NEW in Hampton Roads: Putting to work a concentration of your OWN stem cells
At the Regenerative Medicine Center of APM Spine and Sports Physicians', in our continuous quest to provide our patients and community with access to the finest, most cutting edge, care, we are now offering some new options to facilitate "biologic healing." Biologic healing, or what is more commonly referred to as Regenerative Medicine, describes a process by which we assist the body to heal itself using as few pharmaceuticals as possible. We have been providing this service since 1992, when we introduced Prolotherapy to our patients. Then, just over ten years ago, we brought PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection therapy to the area. For the last 10 years, we have gained a lot of experience using Prolotherapy and PRP to promote healing of injured and inflamed tissues that frequently cause pain and limit function.
Hear what our patients have to say
About 6 years ago, my big left toe hurt so much that I could hardly walk. "Doctors" told me I needed surgery. Fortunately I declined and ended up in APM with Dr. Barr. At first I tried Prolo Therapy shots in my toe. They worked! No more pain. But I needed annual "boosters" Now I am benefitting from PRP. WOW! Even better than Prolo! I can now run, jog or speed-walk every day totally pain free!
When I first came to APM I thought there was nothing that could be done for me. I couldn’t walk upstairs because of my hip. I couldn’t sleep on that side. I couldn’t walk my dog at night which I love to do. We tried a steroid injection which worked much longer than the others I had before. He used an ultrasound to show him where to put the needle. When it came back we talked a lot about options. He let me make the decisions. We decided on trying a healing type of treatment PRP which used my own blood. This worked so well. I can sleep! I can do anything now without it hurting. I can’t thank Dr. Levi enough.
