New study from American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons shows PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) more effective Vs cortisone for plantar fasciitis/heel pain

Chronic plantar fasciitis is commonly diagnosed in patients, but can be a difficult condition to treat successfully. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is the injection of concentrated platelets that is abundant with cytokines (immunomodulation agents) and other growth elements. PRP injection was compared to cortisone injection when treating severe cases of plantar fasciitis that are resistant … Continue reading New study from American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons shows PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) more effective Vs cortisone for plantar fasciitis/heel pain

Utilizing our own body’s regenerative cells to heal is less controversial and likely more effective than embryonic cells experts say…

About 15 years ago you might remember a storm around the idea of embryonic stem cells and the presidential election. During the debates, there lacked a distinction between utilizing our own body’s regenerative cells (Autologous Stem cells) Vs those from a fetus (Embryonic Stem cells) . This association is still a problem and many people … Continue reading Utilizing our own body’s regenerative cells to heal is less controversial and likely more effective than embryonic cells experts say…

Using Radiofrequency Ablation to treat SI Joint Pain featured in this month’s “Pain Pathways” Magazine

Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain afflicts millions of Americans every year, and is thought to be the main culprit in up to 30% of chronic back pain sufferers. It continues to be widely underdiagnosed by many physicians in part because MRIs of the low back typically do not focus on this area and therefore show nothing … Continue reading Using Radiofrequency Ablation to treat SI Joint Pain featured in this month’s “Pain Pathways” Magazine

New Study Finds Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) May Combat Degenerative Disease of the Intervertebral Discs of the Spine

Our spines consist of intervertebral discs which lie in-between the vertebrae, acting like gelatinous “shock-absorbers”.  As we age, the annulus fibrosus, which is the strong outer ring of these discs, weakens and defects in the ring can cause a disc herniation, leading to low back pain and lower extremity pain. A new study shows promise … Continue reading New Study Finds Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) May Combat Degenerative Disease of the Intervertebral Discs of the Spine
