Get Regenerative medicine NOW!

     An unfortunate truth is it seems most all humans live their last 10+ years with some amount of joint pain if not crippled with it; arthritis is another, very real pandemic. Besides all the pain and trouble getting around it causes, degenerative joints also greatly contribute to an overall decline of health. Joint pain and weakness cause us to lower our activity levels/eliminate exercise. As the body’s fitness declines, it’s not long before systemic diseases take hold; the common killers – heart disease, diabetes, high BP & cholesterol are highest and most serious in people who don’t (or can’t) exercise.

     Orthopedic doctors often tell their patients to wait as long as possible before getting a joint replacement. This is because prosthetic joints only last 10-12 years and if you get one when you’re too young, you’ll have to get another… when you’re older and not as resilient as you were for the first one. In regenerative medicine, we urge our patients to deal with their joint problems as soon as possible – do not wait until your joints are bone on bone and facing joint replacement surgery. While regenerative medicine is one of the only treatments offering real hope for this condition, the treatment process for advanced cases are always more costly, take longer and recovery not as complete.

     So there is much wisdom in staying on top of joint deterioration. Regenerative medicine treatments help you repair damaged tissue to keep your joint spaces healthy and thick. There is definitely an advantage in catching joint degeneration early; the more joint space you have to work with, the less regenerative medicine it often takes, and the better chances you have at making the most complete recovery. While it’s never too late to try regenerative medicine, many patients are finding tremendous benefit in getting treated sooner rather than later, when there’s no other option. Keeping your joints healthy and strong for as long as possible helps you stay active, so you can live a healthier life with less pain - longer, into your later years.
