Treatments for Pain
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared modality that reduces inflammation and ultimately results in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions and post-op pain.
Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless and fast. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy treatments are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically patients see results after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy utilizes your body’s own healing powers by stimulating celluar activity.
Despite fast treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up 24 hours after treatment.
Regenerative Injections for Pain
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Joint injections using platelet rich plasma therapy effectively treats conditions such as Osteoarthritis, runner's knee, ligament/tendon injuries, and chronic pain. The injections work by stimulating the body's own healing response and repairing the injured tissue.
Prolotherapy: Joint injections using prolotherapy effectively treats conditions such as ligament laxity, joint instability, arthritis, ligament/tendon injuries and chronic pain.
Neuralprolotherapy & Biopuncture: The use of biological injections can benefit patients who complain of chronic or acute pain. Often, patients with chronic pain that have tried many treatments but have had no success, find this therapy works for them. This therapy can also improve healing time with sports-related injuries. Biopuncture & Neural Therapy involve injections of various solutions in different patterns on the body, depending on the presenting complaint. These techniques can also benefit those who have had to stop taking conventional medication because of side effects. Biopuncture can also be used to treat allergies, support the immune system and as an adjunct to detox regimens.
Trigger Point Injections: Trigger points are areas of the muscle that can cause pain to radiate to other areas of the body. Injecting a solution into these points can prompt the body to heal the area and for the trigger point to dissolve. For example, individuals often have trigger points in their upper backs that cause pain to radiate up their neck and even cause headaches. Injecting into the trigger point causes it to dissolve and the result is often that the headaches disappear completely. This therapy is beneficial for both acute and chronic pain.
