Treatment Options

We offer a range of targeted treatments to address ligament and tendon injuries. Each therapy is designed to enhance your body's natural healing abilities and ensure the best fit for your unique health needs, promoting quicker recovery and more effective results. Treatment options include:

PRP Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes the healing components in your blood to repair damaged ligaments and tendons. It is designed to rapidly alleviate pain and improve the function of injured tissues, offering a fast, effective, and non-invasive solution for those suffering from ligament and tendon injuries. The process involves drawing a bit of your blood, isolating your platelets in a centrifuge, then injecting them into the injured area, kickstarting your body’s natural repair processes. Before the injection, we may apply a local anesthetic to make the experience as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the body part being treated. You may experience some initial tenderness for the first few days after treatment. This is normal and signals that the healing process has begun.

Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy employs short chains of amino acids known as peptides to enhance tissue regeneration and reduce inflammation. This therapy is designed to repair and strengthen injured ligaments and tendons. The treatment process involves administering specific peptides that trigger biological processes essential for tissue recovery. Like PRP, this method is non-surgical and focuses on harnessing your body’s own regenerative capabilities. Each session is carefully planned to align with your individual recovery goals, making your path to wellness both personalized and progressive. Patients often notice decreased pain and a substantial improvement in joint functionality after peptide therapy.
