Regenerative joint therapy uses injections to stimulate the repair tissues in your body. This includes your tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, organs, skin and muscles. Cartilage, ligaments, and tendons heal slowly. In most cases, the original strength is never recovered. Once an ankle has been sprained, it is easily sprained again. If untreated, disability and joint damage can result from unstable joints.
Most joint pain is caused by injuries and weakness of the tendons and ligaments stabilizing the joint. Overuse and insufficient healing can cause additional damage and weakness in the tendons and ligaments. Regenerative joint therapy may be recommended if you have joint weakness or pain, motion and range limitations, pain flare-ups, muscle pain, soreness or spasms around the joint, or joints that are easily clicking and popping.
Every one of these treatments inhibits inflammation. The problem is inflammation is necessary to protect the joint from sustaining another injury. Your body uses inflammation as a signaling system to tell your body to start repairs. If you disrupt the process, your healing process may never reach completion.
Regenerative joint therapy uses injections to stimulate the injured area. This initiates your natural healing response. The inflammation is just the beginning of the cascade of healing to rebuild damaged tissues by recruiting repair cells. As time passes, your tissues are often restored naturally. In many cases, the need to have surgery has been eliminated with regenerative injections.
There are many additional factors necessary to improve healing in addition to the injections. Proper nutrition is just as important as the process of healing. Your body needs the right amounts of building blocks to rebuild your tissues. This means consuming quality nutrition is critical to the healing process.
