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.

I wanted to convey a heartfelt thank you for your help with my herniated disc in my back. The shots you gave me helped me to avoid surgery, and I am very appreciative.
I am also grateful for the kindness you showed me during this scary period in my life – all of the staff there were very nice to me and understanding of my fear.
Thank you for helping me through this.
Seven years ago my big toe hurt so much, I had slmost had to give up even simple things like just walking.
Arthritis had destroyed most of the cartilage in my big toe joint. The outlook sounded dismal. I was faced with possible surgery and a resultant fused toe joint.
Then I met with Dr. Lisa Barr, and ended up trying Prolo Therapy. This worked faily well. However, over the years, I have been fortunate to have Dr. Barr try something faster, better, and longer lasting - PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). PRP has proved to be a "miracle treatment" for my toe (not to mention my rotator cuff problems).
I am now "rapid-walking" approximately 96 mies every month - that's over 1,600 miles since I started over 16 months ago. I have had no pain or even discomfort. My wife ways I'm in "great shape".
P.S. As for my rotator cuff, I now work out and play golf on a regular basis with no discomfort.
