MORE ON PROLOTHERAPY TRAININGS
Dr Alvin Stein and Dr Charles Mahl of GenStem Prolotherapy Institute for Regenerative Medicine offer personalized physician and nurse training in Coral Gables, Florida in the art and science of prolotherapy. Our training program is highly individualized for the level of skill of the practitioner. We offer injection techniques under guidance with ultrasound, C arm fluoroscopy and head, hand and heart (we don’t do blind injections).
We will demonstrate neck, shoulder, lumbar spine, sacro-iliac, hip, knee and ankle prolotherapy and give the practitioner the knowledge and understanding of how to evaluate ad diagnose those patients who may benefit from prolotherapy and the principles and techniques of treatment. These fundamental skills will enable the physician to take the basics of prolotherapy and apply it to their patients in their office.
It doesn’t get any better than one on one training for knowledge acquisition and sharing of information in an atmosphere of collegiality. Protocols, informed consent, flow charts, pre and post treatment instructions, patient selection, marking techniques, and prolotherpy formulas will be discussed.
For patients suffering from chronic pain due to injuries that remain unhealed, prolotherapy can often be beneficial in relieving the pain and healing the root cause of the injury by tightening the loose ligaments and tendons.
The goal of training being to allow the practitioner to get started in regenerative medicine, learning basic to advanced techniques according to their experience and skill levels, to treat ligament laxity, joint problems, tendinosis, and spasms.
