Joint Pain Relief
Joint pain can potentially impact all areas of your life and overall well being. You may be experiencing discomfort in multiple body parts, including your knees, ankles, hips, shoulders, fingers, and wrists.
What’s important to remember is that your sore joints can be managed now more than ever before. With innovative treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and chiropractic care to relieve pain, our doctors can help you achieve successful pain management outcomes.
Joint pain symptoms include:
- Aches swelling, and stiffness in one or multiple areas
- Morning stiffness in and around the affected body parts
- Aches and stiffness that worsens with inactivity or physical activity
- Reduced range of motion
Treatment for Pain in the Joints
Your blood contains platelets that release growth factors used by your body to heal cuts. These healing growth factors are also valid for pain relief. Growth factors act as natural anti-inflammatories, without the associated risks and side effects of prescription medications. Regenerative components like hyaluronic acid lubricate your sore joints while stimulating healthy cartilage regrowth for long-term relief.
PRP therapy is a simple procedure that involves drawing a small sample of your blood, which is placed in a medical device to separate and concentrate blood platelets. The high concentration of platelets is reconstituted with the liquid part of your blood to form a platelet-rich plasma. PRP is then injected into the affected sites of the body. This treatment can be used for damaged ligaments and tendons around the body. As a non-invasive alternative for joint aches in the knees and hips often caused by arthritis, PRP injections are helping many patients delay or avoid surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are used to treat the following conditions:
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Hip osteoarthritis
- Shoulder rotator cuff tear
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles tendonitis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar spinal arthritis
PRP therapy is considered safe and effective with minimal risks. Since no foreign substance is injected and only your blood is used, the chances of developing an allergic reaction are unlikely.
Our Chiropractor may be able to adjust your joints similar to adjusting your back, to relieve tension, and promote efficient function. Chiropractic care generally doesn’t hurt and may be helpful in long-term relief.
