Conservative care for mechanical and /or repetitive use injuries benefits from a variety of therapies including: physical /occupational therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga, pilates.
Degenerative processes may respond to injections of Stem cells or PRP which reduce pain and may promote regeneration. We avoid the repetitive intra-articular injection of steroids.
Type of Injections:
Corticosteroid injection - These are used to treat inflammation and decrease pain.
Hyaluronic acid joint injections - These are used to replace lost synovial joint fluid, to increase mobility and range of motion.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection - These are used to treat pain and injuries of the tendons and ligaments.
