Regenerative medicine has the amazing ability to repair damaged joints at the source in order to relieve pain. It primarily focuses on the regeneration of the body’s cells to help in restoring normal body function and repairing damaged tissue.
If you suffer from joint pain, you may experience trouble with everyday tasks, for example, walking, going up and down flights of stairs, or even opening a jar or bottle.It can be caused by many different factors, including:
- Chronic health issues
But you can find lasting relief from joint pain through regenerative medicine treatments.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a non-invasive method of treatment that helps to provide long lasting pain relief and to restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself. When an area of the body is damaged or injured, it is its own natural reaction to try to heal itself. This medical practice harnesses and enhances the body’s own healing mechanisms to regenerate and repair the area of need.
These treatments contain components that are able to assist in the regeneration and reconstruction process by distributing advancement factors and cytokines directly into the injured tissue. The objective of regenerative medicine is to treat painful conditions and injuries at the root of the issue. It is a great solution for not only joint pain, but other damaged tissues as well.
One of these regenerative medicine treatments is known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. This special therapy is loaded with healing factors, and can benefit countless different types of conditions or trauma in the body. To prepare a PRP injection, a small sample of the patient’s own blood is taken and placed into a medical machine known as a centrifuge, where it is then spun to separate and concrete the healing platelets within the sample.
Platelets hold an imperative position in the body’s natural capability to regenerate and reconstruct. After the desired site of the injured area is injected with the platelets, the body will then release a chemical message straight to the available platelets, ordering them to travel to the injured area, where they will then engage in defending the area, triggering the healing process and protecting the tissue against future harm.
Platelets hold an imperative position in the body’s natural capability to regenerate and reconstruct. After the desired site of the injured area is injected with the platelets, they go right to work boosting your body’s naturally occuring healing properties in order to provide joint pain relief at the root of your pain.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Another alternative approach to joint pain relief is regenerative cell therapy. This specific therapy operates through the use of healing Mesenchymal cells that are acquired from the Wharton’s jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue.
The healing cells are injected into the damaged or injured area, resulting in tissue regeneration and following with pain relief. These cells contain healing compounds that include:
- Growth factors
This therapy works quickly and powerfully to help regenerate injured or damaged tissue and bring you relief right at the source of your pain.
