Are you or someone you know struggling with shoulder, knee, hand, or wrist pain? Have you ever heard of regenerative orthopedics? The field of regenerative orthopedics is an innovative approach to treating painful musculoskeletal conditions. With treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy, regenerative orthopedics can provide lasting relief from persistent pain. Let’s look at some of the common conditions regenerative orthopedics can treat.
Rotator Cuff Tears
A rotator cuff is a group of four muscles in the shoulder that help stabilize the joint and allow for normal arm movement. Rotator cuff tears occur when one or more of these muscles become wholly or partially torn due to trauma or overuse.
Symptoms include sharp pain in the shoulder area when lifting the arm away from the body, difficulty sleeping on the affected side, and weakness in the affected arm. PRP injections can accelerate healing and reduce inflammation in cases of partial tears. In contrast, stem cell therapy may treat complete-thickness tears that don’t respond to conservative treatment.
Shoulder Labral Tears
The labrum is a ring of soft tissue surrounding the shoulder joint that helps provide stability and cushioning for the joint. Labral tears occur when this tissue becomes damaged due to trauma or overuse, resulting in pain when moving the arm overhead or away from your body.
Some regenerative orthopedics, like PRP injections, often repair labral tears and reduce inflammation associated with chronic pain caused by labral tear syndrome. Stem cell therapy may also be used in cases where conservative treatments have failed to provide relief.
The meniscus is a C-shaped cartilage between the thigh and shin bone that helps stabilize and cushion the knee joint during movement. Meniscal tears can occur due to trauma or degeneration with age, leading to symptoms such as swelling and clicking sensations within the knee joint.
Regenerative orthopedics injections from IROSM may promote healing after injury and reduce inflammation associated with chronic pain caused by meniscal tear syndrome (MTS). Stem cell therapy may also be used for more giant tears where conservative treatments have not effectively relieved pain and instability associated with MTS.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is an age-related condition characterized by degeneration of cartilage within joints leading to stiffness, swelling, limited range of motion, and persistent pain. The primary goal at IROSM of treatment for osteoarthritis is to provide comfort and improve the quality of life by reducing inflammation-induced pain. As there are currently no cures, most treatments concentrate on alleviating these symptoms.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when pressure builds up around nerves within wrists, causing numbness and tingling sensations along hands and fingers; it usually results after repetitive motions such as typing on keyboards for long periods without breaks.
Regenerative Orthopedics has revolutionized musculoskeletal care offering hope and lasting relief from previously untreatable conditions. All three diseases can be treated using PRP injections and stem cell therapies, which aim to reduce inflammation and promote healing throughout afflicted areas.
Whether you’re experiencing shoulder pains due to a rotator cuff tear or wrist pains due to carpal tunnel syndrome, regenerative orthopedic treatments may offer lasting relief from persistent musculoskeletal conditions while avoiding surgical interventions altogether. If you’re suffering from any of these conditions mentioned above, reach out today to IROSM to learn more about how regenerative orthopedic treatments could help improve your quality of life.
