Jeff Ericksen, MD, an expert in Regenerative Medicine at the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine in McLean, Virginia, describes the effectiveness of using Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection Therapy, and Stem-Cell Therapy to treat joint, tendon and muscle pain caused by injury, arthritis or other diseases. These non-surgical therapies amplify the body’s own healing power, enabling a new joint or muscle injury or a longstanding pain condition to heal more quickly and completely. For example, prolotherapy has been found to be effective in treating plantar fasciitis or foot pain, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, degenerative disc disease, hip pain and some migraine headaches. Whether your condition is best treated with Dextrose Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma or Stem-Cell Injections, depends upon your unique health circumstances.
