Undergoing an invasive procedure isn’t the only way to restore your joints and repair damaged tissue. With our lineup of regenerative procedures, we can treat a wide variety of acute injuries and chronic diseases. Most of these treatments are minimally-invasive, and patients often notice amazing results within weeks. Our team would love to help you come up with a comprehensive treatment plan that reduces your pain levels and improves your overall quality of life.
Treatments for Joints
Healthy joints are incredibly resilient, but life will take its toll on your bones, ligaments, and soft tissue. Even though a joint can be replaced with an invasive procedure, many patients aren’t ready to deal with the side effects of those operations. When joints are reinforced with pins or replaced entirely, many patients must spend weeks in bed recovering. After all of that hard work and discomfort, there is no guarantee that the results will last for more than a few years. Our regenerative procedures will trigger your body’s natural healing response so that the damaged joints become healthier. Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M) injections and joint fluid therapy are two great options for patients who have damaged joints.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is now being used in hundreds of restorative and regenerative procedures. In the 1970s doctors discovered that the plasma inside your blood can trigger your body’s growth factors. When the PRP is injected into damaged tissue, the area is filled with millions of healthy cells. This style of treatment takes a few months to complete, but the results can be astounding. The side effects are also extremely minimal, and most of our patients notice nothing more than some redness and inflammation following each set of injections.
Stem Cell Therapy
Another popular treatment that we offer is stem cell therapy. Stem cells can be harvested from your own body, and they are very similar to PRP. After the harvested cells are injected back into your soft tissue, your body begins the process of healing the area. We offer stem cell therapy for damaged ligaments, cartilage defects, joint injuries, arthritis, and chronic pain. The regenerative process usually takes around 12 weeks, and you can schedule follow-up treatments every six months. Some patients also combine stem cell therapy with other procedures like laser ablation, PRP, and hormone replacement therapy.
The Benefits of Regenerative Procedures
Surgical treatments are more effective than ever, but they aren’t for everyone. We believe that many patients can avoid those operations as long as they begin treating their health complications early on. If you have recently noticed any issues with your back, neck, or joints, then we would love to help you come up with a complete treatment plan. Our team has helped countless patients overcome chronic pain, stiffness, and other life-altering health problems. Contact Longevity Regenerative Institute today to schedule your consultation!
