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 including but not limited to tendonopathy and arthritis. It is important to sort out exactly what is causing the joint pain before choosing a method of treatment.
How can we help?
IF you live in the Bellevue & Seattle areas, Acute Pain Therapies offers regenerative treatments including PRP, bone marrow stem cell, prolotherapy, amniotic fluid allograft injections, alpha-2-macroglobulin (a2m), interleukin receptor antagonist protein (iRap) and other potential options in Bellevue. These therapies encourage the body to heal itself in an accelerated fashion. The body’s various “moving parts” are in a balance between degradation and healing. 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. Regenerative treatments are thought to tip the scales towards healing and away from the slow breakdown.
