Important Information to Consider

Regenerative Injection Therapies have been researched and verified in tens of thousands of peer reviewed journal studies to regrow cartilage, meniscus, ligaments, and tendons. There is no other treatment in the conventional medical world that compares to the success of Regenerative Injections.
Don’t be fooled by conventional “pain management” clinics which suggest that this option is only for those individuals who have exhausted all other treatment options. This is simply not the case. The reason this misinformation is spread is because conventional options are covered by insurance and some physicians may not be familiar with Regenerative Injection Therapies.
Regenerative Injections are currently considered “experimental” according to the FDA and insurance companies. The FDA is currently “evaluating” this therapy. Interestingly enough, however, prolotherapy has been used as a medical treatment since the 1930s, decades before the discovery of many antibiotics and other pharmaceutical drugs currently manufactured and sold to the public, all of which have potentially hazardous side effects. Comparatively, Regenerative Injections have a longer history of successful use in treatment than most conventional treatments that merely cover up, rather than resolve, pain.

Testimonials

"I went to see Dr. ACE, because I had two bulged thoracic disks that keep getting re-injured every year; With her expertise, knowledge and use of very targeted machines, she not only broke the re-injured cycle, but in addition she customized a nutritional and exercise plan to improve my overall well-being. So I highly recommend Dr. ACE and Regenerate Health Medical Center, for all your medical, sport and nutrition needs.” - Jorge

"Dr Ace is truly brilliant - she is kind and knows her stuff! Thank you Dr Ace!” - Angela

"I can not recommend Dr. ACE and Regenerate more highly. She is a compassionate, thoughtful, passionate doctor who thinks strategically and is using cutting edge technology and research to get her patients truly better. I have a host of health issues including a chronic injury in my right hand, wrist and shoulder that I have struggled with for years. I have seen a lot of orthos, PT's chiro's, acupuncturist, etc. and some have helped but no one has been able to really break the cycle of pain I deal with, especially when I try and exercise. Dr. ACE is so knowledgable and knew exactly what to ask, what to check for and what to do. She created a comprehensive plan including diet, supplement recommendations, prolotherapy, voltage therapy and now personal training. In a few short weeks, I have seen actual results including less pain, increased strength (which I didn't think was possible) and for once, I have hope that I can recover from these injuries that have plagued me and kept me from getting stronger. I could not more highly recommend her for any medical issue you are facing.” - Amy

"I have been seeing Dr. ACE since February 2016 and she has been extremely proactive in finding out about my health issues. Dr. ACE has found out more about my health in less than two months than my regular doctors have in decades. She is very educated and dedicated in her field and is like a CSI figuring out why I'm having the life limiting symptoms I have been experiencing. If you want to understand and know what's going on with your body instead of the regular route of being sent home with a bunch of preventative medications I highly recommend a visit to Dr. ACE!” - Caroline

“After 1 prolotherapy treatment my ankle pain is 50% better. I should have come to Dr. ACE years ago when my tendonitis started! I’ll be referring everyone I know to Dr. ACE.” - Clint
