The following are conditions we treat that may cause pain:

PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME

Piriformis syndrome involves the sciatic nerve and the piriformis muscle. The piriformis is a narrow muscle that lies within the gluteal muscle with the sciatic nerve passing underneath. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, and when the nerve becomes irritated by the muscle, it can send shooting pain in the buttocks or thighs, a tingling sensation, or even numbness.

QUADRICEPS STRAIN OR PARTIAL TEAR

Straining the front muscles of the thigh is a result of a tear in fibers within the quadriceps. There are three grades that are used to determine the severity of the injury. Grade one thigh strain is the least severe and can be cured in less than a month with adequate amount of rest. It causes slight discomfort while walking and difficulty when straightening the knee. Grade two thigh strain involves the partial tearing of the fibers, shooting sharp pains during the activity of the muscles, making the bending of the knee impossible.

DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS

Degenerative arthritis is the painful inflammation of the junctures connecting the bones. It commonly results in osteoarthritis. Regenerative medicine treatments help restore other structures that have been damaged. This creates non-specialized stem cells to be an incredible tool in the treatment of degenerative arthritis.

ENTHESOPATHY

Enthesopathy is a condition that impacts the tendons and ligaments rather than the joint membranes. Regenerative medicine provides an innovated treatment to help repair damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints.

PATELLAR TENDONITIS/TENDINOSIS

Patellar tendinitis and tendinosis are both conditions associated with consistent pain in the knee area. Tendonitis consists of more inflammation of the tendon surrounding the patellar joint whereas tendinosis is strictly the tearing and failed healing of the ligament. These disorders are also known as “Jumper’s Knee” or “Sinding-Larson-Johansson Disease”.

OSGOOD SCHLATTER DISEASE

Osgood Schlatter disease is a knee injury for adolescents caused by the over usage of the knee is essentially a self-limiting condition. This is because affected individuals are unable to continue with physical activities after injuring the oblong elevation of the top front of the tibia bone.

RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a degenerative disorder that affects the joint tissues in the wrists, hands,and feet. It can cause severe inflammation around the joint tissues or the internal organs, resulting to the deformation of joints and the erosion of the bones. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the immune system does not recognize the body’s tissues and attacks them.

CALF PAIN

There are many injuries that can cause calf pain, cramping, swelling and deformities. Chronic calf pain requires medical intervention. Regenerative medicine treatments can help alleviate chronic pain without the need of surgery.
