You’ve likely heard about the impressive results about how regenerative medicine works to relieve pain and joint problems. Here’s how this new form of personalized medicine works, and how it can help you treat your pain condition naturally.
As the name implies, regenerative medicine is focused on regenerating - either repairing or rebuilding - tissue that has been overly damaged or lost through injury, illness, or wear and tear.
How does regenerative medicine work? It targets painful areas directly through injections of regenerative cellular treatments, including Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal cells and platelet rich plasma. These specialized cells are collected and processed to form a concentrated, powerful healing serum.
Injected directly into the diseased or injured area, these cells encourage the healing process right where it is needed most. Agents within this treatment, called cytokines, relay communication between the patient’s cells and spur them on to begin repairing tissue.
Regenerative cells begin replicating themselves, splitting over and over. From there, they turn into specialized tissue cells that your injured area needs; this could be cartilage, ligaments, tendons, muscles, or other types of cells.
Even though this is a natural process common to all people, the process slows down as you get older. Younger regenerative cells are highly potent and effective, and they are they are the type we prefer to use.
By using ethically sourced mesenchymal cells, you receive the benefits of young, vibrant regenerative agents designed to help your body recover, no matter the age of your own stem cells. The cellular treatments offered at the Pain and Wellness Institute are what we believe to be the most effective regenerative treatments available.
What are mesenchymal cells and where do they come from? Mesenchymal cells are a particularly effective type of regenerative agent found in the Wharton’s jelly within the human umbilical cord. These cells are donated by healthy mothers who have passed screenings and have successfully delivered via a planned C-section. Neither the mother nor the baby is affected by the harvesting procedure, as the tissue is otherwise discarded.
Regenerative cellular treatments can be used to achieve many results, and are often used as an all-natural alternative to surgery and pain medications.
Regenerative Medicine For Pain Relief
What kind of pain are you living with? We utilize regenerative medicine to aid patients who are dealing with:
- Joint pain
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Damaged bones or cartilage
- Hip pain
- Neck pain
- Neuropathy (numbness or tingling in hands and feet)
- Slipped discs
- Shoulder pain
- Plantar fasciitis
Most painful conditions stem from a lack of healthy tissue, damaged tissue, or inflammation. By flooding the target area with potent healing cells that begin replicating and turning into the specific cells needed by your body, you can start to feel pain relief faster than you thought possible.
