Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are cells that can self-renew and differentiate into other cells. There are a variety of cell types that have these abilities, and cell types that most people are referring to are "progenitor" cells. Stem cell therapy has recently generated a lot of interest and has a lot of potential, but research has not yet shown us exactly how to capture the power of this potentially beneficial technology and as a result, research has not proven how to maximize efficacy.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is a light therapy used to treat various musculoskeletal injuries such as tendinitis, bursitis, sprains, and strains.
If conservative management fails to improve symptoms, advanced therapies may be considered. Advanced therapies include Platelet Rich Plasma, Corticosteroid, Viscosupplementation, Stem Cell Therapy, dHACM, and Red Light Therapy.
