Method 1: “The Triple Shot”
Our ‘triple shot’ is a proprietary combination of 3 medications that act to ‘calm down’ the inflammation and pain in the joint.
It’s 3 medications all injected from the same syringe…so there is only one small needle stick. After the triple shot, we generally have the patient wait a about week and then they return for the actual stem cell and/or growth factors injection.
During the waiting period, the inflammation inside the joint decreases, leaving a much better environment in which the stem cells and/or growth factors can work. The triple shot is generally covered by most insurance companies.
