Living with joint pain can be excruciating and rob you of engaging in the simplest of daily activities. Whether it is your knee, hip, shoulder, or other joints, chronic inflammation and tissue damage can leave you practically immobilized from the pain. Many joint pain treatments exist, but only a few outside of costly and habit-forming pain medication invasive surgery offer true alternative solutions.
Medication certainly can block the pain that you feel, but the tissue damage that causes the pain symptom isn’t addressed, it’s just masked. Exercise and healthy eating can reduce the strain on joints. It is important to exercise and have healthy eating habits, and any treatment program for joint pain will advocate for both approaches. Still, true relief can only come from repairing the damaged tissue itself, and that is where cellular treatment is more effective.
Regenerative Treatments to Relieve Joint Pain
Are there natural approaches to treating joint pain that do not involve invasive surgery? Regenerative medicine offers some answers. Through regenerative medicine and cellular therapy, the doctor can renew damaged tissue and end the causes of the pain at their source. One of the most exciting innovations of the last decade is using regenerative cells to address joint pain and tissue damage.
The idea behind using cells to heal your body is simple. Using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or mesenchymal cells (MSCs) derived from the Wharton’s jelly, doctors can deliver concentrated amounts of these cells to target parts of your body requiring healing. The cytokines, growth factors, essential proteins, and amino acids found in these cells are all-natural means of healing.
Both PRP and MSC therapies utilize cells that function to regenerate and renew both themselves and surrounding cells. The origin of the cells is different, however. Mesenchymal cells derived from Wharton’s jelly come from outside the patient but are from verified, safe donors. The cells used in PRP therapy come from the patient’s own body by gathering plasma and spinning it in a centrifuge to get a concentrated solution of cells that are reinjected into the body.
Both therapies inject these regenerative cells in targeted locations to address common problems associated with joint pain, including back, neck, and knee pain. Joint pain is typically associated with inflammation caused by tissue damage from disease, injury, or the process of wear and tear on the joints from use over time. Regenerative medicine attacks the pain at the root cause, rather than simply addressing or masking symptoms. Since the tissue itself is restored naturally, it no longer sends the inflammatory pain messages to the brain, so the relief is real rather than temporarily provided.
If you are interested in proven all-natural treatments for joint pain relief that do not require long recovery time from invasive surgery, regenerative medicine therapies could well be the alternative treatment you have been seeking.
