Wouldn’t it be great if tissue injuries could be repaired without surgery, giving you the ability to do things that you want to do, like play with your kids again, go hiking, swimming, ride a bike, and be… Pain Free!
Ankle sprain is a common injury caused by the stretch or tear of ligament. Ligaments, fibrous tissues that serve as connections between bones, are important structures for joint stability. Sprained ankles are reported in greater than 23,000 people each day in the US.
Arthritis is characterized by stiffness, swelling and pain in the joints. The joints in the body serve as connections between bones. Degeneration of the joints due to arthritis leads to reduced flexibility and mobility. Some cases of arthritis can cause damage to other organs as well, such as the eyes and skin.

A closer looks at the vertebral column will reveal that between adjacent vertebrae there exists a disc, acting as a cushion. The disc acts as a shock absorber, and the mechanical stresses of movements are transferred from the bones to the disc.
Elbow tendinitis is caused by damage to the elbow tendons, and is classified as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, depending on the site of tenderness. Tendons are tissues that connect muscle to bone. People who perform repetitive gripping activities are susceptible to this condition.
Arthritis affects the joints of the body, and can be classified into several types based on the etiology of disease—osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive deterioration of articular cartilage cushioning the ends of bones due to wear and tear.
Arthritis, or degeneration/inflammation of the joints, can affect the hip joint. It is estimated by a 2010 survey that 22% of the US population have some form of arthritis. This condition is also reported to result in compromised work-life in a third of all working-age arthritis patients.
The knee is an important joint of the body. Repeated injury or the overuse of the knee, such as during certain types of sports, may lead to stress on the tendons of the knee. Repeated stress causes tears in the tendon, and gradually weakens the structure, resulting in inflammation and pain.
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a prevalent neurodegenerative disorder that affects 1% of the general population over the age of 60 years. It is a progressive condition characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons in the region of the ventral midbrain, and nerves of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
