Non-surgical pain management is at the forefront of medical science, and using plasma rich platelet injections to help cure and manage pain is gaining momentum.

Join Dr. John E. Baker of South Florida’s Allegiance Orthopedic and Spine Institute as he describes how non-surgical procedures are working for people from all walks of life, including professional athletes.

At Allegiance, surgeons use image-guided fluoroscopy (a special type of x-ray) to inject pain-relieving medication precisely where a patient needs it, without risking damage to the spine. The medication works by reducing pain caused by inflammation, and results can last for several months. Injections can be repeated for longer lasting benefits.

Stay tuned to learn more about plasma rich platelet injections with Dr. Baker.
