Is joint pain inhibiting your daily routine?
Do you find yourself missing out on some, or many of life’s pleasures because your joint pain is slowing you down?
Is it becoming harder and harder to take a walk, negotiate a flight of stairs or even open a jar?
Have you experienced an injury that caused your joint pain or is your pain from arthritis or another chronic problem?
Are you taking medication, knowing that it only masks the symptoms, all the while knowing it doesn’t provide a solution to the actual cause of your pain.
At Physical Medicine of Oklahoma, we’ve helped countless patients get relief and return to the daily routine that they love and miss so much. Playing sports, working out, playing with the kids or grandkids, or simply walking up a flight of stairs without the discomfort of joint pain.
Joint Pain Relief
We offer several joint pain treatment options. If your pain emanates from a recent injury without muscle or ligament damage, perhaps your body is misaligned, and chiropractic adjustments are just what you need to find the pain relief that you seek.
If your joint pain symptoms are from a more serious issue, like arthritis or a damaged ligament or muscle, perhaps regenerative medicine is a more appropriate treatment option.
Regenerative medicine helps your body heal itself and offer(s) protection to injured or traumatized tissue. These injections regulate and maintain the regenerative process and promote the healing of the injured tissue. Your damaged tissue heals with the help of stem cells, growth factors, collagen substrates, amino acids, polyamides, lipids, carbohydrates, cytokines, hyaluronic acids, and fibronectin. As you can clearly see, these injections contain far more regenerative components than simply stem cells.

This process is typically administered during one office visit and is minimally invasive. There is no harvesting of your tissue or blood. This injection is derived from Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) found in the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord of fetuses delivered through cesarean section. No mothers or babies experience any discomfort or side effects because of this process.
MSCs are undifferentiated cells, meaning that they have not yet developed into a particular cell variant. As undifferentiated cells, upon deployment to the affected area, these cells have the ability to develop into the exact cell structure needed to help your body repair the damaged or injured tissue.
