If you are frustrated with the recurring irritation and pain of your piriformis syndrome, consider a surgery-free treatment that goes to the root of your problem. The objective of Dr. Greenberg’s regenerative therapy is to destress the system, initiate regeneration, and promote kinetic equilibrium.
Dr. Greenberg’s team will perform The Greenberg Method, including a review of your most recent radiographs. We will carefully examine and palpate your ligaments to gain a comprehensive understanding of the kinetic integrity of the key systems along your spine, pelvis, knees and feet that can be affecting your piriformis. We will assess your gait and check for pelvic tilt to see if your musculoskeletal systems are balanced.
Based on the evaluation, Dr. Greenberg will determine if you are a candidate for The Greenberg Method. If so, he will treat your Piriformis Syndrome with the healing and synergistic cascade of Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Treatments.
A typical treatment course may call for several injections typically performed every 3 weeks, depending on the patient. Dr. Greenberg has had success with regenerative treatments of the piriformis tendon at its origin and insertion points. He will also treat the nearby sacral, sacrotuberous and sacrococcygeal ligaments. The treatments initiate your body’s healing processes to rebuild sinews, tendons and cartilage using the body’s own healing components to strengthen and renew the ligaments and reduce piriformis pain.
The Greenberg Method is an excellent choice for people who are looking for a non-invasive alternative to surgery that has lower infection risks, shorter recovery times and is opioid-free. We work with you holistically. We, renew you physically and try to raise your personal sense of wellness, so you become a healthier YOU with a back that feels great.
