Regenerative Therapy for Joint Pain
Among the newest non-surgical treatment options for joint pain, regenerative therapy uses the immune privileged amniotic cells to help the injured or arthritic joint heal.
“We are now using regenerative therapy as an alternative to surgery for those dealing with a wide range of degenerative conditions and injuries who have not had adequate response to traditional treatments” said Amit Patel, MD. “Stem cells have regenerative capacity by differentiating into a variety of soft tissues. Using advanced imaging guidance, we can now introduce a regenerative tissue matrix to the exact area in need of repair.”
Among the conditions targeted for regenerative therapy are:
- Cartilage defects
- Degenerative disc disease
- Nerve damage
- Ligament injuries
- Muscle and tendon tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Sacroliac joint pain
- Soft tissue injuries
- Tendinitis (elbow/rotator cuff/Achilles)
The treatment, which includes a series of injections, has shown promise in providing initial reduction in pain followed by a steady continued improvement.
