Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many typically scheduled activities have been either cancelled or postponed indefinitely. Although many areas are already entering Phase Two (where many businesses are allowed to open back up), experts are predicting a second wave of the pandemic to hit equally hard, or more than the first wave.
So, if you’re suffering from chronic joint pain, you may be wondering what your treatment options are during these times of uncertainty. Perhaps you had a joint replacement scheduled, but had to delay or cancel the procedure. Or, maybe you’re just now beginning your search for chronic joint pain treatments.
Whatever your position may be, Flexogenix® is here to help.
Why Non-Surgical Solutions?
Orthopedic and sports medicine has made tremendous advancements over the past decade. These advancements are cleared by the FDA and provide new options for patients to help them harness their body’s natural healing potential. Another major benefit our non-surgical approach offers is little-to-no downtime. We encourage patients to explore these options before going under the knife and through an exhaustive rehabilitation process.
Like knees, your hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists and ankles are synovial joints. That means the joints are surrounded by a cartilage capsule filled with a fluid called synovial fluid that lubricates and nourishes the joint. With time, injury or the onset of osteoarthritis, that synovial fluid can be diminished—resulting in bone-on-bone friction, inflammation, limited mobility and chronic pain.
With the VisCare-Flex® protocol, we stop further degradation of the cartilage and then relubricate the joint with a natural lubricant called hyaluronic acid. Each treatment is performed using advanced imaging technology. This allows the medical team to see inside the joint throughout the procedure to ensure the ultimate accuracy and effectiveness.
Unlike surgery, VisCare-Flex® requires no downtime. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. Patients walk out of the clinic the same day, with most patients choosing to drive themselves home.
In the 6-8 months following the VisCare-Flex® procedure, the mobility of the joint should continue to improve. To enhance that improvement, we offer continued support and strengthening through our Kineti-Flex® program. We will work to continually strengthen and realign the joint to improve function and mobility and eliminate the underlying causes of future pain.
If you’re only addressing the pain, and ignoring all the contributing factors that caused the pain, you’re missing the big picture. That’s why we developed our innovative Kineti-Flex® program and why we make it an essential part of every treatment protocol we provide.
Kineti-Flex® is best described as a Medically Supervised Rehabilitation and Physical Conditioning Prescription. It is designed by your physician specifically for you. In creating your individualized program your physician takes into account every factor and variable that may have caused your initial joint pain. He or she then implements and supervises an individualized conditioning program to correct the problem, and prevent your joint pain from returning again.
The Knee-Flex 5-Step Protocol takes the very latest FDA approved non-surgical knee pain treatment, and enhances it to provide a level of results that few others can match.
It is designed to provide both rapid pain relief and a substantial increase in mobility so you can get back to being active, and enjoying life. And, unlike the temporary relief of steroid injections, Knee-Flex 5-Step can provide long-term relief, so you can start to exercise again, lose weight and break free from the vicious cycle of knee pain.
Through a simple injection, a natural lubricating gel called Hyaluronic Acid is introduced into the knee joint where it re-nourishes the cartilage and provides lubrication and cushioning to the joint. This process, known as visco-supplementation, can provide a substantial reduction in pain level as well as improved comfort and mobility in the knee. We then complement the procedure with a series of proprietary treatments that provide a level of life changing results that few other clinics can match.
Regenerative cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) exist naturally inside the various tissues in our bodies. When tissue damage occurs, these regenerative cells and PRP have the ability to localize to the damaged area in the body and initiate a natural healing process that can both repair injured tissue and regenerate new healthy tissue.
As we age and incur more serious injuries, however, our bodies often cannot harness enough regenerative capacity naturally to fully heal or correct the problem. That’s where Progeni-Flex™ comes in.
Progeni-Flex™ allows us to determine which type of regenerative technique is best for you and to prepare highly potent advanced orthobiologics. We then inject these materials into the damaged tissue where they can promote an accelerated natural healing process.
What makes Progeni-Flex™ so successful is our ability to harness the most potent and highly concentrated regenerative cells and then deliver them with pinpoint accuracy to the injured area for maximum effectiveness. Many other therapies use highly processed donor stem cells or a less precise method of delivery. This is one of the key differentiators that sets Progeni-Flex™ apart and improves outcomes for our patients.
