Effective alternative pain care methods

Restore strength, reduce pain, and speed healing with cutting-edge therapies including PRP treatments and trigger point injections.

Trigger Point Injections

Trigger Point Injection Therapy is the ultimate plateau-breaker. Whether you have suffered an injury while out being active or have chronic muscle tension from sitting at your computer all day, this easy 15 minute therapy will unwind stubborn muscles and get you back on your a-game. Not only will you notice an immediate decrease in pain, you’ll also see improvements in strength, mobility, and range of motion in your joints – even if you’ve tried acupuncture, chiropractic, or soft tissue work with minimal relief. We recommend a series of 4 appointments spaced one week apart to start, and expect 15-30% lasting improvement per appointment.

A powerful pain care choice, trigger point injection therapies can be used to heal current areas of pain or as a monthly tune-up to keep your body moving and performing its best—no matter what activities bring you joy.

“An accident when I was a teenager left me with a broken collarbone that didn’t heal right and eventually had to be surgically repaired. Even though the surgery went well, my shoulder and scar area have continued to be very painful for over a decade. I’m constantly rolling my shoulders and rubbing the area trying to find relief. In a single session, Dr. Storm used trigger point therapy to release my shoulder muscle and prolotherapy to release my scar. The whole area immediately felt SO much better and has stayed feeling pain-free for over a week.”

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is the optimal treatment for those who are experiencing pain in their joints from a sports injury or mild arthritis. Using lidocaine and  dextrose, we stimulate the cells in your joints to produce more collagen, effectively healing your sprain, strain, tear or arthritis from the inside out – without surgery and with minimal downtime. If you’re looking to run, ski, swim, bike, or play volleyball again but your joint pain is holding you back, this therapy is for you. You’ll notice 15-30% less pain and increased mobility in as little as 3 weeks after treatment. We recommend 3-6 treatments spaced 1 month apart for optimal healing and regeneration.

Prolotherapy is the optimal first-line therapy for more recent injuries and early-stage arthritis as it offers one of the most fast-acting and effective solutions to ensure that you heal from injury.

  • Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatments for the elimination of pain
  • Prolotherapy leads to long-lasting joint strength and increased function

“I consulted Dr. Storm because my knee was inflamed, painful and keeping me from enjoying my usual activities. Dr. Storm used prolotherapy two times in combination with having me identify and eliminate from my diet foods to which I was sensitive. Through the combination of these approaches over the course of approximately 3 months my pain has reduced from 7-8 out of 10 to 0/10. I currently do not have any inflammation. I feel as if I have received a new lease on life!! I was feeling pretty hopeless about my pain situation when I went to see Dr. Storm. Now I feel relieved, optimistic and ready to resume my activities. Dr. Storm is that rare combination of providers who is compassionate while being completely well versed in the science (and art) of healing. I trust her. I recommend her.”

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy is a step-up from Prolotherapy to heal aging joints or more severe or long-standing arthritis and injuries. This therapy uses your body’s own healing cells and growth factors to stimulate a powerful healing response in soft tissue and joints. This repairs ligament and tendon tears and regenerates cartilage in arthritic joints, without surgery or downtime. PRP injection therapy is a great choice if you are suffering from joint pain, arthritis, or sports injuries.

This is our MOST effective non-surgical treatment to eliminate your pain and get you back to the activities you love. Why? Because it uses your body’s own healing cells! Your very own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into areas of pain to stimulate a powerful healing response.

  • PRP leads to long-lasting joint strength and increased function
  • PRP stimulates the body’s own immune system to replace and repair degenerated tissue for permanent relief
  • PRP treatments yield an 80-85% success rate—an outcome which beats drugs and surgery combined
  • We typically recommend only 1-3 treatments for full recovery

About the appointment: during your PRP treatment, Dr. Storm will draw your blood and spin it in a special centrifuge to isolate your platelets. This personalized solution will be injected into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joint spaces to restore full function and reduce pain.

“Dr. Storm has treated several of my creaky joints from long-ago injuries, all with impressive results. Both of my thumbs had become progressively more painful and crunchy– lots of noise in the joints with use–since dislocating them in a car crash 35 years ago. I was worried that I only had a few years of guitar-playing left, as they would hurt a lot after playing for even 15 minutes. I’ve now had four PRP treatments on each thumb, and they’re about 75% better overall, with much improved strength and range of motion without pain. I feel like there’s more improvement coming, and I no longer worry about guitar playing at all, and can play for hours at a time. She has also treated my left shoulder, which I separated 20 years ago. It never healed well, and I had to favor it to keep from re-injuring it. Massage and chiropractic treatment would help for days or weeks at a time, but Dr. Storm’s treatments have strengthened it and reduced the pain significantly. I now can go months with no pain or weakness. Sometimes when I overdo it, it needs another treatment, but then does really well. Dr.Storm has also treated my neck, which had been giving me trouble for about 6 years, mostly due to my work posture. Regular craniosacral treatments helped some, but Dr. Storm’s treatment fixed the problem. I would recommend Dr. Storm for any orthopedic problem, as my results have been stellar!”
