Chronic Pain Q & A

Amaro Integrative Medicine

What causes chronic pain?

While it’s normal to feel an occasional ache or pain, chronic pain lasts for months or longer and interferes with your ability to work and live a happy life. Persistent pain can stem from a variety of factors, including injuries and diseases, such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.

Common types of chronic pain include:

  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pain

Chronic pain also occurs from damage in your nervous system as the result of injury or trauma.

What treatments are available for chronic pain?

The staff at Amaro Integrative Medicine offers two highly effective treatments for addressing the issues that cause chronic pain:

MLS Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light that offer anti-inflammatory, anti-swelling effects on painful tissue. Laser energy also goes into the deep tissues to stimulate your body’s natural reproduction and growth of healthy cells. As these cells grow, they repair damaged cells to decrease chronic pain due to injury or disease.

Prolozone therapy uses ozone gas to trigger your body’s natural ability to heal injured tissue. Dr. Amaro injects a combination of anti-inflammatory medications, vitamins, homeopathics, and ozone gas into areas where you suffer chronic pain from degenerative disease or an injury. As a result of treatment, your body begins to regenerate damaged tissue to provide long-term relief of pain.

Who is a good candidate for chronic pain therapies?

MLS Laser Therapy and Prolozone treatments may be ideal for you if you suffer from chronic pain that interferes with your life. Whether you have an age-related degenerative disease or you’re a young athlete dealing with chronic pain as the result of an injury, the staff at Amaro Integrative Medicine can help.

Dr. Amaro reviews your medical history, performs a physical examination, and discusses your treatment goals to ensure you’re a good candidate for this treatment. He can determine if MLS Laser Therapy or Prolozone treatments are the best options based on your level of pain and its location.
