Hand and Wrist Pain
Cellular Therapy Is An Alternative To Hand and Wrist Surgery
Many patients have been turning to Cell Therapy as a better alternative to surgery.
Hand and Wrist pain can be the result of an injury, such as a fracture or a sprain, or of a medical condition, such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, or tendonitis. Surgery is often recommended as a treatment for several hand and wrist conditions. However, surgery requires hospitalization and the recovery may be relatively slow. There are always risks and complications associated with surgery, such as post-surgical pain, reactions to anesthesia, infections, or nerve damage, for example. Furthermore, in many cases, hand and wrist functionality may not be fully recovered after surgery.
Cell Therapy can help provide cells to degenerated regions of tendons and joints in the hand and wrist, helping to reduce pain and improve mobility, and doing so with an easier and faster recovery and with significantly less complications.
How Does Cellular Therapy for Hand and Wrist Pain Work?
The aim of using Cell Therapy is to support the natural regeneration of our tissues to suppress inflammation, relieve pain, and restore mobility and full elbow functionality.
We utilize the patient’s own cells to help repair the damaged hand and wrist tissues naturally. These cells can be retrieved from the bone marrow. They are aspirated with minimal discomfort, and then injected into the injured area of wrist or hand along with concentrated platelet rich plasma. Platelet rich plasma is a portion of the patient’s own blood that has a high concentration of growth factors that can activate the cells and prompt them to produce additional growth factors and anti-inflammatory molecules. Platelet rich plasma is obtained by a simple method of centrifuging of a blood sample.
With the support of platelet rich plasma, cellular therapy may provide the precursor cells for tissue repair and may also change the environment in the injured tissue from inflammatory to healing and regenerating. Over time, the cells can potentially repair and regenerate the damaged tissues, resulting in relief of pain and improvement in mobility and function.
Typically, a single cellular injection should be sufficient to yield good results for most problems. Frequently we add platelet rich plasma injections to reinforce the activity of the cells. We do all our cell procedures under ultrasound or X-Ray fluoroscopic guidance to increase accuracy and decrease the likelihood of complications.

Is Orthobiological Cell Treatment Right For You?
Although Orthobiologic Treatments are considered by some people to be experimental, various research studies show that cellular therapy and platelet rich plasma injections may provide excellent relief from joint and musculoskeletal pain and ongoing inflammation.
