What is chronic joint pain?
Chronic joint pain is on-going pain in one of the major joints: shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Chronic joint pain can be caused by many different things. It is important to sort out exactly what is causing the joint pain before choosing a method of treatment.
How can we help chronic joint pain?
For arthritis, tendinosis (sometimes incorrectly called tendonitis), and ligamentous problems, Acute Pain Therapies offer PRP and stem cell injection therapies in Bellevue. These therapies encourage the body to heal itself in an accelerated fashion. Joints, tendons, and ligaments are in constantly in a balance between healing and breakdown. Some people’s bodies, by way of genetics or their lifestyle or a combination, tend to tip slightly towards breakdown. Thus long term pain and functional impairment develop. PRP and stem cell treatments tip the scales towards healing rather than the slow breakdown.
