Cutting Edge Regenerative Injections
Regenerative Medicine Injections are on the forefront of modern medicine. The injections deliver natural healing products directly to the dysfunctional area to treat pain, injuries and impairments. They stimulate healing, improve tissue function, and potentially cure the underlying condition. Regenerative Medicine is not just pain management, it is the most powerful and natural way to help you heal. Outlined below are a variety of products and injection techniques that can be utilized during your healing journey.
Prolotherapy addresses ligament instability, often the root cause of many chronic pain conditions. It is performed as a series of dextrose injections (or other products) into loose and injured ligaments, tendons and joint capsules. Prolotherapy stimulates collagen growth that leads to improved tissue strength and stability. By providing joint and spinal stability, prolotherapy can eliminate pain, muscle spasms, weakness and nerve irritation.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a solution of concentrated platelets made from the patient’s own blood. Platelets are the first responders to any injury, they mobilize the immune system and start the healing process. At the injury site, the platelets become activated and burst open to release a variety of natural growth factors. These growth factors activate stem cells and other specialized cells to do the work of healing. They also decrease pain, improve blood flow and stimulate nerve regeneration. Thus PRP is the perfect product to help heal injured tendons & ligaments, arthritic joints, muscles and dysfunctional nerves.
Bone Marrow Stem Cells
Stem Cells are a line of cells that can become specialized into healing cells or tissue cells. They orchestrate the healing cascade and perform vital functions during the healing process. Stem cells can be withdrawn from the bone marrow and concentrated using a centrifuge. Bone Marrow Concentrate can be injected into arthritic and degenerative joints, torn tendons or around nerves to stimulate healing and decrease pain.
Nerve Injections & Hydrodissection
Regenerative products such as dextrose, PRP or stem cells can be injected around injured or sick nerves. This can improve nerve function, decrease pain and stimulate nerve healing. Hydrodissection comes from two words: “hydro” fluid and “dissect” to open up or separate. Thus Nerve Hydrodissection is a nonsurgical technique used to free up inflamed, sick and injured nerves allowing them to heal and improve in function. The injections are performed with a fine needle under careful ultrasound guidance along the course of the nerves. Regenerative Nerve Hydrodissection is combined with specific nerve physical therapy, energy modalities and nutritional support as a comprehensive neuropathy treatment.
