Growth Factor Injections For Disc and Joint Pain

Category: Blog

Do you have painful joints such as a knee, or painful degenerative spinal discs, and traditional methods have not provided relief? PM&R Associates offers a new feature for those patients who are looking for better results or for those who don’t respond to platelet-rich plasma therapy. The new treatment option is the injection of concentrated growth factors.

These concentrated growth factors are processed from the lining of a placenta and they can help to signal or recruit your own stem cells to help in healing a variety of tissues such as tendons, ligaments and muscles. These growth factors have been sterilized from all disease including hepatitis and aids and are FDA approved for injection into humans. They work better than PRP therapy.

Benefits Include:

  • Reduction of scar tissue formation
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Enhances healing
