Have you ever wondered or even had a thought about how are you going to manage your joint pain when you start suffering with it. The everyday wear and tear is mostly reflected on our joints, knees in particular. The weight of the body, the constant move of our lives & above it, all that stress, but do we have a plan on how to take care and avoid surgery? An even bigger question, how do we avoid future joint cartilage loss and delay osteoarthritis? By picking up from the ques we get.
Our experts at Regenesis Orthobiologics have studied how exactly we can avoid surgery and know exactly what needs to be done when it comes to joint care. Use these tips to find the best possible way to tackle knee pain using your own cells.
Here is some information that could help you take care of your joints starting today, tackle pain, and choosing the right strategy to move forward with Pain.
As simple as this may sound, it definitely works! If you still haven’t started doing those lunges and squats, it’s time to get them by including some stretching too. A few benefits of incorporating these in your daily life is that it increases flexibility allowing your muscles to distribute the weight-bearing on knees evenly and does not overburden your knees. Stretching is also known to improve your range of motion allowing you to stay in a fluid (healthy) state than a rigid constricted state. It also helps with an increase in blood supply to the joints and muscles, which in turn increases speedy recovery and reduces the muscle’s stress.
How to Start:
Take it slowly if you’re new to a regular stretching routine. Your body, like in any other sort of physical activity, takes time to adjust to the stretches you’re doing.
You must also have a strong understanding of good form and technique. You risk getting hurt if you don’t.
You can stretch at any time of day. On days when you work out:
Prior to your exercise, strive for 5 to 10 minutes of dynamic stretching.
After your workout, stretch for another 5 to 10 minutes with static or PNF (Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretching.
Learn from your signs and symptoms
Your body is a marvelous piece of art. It is a hub of signaling patterns and bodily functions that you might not even know are taking place as you read this. One such pattern of sending signals is ‘Pain’ or inflammation.
Inflammation is the quickest response to joint pain. When the immune system or damaged tissue releases chemicals that cause swelling and other symptoms in a joint, it is called joint inflammation. When a person suffers an injury, it can impact just one joint. Certain medical conditions such as Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, might cause several joints to be inflamed all over the body. Avoiding these signals can definitely leave you in a severe situation than you were in previously. It could be a twitch, you take a break while climbing those everyday stairs, all these little signs should instantly tell you that it’s time to get your joints seen by our experts as you may benefit from trying our non-invasive stem cell injection.
Understand what Stem Cell Treatments are all about
Understanding how Mesenchymal Stem Cells were first introduced and used to the extensive practice in today’s time has made them available to every type of patient suffering from Joint conditions.
The study of mesenchymal stem cells stretches back to the early 1980s. Human stem cell treatment did not commence until 2010 when a patient with a spinal injury in California received human embryonic stem cells as part of a clinical trial. Stem cells are now being used to treat a number of conditions, including knee osteoarthritis
Patients with painful conditions such as osteoarthritis, degenerative arthritis, or tendinitis may be candidates for stem cell treatment for knee discomfort. Patients with knee discomfort caused by overuse or injuries may also be good candidates for stem cell therapy.
Injecting a patient’s own collected stem cells to stimulate the body to mend and replace damaged or worn-out joints or soft tissues around the knee structure is how stem cell treatment for knee pain works. This is a non-invasive procedure done as a day case. Patients report improvement in pain and returning to normal activities in as little as a few weeks.
Stem cells vs Knee Replacement: What are the risks?
Naturally, any invasive surgery like knee replacement surgery comes with a number of complications; anesthesia complications infection, blood clots (DVT/PE), nerve and artery damage, fractures, loosening of implants, long recovery, medical complications etc. The risks of stem cell treatment are far lower than those of surgery. The main risk is an infection at the stem cell extraction and injection sites, which is extremely rare.
What are the different treatments within the Stem cells umbrella?
There are a plethora of treatments available for different stages of Osteoarthritis, tendonitis, joint pain, musculoskeletal issues, and sports injuries.
Stem cells treatments like Goldic® L-PRP, Lipogems ® Mesenchymal Stem Cell Injections, SVF, BMAC, and Synthesis are just to name a few. Choosing the right one for your condition is a decision our Regenerative Orthopaedic Experts make at Regenesis Orthobiologics.
Finding out if it is the right treatment for you.
Not everyone with knee problems is a candidate for stem cell therapy. Making an appointment to be assessed by our own team of stem cell treatment doctors is the best approach to find out if you are suitable. To acquire a thorough review of your knee problem and condition, this will involve a complete consultation and physical examination as well as organizing and getting X- rays or MRI scans.
This allows our experts to find the best possible treatment option for you using the wide array of non-invasive treatments we offer at Regenesiss.
