Welcome to a Pain-Free Life
Arthritis refers to a wide range of joint diseases and conditions causing joint pain affecting more than 50 million adults in the U.S. These conditions can lead to pain, swelling, tenderness and stiffness in one or more joints, making it hard to carry out your daily activities. You may end up reducing your physical activity because it hurts to move like you used to, or maybe you can no longer do some of your favorite activities like tennis or even walking because of pain in your knees. However arthritis is affecting you, it doesn’t have to be that way.
With stem cell therapy for arthritis, we can help enhance the body’s natural regenerative process and repair tissue in damaged areas, particularly knees, hips, shoulders, and ankles. The procedure doesn’t require surgery, providing you with short recovery time and restoring your lifestyle to what it was before arthritis.
