Previously we discussed what life could look like without pain, specifically joint pain. This month we are focusing on how this can become your reality. We will discuss what techniques can be utilized for permanent joint pain solutions vs. standard of care temporary Band-aid approaches. Regenerative therapy for joint pain may be able to help you.
Regenerative approaches, such as utilizing quality tissue products, have the capability to become permanent solutions for joint pain. The science behind how this process works, as we understand it, is pretty phenomenal. For instance, once a tissue product is injected directly into a joint or tendon, many things can happen. 1) The recipient can start to experience an anti-inflammatory effect, as the body responds to the injected product. Many components exist within the tissue products that play roles in the healing process. There are agents that signal communication to the body on how to repair itself. There are also agents that serve as scaffolding to provide a protective cushion that both supports damaged joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
In conjunction to the anti-inflammatory benefits, 2) the regenerative aspects also begin. Soft tissue restoration and cushioning are permanent. Regenerative Therapy is a means to introduce a new cushion, newly incorporated soft tissues into your body, which become a part of you for the rest of your life. How long do they last? No one can take them from you. They have the potential to last as long as you allow them to. It really depends on how far you push your body and your joints.
Alternative therapies for joint pain exist, such as steroid injections and gel injections. These methods can help with joint pain, but are most likely temporary and sometimes have negative long-term side effects. For more information, please contact us and we would love to further educate you on the regenerative therapies we offer here in Dripping Springs.
