  • PRP to Treat TMJ is Better Than HA and Steroids

    Treating TMJ symptoms—common in my office—doesn’t have to be “paint by numbers.” June 2019 research shows PRP is more effective than hyaluronic acid (like Synvisc) and steroid injections: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=31166260

  • Quality Healing Starts with Quality, Handmade PRP

    My patients are always asking me, “Why isn’t PRP covered by insurance? It works so well and costs so much less than surgery!” Part of the reason is that the thousands of peer-reviewed scientific articles showing the effectiveness of PRP don’t agree on the best “recipe” for making PRP.

    A few ideas are worth highlighting in emerging treatment options for the spine: A recent article in JAMA reveals that radiofrequency ablation for facet arthritis, sacroiliac joint pain, and disc degeneration does not relieve pain beyond a good exercise/physical therapy program alone.
