Are you grappling with the difficult decision of either living in constant, aching pain or undergoing major surgery to replace a problematic joint? Maybe you’ve been going to your doctor for years, getting steroid injection after steroid injection, getting brief respites from pain, but are still noticing a steady decline, despite your best efforts. My friends, I’m here to tell you that there are other options available to you. It’s time to explore some nonsurgical, drug-free alternatives that are proven to effectively alleviate knee and hip discomfort caused by osteoarthritis. Don’t let bone-on-bone pain sideline you any longer; let us show you what we can do!

Introducing Regenerative Medicine

We use two different groundbreaking regenerative medicine techniques that are capable of saving your joints. The first is called Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, which uses injections from your own blood to speed up or kick start the healing process in your damaged joints, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Your body holds the key to address its own musculoskeletal issues…pretty incredible, right?! We create our PRP injections with the platelets from your blood and then inject them directly into the affected area, where the activated platelets release growth factors that prompt the production of reparative cells. Another exciting feature of this therapy is that it is virtually risk-free. There are very few side effects, since the medicine is derived from your own body, and getting PRP injections would not interrupt any other medications or regiments you may be on. Research has shown that PRP injections can significantly improve the erosion of cartilage in osteoarthritic joints. Our many patients who are living pain-free would agree!

We also use a treatment called Orthobiologic Therapy, which uses human cellular tissue products from Wharton’s Jelly to stimulate healing and relieve pain. Wharton’s Jelly, or human umbilical cord product, is rich in cytokines, growth factors, and scaffolding proteins. It is used to replace missing or damaged connective tissues, like the ones that have eroded in your problematic joints. Orthobiologic Therapies contain high concentrations of hyaluronic acid and growth factors.

Functional Medicine

At Integrative Physical Health, we believe in treating the whole body, not just the symptoms. We understand that illness does not arise from nothing and our commitment is to find the root cause before treating your ailments,which is why we create a custom diagnostic plan tailored specifically to your needs. Our treatment recommendations may be different from what you’re used to, but we assure you they will work for you. Our focus is on getting your body back to normal functioning and encouraging an all-around healthy lifestyle, not on replacing your joints and wishing you luck. Along with your full health history, we also consider lifestyle choices, nutrition, and physical activity. Our Knee Renewal Program is an excellent example of our functional medicine approach in action – emphasizing whole health by treating your body as a whole picture. Come and see how we can assist in restoring your joint health and getting you moving again!

Chiropractic Care

Did you know that chiropractic care is a highly effective treatment option for knee and hip pain? It’s true! Numerous studies have shown that regular adjustments can provide better pain management than traditional pain medications. By addressing the root cause of the problem, which is often misaligned or uneven hips and pelvis, chiropractic care can relieve pain and help you move more freely. Misaligned hips can pull at every other part of the body, causing unnecessary wear and tear on knee joints and hips, resulting in intense pain. Beyond your problematic joints, improving the neuromusculoskeletal system’s ability to perform will improve the functioning of other systems throughout your body, which is our ultimate goal here at Integrative Physical Health. We’d love to help you find relief with our professional and caring chiropractic services.

Medical IV Nutritional Therapy

You may be wondering, ‘what do vitamins have to do with my problematic joints? How is this going to help me?’ The truth is that most of us are lacking the proper vitamins in our bodies. Our diets are just not giving us everything we need to live at our optimal health. These deficiencies slow our healing, keep us open to infection, and put our nerves at risk. Our IV infusions deliver 100% of each vitamin directly into your bloodstream, urging our bodies along to better health, faster self-repair, and more energy. Rather than spending time and effort choosing vitamin capsules that may not be right for you, we can give you a combination of vitamins specific to your body, delivered right where they’re needed.

At our clinic, we’re dedicated to restoring your body’s natural rhythm to get you moving again pain-free. We utilize an integrative approach using conservative medical procedures and chiropractic care. By combining regenerative medicine, various functional medicine techniques, and IV infusion therapies, we can strengthen your joints and alleviate your pain. Because we know how difficult it can be to live with persistent joint pain, we’ll go above and beyond to support you with tailored solutions that cater to your unique needs. Don’t lose hope! You can regain full mobility and recovery with our help. Get in touch with us today to discuss the options available to you.
