Regenerative Injection Therapy for Less Pain
Are your painful muscles or joints keeping you from doing the thinks you love?
Or are they affecting your sleep and interfering with your every day life? Regenerative Injection Therapy is a clinically proven therapy which helps repair injured muscles and joints, resulting in less pain and better function.
Regenerative Injection Therapy includes Prolotherapy, Trigger Point Injection Therapy and Neural Therapy.
When joint tissues are injured, the immune system is stimulated to repair the area, however, because ligaments and tendons generally have a poor blood supply, incomplete healing is common after an injury. This results in these strong, taut bands of connective tissue becoming relaxed and weak, which then becomes a source of chronic pain and weakness. The surrounding muscles are then affected as they become tense to support the dysfunctional joint.
The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple.
A substance is injected into the affected ligaments or tendons, which leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material that ligaments and tendons are made of. Prolotherapy can completely rehabilitate areas of pain and dysfunction and has a high success rate.
Neural therapy and trigger point injection therapy involves injections into scar tissue, acupuncture points, and muscular trigger points to relieve pain and dysfunction. It can be used to treat soft tissue injuries that occurred last week or many years ago.
Typical muscle and joint pains treated
Regenerative Injection Therapy can be used to treat painful joints and muscles including:
- Arthritic joints
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Lower back pain
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Knee ligament injuries
Treatments are usually every 3-4 weeks apart. They can be closer together if your injury is fairly recent and acute.
