Pain Management

Dr. Michael Mason-Wood is a naturopathic doctor, licensed by the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta, who manages joint pain using prolotherapy and prolozone.

One of the most common reasons people seek medical advice is for the alleviation of chronic pain and a structured pain management solution. This pain includes joint, spinal, muscular, neural and tissue pain. Any form of trauma to the body including physical damage, infection, or toxicity leads to inflammation which is the body’s attempt to protect and heal itself. The purpose of inflammation is to prevent infection by eliminating foreign bodies, such as bacteria and viruses, and removing damaged tissue. Occasionally, inflammation becomes uncontrolled or the body responds in excess, therefore, the primary approach for pain management is the reduction of inflammation. This approach does not treat the initial cause of the inflammation, just masks the symptoms.Your pain is not the same as anyone else’s which is why you want don’t want a quick fix solution that is treated in the same way as everyone else’s? At Natural Terrain, we treat the underlying cause of your pain and develop a pain management solution specifically for you.

TREATMENT PROGRAMS

+ Prolozone Therapy

A non-surgical reconstructive treatment for ligament and joint damage. Prolozone uses

a proprietary mixture of ozone (O3) and oxygen (O2) at different strengths to stimulate blood flow to heal damaged areas.
+
+ Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)/Acupuncture

TCM and acupuncture have been used for more than 4,000 years, treating mental and chronic

illnesses, relieving pain and discomfort, and helping patients achieve mind-body balance.
+
+ Neural Therapy

An injection of local anesthetic (procaine or lidocaine), vitamins, chelating agents,

and various homeopathics (that are specific to the tissue being healed) that aid in re-polarizing the damaged neuron, halting it from incorrectly firing, leading to alleviation of pain.
+
+ Ozone Therapy

A therapeutic injection treatment used to treat and prevent a wide range of conditions.

Ozone (O3) is a gas made up of three oxygen molecules. Because of its extra oxygen molecule, ozone is able to neutralize free radicals in the body, leaving behind beneficial oxygen that stimulates the immune system.
+
+ Biopuncture

A natural therapy that involves the injection of diluted botanical and homeopathic

substances into areas of acute or chronic pain to stimulate the natural healing response of the body.
+
+ Theralase Laser Treatments

Energy supply in the form of light, which the body absorbs on a cellular level, transforming

it into chemical energy, which the body then uses to commence its own tissue repairs.
