A crucial requirement for MSC-based OA therapy is the delivery of the cells to the defect site. Direct intra-articular injection might be possible in early stages of the disease when the defect is restricted to the cartilage layer, whereas a scaffold or matrix of some kind would be required to support the MCSs in cases where the subchondral bone is exposed over large areas.

About half of chronic low back pain is felt to stem from the intervertebral disc, generally from small tears in the outer portion of the disc. This is often referred to as “discogenic pain.” Intradiscal PRP is a procedure in which platelet-rich plasma is used for healing of the disc tissue. If we feel that your back pain may be stemming from the intervertebral disc, you may be a candidate to for PRP.
Platelet activation plays a key role in the process of wound and soft tissue healing. The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), a portion of the patient’s own blood having a platelet concentration above baseline, to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be applied to various musculoskeletal problems. Clinical studies have demonstrated that PRP injections have improved function and decreased pain to various maladies.
Cooled radiofrequency (cooled RF) is a minimally invasive treatment option targeting nerves that are causing pain. Cooled RF can be used to alleviate pain from back pain, sacroiliac joint pain, hip pain, knee pain. During the procedure, an electrode is inserted in the area near the irritated nerves. The electrode heats and cools a small area of nerve tissue, decreasing pain signals from that specific area.

In general, neurostimulation works by applying an electrical current to the source of chronic pain. This creates a pleasant sensation that blocks the brain’s ability to sense the previously perceived pain. There are two related forms of electrical stimulation commonly used to treat chronic pain In spinal cord stimulation, soft, thin wires with electrical leads on their tips are placed through a needle in the back near to the spinal column…Read More
Where surgery is indicated, we work with teams of experienced Orthopedic and Neuro-Spine surgeons in Jacksonville area where we can coordinate care so that if the patient is deemed surgical, we can refer them to the best trained and experienced spine surgeons with a proven track record who use the minimally invasive approach, wherever that’s possible, to do what we refer to in simple lay terms as Arthroscopic Disc Decompressions with Microscopes and Metryx Tube System thus giving superior results and faster recovery.
Sunshine Spine & Pain, PA main office is located in the state of the art Baptist Medical Center South Campus, in Medical Office Building II where we do advanced in house procedures. The state of the art 100% electronic hospital offers modern MRI, CT scanning, and rehabilitation services and the local Marriott inn offers a pleasant and elegant convenient location adjacent to the clinic to serve the Spine Center’s travelling patient needs immediately adjacent to the spine center.
