What We Treat

The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the body. Unfortunately, this complexity can predispose patients to a variety of conditions.

Rotator cuff tendinitis, Subacromial impingement, “SLAP’ lesions, and degenerative changes can all occur in the shoulder.

Regenerative injections such as PRP or stem cells, can be employed to often times non-surgically cure your condition. Call 253-944-1813 to schedule a consultation and see if this is right for you.

BACK PAIN FACET DISEASE

Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors. One is facet disease, or degeneration of the joints of the low back. These joints allow the spine to rotate, flex, and extend. These joints are at risk of early degeneration due to a combination of extensive mobility and heavy loading with excessive activity and body weight.

Facet disease is one of the most common causes of back pain. Patients will experience pain in the middle of the back that often radiates down the buttocks and into the back of the thighs.

Regenerative injection therapy of stem cells or PRP into the facet joints can function to help restore any irritation and or inflammation of these joints.

BACK PAIN SCIATICA

Radiculopathy is a term describing an irritated or pinched nerve as it exits the spine. This opening is called the neural foramen. The nerve can be compressed by a bulging disc, an enlarged facet joint, or settling from degenerative disc disease. Bone spurs can also form, all of which can put pressure on the nerve.

Patients will complain of back pain and spasm, as well as pain that radiates through the lower buttock down the leg into the foot. This pain is described as burning and numb. Severe cases will cause weakness in the leg or foot as well.

BACK PAIN DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE

Discs in the spine serve as both shock absorbers and spacers that lie between the bones of the spine. They have a fibrous outer ring called the annulus and a jelly middle called the nucleolus pulposis. The outer ring is constructed like a tire with alternating crisscrossing fibers. Over time these radials can snap, and the disc begins to bulge.

The outer portion of the disc has pain fibers while the inside does not. As the disc degenerates it starts to expose the outer pain fibers to the inner jelly middle, which is full of inflammatory mediators. Once that occurs, the disc itself can become painful and is now known as discogenic pain. This can be treated with epidural steroid injections, physical therapy, core strengthening, and back bracing. Surgery has been performed for discogenic pain but the results have been less than optimal.

Relieving pain without surgery is possible with regenerative medicine like Stem Cell Therapy for back pain or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedures.

Please schedule a consultation where we can discuss if any of these options are right for you.

Osteoarthritis (OA) also called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis, is the most common chronic condition of the joints. This joint disease results from the breakdown of connective tissues in joint cartilage and underlying bone. The most common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness, which may occur only following exercise, but over time can become constant. Other symptoms may include joint swelling and decreased range of motion. Usually the problems come on over years, and can affect work and normal daily activities.

Regenerative Medicine may be used to treat the injured or damaged connective tissue of the joint that is contributing to discomfort and decreasing your mobility. If you are suffering from osteoarthritis, you can try Genesis Regenerative Medicine for a painless alternative to drugs, steroids or surgery.

Genesis Regen Medicine has extensive experience with hip arthritis and offer many ways to treat this condition.
Our same-day outpatient procedures may help alleviate even the most severe hip and arthritis pain, depending on the cause. We treat many types of hip conditions and are dedicated to doing everything that we can to give you relief from pain.

Stem cell therapy is a regenerative medical treatment and is just one option for musculoskeletal problems that we may use to help alleviate painful hip conditions.

ACL, PCL, and Meniscus Tears are injuries of the connective tissue in the Knee. An ACL tear is the tearing of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which connects the upper leg bone (femur) and lower leg bone (shin). A PCL tear is a tear of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament, which is located within the knee joint where it stabilizes the articulating bones, particularly the femur and the tibia, during movement. A Meniscus tear is a tear of a ligament located in the front of the knee, which serves to “cushion” the joint.

These connective tissue injuries are often the result of traumatic blows to the knee such as in a car accident, falling hard on your knee, landing on it wrong, etc. These injuries often result in inflammation, discomfort and in some cases instability. Surgery is most often recommended—until now.

Regenerative medicine may be used to treat the damaged or poorly functioning connective tissue of the knee that is causing discomfort, inflammation, and decreased range of motion. If you are suffering from an ACL, PCL or Meniscal Tear, you can try Regenerative Medicine for an alternative to steroid injections and/or surgery.

CHONDROMALACIA “RUNNERS KNEE”

Chondromalacia patellae is inflammation or damage to the connective tissue of the cartilage at the back of the kneecap (patella). Patients often describe the discomfort to be “at the front of the knee”. Chondromalacia patellae may develop when the knee is overused or injured, making this is a common injury for runners.

Regenerative Medicine may be used to treat the injured or poorly functioning connective tissue of the patella that is causing pain and decreased mobility. If you are suffering from Chondromalacia, you can try Regenerative Medicine for a painless alternative to cortisone injections and/or surgery.

TENNIS ELBOW

Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse — repeating the same motions again and again. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.

GOLERS ELBOW

Golfer’s elbow is similar to tennis elbow, which occurs on the outside of the elbow. It’s not limited to golfers. Tennis players and others who repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers also can develop golfer’s elbow.
