Healing Joint Tissue
Joint Pain / Degeneration
Arthritis is a common condition that affects approximately 350 million people worldwide and nearly 40 million people in the United States. There are more than 100 different kinds of arthritis, a condition of the joints that causes pain, swelling, and stiffness and limits range of motion. The cause of these difficulties is the breakdown of cartilage in the joints themselves. Cartilage is unique in that it is a kind of tissue that doesn’t contain blood vessels and therefore heals or regenerates at a very slow rate. In osteoarthritis, the most common form of the disease, the pain comes from the wearing away of the cartilage, which leaves no protection for the joints with movement.

The biggest issue with this disease is that none of the medical treatments currently used (drugs or surgery) do anything to help the joint repair itself. The aim of these procedures is pain relief and to replace the entire joint itself when deemed necessary, which inherently comes with its own complications.
How many people reading this have ever gotten a shot of corticosteroids (a cortisone shot)? It is one of the most common treatments for joint pain, but like everything else all it does is mask the pain. New research suggests that corticosteroids increase cartilage cell death, alters cartilage and collagen production, is toxic to stem cells, and decreases the ability to repair tendons. This would potentially wear out your joints faster, pushing you down the road to getting a replacement much earlier than would be needed.
The two therapies that we use at our office both have the same treatment goal: to restore and repair joint tissue.
Electrical Cell Signaling Therapy
It works on pain through a method called electric cell signaling (EST). The EST treatments work to reestablish normal cellular healing. It provides pain relief due to:
Ligand/hormone activity imitation
Improved membrane permeability
Activation of Regeneration — cAMP (Cell repair and normalization)
Immune system support (Gap Junction) through enhanced communication cell-to-cell
It is the only EST device published in multiple medical journals and used in clinical research proving the ability to heal tissue and regenerate nerves.
Electrical Cell Signaling is an FDA Cleared & Medicare/Insurance Accepted Treatment for:
Electrical Cell Signaling Peripheral
