We specialize in Prolotherapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) that helps strengthen and stabilize muscles and ligaments that directly affect joint function. This is a highly recommended procedure that can be effective post trauma, for over extending injuries or as a preventative measure.
Prolotherapy(Proliferation therapy) is a nonsurgical treatment, which stimulates targeted healing. It is known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction or regenerative injection therapy. This treatment works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissues.
Types of Prolotherapy include:
●Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Prolotherapy
●Fat (adipose) tissue which contain adult stem stromal cells also known as Biocellular Prolotherapy.
Platelets play an important role in soft tissue and wound healing. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is a portion of the patient’s blood with the highest concentration of platelets. PRP therapy uses this rich platelet portion of your blood to promote healing of ligaments, tendons, joints, muscles, and more. PRP Injections have been used since 1990’s in plastic surgery and maxillo-facial. This procedure has limited side effects because it uses the patient’s own blood.
PRP injection therapy is useful for:
●Sciatica/Sciatic nerve pain
●Carpal tunnel syndrome
