Joint Regeneration Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Chronic joint pain can be the result of an injury, like a fall or auto accident, where your joint suffers direct trauma that damages the bones or the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the joint.

You can also develop persistent joint pain due to age-related changes in your joint and conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis. These issues can affect any joint in your body but are most common in the joints that make up your:

  • Hips
  • Spine
  • Knees
  • Shoulders

As the bones and soft tissues of your joint break down over time, your pain increases and begins to interfere with your ability to stay active. You can also experience a limited range of motion in the joint due to chronic inflammation.

When you’re no longer able to tolerate the pain or your physical activity is restricted, you should schedule an evaluation at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center. After a thorough diagnostic evaluation, your provider can determine if joint injections are the right treatment for you.

What are my options for joint injections?

The staff at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center offers a variety of joint injections designed to relieve your chronic pain and improve your mobility.

Depending on your specific condition or type of injury, you may benefit from joint injections that contain:

  • Stem cells
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Your ANWAN Wellness Medical Center provider determines if joint injections are a treatment option for you after a comprehensive review of your medical history and the root cause of your joint pain.

How do joint injections work?

Joint injections that use PRP and/or stem cells work by stimulating your body’s own healing processes. These substances are found naturally in your body and are important for their ability to repair damaged cells. Injecting stem cells and PRP into areas of the joint affected by injury or disease stimulates healing in the cells of the muscles, tendons, bones, and ligaments that make up your joint to provide long-term relief of pain and mobility issues.

Your ANWAN Wellness Medical Center provider obtains PRP from samples of your own blood. They use mesenchymal stem cells that come from donated umbilical cords and amniotic fluid that are prescreened for safety. Many times, the team combines PRP with stem cells for joint injections to optimize your results.

The physicians also offer injections of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that cushions your joint and helps the bones glide smoothly when the joint is in motion.
