Specific Procedures:

Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment for some orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cell rich serum taken from your blood. The growth factors from the platelets help with the healing process of injuries. Injecting PRP into areas of an injury stimulates and optimizes your body's ability to heal the chronic conditions.  Click here to learn more about this procedure. 

Prolotherapy
Prolotherapy is a procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing process to strengthen joints weakened by trauma or over-use. The procedure involves injection of a solution into a joint space, weakened ligament, or tendon.  Click here for more information.
