Struggling with chronic pain can take a toll on your enjoyment of life. This pain may come from injured joints, from chronic issues, from osteoarthritis or other sources. In many cases, patients are told that the way to rectify such pains and aches is through invasive treatment methods. But, what if there was another way? A better way?
Regenerative medicine solutions offer you the chance at renewed physical strength and a pain-free life without the risks and difficulties associated with invasive procedures. Instead of only treating your symptoms, we will help you address the underlying causes of your pain and fix them.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a branch of functional medicine that focuses on using your body’s tissues – including blood platelets, adipose (fat) and stem cells – to heal damage and restore health. The Mayo Clinic summarizes it well: regenerative medicine is useful for rejuvenation, replacement, and regeneration.
Using cutting-edge technology, we will harvest these cells and products from your body, then inject them back into you to promote healing. This non-surgical approach can help with a wide variety of diseases, injuries, and pain.
The goal of regenerative medicine is to speed up and strengthen your body’s natural ability to heal itself without subjecting you to invasive procedures or surgery. Since it is part of Functional Medicine, regenerative medicine at Rejuv Medical Southwest will be patient-focused, with our team working with you to put your health and wholeness first. We want to help you take charge of your health and feel empowered to go on to a full life.
What Can Regenerative Medicine Treat?
So, how can regenerative medicine help you? You might be wondering what things regenerative medicine can treat and whether it’s a good fit for you. About 90 percent of chronic pain and injuries can be treated without the typical invasive procedures, so there is a good chance that your condition is treatable with regenerative medicine.
First of all, we’d like to lay one fear to rest. Rejuv Medical Southwest is dedicated to making our services affordable and cost-effective. If you are suffering from pain, please don’t let the fear of a high cost keep you from contacting us. At the very least, we can provide you with an estimate for your treatment. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the conditions that regenerative medicine can successfully treat.
There are so many sports injuries possible – from concussions to torn ligaments to broken bones and sprains. regenerative medicine treatment can help restore cartilage, heal tendons and torn ligaments.
The underlying cause of osteoarthritis pain is the development of bone spurs due to cartilage in the joints being worn down. Regenerative medicine can replace and repair cartilage, alleviating the pain of bone-on-bone.
Joint Overuse Injuries
Injuries like tendonitis, stress fractures, and plantar fasciitis are painful and lingering. Regenerative medicine can help repair the underlying causes of these and other issues caused by overuse of joints.
While osteoarthritis pain is due to eroded cartilage, the pain of rheumatoid arthritis comes from inflammation in the joint linings. Regenerative medicine can alleviate the inflammation, giving you back your ability to move without great pain.
Back and Spine Pain
If you have inflamed spinal discs, back injuries or other causes of back and spinal pain, regenerative medicine can help you. Inflammation, damaged cartilage and more can be reduced and restored!
Neck Pain and Headaches
Just like the spine, your neck is a joint and prone to all the same issues of inflammation and worn-down cartilage. Headaches can be caused by neck problems or by other issues – many of which can be solved with regenerative medicine techniques.
Chronic Pain and Fatigue
Chronic pain and fatigue is an awful thing to experience. Let regenerative medicine help rejuvenate and revitalize you. Instead of just treating your symptoms, we’ll help you address the underlying cause and help your body heal.
What Should You Expect?
Our regenerative medicine treatment is comprehensive, working with you from the beginning. We’ll schedule a full consultation and screening where we’ll ask questions and test your motion to see how advanced your issue is. We’ll offer nutritional changes to help reduce inflammation and promote healing. We will also give you an exercise and fitness regime to follow, help you coordinate physical rehabilitation and more. We offer ongoing education and counseling to help you prevent re-injury after your regenerative medicine treatment.
We want to partner with you to make you healthy and whole. Please, don’t continue suffering from pain or aches. Regenerative medicine is a viable, healthy and cost-effective option for anyone struggling with joint pain or injuries.
