At Orthopedic Physical Medicine Associates, we use regenerative medicine to attempt to restore the function and structure of damaged ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles. Your body naturally tries to heal itself in the event of trauma, but sometimes that isn’t possible, especially if the injury was to an area that has lower blood flow. This injury can lead to things like weakness, swelling, and ongoing pain. However, regenerative medicine wants to jump start the body’s natural healing process at the site of the injury and heal or replace the damaged tissue.
In order to serve our patients, Dr. Duffner and Dr. Wilgarde offer several regenerative medicine treatments at Orthopedic Physical Medicine Associates. These treatment options include but are not limited to:
- Stem Cell Injections
- Corticosteroid Injections
- Plasma Rich Injections (PRP)
- Electro-Diagnostic Medicine (EMG/NCS)
- Fitness Training
