Why do I have Joint Pain? There can be numerous reasons why someone is in need of joint pain relief. Some of the common causes of joint pain include fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease. Injuries that result in torn ligaments or cartilage and bone fractures are also causes.
Joint pain relief can be achieved without drugs or surgery

At our pain relief clinic, we will assess the underlying cause of your painful joints and then create a natural treatment plan that will address the root cause and provide you with long-lasting pain relief.
Knee Joint Pain Relief
When you having aching knees and every step you take reminds you something isn’t right, treating the underlying cause of your joint pain is the most effective strategy. If you simply continue to mask the symptoms with medication, then the pain will always return as soon as the medication wears off.
It’s only when the issues causing the pain are fixed that you will experience long-term results. Knee replacement surgery is also an option, but these procedures are highly invasive with long recovery and rehabilitation.
Natural treatments using regenerative medicine are effective and produce few side effects, if any.
Non-Surgical Treatments for Chronic Joint Pain
Regenerative medicine is a natural way to help relieve your joint pain and allow you to get on with your daily life. We use regenerative cells that are collected from the Wharton’s Jelly of umbilical cords that have been donated by carefully screened mothers. These young cells are loaded with healing compounds that include exosomes, cytokines, extracellular matrix, proteins and growth factors. As we age, these healing factors decline in our own cells, which is why mesenchymal cells from Wharton’s Jelly are preferred for joint pain relief.
PRP, or protein-rich plasma is another regenerative treatment we use to help relieve your chronic joint pain.
This treatment involves :
- Drawing a small sample of your blood
- Spinning the blood in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets
- Injecting the highly concentrated platelets into your damaged joints to encourage healing
The platelet-rich plasma in these injections will help to repair and rejuvenate injured or degraded cells and tissues in your affected joints and boost your body’s own natural healing process. It’s important to note that PRP injections are not used for arthritis treatment, but they are used for fibromyalgia.
Conversely, regenerative cellular tissue is not used for fibromyalgia, but it is used for arthritis, so we have an effective treatment for you regardless of the underlying cause of your joint pain.
