Are you one of the 30% of Americans who suffers from acute or chronic joint pain at least once a month? Joint pain can be caused by a number of different things, including osteoarthritis, injury, prolonged abnormal posture, or repetitive motion.

Joint and Limb Pain Reviews
"I have been seeing predominantly Dr Wolff and Shelia Janisch for several years. Most recently with debilitating SI joint pain after two fusion revisions. I’m forever grateful to Southwest Spine team for helping me to heal. I thought the relentless shooting pain through my foot would never tone down to a level 5 pain. I’m grateful we persisted through several medications and nerve blocks to manage my pain."- C.R. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2020
"Below the waist I am an orthopedic mess. I've had several back injections from Spine and Sports specifically Dr. Wolff. I've had knee injections. I've had hip injections. All are arthritic conditions and wear conditions that have been quite painful. Dr. Wolff and his staff particularly Sheila Janisch have been absolutely spectacular in their care and their friendliness."- C.D. / Google / Jul 16, 2020
Where Lower Back Pain Begins
PRP for Joint Pain
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, effective and all-natural way to heal damaged joints, including shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, fingers, and more. PRP consists of a small sample of your own blood, spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and then injected into the injured area. Medical research and intensive studies are leading the way to the tremendous benefits offered by PRP for patients suffering from low back pain, with the goal of enhancing the body’s ability to naturally heal itself.
Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain
Stem cell therapy is another nonsurgical alternative to pain management that has been practiced since the early 1990s and uses the body’s own stem cells to treat all manner of degenerative conditions, including joint pain. Adult stem cells, collected from reservoirs in the bone marrow and adipose tissue, can be transferred directly into the site of the joint or disc injury safely and effectively in an outpatient facility, without resorting to surgery. Stem cell therapy has been proving to be extremely effective and is quickly increasing in popularity among patients of all ages.
