Athletes and Pain Management

Livv Natural Health has many modalities for the treatment and management of Pain. Pain is stimulated through our nervous system and fires rapid signals from our body to our brain. This signaling happens through a enzyme called Substance P, which most of our pain killers works on. Essential nutrients are degraded when the body is acutely or chronically inflamed = PAIN. Replenishing these nutrients is essential in the healing process and down-regulation of inflammatory proteins.

Prolotherapy: is a nonsurgical regenerative injection therapy for painful joints and muscles. It acts to stimulate the body's own healing power to heal and regenerate musculoskeletal tissues. Prolotherapy is a mixture of 50% dextrose solution combined with 0.9% normal saline and an anesthetic such as lidocaine. This formula is specially formulated to produce inflammation in a person’s affected joint. Yes, you read that correct, prolotherapy causes inflammation in the joint, which therefore, your body produces an inflammatory response to bring growth factors, cofactors to produce collagen and elastic fibers to the area to promote healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP): is a similar nonsurgical regenerative injection therapy like prolotherapy but uses the platelets of a patients blood to inject back into the damaged tissues. The platelets act as immune boosting cellular agents that help repair damaged tissues. The platelets are derived from your own blood cells so injecting into damaged joints improves healing and function by the means of increasing growth factors, increase in stem cell production, increase in elastic fibers, increase in collagen deposition, and enhance the healing properties of the human body. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber: is a medical oxygen unit that has a set and calculated atmospheric pressure that delivers 100% oxygen throughout the body. Oxygen is needed by each and every cell to perform optimally. In regards to pain management - hyperbaric oxygen chambers increase the healing processes by super-saturating soft tissues and extracellular spaces with oxygen to induce collagen deposition and clear up reactive oxidative species. 

In regards to sports performance studies have shown faster recovery times, performance enhancement, lower resting HR, increased fat burning, decreased lactic acid production, supersaturates tissues with oxygen, facilitates soft tissue healing, and perceived exertion levels are lower when compared to athletes not using hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
