If you have chronic pain, it can be difficult to get through even the simplest tasks during the day. Many people turn to narcotic pain medications to curb the pain. However, these come with many side effects and possible addictions without curing the problem. A better solution is to look to regenerative medicine for help. Regenerative medicine targets the body’s innate ability to heal and defend itself. This type of medicine takes what your body already has—such as stem cells—and uses them to help the body recover from injury, disease and chronic pain. Stem cell therapy is therapeutic and soothing to the site where stem cells are injected. It can help curb your chronic pain and heal the part of your body that is injured. Find out what regenerative medicine can do for you today!

 

Seeking Natural Healing Solutions for Pain

When you are in chronic pain, all you want is for the pain to stop. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, chronic pain affects more people than cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Around 76 million Americans suffer from chronic pain at some point or another that lasts for more than 24 hours. That pain can lead to disability, the inability to work and to even get everyday tasks done. When people are in pain, they seek out whatever treatments can stop the pain.

 

This leads many people to seek out narcotic pain medications. However, these heavy painkillers are shown to lead to addiction in millions of people—even with just the first use! This is because narcotics and opioids chemically react with the receptors on your nerve cells in your nervous system that communicate with your brain. You can have a chemical change in your brain with the first use. Up to 36 million people abuse painkillers worldwide because of addiction to them. You take that risk of addiction every time you take a pill. Seeking out a natural, effective solution for chronic pain that is better for your health and for your brain. Painkillers can mask pain for a certain amount of time, but they do nothing to actually cure your problem. As your body is able to heal its wounds when you are injured, your body is also able to naturally cure your chronic pain as well. Regenerative medicine can help.

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a practice or helping regenerate or replace tissues and cells in the body to help restore normal function. There are only a few types of regenerative medicine treatments. Most have to do with stem cells and helping the body to use those stem cells to heal. You have countless stem cells in your body. This is a special type of cell that is able to turn into any other type of cell, except those that support a fetus. When you are injured, blood platelets rush to the site of injury to clot a wound. That is how you get a scab. However, you have stem cells in your body that lie dormant until your body sends out signals that it needs help repairing itself.

 

Stem cells follow your blood platelets to the site of your injury and get to work to rebuild your tissues and cells in that area. If you have a cut on your skin, stem cells transform into skin cells and start to rebuild the area. Without stem cells, your body could clot, but it couldn’t heal itself. However, you are only born with a certain amount of stem cells, and the amount you have diminishes as you age. With stem cell therapy (a type of regenerative medicine), we can inject extra stem cells into the site of an injury or the site of your chronic pain.

 

Stem Cells Can Help Your Chronic Pain

Thousands of patients receive stem cell injections and benefit greatly from them. From more than 100,000 patients who have received stem cell injections, there have been no reported negative side effects. Stem cell injections are naturally anti-inflammatory in nature. This is highly appealing to our patients with degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis. While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, stem cells actually restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. Injections can diminish chronic pain arthritis patients feel. This type of therapy is an exciting treatment for chronic diseases and conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, macular degeneration and more. If you suffer from these and other chronic conditions, or simply chronic pain and aches, stem cell therapy can benefit you!
