Chronic pain can be an absolute drain on your life, and make it very difficult to perform even simple, everyday tasks. It can make it difficult to do anything that used to bring you joy, and it can seem never-ending to people who deal with it every single day. Regenerative medicine brings hope that new groundbreaking treatments can assist those dealing with chronic pain management with some relief. And it’s only getting better and more affordable with time!
Prolotherapy for Chronic Pain
Prolotherapy is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free and affordable treatment for people dealing with chronic pain requiring medication, cortisone, other steroid shots, or even surgery. It is meant for people who deal with joint pain caused by a number of factors including aging, trauma, sports injuries, or even just everyday wear and tear. Prolotherapy involves the injection of an irritant solution into ligaments and tendons supporting the painful joints. The irritant causes controlled inflammation which is meant to increase blood supply and flow of nutrients, growth factors, and mediators into the affected area, allowing the tissue to stimulate self-reparation. The strengthening of the tissues helps to relieve pain.
Prolozone Therapy for Pain Management
Prolozone therapy is another natural regenerative therapy that can also be used for joint pain or injury. Prolozone therapy involves injecting a solution of vitamins and minerals into the affected area, followed by injecting ozone into the same area which spreads the solution further than the first injection could, so that it covers all the muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and tissues surrounding and attached to it, and aiding in the overall healing process. The combination of the injections can actually regrow or make new tissue! Which not only makes prolozone therapy amazing for pain management but can also help you avoid surgery.
Stem Cell Therapy for Pain
Stem cell therapy involves isolating stem cells from one location of the body, like fat tissue or bone marrow, and relocating them to an area of disease, injury, or inflammation to employ the body’s own healing potential and maintain and repair tissue. Stem cells are uniquely suited for this task as they can form different types of tissue that the body needs including bone, cartilage, muscle, etc. They are also naturally anti-inflammatory which can help with pain management and assist the body in repairing itself from injury or inflammation. Stem cell therapy has been known to help treat sports injuries, arthritis, and even disorders such as multiple sclerosis.
