NMDiscussion: What Is Regenerative Injection Therapy?

 

Regenerative Injection Therapy is a class of injection therapies where we are encouraging the regeneration of the tissues around joints. In regard to the joint therapies, we inject into the structures surrounding each joint to encourage healing in the joints.

First and foremost, I always encourage that they see our chiropractors first. Do the A.R.T., do the F.R.S., do the corrective exercises and stretching. Of course another really key component is to improve their diet as well, because if a person is inflamed overall, then they are potentially going to have joint pain from that as well.

If all those conservative therapies have been exhausted and the patient is still experiencing joint pain, then we can start to consider regenerative injection therapy.
