Using advanced methods, your body’s ability to restore naturally can be unlocked, even if you’ve been dealing with chronic issues for years.

Repairing the Damage

As our lifestyles become more and more sedentary, our bodies are losing their ability to move and function as they’re supposed to. When that happens, chronic issues like osteoarthritis worsen, spreading to joints along the spine, and in the feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, and wrists.

Joint injections can help improve major or minor chronic joint conditions. There are several types of injections we provide at The Wellness Connection including:

Injections of a local anesthetic agent into single or multiple muscle groups that have been overworked to compensate for an area of injury. Often given in the low back, neck, and shoulders to relax muscle groups and shut down pain sources to relieve muscle spasms, tendinitis, etc. Trigger point therapy is a form of manual therapy used to alleviate pain and tension in the body. It involves applying pressure to specific areas of muscle tissue, known as trigger points, which are characterized by knots or tight bands of muscle fibers.

Uses the patient’s own blood to harvest platelets which are injected in the joint to reduce inflammation and increase growth factors to speed healing. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a blood product harvested from a simple blood draw and placed in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the serum. The platelets settle in the bottom layer of the serum and are collected for use in the body. Once separated, the concentrated factors are three to five times higher than those normally in the bloodstream. When introduced to the damaged area, the cells receive a greatly increased degree of healing and anti-inflammatory power. Our nurse practitioner injects these immune warrior cells inside the joint using ultrasound guidance. Once there, they behave the same as if the immune system had sent them, and start to address the inflammation, infection, and trauma.

Utilizes material that can be used to produce different types of cells and address specific areas of the body. In cases where the damage is too great, PRP alone won’t give the patient the results they need. That’s when adding cellular material to the plan is the way to go. Cellular therapy uses cells harvested from donated umbilical tissue from normal cesarean births. These are unspecialized cells that can replace a variety of different specialized cells in your body such as bone, blood, muscle, and brain cells. These targeted injections of regenerative cellular material are delivered directly to damaged or injured tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing processes and promotes rapid recovery. Whether someone is suffering from chronic pain, sports injuries, or other musculoskeletal conditions, we offer personalized treatment plans can help patients achieve lasting relief and restore their quality of life.

Vitamin IVs and B-12 injections are forms of vitamin therapy used to address deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals. These therapies can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have difficulty absorbing vitamins and minerals through their diet or have conditions that prevent proper absorption. Vitamin IVs and B-12 injections can help to improve energy levels, boost the immune system, and promote healthy skin and hair.

Incredible Results Fast

The best part? With just a few injections, patients often notice incredible results. A typical course of care consists of three injections, two weeks apart, using a guided ultrasound to determine where the injections will be most effective. There’s no referral needed for care.
