HANDS/ WRISTS/ FINGERS
HELLO NEW DEXTERITY
Have you been told that steroid injections, PRP, stem cells or invasive surgery are your only options to treat your hand, wrist and finger issues? RELIEF™ provides an alternative that eliminates stubborn scar tissue to increase your mobility, frees nerves from entrapment to reduce your pain and catalyzes the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The best part: no surgery, medication, stem cells or downtime.
PAIN OR STIFFNESS IN HANDS, WRISTS, FINGERS
Perhaps you’ve grown accustomed to discomfort or limited mobility in your hand, wrist or fingers. Whether it’s from an old sports injury or another digital casualty courtesy of your hand-held device or keyboard, the usual options either don’t fully work or don’t last.
For instance, total joint reconstruction surgery may improve the condition, but because the biomechanical cause of your injury wasn’t addressed, numbness, tenderness or reduced motion can easily develop down the road.
RELIEF™ may be used to treat the injured, painful or poorly functioning foot and return you to a healthy and pre-injury state without invasive surgery or downtime.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by damage to the connective tissue that protects the median nerve in the wrist, causing pressure on the nerve leading to numbness, tingling, discomfort, and weakness in the hand. Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome involves destructive steroid injections and ultimately surgery to reduce nerve pinching by cutting ligaments in the wrist. This surgery can alter the stability of the wrist and lead to the formation of scar tissue that compresses the nerve again. RELIEF™ may be used to free nerves that have become entrapped and adhesed to the damaged connective tissue without surgery to return the wrist to a healthy and pre-injury state.
Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the cartilage, the connective tissue providing protective cushioning between the joints, wears out. When this happens, the bones rub directly against other bones causing extreme discomfort and limited range of motion. Discomfort, swelling, stiffness, and reduced range of motion are common symptoms of arthritis that can make daily activities difficult to do. RELIEF™ may be used to restore the damaged connective tissue to a healthy and pre-injury state without history or downtime.
“I could not walk or sleep. It has been a year since my treatment. I am now skiing, hiking and am back to 100%. It’s remarkable.”
|What It Is|
|RELIEF™ is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to catalyze your body’s natural ability to heal. We do not perform surgery. We do not mask symptoms with medication, cortisone or other steroids. We do not use stem cells.
The treatment utilizes dynamic ultrasound, 3D mapping and ScarMap™ imaging software to identify soft tissue abnormalities and locate entrapped nerves across the interstitial layer. Under ultrasound guidance, the treatment frees nerves from entrapment, eliminates scar tissue and restores the anatomy to its pre-injury state.
|What It Does|
|The treatment employs specialized needles to hydrodissect stiff and scarred tissue and free nerves from entrapment to surrounding connective tissue. FDA registered and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved growth factors, collagens, extracellular proteins naturally found in human placental tissues are administered to reduce inflammation, inhibit scar formation, and support tissue regeneration. Patients remain completely awake and engaged during the entire treatment and may experience symptom alleviation as soon as 1-10 days with continued improvement over the following weeks and months.|
|What To Expect|
|Usually about 24-48 hours after the procedure, patients are able to return to their favorite activities. No immobilization, bracing or other inconvenience post-treatment is required. Movement and light active recovery are recommended.|
