Regenerative Injection Therapy

Regenerative injection therapies (RIT) are used to address chronic unhealed injuries involving cartilage, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. 

All things regenerative help to initiate your bodies natural healing response via promoting wound healing. Regenerative injection therapy is used to treat joints and chronic pain using a natural solution to make your body encourage healing. Dr. Moffitt’s regenerative ladder will help determine the best approach to your chronic pain. Dr. Moffitt national leading expert in regenerative medicine and has treated many conditions with great success.

Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone Therapy: Injection of ozonated oxygen into painful areas to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This treatment is like prolotherapy but is less painful and less comprehensive. A Prolozone injection contains ozone and nutrients, which are believed to bypass the inflammatory response and directly stimulate a healing response without triggering inflammation. Anti-inflammatory medications are permitted as necessary following injection.

Prolo Therapy

Prolotherapy: Prolotherapy, also known as regenerative therapy, has been used for more than 40 years as an injection technique to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Proliferant (growth promoting) and irritant solutions are injected in multiple areas in and around the injured joint or body part to stimulate the body to respond through inflammation, which brings new blood cells, nutrients, and the body’s natural healing response. Injections can be painful and might cause swelling. This pain and swelling must not be treated with anti-inflammatory medicine, as this may interfere with the body’s response to the injection.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): PRP is a technique where a solution derived from the patient’s own blood sample, injecting it into an injured area to stimulate healing and repair. Platelet rich plasma is derived from a normal blood sample that is spun in a centrifuge. This concentrated plasma contains powerful healing properties and is rich in growth factors. These naturally occurring growth factors in the PRP are very similar to undifferentiated cells, also known as stem cells. Injection of PRP is thought to improve and quicken the recovery and healing from acute injuries.

Let’s Make Things Happen

Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones within the joint. When ligaments become weak or injured they may not heal to their original strength. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited and therefore, healing is slow and not always complete. Ligaments are highly rich in nerves and can be a source of pain that can often be helped with a technique called neural prolotherapy.

Tendons are the tissue that connect muscles to bones and in the same manner, may also become injured and cause pain.

Prolotherapy increases circulation to the affected area and thus regenerative growth factors are delivered to the injury as wastes are removed. Prolotherapy has also been shown to regenerate cartilage and meniscus.
