Stem Cell Therapy for Orthopedic Pain
Orthopedic pain is a common complaint that affects millions of Americans. In many cases it is caused by osteoarthritis (also known as wear and tear arthritis), although it can also be caused by chronic autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, facet arthropathy (a type of arthritis), spondylitis (which creates pressure on the spinal cord), injuries to bones, joints, connective tissues, inflammation of the facet joints of the spine, bulging discs, cartilage damage, spinal stenosis, and other degenerative conditions.
Stem Cell Treatment for Pain
Spinal and neck arthritic conditions of the cervical (neck) area can impinge, or place pressure on, the spinal cord and other peripheral nerves. This can result in symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the arms, legs, hands, and feet. Osteoarthritis, disc denegation, facet joint inflammation, stenosis (narrowing of the spaces in which the spinal cord runs), and herniated discs can all cause stiffness, and sometimes debilitating pain in the neck area, as can certain soft tissue injuries.
Lower back and spinal arthritis can cause pain and stiffness due to damage to the underlying structure of the spine or discs. Spinal discs act like living cushions, absorbing shocks to the spinal bones. When they are damaged or compromised, they can cause nerve compression and pain. In some cases, the pain can be related to soft tissue injuries like ligament tears and pulled muscles.
Knee conditions can be very painful, limiting range of motion and function. The knee is a complex hinge joint prone to injuries caused by exercise and overuse. Knee pain can be debilitating and game-changing. Knee disorders include bursitis, tendonitis, gout, arthritis, damage to the cartilage or knee cap. In some cases, patients report grinding or popping noises, weakness or instability, redness, swelling and warmth, an inability to flex or extend the knee, and an inability to walk or stand.
Hip disorders affect millions of Americans. Osteoarthritis (wear and tear arthritis), hip injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, hip fractures, tendonitis and bursitis, sciatica, damage to ligaments or tendons, cartilage damage, bone infections, and other disease processes or injuries can cause severe hip related pain. Hip pain can be temporary and acute (sudden), or chronic (long term), and can range from mild to severe enough to require hip joint replacement.
Hand and elbow conditions are an ongoing issue for millions of Americans. Tendon, nerve, and ligament related injuries, in addition to autoimmune related inflammatory processes can cause pain, as well as result in loss of function or full range of motion. Common hand, elbow, and wrist related disorders include: osteoarthritis (wear and tear arthritis), carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, ganglion cysts, bone fractures, cubital tunnel syndrome (affects the elbow), epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), arthritis, nerve injuries, sprains and strains, and tendon or ligament injuries.
Shoulder issues can cause a loss of range of motion and function as well as pain. Common causes of shoulder pain include soft tissue injuries such as rotator cuff injuries, shoulder joint inflammation, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, muscle and bone injuries, tendon damage, impingement syndromes, and bursitis.
