Joint Care Is Important for Everyone

19 October 2018 - General

Joint pain can happen to anyone and joint care is important for everyone.

Many people suffer from chronic joint or ligament pain after an accident. Sometimes pain will occur immediately after an injury, other times the onset is delayed. You do not have to live with chronic pain. You have natural treatment options to recover. One effective way of helping your body heal is getting regenerative injection therapy with one of our naturpathic doctors. Through Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy) and Trigger Point Injections (TPI) you can treat pain and avoid invasive procedures. These treatments are effective in treating chronic pain from sports injuries and arthritis, including Osteoarthrits.

One effective way of helping your joints heal and maintaining joint health is with regenerative injection therapy in the affected joint to replace damaged fluids and boost your joint’s natural ability to take care of itself. There is no cure for damaged cartilage, arthritis, or osteoarthritis currently, but regenerative injection therapies can prevent the degeneration of the joint, relieve pain, and increase joint stability.

How We Can Help 

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, also known as PRP therapy, promotes pain relief by injecting a concentrated level of your own platelets into the site of your pain and repair your joint naturally. PRP therapy starts by drawing a small amount of your blood and separating the healing platelets using a centrifuge. Your platelets are then harvested and combined with a natural activating agent, and then injected in and around your joint or ligament. Platelets found in blood contain many proteins and growth factors that help heal the body and can relieve joint pain. It has been shown to be an effective treatment for reducing lingering pain from injury, several tendinopathies, and forms of arthritis. Many professional athletes including professional golfer Tiger Woods, previous Trail Blazers Brandon Roy, and professional tennis player Maria Sharapova have used PRP Therapy to treat joint and tendon pain.


Trigger-Point Injection Therapy (TPI) is used to treat painful ‘knots’ of muscle (trigger points) that form when muscles do not relax. The definition of a trigger point, is an isolated spasm affecting just a patch of muscle tissue (not a whole-muscle spasm like a “charlie horse”). Often felt under the skin, the knots may cause localized pain and may irritate the nerves around them, causing pain elsewhere in the body.
