If you are suffering from a painful chronic condition – such as arthritis, back and neck pain, or an orthopedic injury – but are reluctant to undergo surgery, there is a viable alternative you should be aware of.
Cellular-level regenerative medicine provides an effective, nonsurgical treatment option for conditions that cause pain, decrease mobility, and prevent you from enjoying an active lifestyle.
Treatments like ozone injections, photo-activated PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, and stem cell treatment can regenerate, rebuild, and restore damaged cartilage, tendons, and ligaments – without invasive surgery.
PRP, ozone, and stem cell therapy help boost the ability of injured tissue to heal while also stimulating the growth of new and healthy tissue.
How to Know If You Are a Good Candidate for Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is an appropriate protocol for those who experience:
- Moderate osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, ankle, shoulder, hands, or wrists or another degenerative joint disease
- Joints that are weak and unstable
- Limited range of motion, stiffness, tenderness, and swelling in joints
- ACL or meniscus tears
- A partial tear in the rotator cuff or labrum
- Shoulder pain, tendinitis, or labral tears
- Tennis and golfers’ elbow
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Non-healing fractures
- A weak immune system
- Migraine headaches associated with neck pain and spasms
Ozone injection therapy is a powerful regenerative treatment that is also very healthy for the body in general. It involves injecting oxygen-ozone in a very specific concentration into an affected area of the body. Ozone injection treatments are safe and effective outpatient office procedures.
PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of your blood, using a double spin technique to isolate the platelets from the rest of the blood content, and activating them with three different wavelengths of light, which makes the PRP more potent and less inflammatory. These activated platelets and growth factors are then injected into a damaged joint, cartilage, or ligament to promote healing.
Stem cell therapy is a technique in which harvested autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells are injected directly into the area of the body that is being treated. Whereas conventional treatments are often limited to medications with potential side effects, temporary lubricating agents, or surgery, stem cell treatments enable damaged joints to heal by utilizing your body’s innate repairing abilities.
