regenerative therapy is it right for you

Is Regenerative Therapy Right for You?

Regenerative Therapy is one of the newest, most versatile, safe, and highly effective non-invasive medical treatments available today.

 

Regenerative Therapy uses your own body’s healing capacity to transform damaged cells into new, healthy cells. These new cells then replicate, creating additional new, healthy cells; these cells can become a range of cell types, including but not limited to bone cells, cartilage cells, and muscle cells.

Stem Cells grow into healthy versions of unhealthy or damaged cells, resulting in faster healing and providing alternatives to costly, painful, and invasive surgeries. 

There’s no doubt Regenerative Therapy has been a tremendous benefit for countless patients who want to be free of pain and get back to an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

We’re sure you are wondering about Regenerative Therapy and if it will work for you.

The biggest question we encounter is, am I a good candidate for this remarkable new non-invasive treatment option?

The questions below will help you determine whether or not you should pursue Regenerative Therapy.

 

♦ Do you suffer from chronic joint pain due to osteoarthritis or an acute joint injury?

Xcell Medical Group Elyria knee pain surgery or stem cellsRegenerative Therapy has proven most successful in the treatment of chronic joint pain associated with osteoarthritis in areas such as knees, hips, elbows, ankles, and wrists.

How successful? While clinical tests routinely delivered an 85% success rate, our offices have around a 98% success rate with our patients experiencing life-changing benefits thanks to Regenerative Therapy.

 

♦ Would you rather have a less invasive, drug-free, long-term treatment for your chronic pain?

Regenerative Therapy is, for many patients, the best alternative to highly-invasive, painful, and potentially ineffective joint replacement surgery.

With Regenerative Therapy, patients typically begin feeling relief a few weeks after the initial procedure — some of our patients have told us it’s almost overnight — and this relief often continues for years, resulting in decreased pain and increased mobility WITHOUT SURGERY or the need for addictive prescription meds for pain!

 

♦ Do you want to avoid surgery if possible?

Regenerative Therapy heals the disease or damage causing the pain, because of this, Regenerative Therapy is an effective alternative to many traditional joint repair surgeries like a knee replacement. Plus, there is no downtime!

Patients who receive these injections often delay the need for surgery for many years, sometimes even longer. Because stem cells heal the treated areas, many patients find they no longer need surgery at all.

 

♦ Are you interested in a non-invasive treatment that can be performed in-office with no negative side-effects and a high success rate?

The procedure itself takes about 15 minutes in our office to perform and once again, most of our patients have reported an almost overnight relief of their pain, with an almost 98% success rate with our patients.

Common Vehicle Accident Injuries

What are the Most Common Vehicle Accident Injuries?

 

A look at soft tissue injuries and other common kinds of vehicle accident injuries suffered by drivers and passengers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than three million people are injured each year in vehicle accidents across the country. The different injuries resulting from a car accident can be as varied as the individual circumstances of each collision, but there are some types of injuries that are more common than others.

Some vehicle accident injuries may resolve within a matter of days without any medical treatment at all. More serious injuries might become permanent and result in some level of physical disability.

The type and severity of injuries suffered by drivers and passengers involved in a car accident depend on factors that include:

  • Was the person wearing a seatbelt?
  • Did the person’s car get hit from the rear, side or front?
  • Was the occupant facing straight ahead in the seat? Or was the person’s head or body turned in a certain direction?
  • Was it a low-speed collision or a high-speed crash?
  • Did the car have airbags?

 

There are two broad categories of vehicle accident injuries: (1) impact injuries, and (2) penetrating injuries.

Impact injuries are typically caused when part of the person’s body hits some part of the interior of the car. Often this can be a knee hitting a dashboard or the head hitting the seat rest or the side window.

Penetrating injuries are typically cuts and scrapes. Shattering glass or loose objects flying inside the car on impact often cause these types of injuries.

 

Soft Tissue Injuries and Car Accidents

A soft tissue injury is damage to the body’s connective tissue, which means muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This is the most common type of injury resulting from a car accident. Soft tissue injuries can take many forms.

whiplash car accident injury

A “whiplash” type injury to the neck and upper back is a form of soft tissue injury. In that type of injury, the muscles and ligaments are stretched due to sudden movements imposed on the head and neck in the collision.

These same mechanisms and forces can cause soft tissue injuries in other areas of the body such as the back. Car accidents often cause mid-back and low-back muscle sprains and sometimes cause more serious back injuries because of the impact force against the spine.

 

Scrapes and Cuts

In a car collision, any loose objects inside the car immediately become projectiles thrown about the car’s interior. This includes cell phones, coffee mugs, eyeglasses, purses, books, dash-mounted GPS systems, etc.

cuts and scrapes car accident injuries

If any of these items hit your body, they can easily cut your skin or cause other injuries.

Sometimes these scrapes and cuts are relatively minor and require no medical treatment. More serious injuries can result in loss of blood and may require stitches.

Cuts or scrapes can also result if your airbag deploys in the collision.

 

Head Injuries and Car Accidents

Head injuries can take a number of forms, some relatively minor and others quite severe.

head injuries car accidentA car’s unexpected stop or change in direction often causes the heads of the car occupants to experience sudden and unnatural movements. This can cause muscle strains in the neck and back (as discussed above). But the head itself can also be injured.

Impact with a side window or steering wheel can cause scrapes and bruising to the head, or even deeper lacerations. More severe collision impacts can cause a closed head injury. In that situation, the fluid and tissue inside the skull are damaged because of the sudden movement or impact of the head.

Less severe closed head injuries often result in concussions, while the most severe impacts can cause brain damage.

 

Chest Injuries

Chest injuries are also common vehicle accident injuries. These injuries typically take the form of contusions or bruises but can be more severe, such as broken ribs or internal injuries.

chest injuries car accidentDrivers often experience chest injuries because of their position behind the steering wheel, which allows very little freedom of movement before the chest collides with the steering wheel.

If a person’s body is thrown forward in a collision, even though it might not impact the steering wheel or dashboard, the chest area will still experience a high level of force against the shoulder harness or seatbelt, which can cause severe bruising.

 

Arm and Leg Injuries

The same forces that unexpectedly throw a person’s head about in car collisions act similarly on arms and legs.

arm and leg injuries car accidentIf your car suffers a side impact, your arms and legs might be thrown hard against the door. While positioned as a passenger in a car, your legs typically have very little room for movement. Car accidents often cause an occupant’s knees to hit the dashboard or seats in front of them.

Depending on the nature of the collision, injuries to your arms and legs might be mere bruises or scrapes, but sprains and even breaks can occur.

Keep in mind that some injuries are not readily apparent following a car accident. Depending on the nature of the injury, it may take days, weeks, or even months for symptoms to appear. So if you are in a car accident, it is best to seek medical treatment for even the slightest discomfort or early indication of injury.
