Board Certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Assistant Professor, UCLA School Of Medicine
Many patients find pain treatment to be a personal and intimate process. It’s important that you know and trust your doctor in order to go into the prolotherapy experience with the best possible state of mind.
Dr. Marc Darrow is a Board Certified Physiatrist with a background of education in law and business, as well. While he works as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California at Los Angeles’ School of Medicine, his passion for ending suffering caused by pain led him to create the Darrow Sports and Wellness Institute, also in Los Angeles. Working here as medical director has allowed him to focus his practice on musculoskeletal injury, pain management, electro diagnosis, and sports related medicine and rehabilitations.
Dr. Darrow is unique because of his thorough approach. He calls this approach the Trinity of Healing because it focuses on three different aspects of the healing process. The first is the body, the obvious physical parts that have been damaged. This is what most doctors focus on solely, as this is the primary source of pain, but Dr. Darrow believes there is more to it than that.
Aside from focusing on the physical aspects of someone’s pain, Marc Darrow also addresses the mental aspects of pain. The mind is what lives inside the body and processes the pain it is enduring. It seems negligent to ignore such an important connection when creating a treatment plan. The third piece of the Trinity of Healing is the patient’s focus, or the way the patient views his or her experience. Dr. Darrow believes that there is something to gain from any experience, and sometimes it is necessary to remove ourselves from the suffering of physical consciousness in order to see the higher value inherent in a situation. It is an important part of the healing process to find meaning in your experience, as the body is more likely to repair what it understands and forgives.
Dr. Darrow’s approach has proven very successful over the years, as he has successfully treated thousands of people suffering from chronic pain. In fact, Dr. Darrow used to suffer from chronic pain himself, and he was even a prolotherapy skeptic. He was quickly swayed, however, by the regeneration he experienced from successful prolotherapy treatments. Now that Marc Darrow has fully recovered, he seeks to share his success by helping others who are in similar situations.
Dr. Darrow is a leading Prolotherapy specialist in Los Angeles, California. Dr. Darrow has been featured in NewsWeek, Men’s Health, ESPN, Muscle & Fitness and Golf Today for his unique approach to pain management using Prolotherapy.
