Regenerative Medicine Offers All-Natural Pain Relief

You may think it sounds too good to be true, but regenerative medicine can alleviate pain and may even prevent the need for surgery. In fact, a 2018 study found that regenerative medicine therapies can even help alleviate back pain. 

At HealthCare Partners Family Medicine, in The Villages, Florida, Nelson Kraucak, MD, FAAP, and our team are proud to offer you a holistic approach to health care. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide on how regenerative medicine is your best bet for all-natural pain relief. 

How regenerative medicine works

Regenerative medicine relies on the simple fact that our bodies naturally heal themselves using a range of special cells, such as platelets and mesenchymal stem cells, which are found all over the body.  

In an injury, these cells rush to your damaged tissues to begin the natural healing process. Platelets produce growth factors, which are proteins that initiate the healing process. Mesenchymal stem cells work to regrow new tissue. 

In regenerative medicine, we use platelets that are extracted from a sample of your blood and use mesenchymal stem cells that are given by approved donors. We then inject these cells into the areas where you experience persistent chronic pain.  

Your best option for pain relief

When it comes to pain relief, your options for nonsurgical treatments are pretty limited. Current treatment options, such as cortisone injections or prescription pain pills, only mask symptoms or alter the way your body registers pain. 

With regenerative medicine, we can actually treat the source of your pain by spurring healing in the injured area, thus helping to lessen or completely eliminate the pain. Injected mesenchymal stem cells can actually repair and replace the damaged tissues that are causing you pain. Injected platelets from your blood can help regulate inflammation, activate stem cells, and create a cell matrix that helps support the growth of new cells.    

Regenerative medicine is also great because it promotes healing in tissues that are normally slow to heal. Because we can inject the platelets and stem cell solutions directly into injured areas, we can provide pain relief to areas that may not receive enough blood flow.

You don’t have to suffer through debilitating pain anymore, and you may not need to turn to surgery either. With regenerative medicine, you can find lasting pain relief by using your body’s own natural healing properties.
