A Simple Approach to Avoid Opioids and Surgery

If you live with chronic pain from arthritis, or a past injury, you understand the limitations and restrictions that are placed on your life because of it. With advances in modern medicine, there are now better and more comprehensive options available for comprehensive treatment of the root cause of this pain. Dr. Tait saw the promising effects of what stem cells and other regenerative treatments could offer patients to promote healing and repair, and changed his practice model more than 5 years ago to focus exclusively on these treatments. Dr. Tait was one of the first physicians in Arizona to perform in-office stem cell treatments for non-surgical treatment of Orthopedic conditions. Rejuv Medical Southwest is the only dedicated Regenerative Medicine practice in Tucson offering the most advanced Regenerative treatments.

 

Regenerative Medicine is a revolutionary and rapidly evolving sub-specialty of Non-Surgical Orthopedic Medicine.

Rather than cutting out and replacing damaged joints with artificial joints, we use procedures that deploy your body’s natural healing cells (including stem cells and platelets) to:

  • Halt chronic pain and inflammation
  • Heal non-healing injuries
  • Slow down or reverse the pain and limited function associated with arthritis
  • Rebuild and regenerate injured tissues

Regenerative Medicine treatments allow you to lessen pain and regain mobility quickly and effectively without invasive surgery. Successful treatments often eliminate the need for chronic NSAIDs, opioids, and other potentially addictive pharmaceuticals that only “treat” the symptoms of the problem.

Even if you think you have exhausted all your options, tried physical therapy, or other injections therapies, such as cortisone, but have not seen the results, Regenerative Medicine treatments at Rejuv Medical may be exactly the right treatment for you!

If you have been told you need surgery, it is not too late. There is a good possibility that you could avoid such surgical procedures with a more comprehensive approach to your pain.

Regenerative Medicine Consumer Pro Tip…

Though these procedures cannot guarantee results for all, the amount of research backing the effectiveness of these treatments continues to expand. Only to confirm what many leading experts have seen in their practices over the past decade when practicing regenerative treatments.
This is the future of Non-Surgical Orthopedic Medicine.

What if you could drop the pain, but keep your knee or hip?

Our unique process focuses first on what many Regenerative Medicine clinics do not – the preparatory work to get your body back into a healing regenerative state. Once your body has been primed to heal, Regenerative treatments can be the powerful nudge needed to treat the root cause of pain and inflammation while restoring health to your joints.

Regenerative treatments have been shown to be effective treatments options for patients who:

  • are restricted from performing common tasks due to stiff joints and pain
  • suffer from chronic pain on a daily basis
  • are trying to return to a sport quickly following an acute injury
  • have recent or past acute injuries and are looking to speed up recovery
  • have failed to get results from other treatment options offered
  • are exploring other options than surgery
  • want to move better and feel better

Regenerative treatments target the components of a joint, such as cartilage, ligaments and tendons that are damaged or otherwise weakened injury or aging, promoting healing and repair.  This stimulation of your body’s healing mechanism helps to restore strength and integrity to the damaged area.

This is much different than treating the symptoms of the underlying problem, or inflammation, with various medications.

Are Your Joints Aging Faster Than You?

Regenerative Lifestyle

To have maximum results with treatment you must live a “Regenerative lifestyle” with a personal focus on nutrition, stress management, movement and exercise, and continued optimization of your body’s systems through Functional Medicine.

Inflammation (and inability to heal) can be triggered and/or maintained by many contributing factors including:

  • Sub-optimal diet
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Food/environmental allergies or sensitivities
  • Gut/microbiome dysfunction or infections
  • Persistent stressful environment
  • Improper movement patterns
  • Imbalance of hormones

If the underlying causes are explored and effectively treated first, then the success rate with treatment increases dramatically. In some cases, Regenerative treatments may not even be needed once the inflammation is controlled by correcting/optimizing nutrition and other lifestyle tweaks.

Regenerative Candidates

Not everyone is a candidate for Regenerative Medicine. As mentioned above, the success of Regenerative treatments in our opinion will be determined by the patient.  Those who put some consistent effort into health habits to restore their health will often see amazing results with these treatments. Those who put little effort into living a healthier lifestyle unfortunately see little effect, or little lasting effect, with these treatments – almost guaranteeing a joint or spine surgery in their future.

At Rejuv Medical we believe that you can and should heal with the proper treatment.

With more and more practices jumping on the Regenerative Medicine band-wagon each day, we see that most of these clinics fail to investigate the potential reasons why your body cannot heal, or why it remains inflamed.

Functional Medicine is a comprehensive deep dive on exploring the inner-working systems of your body to optimize health, not simply mask the symptoms of a disease process. It is the foundation upon which we build your treatment program – focusing on recreating and restoring health rather than managing disease or symptoms of the disease.

Regenerative Treatments Available at Rejuv Medical Southwest

Every patient is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to our treatments. You are unique and no two shoulders or knees are identical in their presentation. Each case is investigated at depth to determine the right treatment plan for you.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is the most powerful non-surgical treatment available to repair and regenerate tissue. We harvest your body’s own stem cells from your bone marrow during an in-office same-day procedure, and then re-inject the cells into the region of damage. These cells have the unique ability to differentiate, meaning that they can convert into new healthy cells to replace the damaged tissue.

They also have a dual action to shut down pain and inflammation by releasing various growth factors that neutralize the inflammatory environment in or around the region being treated.  This is why some patients experience noticeable improvement in pain and other symptoms during the first couple of weeks following treatment.

Other physicians may be using stem cells harvested from adipose (fat) tissue, but the results have not been as effective as bone marrow stem unless they are activated with additional growth factors.

Regenerative Stem Cell Success Stories

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments

Platelets are regenerative “orchestrator cells” containing a rich supply of PRP growth factors that sequence healing by recruiting the appropriate cells (including stem cells) into the area of damage.

The high concentration of platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. Similar, but not quite as powerful as stem cells, PRP can release bioactive proteins and growth factors that can initiate healing of various type of tissue including bone, tendon and ligament. They can promote development of new blood vessels and also stimulate wound healing by promoting new collagen formation.  

Platelets are taken from you through a simple blood draw from your arm, similarly to what you have experienced when having blood drawn for labs at your annual visit.

Regenerative Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Success Stories

Common Treatments

Furthermore, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are used for the repair of chronic degenerative joints, ligaments and tendon injuries. This new technology is changing the way doctors and sports physicians treat injury, pain and aging.  Conditions treated include: chronic overuse injuries to the ankles, knee and shoulders; arthritic joints; chronic back and spine arthritis and pain; degenerative disc disease. More specific injuries include; tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee ligament tears, shin splints, partial thickness rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and IT band syndrome can be effectively treated with PRP. PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy, or ligament reconstructive therapy, has been around since the 1950s. It is a safe, non-surgical treatment for chronic pain, injury and arthritis.

Rather than using cells from your body, this procedure involves injecting a solution of medications (usually an anesthetic and a dextrose, or sugar-based solution) into the damaged joint, ligament or tendon.  This stimulates some local inflammation, or a micro-injury, that wakes up your immune (healing) system. By inducing a small injury with the needle and injecting the irritant substance, this sounds the alarm and is interpreted by your body as a new injury. The body then floods the area with platelets and other natural growth factors to stimulate the healing cascade of events that would normally occur with an injury.

  • review rating 5  I am delighted to be asked to provide a testimonial for Dr. Jonathan Tait at Rejuv Medical Southwest. For the past few years I was struggling with deteriorating cartilage in both knees and because of that, my back. I went back to my orthopedic surgeon who after listening to my concerns about anesthetics and having observed that many friends had continuing problems with knee surgery he gave me Dr. Tait's name. I telephoned the next day and within a week went in for a consultation and two weeks after that had stem cell therapy followed by physical therapy. Eight months later I am even better that my old self and continuing to improve every day. Thank you Dr. Tait !

    review rating 5  Pain, chronic or acute, can be overwhelmingly debilitating and the road to recovery is not easy. As a member of a surgical team, I am blessed to have a medical background, but also little time to devote to rehabilitating an injury as it rightfully should be done. I was fortunate to have found Dr. Tait many years ago and continue to rely on his experience, knowledge, and willingness to work with me on understanding my condition and how best to approach it for realistic results. After five months of PT/Dry Needling/Massage and two rounds of PRP, I am able to competently perform my job without the distraction of pain and have gone back to a few of my favorite activities. In addition, I have begun to see a new PT, whom Dr. Tait reached out to on my behalf (albeit many states away). There are no better words that can be said, with the exception of thank you, for the effort and care Dr. Tait and his team show each individual on their path to recovery. You are much appreciated!

  • review rating 5  I was told about Dr. Tait by a friend who had great success from her experience. I went to see Dr. Tait because I was having a lot of pain in both of my shoulders. After having test done Dr. Tait diagnosed the problem as torn rotator cuff muscle in both shoulders and a torn bicep muscle in my left shoulder. We decided on the procedure of PRP. The results are wonderful. I would recommend this Dr. to anyone who is tired of the traditional (now much outdated) method for fixing this injury. Thanks to Dr. Tait & his staff Jeri

    review rating 5  I was referred to Dr. Tait by my physical therapist who I was seeing for a diagnosis of piraformis syndrome that just did not want to heal. I was having pain in the lower back and upper rear of my left leg. I was impressed with the personal attention I was given by Dr. Tait -- his willingness to listen and explain without seeming to be rushed. Moreover, I was impressed with his methodical, research approach. That is, rather than rush to conclusion and start with the more "glitzy" intervention, he started with the least intrusive and took things step by step. The office is warm and inviting and the office staff is superb, always friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Tait.

    review rating 5  After suffering from daily migraine headaches for two years and bouncing from one neurologist to another, I finally agreed to oblation of the neck nerves. This helped some, but I was still suffering with too many headaches (waking up with them each a.m.) The last neurologist I went to (Dr. Carol Hendricks) referred me to Dr. Tait to consider PRP. I was skeptical and it took me awhile to make a phone call just to check the possibility of a consultation. Janet (front office) answered the phone and was so kind and answered all my questions with such concern, I really wanted to make an appointment after talking with her. Best decision I ever made. I have had 3 PRP procedures and it has changed so much for me. No longer waking up every a.m. with a headache, wondering if I would be able to function through the day or spend it in terrible pain and nausea, taking whatever drugs I could think of to help me get through the day......That has all changed. It is so wonderful to not have those headaches and pain! I do have an occasional headache, but nothing that can't be handled with a couple of Tylenol......Big change from all the big gun drugs I was having to take just to function. Dr. Jon Tait is the best and he has the best office staff ever. Immediate attention is paid to my every concern and I tend to be a very anxious person! I highly recommend anyone suffering from unresolved pain in any part of your body to at least consider this procedure. I am thrilled with the results! Sandra Joy Van Hall
