STEM CELL INJECTION THERAPIES

Corticosteroid injections (CSI) are "tried and true" injections that often relieve joint, tendon, and ligament pain. CSI medications are derived from cortisol, a natural steroid found in the body. CSI medications suppress inflammation, the leading cause of bone and joint pain and swelling. CSI have an excellent safety profile and may be repeated if effective.

03.

PLASMA RICH PROTEIN (PRP) TREATMENT

Blood has molecules in it that promote tissue healing. Often times an athlete wants to heal faster. Dr. Gottschalk will draw a patient's blood, process the blood in a centrifuge, and remove a concentrated volume of those healing molecules. This hyper-concentrated solution is injected at the site of tissue damage in order to promote rapid tissue healing. PRP may also be used to promote joint healing in degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis.

VISCOSUPPLEMENT

"GEL" INJECTIONS

Most joints have an natural "motor oil" called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid helps lubricate joints. As we age, joints make this fluid less well. A couple of different companies have produced viscosupplement injections (VSI). VSI medications can be thought of as synthetic "motor oil" to help lubricate joints. VSIs are most commonly used in knee joints.

TESTIMONIAL FROM ONE OF OUR PATIENTS.

Dr Gottschalk is one of a kind. He explained my knee injury in a way I could actually understand. It was so nice to finally have a doctor spend time explaining all the different nonsurgical treatment options from simple steroid & gel injections, physical therapy, to new treatments like platelet rich plasma (PRP) & stem cell injections. I highly recommend Dr. Gottschalk to anyone suffering from a hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow or hand injury. I was also able to get an appointment within a day of calling!

 

Thank you Dr. Gottschalk!
