At Progressive Rehabilitation Medicine, we are experienced in helping patients maximize their capabilities while assisting patients adapt and improve their weaknesses. We are proud to specialize in many alternative pain management techniques to keep our patients from requiring surgery to treat their condition.
Alternative Pain Management Techniques To Try
Here are just a few alternative pain management techniques to consider when you book an appointment with us.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy
Until recently, treatment options for osteoarthritis or joint pain were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were the only treatment options. Stem cell injections are now available, and not only can they alleviate pain, but may offer an option for regenerating some tissues and/or joints. The best option for anyone would be to come in for a consultation to see a) if stem cell therapy may be a viable option b) to assess the level of pain or injury to see what is the best course of action.
When an injury occurs, it is the stem cells that are released and summoned by the body to rebuild damaged muscle, joints, or cartilage. By injecting these stem cells directly into the damaged area, the idea is that it accelerates the body’s natural healing process.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Drug free, pain relief is the goal for most of us. Now we can offer you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain. Five to ten brief treatments with this powerful laser is all it takes to realize life changing results.
The LCT-1000 works by flooding the tissues with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take just a few minutes, however the therapeutic effect continues to soothe and heal long after you leave the office.
It’s difficult for intervertebral discs to heal when they are constantly under pressure – even when the body is resting. However, with DOC Decompression, the pressure inside the discs can be reduced by gently separating or distracting the injured spinal segments.
DOC Decompression is a non-surgical, drug-free procedure for bulging and herniated discs, radiating leg pain, numbness in the arms, sciatica, spinal stenosis, disc degeneration and facet syndrome.
The Miracle Wave® is an FDA-registered treatment that has been recognized as an effective solution for helping to treat musculoskeletal pain in humans. With our Miracle Wave® Hi-Puls HP50 Unit, we are on the forefront of using non-invasive acoustic technology to help patients with their pain without any needles or surgery.
Our Miracle Wave® unit works by sending low-energy pulses into the affected area of the body. These acoustic pressure waves stimulate the body to begin the healing process on its own. Patients have reported experiencing results of relief almost immediately after the procedure. After just 3 to 5 sessions at a rate of one a week, patients have reported being free of pain after just weeks, as the body has begun and completed its healing process.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has the extraordinary ability to improve your quality of life when standard medicine is simply not enough or as a supplement to traditional medicine. HBOT could be your answer to recovery. HBOT is the only non-hormonal therapy approved by the FDA for biologically repairing and regenerating human tissue.
We offer this therapy on its own and in conjunction with other treatments for a more cohesive, effective and long-term result for many conditions.
