Regenerative injection therapies utilize non-surgical injection procedures for the permanent repair of damaged tendons, ligaments and joints, by enhancing the body’s natural cycle of repair. It merges cutting-edge technology with the body’s ability to heal itself. Our regenerative and biological treatments here at Hosmer Chiropractic Health include Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
INDICATIONS: Regenerative injections are an effective treatment for all manner of acute and chronic joint pain. Here is just a partial list:
When injected into the damaged area, a mild inflammatory response ensues, which triggers one’s natural healing cascade. This encourages the deposit of new, better organized collagen, strengthens ligaments, stabilizes joints, and reverses conditions associated with arthritic joints.
Prolotherapy is the most time-tested form of non-surgical injection procedures. It is effective for mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis and joint injuries. Prolotherapy involves injections of a mildly irritating solution into the painful area. The irritant, usually a dextrose-based solution, triggers the body’s natural healing resulting in joint tissue repair.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): In PRP therapy, a concentrated solution of the patient’s own platelets is injected into the area of pain or injury, delivering a powerful cocktail of growth factors, encouraging cartilage regeneration and ultimately relieves pain and related dysfunction.
