Human Cell Tissue Product Joint Injections Q & A

What are human cell tissue product joint injections?

Human cell tissue product joint injections are a type of nonsurgical orthopedic treatment that uses your body’s own growth factors to promote healing following an accident or sports-related injury. 

When performed by a trained and qualified medical professional like those at IHS Medical Group, human cell tissue product joint injections can strengthen damaged joints and repair connective tissue, including ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.

What types of human cell tissue product joint injections do you offer?

The team at IHS Medical Group offers a comprehensive suite of human cell tissue product joint injections, including:

Trigger point injections

Trigger points are painful knots of muscle that form under the surface of your skin. If you’re stressed out or unable to relax, trigger points can become permanent and cause chronic pain. During a trigger point injection (TPI) procedure, your IHS Medical Group provider administers injections of corticosteroids and a local anesthetic. This procedure takes less than 30 minutes and provides almost instant relief. 

Prolotherapy 

Prolotherapy is another type of human cell tissue product medicine that uses injections to “trick” your body into repairing damaged joints and connective tissue. During prolotherapy, your provider administers a series of injections that trigger a mild inflammatory process. Ultimately, this causes your tendon and muscle fibers to tighten, encouraging the growth of newer, healthier soft tissue. 

Who is a good candidate for human cell tissue product joint injections?

Anyone who is suffering from chronic joint pain or the effects of a sports-related injury can benefit from human cell tissue product joint injections. 

Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, the team at IHS Medical Group can formulate a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs. 

Together, they will work with you to develop a nonsurgical, minimally invasive approach that improves your quality of life and reduces your pain. Request your appointment today, call or click the provided link.
