It is estimated that one in four Americans above the age of 25 and almost half of the population above the age of 50 have some form of recurrent joint pain. Last year over 1 million Americans had joint replacement surgery in an attempt to deal with their constant joint pain and arthritis. Physically active individuals and athletes have had to give up on what they love doing due to these debilitating and lifestyle-limiting conditions. None of us are immune to this condition.
Types of joint pain
Joint pain affects many areas of the body, such as your:
- Heels (sometimes known as plantar fasciitis)
Common treatment options:
Steroid Injections & Painkillers
Steroids and other anti-inflammatory agents cause adverse side effects that can be significant and dangerous, affecting the other organ systems. Painkillers, at best, offer marginal and temporary pain relief. Acting alone, these treatments result in little to no improvement on the condition of your joint.
Arthroscopy & Surgery
Primarily a means to manage and moderate your pain, arthroscopy and surgery carry a lot of risk as well as prolonged rehabilitation with significant downtime. Pain relief may not be complete, and it is likely that you will never reach your desired level of functional mobility. Studies now show patients who undergo arthroscopy require joint replacement a decade sooner. There are some well-defined indications where surgery may have a role to play such as a complete ACL tear of the knee or an extensive labral tear in shoulder or hip joints. Majority of the other conditions show no benefit from surgery.
A new approach?
Your body has the ability to heal and renew itself. By isolating your regenerative cells and injecting them into the joint that is causing you so much pain, your tissues can regrow and restore themselves. This procedure called “Cell Therapy” is minimally invasive, very safe and offers a quick and easy recovery.
There are a variety of scientific studies that show how regenerative cell therapy can help those with joint pain. This cutting edge science has been studied and put into practice at the Goswami clinic for the past 10 years.
Don’t let your joint pain control what activities you can and can’t do. By harnessing the power of your stem cells, our regenerative treatments can repair your joint. The procedure is safe, quick and involves minimal downtime.
If you are considering joint replacement surgery, we encourage you to weigh all your options before moving forward with a risky procedure that has a long and painful recovery process.
