The term regenerative medicine refers to an emerging field of research and clinical practice wherein treatments stimulate the regeneration of damaged cells and tissues. At Primary Spine & Rehab, we offer the regenerative medicine treatments of prolotherapy
and platelet-rich plasma
injections. These treatments work in different ways, but both of them focus your body’s healing attention on problem areas and result in enhanced tissue healing. The accelerated or more thorough healing available through regenerative medicine gives our patients an advantage in overcoming a wide range of problems with joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. If you suspect that regenerative medicine could give you an advantage in overcoming a painful condition, please contact us
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
We can enhance the natural healing of muscles and connective tissue by injecting concentrated growth factors spun down from your own blood. For some types of cases, this has been shown to create more pain relief than steroid injections while also doing more to promote meaningful healing.
[Also known as proliferation therapy or regenerative injection therapy] Tendons and ligaments tend to not regain their full integrity after injury. Prolotherapy causes tendons and ligaments to strengthen, especially at their bony attachments. Learn More
