Treatments

Pain management solutions include:

    • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

      • A patient’s own blood cells are spun down to isolate platelets, proteins, and growth factors. These are then injected to the affected joint or area of pain. PRP is shown to accelerate healing, support tendon/ligament attachments to stabilize joints, and decrease pain. In other words, PRP uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to rebuild joints and treat the cause of pain, rather than just masking the pain.

    • Prolotherapy

      • Prolotherapy is an injection of nutrients, homeopathics, and anesthetics aimed at regenerating joint tissue. Many patients find it to be more helpful and longer lasting than cortisone (steroid) injections. Prolotherapy is often combined with PRP or ozone (prolozone) injections for even better results.

    • Anti-inflammatory IV Therapies

      • Ozone IV therapy (Major Autohemotherapy) supports the cells’ utilization of oxygen, thereby decreasing pain and inflammation.  It is particularly useful in chronic conditions, and those that involve immune system dysfunction.

    • Acupuncture and Cupping

      • Chinese medicine techniques are used for pain relief. Acupuncture involves placing small needles along the meridians or energy channels of the body to improve circulation and decrease stagnation (pain). It is also therapeutic on an emotional level, as the process is very calming and relaxing. Cupping is the placement of glass suction cups on painful or spasmed muscles to help them release. It has become increasingly popular among athletes.

    • Massage and chiropractic

      • We work closely with other practitioners, including massage therapists and chiropractors. These modalities often contribute to furthering and maintaining patients’ healing and pain relief.
