Most people turn to medication and surgery to deal with such injuries, and they tend to live their days through a fog of either pain or medication, depending on the day. Dr. Heidi Seifert, however, believes in a multidisciplinary approach to treating chronic and acute pain, providing minimally-invasive injections and physical therapy to promote cellular regeneration and alleviate pain without the need for medication.
Injections – rotator cuff and musculoskeletal
Steroids can effectively reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and restore mobility to injured body parts, including your rotator cuff and other musculoskeletal injuries. These injections can also be used diagnostically, reducing generalized discomfort and allowing doctors to pinpoint the exact source of your pain. Steroidal injections are effective treatments for:
- Acute and long-term injuries
- Tendonitis (inflammation of the tendons
- surrounding a joint)
- Bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled sac that surrounds a joint and allows for movement without friction)
- Ligament injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
Anesthetic injections into bundles of nerves can also effectively alleviate pain and assist in a correct diagnosis.
Regenerative – rotator cuff and musculoskeletal
Dr. Seifert’s regenerative therapies enhance your body’s natural ability to repair and regenerate damaged cells in your body, which can be a particularly effective treatment for your musculoskeletal system and rotator cuff. Our regenerative therapies stimulate your body’s recreation of bone mass, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and muscles. This treatment not only reduces pain, but it also treats the underlying causes of your pain and speeds healing.
You can expect a customized treatment plan tailor-made for you that may include PRP therapy, prolotherapy, and other highly-effective stem-cell-based treatments.
