Beyond chiropractic care, University Sports & Spine can perform trigger point injections, PRP treatment, and stem cell injections.
Learn more about these treatments and how they can benefit you below.
Trigger Point Injections
What Are Trigger Point Injections?
When your muscles do not relax, they form knots.
These knots are called trigger points.
Trigger points build up
Trigger point injections aim to release the pressure in these knots to help them relax.
How Can Trigger Point Injections Benefit Me?
As mentioned above, trigger point injections help to release pressure in the knots created by muscles not relaxing.
Your doctor performs an injection by placing a needle directly into the knot.
The injection contains a local anesthetic that neutralizes the pain.
If you are experiencing pain from a specific spot on your body, it may be time to talk to a professional about trigger point injection treatments.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatments
What Are PRP Treatments?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is an injection that helps to promote healing.
This injection is often favored by professional athletes because of the quick healing benefits.
If you sustained a personal injury, PRP treatments could be right for you!
What Are PRP Treatments Used For?
There are many benefits to getting PRP injections, and because of that PRP can help treat many conditions.
The most common use for the PRP injection is
- Hair Loss
- Tendon Injuries
- Sports Injuries
What Is The Process For Getting PRP Injections?
Our doctors will start by taking a sample of your blood in the area of the injection.
Then the sample will be separated using a centrifuge.
This will separate the plasma out of your blood, and that plasma will then be injected back into the same area.
This process will help heal tissue, regrow hair, and help with injuries.
Stem Cell Injections
What Are Stem Cell Injections?
Stem cell therapy is a treatment that uses our own cells to help heal us.
Our bodies have a natural tendency to heal.
However, when we are involved in an accident or sustain injuries, that healing mechanism can sometimes need a little help.
That is where stem cells come in.
They help to stimulate the healing mechanism our bodies naturally have and help heal us faster.
As a regenerative medicinal treatment, stem cell therapy is highly recommended as a potential alternative to surgery.

All of the medical treatments mentioned above are highly effective.
They each have their own conditions they work best to treat.
