Arthritis is a painful, sometimes debilitating, joint condition that affects more than 52 million adults in this country, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). There are over 100 different types of arthritis. These range from conditions related to cartilage degeneration and wear-and-tear, such as osteoarthritis, to those caused by an overactive immune system, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Their shared symptoms include: pain, stiffness, a lack of mobility, loss of function and swelling
Specific treatment of arthritis depends on the exact type and severity of arthritis that a patient has. Upon a firm diagnosis, the physician will discuss the underlying cause and all treatment options with the patient. At Integrity Pain & Wellness, pain management is always individualized and our pain specialists work in partnership with each patient. That said, Integrity’s physicians are experienced in the full scope of available options, including medications, injections, and regenerative medicine. Often a multimodal approach is used. The physicians at Integrity Pain & Wellness understand how arthritis pain can affect an individual’s ability to work, have relationships and enjoy life and are committed to remedying that as quickly and safely as possible.
At Integrity Pain & Wellness we offer patients the latest options in pain management. This includes regenerative therapy, a leading-edge, non-surgical approach to repairing arthritis damage and the pain that accompanies it. Regenerative therapy for arthritis involves the injection of amniotic cells to help the injured or arthritic joint. These stem cells have an amazing regenerative capacity. Integrity Pain & Wellness uses advanced imaging guidance to introduce the regenerative tissue matrix to the exact area in need of repair. Treatment includes a series of injections and has demonstrated exciting potential in reducing arthritic pain followed by steadily continued improvement.
