Regenerative therapy injections are one of most exciting areas of pain treatment here at Rushmore Pain & Medicine. We perform two procedures that fall under this category.
The first is platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, a treatment that comes to us from the sports medicine field. The patient’s own blood is collected, then spun down twice to take it from whole blood, to plasma, and finally, to platelet-rich plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected back into the patient’s injury to spur healing and reduce pain.
Our other regenerative therapy is amniotic stem cell injections, where stem cells, collected from the amniotic sac, are used for their regenerative and healing properties in many different pain and injury scenarios.
The foetal stem cells harvested from the amniotic fluid are obtained through routine prenatal testing, causing no harm to either the mother or her expected child.
Rushmore Pain & Medicine is proud to be one of the handful of exclusive clinics throughout the Midwest offering these procedures.
