Regenerative Cellular Treatments for Pain Management
What is the difference between platelet rich plasma, or PRP injections, and regenerative cell therapy? Both can be administered non-invasively, and both boost your body’s natural healing ability so you can get back to the life you love. The procedures, however, are quite different from one another.
Regenerative cell therapy is the practice of injecting cellular tissue into an area that needs rejuvenation.
This treatment can be performed on many types of pain, including:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Joint pain
- Neck pain
- Hip pain
The advantages of cellular treatments: their unique capability of adapting to any area of your body, and both replicating and transforming into whatever type of cell the body needs most. For these reasons, they can be used in areas that are having a tough time healing naturally. They are a minimally invasive procedure that allows your body’s natural healing process to be boosted by these young, healthy and highly versatile cells.
The regenerative cell therapy we use in non-surgical pain management are from mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s jelly. These cells are from healthy donors, and offer much higher efficacy than using stem cells from the adult patient’s own body. The donor cells are much more potent, and the harvesting process is not painful for either the donor or the recipient. When these cells enter the body, they begin adapting to their new environment on an immediate basis, and the regeneration process begins.
While still relatively painless, PRP injections are always derived from the patient’s own blood. A sample is drawn, then spun rapidly in order to extract the platelets from the other cells in the blood. The growth factor-rich serum is then injected into the affected site, and the platelets get to work to begin aiding the healing process. The damaged tissue gets healed faster with the additional plasma, and your body’s healing process is enhanced.
Regenerative cellular treatments aren’t the only non-surgical pain management options – there is also chiropractic care. Oftentimes, we find that a combination of these treatments allows our patients to experience immense relief and get back to their normal lives quickly.
Each treatment plan we create is completely customized to the patient and their body, pain and goals. To find out which of these options can help you get out of pain (and stay out of the operating room), contact our staff today to set up your initial consultation.
