     Most of our patients who receive human tissue cellular allograft treatments see positive results in both joint space and symptom relief within 90 days. However there is a small percentage whose joint space hardly improves or makes no visible changes (on x-ray) in this time frame. If this has happens to you, this does not necessarily mean the treatment didn’t work. In our clinic, we see the most changes in patient’s joint conditions within the first 90 days after an allograft. However many allografts often continue activating tissue, improving joint space and helping the body heal for the following six months to a year.

     When approaching a regenerative medicine treatment program, it’s important to give your body necessary time to heal. Most of degenerative joints took years to get that way, and so it’s not unreasonable to give the body at least a year (sometimes longer) for a full recovery. Sometimes there are patients whose joints are so far gone, regenerative medicine may not work enough. Fortunately, this is a very small percentage, and given the risks involved with surgery, regenerative medicine is an option that MUST be tried first, regardless of how ‘far gone’ the joint is. If you have a degenerative joint that’s been slow or tough to change…. Hang in there!

     At Solutions Integrated Medicine, we are results driven and it’s important to us you get the results you’re looking for. There are often a number of options we can try that may offer a boost to the progress of ‘slow healer’ patients. We offer several different types of regenerative medicine allograft products and sometimes a change in therapy or additional products may be necessary.
