We talk a lot about PRP therapy, prolotherapy, and other regenerative medicine treatment options. These methods are offer a non-surgical, all natural alternative for many common conditions. Since they are relatively new in the medical field, many patients aren’t aware of their usefulness in treating many injuries and conditions. In this article, we are going to discuss five conditions and injuries that can be effectively treated with regenerative medicine techniques like PRP and Prolotherapy injections.
Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow – two common repetitive strain injuries – can impact tennis players, golfers, and other patients who perform repetitive motions involving the elbow and arm. The result is recurring pain from damaged tendons in the area. Regenerative injections can help naturally repair this damaged tissue and reduce pain.
Osteoarthritis of the knee occurs when the cartilage in the knee breaks down over time. PRP and prolotherapy injections use natural healing methods to regrow damaged tissue and decrease the pain caused by osteoarthritis.
Carpal tunnel is a repetitive stress injury common among office workers who type at a computer all day. The condition is characterized by pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and fingers as a result of an entrapment of the nerves that pass through the carpal tunnel in the wrist. PRP injections can help reduce nerve pain from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears, and tendonitis can prevent a person from exercising, playing sports, and even doing everyday tasks. PRP injections utilize a patient’s own blood platelets and plasma to encourage natural healing and regrowth.
Tendinosis of the ankle occurs when the peroneal tendons that wrap around the ankle begin to swell, typically as the result of repetitive overuse activities. Regenerative treatments can decrease this swelling and associated pain naturally, and avoid the need for surgical intervention.
