More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children suffer from some type of arthritis in the U.S. It is the leading cause disability in America. Arthritis is very common but is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease; it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.
Common arthritis joint symptoms include inflammation, swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years, but may progress or get worse over time. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.
The symptomatic therapy for musculoskeletal system pathology consists of non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These drugs relieve pain, eliminate inflammation in the joints, but do not accelerate the recovery of the affected cartilage tissue. The only method that is able to reverse the degeneration in most patients is by using stem cell injections for arthritis which has been successfully used in highly reputable Swiss clinic Swiss Medica for many years. Regenerative medicine is a powerful tool, which may help to improve the quality of life for people suffering with arthritis.

If you’ve injured your knee meniscus, knee cartilage, ACL or MCL ligaments, or you have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis, you may want to consider knee focused regenerative medicine. Traditionally, treatment for these conditions require surgery (arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears or total knee joint replacement), months of rehab, and increased risks.
With recent strides in healthcare and science, alternative procedures are now available that can alleviate your knee pain and the conditions that prompted it with an in-office injection procedure. Unlike traditional surgery, regenerative medicine patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day, and most patients experience very little downtime following the procedure.
If chronic knee pain, osteoarthritis arthritis or joint pain is limiting your daily routine or preventing you from pursuing activities you enjoy, regenerative medicine may be the answer you’ve been looking for! Stem cells have gained notoriety over the last few years as new methods are being used that hadn’t been tried before. We offer the latest regenerative medicine techniques as a natural, effective method for helping treat your injuries and avoid surgery.
Shoulder / Rotator Cuff
One condition that occurs when a shoulder tendon becomes sore and irritated is called rotator cuff tendonitis. This condition, if left untreated, can cause the tendon to break down and result in a chronic, long-term condition called tendonitis. If you participate in activities involving repetitive or overhead arm movements (such as weightlifting, tennis, baseball, painting and carpentry) you’re at risk for developing rotator cuff tendonitis. Our team can help determine the cause of your shoulder pain and provide a plan to manage your pain and improve the health and strength of your shoulder.
Regenerative medicine for Shoulders
Some cases of shoulder pain resolve with conservative treatment, but not always. regenerative medicine may help alleviate shoulder pain and restore joint damage with a non-invasive injection procedure. Patients typically experience little or no down time from the procedure.
Regenerative medicine has been successfully applied as an alternative to conventional treatments, such as taking NSAID medications, when pain and debilitation persists despite these treatments. Regenerative medicine is also used as an alternative to steroid injections for rotator cuff tendonitis.
Regenerative medicine is intended to help your body heal injured tissue as opposed to masking the symptoms of the injury. Initial improvement and reduction in pain may be experienced very quickly, with continued improvement as the healing progresses. Studies have shown regenerative medicine to be very effective at relieving pain, while MRI images have confirmed successful tissue repair following stem cell injections. The need for surgery can be greatly reduced by treating injured tissues before the damage progresses and the condition is irreversible.
Hip Pain, Osteonecrosis, Bursitis and More
Chronic hip pain makes it difficult to go about your day. If you suffer from Avascular Necrosis, Osteonecrosis, Bursitis, Arthritis, Tendinopathy, a Labral / labrum tear or other common hip conditions, regenerative medicine may help heal and alleviate your hip problems and improve the body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
With recent strides in healthcare and science, regenerative medicine – a procedure involving nothing more than a single in-office injection – is now available.
This simple procedure can alleviate hip pain and the conditions that prompted it in the first place! Regenerative medicine patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day as receiving the injection, and most patients experience very little downtime.
Aging is a complex process in which cells become progressively damaged over time and finally die. New stem cells and adjunctive therapies potentially slow down or reverse this process. Those cells possess a unique anti-aging effect by means of regenerating and repairing organs damaged by stress and various toxins we are exposed to in our daily life and by improving immune functions.
Anti aging therapy drastically improves capacity of physical activities, hair quality and rental function. Fantastic results in anti aging treatment were shown at all age groups, regardless of gender.
With regenerative medicine you are replenishing the supply of stem cells to allow the body to repair and rejuvenate organs including your skin. It may improve the quality of your skin, reduce neck and back pain, reduced fatigue and tiredness, improved energy, emotional and mental improvement, reduced stiffness of joints and reduction of the effects of degenerative diseases.
Ankle & Foot Pain
Almost half of adults age 60 to 80 have arthritis in their feet and don’t even know it because they experience no symptoms. If you’re not one of the lucky ones, your ankle and foot arthritis is likely to cause these symptoms:
- Pain and stiffness, making it difficult to walk normally
- Tender joints that feel warm to the touch
- Misshapen ankles and toes
- Numbness and tingling spreading from the affected joint
Addressing Foot and Ankle Pain with regenerative medicine
When the above treatment options aren’t enough, you have another option before you resort to surgery: Regenerative medicine. Thanks to recent strides in healthcare and science, regenerative medicine is more effective than ever at addressing arthritis of the ankle and foot. The procedure is simple and non-surgical, involving nothing more than a single in-office injection.
Regenerative medicine can often successfully replace conventional arthritis treatments, such as taking anti-inflammatory medications.
