Regenerative Medicine Therapy for Wrist and Hand Pain
There are many injuries and conditions that can affect the function of the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments within the hand and wrist. Arthritis, tendonitis, tenosynovitis and injuries to the soft tissues can result in pain and dysfunction. Regenerative medicine therapy for wrist and hand pain can be a safe and effective interventional pain treatment option. DOCS Health offers advanced regenerative medicine injections for hand pain at our facility in Los Angeles, CA.
Regenerative medicine therapy utilizes biological agents that can help repair damaged tissues in the body. When concentrated and reintroduced to damaged tissue, biological elements like platelet-rich plasma or stem cells can be effective at stimulating healing. Our medical center has cutting-edge technology available to perform regenerative medicine therapy for certain hand and wrist conditions at our facility in Beverly Hills.
PRP Injections for Hand Pain
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, injections can be helpful in relieving some hand pain conditions. PRP is derived from the patient’s blood – a small sample is filtered through a centrifuge to create a concentrate high in platelets and growth factors. Once the PRP is filtered and purified, it can be injected into the hand or wrist. This can be useful for painful arthritic joints and injuries to the hand to stimulate healing and repair.
Stem Cell Injections for Wrist Pain
Stem cells can be utilized to regenerate tissue, whether it is muscle, skin, ligaments or even cartilage. For some patients with hand or wrist pain from arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, stem cell injections may offer relief. Our pain specialists can harvest stem cells from the patient’s own body to concentrate and inject near hand joints or damaged tissues in the wrist to stimulate healing.
Regenerative medicine therapy can be a safe and effective interventional pain treatment. There is not the risk of side effects or rejection of the biological agents, as they are derived from the patient’s own body.
