Joint and Limb Pain

Joint and Limb Pain 

Are you one of the 30% of Americans who suffers from acute or chronic joint pain at least once a month? Joint pain can be caused by a number of different things, including osteoarthritis, injury, prolonged abnormal posture, or repetitive motion.

Even mild joint pain is a debilitating condition that can make it difficult to perform even simple daily activities like walking or driving. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options available to help you minimize or eliminate your pain and help you get back to living a healthy, productive life.

PRP for Joint Pain

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe, effective and all-natural way to heal damaged joints, including shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, fingers, and more. PRP consists of a small sample of your own blood, spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and then injected into the injured area. Medical research and intensive studies are leading the way to the tremendous benefits offered by PRP for patients suffering from low back pain, with the goal of enhancing the body’s ability to naturally heal itself.

Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain

Stem cell therapy is another nonsurgical alternative to pain management that has been practiced since the early 1990s and uses the body’s own stem cells to treat all manner of degenerative conditions, including joint pain. Adult stem cells, collected from reservoirs in bone marrow and adipose tissue, can be transferred directly into the site of the joint or disc injury safely and effectively in an outpatient facility, without resorting to surgery. Stem cell therapy has been proving to be extremely effective and is quickly increasing in popularity among patients of all ages.
