Dr. Gloria Tucker | PRP | Regenerative Therapy | Prolotherapy

PRP, Regenerative Therapy, and Prolotherapy are excellent treatments for all of the following: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, sacro-iliac (SI) instability, shoulder instability, ankle instability, patellar dislocations, TMJ, meniscal tears, hip pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, tennis elbow, hypermobility, low back pain, chronic neck pain, wrist pain, base of thumb pain, plantar fasciitis, and so much more.

Dr. Tucker's practice in Marin County specializes in resolving these conditions by treating the ligaments and tendons using ultrasound guided PRP and prolotherapy.

Its the ligaments!

Dr. Tucker has mastered the technique of PRP and prolotherapy for healing ligaments and tendons. She is an instructor with the Hackett-Hemwall-Patterson Foundation and Dr. Patterson himself was her personal mentor. She has found that this is key to the true resolution of pain and instability.

Because of it’s popularity, Proliferative medicine (Dextrose Prolotherapy and PRP therapy) are sometimes performed by practitioners or physicians that are not specifically trained in it’s proper use. More important than the substance itself is “who” is doing the treatment. It has been said that Dr. Tucker has the best hands in the field.

Dr. Tucker takes her time to make an accurate diagnosis before PRP and prolotherapy treatments

Dr. Tucker’s treatments get to the source of your pain and take care of it once and for all. Her treatments are not invasive, like surgery. They don’t mask the pain, like drug therapy. Instead, her treatments literally help your own body rebuild the supporting structures around the painful joint – giving you enduring pain relief. Dr. Tucker’s diagnoses and treatments are at the cutting edge of medicine today.

Millions of people in this country suffer from pain in their backs, knees, neck, feet,  and every joint imaginable. Pain has severely limited their lives. More times than not, people are unsure about the cause of this pain and have found no relief. Perhaps this is you. Pain medicines are prescribed. Sometimes surgery is recommended, but the pain continues. Frequently, after an injury or surgery, very specific tendons or ligaments are damaged and they are unable to heal on their own. Exercise won’t strengthen a damaged ligament. And the pain persists.

Dr. Tucker weaves together the Analytic Expertise of Traditional Medicine with the Time-Honored Success of Alternative Knowledge.

What is Proliferative Medicine (Regenerative Medicine or Prolotherapy)?

Proliferative treatment involves carefully addressing each tendon and ligament surrounding the injured joint. We create a very precise inflammatory response in the injured tissue allowing collagen to reform and healing to occur. Guided by Ultra Sound, a series of very specific small injections initiates this response, and effectively tightens and heals the damaged tissue. Once these structures are stable, pain resolves and strengthening can take place.

Proliferative Medicine is the treatment of choice for the loose-jointed patient (Hypermobile), patellar subluxation, recurrent ankle sprain, sacro-iliac (SI) instability, low back pain, mid back pain, hip, knee (especially meniscal injuries), plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow and most problems in the foot, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, back and neck. It is a great remedy for early arthritis and sports injuries. Other disorders that respond beautifully to Proliferative treatment include Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia (which is frequently associated with hypermobility) Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and so much more. But we must stress that PRP is five times more effective than Prolotherapy and we highly recommend exploring that option, first. 

Can proliferative medicine help with my nerve pain? Yes!


Neuro-Prolotherapy (Perineural Injection Therapy)

This is a breakthrough procedure that has been recently pioneered by Dr. John Lyftgot . He found that the receptors (TRPV1) to the chemicals secreted by the nerves carry the sensitivity to pain. When those nerves have been ignited, he found that injecting the skin along the nerve tracts shut down the pain transmission. We use 5% dextrose which diffuses down into the deeper nerve tracts and stops the pain. This technique works, and it is very safe.

I have had great success with this in facial pain, neck pain, head pain, hip pain, peripheral nerve pain and severe nerve pain after injury and surgery.
