Stem Cell Therapy
Don't operate, regenerate!
Treatment of Joint Degeneration
Painful joints were often treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen or naproxen. These drugs are commonly used to treat only the symptoms of arthritis. Over time, since the actual problem is not being addressed, these patients require some type of surgery or even a total joint replacement. Total joint replacements have long recovery periods and are almost never the patient's first choice of treatment. These limitations of existing treatments have led doctors to look for other ways to effectively treat arthritis and degenerative related joint pain.
Amniotic Tissue Allograph Injection
Since joint degeneration involves the breakdown of cartilage, injections involving growth factors, proteins, amino acids, a matrix of collagen (a connective tissue found in the body), hyaluronic acid and stem cells makes sense in aiding the reparation of a joint. Together these cells create the scaffolding necessary to repair and build the new cells. Additionally, the combination of cells is capable of accelerating the body's healing potential and repairing broken down tissues.
Amniotic injections have minimal pain and are completely non-invasive alternatives to surgery.
How are these injections better than surgery?
While some extreme cases may still require surgery, the majority of patients can return to a normal life shortly after the conclusion of the injections.
Once a patient undergoes injections as part of the regenerative therapy program, the patient will begin to see results. A typical patient is able to return to normal activity shortly after the therapy is completed. This means that patients do not have to deal with anesthesia. They also do not have to suffer through a long and intensive rehabilitation program. The therapy is usually one injection, but sometimes can require more. This is something our physician can better explain to the patient on a case by case basis before the patient consents to treatment.
Finally, stem cell therapy is a better alternative to help people avoid all of the dangers of surgery (including infection, blood clots and organ failure due to invasive procedures).
Don't risk the long, arduous and dangerous road of surgery. Try regenerative stem cell therapy and start feeling better.
What can regenerative therapy treat?
- Knee injuries (MCL, ACL, PCL or LCL sprains or tears)
- Hip or labral tears
- Shoulder damage (rotator cuff, tendinitis in the shoulder)
- Chronic neck pain
- Wrist, elbow and ankle damage and pain
- Foot pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Lower back pain
- Bone fractures that don't heal
- Pain derived from diabetes
Essentially, if you have damage to a ligament or lingering pain to a specific area of your body, regenerative therapy can help. It is the best non-invasive regenerative therapy available and a groundbreaking advancement. Stem cell therapy can additionally help some patients with auto immune disorders and affiliated joint pain.
