Joint rejuvenation therapies have been popular with professional athletes including Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, and Kobe Bryant as safe and effective means to heal their bodies and return to play since the mid-1990s. Now, due to advancements in medical technology, PRP and stem cell therapies are available to everyone from high school athletes to weekend warriors to people simply looking for an alternative to costly and painful surgery. Joint rejuvenation therapies are ideal for anyone experiencing pain that is stopping them from doing the things they love . . . pain free.
Joint rejuvenation therapies are outpatient procedures that involve an injection of concentrated growth factors or stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in injured, painful, or degenerative joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Joint rejuvenation therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions and/or injuries.
Joint rejuvenation therapies include platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapy, which can both accelerate the healing process.
Reduce the Need for Major Surgery
Joint replacement surgeries are very invasive, require general anesthesia, and require a lengthy recovery with rehab and scarring. Even less invasive surgeries such as knee arthroscopy involve extensive rehab and risk of infection. The need for such surgeries can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses. What would it mean to you if you could alleviate knee pain without a knee replacement? Because the goal of regenerative therapy is to heal injured tissue and not just mask the pain, the therapy can have lasting results.
Our bodies have the capacity to heal from many injuries on their own; however in some joints there is poor blood flow and slowed healing capacity, making it difficult for our bodies to recover without intervention. Joint rejuvenation therapies may stimulate the body’s natural ability to repair with minimal recovery time.
