On a daily basis you might not give much thought to how remarkable your body is – especially with regards to its ability to heal. When muscles are strained, skin is cut, or bones break, your body automatically works to repair the damage. The healing processes begin almost immediately.
Of course, it takes time to heal. Your body has a finite amount of resources available at its disposal. While the body makes the most of those resources, there are options to help speed things along.
One of the many areas we are pleased to raise the bar with in regards to medical treatment is the area of regenerative medicine. We offer an array of advanced practices and equipment, including regenerative options like Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy. These advanced therapies all can boost your body’s natural healing processes in different ways. Let’s take a closer look at each of them:
- EPAT – This is a highly-effective treatment method wherein a proprietary set of unique acoustic pressure waves are employed in a specific manner to enhance blood circulation, stimulate metabolism, and accelerate the healing process at the cellular level. EPAT is scientifically proven, completely safe, and constitutes an economical option for quicker healing.
- PRP – World-class athletes have been using platelet rich plasma injections for years now to recover from sports injuries faster so they can return to competition. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to receive the benefits of PRP therapy – you just need to come see us! When you do, we use your body’s own platelet-derived growth factors to enhance tissue healing. To do so, we start with a sample of your own blood being withdrawn. From there, we use a centrifuge to separate platelets into a more concentrated product, which is then injected into the site of the injury.
- MLS laser therapy – The increased use of lasers in the field of medicine over the past couple of decades has led to revolutionary injury treatment. The concentrated light beams reach down to damaged tissue, where they deliver energy that stimulates cellular regeneration and rejuvenation. Along with enhanced healing, this therapy also reduces inflammation in the affected area.
