Does Joint Pain of Arthritis Keep You From Being Active?

The Pacific Northwest is a great place live an active lifestyle. There are trails to hike and bike, rivers and streams to fish, beaches to explore and have picnics.

Does your arthritis or joint pain keep you from doing the activities you enjoy? Have pain relievers given you temporary relief only to have the pain return, worse than before? Now there is an exciting new field of medicine called Regenerative Medicine – a natural treatment that stimulates your body’s healing mechanisms to repair damaged joints and provide lasting pain relief.

Why Do We Have Joint Pain?

Pain is your body’s way of telling you there is an injury that needs your attention. If you break your leg, a doctor puts it in a cast to immobilize it so it can heal. With arthritis, the joints do not suddenly become damaged; they cannot be put in a cast to heal. Your joints degenerate slowly over time. At first, the pain is minor and you “tough it out.” You take pain relievers or cortisone shots. These stop the pain for a while, but do not help heal the joint. The pain relievers wear off and the pain is back. Eventually the damage gets severe and so does the pain. It becomes difficult to do the activities you enjoy. Your joint may become so damaged that the only solution left is replacement surgery.

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative Medicine is a natural treatment where healthy cells and natural growth factors are injected into your joint. These cells and growth factors activate your body’s healing mechanisms to repair the damaged cartilage and joint. Your joint becomes healthier and you have little to no pain. You can enjoy an active life again!
