Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP
Autologous PRP is made from a natural component of each patient’s own blood and has been used for decades to aid in the quicker recovery following certain surgical and cosmetic procedures. The main components of this solution are platelets, tissue growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, and fibrin matrix. Because it is so concentrated, PRP acts as a potent tissue growth stimulant, turning on the natural process of tissue repair and healing. Studies show that PRP causes the production of new collagen and cartilage at the site of the injection, which can resurface the joint and strengthen injured ligaments and tendons. The new collagen is naturally incorporated directly into your existing ligaments, making them stronger and more elastic. Cartilage growth is promoted on joint surfaces.
Trigger Point Therapy
Relieves acute muscle spasms and tenderness. Used with tension and migraine headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain.
Neural-Fascial injections restore the nerves natural delivery of neural-peptides to injured tissue. Used with acute and chronic conditions, such as acute pain, causalgia, neuropathy and chronic neuralgia, Neural-fascial injections restore function in the unmyelinated nerves which regulate healing and repair. Without proper delivery of neural-peptides, tissue repair is inhibited and chronic pain and dysfunction result.

Also known as Low Level Light Therapy, it is a completely painless and non-invasive method for treating a variety of conditions where there is pain and inflammation. When these specific frequencies of laser light are absorbed by the body, it stimulates blood flow to the area being treated and increases the energy production of those cells. In technical terms, a photoreduction of Cytochrome c oxidase takes place, thereby increasing the cell’s ability to produce ATP. Laser therapy literally energizes the cells, speeding up the body’s own healing process.
