Arthritis is a common medical condition affecting your joints. Are your inflamed joints resulting in nagging pain and loss of mobility? Many doctors treat symptoms, but we focus on using regenerative medicine to address the underlying causes of your pain, without complicated surgeries or medication that can lead to long-term dependencies. Our doctor has been helping patients in New Jersey and the Tri-state area to get all-natural pain relief for almost 40 years.
Arthritis Pain Relief
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Another alternative medicine treatment offered at our medical clinic that’s suitable for pain relief is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. By injecting PRP, containing growth factors called cytokines, into your painful joints, your body’s natural healing properties are triggered.
PRP stimulates tissue regeneration and may repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or bone that may be the cause of your aching joints. PRP is processed from a sample of your blood. The injections contain a concentrate of platelets. This short outpatient procedure is a safe treatment since your own blood is used.
In addition to offering you chiropractic care to help ease your arthritis symptoms, we can customize a laser therapy regimen for you that’s suitable for various types of arthritis. Cold lasers release targeted light that works by reducing inflammation and stimulating the re-growth of new cells to promote healing and help you recover faster.
What Causes Arthritis?
Although researchers cannot definitively say what causes arthritis, they agree that you might be genetically predisposed to develop the disease. Other factors that may contribute to you developing arthritis include:
- Obesity since extra weight places added strain on the joints
- Joint damage from an accident, trauma, or previous injury
- Daily activities that require repetitive movements of a joint
- Joint degeneration due to aging
Types of Arthritis
Determining the type of arthritis that you have will help us identify the right treatment options for you. There are five main types of arthritis:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Juvenile arthritis
This is a progressive disorder; it gradually gets worse with time. We do everything we can to treat the pain and associated symptoms so that you can get back to work, caring for your children and grandchildren, and all of the other things you love. Whether you have arthritis in your hands, in your knee, or in your back, our doctor can recommend a treatment to provide you with all-natural pain relief.
