Procedures such as Trigger Point Injections, Joint Injections, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are all available at our offices.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy stimulates healing, achieving great results for both old and new injuries. With this treatment, your own body can heal itself. You will have a few vials of blood drawn. The plasma and platelets are separated from the red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma is then extracted into a syringe with a proprietary growth and nerve factor activating agent. This solution is then injected into the injured area. Typically a series of 3 injections is performed.
Trigger Point & Joint Injections
Alleviating pain from trigger points is done by a medical doctor inserting a material via a needle into the affected area. Many patients with knots in their back that did not experience relief from chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture treatments have shared that trigger point injections finally brought them relief.
Hyalgan Knee Injections
HYALGAN® is a solution that contains a natural substance called hyaluronate. Hyaluronate is normally found in the fluid that lubricates and cushions your knee joint. HYALGAN® is injected into your knee to relieve pain and add cushion in the joint. HYALGAN® is a treatment option for people who do not get adequate pain relief from simple painkillers (like Tylenol® or Advil®) or from exercise and physical therapy. Hyalgan is a 5 injection regimen given at weekly intervals that provides long-lasting pain relief.
Unlike using steroids, prolotherapy creates a natural healing response of inflamation to occur. The technique reactivates the healing process by injecting a mildly irritating substance, a sugar solution along with lidocaine. The solution is injected into the injured area to stimulate a temporary low-grade inflammation. These are performed in a series of 3-6 injections, 1-2 weeks apart.
Annual Wellness Exams and Physical
It is always easier to stay well than get well. Regular annual physicals are performed and are often 100% covered by insurance to encourage prevention.
