Joint pain in the hands and feet can be chronic or acute, but it is a persistent and ubiquitous problem affecting millions of people across the United States. For those who have not yet sought a professional medical opinion, the cause of the mysterious aches and pains in these oft-used extremities can be distracting and disconcerting. Others who have suffered some obvious injury, the cause of the pain isn’t as baffling as the reason why the pain seems to grow progressively worse. Still others are well aware of the chronic condition that affects them, but they have come to a crossroads to which all pain-sufferers are inevitably headed:
Do I continue to manage my discomfort with ever-escalating doses of dangerous and addictive analgesic drugs? Or, do I roll the dice with risky and expensive surgery?
Dr. John C. Haasis III, M.D., is proud to present another way. He practices regenerative medicine, an integrated approach to patient health and healing that honors the body to provide real relief to afflicted individuals. He’s been bucking the plodding pace of the medical establishment for over 25 years.

What Causes of Hand and Foot Pain?
Whether you spend the workday fixing and building things that last, or if you log in to a computer at the start of each morning, sipping coffee while your fingers dance across a keyboard, joint pain in the hands and feet does more than negatively impact your quality of life, it can threaten your very livelihood.
Fortunately for you, Dr. Haasis knows how to get the job done. He’ll first have to determine the exact cause of your joint pain, which can be a bit of an undertaking in itself. There is an intricate network of joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves in both the hands and feet. The myriad causes of pain in the hands and feet are only rivaled by the robust list of symptoms that will certainly signify an issue.
Initial Indications of Hand and Foot Pain
- Deep Aches
- Sharp Pains
- Joint Stiffness
- Burning Sensations
Joint pain in the hands and feet can be the result of some injury, or it may tell of some underlying condition, such as arthritis or peripheral neuropathy nerve damage, also known as nerve damage. Very often, persistent pain results from some combination of these things.
If you’d like to learn more about what you can do to treat your joint pain without drugs or surgery, contact us to schedule your private consultation at one of Dr. Hassis’ convenient locations across North and South Carolina. Call (864) 775-5682 to begin a long-overdue discussion about putting an end to the pain in your hands and feet.
What Is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder that frequently affects the fingers, although RA has been known to attack the toes, as well. This type of arthritis is insidious in its approach. Initial symptoms are slight and sporadic, leading many sufferers to delay diagnosis until the burden of pain is almost unbearable. Those who have suffered some injury in the hands and feet, or who have a lifestyle that greatly strains the joints may be at greater risk of acquiring RA or another variety of arthritis.
Symptoms of Any Type Arthritis
- Steady escalating pain in joints
- Eventual loss of motion in the affected area
- Joint movements that are accompanied by unsettling sounds, such as grinding, clicking, or cracking as the cartilage continues to wear down
- Swollen, tender and inflamed joints
- Weakness, loss of motions and, eventually, joint deformity
What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is another kind of arthritis. Indeed, it is one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of arthritis around the world. OA most commonly affects the larger joints, like the knees and hips. But, as the condition becomes more severe, osteoarthritis may also manifest in the feet and ankles, as well. Left untreated, OA will continue to degenerate the joints, causing cartilage cushions to wear away until the adjoining bones make painful contact.
What Is the Best Way to Treat Arthritis?
Arthritis sufferers frequently find themselves in an unenviable position: their chronic pain continually compels them to take action, but there are few treatment options and they are unappealing. Most doctors would simply refer you to surgery, but not Dr. John Haasis. Employing the latest advancements in stem cell therapy, Dr. Haasis can kickstart the body’s own healing processes. His customized joint injections can delay or eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming joint replacement surgery.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is the result of nerve damage that can be caused by some injury. It may also be the outcome of various health factors and lifestyle decisions. Peripheral neuropathy usually affects the legs and feet. Rather than the sharp and uncomfortable agony experienced in arthritis, peripheral neuropathy first appears as a loss of sensation in the affected area that is typically accompanied by weakness in the joints.
Typical Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
- An inexplicable phantom feeling of wearing an invisible “glove” or “sock”
- Both burning and freezing feelings that can appear suddenly and painfully
- Electric pins and needles around the joints
- Extreme sensitivity
- Pain-induced insomnia
- Loss of balance and muscle weakness
- Uncontrollable twitching
- Difficulty walking or moving
An Eye-Opening Private Consultation at Daisy Stem Cell
Your personal consultation with Dr. John Haasis at Daisy Stem Cell will be an education in the viable alternatives to the treatment options often affirmed by the medical establishment. Narcotic pain killers and disruptive surgery can have many unforeseen and unintended consequences. Integrative medicine involves a more holistic approach. Leveraging the remarkable ability of stem cells to multiply indefinitely, his joint pain injections can regenerate and replace damaged cartilage.
After Dr. Haasis determines the source of your joint pain in the hands and feet, and identifies its cause, he will map out a custom course of treatment that is ideal for you. Contact us to schedule your personal consultation. We also invite you to call (864) 775-5682 so you can speak directly with one of our helpful representatives.
Joint Pain Injections
Stem cells exhibit the unique ability to appropriate the traits of the surrounding tissues. When they are injected into areas of the hands and feet where you’re experiencing joint pain, they immediately begin to react to the presence of the injured, damaged cartilage. The stem cells specialize, becoming the type of tissue needed to heal the injury. Dr. Haasis’ joint pain injections encourage and amplify the body’s own healing abilities. Patients experience real relief, rather than simply masking the pain with drugs or replacing the joint entirely with manufactured prosthetics.
Treatment for Arthritis
All forms of arthritis result from an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s defenses become hyperactive. The immune system actually attacks the joints as it would a viral intruder. Over time, the joint tissues degrade, are rubbed raw and become the source of constant, excruciating discomfort. Joint pain injections are empowered by stem cell therapy that allows the body to heal itself. The stem cells will make themselves at home in your joints, creating new cartilage and regenerating other damaged tissues.
Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy
The unsettling symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are caused by nerve damage. Nerve damage is notoriously difficult for conventional medicine to treat and repair. With state-of-the-art stem cell therapy, however, what was once inconceivable is suddenly within our reach. Dr. Haasis will prepare the proper joint injections to appropriately address the size and severity of your case. Once injected, stem cells release neuroprotective and neuroregenerative factors at the site of injury. The stem cells will actually begin rebuilding nerves repairing nerve damage. After only a couple of treatments at Daisy Stem Cell, patients report experiencing fewer symptoms of peripheral neuropathy and a reduction in pain, as well.

Every patient’s course of treatment is tailored to their personal needs. A major failing of institutional medicine is the impersonal and bureaucratic means by which it goes about treating the symptoms of chronic pain, rather than seeking to improve the issues underlying it. Things are different at Daisy Stem Cell in South and North Carolina. Dr. Haasis believes in treating the patient, not the disease! At your confidential consultation, he will learn the particulars of your case. Your individual treatment plan will vary, as will its ultimate cost. At the conclusion of your consultation, Dr. Haasis and his team will quote you an accurate estimate.
