Regenerative cellular treatments can be a beneficial form of pain relief. Results vary from patient to patient but are promising and have shown to relieve pain caused by various conditions such as knee pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, joint pain and hip pain.
Regenerative cellular therapy focuses on healing the damaged cells in your body instead of just masking the pain. Permanent restoration of the damaged cells is entirely possible. The type of regenerative cells used are called mesenchymal cells that come from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical allographs.
These young cells have the ability to differentiate into cells needed for healing and are preferred because they have not yet been damaged by the aging process. This natural form of pain relief can provide you with effective, long-lasting relief by injecting the regenerative cells into the injured tissue.
What is Regenerative Cell Therapy?
Regenerative cellular therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that is minimally invasive. Cellular therapy for the knees can decrease inflammation and can slow damage caused by knee arthritis. Regenerative cell therapy for pain relief is an alternative to surgery for such common conditions as knee tendon and ligament injuries, damaged cartilage and bone spurs, muscular tears, bone issues, plantar fasciitis, neuropathy and shoulder pain.
Injecting regenerative cells into your joints helps restore them by switching on the body’s ability to self-heal.
Regenerative medicine for back pain relief provides your back with the healing boost it needs. Once injected, the cells will adapt and develop into the tissue cells needed to heal your back, including bone, muscle, cartilage and nerve cells. As the cellular therapy starts to work you will have restored function in your back along with back pain relief.
Natural Pain Relief
Another form of natural pain relief that our doctors perform comes from platelet-rich plasma or PRP. To prepare PRP, a small amount of your blood is taken and placed into a special medical device to separate and concentrate your blood platelets. Platelet-rich plasma injections are non-surgical procedures, using components naturally occurring in your blood to stimulate healing.
Plasma, the liquid portion of your blood, is composed of water and proteins. It allows your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate throughout your body. Platelets are blood cells that cause blood clotting and are also responsible for other healing functions. Platelet activation plays a crucial role in your body's natural healing process.
Injections of PRP contain your blood plasma mixed with your concentrated platelets. This mixture is rich in growth factors and other therapeutic agents vital to initiating and accelerating tissue repair and regeneration. Growth factors kick-start connective tissue healing, including regeneration and repair of bones, tendons and ligaments.
The treatment is performed in an outpatient procedure and is relatively short, allowing you to go about your regular routine the same day. This is a natural alternative to surgery or medication worth exploring if you are living with pain. Contact our office for a complimentary consultation on regenerative medicine for pain relief.
