Injections Q & A

What is regenerative injection therapy?

Regenerative injection therapy is used to restore function and help relieve pain associated with damage and injury to the musculoskeletal system. Injection therapy is commonly used to treat injuries of the:

  • Joints
  • Bones
  • Muscles
  • Cartilage
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments

Injection therapy stimulates healing and tissue repair using injections of solutions that boost the body’s natural ability to generate new cells and tissue at the injury site.

What are some types of injection therapy?

Injection therapy utilizes up-to-date, research-based techniques and methods to administer healing therapies to the specific site of damaged tissue.

The team at Wdowin NMD uses a variety of injection therapies including:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP is a concentrated serum extracted from a sample of your blood. Using a specialized technique, powerful healing cells from the blood called platelets are isolated. When injected, they stimulate cell regeneration and new tissue growth.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cells, or non-specialized cells, extracted from your own fatty tissue and bone marrow are injected into injured tissue. This process stimulates new growth of tissue-specific cells and regeneration of healthy tissue at the site of injury.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy uses a concentrated solution of dextrose to stimulate the immune response at the site of tissue damage. This can increase production of naturally occurring healing components in the blood, as well as boost the effectiveness of both stem cell therapy and PRP therapy.

These treatments are often used together to enhance each therapy’s healing potential. For best results, you may require a series of one to three treatments performed about three to five weeks apart.

What conditions can be treated using injection therapy?

Dr. Wdowin and his team use these revolutionary methods to treat a number of conditions, including:

  • Tendonitis
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Knee injuries, including ACL tears
  • Ligament injuries
  • Rotator cuff or shoulder injuries
  • Sports injuries

With regenerative injection therapy, you have a nonsurgical option for treating pain that may not respond well to other treatments. Aside from increased mobility and improved muscle strength, you also may be able to avoid reliance on pain medication for comfort.
