At Optimal Health & Wellness in Pasadena, CA, we offer regenerative joint therapy treatment plans that rely on natural methods to treat the most common sources of joint pain. If you’re looking for an alternative treatment option that can naturally treat your symptoms, heal and repair your joints, and help you achieve real and long-lasting results without compromising your health, we can design a customized joint therapy treatment plan that’s right for you.
What Should You Expect From Regenerative Joint Therapy?
Our regenerative joint therapy treatment plans use different injectables to naturally stimulate regenerative processes within the body to heal and repair damage, including damage to ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscle, skin, bone, and joints.
One of the benefits of a customized joint therapy treatment plan is that the natural injectables we use can strengthen and stabilize the joint and ensure sufficient healing so that patients can experience optimal recovery after an injury or relief from an acute or chronic condition.
A Customized Treatment Plan
Our customized treatment plans aim to meet each patient’s unique needs. When you begin your joint therapy treatment plan, we’ll take steps to learn more about your symptoms and your condition so that we can design your treatment plan accordingly.
What We Can Treat
We can treat shin splints, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, wrist pain, TCC, and ankle pain, including Achilles tendinitis, a sprained ankle, and heel spurs. We also design treatment plans that address TMJ, jaw pain, lockjaw, and neck pain, including disc issues, whiplash, and cervical instability. Patients suffering from knee pain can also benefit from a customized treatment plan to address ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL, a torn meniscus, cartilage defects, or a jumper’s knee.
Our injections can also significantly reduce pain and promote healing for patients suffering from golfer or tennis elbow, forearm pain, weakness or numbness, various headaches, including tension, headaches, and migraines, and hip pain, including iliotibial IT band syndrome, hip degeneration, and piriformis syndrome. We can also treat back pain with our injections, including disk issues, sciatica, facet injury, and stenosis. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis can also benefit from customized treatment plans.
Versatile Treatment Options
We offer a variety of injections to meet the needs of patients with unique symptoms, conditions, and treatment goals. These regenerative injection therapies include platelet-rich plasma injections, Ozone Clot Matrix, stem cells, prolotherapy, and prolotherapy with ozone.
Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatment process designed to reduce pain and repair joint damage. During the treatment, we’ll inject some specific ingredients into the joint to force the body to respond with a healing reaction that results in the regrowth and rebuilding of the ligaments and tendons.
The injection ingredients include dextrose, a simple sugar, a local anesthetic, either lidocaine or procaine and nutrients like B12. Once the solution is injected into the area, it creates an inflammatory process that forces the body to heal the area with natural processes. The result is the repair and strengthening of damaged ligaments and tendons, which stabilizes the joints and alleviates symptoms.
Prolotherapy With Ozone
Our prolotherapy with ozone injections uses this reactive form of oxygen to stimulate the immune system to release growth factors to promote healing, specifically to treat damaged joints and degenerative discs.
Ozone is known for its ability to promote tissue healing. It can also dissolve scar tissue, reduce or control inflammation, and enhance the immune system. Combining prolotherapy with ozone will stimulate the healing of the damaged tissue to help the patient achieve the desired results.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma is a substance derived from each patient’s blood and can be re-injected into damaged tissue to promote rapid wound healing and regeneration. Platelets naturally heal the body after an injury and promote regeneration with the body’s growth factors.
These proteins are isolated after a standard blood draw and re-injected into the treatment area to promote healing. We can use PRP injections to treat several different conditions, and they can be combined with prolotherapy and ozone for enhanced results. Patients suffering from tendinopathy, joint and muscle issues, and even osteoarthritis benefit from a customized treatment plan with PRP injections.
Ozone Clot Matrix (OCM)
Ozone Clot Matrix is similar to PRP, but the difference lies in that it also contains ozone. The ozone and activated blood create a matrix that can force the injection area to hold PRP for up to two weeks. The platelets are only active for 24 hours after a typical PRP injection, but this treatment can extend the life of PRP in the treatment area to promote optimal healing and tissue regeneration.
Stem cells are designed to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration and can promote optimal health. The aging process results in the decreased effectiveness of natural stem cells, but with stem cell therapies, we can safely and naturally enhance each patient’s stem cells to promote healing and joint or tissue repair.
Patients who undergo joint therapy treatments can expect long-lasting results. However, there are ways to enhance the treatment results to optimize the healing process. Focusing on proper nutrition is essential to promoting healing, as nutrients are the building blocks of tissue repair. Avoiding environmental factors and lifestyle choices that can interfere with healing, including smoking, can also accelerate your recovery and ensure lasting results.
Regular exercise designed to mobilize the joints, including physical therapy, can promote accelerated healing and help strengthen the weak or damaged area. We can give you more details about optimizing the healing process during your treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Joint Therapy?
Patients looking for a natural, alternative treatment process that can eliminate or reduce joint pain or weakness, reduced range of motion, pain, flareups, muscle spasms, soreness, and other common symptoms may benefit from a regenerative joint therapy treatment plan.
