Arthritis can rapidly rob a person of the ability to enjoy a pain-free life. It becomes hard to walk, move about or take care of the household, children or grandchildren. Sports are often out of the question. We offer so many pain relief treatments to improve the quality of life for a person with arthritis.
Because of our intensive interest in helping our patients, we have researched far and wide to bring the best therapies under one roof. Our doctors have a wealth of state-of-the-art medical technology available to reduce your pain and stimulate healing and help restore your mobility.
Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis Relief
Stem cell therapy harnesses the healing and rejuvenating power of young stem cells. Every person’s body creates stem cells but as we age, there are fewer and fewer of these healing cells available. This scarcity means that our ability to heal slows down and we have less ability to fight off diseases like arthritis. Injuries take longer to improve and, in fact, may never heal completely.
The solution is utilizing the vibrant and active stem cells present in umbilical cords or amniotic fluid. Introducing these extremely active, youthful healing cells into an area suffering from the inflammation and degeneration of arthritis starts an improved healing response. Patients who thought surgery or joint replacement was their only option are amazed as their pain fades away and they recover full functionality of the affected joint.
Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma involves filtering out the most active healing components in your blood, the platelets, and concentrating them in your own clear blood plasma. When this fluid is injected into an arthritic joint, the platelets can go to work to calm inflammation and repair damaged joints, cartilage and synovial fluid. PRP is often utilized in conjunction with stem cell therapy for maximum improvement.
Joint fluid therapy
Joints that have lost their lubricating fluid due to aging or arthritis can be soothed by adding hyaluronan to that joint. This fluid is the same type of lubricant that your body naturally produces. Freer, more pain-free movement is the usual result.
Class IV laser therapy
Our laser sends healing lightwaves deep into tissues, reducing inflammation and speeding the healing process.
Musculoskeletal imbalances place excessive stress on certain joints. Gentle chiropractic adjustments to the alignment of the spine or other joints improves the function and balance of the whole body. Bringing the body back into balance creates an equilibrium of stresses that the body is better equipped to handle.
Medical weight loss
Extra weight is a risk factor for arthritis and reducing weight relieves the stress placed on all the joints. Our medical weight loss program helps you implement the right approach to weight loss and supports you while you transition to a permanently healthier lifestyle.
Our expert physical therapists work with patients with arthritis to help them recover mobility and free movement in every part of their bodies.
