CBD stands for cannabidiol, and THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol, both of which are substances found in cannabis plants. CBD is often sold as an oil, is not psychoactive, and has certain medicinal properties. THC, on the other hand, is the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana. THC seems to have a greater effect on the way the mind perceives pain, whereas CBD may work to ease pain at the local source.

What is the purpose of PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient’s own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.

 

What are the main three benefits of PRP?

PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also a great treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.

  • Tendon, muscle, or ligament injury.
  • Arthritis in the knees, hips, or fingers.
  • Chronic low back pain.
  • Osteoarthritis.

What is the purpose of Regen Treatments for Joint and Nerve Pain?

These biological therapies are designed to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms, improve tissue health, and resolve chronic inflammatory pain. Regenerative medicine is focused on developing and applying new treatments to heal tissues and organs and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects. The human body has the natural ability to heal itself in many ways.

 

Why is regenerative medicine a good option for joint pain?

Regenerative medicine uses your body’s own capacity for healing. Your stem cells, platelets, and amniotic fluids, which are all rich in growth factors, can be injected into arthritic joints to ease inflammation and prompt the development of new, healthier cells.

 

What is the purpose of Emsculpt NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is a non-invasive treatment that simultaneously combines Radiofrequency heating and HIFEM procedure to reduce fat and build muscle. The treatment helps eliminate and removes fat cells from the body while also causing muscle growth through intense muscle contractions.

 

What is the science behind Emsculpt Emsculpt NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO® uses the dual power of radiofrequency (RF) and High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM)+ energy to promote muscle contractions and disrupt fat cells, simultaneously sculpting and contouring the treated areas. After your Emsculpt NEO session, fat cells die and process out of the body. Those cells can never grow back, leading to sustainable fat reduction. However, focusing on being physically active and eating healthy is important to avoid weight gain.
