May is National Arthritis Month, a time to raise awareness about arthritis and related conditions that affect millions of people worldwide. One common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease that can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body, including the hand and wrist joints. In addition to osteoarthritis, there are other hand and wrist conditions such as carpal tunnel, de Quervain's tenosynovitis, and stenosing tenosynovitis that can cause pain and discomfort in the hand and wrist.
Fortunately, regenerative healthcare offers several treatments that can help alleviate the symptoms of these conditions and promote healing. Here are some of the regenerative healthcare treatments that can help with hand and wrist conditions:
Human tissue allograft treatments - Human tissue allografts are biological products made from donated human tissue that are used to promote healing and tissue regeneration. These treatments can be used to repair damaged tissue in the hand and wrist and can be especially effective for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments - PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors that is derived from the patient's own blood. PRP treatments can help reduce inflammation and promote healing in the hand and wrist, making it an effective treatment for conditions such as de Quervain's tenosynovitis and stenosing tenosynovitis.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) - EPAT is a non-invasive treatment that uses acoustic pressure waves to promote healing and tissue regeneration. It can be an effective treatment for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and can help reduce pain and inflammation in the hand and wrist.
Functional Physical Rehabilitation - Physical therapy can be an effective treatment for hand and wrist conditions, especially when combined with regenerative treatments such as human tissue allografts, PRP, or EPAT. Functional PT focuses on functional movement patterns, helping to reduce pain and improve mobility.
Regenerative healthcare offers several treatments that can help alleviate the symptoms of hand and wrist conditions such as osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, de Quervain's tenosynovitis, and stenosing tenosynovitis. If you are suffering from any of these conditions, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional who specializes in regenerative treatments to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
