The physicians at Houston Spine and Sports Medicine are proud to offer the latest non-surgical treatments and procedures for sports injuries and chronic painful orthopedic conditions to encourage your body’s natural regenerative healing processes. After a thorough initial exam to gather facts about your conditions, physicians will order appropriate further diagnostic testing as needed to best determine a specific treatment plan for you. The doctors are experts in using musculoskeletal ultrasound for diagnostics and for guidance with advanced injection techniques. Some of the treatments the physicians may consider are:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an emerging biologic tool in orthopedic and regenerative medicine. Platelets are rich in many different growth factors. These growth factors help attract other repair cells to the injured area. These repair cells stimulate the healing process. Click here to read more.
Prolotherapy or Regenerative Injection Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that heals ligaments, tendons, tissue tears, and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. The injections promote collagen repair which is a natural body protein necessary for the formation of new connective tissue – the tissue that holds our skeletal structure together.
