How Long Will The Results From Regenerative Medicine Last?

    Once you get more joint space and regenerative changes in your joint from a human tissue cellular allograft, how long the results last depend on a number of factors. One factor is how hard you are on the joint after the procedure. Certain activities (like heavy weight lifting for example) will be harder on the joints and tend to shorten their life. Overall, if the patient is reasonable with their activities, they should expect the same amount of life in the joint as it was once before, taking as long to degenerate as it first did.

     It should also be noted that human tissue cellular allograft products and therapy for joint degeneration have not been utilized long enough to really know all the long term effects. Studies do however, show a definite reversal of arthritic diseases starting from the point of injection. The use of human cellular tissue allografts for treatment of joint pain and degenerative arthritis has been FDA approved.

     While we cannot make any promises about how long our treatments will last, we do everything possible to ensure a successful result. At Solutions Integrated Medicine, we take post x-rays at 30 days after injection and again at 90 days before releasing the patient. We compare the pre and post x-rays with the patient so they can see the changes for themselves. The personalized rehab and precision chiropractic we offer ensure proper alignment and soft tissue balance for a stronger, better functioning joint that will last the longest.
