“Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects.”
According to the American Osteopathic Association of Regenerative Medicine, Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy), also known as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue.
Prolotherapy is an injection procedure that assists in the resolution of tiny tears or injuries to connective tissue located throughout the musculoskeletal system (e.g., ligaments, tendons, muscle fibers, fascia and joint capsules). Oftentimes connective tissue becomes injured when it is torn away from a nearby bone. Prolotherapy is most often used in the case of injuries or conditions.
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy:
PRP may aid in the recovery of soft tissue injuries and arthritic conditions (tendons, ligaments and cartilage). The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain reservoirs of bioactive protein, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. The goal of the bioactive proteins is to stimulate connective tissue healing, bone regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the wound healing process.
These regenerative medicine modalities may be used for the following chronic pain conditions:
- Chronic ligament and tendon injuries, pains, sprains or strains.
- Chronic back pain or neck pain.
- Joint pain caused by osteoarthritis (especially arthritis of the knee and back).
- Weakness and instability that lasts for more than six weeks and is tied to muscle or joint pain.
- Degenerative knee cartilage.
- Frozen shoulder and rotator cuff injuries.
- Chronic elbow tendonosis (tennis elbow)
- Plantar fasciitis.
- People who take pain-reducing medications frequently (including Advil, aspirin, ibuprofen, oral steroids) but don’t feel their condition is getting better.
- Those who fail to feel better after having corrective surgery.
- People who have tried physical therapy but still experience pain and stiffness.
- Anyone having trouble exercising, sleeping or moving normally without experiencing joint pain and limitations.
Our patient-partners who have received these modalities testify almost immediately that they experience significant reduction in pain, even after just the first treatment (generally 3 to 4 may be recommended), as well as increased mobility and flexibility.
For the past five years Infinite Health has successfully helped thousands of people reduce their dependency on various prescription medications, including opioids such as hydrocodone and somas, etc., via their 4 Pillars Approach to care which involves tailoring a comprehensive individualized program centered on optimizing the nutritional habits, physical fitness habits, metabolic and hormonal optimization via bio-identical hormones, as well as our Empowered Medicine proprietary mindfulness motivational coaching program. In fact, we wrote the book on Empowered Medicine: Harnessing the laws of the universe for optimized health.
