Debilitating pain is no fun. If left untreated, pain can make life downright unmanageable. The good news is the condition doesn’t have to be this way. At Blatman Health and Wellness Center, we offer a number of regenerative medicines and therapies that can help heal pain and other ailments.
Two regenerative treatments that have proved highly effective for our Cincinnati patients is PRP Therapy and stem cell treatments. The processes use the patient’s own blood to rebuild and heal damaged tissues, tendons or cartilage.
Plasma is drawn from a blood sample that is put into a centrifuge. The platelets are removed from the blood and then injected into the damaged area.
Prolotherapy involves injecting concentrated dextrose and Novocaine into the stressed or injured tissue. This new and very small injury helps alleviate blood supply issues that may be causing the pain and wakes up your body’s healing program. It provides the tissue nourishment and greater blood flow to provide relief and healing.
Unlike prolotherapy which uses dextrose or sugar water as the injection element, PRP therapy injects your own plasma — the part of the blood containing growth factors thought to promote healing. It works faster than prolotherapy.
Prolotherapy is typically less effective and requires more sessions of injections. PRP works faster, requiring 1 to 3 treatment sessions in many cases.
Stem Cell Therapy
Often, the patient’s own stem cells are used to provide natural building blocks for healing. It can provide effective pain and healing relief without surgery.
Stem cells have been effective to treat joints, muscles, tendons, and bone fractures. As a regenerative medicine doctor, Dr. Blatman has seen it help heal back and knee pain, sport injuries, and even help relieve urinary stress incontinence.
