Biologics are genetically engineered proteins created from microorganisms,
human, or animal genes. This technique is at the cutting edge of biomedical
research and has been found to treat a number of medical issues including
orthopedic conditions. Rather than using drugs to treat the entire immune
system, biologics target specific areas for more efficient treatment.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a non-operative treatment designed
to relieve pain from orthopedic injuries including arthritis and ligament
tears. PRP uses human blood separated to produce concentrated platelets
which are then injected straight into the treatment area. These platelets
which contain growth factor proteins are a crucial component to clotting
blood and healing musculoskeletal conditions. Often used in athletic injuries,
PCP is used to speed up the healing process and minimize pain.

Joint Fluid Therapy
Joint Fluid Therapy is the replacement of natural fluids that are found
in joints. This injection creates joint lubrication and cushioning to
help reduce pain from orthopedic conditions and deterioration of the cartilage
that lines our joints. This fluid is injected straight into the treatment
area to relieve pain and improve joint mobility.
