TIMC is seeing our patients obtain outstanding results with our new offering called neuroprolotherapy, which we refer to as MIT (for mannitol injection therapy). Mannitol, a sugar solution, is injected into the space below the skin, but above the muscle. During a typical session, multiple micro-injections are given in the area of pain with a tiny 30 gauge needle. The solution is nearly painless and because it is washed out of the body naturally within 24 hours, the protocol is safe for use with diabetics. Patients are also assessed structurally and aligned using osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation, a component that is almost always overlooked by allopathic pain management.
For most types of pain, relief is felt immediately. The pain often returns within a few days, but will be less intense then it was before the first set of injections. Long lasting relief usually requires a series sessions, commonly 3-6, for knee pain and headaches, and up to 12 for very severe, pain of long standing.
That said, many patients are experiencing complete pain relief from just one session and the results can only be described as “medical miracles.” Below is one of several testimonials we have already added to our website:
My husband has had chronic knee pain for many years following numerous injuries to his legs that started in his 20s during his dirt bike racing days. It culminated about 15 years ago when he was standing on a chair to change the battery of a smoke alarm. The chair tipped over and he landed hard on both knees. Subsequently, he underwent an ACL repair to the right knee, and has had numerous courses of Synvisc injections over the years, most recently last month. Sometimes the Synvisc worked and sometimes it did not. On a daily basis, he has rated his pain around an 8 and described walking as exquisitely painful. He has taken multiple doses of NSAIDs every single day for all these years.
He made an appointment to see Dr. Tenpenny for mannitol injections, which were given to both knees. It was miraculous. Upon entering her office, his pain level was rated at 8 (out of 10) and immediately following the injections, he said his pain was only at 1… and it is still at 1 the morning after the shots. His range of motion has also improved, as has his disposition!
BTW, he spent the entire morning (the day after the injections) working on our son’s car and only went in the house because it was so hot outside, not due to pain. I asked him how his knees were doing and he said he had “no complaints”. AMAZING! Thank you so much! ~ Maryanne and Gary C., Berea Ohio.
I haven’t had this much fun in healthcare in 20 years. It is so rewarding to see patients with years of long standing chronic pain leave the office with immediate relief. MIT is an entirely new approach to pain and the results really are simply “amazing.”
