Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics offers the following treatments for joint pain:
Prolotherapy is a muscle and joint pain treatment that uses repeated injections of an irritant-causing solution into a joint. The irritant is often a sugar solution that triggers the growth of a joint’s connective tissue to reduce pain.
Physical therapy stretches and exercises strengthen joint tissues to reduce pain and the risk of further injuries.
PRP uses platelets from your blood to speed up healing naturally by stimulating new cell generation.
A2M injections use a molecule found in blood plasma to degrade arthritis-causing cells, inhibiting pain and improving joint functioning.
Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics offers corticosteroid, Synvisc-One® intra-articular hyaluronic acid for the knees, and additional joint injections to relieve discomfort, reduce inflammation, and increase joint lubrication.
Medical cannabis is a natural treatment for pain that reduces joint discomfort without the need for addictive medicines. The Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics team helps you gain access to medical cannabis products if you have a qualifying condition that causes joint pain.
Infusing fluids, nutrients, or medicines into your bloodstream is an effective pain-relieving method available at Advanced Spine and Pain Clinics.
