Non-Surgical Treatments for Common Orthopedic Conditions and Chronic Pain in Portland, Oregon
Cascade Regenerative Medicine can help alleviate the pain associated with all of the most common orthopedic conditions using a variety of cutting-edge non-surgical techniques. Whether the pain is new or old, from an injury or gradual, we have the tools to help ease your pain naturally, using the body's own healing power.
We treat all of the conditions below from head-to-toe, always image-guided.
Osteoarthritis (OA) can affect just about any joint but most commonly occurs in the knees, hips, and hands. Low-grade inflammation over a long period of time causes a gradual degradation of the cartilage surfaces within the joint resulting in pain and dysfunction.
Low back pain and neck pain are complex and almost always multifactorial. Addressing instability between the vertebrae and arthritic changes can help immensely but determining the correct diagnosis first is key.
Meniscus Tear and Injury
The meniscus of the knee is made from tough fibrocartilage that has difficulty healing from injury due to lack of blood flow. Meniscus tears can be acute or chronic and can also contribute to arthritis development if not addressed properly.
Labrum Tear and Injury
The labrum of the hip and shoulder is made from tough fibrocartilage that has difficulty healing from injury due to lack of blood flow. Labrum tears can be acute or chronic and can also contribute to arthritis development if not addressed properly.
Carpal tunnel syndrome and tarsal tunnel syndrome are some of the most common nerve entrapment conditions that can be treated effectively without surgery. An entrapped nerve can become both physically stuck and chemically inflamed, both of which can be addressed with a small needle under image-guidance.
Tendon Tear and Injury
Rotator cuff damage, achilles tendon injury, and tennis elbow are examples of tendon issues that we treat with a high success rate. Tendons undergo cumulative stress and/or single injuries that damage the tissue. Continued use makes it difficult to heal but treatment can get you over the hump.
Sprains & Hypermobility
Repetitive sprains is a common way to acquire hypermobile joints through injury. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a condition where hypermobility is genetic. Both causes of hypermobility can cause pain and dysfunction but both can be effectively treated.
Foot & Ankle Pain
Plantar fasciosis, bunions, ankle sprains, and "metatarsalgia" are all conditions that Dr. Oltman has treated successfully in hundreds of patients. His work at a specialty Foot & Ankle clinic uniquely position him to address any cause of foot pain naturally. Whether it's footwear changes, exercise, or regenerative injections, we have your foot pain solution.
For patients that have seen all the specialists, had all the imaging done with no definitive results, and who have been disregarded with "it's all in your head", we offer creative and compassionate care that addresses the full biopsychosocial spectrum of pain. Pain is often more than just tissue damage and we offer the tools to address it holistically.
