Dealing with chronic joint pain or injuries can be frustrating and debilitating. Many people resort to pain medications or even surgery to find relief, but these options come with risks and don’t always provide lasting results.
However, there are innovative new treatment options that can help resolve these problems by harnessing your body’s own healing abilities. In a recent webinar, Dr. Siddharth Tambar, a regenerative medicine specialist, provided an overview of how these treatments work and the conditions they can effectively treat.
Key Topics Covered:
- An introduction to regenerative medicine and how it utilizes the body’s own healing abilities to treat injuries and degenerative conditions.
- Why regenerative medicine treatments are safer and often more effective than traditional surgical or non-surgical options for many orthopedic conditions.
- The conditions that regenerative treatments can help, including arthritis, tendonitis, ligament/tendon tears, back pain, and joint injuries.
- What makes a regenerative medicine expert: an emphasis on nonsurgical options, image-guidance, understanding inflammation, experience with biologics like platelets and stem cells, and transparency about treatment expectations.
- Explanations of key regenerative medicine concepts like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), prolotherapy, mesenchymal stem cells, and image-guided injections.
- Details on the regenerative medicine treatment process, typical costs, number of injections needed, and expectations for improvement.
- Multiple case studies showing regenerative treatments helping resolve knee/ACL injuries, rotator cuff tears, ankle arthritis, and other conditions.
- Advice that surgery should often be a last resort, and regenerative options explored first for many common orthopedic problems.
- Regenerative treatments like PRP and stem cells can frequently help resolve arthritis, injuries, tendonitis, and back pain without drugs or surgery.
- Regenerative medicine experts use advanced image-guidance, draw from a range of biologics, create tailored treatment plans, and offer transparency about expectations.
- Multiple case studies demonstrate regenerative treatments resolving pain and dysfunction and markedly improving diagnostic imaging.
- Patients are encouraged to explore these options before considering surgery or joint replacements for common orthopedic conditions.
