Can Bone Marrow Concentrate Improve Mobility?

Featured Image

Bone marrow concentrate is used to treat a variety of orthopedic conditions without the use of medications. The goal is to improve function and mobility and relieve pain.

 

At Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Asheville, NC, board-certified doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation Dr. Christie Lehman performs Regenexx® cellular therapy treatments on patients suffering from hard to treat conditions. These include osteoarthritis, back pain, sports injuries, or chronic injuries caused by natural wear and tear.

 

Below, we’ll look at this procedure and discuss how it may improve your mobility.

 

What is bone marrow concentrate, and how can it help my osteoarthrosis or pain?

Whether due to injuries or aging, nearly all of us suffer from pain and mobility issues at some point in our lives. Muscle issues can often be the problem, and medicine has become somewhat adept at treating those. But it’s the damage to cartilage, tendons, and ligaments that can cause stubborn pain and a loss of mobility in the back, neck, shoulders, legs, and ankles, which doctors sometimes can’t treat. Often, physicians resort to painkillers that can lead to addiction issues or surgeries in which they don’t know exactly what they’re looking for.

 

Regenexx cellular therapy amplifies the body’s ability to help itself from these issues and injuries. It requires harvesting bone marrow from the back or the hip, where repair cells thrive. After this, Dr. Lehman and Dr. Crider use a procedure that isolates the cells that help repair tissues and injects them directly into the problematic area using advanced imaging technology. These cells work by assisting to repair your damaged tissues and reproduce to ensure a fresh flow of regenerating cells to the cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.

 

How does bone marrow concentrate affect mobility?

In the same way that the bone marrow concentrate helps heal the damaged or degenerated tissues to help relieve pain, it can also help restore function and mobility to the area. Regenexx procedures have helped patients who experience pain and immobility from many conditions, including:

  • Arthritis

  • Ligament tears

  • Tendon injuries

 

Not all procedures work for all patients, so it’s necessary to consult with an experienced physician, like Dr. Lehman and Dr. Crider, to see if Regenexx cellular therapy is right for you or if an alternative is more appropriate for your specific orthopedic condition.

 

What are the benefits of cellular therapy treatments?

Regenexx cellular therapy at Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine can not only reduce pain and improve mobility for a wide variety of ailments, but it also provides the following benefits to eligible patients:

  • Avoids surgery

  • It reduces or removes the need for medications
