Arthritis is one of the leading causes of tissues and cartilage degeneration that causes chronic pain in various parts of the body. When tissue degeneration becomes advanced, it is often referred to as bone on bone arthritis. Patients with bone on bone arthritis have complete joint space narrowing as a result of cartilage loss. This means that the bones (of the knee, shoulder, hip, or wrists) are rubbing together which causes extreme pain. The purpose of cartilage is to support and cushion the movement of joints and bones. Loss of this tissue therefore leads to chronic pain that can disrupt mobility and every day activity. Bone spurs are often present in patients with bone on bone arthritis as the bone grows out in attempts to make up for the lost cartilage. In addition to extreme pain, bone on bone arthritis may also cause locking or sticking of the affected joint, clicking noises when moving the joint, and decreased range of mobility. Bone on bone patients are told that their last hope is complete joint replacement surgery as they have no cartilage left to save. Joint replacement surgeries, however, don't always have such positive outcomes and may lead to further complications.
The truth is, if you are able to move your joint at all, then there are still live tissues present in the joint. Recent research into chronic pain has shown that even those who suffer from bone on bone arthritis can experience tissue regeneration. While those with bone on bone arthritis may have very little tissue left and extremely thinned out cartilage, they still possess microvessels that contain oxygen and red blood cells within the joint. These microvessels are essential in healing - cortisone shots and surgery destroy these microvessels, meaning that those treatment options are actually detrimental to the natural healing process. Our treatment, on the other hand, supports your body's natural ability to heal itself. This chronic pain therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free option that is available at Chronic Care of Richmond.
Are you tired of hearing that surgery is your only option? Surgery can lead to complications, infections, and long recovery times. The risk of complications also increases with age. At Chronic Care of Richmond, we believe in therapies that support healing and require minimal recovery time. Don't let degenerative, chronic arthritis take over your life. With the help of Chronic Care of Richmond, you can have your life back. With our chronic pain treatment, you can finally experience freedom from your degenerative chronic joint pain.

DC, BCIM, DAAIM
Dr. Bryant Snyder is a leader in the field of non-drug, non-surgical chronic pain procedures. He has successfully managed thousands of patients suffering from chronic joint pain, peripheral neuropathy, and other chronic neurological and metabolic conditions.
Dr. Bryant Snyder graduated from Life University in Marietta, Georgia and has been in full-time practice since 2002. He regularly attends post-graduate educational seminars on topics such as regenerative medicine, functional neurology, functional medicine, spinal structure, and nutrition and also consults other doctors in his profession.
Dr. Snyder is a graduate of the American Functional Neurology Institute (AFNI). He is Board Certified in Integrative Medicine and is a diplomate in Whole Medical Systems from the American Association of Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Snyder and his wife of 20 years, Jenneane, have three beautiful children, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby. They enjoy sports of all kinds as well as hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
Growing up Jenneane always got an “x” in that box on the report card for “Excessive talking”. Although her teachers may not have agreed at the time, that “x” that just reflected her love of people – being around them, talking to them, helping them. Her passion for people transitioned into a passion for little people as an elementary school teacher. She later moved on to work in a successful children’s franchise company in which she eventually became Vice President, where she helped people who wanted to bring enrichment education to children in their community. But everything changed when Bryant first learned about regenerative medicine and how it was helping people with chronic pain. He was in his 16th year of practice when they realized that by incorporating stem cells into the practice, they could not only help current patients, but they could also help the people in our community who are living with chronic pain and have lost hope. Those who have tried everything else and just want their life back! This was the only natural path for them to take. So, Jenneane quit her career, they both received an immense amount of training, they worked hard, and here they are – offering a safe, affordable, effective, non-invasive procedure for chronic pain to their community. When she is not working in or on their practice, she is with the people she is most passionate about – their three kiddos, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby who keep them busy and happy. And, at the root of it all, everyone has the right to be happy. If you are living with chronic pain, you, too, can once again be truly happy! Jenneane is seeing the life-changing results in their patients and that, too, makes her happy.
