Wrist and hand pain is disabling to the say the least. At Cross Bay PMR, we see patients regularly with wrist and hand arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Trigger Finger, Tendinitis, and DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis. We have discovered that prp injections and stem cell injections have high success rates as wrist and hand treatment, siginficantly increasing mobility and reducing pain.
Wrist and/or hand conditions can be too painful to bear and sometimes, doctors recommend surgery if the pain has not healed after several months. I am here to tell you that there are other non-surgical low-risk options. Even if you aren’t thinking about surgery and just want the pain to disappear, these treatments work.
What Is A Stem Cell Injection?
Stem Cell Therapy utilizes the power of the body’s stem cells. There are millions of stem cells in the body already. They are neutral cells without purpose until the body is damaged in some way, either through daily life or a more serious trauma. Stem cells then transform themselves into the type of tissue the body needs to repair itself. This is one of the many miracles of the body.
When you have significant wrist/hand pain that just won’t go away, there isn’t enough stem cells to create new healthy tissue that replaces and restores the old damaged tissue. One is left with the constant pain and immobility. This is where we come in!
A stem cell injection provides a boost of new stem cells that then go to “work” repairing damaged tissue. New stem cells are transformed into healthy working tissue for the wrist and hand to utilize during normal daily motions and by correcting the injury, it doesn’t get progressively worse and surgery isn’t needed.
What Is A PRP Injection?
A PRP injection has a similar effect but uses a different material. PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is a dense plasma richly filled with platelets that have over 30 growth factors to heal cuts, wounds, and damaged tissue. These platelets are found in our blood. They are same cells that heal the cuts and wounds when a person gets a scrape.
The PRP is injected into the injured wrist/hand and incredibly accelerates the recovery process.
Stem Cells And PRP Are Healthy Organic Substances
Both stem cells and prp are organic materials and pose virtually no risk to the body. The procedure takesabout 3 hours to complete, is done in-office, and there are no hospital visit or overnight stays.
Many of our patients see a improvement (significantly less pain) within two weeks, though for some it takes a little bit longer. If the problem is particularly severe, Dr. Bieber may recommend an additional injection.
Dr. Benjamin Bieber is renowned world-wide and a practicing Sports Medicine physician for over 30 years. After treating tens of thousands of patients, he is finding both stem cell and prp therapy to be the most effective non-surgical treatment to date.
