The number of treatments required will depend on the individual circumstances. If you are seeking pain relief for an injury then a few treatments until it is healed will be enough. However, for chronic pain, you will need ongoing treatment to maintain the results.
No. The majority of procedures offered at Better Life Medical do not involve the use of opioids or other addictive substances. The exception would be Ketamine Infusions, but these are given under supervision using low dosage so there is no risk of addiction.
Stem Cell treatment and PRP therapy is non-invasive and is not considered to be a painful procedure. There may be some mild pain and minor swelling at the injection site but this should not last long.
Most procedures do not have contraindications with traditional pain medications. However, you should discuss any medication you are taking with your provider in order to get the most accurate device. Many patients no longer feel the need to take pain medication after our treatments..
Ketamine Infusions and Myers Cocktail are administered intravenously under supervision. On average this takes around 40 mins, although your provider may adjust the flow if you experience any discomfort.
All of our procedures are done on an outpatient basis. You will usually be asked to remain at the clinic for a short period of time to make sure you are feeling okay following the procedure. In some cases, it may be advised that you have someone else drive you home but this will be made clear prior to the procedure.
