When tissue such as muscle, tendon, ligament or cartilage is injured or simply degenerates, your body attempts to heal through its own repair mechanisms. In areas where there is limited blood flow-such as cartilage-the body is unable to heal the injury adequately, or even at all. This often results in acute or chronic pain, weakness, swelling, loss of range of motion and the sense that the joints and spine are “glued together”, stiff, and unable to hold you up. The goal with Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine is to stimulate and support the natural healing process in order to actually heal, repair or even “grow back” the damaged tissue, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine provides the promise of long term comfort and mobility to patients suffering from arthritis of the knee, hip, neck, and back. Regenerative Orthopedics offers non-surgical treatment of injuries to cartilage or cartilage degeneration, including meniscus tears of the knee, labral tears of the hip, and annular tears of the lumbar and cervical discs. Regenerative Orthopedic injections can treat tears of tendons such as the shoulder rotator cuff, patellar knee tendon, Achilles tendon, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine can also treat tears in ligaments including knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and elbow ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
If you are seeking to rejuvenate joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or discs so that you experience relief from pain and loss of mobility to an acceptable level to allow you to return to normal daily activities or perhaps perform better in the athletic and sports activities you wish to enjoy, Regenerative Orthopedic Medicine can offer you the possibility of healing yourself naturally, without surgery, by concentrating your body’s ability to heal itself.
