Being a naturopath in Portland means defining ‘wellness’ as being healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually. We invite everyone in Portland, Oregon to share in our vision.
Prolotherapy & PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in Portland, Oregon
Terrain Wellness offers prolotherapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), two revolutionary treatments for non-surgical cartilage, ligament and tendon repair. Unlike Cortisone shots and NSAIDs like ibuprofen that actually cause damage to joints, Prolotherapy and PRP stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes. This makes Prolo and PRP a much safer and more sustainable option for those suffering from osteoarthritis or other serious joint injuries.
Our lead physician, Dr. Danielle Lockwood, has been accepted into a very competitive mentorship program on injection therapy for treating and reversing cartilage, tendons and ligament damage. The fact that she is both a doctor as well as an acupuncturist experienced in using needles painlessly makes her an ideal candidate for the program. We will begin scheduling prolotherapy and PRP patients in February, 2020.

IV Therapy in Portland, Oregon
Terrain Wellness proudly offers IV Therapy (Intravenous Nutritional Therapy) for established patients at our Portland, Oregon naturopathic medical clinic. Our doctors prescribe IV Therapy on a case-by-case basis after reviewing relevant health information with the patient.
Providing excellent medical care (including IV Therapy) that is custom-tailored for you and your nutritional needs means that we only offer IV as a treatment modality to patients when it is deemed medically beneficial. Prior to prescribing IV Nutritional Therapy, our doctors will review the patient’s current/past medications and allergies, screen for health conditions which may contraindicate IV Therapy and review lab tests as appropriate.
Our physicians’ vetting process with patients helps insure that our IV Nutrition, glutathione pushes, B-Complex, B-12 injections, methyl cobalamine (an activated form for patients with MTHFR genetic variants) and many other minerals are indicated for your health conditions and relevant to your specific wellness goals. Rather than having off-the-shelf products like the well-known Meyer’s Cocktail (a common IV for Cold & Flu recovery), we customize our IV treatments specifically to you.
Thank you to our wonderful patients.
