How we treat joint pain without Surgery

Cut Out the Pain, Not the Joint
AROmotion was founded by a think tank of Physicians, Surgeons, and University Scientists that integrated the perspectives and technologies of Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Interventional Pain and Internal Medicine to understand and treat Osteoarthritis.
The AROmotion procedure is a minimally invasive and non-traumatic treatment that provides rapid and long-lasting pain relief, surpassing the results of traditional joint replacement surgery.

Making Sense of Osteoarthritis

Words Matter

Although chronic osteoarthritis pain is often associated with lost of joint space, being bone-on-bone is not the direct cause of the pain nor does not mean your joint is shot.

On the ends of your bones is a hard shell of hyaline cartilage that protects the nerve endings within the bones. This hyaline cartilage is the same hard type 2 collagen found under the enamel on your teeth.

Over time from wear and tear, the articular cartilage thins and tiny cavities occur in the protective shell called chondromalacia. These cavities leave the nerves in the bone less protected. As a result, normal activities like walking become painful.

One Treatment, Three Medical Approaches

The AROmotion treatment
Our three-step approach breaks the vicious cycle of pain and inflammation to create a non-toxic and nurturing joint environment, enabling healing within the joint.
Normalizing the joint environment to a non-toxic and nurturing state is cornerstone of the AROmotion procedure.

Radio Frequency Ablation

Stop the pain

Each joint has specific nerves that send pain signals to the brain. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive and non-traumatic procedure that disrupts this pain signaling by heating the nerves with a needle under X-ray guidance.
RFA provides rapid and significant pain relief, decreases swelling, improves mobility, and accelerates the reconditioning of the muscles and ligaments that move the joint.
Importantly, RFA also turns off the production of Substance-P, the neuropeptide responsible for inflammation, which stops the cycle of toxic inflammation and pain, creating a stable and nurturing environment for healing from within the joint.

Orthobiologics

Promote Healing

Orthobiologics help restore deteriorated cartilage, lubricate the joint, and create a healthy environment that promotes further strengthening.
Orthobiologics are more effective within the normalized and nontoxic environment created by the RFA procedures.

Reconditioning

Strengthen and condition

Patients with osteoarthritis often adapt their movement to avoid pain, commonly altering their gait to a shuffle instead of normal heel-to-toe walking, resulting in weaknesses and imbalances in key muscle groups.
RFA procedures help patients regain mobility by providing rapid pain relief and decreased swelling, enabling them to return to their normal gait and use previously weakened muscle groups.
We provide patients with a targeted reconditioning program to retrain and strengthen the muscles and ligaments that move the joints.

Our Outcomes

Better WOMAC scores than traditional surgery.

In 2017, we pioneering nonsurgical alternative to total joint replacement, combining radiofrequency ablation, orthobiologic therapies, and total joint reconditioning. Since then, we have surpassed 4,000 procedures and are the largest and most experienced provider integrating Radio Frequency Ablation with Orthobiologic Therapies and Patient-Centric Reconditioning Protocols.
Our physicians are trained observers conducting a multi-year research case series measuring both pre-procedure and post-procedural outcomes using the WOMAC assessment protocol. With 7 years and over 4,000 procedures, our patients' WOMAC data unequivocally shows lasting improvement that consistently exceeds the WOMAC scores of patients who have undergone total joint replacement surgery.

Years
The Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) is one of the most widely used, self-administered health questionnaires for patients with Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis. It assesses pain, stiffness, and function on a scale of 0-4, with 0 as the best feeling and 4 as the worst (i.e. No Pain - Painful).
