Pain Relief without Surgery


Microfragmented Adipose Injections

Microfragmented Adipose injections are the next generation of regenerative medicine for individuals suffering from spinal conditions, joint pain, arthritis, or rotator cuff tears, just to name a few. Traditionally, patients may undergo surgery for these conditions but Microfragmented Adipose injections offer a simple, minimally invasive alternative with a faster recovery time. Virginia Spine Institute is the only facility in the Washington Metropolitan region utilizing the healing properties of the body’s fatty tissue using Lipogems.

Prolotherapy, short for proliferation therapy, is a type of procedure designed to promote natural healing of a damaged ligament or tendon. Ligaments, tendons, and muscles work together to make our bodies move naturally – when any of those become unstable, chronic joint or spine pain can be the result. Prolotherapy can be used to treat a specific joint or an entire region of the body.  The goal is to strengthen weakened connective tissue and improve musculoskeletal pain.
