After seeing disappointing results in many sufferers with chronic pain, Dr. Sinoff sought and developed special expertise in musculoskeletal pain, using Regenerative Injections (Prolotherapy) and other highly effective, but lesser known treatments. These techniques produce remarkable long term results in relieving pain without surgery or following failed surgery.
Regenerative Injections* are highly successful in reducing musculoskeletal pain by inducing healing and regeneration of damaged tissue, especially ligaments, tendons and fibrous tissue. There is a high probability of substantial reduction in pain in many conditions including: joint pain, back pain, neck pain, headaches, hand and foot pain, sports or work injuries, osteoarthritis, TMJ- jaw pain, fibromyalgia.
Dr. Sinoff is a member of the Canadian Association of Orthopaedic Medicine and the American Osteopathic Association for Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine.
