Tendon, ligament, and joint injuries can affect your daily and recreational activities. Living with pain is not the answer. For decades we have treated patients with analgesics/nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroids to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, this method of treatment does very little to help with the normal healing process. In fact, NSAIDs and corticosteroids have some side effects that inhibit the healing progress by thinning the joint cartilage and weakening the ligaments of the joint.
With the recent emergence of orthopedic regenerative medicine there is a new natural alternative to just blocking or relieving pain. Dr. Edward S. Magaziner of North Brunswick is a pioneer in the field of regenerative orthopedic medicine using prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and stem cell grafts since 2001. He has lectured extensively and has taught others on this groundbreaking technique. He is well known around the country in his field and is considered by many to be one of the top pain management physicians in the New Jersey region.
Dr. Magaziner explains: “PRP and stem cell treatments have grown increasingly common in the sports medicine world in recent years. During a PRP procedure the patient’s blood is drawn and put in a centrifuge to separate out platelet-containing plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is then injected back into the patient’s injury. PRP treatment is thought to accelerate and/or maximize the signals an injury site sends to the body in order to continue the healing process. Adult stem cells are able to grow and become a cell for a specific tissue or organ, according to the National Institutes of Health.”
We have successfully treated thousands of patients with regenerative medicine for joint, tendon, and ligament injuries including patients with rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, wrist pain, neck pain, back pain, joint pain, and pain from arthritis. These are safe procedures with no serious side effects.
