Affecting one out of every five adults in the United States, arthritis is one of today’s most prevalent pain conditions. Over time, arthritis can cause debilitating pain, holding you back from your work, hobbies, and other activities. Thankfully, patients today have regenerative medicine, a cutting-edge treatment option for arthritis pain.

Read on to learn more about regenerative treatments and how they may revolutionize your arthritis recovery. 

What Causes Arthritis Pain?

Arthritis causes inflammation in the joints. Over time, this inflammation can damage the cartilage that protects the joints.

As cartilage degenerates, friction within the joint increases. This exacerbates inflammation, increases stiffness, and contributes to chronic pain. 

Arthritis can also damage the connective tissues around a joint, like tendons and ligaments. As these tissues become inflamed, you may experience worsened pain. 

How Does Regenerative Medicine Help Treat Arthritis Pain?

Regenerative medicine uses stem cells, platelet-rich plasma, and growth factors to stimulate the body’s tissue repair processes. The regenerative substances are injected directly into the arthritic joint and surrounding ligaments or tendons. 

  • Stem cells are a type of cell that can regenerate into other cells with specialized functions. As we get older, the body naturally has fewer stem cells. Injecting stem cells into an arthritic joint can help regenerate damaged cells in the area, alleviate inflammation, and gradually reduce pain. 
  • Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, involves concentrating platelets from the patient’s blood, then injecting the platelets into the injured area. Platelets are naturally rich in healing growth factors that support tissue regeneration. Combined with stem cell therapy, PRP can maximize the body’s healing process to improve arthritis pain. 

At the Regenerative Orthopedic Institute, we offer RegenaJoint, a revolutionary treatment designed for chronic joint pain from conditions like arthritis. By harnessing the regenerative capabilities of the patient’s own regenerative cells and platelets, RegenaJoint offers powerful results for individuals living with chronic joint pain. 

If you’re suffering from arthritis pain, regenerative medicine could be the non-surgical solution you’ve been seeking. Reach out to us today to schedule a free consultation!
