Imagine Life Without Joint Pain

Chronic joint pain is very common in the United States, there are an estimated one in four Americans who suffer from arthritis and soft tissue tears and inflammation for which typical treatments include oral pain relievers and cortisone injections. These treatments can lead to temporary pain relief, but ultimately weaken the joint and result in worse long-term joint health. Regenerative joint injections are different. They serve to utilize the body’s innate healing mechanisms to repair and rebuild the joint resulting in lasting pain relief and stronger, tighter joints.

Prolotherapy and PRP are natural and effective treatments for chronic pain and arthritis.

Regenerative Injection Therapies, including Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), stimulate the body’s healing processes to strengthen and repair injured, painful joints and connective tissues. When ligaments or tendons are injured or stretched, this can lead to joint instability and pain. This instability in the joint can eventually lead to degeneration of the joint. Prolotherapy is used to address the root cause of joint instability by promoting repair and new collagen tissue production leading to increased stability in the joint, reduction in pain and increase in function.

and back to doing what they love.

Knee

The knee is the most common area that we treat at our clinic. We offer the best in regenerative options for knee pain and alternatives to surgery. The goal of prolotherapy of the knee is to address knee joint instability to improve joint function and reduce pain.

A meta-analysis of controlled trials of PRP for knee osteoarthritis reviewed results from 1,248 participants showed that PRP injections reduced knee pain and positive results remained at the 12 month follow-up period. This is good news for those looking for long term solutions for their knee pain.

Common symptoms of knee joint instability:

  • Knee pain
  • Crepitus (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Knee swelling
  • Decrease of knee mobility
  • Loss of muscle strength

Long term joint instability, when left untreated can lead to worsening destruction of joint movement which can lead to degenerative changes and osteoarthritis.

Common Conditions treated with Prolotherapy

  • Arthritis
  • Meniscal tears
  • Instability
  • Runner’s knee / patellafemeral syndrome
  • Chondomalacia patella
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Acute knee pain
  • Chronic knee pain

  • Ankle pain
  • Ankle swelling
  • Arch pain or cramping
  • Crepitus (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Loss of motion or inability to move properly
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Popping
  • Numbness in toes

Common ankle conditions treated with prolotherapy

  • Arthritis
  • Ankle instability
  • Sprained ankle

Elbow Pain

Get the right dx. Often elbow instability is the contributing symptoms that are misdiagnosed at carpel tunnel syndrome.

Common symptoms of elbow joint instability:

  • Elbow pain
  • Crepitus (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Loss of motion
  • Loss of muscle strength
  • Numbness in fingers

Common elbow conditions treated with prolotherapy

Common symptoms of
hip joint instability:

  • Hip pain while sitting or driving
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Unstable feeling or hip giving way
  • Hip pain or stiffness
  • Decrease in muscle strength
  • Muscle spasms
  • Referral pain to buttock or leg

Prolotherapy is an excellent option for alleviating chronic hip pain and eliminates the necessity for many hip surgeries.

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a highly mobile joint and is also one of the most unstable joints in the body. This can lead to many various chronic pain conditions.

Common symptoms of shoulder joint instability:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Crepitus with movement (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Loss of shoulder movement
  • Loss of shoulder strength

Common shoulder conditions treated with prolotherapy

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint
  • Labral tears

Wrist/Hand/Finger Pain

Most sources of pain in the hand, wrist and fingers at due to joint instability. Loose ligaments can be strengthened with Prolotherapy leading to reduction in pain levels.

The symptoms often persist until the root cause in the ligament laxity is addressed.

Common symptoms of hand and wrist joint instability:

  • Pain
  • Crepitus (grinding, creaking, cracking, crunching, or popping)
  • Loss of motion
  • Loss of muscle strength

Common conditions treated with Prolotherapy

  • Arthritis
  • Instability
  • Chronic hand or finger pain
  • Trigger finger
