Regenerative Medicine - Regenerative Medicine, or regenerative therapy, is growing in popularity and for good reason. Our staff at West Knoxville Medical and Chiropractic and Medical wants you to know about regenerative therapy and how we decide if Regenerative Medicine is right for you.
PRP Therapy - PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. A small sample of your blood is extracted using a syringe and then placed in a centrifuge which separates the plasma that is rich in platelets from the other cells in the blood. Platelets are important in the body to help clot blood but also contain other important proteins that help in healing the body. These proteins are called growth factors. PRP contains a high concentration of these proteins to help stimulate growth and healing in the body. The PRP is injected into injured areas found in the body to stimulate regeneration of injured tissue and to help decrease inflammation. This provides effective relief of pain and helps to resolve the underlying problem by repairing the injury.
Trigger Point Injections - Do certain motions or pressure on certain points on your body seem to set off acute bursts of pain? Do you suffer from unexplained chronic pain and stiffness? You could be one of the many people plagued by knots of tight muscle known as trigger points. Trigger points and joint subluxation often go hand in hand, which is why we offer trigger point injections, or TPI, in conjunction with our other healing techniques here at West Knoxville Medical and Chiropractic.
