Many joint pain treatments exist, but there are only a few that treat the underlying tissue damage that causes the pain. Physical therapy, exercise, chiropractic, and diet are all-natural approaches to healing.
Sometimes the body needs an extra boost. Regenerative medicine can lend this boost and assist in the body's natural healing mechanism, repairing underlying tissue damage that may be causing the joint pain.
Regenerative Medicine for Joint Pain Relief
Through regenerative medicine and cellular therapy, the doctor can introduce regenerative cells into your body in the areas of concern.
What is Regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is an umbrella term encompassing several procedures that use cells to repair damaged tissue in the patient's body.
At Pollack Health and Wellness, our doctors use two main types of regenerative medicine:
- Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)
- Regenerative Cellular tissue
The theory involved is simple - using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or Regenerative Cellular tissue derived from the Wharton's jelly in an umbilical cord, doctors can concentrate solutions of these cells and inject them into the affected joints.
The cytokines, growth factors, essential proteins, and amino acids found in these cells are an all-natural means of addressing your body's needs on a cellular level.
PRP vs. Regenerative Cellular Tissue
The two approaches work basically with the same basic principle: the therapy uses cells whose job it is to regenerate and renew both themselves and surrounding cells. The origin of the cells is different, however.
Regenerative Cellular tissue is derived from Wharton's jelly. Wharton's jelly comes from outside the patient and is obtained by verified, consenting, safe donors. This tissue is collected at the time of a scheduled birth. There is no damage done to either mother or baby when collecting this tissue.
PRP therapy cells come from the patient's own body. PRP is created through a process of drawing blood from the patient's body, isolating the platelets from the blood to get a concentrated solution of plasmas, and then reinjecting this solution back into the body.
Both of these therapies are an alternative to invasive surgery for many common problems, such as:
- Joint pain
- Knee pain
These regenerative treatments kickstart the body's process of healing and regrowth in targeted areas, allowing the patient's own body to correct the damage to the tissue causing the pain.
Joint pain is typically associated with inflammation caused by tissue damage from disease, injury, or the process of wear and tear on the joints from use over time. Regenerative medicine attacks the pain at the root cause, rather than simply addressing or masking symptoms.
While PRP is not used in cases of diagnosed Arthritis, Regenerative cellular tissue can be used for arthritis joint pain.If you are interested in proven all-natural treatments for joint pain relief that do not require long recovery time or invasive surgery, regenerative medicine could be the
alternative treatment you have been seeking.
