Meet Marc Margiotta, Health and Wellness of Carmel’s Newest Provider

Marc specializes in myofascial release, Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for joint health, facial rejuvenation, and hair rejuvenation as well as homeopathic injections. Marc will be providing these therapies under the instruction and supervision of our licensed medical providers.

What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the bodies trigger points and can restore normal joint function and relieve pain by stretching tight, restrictive connective tissue (fascia). 

Using hands on manipulation, myofascial release therapy helps to stretch and restore proper mobility to tissues that might be affecting blood flow and nerve conductivity. Pain, inflammation, limited motion, restricted blood and lymph flow, or nerve dysfunction can be symptoms of the skeletal muscle or connective tissues that are being restricted by tight or damaged fascia.

Using myofascial therapy, Dr. Marc can alleviate pain, restore movement, decrease inflammation and promote healing.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Regeneration?

PRP for hair regeneration is a minimally invasive treatment in which your own platelets from your blood are processed and then injected into your scalp to promote fuller, thicker existing hair and new growth or awakening of dormant hair follicles.

  • Increasing the thickness of hairs
  • Increasing the number of hair follicles that can actively support healthy hair
  • Strengthening the hair roots

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Rejuvenation?

What is Prolotherapy?

What are Homeopathic Joint Injections?

Homeopathic joint injections are an excellent alternative to using steroid medications for pain and inflammation in both joints and soft tissue.

With these injections, patients are likely to experience a decrease in joint pain and soft tissue pain. You may also experience more confidence on your feet and with day-to-day functions with increased joint stability. With these injections, arthritic joints have shown a decrease in pain and a slowing down of the arthritic process. 

Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Joint Pain

With these injections, patients have been shown to have a self-healing process that utilizes your bodies own innate healing properties by utilizing your body’s own stem cells and platelets leading to:

  • Better function and activities of daily living
  • Profound pain relief
  • Significant self-healing
  • Significant slowing down of the arthritic process
