Non-Surgical Options for Foot and Ankle Arthritis

Chronic pain due to foot and ankle arthritis is common.  It can be debilitating and interfere with quality of life.  As a result it is not surprising that people are often willing to have surgery in hopes of getting some relief even if surgery would otherwise be a last resort.  There are many non-surgical options however that many are not aware of.   In additional to gait analysis studies to evaluate how normal walking may be worsening the condition and what can be done mechanically to treat it regenerative medicine techniques such as prolotherapy, PRP, and stem cell can help to restore normal tissue function and relatively simple in office orthopedic procedures such as ultrasound guided tenotomies (tendon repairs) and fasciotomies (for conditions like plantar fascitis) are now available.   What is better still is that in the majority of cases they work and are available right here in Greenville, SC at Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections Provide Relief

At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, South Carolina we offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions where a regenerative approach makes sense.   PRP consists of your own blood wound healing products and growth factors.  After a simple blood draw a centrifuge is used and configured to run in such a fashion so as to both separate and concentrate your body’s ability to repair what is injured.  The result, PRP, is then injected back into your body at the injury site.  Results have proven to be quite favorable for conditions ranging from osteoarthritis, joint space narrowing, muscle, tendon and ligament injures such as rotator cuff tears, tennis or golfer’s elbow, and plantar fascitis.

Tissue Engineering for Relief and Prevention for Osteoarthritis

There are many options for tissue engineering for relief and prevention for osteoarthritis.  At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA in Greenville, South Carolina we offer both autologous (from your own body) and placental derived treatment options.   In the autologous category choices include bone marrow and mesenchymal (fat) derived.  While these two options require minor surgery placental derived does not.   The results can be quicker with autologous stem compared to placental stem cells but often that is not the case and placental derived is much easier to do as no surgery is required.    While maximum outcomes may take a bit longer to achieve it is often worth the wait as placental derived stem cells don’t require any surgery and can cost less too.   In addition stem cells represent only one regenerative medicine approach.  Learn more about other options such as PRP and prolotherapy  at piedmontpmr.com and discover that  stem cell relief and prevention for osteoarthritis is  available right here in Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, and surrounding areas.
