If you are suffering from joint pain, a sports injury, or chronic back pain, it can be difficult to know where to turn.
While modern surgical techniques have advanced and can be less dangerous and less invasive than in the past, it is important that you seek out alternatives to surgery whenever possible. Find out more about our clinic, our procedures, and how regenerative medicine could help you resolve a painful condition and avoid surgery.
Are there alternatives to surgery or painkillers for chronic back pain?
While standard medicine may have steered you towards a surgical treatment or prescribed painkillers so you can make it through the day in comfort, these treatments have serious drawbacks. Alternative treatments can be effective in reducing pain, restoring function, and increasing your quality of life. At Full Range Spine & Ortho, we offer a full range of the most advanced alternatives to assist patients to recover, restore motion, and heal.
What non-invasive treatments are available to treat musculoskeletal conditions?
Damaged knees, shoulders, wrists, and elbows are a common problem. Whether the result of an activity or sport, resolving the problem effectively is critical. While there are surgical options to treat painful conditions, modern orthopedic treatments have come to the forefront in treating many of these injuries or conditions. Non-invasive, non-surgical treatments are available for joint pain, disc herniation, torn ligaments, meniscus tears, sciatica, tendonitis or tendinosis, and a full range of sports injuries such as tennis elbow and impact-related conditions such as whiplash and many others.
What is a physiatrist?
A physiatrist is a physician certified in the medical specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation. This branch of medicine is often called “sports medicine,” as professional athletes call upon physiatrists to seek alternatives to surgery and get back to peak performance as quickly as possible. In fact, this medical specialty is available to all patients suffering a musculoskeletal problem, such as chronic pain or injury. Treatment performed by a physiatrist are non-surgical in nature.
What is PRP?
PRP, or “platelet rich plasma” has become a standard treatment to aid in healing and regenerating a damaged area of the body. It has been used for decades in the medical field, and has been found to produce remarkable results in other applications, including joint injuries and pain. PRP is created from your own blood and has a high concentration of stem cells, along with the natural growth factors known to help regenerate and heal the target area.
Can the body regenerate and rebuild damaged areas?
Advancements in medical science have brought regenerative medicine to a new level. The use of PRP or A2M injections are two of the most remarkable treatments to trigger the natural regenerative processes of the body and ward off pain and further degeneration in joints or other areas of the body. At Full Range Ortho, we focus our work upon non-invasive regenerative treatments for athletes and others who live with an injury or chronic pain.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Stem cells are harvested from your blood and then concentrated. These stem cells, when injected into a damaged area, have the ability to transform into the type of cell in the area and create a remarkable improvement in motion, function, and pain reduction.
