Types of Injections

 
Botox   - Botox is a very effective muscle relaxant in addition to treat neuropathic pain. The effectiveness of rehabilitation can be increaed by relaxing tight muscles and reduce pain. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as painful muscle spasm, thoracic outlet syndrome, fibromyalgia, cervical dystonia and post-herpetic neuralgia. 
 
Prolotherapy - Natural proliferant is injected to "tighten up" stretched out ligaments. This is a non-surgical approach to treat unstable joints such as the lower back and SI joint. 
 
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - This is the newest cutting edge procedure that has been used in professional sports to treat muscle, tendon and ligament injuries.  A portion of your own blood is extracted and centrifuged to collect the concentrated platelets along with huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins and growth factors. These are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.  The benefit of PRP injection include connective tissue healing, bone regeneration and repair, development of new blood vessels, and the stimulation of wound healing. It has been shown to be helpful with arthritic joints, lower back pain, degenerative disc disease and more specific injuries including tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, ACL tears, shin splints, rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis and iliotibial band syndrome.The additional therapies and exercises offered to complement this therapy help to insure that you are fully restored and at least as functional as prior to the injury.

The multi-disciplinary team has been providing specific, gentle and skillful injections to minimize discomfort associated with the procedure.
