In Association with Synergy Medical
Regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues . Regenerative medicine includes the generation and use of therapeutic stem cells , tissue engineering and the production of artificial organs . In association with Synergy Medical, we are happy to be able to provide a multitude of shots including PRP, Prolozone®, Trigger Point, Ultrasound Guided Trigger Point, as well as Amnion.
A PRP injection is when PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is administered to the body via injection. PRP is a natural way to stimulate healing in the body. It has a localized effect, meaning it must be delivered to the area that has been injured or is experiencing chronic pain. The key ingredient that makes PRP so effective are the platelets. Platelets play several important roles in your body. Most notably, they encourage new cells to grow while removing old, damaged cells from the site of an injury.
Prolozone® uses ozone to stimulate the healing process and the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak. Collagen producing substances and ozone gas are injected into damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances stimulate circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.
GenVisc is a product that is injected into your knees to treat knee pain from joint inflammation and stiffness due to a disease known as osteoarthritis (OA). GenVisc is from a class of products known as hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronan (HA), which is also referred to as viscosupplementation therapy. It’s used in a nonsurgical procedure that helps supplement the viscous properties of the
fluid in your knee joint. GenVisc is approved for patients who have not adequately responded or have failed to find sufficient relief from simple analgesics, exercise or physical therapy.
Amniotic injections contain abundant substances that promote healthy tissue regeneration. These components include cytokines, growth factors, fibrinogen, collagen, hyaluronic acid and messenger RNA.This stem cell recruitment process is of particular value when a patient receives amniotic injections of PalinGen to help the body heal.
A trigger point injection can help soothe muscle pain, especially in your arms, legs, lower back and neck. It also can be used to treat fibromyalgia, tension headaches and myofascial pain.Trigger points are painful “knots” in your muscles. They form when a muscle can’t relax. Sometimes you can feel these knots when you rub your muscle.Injecting small amounts of anesthetic into the trigger point can help alleviate the pain.
