PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP is a regenerative therapy that utilizes the patient's own blood to help regenerate damaged or degenerated tissues. The blood is processed into a solution that is rich in platelets, growth factors, and other cellular signaling molecules. This concentrated solution is then used on different areas of the body to help start the regeneration and healing process. Some of the services we offer with PRP are:
- Joint injections
- Hair Restoration
- Face Lift
- Erectile Dysfunction
Prolotherapy is a procedure where a natural irritant is injected into the soft tissue of an injured joint. The irritant causes a healing response in the joint and can reduce pain. Prolotherapy can aid in the regeneration of cartilage in osteoarthritis, repair of tears in tendons, and the strengthening or healing of torn or lax ligaments. This therapy works to reduce pain by reorganizing and regenerating damaged tissue through the body's natural healing response.
Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point injection is a simple procedure designed to relieve muscle pain caused by trigger points. Trigger points can form in muscles or connective tissue leading to pain. They can also irritate nerves leading to referred pain in other parts of the body. A small amount of anesthetic is injected into each trigger point helping to relieve the pain and relax the trigger point.
Manual therapy is a specialized form of therapy where the provider uses their hands to manipulate muscles and fascia to alleviate pain, release tight muscles, and break up scar tissue. Some different methods of manual therapy include myofascial release, massage, trigger point release, craniosacral therapy, and muscle energy stretching. Manual therapy also includes treatment such as cupping, dry needling, and taping.
The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a bundle of nerves located in the back of the nose that control face and head pain. We can block the nerve impulses by applying a local anesthetic to the bundle of nerves causing a reduction in pain. This is known as a sphenopalatine ganglion block. The Sphenocath is a specially designed catheter that allows us to deliver anesthetic directly to the SPG without the use of needles or harsh medicine. Some conditions relieved by the SPG block are headache pain, craniofacial pain, migraines, and trigeminal neuralgia.
