How Are Joint and Limb Pain Treated?

At Southwest Spine and Sports, we believe in treating back and neck pain with minimally invasive, regenerative techniques that can treat pain with an eye to the future instead of alleviating pain in the short term. Many of these treatments use your body’s own cells or tissues, thereby avoiding the risks of traditional therapies and making surgery much less likely. Some of the methods we use at our Scottsdale, AZ facility include:

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  • Biologic Therapies
  • Growth factor injections

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.

Therapy for Joint Pain

The latest scientific advancements in regenerative medicine, are another nonsurgical alternative to pain management that has been practiced since the early 1990s and uses the body’s own biologics to treat all manner of degenerative conditions, including joint pain. Biologics therapy can be transferred directly into the site of the joint or disc injury safely and effectively in an outpatient facility, without resorting to surgery. The latest scientific advancements in regenerative medicine has been proven to be extremely effective and is quickly increasing in popularity among patients of all ages.
