Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a painful and cruel disease that effects musculoskeletal structure all over the body, including the knees, hips, spine, shoulder and feet. It can be difficult to diagnose, and the primary symptom is pain and loss of function. Traditional treatments like cortisone injections can now be replaced by regenerative (repair) to help the body repair and enhance the functionality of structures like joints, rather than to patch, replace, or mask the pain with drugs.

The Regenerative Therapy is one of the safest and most advanced approaches to treating a wide variety of injuries and diseases within the human body. We use umbilical cord allograft regenerative products that are regulated by the FDA, and careful guidance by the American Association of Tissue Banks, NIH.

Patients recovering from injuries will rapidly improve exhibiting a greater mobility and less pain, compared to the lengthy and exhaustive period of post-surgical healing and rehabilitation.

In normal joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. Cartilage provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called spurs. Bits of bone or cartilage may chip off and float around in the joint. In the body, an inflammatory process occurs and cytokines (proteins) and enzymes develop that further damage the cartilage. In the final stages of OA, the cartilage wears away and bone rubs against bone leading to joint damage and more pain.

Regenerative Therapy is designed 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. Studies have shown Regenerative Therapy to be very effective at relieving pain, while MRI images have confirmed successful tissue repair following Regenerative therapy. The need for surgery can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
