Joint Pain Q & A

What causes joint pain?

Joint pain can be a symptom of a number of different diseases and medical conditions, the most common of which are:

  • Accidents
  • Bursitis
  • Gout
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sprains
  • Strains

It’s essential to find out why you have joint pain so you can receive the most effective treatment program for your condition.

How is joint pain diagnosed?

In order to determine why you’re experiencing joint pain, your doctor at New Jersey Regenerative Institute goes over your medical history with you and discusses your current symptoms. Your doctor then examines you, checking for the typical signs of a medical condition that could be causing the pain.

After your examination, your doctor may order diagnostic tests such as blood tests, X-rays, and ultrasound scans to confirm or rule out a particular diagnosis. Your doctor goes over the results of any tests with you when they’re back from the lab, and together you create an individualized treatment plan.

What treatments are available for joint pain?

The treatment you receive depends on what’s causing your joint pain and which joints it’s affecting. In some cases, rest and physiotherapy are all you need, but if you’re in a lot of pain or your condition isn’t improving, the medical team at New Jersey Regenerative Institute offers a selection of cutting-edge treatment options for joint pain.

Prolotherapy and Prolozone®

These therapies use natural stimulants that activate your body’s automatic healing processes, so new tissue grows to repair and replace the damaged areas.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC)

These therapies use platelets (PRP) and stem cells (BMAC) harvested from your tissues to support and accelerate the natural healing process.

Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein (IRAP)

This form of therapy inhibits production of Interleukin-1, which is produced by the body in response to an injury that’s causing inflammation. Research shows that Interleukin-1 contributes to chronic inflammation and deterioration of joints in many cases, so blocking its production breaks the cycle and helps reduce inflammation.

Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M)

A2M is a naturally occurring protein that blocks the action of the proteins that cause arthritis. Injecting super concentrated A2M into a joint affected by osteoarthritis halts the progression of the disease and promotes new, healthy tissue growth.

Lipogems®

Fat extracted from the patient is injected into the damaged joint to protect it and provide support during the healing process.
