Regenerative Joint Injections

Eliminate joint pain in as little as one treatment.

It’s POSSIBLE to eliminate chronic pain.

Benefits of Regenerative Joint Injections

Regenerative joint injections work by injecting natural solutions into painful or injured tissues, triggering a temporary inflammatory response. This signals the body to flood the area with healing and repairing cells.

These non-surgical and drug-free injections eliminate pain in as little as one treatment and stimulate a healing response that continues for months.

Rather than masking chronic pain, this natural treatment heals the root cause of the problem to create lasting pain relief.

Regenerative Joint Injections Can Help

Types of Joint Injections

We offer a variety of regenerative joint injections at Desert Wellness Center. Our licensed naturopathic physicians will evaluate your joints and recommend the therapies best suited to you to improve the stability, mobility, and health of your joints.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) prolotherapy harnesses the healing properties of your own blood cells. We draw a sample of your blood and spin it down with a highly specialized technology by Terumo. This process extracts platelets, growth factors, stem cells, and other healing elements from your blood. The result is a highly concentrated solution that we inject around the joint area, precisely where we want the healing to happen.
Neural prolotherapy works by injecting a mixture of dextrose and sterile water into a painful area or joint with a tiny needle. Neural prolotherapy targets the small nerves just below the surface of your skin to relieve pain immediately and to signal the body to send healing and repairing cells to the area. Many patients experience immediate pain relief after this procedure!
Exosomes are small vesicles that are secreted by cells. They carry information from one cell to another and are central to communication between cells. Similar to stem cells, exosomes are derived from very young cells that are early in their development. We want to be sure our patients know that the exosomes we use at Desert Wellness Center are derived from placentas that have come from live healthy births without harming any life. Exosomes stimulate growth factors and tissue healing at the local site of joint injections.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that act as tiny messengers at the cellular level. Many peptides have a regenerative effect in the body by triggering cellular pathways that lead to growth and repair. Peptides are present in foods and synthesized in the body, but their production declines with age. Using peptides as regenerative joint injections is one way to combat this age-related decline. Peptide therapy can stimulate growth factors, cartilage production, and healing in the joints.
Prozolone™ is a specific form of ozone therapy that involves careful injection of medical-grade ozone around the joint area. Ozone therapy works by increasing circulation and oxygenation. Prozolone™ delivers oxygen to the tissues, stimulates cartilage regeneration, reduces swelling, and improves mobility. There is a fast recovery time, minimal side effects, and long-lasting results.

What to Expect from Regenerative Joint Injections

Regenerative joint injections are a safe and effective option for anyone who wants to avoid surgery for joint pain and damage. The procedure is non-invasive, and you can resume your daily activities right away with no down time.

Some joint injections create noticeable relief instantly, while others stimulate a healing response so that improvements are seen within 2-6 weeks. Because regenerative injections work with your body’s inherent healing mechanisms, you can see continued improvements for up to 7 months after an injection.

Our physicians will evaluate your response to the first treatment and may recommend a series of injections after that. It’s common for patients struggling with chronic joint pain to receive weekly injections for 2-8 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Numerous studies back the safety of the regenerative joint injections we offer at Desert Wellness Center. PRP utilizes your own blood, making adverse reactions unlikely. Exosomes and peptides introduce substances that are recognized by the body and mimic naturally occurring compounds. Prozolone™ is medical-grade ozone administered safely and gently. Our physicians are highly trained and have administered thousands of injectable treatments. Rest assured you are in good hands.
You may feel some pressure or stinging during the procedure, but this resolves quickly. Most of the injections are administered with tiny needles, making this procedure much more comfortable and gentle than procedures that require larger needles, such as corticosteroid injections.
You can resume your normal activities after a joint injection with no down time.
The number of treatments needed depends on the severity and duration of your condition. Mild acute injuries may only require a single injection. For chronic pain related to osteoarthritis or degenerative discs, we typically recommend weekly injections for 2-8 weeks.
Osteoarthritis involves degeneration of joint cartilage and inflammation that causes swelling and pain. Regenerative injections provide and stimulate the release of growth factors that initiate healing of damaged tissue. These injections also help to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. Unlike taking pain medications, regenerative injections work with your body to heal—creating long-lasting results.
Chronic neck and back pain often involves degenerative joints or degenerative spinal discs. Regenerative injections stimulate growth factors and boost collagen production to address the root cause of the pain.
Injuries such as torn ligaments, meniscus tears, tendonitis, bursitis, or other athletic injuries involve a combination of tissue damage and inflammation. Regenerative joint injections address both of these problems to stimulate joint healing and recovery.
Sciatica involves inflammation that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. While physical adjustments and physical therapy can also help with sciatica, regenerative injections can help reduce inflammation in the muscle tissue to relieve pain.
