In the past we have been using Hyaluronic acid injections for generative arthritic knees for many years. Some of the brand names of medicine we’ve been using for this purpose are Supartz, Euflexxa, and Hyalgan. Patients often call these injections “rooster comb shot” because they are harvest from comb of chicken. Hyaluronic acid is essentially, WD40 for your creaky, damaged, dried up joint.

I am excited to announced that now we have a new kind of hyaluronic acid injection that’s been giving us better results. The new injection, called Genvisc, is more synthetic in a sense that it’s grown by bacterial fermentation, however, it is “avian free” or animal, chicken part free. In a short period of time we’ve been using Genvisc, patients are getting better and faster results with this new generation of knee injection.

Another good news is that (regular medicare, not HMO or replacement coverage) has been consistently been covering this injection.

So if you suffer from knee pain, regenerative medicine is out of your budget, or you’ve tried Hyalgan and it didn’t work as good, call Angelica or Karen at 832-463-6279 and tell them you want to come in for Genvisc injection for your knee.

Until next time,

Summer is almost here! Most people associate summer with outdoor activities, but if you are suffering from chronic pain, you may miss out on the fun. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to partake in your favorite water sport or beach game. Read on to find out what you can do to get back to feeling your best in time for summer!

My patients experience a wide array of pains, from back pain to joint pain, to migraines, and more. I believe that the best way to approach pain management is to focus on healing, which will bring long-term relief. “Band-Aid fixes” such as taking over-the-counter pain meds only provide temporary relief and do not address the root of the problem. If you want a permanent solution to your chronic pain, be sure to seek out treatment designed to heal, not just mask the symptoms.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is a treatment that uses undifferentiated cells, called stem cells, to treat damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Stem cell therapy promotes the repair of tissue, which enables the body to heal. This non-invasive method can help you avoid surgery and pain medication. This is a very effective method for treating chronic pain, especially when used with another complementary therapy.

Physical Rehabilitation

Physical therapy is a great way to strengthen the body and joints as they heal. This type of therapy uses specific exercises and activities to increase strength, mobility, and flexibility. It is often used as a complementary therapy to other methods such as stem cell treatment. Physical rehabilitation helps you get back to 100% as you put chronic pain behind you.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy

PEMF Therapy uses low-level electromagnetic radiation to treat damaged tissue and bone. This radiation treatment works to balance the electromagnetic fields of your cells, which become disrupted when your body is injured. Once your cells are re-balanced, they can function properly and help you recover.

Lifestyle and Nutritional Consulting

True and complete healing often requires lifestyle changes to keep your body healthy. At Campbell Medical Group, we offer lifestyle and nutritional consulting to help guide you. This treatment option may include dietary changes and exercise regimens to stop your chronic pain and keep it from returning!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am very close to my mother. Our relationship is one of my biggest treasures, and she has influenced my life and path in countless ways—including my career.

A passion to serve

Serving others is at the core of working in the healthcare industry. Helping people have a better quality of life is why I have dedicated my own life to my work and my practice.

The very best part of my job is that I get to take care of my mother first. She suffers from arthritis, hand pain, and the frailty that accompanies aging. I have been able to treat her with several therapies that I offer at my practice, including regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy, and chiropractic care. I have seen her regain strength and once again be able to carry out day-to-day activities without pain.

“I am not just the president, but I’m also a client”

Anything I do in the office, I first try out on my mother and myself. My patients can take comfort in knowing that when I tell them something works, it’s because I’ve tried it firsthand!

Undergoing the treatment I provide to others also helps me better understand the sensations, side effects, and other aspects of any given treatment. I can answer questions honestly and am able to recommend treatments based on what I know from personal experience. I treat my patients like family, and I wouldn’t suggest or provide any treatment I hadn’t tried on myself and my loved ones.

My motivation

I have seen the difference my treatments have made for my mother. It gives me motivation to keep learning, researching, and working to make a difference in the lives of as many people as possible. My mother has taught me the role of compassion in my work, and she continues to spark my passion for and dedication to helping others overcome their pain and health issues.

Knee pain can be a common ailment. This is because knees are the most vulnerable joints that you have. Taking steps to protect them is important. If you are suffering from arthritis, or dealing with knee pain for some other reason, the following tips could help you reduce knee pain in your daily life.

Of course, you should always talk to a medical professional if you are having severe knee pain. At Campbell Medical Clinic, we want to help our patients find ways to manage their knee pain. If you have any questions, please give us a call.

Here are 5 ways to relieve knee pain:

1: Go to the doctor.

This is the most important step to keep in mind. If you are having knee pain, make an appointment soon. We can work with you to figure out the cause of your pain, and then start to help you treat that pain and find the relief you are seeking.

2: Manage your weight.

Your knees support your body weight. Gaining weight can put pressure on your knees. Every pound you gain is equal to around four pounds of added pressure on your knees. So, even losing a couple of pounds can help relieve pressure. If you are overweight, managing your health by staying active and improving your diet has many health benefits including possibly helping with knee pain.

3: Work on key muscles as a way to strengthen them.

One of the best ways to reduce wear and tear to your knees is to build up the muscles around the area. You should focus especially on your thighs including your quadriceps and hamstrings. Warming up by walking around outside or on the treadmill is important.

Then, you can try a couple different exercises such as:

Short Arc Quad – This is where you lie on your back with your knee resting on a rolled towel. Then, you tighten your thigh muscles while you lift and straighten your knee. Hold this pose for five seconds and repeat on your other leg.

Wall Slides – Press your back against the wall and slide gently into a sitting position. Slide as far down as you can while still feeling comfortable. Hold this position for a few seconds and then slowly slide back up.

4. Be careful and gentle when you exercise.

Running on concrete and asphalt can be hard on your knees. So, if you are a runner, consider going through wooded areas or running on a treadmill instead.

You could also consider other kinds of exercise such as biking. But, keep in mind that you can cause knee pain if you put the resistance on a stationary bike up too high.

Think about the type of exercise you typically do and if this could be causing strain on your knees. If so, there is likely a way you can modify the exercise to be safer for your joints.

5: Get rid of those heels-as well as flats.

High heels aren’t good for knees or feet. It is recommended that you wear heels that are not higher than two inches. Shoes without arch support are also bad for your knees. So, avoid ballet flats and flimsy flip-flops. You could also consider an insert that provides arch support.

If you’ve been suffering from knee pain, contact Campbell Medical Center in Houston, Texas. We are happy to schedule you a consultation, and we want to work with you to relieve your knee pain. Our office offers advanced diagnostic techniques, and we provide attentive medical care to each one of our patients.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, you may have tried everything from pain killers to physical therapy to surgery in an effort to find relief. Or maybe you’d rather skip all that. Regardless, you just want to get your life back and get rid of your pain for good! You aren’t out of options, and it may be time to ask your doctor about stem cell therapy.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that helps your body recover and repair itself. Stem cell therapy uses stem cells, which are undifferentiated cells in the body that can reproduce to make new, specialized cells. These specialized cells can function as muscle cells, brain cells, or blood cells. These cells are used to repair the damaged tissue that is causing pain. Stem cell therapy can treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, pain in the back, shoulder, knees, and more.

The benefits of stem cell therapy

  • Avoid surgery & pain meds
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Encourages repair
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Minimizes formation of scars
  • Recover function
  • Can treat a wide range of conditions

Stem cell therapy can offer an effective, lasting, alternative solution to your pain. For those searching for relief from chronic pain, stem cell therapy is a great treatment option. Ask your doctor about stem cell therapy so that you can make an informed decision about managing your chronic pain.

I have dedicated a good portion of my career to learning and researching about stem cell therapy. I travel around the country to collaborate with other great minds in the field, and I speak frequently on the topic. My practice, Campbell Medical Group, is Houston’s leading medical clinic for stem cell therapy, among other pain management and relief treatments. I believe wholeheartedly in this method for pain management, and have seen great success for my patients.

Joint pain is a common problem that too many people continue to suffer with. It can limit your ability to perform everyday tasks and do activities that you enjoy. Further, it can affect your movement and leave you in continuous, long-term pain. So when is enough, enough? Read on to find out when you should see a doctor for your joint pain.

What is joint pain and what causes it?

Joint pain is pain resulting from damage to or deterioration of the joints, where two bones meet. Many factors can cause joint pain, including: repetitive movements, injury, poor posture, tendinitis, arthritis, or physical illness.

When you should see a doctor:

  • You joint pain affects your day-to-day life
  • Your pain is persistent
  • You feel helpless about your pain
  • You have been treating your pain solely with OTC pain relievers
  • You feel like you’ve “tried everything” in terms of at-home remedies or OTC medication

Joint pain often requires actual medical treatment in order to heal and provide long-term relief. Your condition may require a combination of different treatments, such as physical therapy paired with stem cell therapy. Only a doctor can help determine the right steps to take in order to achieve a lasting solution to your joint pain. Additionally, seeing a doctor (or multiple doctors) is the best way to learn about all of the options available to you for treating your pain.

At Campbell Medical Group, we see many patients that are experiencing pain to the point that it is negatively affecting their quality of life. We work with our patients to find the right solution, often using stem cell therapy to repair and regenerate the damaged joints to restore function while reducing or eliminating pain. There’s no reason to keep living with joint pain. Talk to your doctor about your options!
