     If you want to prolong your joints, you have to focus on the ligaments. Ligaments are a type of connective tissue; they connect your bones together. Their purpose is to support the joints during movement, and also act as cushions between the bones. When a ligament becomes damaged from injury or degeneration, the joint it’s supporting becomes unstable and painful. When the ligaments fail, the joint is doomed. If you can keep your ligaments alive and healthy longer, your joints will last longer. Fortunately there’s new science helping patients rebuild damaged connective tissue – and it’s turning back the clock on osteoarthritis and many chronic ligament disorders. Read more here….

     Ligament damage shows up in many forms. Depending on the injury or stage of degeneration, ligaments can stretch (sprain), tear (partially or completely), fray and deteriorate. In the spine, your discs are circular ligaments that can herniate or bulge into a nerve causing back, neck, arm or leg pain. When the supportive ligaments of the spine are sprained or damaged, this causes spinal instability, a painful condition that’s commonly missed after a car accident. When knees, hips or shoulder joints have worn down and are bone on bone, it’s the ligaments that have deteriorated. Plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears and frozen shoulders are types of chronic ligament disorders.

     If you want to prolong the life of your ligaments, regenerative medicine can help you. The latest scientific breakthrough products in this field are specifically designed help patients restore and repair ligament damage. Products are derived from the chorionic disc on the placenta and include a matrix of actual ligament tissue. When injected into or near any damaged, deteriorated connective tissue, it stimulates the body to heal. We have seen many patients with extremely painful chronic conditions become stronger and get much relief with regenerative medicine treatments for damaged ligaments.

     At Solutions, we offer several placental products that are very effective in helping patients with chronic ligament problems and joint issues. By repairing damage in the structures that keep your joints functional and strong, regenerative medicine can help you extend the life of your joints and keep you active and healthy longer. Chiropractic care, proper rehab after an injury, orthotics and the right nutrition are also vital components to address for the best long term ligament health as well.
