What is Regenerative Injection Therapy? (prolotherpy, PRP, somatic cell, ozone...)
Regenerative Injections Therapies are a type of therapy involving the injection of numbing, nutritive, and anti-inflammatory agents into the injured or painful site to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This strengthens the structures to improve function and reduce pain. Prolotherapy, PRP, ProlOzone and Somatic Cells are the specific treatments. The doctor will be able to advise which therapy is most appropriate for your case.
How does Regenerative Medicine work?
By injecting the local anesthesia injured cell membranes are re-polarized to reduce pain and improve circulation. Locally inflammatory solutions re-activate the body’s acute injury response to heal the injury/joint/ tissues as if it the damage just occured and nutrients provide raw materials for local repair. PRP can be added to support proliferation and stem cell activation. Stem cell injection locally delivers the basic builing blocks of new tisues to accelerate healing. Oxygen or Ozone stimulates local circulation and growth factor production while reducing damage from free radicals that contributes to ongoing chronic pain cycles and chronic disease.
Is the injection therapy painful?
When can I go back to my normal daily activities after a treatment?
Are injections safe? How effective are they?
The rate of success depends on multiple factors, including patients other medical conditions, ability to heal, age, nutritional status, and personal care following treatment. That is why we have a pre-injection phase of care to optimixe your body’s ability to respond to the injection, which acts as the catalyst for healing. We have seen multiple patients be able to avoid surgery, chronic pain resolve and function be restored. These therapies do involve active participation in the healing process and are not a magic bullet quick fix.
How are RITs different from steroid injections?
Are RITs covered by my insurance?
Typically there is no coverage for this service. All injection therapies can be applied towards insurance deductible and all fees for care can be paid using a flexible spending or HSA account. We aim to get you lasting results and are committed to you being pain free!
