Thank you for your interest in learning more about Joint Rejuvenation Treatments.
Horizon Joint Rejuvenation Centre is a specialized medical clinic dealing with patients who suffer from chronic joint and orthopedic pain. We offer a variety of new and exciting options to help you live the full life you deserve including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Prolotherapy, and Perineurial Therapy. Our philosophy, a philosophy of staying true to the idea that the practice of medicine should first and foremost, do no harm.
Today, advances in regenerative medicine allow us to take a person’s own platelets, isolate them, concentrate them, and apply them directly to a damaged area of the body. Once there, those platelets begin to create healthy, new regenerated tissue that is comprised completely from your own body.
No longer is there always a need for orthopedic surgeries and weeks of painful rehabilitation. Instead of medications and surgeries, we can now use the body’s own regenerative and restorative components and focus them on rejuvenating an injured area. Professional Athletes were among the first to use Regenerative Therapies to keep them in the game. The beauty of Joint Regenerative therapy is in its simplicity.

Patient Check List
Please read through the areas/conditions treated prior to completing the Patient Intake Form
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets). The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.
PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
Concentrated dextrose is injected into soft tissues (tendons, bursa, ligaments and/or joints). The dextrose causes cells to swell and disrupt, triggering the release of chemicals that stimulate healing.
Prolotherapy requires multiple injections, a common course of treatment includes weekly injections for 4-6 weeks.
Perineural Injection Therapy
Like Prolotherapy, concentrated dextrose is injected into area of nerve inflammation. These injections have been clinically shown to reduce or eliminate peripheral nerve pain within seconds.
Please carefully read the Pre- Treatment Guidelines prior to treatment. They are important to the success of your treatment.
