At Valley Physical Medicine, non-invasive medical procedures are the mainstay of our practice. Using the most up to date techniques, our staff treats patients as whole people, providing a comprehensive diagnostic assessment in order to design a customized strategy for relief from medical concerns. Regenerative medicine has advanced to a point that, at Valley Physical Medicine, we offer it as part of our array of treatments, designed to help our patients attain their wellness goals and achieve a higher quality of life.
For instance, until recently, treatment options for people with osteoarthritis of the knee were limited. Steroid injections, joint replacement surgery, and physical therapy were often the only treatment options. Now, regenerative medicine for knee osteoarthritis is available, at Valley Physical Medicine. Regenerative medicine also has applications for treating Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and degenerative arthritis.
Regenerative medicine works with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, regenerative medicine actually promotes repair of the body, restoring degenerated tissue. Regenerative medicine also includes hyaluronan, which eases pain and restores mobility by lubricating joints and tendons. This therapy fits well with Valley Physical Medicine’s integrated approach to wellness, addressing the source of issues, rather than just treating the symptoms.
