New Hope for Arthritis Sufferers

New Hope for Arthritis SufferersIf you suffer with arthritis pain, you know that some days can be worse than others. You may notice that your pain is also worse in the morning, and that your decreased range of motion allows the joints to experience stiffness and soreness when you first wake up.

Arthritis can affect one joint or multiple joints in the body. Your knees may hurt when you climb stairs, stand up from a sitting position, or kneel. It may hurt just to go for a walk. It can strongly influence your mood and even your social life. You may even feel a sense of helplessness.

What causes arthritis in the first place?
Cartilage is a firm, flexible connective tissue found in your joints and it protects them by absorbing the pressure created when you move and put stress on them. When you have a reduction in the normal amount of this cartilage tissue, it can cause arthritis.

There is hope!
What if we told you that there is a non-surgical, non-invasive, safe treatment that can utilize platelets from your own blood to rebuild this damaged cartilage that is causing your arthritis? This treatment is successful in stimulating the healing response to the damage relieving painful symptoms associated with arthritis. It is also a great natural alternative to cortisone injections. Studies show that repetitive use of cortisone shots can actually deteriorate the joint and damage the cartilage. It can also lead to tendon rupture.

Stem Cell Therapy (Regenerative Medicine) is a new way to help the body heal on its own without the use of drugs. And in some cases, may reduce or eliminate the need for surgery all together. This procedure can heal the tissue inside the knee the same way your body heals a cut on your arm.

Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) uses your own blood to help promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.

Our patients have seen remarkable improvements in their symptoms as well as their return of movement.

The treatment plan consists of one to three injections with a follow up visit, 3 to 4 weeks later where we evaluate your response to the treatment and decide if additional follow up treatments are needed.
