When your body is injured, it attempts to heal itself through its own repair mechanisms. Depending on many factors, including the site and severity of the injury, your body may be unable to completely heal itself. This is especially true in areas where there is a lack of blood flow, such as in and around our joints. Unable to adequately heal, these injuries can leave you with symptoms ranging from weakness and swelling to pain and disability. For many, orthopaedic surgery may be the best choice to fully restore their lost function – but for others, the world of regenerative medicine can be a game changer.
Regenerative medicine harnesses your body's innate healing mechanisms in powerful ways. Using your own body's tissue, our specialists are able to augment the natural healing process to heal and even grow back the damaged tissue. These techniques can help treat a wide range of orthopaedic conditions and injuries, helping to rapidly speed up your recovery.
At Arthritis & Sports, our specialists perform many surgical and nonsurgical regenerative treatments designed specifically to heal and regenerate tissue, including treatments for:
Acute and chronic sports/motor vehicle injuries
Sprains and tears
Tennis and golfer’s elbow
Degenerative hip and knee disease
Back and neck pain
Disc and facet degeneration
Degenerative knee cartilage
- Partially torn ligaments, cartilage, and tendons
Rotator cuff injuries
For many patients, our regenerative treatments provide complete pain relief in just one treatment session. Thanks to their regenerative properties, these treatments allow many of our patients to avoid surgical intervention, eliminating their prolonged recoveries and getting them back to a pain-free life in days (instead of months). With a substantial amount of research supporting the efficacy of regenerative treatments, these in-office treatments can get you back on your feet and back to your life!
