Ischial Tuberosity Bursitis
Ischial tuberosity bursitis occurs when the bursa that lies next to the ischial tuberosity gets inflamed. It’s usually caused by long distance or frequent running, especially in a person not used to exercising. It’s also caused by extended periods of sitting, particularly on hard surfaces. Once the bursa becomes inflamed, symptoms include pain, redness, and swelling.
Technological Advancements in the Treatment of Ischial Tuberosity Bursitis
The Institute of Regenerative Medicine is also a leader in platelet rich plasma injections. Like cell therapy, this treatment is via injection. The patient’s own blood is taken, the platelets are separated, and are then re-introduced back into the body.
These new treatments are allowing people worldwide a speedier recovery from ischial tuberosity bursitis, as well as a variety of other orthopedic injuries and conditions. Neural therapy is allowing patients better pain management while their bodies heal, while the new and promising cell and platelet rich plasma therapies are actually allowing the body to heal with light speed efficiency. Thanks to this latest orthopedic research, people will be able to overcome injury safely and naturally, without the heavy risks of traditional treatment.
IRM is also a leader in platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Like cell-based therapy, this treatment is via injection. The patient’s blood is taken, the platelets are separated, then are re-introduced back into the body.
