Joint discomfort and stiffness is a very real problem that affects many people as they age. If this has affected you, you may feel as if you cannot do the many things that you once enjoyed doing daily. For example, you may have trouble climbing the stairs, walking around the block, or traveling out of the country. Thankfully, there is no longer a reason to quit doing these things because we have a great solution that does not require surgery. With regenerative joint therapy, we can help your body repair itself with special cells that are found naturally in your body. If you have been dealing with joint discomfort for some time now or have experienced issues after an acute injury, you may be able to benefit from this therapy if you fall into one of the following categories.
You Want Natural Relief from Symptoms
Most traditional joint therapies require unwanted medications and injections that can leave you with many unwanted side effects or invasive surgery. These therapies may not be as effective as you want, and you may find that they do not do enough to get you back to your normal life. Plus, you may be left with scars and constant follow-up appointments with your doctor.
With regenerative joint therapy, we use non-surgical injections of natural cells to help your body repair itself. Most frequently, platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is used. This substance is taken directly from a sample of your own blood. We can also use other types of cells, such as stem cells, or prolotherapy. These injections help your body slowly build back the tissues that are needed in the joints to help them move smoothly and without discomfort.
Those Wanting Better Functionality in the Future
If you are tired of being limited in what you can do each day, regenerative joint therapy can get you back to your normal activities quickly. A treatment usually takes two hours or less, and you will be awake the entire time. Once your body goes to work in repairing tissues with the help of these newly injected cells, you will notice that your joints become more flexible and functional. Plus, your joints will become stronger, lowering your chance of injury in the future.
