Even if you suffer from chronic pain every single day, you may be apprehensive about invasive surgical treatments or the prospect of taking medications on a continuous, seemingly never-ending basis.
Despite ongoing pain and feeling like they have tried everything, many patients aren’t even aware that other cutting-edge options are available to successfully treat several causes of ongoing pain without highly-invasive surgery or daily medications.
PRP & Stem Cell Injections for Musculoskeletal Pain
Chronic joint pain affects approximately 1 in 4 Americans. Unfortunately, joint pain is not only, well, painful, but it can also be extremely limiting in your day-to-day life. If you suffer from chronic joint pain and surgery, pain medication, or steroid injections have not worked or do not feel right for you, there are other options.
Breakthrough injectable therapies that are derived from your own body’s cells can be used to trigger natural healing mechanisms and relieve chronic joint, muscle, and ligament pain. Because we harvest the components of these treatments from your own body, the chances of adverse reactions are slim. Recovery time is minimal, especially compared with surgical options. These therapies can treat:
- Joint Damage and Injuries
- Ligament Tears
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Herniated/Bulging Discs
- Many other conditions from injuries to chronic joint and tendon issues
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is simple to derive from a quick blood draw. After separating the platelet-rich plasma from the other compounds and cells in the blood, it is injected into the treatment area. Your body responds to the high concentration of growth factors found in PRP by triggering a natural healing response.
Stem cells also promote healing within the body. It is possible to extract your own stem cells in a simple outpatient procedure. Then, the stem cells are processed in a centrifuge. The resulting concentrated solution is injected into the treatment area. Stem cells promote new tissue growth and reduce inflammation in the area.
The O-Shot is a treatment that is gaining in popularity for treating sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence in women. In addition, it can effectively treat painful intercourse as well as other chronic vaginal pain resulting from episiotomy, surgery, mesh, or vaginal dryness.
Many women feel uncomfortable discussing vaginal pain with their treatment providers, and when they do, they may experience less than satisfactory treatment options. The O-Shot can be a game-changer for women suffering from vaginal pain or intimacy issues.
This treatment begins with deriving platelet-rich plasma from your own blood. After numbing the area thoroughly with a local anesthetic, the PRP is injected into strategic locations in the vagina and clitoris. Concentrated growth factors found in PRP rejuvenate the tissue, promoting new, healthy tissue regeneration.
Varicose Vein Treatment
If you suffer from varicose veins, you know that they can be extremely uncomfortable to live with. Varicose veins can cause a burning sensation, itchy feeling, swelling, tenderness, and pain. They can even cause dry skin, eczema, and ulcers. Many patients suffer from these symptoms for years.
You should know that there are multiple treatments available for varicose veins. Many of these treatments are minimally invasive, outpatient procedures that are quick and effective at treating varicose veins and alleviating the pain and discomfort associated with them. And you may be surprised to find out that most insurance carriers cover varicose vein procedures.
