Do you remember when you used to bounce back from injury? When simple movements didnâ€™t hurt? Let us help you remember.Â Before you consider an expensive and invasive surgery that may leave you worse than you when you started.
Weâ€™re excited to offer injection reparative therapy to those suffering from joint, tendon, or ligament pain and injuries in Vancouver WA. Whether youâ€™ve suffered an acute injury or have a stubborn, chronic source of pain, injection therapyÂ can help you be back to being active, and many report significant improvement or complete resolution of pain.
What isÂ injection therapy for joints, tendons, and ligaments?
At Northwest Lifestyle Health, we practice two categories of injection therapy â€“ PRP and AmnioFixÂ®. Both categories of injection therapy treatÂ weakened joints, tendons, and ligaments.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. With PRP Injection Therapy, we use your bodyâ€™s own blood plasma to isolate platelets. Your platelets are rich in activators and growth factors that, when injected to the site of your injury, stimulate your bodyâ€™s ability to regenerate and heal.
AmnioFixÂ® is an FDA-approved injection therapy that works much the same way as PRP, but using Human Chorioamnionic Membrane dCHAM. Human amniotic tissue is full of growth factors. When injected to the site of an injury, the stem cells cause your own stem cells to migrate to the site of injury and start the bodyâ€™s own healing processes.
What types of joint, ligament, or tendon pain can benefit from injection therapy?
Injection therapyÂ can be very effective in healing chronic or acute musculoskeletal pain–even pain that doesn’t respond to anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, or chiropractic treatmentsâ€”including:
- Spinal Pain
- Arthritis Joint Pain
- Rotator Cuff Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Tendinitis and Tendon Tears
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
Is injection therapyÂ safe for my joints, ligaments, and tendons?
Injection therapyÂ been in use since the 1930s, and the more recent advances of PRP Injection Therapy and AmnioFixÂ® are also both considered safe. Because PRP Injection Therapy uses your bodyâ€™s own platelets, you donâ€™t risk an allergic reaction.
AmnioFixÂ® is pure and sterile and conforms to the requirements specified in the FDAâ€™s Good Tissue Practice regulations and in the standards of the American Association of Tissue Banks. It is also has no tissue that would cause an allergic reaction when injected.
Which type of injection therapyÂ is best for me?
Our trained providerÂ will conduct an initial evaluation to determine if PRP, AmnioFixÂ® or a combination of both injection therapies will be right for you.
How many injectionÂ treatments will I need?
One of the things that makes injection treatmentsÂ so remarkable is how fast it works to eliminate pain. In our experience, even people who have suffered for a year, and whoâ€™ve tried other treatmentsâ€”including steroid injections, physical therapy, and chiropracticâ€”have experienced over 90% improvement after one treatment of AmnoFixÂ® or PRP injection.
