What Does Tendinopathy Feel Like?

Sufferers of tendinopathy experience stiffness, pain, and weakness in the affected area. Whenever they move the tendons, the discomfort and stiffness will worsen, especially during the mornings. Regenexx-SD is a bone marrow concentrate that helps repair cells and can lead to the reduction of the discomfort caused by tendinopathy.

Dr. Christie Lehman is a board-certified doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation who specializes in nonsurgical knee treatments at Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Asheville, NC. If you suffer from painful tendinopathy, you might want to discuss Regenexx-SD with Dr. Lehman.

Natural aging causes a decline in repair cells within the body. The body cannot effectively disperse enough repair cells to the site of the injury to assist in repair. However, Regenexx-SD uses your own bone marrow harvested from your hip to concentrate a greater population of repair cells via bone marrow and other cells. The solution is then injected into the afflicted area via imaging guidance. The goal of the Regenexx-SD procedure is to encourage healing in the area, improve function and ease pain using the body’s own ability to heal with repair cells.

Dr. Lehman will evaluate your situation to determine if the patented bone marrow concentrate protocol is an effective option for your orthopedic condition. She might suggest that you undergo imaging to see if the situation will help.
