Have you recently experienced sudden hip or knee pain? Or have you been in chronic joint pain for quite some time and are ready to get back to feeling better? A regenerative approach for joint pain with us might just be what you need for overall wellness. Here's everything to know about the different regenerative therapies for joint pain.
What is Joint Pain?
Joint pain can affect one or several joints in your body, including the shoulders, wrists, knees, elbows, and hips. Pain in the joints can either be acute or chronic in nature and can be caused due to several diseases or illnesses such as:
- viral infections
- runner's knee and other knee injuries
- bone and joint infections
What Are the Benefits of Regenerative Therapies for Joint Pain?
There are multiple benefits to undergoing regenerative therapies for treating joint pain. Regenerative medicine involves non-narcotic and minimally invasive treatments and works by stimulating the body's innate healing mechanisms. Common regenerative therapies for joint pain include:
- platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
- stem cell therapy
- tissue engineering such as fat cell therapy
This can help patients increase their wellness levels, improve functional mobility of their joints, and enhance their quality of life.
What to Expect During a Regenerative Joint Pain Session
If you've never had a regenerative joint pain session, you might be wondering what to expect during your first appointment. A certified physician at Cary Disc Center will begin by asking you a comprehensive set of questions to determine your current health, including symptoms and joint pain severity. From there, your doctor will prescribe a form of regenerative therapy that's right for you based on your lifestyle and health needs.
During your actual appointment, you will experience a minimally invasive procedure. Effectiveness depends on the patient's body and its ability to stimulate its healing mechanisms. Most patients may feel an increase in wellness after just one session, but others may require an additional appointment before experiencing long-lasting pain relief.
Effective joint pain treatments require an accurate evaluation and prompt care using safe, effective regenerative techniques.
