How it Works to Relieve Pain
Regenerative injections target the cause of joint pain by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms locally at the source. Injections may be guided to tendons, ligaments or joints directly.
The body then initiates local inflammation at the injection site in order to stimulate healing. The result is stronger more stable tissues, relieving the trigger for recurring or chronic pain.
What to Expect from Regenerative Injection Therapies:
A visit with a physician will include a detailed consultation and physical exam to determine if you are a candidate for treatment.
Pending the physician’s assessment, patients may receive their first treatment during this visit.

3-4 treatments may be needed for maximum benefit.
The number of treatments depends on the diagnosis and the patient's individual healing response.
