Regenerative Joint Injection Therapy

Regenerative Joint Injection Therapy (RIT) is a non-surgical treatment for acute and chronic pain.  RIT is a natural approach to accelerating the healing response and addressing musculoskeletal and orthopedic issues, whether from sports injuries, car accidents, or daily overuse.  Three common types of RIT, Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), and Amniotic Allograft Therapy, stimulate a controlled inflammatory response that triggers the body’s own healing mechanism.  Using ultrasound guidance, these injection therapies create the proliferation of new cells that provide the building blocks of ligaments and tendons, which ultimately strengthens the connective tissue and integrity of joints. RIT increases stem cell production, promotes new blood vessel growth, restoring connective tissue damage, bone regeneration, and wound healing. In addition to Prolotherapy, PRP, and Amniotic Allograft Therapy, there are other injection therapies used to treat pain, such as perineural therapy and myofascial trigger point injections.  Regenerative Injection Therapy commonly treats conditions including:

  • Low Back Pain and Sciatica
  • Joint Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Condromalacia Patella
  • Tennis Elbow

This therapy stimulates the regeneration of hair follicles, creates thicker and fuller hair, and ultimately resulting in a more youthful appearance. PRP Hair Restoration is ideal for men and women who are looking to improve hair growth and thickness.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of several therapies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and it has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Energy, or Qi, flows through a network of pathways in the body called Meridians. When the stressors of our modern society lead to disruption or blockages in the flow of Qi, we develop pain and disease. Acupuncture works by addressing specific acupressure points around the body using various methods, such as cupping, needles, and gua sha. Each acupuncture treatment is individualized to restore physical, mental, emotional, or energetic balance in the body. Conditions commonly treated with Acupuncture:

  • Chronic pain
  • Hypertension
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Common cold

 

Biotherapeutic Drainage

Biotherapeutic Drainage is a system of medicine that focuses on gently detoxing the body and supports balance within the organ systems.  The main organs that are responsible for eliminating wastes are the liver and digestive tract, skin, kidneys, and lungs.  Throughout life, our bodies become overburdened with toxins, whether it is stress overload, poor nutrition, or environmental chemicals.  This accumulation can lead to chronic disease.  By supporting the body’s natural mechanisms for elimination, there is a healthy exchange of nutrients and waste products within our cells.  This allows the organ systems to work more effectively, which leads to improved whole body functioning.  Some of the chronic conditions that benefit from Biotherapeutic Drainage are:  

  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • Insomnia
