He performs home-based and in-laboratory sleep studies and incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy in the treatment of patients with insomnia.
Information on Prolotherapy:
Prolotherapy also known as regenerative injection therapy, proliferative therapy, ligament reconstruction therapy, and fibro-osseous injection therapy, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to strengthen joints weakened by trauma, degeneration, or overuse injury.
Information on Platelet Rich Plasma:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. PRP injections are prepared by taking a tube of a patient’s own blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The activated platelets are then injected directly into the injured or diseased body tissue, releasing growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells. Ultrasound imaging is sometimes used to guide the injection.
Information on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for insomnia is an approved method for treating insomnia without the use of sleeping pills. It is aimed at training patients to use techniques that address the cognitive factors associated with insomnia, such as the “racing mind,” and to overcome negative emotions that perpetuate sleep difficulties. CBT is usually delivered over the course of 6 to 8 weekly sessions and is a highly effective method for helping patients overcome chronic insomnia.
