Joint Replacement Alternatives for Patients with Osteoarthritis, Sports Injuries & Other Joint Conditions
Learning more about joint replacement alternatives is an essential part of making informed, educated decisions regarding your treatment plan. If you are struggling with a chronic injury or degenerative joint condition and think you have considered all of the nonsurgical therapies available, Dennis M. Lox, MD, at Florida Spine & Sports Medicine Center would like to tell you about the many benefits of regenerative therapy.
In recent years, regenerative medicine has helped many patients find relief from pain and achieve enhanced mobility without the need for aggressive surgeries like joint replacement. Regenerative therapies, such as stem cell treatments and platelet rich plasma therapy, help the body repair and regenerate tissue from the inside. Unlike conservative treatments that are aimed at managing symptoms, or surgery that involves risks and an arduous rehabilitation, stem cell therapy is an outpatient procedure that can help joint cartilage, tendon tissue, or muscle tissue renew itself.
Joint replacement alternatives may be suited for active individuals suffering from the effects of:
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Meniscal tears
- Shoulder pain
- Rotator cuff tears
- Impingement syndrome
