Regenerative Health Providers and Physicians

The regenerative health providers at QC Kinetix are highly trained doctors and physician assistants who are board certified in sports medicine, orthopedic medicine and surgery, emergency medicine, geriatrics, and pain management. Each took their own path to discover the power of regenerative medicine to alleviate pain for their patients. We’re proud to work with these compassionate and skilled healers at the QC Kinetix regenerative health centers nationwide

Non-Invasive Surgical Alternative

Some causes of persistent musculoskeletal pain must be resolved through surgery. When we see cases like this, our regenerative health providers let our patients know their best course of action resides with a surgeon. But surgery is often not the only option or the best solution for many patients. Many of our physicians have seen patients undergo surgery only to compound their initial pain. Our minimally invasive, nonsurgical regenerative treatments for joint pain harness the enormous power of the human body to repair and renew itself. In this way, we go to the source of the pain to resolve it naturally. 

Many of our physicians and regenerative health providers began their careers in sports medicine. Working with professional athletes to mend broken bones and repair torn ligaments and tendons is highly rewarding. But too often, professional athletes and weekend warriors push themselves to return to the activities they love before they have fully healed from surgery. 

Unfortunately, orthopedic surgery often does as much or more damage to the body than the injury it seeks to repair. So a lengthy and painful recovery period is necessary. Regenerative medicine is an entirely different approach that enlists the body’s abilities to heal and repair its damaged tissues. 

Pain-Free Without Pills

Some of our regenerative health physicians have spent years combatting repeated opioid prescriptions and the resulting opioid addictions. It is so difficult for a doctor to gaze into the pain-filled eyes of their patients and refuse to help. But this understandable compassion has led to the nightmare of opioid abuse. 

So, rather than masking their patients’ pain temporarily, which invites reinjury, these physicians found their way to regenerative medicine instead. They can now provide their patients with genuine pain relief through natural biologic treatments that alleviate low back painelbow painknee pain, and more.

Even steroids are not the cure-all some doctors make them out to be. Although oral and injected steroids relieve inflammation, they have the potential for some pretty nasty side effects. And the injection of steroids can break down cartilage at the injection site, which leads to more pain. Our regenerative health providers with a background in pain management provide natural treatments that repair and resolve pain without compounding it with additional stress and toxic side effects.
