RT-Newest Medical Treatments for Chronic Pain, Arthritis & Sports Injury
Permanent Cure Without Surgery
By: Yibing Li, MD, ABPMR, ABPM

What is a Regenerative Therapy?
They are spectrum of newest therapeutic techniques used to naturally treat & heal the cause of painful condition rather than masking the symptom. RT may stimulate & accelerate your own body's natural ability to heal itself. Recently numerous medical research studies proved the two new medical breakthrough treatments and platelet rich plasma injection, are highly effective for treating all kinds of arthritis and sport injuries without surgery or invasive procedures. And in fact, they are the by far the only medical treatments to promote ultimate natural healing and permanent pain relief.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patient's own blood to possibly rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage. Platelets normally circulate within the blood stream and are responsible for blood clotting and initiating the healing response in an acute injury. PRP therapy allows us to harvest the patient's own platelets into the site of injury to help initiate healing and the likely improvement of function. Numerous studies showed PRP treatment has very positive effects in patients with chronic pain by healing the damaged tissues, diminishing pain and in turn improving quality of life.

Commonly treated conditions include, but not limited to the following:
  • Shoulder Pain (rotator cuff tear & tendinitis)
  • Elbow Pain (tennis elbow or golfer's elbow)
  • Wrist & Hand Pain
  • Hip Pain (arthritis, tendinitis and weakness)
  • Knee Pain (ligament laxity, meniscus tear)
  • Foot & Ankle Pain (plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis or tear)
  • Osteoarthritis & all degenerative joint diseases, such as shoulder, hip, knee, ankle joints etc.
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Unhealed or Open Wounds

The Procedure Is Safe and Simple.
