Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you move. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain. Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. It may go away after a few weeks (acute), or last for several weeks or months (chronic). Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect your quality of life. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. Joint pain is extremely common. In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.At Amnion, we treat your pain through the use of naturally occurring amniotic fluid which is highly concentrated in growth cells and hyaluronic acid which lubricates joints and tendons and eases the pain. This also helps restore mobility. Hyaluronic acid is the acid that is naturally occurring in the knee. Boosting your natural hyaluronic acid can help to cushion your knee so that there is less bone on bone pain.Studies have shown that amniotic fluid is naturally regenerative and can greatly reduce inflammation and scars. Amniotic fluid, the fluid surrounding a fetus in pregnancy, also contains nutrients, hormones, and antibodies. Amniotic growth cell therapy is a very safe and effective treatment. The fluid contains development factors that help to stimulate tissue growth, stem cell activity and naturally reduce inflammation. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which acts as a lubricant and promotes cartilage growth. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, amniotic cells go to the root of the problem and actually restore degenerated tissue which often leads to permanent pain relief.
