Regenerative Medicine A Modern Approach to Healthcare
Stem Cell Therapy
Pain Specialists at West Michigan Pain now offer Stem Cell Therapy. The state-of-the-art, non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure requires little to no down-time. The treatment has produced ground-breaking results for many patients, including those considering knee replacement surgery. Some patients report an immediate reduction in pain after their first treatment and many more can resume their active lifestyles within three to six months./p>
Unlike invasive knee replacement surgery which requires a metal or plastic prosthesis, Stem Cells heal your joints and repair tissue and cartilage naturally.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
West Michigan Pain Specialists also offer Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP). PRP is a ground breaking, non-surgical treatment option that relieves pain by naturally promoting the healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This rapidly emerging technique has had dramatic results for treating patients with many conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, and ligament sprains and tears.
Platelet Rich Plasma activates growth factors and stem cells to help repair the tissue, calm osteoarthritic symptoms and decrease inflammation. The specialists at West Michigan Pain have extensive experience when it comes to knee pain management and treatment. PRP has proven to work well for knee pain and is an alternative to steroids and surgery. It’s a same-day, in-clinic procedure that will relieve your knee pain by alleviating the root cause of your condition. And unlike traditional pain injections that wear off over time, PRP therapy presents a long lasting, permanent solution.
