There is a better way
Are you looking for a more natural way to relieve your muscle and joint pain? Are you dealing with pain from osteoarthritis, an injury or overuse? Opioid medications can be a risky long-term treatment for people with chronic pain. The possibility of addiction, constipation and reduced mental clarity make opioids an undesirable long-term treatment for the majority of people.

Healing from within
Injection therapies such as Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich-Plasma, Ozone and Biologic Allograft are proving their worth in relieving pain due to many different causes.

All of these treatments stimulate the body’s own healing response. The immune system is activated to rebuild stronger ligaments and connective tissues. Toxic metabolites from cell waste are more easily removed from the area as well. In some cases, especially with the Biologic Allograft injections, patients are able to regenerate cartilage.

Dextrose (a simple sugar solution) injections are effective at relieving nerve pain and procaine injections (an anesthetic) are used for joint pain to help reset your neural signals.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP)
The patient’s blood is spun down in a centrifuge and the plasma, platelets and growth factors from the blood are injected around the patient’s painful areas. This promotes healing in the area.

Ozone injections reduce inflammation and help to break up fibrotic scar tissue.

Biologic Allograft:
This injectable solution is full of very potent cytokines and growth factors to stimulate regeneration of cells in the patient’s areas of concern. This is our most powerful injection therapy, and it provides the most impressive results.

Combination Therapies:
Our physicians can also provide treatments in which the patient is able to receive combinations of different types of injections solutions at the same clinic visit. For example, Prolotherapy, Ozone and PRP can be injected during the same visit for added benefit to the patient.

Simple, Quick Procedures:
All of these injection therapies can be done during a simple clinic visit, and you can go home the same day with very minimal activity restrictions.

Our physicians are available for free 15-minute consultations to determine which treatment options will be best for you. Please bring any medical records and prior imaging results that you have to your initial visit if possible.
