Treating Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Pain
With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Prolotherapy
Serving the Phoenix Area from Scottsdale, Arizona

Our doctors apply prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma (RPP) and stem cell therapy, which can often help heal and restore damaged joints.

Overuse, injuries, seemingly benign sports like golf and tennis, and the cumulative effects of aging can cause pain, stiffness and swelling, and severely limit the range of motion, muscle strength and stability of your shoulder, elbow, hand or wrist.

Shoulder

The shoulder has an extremely wide range of motion. It is often injured by trauma that tears the rotator cuff or labrum or causes tendonitis or arthritis. Our doctors offer effective PRP therapy and prolotherapy treatment plans to stabilize your joint capsules, healing the tendons and cartilage in your shoulders.

Treating Thumb Injuries with Dr. Michael Cronin

In terms of this kind of joint pain problem, one of our patients said that it directly impacted her employment as a court reporter. She was basically at court typing all day long. She would have to hold her wrists and do things that created a trauma. We were able to do four prolotherapy treatments with her. She was able to renew her court reporting, which then had ramifications in terms of lowering their financial stress as well as giving her sports activities back. So that’s one example.

We have had several patients who have had chronic wrist injuries that prevented them from doing yoga. Sometimes that extreme extension that happens with the downward dog can strain the ligaments of the wrist. And so that’s a very common and usually easily treated condition using prolotherapy in conjunction with other naturopathic medicine modalities.
