Prolotherapy at our Cherry Hill, New Jersey Office
Prolotherapy, (proliferative therapy), also referred to as Sclerotherapy or Reconstructive Injection Therapy (RIT), is a non-surgical, orthopedic procedure to treat pain to tendons, joints, and ligaments caused by injury or arthritis.
It is a natural approach in which injections are applied into the specific problem area in order to stimulate cell signals that, in turn, send a message to the immune system to naturally repair the joint or ligament. Prolotherapy is used to treat pain and permanently stabilize joints by targeting the actual cause of the damage – without surgery, unlike other approaches that only temporarily provide relief to the damaged area.
Osteoarthritis Treatment Plan – American Family Physician
A typical way to treat Osteoarthritis from the medical journal American Family Physician, Jan 2012. Pharmacologic treatment begins with aspirin, then a step-up to NSAIDs. Then surgery. Here we offer repair of damaged knees with Prolotherapy, PRP, and Stem Cell therapy. Non-surgical approaches that do not leave our patients dependant on pain-killers top get through their day.
Stem cell therapy for cartilage repair
Recent studies provide strong evidence for the use of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy in curing cartilage related disorders. Dr. Allan Magaziner and Dr. Scott Greenberg are among only a handful of doctors in the United States who have been trained to use stem cell therapy to treat the symptoms of cartilage damage, osteoarthritis, musculoskeletal sports injuries, including tendonitis, torn meniscus and chronic neck, back, knee and hip pain, rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, epicondylitis (tennis elbow).
Knee Problems in Teenage Soccer Players
Many parents call our office about making an appointment for their player’s knee pain. One of the first things they ask is “Should we I get an MRI?”
What is Torn Meniscus?
A tear of a meniscus is a rupturing of one or more of the fibrocartilage strips in the knee called menisci. Menisci can be torn during mild activities, such as walking or squatting, or by traumatic force encountered in sports or other forms of physical exertion. The traumatic action is most often a twisting movement at the knee while the leg is bent. In older adults, the meniscus can be damaged following prolonged “wear and tear” (typically referred to as a degenerative tear).
Pain-Killers are not the long-term answer for knee pain
Chronic pain is a condition that affects many people. Many hope to manage that pain with over-the-counter painkillers like Motrin or Tylenol or narcotics like oxycodone. But at the Magaziner Center for Wellness, there are better ways.
