Stem cell therapy can also use nonautologous stem cells, which yield much higher concentrations of MSCs, are epigenetically young, and do not require surgery. They are, however, associated with a risk for viral and bacterial infection and need to be stored in liquid nitrogen. Stem cells have gained a reputation as a miracle treatment and potential cure for many ailments. The cells have the potential to provide replacement cells for any part of the body -- blood, brain, bones or organs.Book An Appointment
Pain management, pain medicine, pain control or algiatry, is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. Pain management can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain.
Types of Pain Management
Platelet Rich Plasma, referred to as “PRP’, is a non-operative, permanent solution for conditions such as arthritis and ligament/tendon sprains and tears. Utilizing the body’s natural healing process, It is a concentration of platelets that are injected into the damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints to promote tissue repair and accelerate healing. Platelets are rich in growth and healing factors which means, on average, an injured individual can get back to a pain-free life in four to six weeks.Book An Appointment
Back injections may help treat two major back pain problems: Inflammation or damage to a nerve, usually in the neck or the low back. Doctors call this “radiculopathy.” The problem originates where the nerveexits the spine. Spinal stenosis, which means that the spine has narrowed. This can happen because a herniated disk is pressing on the spine, or because a bone spur is jutting into that space, or, less commonly, if a tumor presses on the spine. Spinal stenosis compresses the nerves inside.Book An Appointment
Most frozen shoulder treatment involves controlling shoulder pain and preserving as much range of motion in the shoulder as possible. A physical therapist can teach you range-of-motion exercises to help recover as much mobility in your shoulder as possible. Your commitment to doing these exercises is important to optimize recovery of your mobility. Continue to use the involved shoulder and extremity as much as possible given your pain and range-of-motion limits. Applying heat or cold to your shoulder can help relieve pain.Book An Appointment
Sciatica is pain that starts in your lower back and shoots down through your legs and sometimes into your feet. It happens when something in your body - maybe a herniated disk or bone spur – compresses your sciatic nerve. Some people experience sharp, intense pain, and others get tingling, weakness, and numbness in their legs. It causes pain and discomfort, but there are many effective treatments for it. Most people with sciatica don’t end up needing surgery, and about half get better within 6 weeks with only rest and medication.Book An Appointment
Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis - swelling of the tendons -- that causes pain in the elbow and arm. These tendons are bands of tough tissue that connect the muscles of your lower arm to the bone. Despite its name, you can still get tennis elbow even if you've never been near a tennis court. Instead, any repetitive gripping activities, especially if they use the thumb and first two fingers, may contribute to tennis elbow. It can pop up in people of any age, but it's most common at about age 40.
This inflammation of the plantar fascia - the tissue that connects your heel to your toes - is very common, especially for runners. With the right treatment, this condition usually goes away in several months. To speed up your recovery and rule out other injuries, you may want to see your doctor. To make an ice pack, wrap a towel around a plastic bag filled with crushed ice or around a package of frozen corn or peas. Put it on your heel 3 to 4 times a day for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.Book An Appointment
