Joint Pain Treatment Options with Dr Hammond

Rheumatologist in Harley Street, West London and St Helier, Jersey.

Joint Pain can significantly impact one’s quality of life, often presenting challenges that extend beyond the scope of conventional treatments.

While anti-inflammatories and painkillers offer temporary relief, they may not address the underlying issues effectively. Steroid injections, commonly used for acute pain, have limitations, particularly in terms of their duration of effectiveness and potential adverse effects on cartilage, bone, and tendons.

Recognising the need for comprehensive solutions, Dr. Hammond offers a diverse range of options to address joint pain, tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

One alternative approach involves the utilisation of Orthobiologic materials, such as activated blood plasma and stem cells derived from sources like Lipogems or bone marrow.

These innovative treatments offer promising results for various joints, including knees, shoulders, and hips. Depending on the severity of osteoarthritis and the patient’s activity level, treatments like PRP, N-Stride, or Goldic can provide significant relief for extended periods, offering a viable option for those seeking long-term solutions.

Types of Joint Pain Treatments

Dr Hammond has extensive knowledge and experience treating the following joint pain treatments:

Plasma and Stem Cells

Revolutionary treatments utilising Orthobiologic materials like activated blood plasma and stem cells offer promising relief for joint pain, providing personalised solutions for patients seeking alternative options.

Interventions and Denervations

In cases where joint pain persists and surgery is not an option, advanced interventions such as Radio Frequency Heating (RF neurotomy) offer targeted relief by disrupting pain signals, providing viable alternatives for patients seeking effective pain management.

Advanced Physio

Advanced physiotherapy modalities, including ultrasound-guided shock wave therapy, play a vital role in addressing soft tissue and bony pain generators around damaged or worn joints, enhancing the effectiveness of joint treatments and improving overall outcomes.

In cases where joint pain persists despite conservative measures and surgery is not suitable, interventions like Radio Frequency Heating (RF neurotomy) can be employed to target and alleviate nerve-related pain. These advanced techniques aim to disrupt the transmission of pain signals from the affected joint, providing relief and improving overall function.

Additionally, advanced physiotherapy modalities, including ultrasound-guided shock wave therapy, play a crucial role in addressing soft tissue and bony pain generators around damaged or worn joints. By combining innovative treatments with targeted rehabilitation and physiotherapy, Dr. Hammond strives to offer comprehensive care to individuals struggling with joint pain, empowering them to regain mobility and enhance their quality of life.
