Carpal Tunnel Treatment
While there are many treatments and medications that are available to take for Carpal Tunnel, our doctors focus on the least invasive and painless treatment using Platelet rich plasma and stem cells. Platelet rich plasma is a type of regenerative medicine that uses the platelets in your blood. For this treatment, your blood will be drawn, and the red blood cells and platelets will be separated. This concentration of platelets is then injected into the area that is in pain.
Platelet rich plasma is highly effective in treating the root of the problem and allowing that area to heal and repair itself. Due to platelet rich plasma using your bodies naturally occurring platelets, this treatment has little to no side effects or complications. This un-invasive treatment also has little recovery time so you can get back to your daily activities almost immediately.
Stem cell injections utilizes Mesenchymal stem cells from Wharton’s Jelly. These Mesenchymal stem cells are young, concentrated stem cells that are ethically sourced by donating mothers. Mesenchymal stem cells are found in the umbilical cord, tissue that is traditionally disposed of. Mother nor child is negatively affected when donating this tissue. Our bodies all contain stem cells. However, as we age, these stem cells age with us, becoming less effective. Because stem cell injections are a natural treatment, they have a low risk for rejection or allergy. Many find stem cell treatments as a great option for natural pain relief.
Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Injections are:
- Low risk for allergy
- Low risk for rejection
