What is Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) and is it right for me?

Muscle_and_joint_pain1

In a culture where everyone is trying their hardest to stay in shape and constantly be at the top of their physical peak, having to constantly deal with tedious and painful sport and exercise injuries is a setback no one wants to face. Working out should be a rewarding process with unlimited benefits, so why suffer through so much pain for working so hard?

Traditional methods of dealing with pain:

When individuals suffer from pain caused by sport or exercise injuries, most people’s immediate reaction is to hit their nearest drug store and subdue their pain with over the counter products such as Advil or Tylenol. Others may try getting massages regularly or perhaps purchase new workout equipment that alleviates stress on joints. Even though many of these remedies produce temporary results for pain relief, many people overlook the simplest and most effective way to get rid of the pain.

Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) also known as Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy, is a service that DreamBody offers that produces long lasting relief from recurring pain due to sports injuries. It is a method of treatment that has proven to be effective since 1995 and is one of the safest and quickest answers to your long term pain problems.

Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT)/ Prolotherapy

Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy is a treatment that can relieve you of pain through the use of its ground-breaking technology. This type of treatment goes by several different names, but they all refer to the same process. Some of these names include:

  • Adult Stem Cell Prolotherapy
  • Regenerative Injection Treatment
  • RIT

How this process works consists of the doctors at DreamBody extracting Mesenchymal Stem Cells from your body and relocating them to the inflamed or damaged muscular tissue that has been causing you pain. These brilliant little cells are instantly able to target the damaged cells in your tissues and ligaments and quickly repair them, restoring them virtually back to 100 percent.

Since life in Arizona involves so much outdoor activity, many Arizonans suffer from this type of pain from doing every day exercises. Some of the most common causes of constant and severe muscle and joint pains include:

  • Sport Injuries
  • Muscle or ligament tears
  • Hiking
  • Running
  • High impact exercises

Even though exercise is the primary cause of this type of pain, genetics as well as aging can cause an individual to seek RIT. Everyone’s cartilage and muscle tissues breakdown at different rates. Some people with certain genetics simply have tissue that does not stand the test of time in the same way that other people’s tissue might, therefore causing severe pain at early ages.

Aging also leads to the breakdown of cartilage and tissue, and might cause someone to seek Prolotherapy. The primary cause of elderly individuals seeking RIT include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pain after knee replacement
  • Pain after hip replacement

When elderly people undergo any of the medical issues listed above, it is inevitably followed by extreme pain that makes something as simple as walking a grueling undertaking. Many people who suffer from these painful issues may seek out chiropractic treatment, cortisone injections or Prolotherapy. However, if you have exhausted every possible option of ending this pain and nothing has given you relief, RIT will be able to end your discomfort permanently.

Due to the fact that so many of these causes are a part of our everyday life, there is no excuse for letting the pain stop you from enjoying the outdoors and keeping yourself healthy. By consulting the doctor’s at DreamBody, you will be one step closer to nipping this pain in the bud for good.

Why Choose Prolotherapy

Even though joint and muscle pain are common occurrences for many people, this pain may not always derive form the activities that are necessary for Prolotherapy treatments. Many people can alleviate their aches and pains by resorting to simple solutions such as stretching more often and switching to sturdier shoes that provide more support during physical activity.

Below are some of the questions you should ask yourself prior to deciding on RIT:

  • Do I have common and severe joint or muscle pain?
  • Is the pain keeping me from doing the things I love?
  • Did this pain derive from an injury?
  • Do I want to get rid of this pain quickly and permanently?

Your responses to these questions should help you navigate yourself to landing on the proper decision for you and your body. Even though Prolotherapy is a wonderful treatment for those who need it, a doctor would never recommend undergoing treatment for something that isn’t necessary.

How Prolotherapy Works

This non-invasive and quick treatment is something that we are proud to offer and receive constant positive feedback for. During the procedure, natural substances are injected directly into the damaged musculoskeletal tissues in order to trigger the production of growth factors. This launches a controlled inflammation that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanism to lay down new, strong collagen fibers and cells. Any joint or muscle can be treated with Prolotherapy and the process is the same regardless of what part of your body you want to target.

Once you decide to take the first step in receiving your initial Prolotherapy treatment, you will see results in as little as two weeks. This treatment requires most patients to receive anywhere from two to six separate Regenerative Injection Therapy treatments and doctors recommend that they be spaced approximately three weeks apart.

Even though this may seem like a long-term commitment, DreamBody’s convenient Scottsdale location makes the process that much easier to assist you in getting to a pain free lifestyle.

The Benefits

Once you go through the process of receiving your Prolotherapy treatments, you will never look back. Since this form of treatment has been approved by the FDA since 1995, many people have received this form of treatment with long-lasting, positive results. You will be able to go about your life and participate in the activities that you love and keep you healthy. Even though the use of Stem Cells is a topic many individuals are still unsure of, with the usage of this particular form of Stem Cell replacement for nearly 20 years, we ensure our patients that this method of treatment is safe and beneficial for your health.

However, if you still aren’t sold on the idea of RIT, we encourage you to do some research for yourself! The FDA and StemCellMLM.com provide useful information for anyone who wants to know more about the Adult Stem Cell process and what some of the pros and cons may be.
