PAIN DISCOMFORT/ FOLOW UP

This is a follow up to a series of integrative treatments I had received for joint discomfort in my lower back, knees, wrist and elbow. Located in Sandy Springs, Georgia, the center is called Total Health Care Joint and Spine Centers. My treatments lasted from Oct- Feb, 3x per week. Many insurance plans are accepted. There may be similar homeopathic centers in your area. The treatments included chiropractic, physical therapy, Supartz injections and Zeel homeopathic injections. Supartz is the trade name for sodium hyaluronate a component of synovial fluid which acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints. The injections were made at the varying locations they were treating but were virtually painless because of a numbing spray that was applied before the injection. Synovial fluid decreases with age and trauma. Zeel is a combination of botanical substances to reduce pain, stiffness and inflammation in the joints. Please google both products for any adverse effects. The staff was excellent in their  knowledge and care. I also continue to take my chondroitin /glucosamine and a powdered form of collagen. My estimated decrease in discomfort is 30-40 percent.
