Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Due to its ability to provide fast, inexpensive and accurate results, the musculoskeletal ultrasound has become the imaging test of choice for physicians treating high-performance athletes and nonathletes. Having the ability to quickly and easily determine the severity, and the progression of an injury makes the musculoskeletal ultrasound essential for determining when an athlete can resume play or if an individual can return to everyday activities.

Coolief Radiofrequency Ablation

COOLIEF is a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure designed to target only the sensory nerves directly responsible for causing a patient’s knee or hip pain. Studies indicate that COOLIEF provides patients suffering with chronic knee or hip pain an average of 12 months of relief. Furthermore, during the 12 months of relief, patients’ dependency on medications decreases and they notice an improvement in their mobility and up to a 50-80% decrease in pain. COOLIEF has been approved by the FDA to treat arthritic pain related to the knee and hip.

Stem Cell Injections

Through the use of regenerative biologic treatments (orthobiologics), including stem cell therapy, damaged tissues throughout the entire musculoskeletal system are being repaired and strengthened. This treatment is being used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal problems and orthopaedic injuries.

Percutaneous Tenotomy (TENEX)

Traditional treatments for chronic tendon pain include the use of cortisone shots, having tendon repair surgery or undergoing time-consuming physical therapy sessions. Today, however, patients have another option for treating this condition: TENEX. Using the TENEX method, Dr. Joshua G. Hackel can find and remove the degenerative scar tissue responsible for causing a patient’s pain.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

While surgical intervention may be an obvious solution for those suffering with severe orthopaedic injuries, some patients may benefit from a variety of non-surgical treatments, including PRP injections. Even patients with severe arthritis, torn ligaments and/or muscles may be able to avoid surgery with platelet-rich plasma therapy.
