How Is Pain Relief Different Than Pain Management?
When you experience pain in any part of your body, it is merely a symptom of a deeper issue. As an example, sciatica will cause a great deal of pain, but that pain is just a by-product of the sciatic nerve being compressed or irritated. The same is true of any injury or degenerative condition in your body.
When this occurs, conventional medicine will often get you on a pain management program that includes medication to cover up or mask the pain.
You may experience relief from the discomfort, but as soon as the medication wears off the pain returns until another round of medication is administered. The main difference between pain relief and pain management is that pain relief treats the underlying cause of pain and pain management treats the symptom. It is only when you address and treat the root cause of the pain that you will experience long-term pain relief.
Regenerative medicine is effective for alleviating many painful conditions, including :
- Elbow pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- And more
Pain Relief through Regenerative Medicine
The two types of regenerative medicine we use are Wharton’s Jelly derived regenerative cells and platelet-rich plasma. Wharton’s Jelly is a substance found in the umbilical cords of newborns, and we collect these cells from donated cords after a healthy cesarean birth. The cords are donated by the mother, who is carefully screened during her pregnancy and the tissue collection poses no harm to the mother or the baby.
The main reason we prefer these cells for treatment instead of your own cells is their youth. The fact that they are so young means they have a full complement of cytokines, growth factors, mesenchymal cells, collagens, proteins, peptides and exosomes that aid in fast and efficient healing.
These elements tend to decline as our cells age, which is why we heal more slowly as we get older. When the regenerative cells are injected into your damaged tissue for pain relief, they quickly get to work repairing and rejuvenating tissue and encouraging your own cells to heal.
A platelet-rich plasma injection, or PRP, is created after a small sample of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge. As it spins at high speed, the plasma and platelets separate, and it is the highly concentrated platelets that are used for the injections. PRP injections promote important aspects of wound healing such as proliferation, remodeling and inflammation.
Alternative All-Natural Solutions for Pain Relief
Chiropractic care and MLS Laser therapy have also proved successful alternative methods of treatments for pain relief. Chiropractic care applies a hands-on approach to bring the body back into alignment and improve movement and range of motion. This all-natural method of treatment focuses on healing acute and chronic conditions through chiropractic adjustments in order to provide pain relief at the source, affecting the entirety of the body's function and overall health.
MLS laser therapy uses light energy to reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue. This improves the systems throughout the body, and treats a number of painful conditions, bringing long-term relief to the root of your pain.
