Have you injured your knee, meniscus, knee cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments? Or so you have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis? You may want to consider regenerative medicine to treat your knee injury. Traditionally, treatment for these conditions require surgery such as arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligaments tears, or a total knee joint replacement with months of rehab, and various risks.
With recent strides in healthcare and science, alternative procedures are now available that can potentially remedy your knee pain and the conditions that caused it with a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure. Unlike traditional surgery, regenerative medicine patients are typically walking the same day, and most patients experience very little downtime following the procedure.
If chronic knee pain, osteoarthritis or joint pain is limiting your daily routine or preventing you from pursuing activities you enjoy, regenerative medicine may be the answer you’ve been looking for! Regenerative medicine has gained notoriety over the last few years as a new, trusted method to administer a natural, effective treatment for helping alleviate your injuries and avoid surgery.
Almost half of adults age 60-80 years old have arthritis in their feet and don’t even know it because they experience no symptoms. If you have ankle and foot arthritis, it is likely to cause symptoms such as:
- Pain and stiffness, making it difficult to walk normally
- Tender joints that feel warm to the touch
- Misshapen ankles and toes
- Numbness and tingling spreading from the effected joint.
You have another option before you resort to surgery: regenerative medicine.
Thanks to recent strides in science and healthcare, regenerative medicine is more effective than ever before at addressing arthritis of the ankle and foot.
Regenerative medicine can often successfully replace conventional arthritis treatments, such as taking anti-inflammatory medications. A regenerative medicine procedure is simple and non-surgical, involving nothing more than a single in-office treatment.
Chronic hip pain can make it difficult to go about your day. If you suffer from Avascular Necrosis, Osteonecrosis, Bursitis, Arthritis, Tendinopathy, a Labral/Labrum tear or other common hip conditions, regenerative medicine may help heal and alleviate your hip problems.
With recent strides in healthcare and science, regenerative medicine – a procedure involving a simple, minimally-invasive treatment – is now available.
This simple procedure can alleviate hip pain and the conditions that caused them in the first place! Regenerative medicine patients are typically waling the same day as receiving a treatment, and most patients experience very little pain or downtime.
Rotator Cuff Tendonitis is a condition that occurs when a shoulder tendon becomes sore and irritated. This condition, if left untreated, can cause the tendon to break down and result in a chronic, long-term condition called tendonitis.
If you participate in activities involving repetitive or overhead arm movements (such as weightlifting, tennis, baseball, painting and carpentry) you’re at risk for developing rotator cuff tendonitis. Our team can help determine the cause of your shoulder pain, and determine a plan to treat or manage your pain while improving the health and strength of your shoulder.
Some shoulder injuries can be resolved with conservative treatment, but not always. Regenerative medicine may help alleviate shoulder pain and reverse joint damage with a minimally-invasive procedure. Patients typically experience little or no pain, and no downtime after the procedure.
Regenerative medicine has been successfully applied as an alternative to conventional treatments, such as taking NSAID medications. Regenerative medicine is also used as an alternative to steroid injections for rotator cuff tendonitis.
Chronic pain typically refers to pain that last for several months, or longer, and typically arises from an injury. Regenerative medicine is a powerful treatment option intended to help your body heal injured tissue as opposed to masking the symptoms of the injury. Initial improvement and reduction in pain may be experienced very quickly, with continued improvement as the healing progresses over time. Studies have shown regenerative medicine to be very effective at relieving pain, while MRI images have confirmed successful tissue repair following these treatments. The need for surgery can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
More than 50 million adults (and 300,000 children) suffer from some type of arthritis in the U.S. It is the leading cause of disability in America. Even though arthritis is very common, it is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease as many believe; its is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.
Common arthritis symptoms include inflammation, swelling, pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion in the joints. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may remain the same for years, but may also progress or get worse over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, including knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also effect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as most joints.
Typical treatments include non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. While these drugs may relieve pain, eliminate inflammation in the joints, they do not accelerate the recovery of the effected cartilage tissue. The only method that is able to reverse the degeneration is regenerative medicine. Using regenerative medicine for arthritis has been successful in highly reputable clinics for many years. Regenerative medicine is a powerful option that may help to improve the quality of life for people suffering with arthritis.
