Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
When we perform PRP therapy, we extract a little bit of your blood and put it in a centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich plasma from other cells in your blood. Platelets contain proteins that aid recovery.
We inject the plasma into injured areas of the body to reduce inflammation and encourage the regeneration of injured tissue. This injection relieves pain effectively and addresses the underlying issues.
Trigger Point Injections
It may be due to trigger points if you struggle with unexplained stiffness and chronic pain. Some people struggle with chronic pain, stiffness, and other issues due to trigger points. Trigger points are tight muscle knots. We inject anesthetics or corticosteroids into the trigger point. Trigger point injections often work well, along with joint subluxation. For this reason, we provide trigger point injections in our practice.
We also offer one-on-one rehabilitation by a qualified professional at our practice. Of course, the treatment plan varies from patient to patient based on their individual needs. However, the basis of our rehabilitation service is the rehabilitation exercises we provide. These exercises strengthen your muscles, are free of side effects, and are an effective form of preventative treatment. We will perform a complete physical exam before devising our treatment plan.
Allergy testing helps determine if you are allergic to a specific substance. We perform this testing in a sequence to see if you react to common allergens. In addition, our chiropractor can use this testing to help you control your allergies with a revised treatment plan.
Another one of our allergy services is allergy immunotherapy. We gradually administer doses of common allergens via oral drops or injections. As a result, your immune system reacts differently to allergens over time, and you will have less severe allergic reactions. Allergy immunotherapy is a natural way to treat allergies effectively.
