Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary area of medicine that provides personalized, natural treatment options for individuals seeking alternatives to risky surgeries and traditional medications that come with a long list of side effects. It aims to treat the underlying cause of ailments to eliminate pain permanently instead of masking the problem.
Instead of the temporary relief of pain medications or the risks that go into surgery, regenerative medicine heals the body from the source. Regenerative treatments utilize the restorative properties of regenerative cells to heal damaged ones.
These regenerative cells have the potential ability to help the body heal and regenerate naturally. The two regenerative medicine treatments that are preferred by our doctors are platelet-rich plasma and regenerative cellular tissue.
These can be used to treat a variety of injuries that cause pain, such as:
- Back pain or injury
- Damaged cartilage
- Joint pain
- Torn ligaments
Regenerative Medicine For Pain Relief
When experiencing pain or suffering from an injury, choosing the right treatment plan is an important decision. When considering any treatment plan, it’s important to research and make sure that the underlying issue is being treated in order to eliminate pain or side effects. A treatment such as regenerative cell therapy may be an option for you.
This treatment uses regenerative cells derived from the umbilical tissue from cesarean section births. These types of regenerative cells are acquired with the mother’s consent and cause no harm or side effects to the mother or child.
These cells are essential to healing because they are more youthful than the ones we have as adults. As we age, our bodies have a difficult time healing on their own because our cells become too mature, and their ability to heal is greatly reduced.
The younger cells are more successful in healing when introduced to an injured area. This treatment process is less invasive than surgery and has less side effects than taking medication.
Another treatment option to consider is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. In this process, your own blood and platelets are used for your own personal treatment, making it natural and encompassing the body’s innate healing properties.
This is also a non-invasive procedure that is done on the same day as your doctor’s visit. A vial of blood is drawn, and the platelets are sorted from the red blood cells and extracted. The platelets are put into a centrifuge to create a highly concentrated mixture and then re-injected into a numbed area that is injured or degraded. This treatment has proven to be highly effective because platelets are essential to healing wounds or other injuries, and a highly concentrated number of platelets aides in a faster healing process. Because PRP injections use components from your own body, there are many benefits, including minimal to no side effects or negative reactions.
