Non-surgical alternatives for natural healing.
Regenerative therapy is a safe and non-surgical alternative to treat a wide range of joint and musculoskeletal conditions like tendonitis, degenerative arthritis, and more. The treatments utilize your body’s natural healing ability to repair itself by providing injured areas with an injected boost of regenerative cells. We offer a variety of regenerative procedures:
- AmnioFix® Injectable
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
These are a safe, effective, powerful treatments which can result in restoration of function and pain relief without the need for more aggressive treatments like long-term medication or surgery.
AmnioFix® injectable is a composite amniotic tissue membrane that is processed to promote healing of damaged joints soft tissue and joints. Each allograft of amniotic membrane tissue contains powerful growth factors that promote cell growth, modulate inflammation, and help rebuild the collagen matrix of soft tissue in the joints, speeding up healing time. AmnioFix® contains naturally occurring agents and does not have the adverse reactions associated with steroidal injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma
What is it?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a revolutionary new treatment that can relieve pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. PRP treatment is a natural, non-surgical treatment
that involves the injection of healing compounds from a patient’s own blood directly into the problem area.
How is it done?
A small amount of blood is obtained from the patient and is placed into a filtration system that spins and separates the blood into many components. The Platelet-Rich-Plasma can then be collected and injected into the injured area of bone or soft tissue. This introduces a high concentration of growth factors, which stimulates the body’s natural repair process to increase healing, calm symptoms and decrease inflammation.
Advantages of PRP
PRP is derived from the patient’s own body which results in virtually no risk of allergy or rejection. It is much safer than cortisone injections and surgical interventions. The injections are performed under ultrasound or fluoroscopic guidance to ensure the proper administration of PRP to the exact location.
Prolotherapy is a natural treatment technique used for chronic myofascial pain, back pain, osteoarthritis, or sports injuries. It involves repeated injections of mildly irritating dextrose solution or other substances into the joint, tendon, or painful tissue in order to trigger a regenerative tissue response. It works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms to promote the proliferation of new collagen, which is the building block of ligaments and tendons. As these structures become thicker and stronger, pain subsides, range of motion returns, and cartilage degeneration slows down. Additional treatments repeat this process, allowing a gradual buildup of tissue to restore the original strength to the area.
