At Phoenix Joint and Spine Regeneration, our main goal is to provide our patients with superior care and treatments for alleviating pain and discomfort without the need for invasive surgery, To better meet this goal, Dr. Angelo Mattalino and his staff take a multifaceted approach when it comes to medicine by incorporating a range of specialized alternatives to surgery.
Alternatives to Surgery Treatment Options
Our collection of alternatives to surgery include:
Viscosupplementation is an innovative treatment that is intended for patients who are suffering from joint pain. Treatments can help restore and smooth joint movement for improved and pain-free functionality. Viscosupplementation is non-surgical and minimally-invasive. The process incorporates the use of a hyaluronic acid-based injectable. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body. The hyaluronic acid is in the form of a gel, which is delivered to the affected joints in order to lubricate them. Once applied, this ultra-lubricating gel works to improve the hydration, elasticity, and flexibility of the joints.
An advanced injectable known as Orthovisc® is often used for this procedure. This gel-like substance effectively mimics fluids and substances naturally found in the body for optimal results.
Regenerative Medicine Injections – PRP / Stem Cells
Regenerative Medicine Injections using PRP and stem cells are specialized treatments designed to correct musculoskeletal pain in areas such as joints, back pain, muscle pain, partial muscle tears, and more. Treatments utilize the natural healing benefits of the patient’s own platelet rich plasma, PRP, and amniotic growth factors and stem cells from bone marrow – delivered to the affected area. These ultra-healing factors work activate a cellular response within the body that promotes the natural healing processes in the treated area. In response, damaged tissue is repaired, collagen production is activated, and the regeneration of new and healthy tissue is encouraged. In the time following treatment, you can continue notice improvements in movement and discomfort as the area continues to be naturally healed.
Physical therapy is a service designed to help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. Physical therapists work one-on-one with patients to restore and promote fitness and wellness for improved overall health. Physical therapy is beneficial for patients who are experiencing symptoms ranging from minor injuries to traumatic injuries. With physical therapy over a period of time, patients are able to strengthen their bodies and endurance.
