Chronic Pain Clinics

I have chronic head aches, back pains, and sciatica problems from a car accident in 1997. I have had to quit my work, am on disability and am have been trying to cure the ailments unsuccessfully. I have had spinal adjustments, physical therapy, trigger injections, epidurals, and am currently on hydrocodone, diazapam and Prozac. The anti-inflamatories cause nausea; aspirin does the same. I am currently trying to strengthen my hips, arms, stomach and shoulders. I hope this will relieve my pain enough that I can enjoy simple sports. I am hyper-mobile, or double jointed in most areas. This makes stabilization harder. My headaches are becoming worse. I am afraid that, after a year, the trigger injections and epidurals are wearing off. They did not cure me completely for even one year. I was told I had too many and there was nothing more they could do for me. I have been in denial of this disability, I have no choice but to face things now. It has been three years. $35,000 in medical bills. Is there any information you can give me?

You sound like an ideal candidate for prolotherapy. Read this article carefully:

I am skeptical.

I don't have time to convince you. I only use what works. Prolotherapy works. Two books: Prolo Your Pain Away and Pain, Pain, Go Away.
