Radial Pulse Therapy (Shockwave)
Also known as radial shockwave therapy (RSWT), radial pulse therapy is fast, easy, and extremely effective for athletes suffering from almost any kind of chronic soft tissue pain—including tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, trigger points, and more.
The radial pulse machine uses low-medium impulses that penetrate into the targeted tissues. These impulses penetrate deep into tissue and spread out radially, where they trigger your body’s natural healing and repair mechanisms—boosting metabolism and circulation, breaking up scar tissue, improving cellular structure and tensile stability, and more.
There may be mild discomfort or soreness associated with the procedure, but no anesthesia is required and the vast majority of patients tolerate it extremely well.
Pain reduction generally comes very quickly after a session. Your range of motion and muscle tone also noticeably improves and continues to improve after multiple sessions. Each individual session lasts only about 10 minutes, and a typical treatment course involves a total of 4-6 weekly sessions.
MLS Laser Therapy
Multiwave-locked system (MLS) laser therapy uses a synchronized pair of robotically-controlled therapeutic lasers to trigger rapid pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, and accelerated cellular regeneration. The lasers are precisely tuned to specific wavelengths so that the photon energy can be absorbed and harnessed by your cells.
MLS laser therapy is a great option not only for athletes struggling with chronic inflammatory pain, but also those looking to heal quickly after a traumatic soft tissue injury, or even after a surgery. It is completely painless and requires no medications or anesthesia, has no known side effects, and can be combined with virtually any other treatment.
Sessions tend to last 10-15 minutes on average, and most patience begin to notice significant improvement after 1-3 appointments. A typical treatment course requires 6-12 total sessions, depending on the injury.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
In addition to red and white blood cells, your blood contains plasma (the fluid substance that these cells “swim” in) and tiny cellular fragments called platelets. The primary function of platelets is to form clots to close wounds, but they’re also packed with growth factors and other protein and nutrients that play a crucial role in tissue healing and regeneration.
During PRP therapy, we draw a small sample of your blood, then spin it to separate out all the components. The plasma and platelets are recombined to create a high concentration mixture of platelets, which is then injected into injured tissues. This gives your cells a big supply of what they need to accelerate the healing process.
Amniotic Stem Cell Injections
Amniotic stem cells are unique in the human body. “Normal” cells can only create copies of themselves, while stem cells can grow into any kind of cell or tissue the body might need at a given time.
Unfortunately, sometimes after a significant enough injury, your injured tissues aren’t able to “recruit” enough nearby stem cells to fully repair and regenerate. Fortunately, we can extract some of your body’s own stem cells from high-concentration areas and inject them directly where they’re needed, triggering much faster and more complete healing.
Prolotherapy is another kind of injection therapy. Essentially, it uses a solution of safe, natural ingredients to “irritate” the damaged joint or tissue just enough to trigger an inflammatory response and trigger a healing response from nearby cells.
A prolotherapy solution may include a mix of dextrose (a type of sugar), fatty acids, numbing agents, or even stem cells and platelet rich plasma. The right solution, then, can offer additional regenerative and analgesic effects in addition to triggering inflammation. The exact balance of ingredients may be adjusted depending on the location and severity of the injury.
