As a regenerative medicine specialist, my clients want to know one thing. "Will Injection Therapy work for me?" Answering this question requires an in-depth understanding of how injection therapy works and indications for use. It also requires a comprehensive review and examination of the client’s illness or injury.
What is Injection Therapy?
Injection Therapy is created using a clients own blood. The process involves obtaining a blood sample from the client and separating blood platelets from the rest of the sample. Once separated, the platelets are concentrated and injected back into the client’s body at the site of injury or irritation.
How Does Injection Therapy Work?
When injected, platelets break down and release human growth factor. The highly concentrated growth factor “kickstarts” the client’s natural healing process. Clients typically notice a significant improvement in their symptoms in approximately 6 weeks, with full effect at 3 months. While one injection is often sufficient, a series of 3 injections may be required.
What are the Indications for Injection Therapy?
Scientific evidence in support of Injection Therapy is substantial. Injection Therapy is indicated in the use of tennis elbow, golfers elbow, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries and hamstring tears. There is also clear scientific evidence supporting the use of Injection Therapy in the management of hip and knee arthritis.
