Researchers have conducted a large number of clinical studies regarding stem cells, exosomes, and PRP therapy to treat various conditions. ReviveMD Center has created a library of conditions so patients can learn more about the issues they are facing. If you have one of these conditions, contact ReviveMD Center to see if regenerative medicine is the right choice for you.
The Achilles tendon connects the heel to the muscle at the back of the leg. When the tendon swells and becomes painful, Achilles tendonitis is diagnosed.
Since the Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle and heel bone, it is needed to jump, run, and even walk. If the tendon stretches too far, it will tear and must be repaired to function again.
Ankle and Foot Arthritis
Pain, swelling, and stiffness in or near the foot and ankle joints are signs of ankle and foot arthritis. People can have chronic or acute ankle and foot arthritis.
Ankle ligaments connect the bones and provide joint stability. A sprain occurs when the ligament is stretched beyond its capacity or if it tears. This is a common injury, with more than 23,000 suffering ankle sprains each day in America.
Age-related diseases are expected to increase in the coming years, creating a burden for the healthcare industry. Healthcare costs are expected to increase as the population ages, creating a need for anti-aging medicine options.
Arthritis creates joint stiffness, swelling, and pain. The condition causes the joints to degenerate, reducing mobility and flexibility. Depending on the type of arthritis, people can also experience organ damage. The most common organ damage occurs to the skin and the eyes.
Arthritis in Extremities and Spine
The joints connect bones in the body and allow flexibility and mobility. Arthritis in the extremities and the spine can cause swelling, pain, and stiffness in and around the joints.
More young and mid-aged women die of autoimmune diseases than any other condition in America. Rheumatoid arthritis and Graves’ disease are two of the most common autoimmune diseases in the country.
Many Americans experience back pain. It ranges from a muscle ache to shooting pain and can reduce flexibility and mobility. Back pain can make standing and sitting difficult, as well.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve is compressed. Common symptoms include wrist and palm numbness or weakness and radiating pain through the arm.
Cushioning tissue, or cartilage, sits between the bones and lubricates the joints. It also supports flexibility and joint stability. Cartilage defects can be painful and reduce mobility.
Degenerative Disc Disease
The vertebral column contains discs that serve as cushions. The discs absorb the mechanical stresses caused by movements. When the discs degenerate, they cannot function as shock absorbers, leading to a great deal of pain.
Elbow Tendonitis/Tennis elbow/golfers elbow
Often referred to as tennis or golfer’s elbow, elbow tendonitis occurs when the elbow tendons are damaged. This is normally due to repetitive gripping motions that occur when people play golf or tennis. However, people who aren’t golfers or tennis players can also develop elbow tendonitis.
Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
Spinal surgery has a high success rate. Still, many people suffer from pain after surgery. This is referred to as failed back surgery syndrome.
Broken bones, or fractures, can be caused by a variety of things, including bone disorders, injuries, and overuse. Symptoms include swelling, intense pain, bleeding, and loss of mobility. People also might notice misshapen limbs.
Hand and Wrist Arthritis
Arthritis can affect all joints in the body, including the hands and wrists. The medical community classifies arthritis into several types, including rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.
Hip arthritis is defined as degeneration or inflammation of the hip joints. Arthritis in the hips can be painful and reduce mobility. The condition can harm the patient’s quality of life and impact them profoundly.
Patients with knee arthritis have inflammation in the knee joint. This can cause pain and stiffness, making it difficult to walk.
Knee Ligament Injuries
As the body’s largest joint, the knee is critical for movement. Injuring the ligaments impedes flexibility and movement, and it can make walking close to impossible.
Repeated stress to the knee, such as stress from playing sports, can cause the knee tendon to tear and weaken. This can cause knee tendonitis, which presents with pain and inflammation.
Migraine headaches normally present with a severe pulsating or throbbing pain on one side of the head. Other symptoms include nausea, sensitivity to stimuli, and visual problems. These headaches can last for hours or days.
Neck pain has a variety of causes, including injuries to the muscles, bones, nerves, or intervertebral discs.
Neuropathy — Peripheral and Diabetic
Neuropathy refers to a disease that affects nerves in the body. People can suffer from peripheral or diabetic neuropathy.
Pelvic pain manifests at the bottom of the abdomen and in the pelvis. Symptoms include sharp or dull radiating pain.
Phantom Limb Pain
People can experience phantom limb pain after an amputation. The body experiences pain as if the limb were still attached even though it has been amputated.
The plantar fascia connects the toe to the heel bone. This connective tissue runs across the bottom of the foot. When it becomes inflamed, the patient is diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. This condition is quite painful and can reduce mobility.
Postherpetic neuralgia can develop after shingles. The condition causes peripheral nerve pain.
The immune system protects the body from outside invaders, including toxins, viruses, and bacteria. Autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, cause the body to attack healthy cells as well as dangerous foreign agents.
Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
Impingement syndrome, or rotator cuff tendonitis, occurs when the shoulder’s tendons and muscles become inflamed. This causes a great deal of pain and a loss of flexibility. Shoulder weakness is also possible.
Rotator Cuff Tears
A rotator cuff tear occurs when the tendon frays and tears from the bone. The injury is often progressive, meaning it normally doesn’t completely tear at first. Instead, the tear gets worse as more damage is done. Eventually, if left untreated, the tendon completely tears away from the bone.
Sacroiliac Joint Pain
The iliac and sacrum bones meet at the sacroiliac joint. The joint is located at the base of the spine and can cause pain.
The sciatic nerve starts at the lower back and runs through the hips, buttocks, and legs. Sciatica is diagnosed when people feel pain along the nerve’s pathway. The pain is normally isolated to one side of the body, although it is possible to develop sciatica on both sides.
Shoulder and Elbow Arthritis
The elbow is a hinged joint that consists of three bones. Strong ligaments hold the bones together. Regular wear and tear or injuries can cause elbow arthritis.
Spinal Arthritis (Facet Syndrome)
Spinal arthritis, commonly referred to as facet syndrome, is diagnosed when the facet joints become inflamed. The joints link the vertebrae together and help with balance, posture, and movement. This condition makes balancing, moving, and standing up straight more difficult.
When the spinal space narrows, it puts pressure on the nerve roots and spinal cord. This is called spinal stenosis and can lead to weakness, numbness, tingling, and pain.
Tendons are the connective tissues that attach bones and muscles. These fibrous tissues support movement. When the tissues become inflamed, the patient is diagnosed with tendonitis.
Tendonitis and Tears
Tendonitis and tears are diagnosed when microtears cause acute inflammation. Swelling, warmth, and pain are symptoms of tendonitis and tears. People typically experience mobility issuesand less flexibility, as well.
