If you are unfamiliar with regenerative medicine, you may be wondering what results you can expect from this non-surgical treatment. Regenerative medicine is an all-natural treatment that uses your body’s own healing abilities to regenerate tissue and bring long-lasting relief. It offers a noninvasive alternative to surgery and addictive medications in order to provide pain relief at the source. Two effective regenerative medicine treatments are cellular therapy, and platelet-rich plasma. These treatments get to the root of your pain rather than just mask the symptoms.
How Does Regenerative Cellular Therapy Work?
Regenerative cellular therapy utilizes injections of mesenchymal cells which direct healing agents right into the source of your pain, whether it is in the knee, elbow, joint, or shoulder.
These treatments utilizing regenerative cells stand out for several reasons:
- The cells used in these treatments are rich in healing agents, like cytokines, growth factors, proteins, collagen, and peptides.
- Regenerative cell therapy is obtained through painless and noninvasive means. Umbilical cord tissue, normally discarded after birth, instead offers people a rich source of natural pain relief.
- Brand new mesenchymal cells are far more abundant in healing components than the cells that are found in older patients.
- The cells are too young to have an immune system, so there is little to no risk of rejection when injected into an area of need.
Regenerative mesenchymal cells derived from Wharton’s jelly, a substance found abundantly in umbilical tissue, are what are used in these cellular treatments. As such, it contains the youngest regenerative cells available. Harvested from specially selected umbilical tissue donated by pre-screened, healthy mothers, they are available to doctors through carefully regulated tissue banks, and are utilized to help people find lasting relief.
How is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Used to Relieve Pain?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is injected into the source of your pain to bring about relief, as in regenerative cellular therapy. The difference is that PRP is created from a sample of your own blood rather than donated cells. This sample of blood is spun in a centrifuge and developed into a rich, golden solution that is reinjected back into your body at an area of need.
As soon as the healing platelets within the PRP are introduced to an area of need, they get to work reviving and renewing damaged tissue, bringing you healing at the source of your pain.
Because the sample is created from your own blood, there is no risk of rejection, making it an effective method of treatment for pain relief.
Natural Pain Relief with Regenerative Medicine
The natural pain relief results you can expect from regenerative medicine usually occur rather quickly. It may take one or a few treatments for your damaged tissue to be fully restored, but these all-natural treatments are same-day, in and out, with little to no discomfort, no drugs or surgery, and no downtime after the procedure.
Regenerative cellular therapy and PRP have shown to be highly successful with neck and back pain, shoulder and rotator cuff injuries, hip and knee pain, foot issues, and much more.
