Joint pain affects millions of people each year, and honestly, it is to be expected as we get older. If you are or a loved one has been suffering from severe joint pain, you know just how limiting it can be. Everyday activities and movements can be painful and challenging, but joint pain doesn’t have to be something that you learn to live or that keeps you from enjoying an active lifestyle. Regenerative medicine offers patients a natural way to relieve joint pain and inflammation without risky or invasive procedures or the need for medications.
While traditional medicine typically treats the symptoms, which, when referring to joint inflammation is pain, regenerative therapies go directly to the source of the pain or the injury allowing for the body to actually heal and repair itself as opposed to simply masking the pain, which can be the result of many causes such as:
- Sport-related injuries
- Automobile accidents
- Strains or sprains
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy is highly effective for reducing inflammation in the body and providing long-lasting pain relief. Our body’s have an innate ability to heal themselves quickly through tissue regeneration. Unfortunately, as we age, this process begins to slow down. Because of this, our cell therapy uses tissue collected from the umbilical cords following scheduled C-sections. There is a rigorous pre-screening process to ensure the tissue’s quality before it is collected and is ethically sourced from mothers who wish to donate. This tissue is young and healthy, which means it is rich in growth factors, proteins, amino acids, cytokines, and exosomes, which encourage the body to repair and restore itself quickly when injected into the damaged area.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is another form of regenerative therapy that gives patients suffering from joint pain and inflammation, long-term relief using their own blood to restore the area. This is a simple process in which a small blood sample is taken during your appointment. A machine, called a centrifuge, is used to separate the plasma and the platelets, leaving us with a highly concentrated liquid rich in platelets containing healing properties. Once the plasma is collected, it is injected into the area where the pain is coming from. This jump-starts the repair and restoration process in the body, immediately attacking the inflammation. Once the inflammation is reduced, the pain will subside.
