The Physical Therapy department at IMAC Regeneration Center isn’t a run-of-the-mill physical therapy department. While physical therapy is a vital portion of patient recovery, most patients feel aversion to their treatment due to pain and lack of fitness. The very nature of traditional physical therapy requires the therapist to “push” the patient to work harder than they are physically or mentally able. At IMAC Regeneration Center, physical therapy is a fun and unique experience! Our therapists work with each patient individually, building a fun and interactive treatment plan that rewards patients for their hard work. Patients are given goals at the beginning of treatment to track their progress and reach new levels of fitness and health. Whether recovering from on the job injuries, sports injuries, or moving vehicle accidents, choose IMAC Regeneration Center for your physical therapy. We take your recovery personally–because YOU MATTER!
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Have you been told you need a knee or hip replacement? You might be a candidate for Platelet-Rich-Plasma, or PRP. PRP is a safer, less invasive procedure which can actually regrow tissue within the joint space, erasing the need for joint replacement surgery. PRP was used as early as the 1990’s but has gained popularity and mass acceptance within the medical community recently. IMAC Regeneration Center uses a form of PRP known as “Pure PRP”, due to a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors being retrieved. PRP injections are prepared from a tube of the patient’s own blood. After being spun in a centrifuge, the activated platelets are injected into the abnormal tissue (torn tendons, ligaments, broken bones, osteo-arthritic joints, or other abnormalities), releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the proliferation of reparative cells. This treatment has been clinically shown to greatly increase the rate of recovery from injury to a healthy function. This is done without pain medication or surgery! Several clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP injections have improved function and decreased pain to various maladies, including – but not limited to – elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle tendonosis. PRP therapy has also shown great improvement in patients suffering from osteoarthritis. The side effects of PRP injections are very limited as the patient is utilizing their own blood, which they should have no reaction to. Some relative rest is needed immediately following the procedure, then usually followed by a progressive stretching and strengthening program.IMAC Regeneration Center leads the nation in PRP treatments, performing more procedures each year than any other health clinic in the country. Professional athletes from power lifters to NFL athletes and MLB players currently travel to IMAC Regeneration Center for PRP treatment–the same treatment EVERY patient receives at IMAC Regeneration Center.
Spinal Decompression is a treatment that involves stretching the spine with the goal of relieving back and/or leg pain. This treatment provides great relief for patients suffering from bulging or herniated discs. Often, a bulging or herniated disc has moved out of place applying pressure on nerves which run along the spinal column. The pressure applied on these nerves is often painful and can have a detrimental impact on a patient’s quality of life. Through the use of spinal decompression, IMAC Regeneration Center is able to correct the mis-alignment of the disc and relieve pain. Patients can experience relief in a very short amount of time, without surgical intervention or pain medication!
