Even seemingly minor injuries can cause pain, reduced range of motion and other problems that last weeks or months. Fortunately, regenerative medicine treatments offered by your Elko, NV, chiropractors, Dr. Wade Taylor and Dr. Shannon McKinney, provide a natural way to speed healing.
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine takes advantage of your body's natural repair process to heal injured tissues and joints. Rather than just treating your symptoms, treatments trigger your body to rebuild and regrow crucial cells and tissues. Regenerative medicine offers an innovative, effective way to help you heal from injuries and reduce your risk of new injuries.
What types of regenerative medicine treatments are available?
Regenerative medicine treatments currently available include:
- Prolotherapy: Injecting a solution containing saline or dextrose into the injured part of your body stimulates the growth of connective tissue essential for the repair of damaged tissues.
- Cartilage Regeneration: Cartilage, a flexible tissue at the ends of bones, helps joints move easily. Unfortunately, arthritis wears away when you have arthritis, which causes pain every time you move the joint. Although cartilage regeneration is fairly new, it appears that it could offer important pain relief benefits for people with arthritis.
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections: Injecting hyaluronic acid into arthritic or damaged joints can ease pain and swelling and promote healing. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by your body that helps lubricate your joints.
