Chronic pain affects millions of people worldwide, and many individuals turn to over-the-counter medications to alleviate symptoms temporarily. However, these medications only provide short-term relief and do not address the underlying causes of the pain.
Regenerative medicine represents the future of healthcare, focusing on correcting underlying diseases by utilizing the body’s innate healing systems.
Harnessing the Power of Cellular Tissue
Regenerative medicine harnesses the power of cellular tissue to stimulate cell activation, tissue regeneration, and healing. By boosting the body’s natural ability to self-heal, replacing injured or degenerated tissue, and regenerating specific types of cells to restore tissue and organ function, regenerative medicine offers a non-surgical solution to manage pain while avoiding or delaying expensive and complicated surgeries and habit-forming medications.
Treating Musculoskeletal Disorders
Regenerative medicine offers a range of therapies aimed at treating musculoskeletal disorders, such as boosting the body’s natural ability to self-heal, replacing injured or degenerated tissue, and regenerating specific types of cells to restore tissue and organ function.
Regenerative therapies such as treatments containing human cellular tissue and growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy have been proven effective in pain reduction and improving function and quality of life.
Cellular Therapy for Natural Pain Relief
Within the sphere of regenerative medicine is an emerging cellular therapy for natural pain relief that utilizes human mesenchymal cells derived from Wharton’s jelly found in birth tissue.
Treatments containing cells and growth factors are being used to provide non-surgical pain relief for a variety of conditions, including neurological diseases and musculoskeletal conditions characterized by inflammation.
Injections containing mesenchymal cells can enhance the migration and proliferation of the body’s cells when injected into areas targeted for pain relief, accelerating the repair or replacement of damaged human tissues without surgery or its associated complications.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Pain Relief
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy provides a safe non-invasive alternative to surgical options for chronic pain resulting from overuse and degenerative diseases. PRP injections provide a concentrated dosage of growth factors that promote tissue repair.
The healing solution is made by isolating and concentrating growth factor-rich blood platelets and injecting the therapeutic serum into the site of pain or injury. The bioactive proteins and other properties abundant in PRP stimulate cellular growth and promote tissue regeneration.
PRP is an effective treatment for a full spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Plantar fasciitis
