Have you been feeling aches and pains in your joints? Noticing that “Father Time” has been knocking on your door? Or those simple tasks such as walking up a flight of stairs, lifting grocery bags or even taking a jump shot have now become daunting or next to impossible tasks? Well, you don’t have to fret any longer; thanks to innovative new procedures in regenerative medicine you can once again perform those tasks at ease.
Procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Autologous adipose (fat) – derived stem / stromal cell (AD – SC) therapy is an effective regenerative treatment used to repair damaged musculoskeletal connective tissue ranging from ligaments, tendons, cartilage, discs, muscles, nerve tissue, bone, etc. The wonderful aspect of these types of treatment is not only can they be performed within a doctor’s office rather than a hospital setting, but that this treatment avoids invasive surgical procedures such as knee, hip or shoulder replacements which also subsequently require weeks if not months of physical therapy rehabilitation. Wouldn’t you rather prefer a simple injection as opposed to a hack-and-saw treatment? In addition, if you’re curious about how the physician will know where to administer the injection, have no fear because the procedures are performed under ultrasound guidance which allow for accurate needle placement.
If you need some proof on how effective PRP or AD-SC therapy is you can ask certain sports stars like, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal,Alex Rodriguez or even Hulk Hogan to name a few. The proponents of these innovative, non-invasive regenerative medicine surgical procedures demonstrate, that if these individuals whose job requires strenuous physical activity not only underwent these procedures hoping to return to the job they love, but they had returned to their respective sports fields new and improved.
