Platelete-rich Plasma injections (PRP) is a quickly growing therapeutic procedure for both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. PRP uses the patients own blood platelets and injects them back into the patients injured tissue to help the body naturally health itself.
Stem cells have been shown to naturally promote the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue.
Here at Woodlands Medical it is important for us to stay on top of new medical procedures that will enhance our patients quality of care.
We perform injections of both Joint & Soft tissue injections anti-inflammatory medications in-house. Some of our patients prefer non-steroid injections, as they do not carry the side effects of typical Joint & Soft tissue injections. These side effects can include, but are not limited to the following: bloating, increased blood sugar, weight gain, and breakdown of muscle.
One of the Joint & Soft tissue injections we offer is Sarapin, a plant-based medication derived from the pitcher plant. Sarapin reduces inflammation without any of the harmful side effects of typical steroid injections. Toxicity tests report that Sarapin is harmless, and it has been utilized by doctors for pain management for more than 70 years with no adverse events reported.
