Whether you’re living with acute pain or chronic pain, your daily life can be largely affected by the presence of that pain. Even though there are traditional ways to manage pain, there has been a growing field of alternative techniques that not only work to manage pain but to target and mitigate the root cause of the pain as well. This cutting-edge branch of medicine is regenerative medicine.
Regenerative medicine has become an increasingly popular natural form of pain relief that works to use your own body’s healing properties to repair damaged cells and tissue. Regenerative medicine encompasses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, as well as regenerative cell therapy, which differs from stem cell therapy.
Conditions that regenerative medicine can treat include:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
- Numbness in hands and feet
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- Bone issues
How Does Regenerative Medicine Work?
As previously mentioned, regenerative medicine harnesses the human body’s own ability to repair and heal damaged areas of the body.
So what are regenerative cells? Regenerative cellular tissue are cells found within the body that are capable of differentiating into a variety of cell types, replacing injured tissue, and expediting the body’s healing process. These cells are designed to maintain, repair, and regenerate within the body, making regenerative medicine an effective method in reducing chronic pain from the root cause.
Regenerative medicine first starts with Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal cells, which are collected from donated umbilical cords after a healthy C-section birth. These cells contain vital growth factors, cytokines, collagens, proteins, and peptides, all components that work towards healing damaged tissues.
These highly productive mesenchymal regenerative cells are then injected into the affected area, where the cells will then work to repair and renew damaged cells and tissue.
Benefits of Regenerative Medicine as All-Natural Pain Relief
Regenerative medicine is highly popular because of the treatment’s low-risk factors. Because these young cells have yet to create their own immune system, there is a low chance of rejection.
Further, regenerative medicine does not use traditional painkillers, making the concern for dependency and habit-forming pharmaceutical options null and void. Regenerative medicine is regarded as a safe, effective option for combating a range of musculoskeletal disorders, auto-immune diseases, and orthopedic conditions that cause chronic pain.
