Medical Conditions Treated at Advanced Regenerative Care

peripheral neuropathy feels like walking on pins

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy often causes burning, numbness tingling, poor circulation, cold hand and cold feet, weakness in muscles leading to balance problems or weak grip strength and pain, usually in your hands and feet, as a result of damage to your peripheral nerves.  Your peripheral nervous system sends information from your brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to the rest of your body.  When these nerves are damaged or diseased, your body cannot properly communicate the various types of signals that allow it to function.  For example, this is the nerve system that would tell your body that your feet are cold, or that you want your muscles to contract so that you can control movement. There are several different kinds of peripheral neuropathies that stem from a variety of causes. They range from carpal tunnel syndrome (a traumatic injury common after chronic repetitive use of the hands and wrists, such as with computer use) to nerve damage linked to diabetes.

It is also important to note that peripheral neuropathy is due to a lack of blood supply and a lack of nerve supply.  Research shows that regenerative medicine can help, as mesenchymal stem cells can help increase blood supply and nerve supply in the affected areas.

Knee Pain

Have you injured your knee,  meniscus, knee cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments?  Or so you have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis?  You may want to consider regenerative medicine to treat your knee injury.  Traditionally, treatment for these conditions require surgery such as arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligaments tears, or a total knee joint replacement with months of rehab, and various risks.

With recent strides in healthcare and science, alternative procedures are now available that can potentially remedy your knee pain and the conditions that caused it with a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure.  Unlike traditional surgery, regenerative medicine patients are typically walking the same day, and most patients experience very little downtime following the procedure.

If chronic knee pain, osteoarthritis or joint pain is limiting your daily routine or preventing you from pursuing activities you enjoy, regenerative medicine may be the answer you’ve been looking for!  Regenerative medicine has gained notoriety over the last few years as a new, trusted method to administer a natural, effective treatment for helping alleviate your injuries and avoid surgery.

Ankle and Foot Pain

Almost half of adults age 60-80 years old have arthritis in their feet and don’t even know it because they experience no symptoms.  If you have ankle and foot arthritis, it is likely to cause symptoms such as:

  • Pain and stiffness, making it difficult to walk normally
  • Tender joints that feel warm to the touch
  • Misshapen ankles and toes
  • Numbness and tingling spreading from the effected joint.

You have another option before you resort to surgery: regenerative medicine. 

Thanks to recent strides in science and healthcare, regenerative medicine is more effective than ever before at addressing arthritis of the ankle and foot.  

Regenerative medicine can often successfully replace conventional arthritis treatments, such as taking anti-inflammatory medications.  A regenerative medicine procedure is simple and non-surgical, involving nothing more than a single in-office treatment.

Hip Pain, Osteonecrosis, Bursitis and More

Chronic hip pain can make it difficult to go about your day.  If you suffer from Avascular Necrosis, Osteonecrosis, Bursitis, Arthritis, Tendinopathy, a Labral/Labrum tear or other common hip conditions, regenerative medicine may help heal and alleviate your hip problems.

With recent strides in healthcare and science, regenerative medicine – a procedure involving a simple, minimally-invasive treatment – is now available.

This simple procedure can alleviate hip pain and the conditions that caused them in the first place!  Regenerative medicine patients are typically waling the same day as receiving a treatment, and most patients experience very little pain or downtime. 

Shoulder or Rotator Cuff Pain

Rotator Cuff Tendonitis is a condition that occurs when a shoulder tendon becomes sore and irritated.  This condition, if left untreated, can cause the tendon to break down and result in a chronic, long-term condition called tendonitis.  If you participate in activities involving repetitive or overhead arm movements (such as weightlifting, tennis, baseball, painting and carpentry) you’re at risk for developing rotator cuff tendonitis.  Our team can help determine the cause of your shoulder pain, and determine a plan to treat or manage your pain while improving the health and strength of your shoulder.

Some shoulder injuries can be resolved with conservative treatment, but not always.  Regenerative medicine may help alleviate shoulder pain and reverse joint damage with a minimally-invasive procedure.  Patients typically experience little or no pain, and no downtime after the procedure.

Regenerative medicine has been successfully applied as an alternative to conventional treatments, such as taking NSAID medications.  Regenerative medicine is also used as an alternative to steroid injections for rotator cuff tendonitis.

Osteoarthritis

More than 50 million adults (and 300,000 children) suffer from some type of arthritis in the U.S.  It is the leading cause of disability in America.  Even though arthritis is very common, it is not well understood.  Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease as many believe; its is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease.  There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.

Common arthritis symptoms include inflammation, swelling, pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion in the joints.  Symptoms may come and go.  They can be mild, moderate or severe.  They may remain the same for years, but may also progress or get worse over time.  Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs.  Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes.  These changes may be visible, including knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray.  Some types of arthritis also effect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as most joints.

Typical treatments include non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.  While these drugs may relieve pain, eliminate inflammation in the joints, they do not accelerate the recovery of the effected cartilage tissue.  The only method that is able to reverse the degeneration is regenerative medicine.  Using regenerative medicine for arthritis has been successful in highly reputable clinics for many years.  Regenerative medicine is a powerful option that may help to improve the quality of life for people suffering with arthritis.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain typically refers to pain that last for several months, or longer, and typically arises from an injury.  Regenerative medicine is a powerful treatment option intended to help your body heal injured tissue as opposed to masking the symptoms of the injury.  Initial improvement and reduction in pain may be experienced very quickly, with continued improvement as the healing progresses over time.  Studies have shown regenerative medicine to be very effective at relieving pain, while MRI images have confirmed successful tissue repair following these treatments.  The need for surgery can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.

Anti-Aging

Aging is a complex process in which cells become progressively damaged over time and finally die.  New regenerative medicine breakthroughs potentially slow down, or even reverse the process.  The cells used in regenerative medicine possess a unique anti-aging effect by means of regenerating and repairing organs damaged by stress and various toxins we are exposed to in our daily life by improving immune functions.

Anti-aging therapy can drastically improve the capacity of physical activities.  Substantial results in anti-aging treatment were shown in all age groups, regardless of gender, in several reputable studies.

With regenerative medicine, you are replenishing the supply of stem cells and other growth factors in your body to allow your body to repair and rejuvenate itself, including your organs and skin.  It may improve the overall quality of your skin, reduce pain, reduce fatigue and tiredness, improve energy, emotional and mental improvements, reduce stiffness of joints and reduction of the effects of degenerative diseases.
