How is Joint and Back Pain Treated?
At Vitality Ageless Center, we treat joint and back pain naturally without pain medications or invasive surgeries. In many cases, Dr. Grimsley uses naturally-produced cells from areas of your body to enhance the healing process and ease back pain. Examples of joint and back pain treatments we offer include:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes the body’s natural healing process to promote tissue repair. Dr. Grimsley will draw a sample of your blood and put it into a centrifuge, separating platelets from other blood components. The concentration of platelets will then be injected into your damaged ligaments, cartilage, and tendons to accelerate healing.
Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cells are naturally found in your body and have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types. Dr. Grimsley can extract stem cells from your body and concentrate them into an injection that can ease back pain, enhance healing for injured bones, ligaments, and tendons, and restore joint strength and mobility with very little downtime — and no medications.
The professional team at Vitality Ageless Center specializes in chiropractic care, using spinal manipulation and adjustments to improve posture and ease back pain. During the procedure, Dr. Grimsley will place you in a specific position depending on the treatment area and apply controlled, sudden force to a joint to push it back into its proper place.
SUPARTZ FX™ Injections
SUPARTZ FX is a non-surgical therapy that uses injections of sodium hyaluronate, a form of hyaluronic acid, to add additional lubrication to knee joints and alleviate pain caused by osteoarthritis. The in-office procedure starts with a local anesthetic to numb the knee. Dr. Grimsley will remove the existing fluid in your knee and inject SUPARTZ FX into the knee joint space. SUPARTZ FX therapy is a great way to relieve knee pain, improve mobility, and help you return to your normal day-to-day activities.
