Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) mainly treats joint and chronic pain, in addition to muscle injuries. Treatments involve the injection of a natural solution into the affected muscle tissue. Injection therapy helps repair your tendons and ligaments by encouraging healing and new, healthy tissue to form.
When you injure tissue, it sends a signal to the body to begin the healing process. During this process, your body removes damaged tissue and replaces it with new, healthy tissue, creating an inflammatory state that can be painful.
Anti-inflammatories or steroids treat the pain of inflammation but can suppress the healing process. RIT, however, seeks to replicate the normal, tissue-healing process by injecting a substance into the tissue that stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal.
Benefits of regenerative injection treatment include:
- An increase in movement and functional ability
- Improved muscle strength
- Reduced pain levels
- Possible alternative to prescription medication or surgical procedures
