Tri-Cities Regenerative Institute (TRI) uses the only FDA registered PTM product intended to treat tendon, ligament, cartilage and bone injuries.  PTM Therapy® is a cutting-edge, next-generation procedure that targets the body’s damaged or missing connective tissue at the area of injury with a complete biologic solution. The extracellular matrix is the interconnected system of Collagens, Growth Factors, and Bioactive molecules that provides the structural foundation for our body’s tissues and biochemical support to the surrounding cells. 

PTM has been shown to:

Reduce Inflammation
Support Tissue Remodeling
Avoid Scar Formation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative injection technique that uses the patient's own blood to stimulate healing at site of injury.   After the patient's blood is drawn, we convert it to concentrated platelets in our lab, which can then be injected into damaged tendons, muscles, ligaments, or cartilage.  PRP also has many other uses, including cosmetic/aesthetics, nerve hydrodissection, and sexual health.

Prolotherapy is an regenerative injection used to repair arthritic joints, and strengthen injured ligaments or tendons.  The procedure involves injecting a proliferant solution (typically 12.5-25% dextrose) with a local anesthetic (lidocaine) into damaged connective tissue.

How does it work?
Prolotherapy treatment induces a controlled, localized inflammation at the desired site of injury which stimulates the body to repair the tissue.

Prolotherapy typically involves a series of 2-6 treatments at 3-6 week intervals. Benefits from this treatment are typically noticed 2-4 weeks after the first or second treatment.

When is Prolotherapy a good fit?

Pain due to ligament  laxity
Joint Osteoarthritis
Back and neck pain from chronic poor posture
Pain from overuse- i.e. “tennis” and “golfer” elbow
Chronic pain from ligament or tendons caused by sprains or strain
