Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is considered a first-line non-surgical treatment to muscle or joint injuries that cause pain and/or dysfunction. Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from a patient's own blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells. The yellow plasma has a concentrated amount of platelets that are used to treat injuries.
Prolotherapy is a 60 year old injection technique, targeting hypermobile joints and/or pain related to ligament or tendon attachments to bones. A controlled injury is induced in these areas to encourage the ligament or tendon to heal in a shortened position.
Osteopathic manipulation is a hands-on treatment beginning with an evaluation of your full body. Dr. Jennifer Stebbing uses her hands to diagnose and treat pain, tightness and limitations in motion in virtually any joint or area of the body.
