Millions of people in Florida deal with chronic pain daily. Many try over the counter medications that temporarily address symptoms while the underlying cause continues to fester. Regenerative medicine represents healthcare of the future with a shift towards the correction of underlying diseases by utilizing innate healing systems of the body. Regenerative medicine, as offered by our medical clinic in Tampa, Florida, works by harnessing the power of stem cells to stimulate cell activation, tissue regeneration, and healing.
Regenerative medicine includes a range of therapies aimed at treating musculoskeletal disorders by:
- Boosting your body's natural ability to self-heal
- Replacing injured or degenerated tissue
- Regenerating specific types of cells to restore tissue and organ function
Regenerative medicine is a viable non-surgical solution to manage pain while avoiding or delaying expensive and complicated surgeries and habit-forming medications. Regenerative therapies such as treatments containing stem cells and growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy have been proven effective in pain reduction and improving your function, and by extension, quality of life.
Regenerative Medicine for Pain Relief
Within the sphere of regenerative medicine is an emerging cellular therapy for natural pain relief which utilizes human mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s jelly found in birth tissue. Treatments containing stem 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 stem cells can enhance migration & proliferation of your body’s stem cells when injected into areas targeted for pain relief. This accelerates the repair or replacement of damaged human tissues without surgery or its associated complications. By implanting bioactive materials with therapeutic properties, your body regains a remarkable regenerative capacity, which declines as you age or because of tissue damage and disease.
Overuse and degenerative diseases are common but often challenging to treat. As you age, tissue such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments wear away wreaking havoc on your joints. The resulting chronic pain previously had a surgical option, but now platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) provides a safe non-invasive alternative. Abundant in bioactive proteins and other properties that stimulate cellular growth, known as growth factors, PRP uses biologic elements found in your blood to promote tissue repair.
Here's how it works. Plasma, the liquid part of your blood, carries red and white blood cell proteins, glucose, nutrients, and antibodies and platelets. Platelets secrete the growth factors involved in cell division, tissue regeneration, and healing. PRP injections provide a concentrated dosage of the growth factors. The healing solution is made by isolating and concentrating growth factor-rich blood platelets and injecting the therapeutic serum into your site of pain or injury.
Regenerative therapies are effectively being used to treat a full spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- ACL and MCL tears
- Neuropathy and more
