At Reno Regenerative Medicine, we offer joint injections to those patients struggling with joint pain.
Joint pain can occur in any joint of the body, but most patients who experience joint pain tend to feel it in certain areas such as the wrists, knes, hips,or shoulders. Acute joint pain is typically the result of an injury or direct trauma while chronic joint pain can be caused by rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Chronic joint pain can also develop as a result of an underlying medical condition such as dislocation, infection, osteoporosis, cancer, or fibromyalgia.
Persistent and/or severe pain that prohibits your ability to complete everyday tasks should be evaluated by a doctor. If you notice redness, joint deformity, swelling, or reduced range of motion, it is time to schedule an appointment.
If over-the-counter medications and physical therapy prove unable to relieve your pain, we may then proceed with another method of treatment such as joint injections. This non-surgical treatment option can not only help you experience pain relief, but can also provide increased range of motion which can also aid in making physical therapy more comfortable.
During joint injections we will directly apply a solution of corticosteroid and anesthetic into the injured or damaged tissue. While this is not a permanent solution, it can help provide pain relief for up to several months.
Trigger Point Injections
Here at Reno Regenerative Medicine, we are proud to offer trigger point injections for patients struggling with fibromyalgia, tension headaches, myofascial pain, and muscle pain in the arms, legs, lower back and neck.
This procedure is safe and the risk of possible complications is very low. You may experience soreness or numbness at the injection site for a temporary period of time. While you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days, you should be able to actively use your muscles immediately following treatment.

Here at Reno Regenerative Medicine, we specialize in helping you receive the proper care after a personal injury, auto accident or fall. Our staff is devoted to helping you obtain the most comprehensive treatments and the care you deserve.
Physical therapy has many important health benefits. It not only reduces and eliminates pain, but many therapies and technologies can stop pain from recurring. Physical therapy has been known in some cases to even help prevent surgery, and has contributed to the recovery from sports injuries and strokes. If you are having trouble standing, walking or moving—no matter your age—physical therapy can help improve your mobility, improve your balance and prevent falls. Physical therapists can perform specific exercises that quickly restore proper vestibular functioning, and reduce and eliminate symptoms of dizziness or vertigo. In addition to the numerous physical health benefits, physical therapy also aids in the management of women’s health concerns such as pregnancy and postpartum care. For pulmonary problems, physical therapy can improve quality of life through strengthening, conditioning and breathing exercises, and help patients clear fluid in the lungs.
From improving mobility to creating a treatment plan after an injury, we are here to help make your recovery and everyday activities easier.

We specialize in correcting your body’s misalignments. Our goal is to ensure that your spine and the rest of your body are working harmoniously. To do so, we will help you develop a plan that will require light stretching, some exercise, chiropractic care, and a healthy diet.
At Reno Regenerative Medicine, we are pleased to offer IV therapies to our patients. We offer a wide range of treatments, from simple hydration to more customized therapies, including unique combinations of vitamins and minerals. We tailor each IV therapy session to the individual, depending on their needs and existing conditions.
The primary benefit of IV therapy is that it delivers the needed products directly to the bloodstream. Rather than waiting for nutrients to be absorbed through the digestive system, our patients can quickly receive them where the body will actually utilize them. Most therapies take between 15 and 30 minutes to administer, and we even have some patients come in on their lunch breaks!
IV therapy can help with a wide range of concerns from weight loss to anti-aging and may ease the following symptoms and more:
- Common skin problems, such as dull skin and acne
- Muscle soreness or fatigue
- Common cold
- Low energy and fatigue
- Excess weight
Some of our patients receive regular IV therapy on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, while others come in only as needed. Our doctor will be able to cover the available options and create a custom treatment plan for each patient, depending on their specific desires, needs, and schedules.
If you have questions about IV therapy or would like to schedule an appointment, please call our office at (775) 683-9026 today!
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat both men and women experiencing imbalances or drops in their naturally-occurring hormones. Hormones are responsible for most of your essential bodily functions, so when they are disrupted in any way, cascade effects across all your systems can ensue.
- Mental clarity
- Low sex drive or libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Insulin resistance
- Adrenal and thyroid disorders
Symptoms that are common with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, and low libido can be dramatically improved with BHRT. For many other conditions, BHRT can improve vitality, energy, mental clarity, mood, weight loss, and even muscle strength!
BHRT comes in several different forms, and at Reno Regenerative Medicine, we carefully take into consideration your symptoms, medical conditions, and history before making a recommendation for a specific treatment. Options may include:
- BioTE® pellet therapy
- Compounded natural hormones
- Nutraceutical supplementation
Delivery of BHRT depends largely on the specific therapy option, but include:
- Implanted pellets
Hormones are a vital part of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. No one needs to suffer the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and at Reno Regenerative Medicine, we are confident we can find the right solution for your unique needs.
Here at Reno Regenerative Medicine, we are proud to provide GAINSWave® services to our male patients struggling with sexual dysfunction. This treatment uses low-intensity sound waves, also known as acoustic wave therapy, to help deliver increased blood flow to the penis and improve sexual function with harder and more sustainable erections. This procedure has even proven to be helpful for those men who have erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.
While treatment times vary depending on your specific condition, most patients need 6 to 12 sessions for the treatment to be most effective. In each 15 to 20 minute session, we will be able to break up plaque that has formed in existing blood vessels, stimulate the generation of new blood vessels, and activate dormant stem cells that will also help with cell production. This process will increase blood flow and allow for enhanced sensitivity in the penis.
