Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive degenerative condition without a known cure. In young healthy joints, there is a thick layer of cartilage over the bones that allow for cushioning and smooth motion. Over time, the thickness of cartilage that cushions joints continually decreases, leading to "bone on bone" pain.
Typical treatment options for OA do nothing to restore cartilage or correct the problem. The goal of regenerative therapy for arthritis is to reduce pain and improve function by helping your body regenerate lost cartilage. This can lead to having joint pain reduced or even eliminated.
Our injections place the Wharton's Jelly extracellular matrix directly inside the joint where it can go to work amplifying the body's own repair mechanisms. Relief can last for years and in some cases pain relief and improved function can be permanent.
