Could Therapeutic Joint Injection Therapy Be Right For You?

Cortisone injections, Medicine, and Surgery may not be the best solution for knee pain or other types of arthritis pain. When treatments like these no longer work there is a safe, non-surgical alternative, Therapeutic Joint Injection Therapy.

Therapeutic Joint Injection Therapy works without Surgery as a cushioning, protecting, lubricating and/or barrier as the primary purpose for homologous supplementation. Our injection starts the process of healing immediately by beginning to provide cushioning between the joints for relief for many types of chronic pain symptoms including:

  • Weakness and Instability
  • Popping or Crunching
  • Swelling & Stiffness
  • Redness and Warmth
  • Inability to straighten joints

How Does Therapeutic Joint Injection Work?

There are many strategies of Therapeutic Joint Injection, including the use of autogenous (self) cells and allogeneic (donor) cells, to take the place of missing tissue, effectively replacing it both structurally and functionally, or to contribute to tissue healing. The body’s innate healing response may also be leveraged to promote regeneration. The ultimate aim of Therapeutic Joint Injection is to return the patient to full health with respect to the particular condition. 

Therapeutic Joint Injection has the potential to help improve the health for a variety of conditions, and can assist in the healing process by releasing growth factors and cytokines back into the damaged tissue. 

Every year with additional research, Therapeutic Joint Injection therapies are becoming more and more common. 

The Benefits of Therapeutic Joint Injection

1

Enhanced healing and reduced pain.

Therapeutic Joint Injection focuses on addressing the root cause of pain instead of simply managing symptoms. Orthobiologic therapies do this by delivering growth factors to the injured area to aid tissue healing. This allows patients to heal and experience less pain than with traditional medicine.
2

Increased functionality.

Therapeutic Joint Injection promotes the production of collagen in the body, which strengthens tendons and tissues. When the tendons and tissues on and surrounding the joints are strengthened, they increase the range of motion in joints, allowing you to move freely and complete everyday tasks freely again.
3

Faster recovery.

The growth factors used in Therapeutic Joint Injection may help tissues and tendons, leading to faster healing. This allows you to (safely) return to your normal activities sooner.
4

Reduced risk of future injuries and pain.

Collagen tightens and strengthens the tendons in the joints, minimizing the risk of future injuries and pain.

We also offer PRP to assist in healing the body

PRP therapy begins with a collection of the patient’s blood. The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of whole blood. Practitioners then inject the concentrated platelets into the site of the injury. Platelets function as a natural reservoir for growth factors that are essential to repair injured tissues. The growth factors that the platelets stimulate tissue recovery by increasing collagen production, enhancing tendon proliferation, and tenocyte-related gene and protein expression. These growth factors also stimulate blood flow and cause the cartilage to become more firm and resilient. PRP activates tenocytes to proliferate quickly and produce collagen to repair injured tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a form of Therapeutic Joint Injection and is essentially an increased concentration of autologous platelets suspended in a small amount of plasma after centrifugation.

Platelets play a fundamental role in hemostasis and are a natural source of growth factors. Growth factors, stored within platelet a-granules, include platelet-derived growth factor (PDF), insulin-like growth factor (IF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), platelet-derived angiogenic factor (PDAF), and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-B).

The release of these growth factors is triggered by the activation of platelets that can be initiated by a variety of substances or stimuli such as thrombin, calcium chloride, or collagen. Growth factors are involved in key stages of wound healing and regenerative processes including chemotaxis, proliferation, differentiation, and angiogenesis.

We also offer Genvisc850

GenVisc 850 is a product that is injected into your knees to treat knee pain from joint inflammation and stiffness due to a disease known as osteoarthritis (OA).

GenVisc 850 is from a class of products known as hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronan (HA), which is also referred to as viscosupplementation therapy. It’s used in a nonsurgical procedure that helps supplement the viscous properties of the fluid in your knee joint. GenVisc 850 is approved for patients who have not adequately responded or have failed to find sufficient relief from simple analgesics, exercise or physical therapy.

Viscosupplementation was first used in Europe and Asia, and was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1997. Several preparations of hyaluronic acid are now commercially available and are covered by most major insurance providers including Medicare.
