Originating in Asia centuries ago, acupuncture is the ancient practice of using thin needles at strategic points on the body to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue for healing. It is used to relieve pain and discomfort by boosting your body’s natural painkillers and increasing blood flow.

Acupuncture is used to treat many types of pain including dental pain, fibromyalgia, lower back pain, neck pain and headaches, including tension and migraine headaches.

Discography involves the injection of X-ray dye into a disc in a patient’s spine to see if that disc is abnormal and a source of pain. This is a diagnostic test only. Read More

During the discography procedure, dye is injected into one disc at a time to help identify which lumbar discs are generating pain. CT scans are taken to track the movement of the dye which helps determine the location of any torn, bulged or scarred discs.

Results are then used to determine next steps in appropriate treatment. Discography can be a useful diagnostic tool to help decide how to treat pain in the back as well as the groin, hip or leg.

This involves the injection of growth stimulants into degenerated and painful spinal discs. This can stimulate healing within the discs and reduce back pain associated with degenerative disc disease. Read More

Intradiscal PRP therapy involves an injection of special plasma, made out of the patient’s own blood, into painful spinal discs. First, blood is taken from the patient and separated into its components. Then the platelet-rich part of the blood is injected into the painful area.

Platelets are blood components containing growth factors that play a major role in the body’s ability to heal itself. PRP therapy releases growth factors that promote the body’s natural healing response and mobilize stem cells to injured and damaged tissue to repair and rebuild it.

PRP injections have been shown to relieve acute and chronic pain, including lower back pain. It accelerates healing of injured tissues and joints which helps increase strength and mobility.

Intradiscal prolotherapy involves repeated injections of a safe, but slightly irritating solution into the affected area. This stimulates the body’s natural response to repair itself and triggers the production of new, healthy connective tissue, strengthening the injured or damaged area. It encourages growth of healthy cells and an eventual reduction in pain.

Intradiscal prolotherapy treatment is commonly used to relieve pain from degenerative disc disease.
Multiple treatments at regular intervals encourage additional tissue growth to restore and strengthen the affected area.

In some cases, both PRP and prolotherapy treatments are used together to maximize benefits.
