The injection is an alternative to surgery.
Regenerative Treatments may prove to be the best alternative to surgery. If you are suffering from joint pain and are being recommended to have surgery, come to Performance Spine & Sports Medicine for expert, quality regenerative treatments and care.
Platelet Rich Plasma injection (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma injections (or PRP injections) can help regenerate and repair injured or torn muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones in knees, shoulders, ankles, hips and even the spine or low back. The athletes we have treated came in with hamstring tears, patellar tendinitis or tendon tears, and rotator cuff tears. In fact, many patients or athletes that have failed steroid injection or even surgical procedures turn to Platelet Rich Plasma Injections.
PRP injections are as natural as it gets. It is the plasma from your own drawn blood; after the blood is drawn it is spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. This plasma is rich in your own platelets. At 6-8 times their natural concentration, these growth factor and nutrient-rich platelets are then injected under ultrasound guidance back into a patient’s area of tendon damage or an arthritic joint. Significant improvements in function and a reduction of pain and swelling have been seen.

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.
This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
