Regenerative injection therapy for tendons, ligaments, muscles and spine conditions.
About Regenerative Injection Therapies (RIT)
Regenerative injections broadly deals with the use of biologic materials to enhance the body’s own repair mechanisms to help heal previously non-reparable tissues. The goal of these non-surgical procedures is to help heal the source of pain, not to simply mask it. The exact mechanism is evolving, but science points toward enhancing and stimulating healing and stabilizing factors of the local tissues.
Regenerative injection treatments offer a viable alternative for individuals considering elective orthopedic surgery or joint replacement due to arthritis or injury. Patients experience very little down time and they typically avoid the long, painful rehabilitation periods that can follow surgery. Since 2014, Regenerative Spine & Musculoskeletal Medicine has provided state of the art regenerative cellular therapies to help patients find relief from pain without invasive surgeries.
What parts of the body can benefit from regenerative treatments?
Spinal procedures can be performed with dextrose, platelet/growth factors, or cellular therapy for those who wish to avoid the effects of steroids. Epidural nerve blocks, spine ligaments, facet joint, sacroiliac joint and intervertebral disc injections with platelets/growth factors may be performed. The injection is performed in the same manner as conventional spine injections with the use of x-ray guidance to ensure accurate placement of the treatment.
Joint, tendon, ligament, muscle Injections:
Musculoskeletal injections can be performed with dextrose, platelet/growth factors, or cellular therapy for those who wish to avoid the effects of steroids. Whenever appropriate the injection is performed with the use of x-ray or ultrasound guidance along with full safety and sterile precautions.

Will insurance cover my Regenerative Injection?
Insurance companies will not pay for the cost of the Regenerative treatment. The cost of your injection can be discussed after your visit once you and the provider have decided on the most appropriate treatment option for you.
