What are joint injections?
Joint injections are medications delivered directly to your injured or damaged joint via a needle. At Restore Osteo of Colorado, the team safely performs joint injections using their unique Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol (AARP) and the Genvisc 850 intra-articular system.

This Medicare-preferred alternative to knee replacement surgery uses fluoroscopy guidance to make sure the medication goes to the exact point of your injury or area of damage within the joint.

In most cases, your provider recommends visiting Restore Osteo of Colorado for once-a-week injections during your time in treatment. Over time, you should experience an improvement in symptoms like discomfort, pain, and joint stiffness that result from damage to the cartilage or soft tissues.

Genvisc 850 joint injections contain hyaluronate, a thick substance that can help lubricate your joints. With better lubrication, your damaged joint can move more smoothly and comfortably.

What can joint injections treat?
Joint injections can treat joint damage from osteoarthritis, particularly within your knees. Your provider might also recommend them for shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, or other joint pain. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and develops when the cartilage in your joints breaks down over time because of wear and tear.

Your knees are especially prone to osteoarthritis cartilage degeneration because they bear a lot of your body weight. They’re also responsible for holding you up when you stand and keeping you stable and mobile as you walk or run. Healthy cartilage absorbs the shock of your movements, but osteoarthritis can result in pain, stiffness, or instability. Joint injections improve the joint’s lubrication for smoother, more comfortable movement.

Hormone replacement therapy is a treatment that many women and men are turning to as they age. Hormone therapy for both sexes, which has been around since the 1930s, is gaining in popularity. More and more people are discovering just how easy and effective the procedure is when implemented correctly. Women going through menopause are particularly susceptible to improper hormone levels and it’s effects. Testosterone therapy has numerous benefits, especially to that category of patients.

Hormone Pellet Therapy uses hormones extracted from natural plants to replicate the body’s normal hormone levels. Implants placed just under the skin, release tiny and regular doses of hormones into the body, maintaining correct and natural levels. Other treatments, such as oral and transdermal therapy, produce high levels of hormones all at once.

Anti-aging is a broad field that can include both medical and cosmetic approaches to retaining the benefits of youth as you grow older.

Aging is an inevitable part of living, and though the average lifespan of Americans has been increasing in recent history, older citizens don’t always enjoy good health in their later years. Like most people, you probably want to stay healthy and youthful for as long as possible, even if you can’t stay young forever.

There’s exciting scientific research that’s looking at how understanding cell function, genetics, environment, and other factors influences how healthy people are as they age, which is already improving medical knowledge of how to retain youthfulness despite growing older. This research holds much promise for the future, but there’s already plenty you can do to remain fit and well as you age.

What are the best methods?
Doctors have known for many years that unhealthy lifestyle choices are a significant factor in causing ill health and death, but the extent to which your diet and lifestyle influence how well you age is becoming ever more apparent.

Put simply, the healthier your lifestyle, the more likely your body will be able to stay active and youthful as you get older. That means eating a balanced, nutritious diet that includes:

Plenty of fruit and vegetables
Whole grains and sources of fiber
Nuts and seeds
High-quality protein
Omega 3 fatty acids
Optimal levels of vitamins and minerals
Plenty of water
A wide variety of different foods
You should also minimize your consumption of:

Saturated and trans fats
Sugars
Processed foods
Salt
Refined grain products
Red meat
Alcohol
Exercising regularly, including aerobic exercise that gets your heart pumping, weight and resistance training to strengthen muscles, and stretching exercises to keep your body supple, are also essential.

Other causes of premature aging include:

Smoking
Taking drugs
Too much exposure to the sun or tanning beds
Not getting enough sleep
Chronic stress
Not managing other health conditions effectively
Learning to deal with stress, taking sufficient rest and time for yourself, and cutting out bad habits can make a significant difference as to how well you age.
