If you’ve been living with chronic joint pain for a long time, you might be anxious to just be done with it, but surgery isn’t always the best answer. In fact, recovering from joint surgery is one of the hardest things that a person can do, and it isn’t a procedure that should be taken lightly. Looking for alternative solutions? Here are some things to consider.
Cortisone, or corticosteroids, are treatments that are injected directly into the joint for the purpose of reducing inflammation. For the most part, it is severe and debilitating inflammation that causes most arthritic pain, so these treatments are generally considered safe and effective.
However, there are some very good reasons to avoid cortisone shots. They aren’t right for everyone, and your medical history or current medications might preclude you from getting the injections. In addition, getting too many of these injections may cause permanent damage to the joint.
Regina Joint injection treatment
RegenaJoint is a different type of injectable treatment. This injection also significantly reduces inflammation, but it is customized for you and developed with tissues and fluids from your own body. This makes the treatment completely safe because there actually isn’t anything foreign being put into your body. On the contrary, your body’s own healing and growth factors will do all of the work.
