The orthopedic condition that impacts the tendons and ligaments rather than the joint membranes is referred to as enthesopathy.
While many doctors will recommend invasive surgical techniques such as arthroscopy, which is used to repair damaged ligaments, a newer, more innovative option is available—cell-based therapy.
Treating Enthesopathy with Cell-Based Therapy
The National Institue of Regenerative Medicine pioneered the use of cell-based therapy and platelet rich plasma in conjunction with traditional orthopedics to address a variety of orthopedic concerns. These noninvasive treatments are optimal for treating conditions affecting tendons, ligaments and joints.
