About SJSIn creating Spine & Joint Solutions, PLLC, Dr. Martin’s hope has been to provide patient-focused care using appropriate, advanced treatment options to improve pain and restore function. The initial goals of SJS are to provide comprehensive evaluations, give accurate diagnoses and thoroughly educate all patients about their ailments, allowing patients to make informed decisions about their care. Available treatment options range from a comprehensive rehabilitation program to more advanced treatments including spine or joint injections. Regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and stem cells, is emerging within the field of musculoskeletal medicine for the safe and effective treatment of spine and joint pain and tissue damage. PRF and stem cells, usually retrieved from the patient’s own body, offer patients more appropriately conservative and effective approaches to pain relief and tissue repair than traditional treatment options. Furthermore, these treatment options usually allow patients to return to pre-injury activities much more quickly than other treatments available.
