Podcast 55: Alternative Therapy For Pain Relief: Prolotherapy and Ozone Therapy

larisa likver

If you suffer from knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, ankle pain, or other pain, prolotherapy and ozone therapy may be a possible treatment option for you. Today’s guest is  Dr. Larisa Likver, MD, a physiatrist with a sub-specialty in pain management. She provides her patients with prolotherapy which is the non-surgical reconstruction of tendons and ligaments. 

Most of the time, pain comes not from the joint itself, but from the supportive structures of the joints. Prolotherapy can help patients relieve pain via regaining the supportive structures of the joint. The regeneration of the joint as a unit allows the joint to function in the proper trajectory again. 

If you have pain, prolotherapy’s comprehensive treatment of muscle attachments, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood can help regardless of age. Listen in to learn more from Dr. Likver about physiatry, the root cause of pain, the importance of having inflammation, and the effectiveness of prolotherapy and ozone therapy.
