Regenerative medicine—that an organ or tissue can be repaired or even regenerated—is a relatively new breakthrough in western medicine. Natural alternatives to using long-term medications, steroid injections or surgery, regenerative therapies stimulate the immune system to restore function by repairing or even regrowing tissues that were injured and impaired from any cause, including disease, trauma and aging—and especially cartilage and ligaments once thought impossible.

Restoring degraded tissues to their former condition involves a combination of several converging approaches, both ancient and newly emerging, and that are proving very effective for arthritis as well as joint, tendon and ligament injuries. Each approach injects natural remedies into an injured area; remedies that cause a mild inflammatory response which “turn on” the normal healing process.

Combined with corrective osteopathic care and an anti-inflammatory diet, a complete treatment plan coordinated by Dr. Childers can get you back to battery—or better.

Platelate Rich Plasma Therapy

Packed with growth and healing factors, we inject the body’s own first response to injury right into the damaged and unhealing area: platelets collected from your own body. This now-higher concentration of platelets attracts the critical assistance of stem cells and other healing factors. And, because your own blood is used, there is no risk of reacting to something foreign. Read more…


A non-surgical injection treatment that repairs ligaments, cartilage and restores joint function with minimal recovery time. Prolotherapy candidates typically haven’t been helped by traditional anti-inflammatories including steroids. Dr. Childers injects a sugar solution into the chronically inflamed area. The sugar acts as a mild irritant and stimulates the immune system to move into the next healing stage: tissue repair and regrowth. A course of injections, over time, has been clinically shown to regrow and restore various joint tissues. Read more…

As a doctor, I didn’t think that my first experience with Platelet Rich Plasma therapy would be as personal as it turned out.  But last year, after I suffered an acute shoulder rotator cuff tear.  I didn’t have many options.  I tried ‘let it heal’ (using my basic tools and anti-inflammatory diet of course) but when my MRI showed the degree of damage (a full thickness tear of the large tendon that allows me to raise my arm-in case you want to know) I thought my only option was with an Orthopedic surgeon.

I wasn’t able to raise my arm, and the way I use it day in and day out to heal others made it worse; many activities for both work and play became virtually impossible.  Finally I (albeit grudgingly) went to my friend the orthopedic surgeon who of course suggested I have surgery sooner rather than later.  Of course this meant none of my hands on work for 3 months plus a significantly painful rehab.  I needed another option.

I decided to look for an alternative to surgery.  I had some awareness of PRP therapy and as luck would have it knew a colleague who used it in his practice.  After just 2 injections of platelets I have full range of motion and I am able to perform all of my usual work.  I can do most of my play activities without pain or restrictions.  (Still can’t do push-ups, if you call that play.)

Because of my own personal experience, I felt obligated to provide this cutting edge and extremely cost effective therapy to my patients who might benefit.  Before you sign on to expensive surgery with long recovery times, let’s talk.  I’d love to evaluate your situation, especially shoulder and knee pain or arthritis, to determine if this therapy would be appropriate for you. “
