Event Description

Designed for both beginner and advanced students in regenerative injection techniques, this course will include a series of lectures that review foundational principles, anatomy, biomechanics, diagnostic testing, specific injection techniques for regions of the body and osteopathic manipulative treatment to complement injection techniques. 

We will discuss the rationale for using prolotherapy or platelet-rich plasma injection in improving stability and integrity of ligaments, tendons and joints. Diagnostic evaluation of joint instability and enthesopathy will be a focus and will be included in the hands-on portion of the course.
