Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on whether it is soft tissue or joint injury/condition outcomes differ. With soft tissue injuries, there is a near 100% outcome with Regenerative treatments. When it comes to joints we have a near 90% success rate for knee pain and shoulder pain treatments. However every case is uniquely different and is assessed individually and in certain cases, more than one treatment is needed to achieve a better outcome.
The ethos of our regenerative treatments is to initiate self-healing and therefore it is not a quick fix. It will take at least a month to start noticing a difference from less pain to a better range of movement to no pain while sleeping to resuming activities or movements that were not possible before. In some cases, it may take 2-3 months to see significant improvements.
After regenerative treatment, the first week, you may be in pain at the injection site and the aftercare instructions you will be given will detail how to deal with that. The consultant may prescribe pain killers if he feels the need to.
If your job is anything but a desk job you may need one week off work. After-care instructions will be explained on consultation and procedure day. Regenerative treatments stand out from surgery by it’s little or no downtime.
In our clinic, Regenerative treatments are used as part of our Pain management protocols. Pain management treatments may be fully or partly covered by private medical insurance and you may also claim back part of the consultation fees, ask the receptionist for more details.
All Regenerative treatments are day case procedures, and depending on the treatment protocol decided by your consultant it should take you between 1 to 2 and a half hours from the time you walk in.
