Natural pain relief is the use of specialized medicines made by nature or the body itself that relieve pain by enhancing the inherent healing ability of the body. Dr. Hansen prescribes nutritional and herbal medicines along with the patient's own Platelet Derived Growth Factors that augment innate healing, overcome inflammation, and stimulate the regeneration of healthy new tissue to replace the damaged tissue that is the underlying cause of the pain.
Dr. Hansen offers a variety of natural pain relief therapies including nutritional and herbal medicines, Mesotherapy, which he learned in Paris, France, the use of bioidentical hormones, which he learned in Brussels, Belgium, and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy, which he learned in advanced training with the American Association of Anti-Aging Medicine.
Dr. Hansen believes that PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy is perhaps the most important discovery of modern medicine. PRP is the yellowish portion of the blood that is concentrated with platelets and growth factors that initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. It is obtained by drawing blood into a proprietary blood collection tube and then using a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells and isolate a concentrated amount of platelets. All PRP is not the same, and there are varying concentrations of platelets, WBCs, and RBCs depending on the technique. Recent studies have shown that the optimal platelet concentration appears to be a 3-6 fold concentration like those obtained by Dr. Hansen’s methods. More is not always better. The use of more highly concentrated platelet preparations appears to have unwanted or inhibitory influences on certain growth factors.
