Sprains and Strains Treatment
Getting You Back on Your Feet in No Time!
Sprain and strains can cause severe damage to your body. Although most of these injuries last only a couple of weeks, if you experience prolonged pain, you may need medical treatment. With surgery and medication as your only options, you may live with the pain, causing your life to suffer.
At Northeast Knee & Joint Institute, our revolutionary regenerative medicine procedures are a safer and healthier way to heal your sprain or strain. Through cellular therapies such as stem cells and platelet-rich plasma, you’ll be back on your feet before you even realize it!
Traditional Sprain and Strain Treatment
Both sprains and strains refer to damage you received to the soft tissues in your body. But what tissue is injured defines if it’s a sprain or a strain.
In the case of a sprain, a ligament – the tough fibrous tissue that connects your bones – has been overstretched, torn or twisted. A strain, however, deals with an overstretched or torn tendon or muscle. In both cases, the injury can happen suddenly or become a chronic condition.
Symptoms of these injuries include:
- Pain or tenderness
- Swelling around the injured area
- Muscle spasms or cramping
- Muscle weakness or unable to put weight on the joint
- Limited movement in the damaged area
Treatment for sprains and strains depends on the location and intensity of the pain. Usually, home remedies – rest, elevation, heat, and ice — are your best bet at a full recovery. However, in more severe and chronic cases, physical therapy, medication, and even surgery may be required to fix the issue.
How Regenerative Medicine Can Help
If a sprain or strain becomes chronic, it can severely affect your life. Daily discomfort can force you to sacrifice activities that you once loved to do. With surgery and addictive drugs as your only options, you may decide to live with the pain instead of suffering from such a harsh treatment plan.
But there is one treatment that is noninvasive and safer – regenerative medicine. Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma therapy can help stimulate your body’s cells and blood to repair and heal the damaged tissue.
Our stem cell solution comes from adult umbilical cord tissue. Once deployed in the body, the stem cells will head to the site of injury and release growth factors. These factors help control the inflammatory response, increase the blood flow to the area, and begin the healing process in the tissue.
PRP therapy uses the patient’s blood to help speed the healing process with minimal or no scarring and alleviate further degeneration of the tissue. With little to no risk, this procedure is 86 percent effective in helping heal your sprain or strain injury.
