Pain Management

Pain can come from many different sources and can be acute or chronic in nature. Our comprehensive pain management treatment approach addresses your specific cause of pain as well as addressing contributing factors such as diet, lifestyle and other medical conditions. We offer a Free MRI review for all prospective patients interested in our approach.

INJECTION THERAPIES

Stem Cells

Regenerative Injection Therapy

The future is here with Stem Cell therapy. The field of Regenerative Medicine has emerged quickly, especially in Pain Management as new research continues to rapidly advance. Clinical trials have repeatedly demonstrated the healing, regenerative properties and therapeutic potential of Stem Cell therapy. The process works by injecting Stem Cells mixed with growth factors into the site of pain or injury.  



Platelet Rich Plasma

Regenerative Injection Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a relatively new treatment for pain management and continues to be supported by new clinical research in orthopedic and sports medicine. The treatment involves taking a sample of the patients own blood and then extracting the platelets from the other components of the blood. Once the platelets are extracted and concentrated, they then can be injected back into the patient at their site of injury or pain.



Prolo Therapy

Regenerative Injection Therapy

Proliferative Therapy or more commonly called Prolo Therapy was the original regenerative injection therapy. The treatment involves injecting an irritant (Dextrose) into the joint, ligament, or tendon in order to re-stimulate the bodies natural inflammatory and healing mechanisms. This provides non-surgical joint reconstruction, connective tissue strengthening and increased functionality to the area being treated.

Benefits:

  • Repairs Ligaments, Tendons, Joints
  • Pain Relief
  • Safe and Effective
  • Non-Invasive
  • Non-Surgical
  • 3-6 Treatments

Trigger Point Injections

Injection Therapy

Myofascial Trigger Points are a localized hyperirritable and painful spots located in bands of skeletal muscles. They often have associated referral patterns that can cause additional signs and symptoms. They are commonly referred to as “muscle knots” and can develop after acute or chronic micro-trauma to the skeletal muscle fibers. Trigger Points are easily identified by a jump sign or strong pain on palpation of the area. Treatment provides immediate relief of pain and alleviates accompanying symptoms.

Benefits:

  • Instant Pain Relief
  • Non-Invasive
  • Non-Surgical
  • 1-2 Treatments

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet

This diet is based off the Mediterranean Diet with an extra emphasis on incorporating foods that decrease inflammation in the body. Inflammation does not always cause pain but can often exacerbate pain symptoms especially in chronic pain cases. This diet lays out a solid foundation in pain prevention as well as overall health.

Breakdown of The Anti-Inflammatory Diet:

  • Vegetables (4-5 servings per day)
  • Fruits (3-4 servings per day)
  • Whole Grains (3-4 per servings per day)
  • Beans / Legumes (1-2 servings per day)
  • Healthy Fats (5-7 servings per day)
  • Fish / Seafood (2-6 servings per week)
  • Lean Protein (Chicken, eggs, grass fed beef, 2-4 servings per week)
  • Herbs / Spices (unlimited amounts of mushrooms, garlic, onions, turmeric, ginger)
  • Green Tea (2-4 cups per day)
  • Red Wine (1-4 glasses per week)
  • Dark Chocolate (1-2 servings per week)

Personalized Supplements

Proper supplementation can be the turning point in pain relief.

Supplements prescribed for each individual case and condition that work on the mechanism causing the pain help shut down pain throughout the day.

Supplementation can also be of benefit in degenerative conditions by providing the right nutrients, co-factors, vitamins and minerals to slow progression down or begin the regenerative process.

Exercises help strengthen the entire body, reduce inflammation, increase functionality of daily activities, and prevent against injuries and chronic degeneration.
