Restorative Medicine is a therapeutic approach aimed at restoring organ function and endocrine balance on a functional level such that, cellular, metabolic, and functional improvements can be long lasting reducing the need for multiple pharmaceutical interventions. Restorative Medicine seeks to cure the causes of chronic musculoskeletal pain by healing damage and degeneration of connective tissue caused by traumatic injuries and repetitive motion injuries. This is accomplished by injecting natural substances or one’s own blood platelets and tissue stem cells directly into the problem areas in order to regenerate healthy tissue.
PRP/Prolotherapy is an injection technique that stimulates growth of cells and tissue that stabilize and strengthen weakened joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. The injected solution intentionally causes controlled irritation in the injected tissue. This irritation is an inflammatory response, which increases the blood supply and thereby stimulates the tissue to heal and regrow new tissue. Dr. Kalman works with a chiropractic musculoskeletal ultrasound technician to assist with guided injections in the more difficult areas of the body. Using ultrasound allows for both the visualization of tissue trauma that does not show up on MRI and the precise placement of PRP into the areas that need it most.
