What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine involves using your body to heal itself, using naturally occurring cells and specialized fluids. Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine provides patients with several options including Wharton’s Jelly and amniotic allograft treatments for regenerative healing purposes. These treatment options are made up of hyaluronic acid, regenerative mesenchymal stem cells, and cytokines, which are all powerful growth factors that help accelerate regeneration of your body’s tissues. Once you’re injected with a regenerative product, the growth factors start to work, triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks, cells grow and divide, forming new tissues. This helps heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through an invasive surgical procedure.

Which areas can be treated with regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine utilizing Wharton’s Jelly or amniotic allograft treatments are beneficial for helping many types of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis. The injections can help heal your:

  • Neck
  • Spine
  • Knees
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Elbows
  • Ankles
  • Wrists

How long does regenerative medicine take to work?

Because you are kickstarting your body into making new tissues, it does take some time for your regenerative medicine treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two months, while others experience improvement within a few weeks. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.

Will I need more than one treatment with regenerative medicine?

Possibly, depending on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury. If you don’t see any improvement after several months, or if you don’t notice significant improvement, your doctor might suggest repeating the treatment, just to further boost healthy tissue growth. They can let you know what to expect during your consultation and assessment appointment.

Do the regenerative medicine injections hurt?

They are injections after all, so you may feel a bit of stinging, but only for a few seconds. Most patients describe a temporary burning sensation, although it doesn’t last long. If you’re sensitive to pain or are getting the injections in a sensitive area, your practitioner can apply a topical numbing cream. This type of cream decreases some of the stinging sensation from the injection and minimizes your discomfort.

PRP Therapy


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a clinically-proven, natural treatment that helps heal underlying issues responsible for chronic pain and other concerns. Located in Gresham, Oregon, the integrated medical team at Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine often recommends PRP therapy to their patients. It’s a remarkably effective remedy that combines the best of medical science and technology with the innovative approach of integrative medicine.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is your blood plasma that has been enriched with your own concentrated platelets. This concentrated PRP contains several different growth factors that stimulate healing of bone, and joint cartilage, tendons and other structures.

The good news is that the cells responsible for healing injuries is already contained in your blood! Platelets also contain proteins called growth factors, which play an important role in the process of healing of injuries.

With Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, our skilled providers inject cells that stimulate inflammation, which alerts the body to take notice of the injured tissue again so it can assist in healing the damaged tissue once again. PRP can accelerate the healing process of injures such as plantar fasciitis, tendon, ligament, bone and cartilage injuries. Platelet rich plasma has gained substantial popularity in the arena of sports medicine and orthopedics for its ability to enhance healing of both chronic and acute ailments. It can many times augment or even replace surgery, and many patients have decreased pain after the first injection. You no longer must be a professional athlete to receive this type of therapy.

Call (503) 489-1998 today for an evaluation and see if PRP is right for you.

Headaches & Migraines


When patients come to us for help with headaches/migraines, we have one main goal. That is to help them achieve lasting pain relief naturally and drug-free. By doing so, we spare them from the need for medications to dull their pain. Our staff takes an intense interest in finding the correct cause of each patient’s headache and providing the right treatment so they can enjoy life headache-free.

Much success has been had providing relief from the following types of headaches:

Tension headaches

Tension headaches often have their source right next door—in the neck. Persistently tense muscles, poor posture and accumulated trauma that damages the alignment or free movement of the neck can all cause headaches.

Migraine headaches

Migraines are mental, physical and emotional ordeals that can last from a few hours to a few days. These headaches are marked by severe throbbing or pulsing pain and may include nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, visual changes, fluctuating moods and weakness.

The solution for headaches depends on what our examination finds. Here at Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine, we work closely with every patient to look at any factors that could be triggering their pain. Then we can develop the right treatment plan to alleviate the cause.

Treatment Options for Headache Relief:

Chiropractic Adjustments

For a back to be pain-free, the vertebrae must be flexible and in good alignment. Gentle chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment and mobility to each joint and correct the curve of the spine.

Massage Therapy

Our therapists utilize numerous techniques including Swedish/relaxation, auto accident recovery, sports injury and deep tissue massage tailored to your specific condition.

Physical Rehabilitation

People with headaches have often lost the full range of motion of neck, back or shoulders without realizing it. Specific therapy to restore proper range of motion, flexibility and strength goes a very long way toward restoring optimum balance throughout the body.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

A damaged or herniated disc in the neck can cause a persistent headache. Spinal decompression gently stretches and releases the vertebrae in the neck to allow fluids to hydrate each disc, improving healing.

Please consult with us if you suffer from headaches. We look forward to helping you find lasting headache relief by correcting the cause of the problem.

Neck Pain


When you suffer neck pain, you simply want it to be over. It doesn’t matter whether your pain emanates from a herniated disc or a muscular problem…you want the source of the pain to heal so you can take your life back. Our treatment options are designed to heal your body and get you fast and effective pain relief. We’re never going to suggest that you simply cover up the pain with medications or “just live with it.” For our patients, we have been able to offer much more effective and healthier solutions for neck pain relief.

Neck Pain Causes

Our providers start with a thorough examination. That way, we can determine if the problem is muscle spasms, changes to bone structure, ligament instability, a disc problem or some other cause. We will then select from the many treatment options we have available to promote healing in and around your neck. For some types of neck pain, stem cell therapy may be our first choice.

Regenerative Cell Therapy

Stem cells are remarkable engines of healing. Your own body creates stem cells but the older you get, the fewer you have. By utilizing the youngest and most vibrant of stem cells – those from amniotic fluid or umbilical cord tissue – our patients can receive an infusion of intelligent healing power.

Why do we say intelligent? Because when your body is injured or inflamed, it sends out signals that it needs healing support. Stem cells respond to these signals. They also have the ability to grow into the type of cell your body needs to initiate optimum healing. So, conditions that may have persisted in the neck for years can finally heal. Ligament damage, sprains, whiplash, arthritic changes to the facets (small joints in the spine) can all respond to powerful stem cells.

Additional Treatment Options for Neck Pain

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) directs the strongest healing components in your own blood directly at injured tissues.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments may be needed to restore proper alignment and movement to the cervical (neck) vertebrae

Exercises

Exercises may be recommended to strengthen muscles and increase flexibility

Nutritional and Lifestyle Changes

Nutritional and lifestyle changes may be recommended to support detoxification and increase overall energy

Class IV Laser

Class IV laser treatment is a non-invasive treatment that helps reduce inflammation and speed healing

Many of our patients have tried other avenues to eliminate their pain without success. Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine is a different type of medical center with cutting edge treatment options. Our entire focus is on supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. When the body heals, pain is relieved and that eliminates the need for painkillers or surgery.

Whether your pain has been around for years or it’s a recent arrival, consult with us to learn how we might be able to help. A conversation with one of our staff will tell you if you are a good candidate who could achieve recovery through our methods.

Back Pain


Back pain reliefcan be achieved with regenerative medicine (treatments including stem cells and growth factors) and physical medicine (including chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, exercise, or class 4 laser therapy. Our doctors and providers will create a customized treatment program to alleviate your pain and get you back on the path to feeling like yourself again. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy life without back pain?

Identifying Causes of Back Pain

Developing the right treatment plan to resolve your problem begins with a careful examination and diagnosis of the source of your pain. We then select from the effective treatment options available to bring you relief and healing. Depending on your pain causes, we may recommend regenerative stem cell therapyPRP, spinal manipulation, acupuncture, exercise or other customized treatment plans.

Regenerative Cell Therapy for Back Pain

Stem cells are called “mother cells.” They get this name because they can develop into any type of cell needed to heal injured or inflamed tissue. Muscle tears, ligament damage and inflammation respond to the healing power of these cells. While our own bodies make stem cells, we create fewer of them as we age and aged stem cells are less effective than young vibrant cells. Therefore, we utilize stem cells ethically sourced from umbilical cord tissue or amniotic fluid so we can provide the most powerfully healing cells available.

We may recommend combining stem cells with another remarkable healing procedure: platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are the most active healing components of your own blood. We will take a sample of your blood and concentrate the platelets. This concentration is then returned to an area of pain to support even greater healing.

Additional Treatment Options for Back Pain

Chiropractic Adjustments

For a back to be pain-free, the vertebrae must be flexible and in good alignment. Gentle chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment and mobility to each joint and correct the curve of the spine.

Massage Therapy

Our therapists utilize numerous techniques including Swedish/relaxation, auto accident recovery, sports injury and deep tissue massage tailored to your specific condition.

Class IV Laser

Our Class IV laser sends healing wavelengths of light deep into the body to accelerate healing and relieve pain symptoms. In just a few treatments, patients often see a significant change and reduction in their inflammation.

Physical Rehabilitation

Using our extensive training and experience, we plan physical rehab programs for many of our patients. Stretching and strengthening motions are vital additions to a recovery plan.

At Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine, we have a wealth of state-of-the-art medical technology available that enables our patients to resume active, pain-free lives. That is what we are here for and why we welcome you to our integrated medical center.

Knee Pain


The best knee pain relief starts with finding and addressing the actual cause of your knee pain. Consider some of the common knee pain causes. Do you have cartilage damage, a tear in your meniscus or ACL, or is osteoarthritis making its way into your knee? Regardless of the source of the pain we our goal is to find the real issue and create a customized regenerative medicine treatment program to get you out of pain and back to living your life without the need for surgery or drugs.

We have many treatment options that have proven effective in relieving knee pain, including, but not limited to, regenerative medicine, joint injections, PRP, bracing and procedures containing stem cells.

These treatment options have helped many patients recover mobility without surgery or drugs, even after they have suffered for many years.

Regenerative Cell Therapy for Knee Pain Relief

Regenerative medicine is a preferred non-surgical and much less invasive option available for those suffering many types of knee pain. The reason regenerative cell treatments are so effective when used for knee repair is that they can grow into the exact type of cell needed to heal and rebuild after an injury or long term degeneration. The presence of these cells also reduces inflammation and can halt the advance of knee arthritis or osteoarthritis. Your own body grows stem cells but the older you get, the fewer of these cells you generate, and the less effective your natural stem cells become.

To provide regenerative cell therapy for knee pain, we utilize what we feel are the most powerfully healing cells available, those present in amniotic fluid or umbilical cord tissue called mesenchymal stem cells. Carefully harvested, these cells bring the power of regeneration to aching knees. Your body can use these cells to repair torn cartilage, heal strained ligaments and regrow or repair the damaged joint space, cartilage and synovial fluid.

Additional Treatment Options for Knee Pain:

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The platelets in your own blood are activated whenever your body signals that it has been injured. We concentrate the platelets from a small sample of your blood and inject these directly into the painful joint. These cells then aid with needed cartilage and tissue regeneration. PRP is often administered in conjunction with stem cell therapy for the most effective results.

Class IV Laser

When an injured area is swollen, it’s harder for cleansing and healing fluids to pass through the area. Our Class VI laser treatment reduces swelling and so accelerates healing and pain relief.

Joint Fluid Supplementation

Knee osteoarthritis reduces that joint’s supply of lubricant, increasing pain and making it harder to move the joint. We use hyaluronan injections to restore lubrication and shock absorption to knee joints

Exercise and Lifestyle Counseling

Many people lack knowledge in the types of exercise and general activity that help strengthen muscles around the knee and prevent further damage. Educating them on how to sit, stand and move about is an integral part of preserving improvements. Dietary changes can help them reduce overall inflammation and pain.

Shoulder Pain


The correct shoulder pain diagnosis may reveal any number of causes for your pain. A rotator cuff injury, impact, poorly-healed injury, aging, joint degeneration, bone damage, arthritis, perhaps you have a pinched nerve in your shoulder or maybe a torn labrum. Pain relief and full healing are possible with the proper non-surgical treatment option. Wetreat your shoulder pain with a customized treatment program designed specifically for you. This enables you to experience maximum pain relief with the goal to avoid rotator cuff surgery or other invasive shoulder surgery.

Non Surgical Options for Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries are helped tremendously by regenerative injections containing natural growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells. Many patients report rapid recovery without having to undergo shoulder surgery or the effects of long painful recovery periods after rotator cuff surgery.

Shoulder injuries cause varying levels of pain and often stop you from using your shoulder and arm. Arthritic inflammation in a shoulder joint can end up destroying cartilage that should cushion the bones. When the cartilage has been minimized, the result is bone on bone and that’s very painful. A rotator cuff injury may stop you from lifting your arm. This may limit your participation in some of the things you love to do. Tendons in the shoulder may also become inflamed, a painful condition called tendinitis which causes pain every time you move.

Stem cell therapy utilizes the most powerful healing cells available in modern medicine to help your body heal itself. These cells have the unique ability to grow into the exact type of cells your body needs for tissue repair.

When introduced into an injured or aging shoulder, these stem cells go right to work to reduce inflammation, they also instantly promote the healing of muscle tears, ligaments, cartilage and even bone itself. Inflammation and pain normally diminish rapidly, while healing of muscle, ligament and bone continues to restore your shoulder muscles to a normal, healthy state. Stem cell treatments may even help you avoid rotator cuff surgery.

If stem cell treatments are not determined to be right for you. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma,treatments might be a good option. During PRP treatment, we take a sample of your own blood and concentrate its most effective healing components—the platelets. We then inject the platelet-rich plasma into the injured area of your shoulder. These platelets are then in the right place to repair damaged cartilage, tendons or muscles.

Sciatica


There are two reasons that sciatica creates so much misery. One is the excruciating pain itself that can radiate from the lower back to the foot. The other is the difficulty many people have in eliminating the pain. Is the only solution for sciatica pain relief a combination of painkillers and muscle relaxers? That’s a mixture that could easily result in dependence on these drugs. A drug-free recovery from sciatica may simply be a better solution.

If you have never suffered from sciatica symptoms, you are lucky. The condition often results in numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness that extends all the way down one leg. It can hurt to walk, stand or sit for any length of time. The condition results from the irritation of nerves near the bottom of your spine.

When we see a patient with sciatica, we get them started right away on multiple treatment options to heal this irritation and restore the patient’s ability to sit, stand and walk without pain.

Additional Treatment Options for Sciatica:

Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy

This therapy has an enormous ability to reduce inflammation and enhance healing of irritated nerves. Our own bodies manufacture these healing cells but as we age, the quantity of these cells reduces. We obtain cells ethically harvested from umbilical cord tissue or amniotic fluid, resulting in the most powerful healing cells available. In treatment of sciatica, stem cell therapy helps alleviate nerve irritation to restore the ability to move comfortably.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelets are the most active healing components in your own blood. By concentrating these platelets in your blood plasma and then returning this plasma to an injured area, you can see an increase in healing which means reduced pain and improved function.

Class IV Laser

Patients love our Class IV Laser for the healing and pain relief it offers. This laser sends calming light waves deep into your body, helping those irritated nerves return to normal.

Chiropractic Treatment

In case after case, chiropractic treatment has proven to be an effective method of addressing sciatica. Gentle adjustments to the position of lower back vertebrae relieve pressure on the discs between your vertebrae and normalizes the space available to these discs. More fluids can reach discs to keep them hydrated. This soothes discs and adjacent nerves and irritation heals.

Physical Rehabilitation

Our state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation services not only help restore normal mobility and strength to your body, they also teach you how to maintain your strength and mobility after your pain is gone.

Your route back to functionality and pain-free living does not have to include drugs or surgery. We will educate you on how we have helped many patients recover from this excruciating pain. In many cases, we have been able to reduce pain early in our treatment.

Arthritis


Arthritiscan rapidly rob a person of the ability to enjoy a pain-free life. It becomes hard to walk, move about or take care of the household, children or grandchildren. Sports are often out of the question. We offer so many pain relief treatments to improve the quality of life for a person with arthritis.

Because of our intensive interest in helping our patients, we have researched far and wide to bring the best therapies under one roof. Our medical team has a wealth of state-of-the-art technology available to reduce your pain and stimulate healing and help restore your mobility.

Regenerative Cell Therapy for Arthritis Relief

Regenerative stem cell therapy harnesses the healing and rejuvenating power of young stem cells. Every person’s body creates stem cells but as we age, there are fewer and fewer of these healing cells available. This scarcity means that our ability to heal slows down and we have less ability to fight off diseases like arthritis. Injuries take longer to improve and, in fact, may never heal completely.

The solution is utilizing the vibrant and active stem cells present in umbilical cords or amniotic fluid. Introducing these extremely active, youthful healing cells into an area suffering from the inflammation and degeneration of arthritis starts an improved healing response. Patients who thought surgery or joint replacement was their only option are amazed as their pain fades away and they recover full functionality of the affected joint.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) involves filtering out the most active healing components in your blood, the platelets, and concentrating them in your own clear blood plasma. When this fluid is injected into an arthritic joint, the platelets can go to work to calm inflammation and repair damaged joints, cartilage and synovial fluid. PRP is often utilized in conjunction with regenerative stem cell therapy for maximum improvement.

Additional Treatment Options for Arthritis Relief:

Joint Fluid Therapy

Joints that have lost their lubricating fluid due to aging or arthritis can be soothed by adding hyaluronan to that joint. This fluid is the same type of lubricant that your body naturally produces. Freer, more pain-free movement is the usual result.

Class IV Laser

Our laser sends healing light waves deep into tissues, reducing inflammation and speeding the healing process.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Muscle and joint imbalances place excessive stress on certain areas of the body. Gentle chiropractic adjustments to the spine or other joints improves the function and balance of the whole body. Assisting the body back into balance creates an equilibrium so that the body is better equipped to handle everyday stresses.

Medical Weight Loss

Extra weight is a risk factor for arthritis and reducing weight relieves the stress placed on all the joints. Our medical weight loss program helps you implement the right approach to weight loss and supports you while you transition to a permanently healthier lifestyle.

Physical Rehabilitation

Our expert rehab providers work with patients with arthritis to help them recover mobility and stability.

We are ready to help you achieve a more mobile, pain-free life. Please call our office for a free consultation on our cutting-edge options for arthritis treatment in Gresham, OR.

Peripheral Neuropathy


Many people have no idea that they are suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Most come to us to get help for pain, numbness or weakness in their hands, feet, arms or legs without even knowing that they were suffering from this condition. There could be multiple causes for this problem and it is our job to isolate the causes at work with each patient and get them the medical treatment they need.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Neuropathy refers to a disease or degeneration of the nerves leading to the arms, legs, hands and feet. The word peripheral refers to the outer edge of something, in this case, your body.

Symptoms of this problem include:

  • Numbness and tingling in feet, hands, fingers and toes
  • Burning sensation in hands and feet
  • Weakness in hands, resulting in dropping objects and having difficulty picking them up
  • Leg weakness or cramps
  • Wasting of muscles
  • Loss of dexterity

The discomfort from peripheral neuropathy makes it hard to exercise, move about or sleep. Sufferers stop exercising which only intensifies their weakness. Diabetic patients often suffer from this problem but there can be other causes that need to be properly addressed, like vascular damage.

Treating Peripheral Neuropathy

Some doctors implement treatments dependent upon pain medications. These drugs simply mask your symptoms and may even include dangerous side effects.

Our medical team concern themselves with improving health conditions and healing your body so you don’t have to rely on drugs. Our treatments do not only improve peripheral neuropathy symptoms. It also helps reverse the nerve damage and improve any vascular damage that may have occurred. Here are some of the natural treatment options available to you at our medical clinic.

Regenerative Cell Therapy for Neuropathy Relief

Stem cells are called mother cells because they can develop into many other types of cells. That’s why these mesenchymal stem cells bring incredible healing power to any patient who receives injections of these cells. This therapy is known as regenerative medicine because it helps your body regenerate damaged cells, tissue, bones etc. Even damaged nerve cells can be repaired. As we age, our own supply of stem cells decreases which slows down our ability to heal. We utilize only the youngest, most dynamic types of stem cells so each patient can benefit from the healing ability present in young cells. Mesenchymal stem cells derived from amniotic fluid or umbilical cord tissues enable damaged cells to regenerate.

Additional Treatment Options for Neuropathy Relief:

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

The platelets in your own blood are highly active repair cells. We process a small sample of your blood to concentrate platelets in the clear plasma of your blood. Then when we return this platelet-rich plasma to your body, its healing power goes to work to subdue your pain and weakness.

Fitness and Weight Loss Coaching

An essential part of recovering from peripheral neuropathy is eliminating those foods that contribute to nerve degeneration. We work with our patients to help them understand how to achieve a higher level of health and energy through diet and exercise.
