If you suffer from chronic or acute wrist or hand pain due to arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or injury, then you may benefit from physical therapy, traditional orthopedic care, non-surgical stem cell injections or even stem cell-enhanced surgery.
About the Wrist and Hand
Your wrist is made up of eight small bones known as carpals. They support a tube that runs through your wrist. That tube, called the carpal tunnel, has tendons and a nerve inside. It is covered by a ligament, which holds it in place.
Wrist pain is common. Repetitive motion can damage your wrist. Everyday activities like typing, racquet sports or sewing can cause pain, or even carpal tunnel syndrome. Wrist pain with bruising and swelling can be a sign of injury. The signs of a possible fracture include misshapen joints and inability to move your wrist. Some wrist fractures are a result of osteoporosis.
Other common causes of wrist or hand pain are sprains and strains, tendinitis, arthritis, gout and pseudogout.
What makes stem cell therapy at McKenna Orthopedics different?
At McKenna Orthopedics, we are augmenting BMAC with a pliable tissue allograft (transplant) developed by Dr. McKenna. It is derived from human placental amnion, which functions as a biologic structural matrix to facilitate and enhance tissue healing and repair. It contains 108 different growth factors including more than 10 times the amount of WNT-4 and more than 60 times the amount of prostaglandin as competing products.
Prostaglandin inhibits inflammation, which occurs after injury and marks the beginning of the healing process. The faster we can tame this inflammation, the sooner the body can move on to the next phase of healing, regeneration.
