Human tissue cellular allografts are now offering a real option for patients with deteriorating joints or facing replacement surgery. Taken from placental and umbilical tissue, allografts are a type of cell transplant into a damaged joint. It’s sounds complicated but it’s really not. When used for tx of joint pain/damage, it’s a simple injection into the joint. The whole process takes about an hour. The procedure is natural, totally safe and there is no chance of rejection. There are no side effects, and incredibly…. No down time! Besides actual treatment time, we do recommend rehab directly following an allograft injection for the best results; this is generally 12 weeks long and is extremely important. Taking a joint through normal ranges of motion while it’s healing is paramount for establishing a more functional joint. Rehab also helps restore proper strength and flexibility to soft tissue structures that help stabilize the joint. This is also important for helping to rebalance and realign the joint to ensure the longest lasting result. In some cases, chiropractic care is necessary for either joint alignement or additional treatment for the spine.
