People today are living longer and retaining an active lifestyle longer than at other points in time. However, one drawback of this extended active life span is that we are more likely to develop chronic and degenerative conditions, which are often painful as well as debilitating.
Orthobiologic Medicine uses the body’s own tissue or tissue material natural to the human body to help restore or establish normal function and improve pain.
OrthoSouth offers the following orthobiologic treatment options:
Your doctor will discuss which treatment option(s) may be right for you and your specific medical situation.
Orthobiologic medicine may be an option for individuals dealing with soft tissue injuries of the muscles, tendons or ligaments; degenerative conditions such as arthritis; disc degenerative problems; non-union fractures; and other chronic non-healing conditions.
Orthobiologic therapy tends to have fewer side effects when compared to steroid injections and surgery. The therapies are natural and organic – they utilize and enhance your body’s own inherent properties to promote and speed up the natural healing process. Additionally, the procedures are non-surgical and minimally invasive.
All treatments come with potential risks and side effects. Your doctor will discuss risks and side effects with you before any treatment.
