We Treat the Causes
Limited treatment options for Osteoarthritis exist, and the current therapies are all palliative. They only address the symptoms but fail to address the root cause: cartilage damage from the activity of degradative enzymes (proteases) that destroy the arthritic joint. That’s why we use novel treatments to operate at the molecular level. Successful treatment must combat the degradative enzymes at a molecular level.
Standard Non-operative Treatment Options
- Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
- Corticosteroid injections
- Physical Therapy, Weight Reduction, Bracing
- Temporary symptomatic relief
- Treats the symptoms, not the cause
- Many side effects
Hip Intervention for Osteoarthritis | Evidence-Based Care
By chance, while I was writing the Blog this morning, I turned on my computer and found this greeting on the five-year anniversary from a patient who had undergone a Bone Marrow Concentrate/Stem Cell/Growth Factor hip intervention for osteoarthritis.
“Have to say from year four to five no deterioration. In fact, maybe feeling a bit better.
– Still maintaining a daily self-initiated PT regime for leg strength. That soreness (uncomfortable) mostly right below the knee cap and back of pelvis seems to have dissipated.
– Finally developing a normal gait.”
I will let the facts speak for themselves:
The above record was executed by the patient; and thus, objective. It is our means, in part, of documenting outcomes on a continuing basis of the patients we treat; thus, allowing us to lead the Midwest in evidence-based regenerative medicine and Cellular Orthopedics using biologics and not a knife. Then, there is the topic over which I am continually queried, “how soon will I improve and how long will it last?”
When treating an arthritic joint with biologics, the partial improvement may be immediate, or maximum medical improvement may take months, perhaps years. If you want to avoid a knife for an orthopedic impairment, call (847) 390-7666 to schedule your consultation. You may continue reading more at my website: www.sheinkopmd.com.
