bubbles, which are in the fluid that surrounds your joints.

    Why do chiropractors want you to keep coming back?

    Changing your posture, changing your spine's ability to move, changing your muscle health and structure take time. Months in fact. All muscles have memory and your body wants to go back to its old patterns instead of creating new healthy ones. That is why adjustments need to be repeated again and again

    Is chiropractic care is ineffective?

    Critics are skeptical mainly due to the fact that chiropractic care does not involve medications or any invasive surgeries. Some have associated this practice with some side effects and fatal complications in some cases resulting in death or stroke. It also goes against the medical philosophy of not prescribing medications. In recent years there has been a comparison that shows not only Chiropractic to be safe, but healthier and more successful than taking steroids and medications. There are also various techniques now that prevent any type of injuries due the gentleness of the adjustment.

    Why do some chiropractors crack and others don't?

    The noises you hear during chiropractic treatment depend on the technique used. For example, some techniques cause a cracking sound, and others don't, but both can be highly effective, depending on your needs. So, whether you hear an abundance of pops or none at all, you don't need to worry.
