Innovative and minimally invasive procedures that harness your body's own growth factors to help reduce pain and get you back to living life to the fullest.⁣

Reduce pain &

get back to living!

Non-Surgical Regenerative Medicine Treatments promote healing of musculoskeletal conditions using your body's natural growth factors. When you experience an injury, your body sends platelets to the damaged tissues, initiating the healing process. Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatments enhance this natural response by injecting a high dose of platelets directly into the target area, stimulating an amplified healing response.


Who Should Consider Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatments?

Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is ideal for patients who haven't found relief with traditional treatments like steroid injections, physical therapy, or bracing. It's also a great option for those looking to delay or potentially avoid surgery.


Benefits of Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment:

  • Minimally invasive and non-surgical

  • Enhanced healing with your body's natural factors

  • Extremely low incidence of side effects

  • Minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your routine post-injection


What to Expect During the Procedure:

A Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment treatments are conducted in our Eagle clinic and typically last between 30 minutes to 1 hour. A tailored Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment formulation is prepared based on your specific needs, and the Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is carefully injected into the target area using ultrasound guidance.


Commonly Treated Body Parts Include:

  • Shoulder

  • Hand

  • Spine/Back

  • Wrist

  • Elbow

  • Hip

  • Knee

  • Ankle

  • Foot

Is a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment Covered by Insurance?

A Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is not typically covered by commercial insurance companies or Medicare and is provided as a cash pay procedure. Our office staff can assist you with any insurance-related inquiries.

At FMI Center for Optimal Health, Dr Musnick provides the highest level of consultation/evaluation before planning Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment for tendon, joint and osteoarthritis as well as for hypermobility. He is the author of chapters on both Osteoarthritis and Tendinopathy. At the conclusion of a Consultation for your pain, tendon, or joint problem, you will receive education about all of the tissues involved and what their condition is, all possible treatments (and how they work and fit into a timeline) for your condition (not just a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment). You will be educated about how a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment may fit into your treatment plan and what the best timing may be for it.  He also designs a comprehensive and integrated treatment program so that a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is done on all appropriate tissues in a region and that is integrated with a comprehensive treatment program to decrease pain and promote maximum healing. 


A Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is a concentrated source of autologous (your own) platelets and it contains (and releases through degranulation) certain growth factors and cytokines molecules that may stimulate healing of bone, joints, tendons and ligaments.


Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell involved in blood clotting but are also involved in injury healing. Platelets contain large reservoirs of natural growth factors that are essential for cell recruitment and multiplication involved in wound healing and these same growth factors can aid degenerative joints, tendons and ligaments. 


Part of the assessment is getting a CBC lab which contains a platelet count. The normal concentration of platelets circulating in our blood varies is about 150,000 - 400,000 platelets per microliter. 


Studies show that we need to concentrate the platelet count in Platelet Rich Plasma to exceed 1,000,000 platelets per microliter. This is a concentration of 5x for most people or more if one’s platelet count is less than 200,000. 


A Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is made in the clinic after a blood draw of from 30-60ml of blood. We then put the blood in sterile processing vials from a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment sterile tray. We then use a centrifuge (in a 2 spin process) that separates the blood components and allows us to discard unwanted elements from the blood and to keep the platelets, growth factors, cytokines, and plasma that are used for a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment. The centrifuge takes about 10 minutes to concentrate the platelets after blood is drawn from the patient.


Some of the growth and healing factors found in a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment include:

  • Platelet Derived Growth Factor 

  • Fibroblast Growth Factor 

  • Transforming Growth Factor Beta 

  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor 

  • Insulin like Growth Factor 1, 2 

  • Epidermal Growth Factor 


Dr. Musnick’s Consultation: Dr. Musnick has 33 years of Sports Medicine experience and has designed a very comprehensive evaluation. You can expect the following:


• Identify all tissues generating pain

• Identify the issues (pathology) of the tissues

• Look at multiple tendons and muscles in the area

• Evaluate the health of the bones

• Evaluate the pain processing system and determine if it is sensitized or near threshold

• Will look at posture and movement patterns

• Will look at shoes and walking if ankle, knee or hip issues

• Will evaluate the spine and nervous system that influences the area

• Will check the stability of joints

• Will look at the joint above and below the painful joints

• Will include an Ultrasound scan if it is a tendon or ligament

• Education regarding all tendons that have pathology, the status of the joints and ligaments 

• Education regarding the pain processing system

• Determination if a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment or another treatment is most appropriate

• If a Non-Surgical Regenerative Treatment is appropriate what tissues should be injected


The Treatment Plan: Dr Musnick’s treatment plan is very comprehensive which will give you options but will also give a higher likelihood for pain reduction, improved function and healing. Your treatment plan may include:

• Supplements to support joints, ligaments or tendons

• Homeopathic medicines to promote healing and for pain relief

• Exercise and activity modification

• Whether modalities applied to your tissues would be helpful like: Frequency Specific Microcurrent (to decrease inflammation and for nerve healing ), Laser to aid in healing and for pain relief and PEMF for cartilage stimulation 

• Referral to other providers like Physical Therapist, Chiropractic, Massage
