How it Works?

Regenerative Medicine for Wrist Pain

We treat wrist pain using advanced non-surgical pain management procedures in Charlotte and Fort Mill that involve regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine includes medical interventions that harness the body’s healing processes to facilitate quick recovery of wrist pain and wrist conditions. Some of these regenerative procedures include stem cell therapy and PRP therapy which are derived from the host’s cells.

Treatment with these procedures is more beneficial compared to traditional therapies because they harness the body’s self-healing properties by addressing the root of the pain rather than managing symptoms as seen with conventional medications. Hence, patients can benefit from long-term treatments that are safe and effective.

Regenerative Medicine - PRP Therapy for Waist Pain

PRP therapy is a regenerative procedure that uses an injection of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to amplify the body’s natural growth factors for your body to use for the healing of injured tissues. Once injected into the injured wrist, these growth factors and other natural healing cells are deployed to the site to begin the recovery process.

Since it’s a regenerative procedure, treatment with PRP therapy is fast, effective and a safer alternative for the healing of wrist pain. If you’re looking for a long-term pain relief alternative, PRP therapy may be your solution.

Stem Cell Therapy for Wrist Pain

Stem cell therapy is another innovative procedure in the field of regenerative medicine which uses specialized cells from the patient’s body to facilitate quick recovery of wrist pain. It doesn’t matter if you recently had an acute wrist injury or you have a long-term condition such as arthritis, stem cell therapy will relieve the discomfort in your wrist by harnessing your natural healing factors. Our patients can benefit from stem cell therapy for wrist pain in the following ways:

  • Stem cell therapy is an innovative regenerative procedure with the potential to generate pleasing therapeutic results. The procedure is safe, minimally invasive, and ethically responsible. Hence, you’re protected from the risks of highly invasive surgical procedures such as a wrist arthroplasty that can lead to complications such as bleeding and post-surgical infections.
  • Stem cell therapy is a more effective alternative to traditional medical approaches because it harnesses the host’s healing properties to provide recovery rather than manage symptoms. This makes treatment with stem cell therapy better for the long-term treatment of wrist pain.
  • Since the patient’s cells are used for the procedure, there are no risks of adverse and unexpected adverse effects and recovery is much faster than typical conventional therapies, so patients can quickly return to the things they love.

A peripheral nerve block is a specialized type of regional anesthesia for providing immediate relief to wrist pain and injuries that refuse to respond to conventional medications. The procedure uses an anesthetic which is injected into specialized nerve bundles around the wrist region that are involved in pain transmission. Compared to typical anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks are long-lasting, only minimally invasive and have fewer side effects compared to most typical pain management specialties. Success rates with this procedure are 96% so you’re guaranteed a faster and safer recovery.

Carpal Tunnel Injections in Charlotte and Fort Mill
Carpal Tunnel Injections

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway located at the anterior portion of the wrist. Within this tunnel are the median nerves and the flexor tendons. The nerve provides the sensation to these tendons which passes down to the thumb, index, and middle fingers. However, under extreme pressure on this nerve such as extreme wrist motions, vibration, overuse, and high force, it leads to a numbing, tingling, shock-like, and burning sensation called the carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel injections, which use a corticosteroid and anesthetic, require the intervention of a pain specialist to diagnose and treat the condition.

Median Nerve Hydrodissection in Charlotte and Fort Mill
Median Nerve Hydrodissection

A median nerve hydrodissection is an innovative procedure for treating carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrist. The procedure is a non-surgical, non-opioid pain management technique that uses saline and a numbing agent to treat pain and inflammation caused by compression of the median nerve of the wrist. This procedure is aimed at decompressing the nerves of the wrist in order to relieve pain and inflammation and eliminate the numbness and tingling sensations on the hands and wrists. The procedure typically takes between 30 to 45 minutes with immediate pain relief and few to no lasting side effects.
