REGENERATIVE ORTHOPEDICS

Regenerative Orthopedic Services Offered

Trigger Point Injections (TPI) are used primarily to treat pain. This procedure involves inserting a small needle into a specific trigger point area and injecting an anesthetic into the affect area. This results in the reduction or elimination of pain. In essence, the trigger point (which causes the pain) is rendered inactive and the pain is alleviated.

Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy) also know as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body's healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue.

Visco-Supplements are both safe and effective and are often used to treat arthritis in the knee and other joints. Injections of visco-supplementation fluid have been shown to slow the wear and tear that is put on the joint. This reduces pain as well as improves functionality of the joint.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a non-toxic substance that accelerates healing. PRP is produced from the patient's own blood using a process called platelet enrichment activation. This non-surgical process allows the extraction of platelets from regular blood and their concentration to over 5 times normal. These concentrated platelets are then injected into the injured muscle or joints to promote healing. PRP can also be used as a treatment for hair growth and skin rejuvenation.

The process has been shown to be safe and effective in treating the following common conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip & spine

  • Rotator cuff strains & tears

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)

  • Pelvic pain & instability

  • Back & neck injures / pain

  • Tennis elbow

  • Tendonitis & ligament sprains

  • Chronic knee pain

  • Muscle pain

How does PRP work?

  • Blood is drawn from a patient into a test tube, and then placed in a centrifuge for a spin. 

  • Low gravitational force separates the plasma and platelets from the red and white blood cells. The increased concentration of the platelets is then combined with the remaining blood. 

  • PRP can be carefully injected into the injured area or inflamed tissue, or by preparing the PRP in a way that allows it to be stitched into torn tissues. 

Intra-Articular Injections are used to reduce inflammation and pain located in joint spaces; specifically conditions such as bursitis, tendinitis or osteoarthritis. Often containing corticosteroids or steroids, these injections can also be used to drain excessive fluid from the joint which may be a result of trauma.

Stem Cell Injections also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next chapter in organ transplantation and uses cells instead of donor organs, which are limited in supply.
