How Regenerative Medicine is Revolutionizing Pain Management

Healing naturally is not just an ideal, it’s a possibility. For our team at 180 Health helping you heal naturally is our mission. Our team, led by the talented and caring can help you recover from a variety of soft tissue injuries associated with accidents and sports. We also assist with the physiological effects of certain chronic conditions. Our goal is to provide long-lasting and natural pain management, and regenerative medicine, alone or combined with other therapies, is how we help you.

We are far from the only practice that believes in, practices, and endorses this type of treatment for chronic conditions and pain. Did you know that blood transfusions are the earliest type of regenerative medicine? Bone marrow transplants and skin grafting are also types of regenerative medical therapy that change lives every day. Not only can mesenchymal stem cells provide relief from pain, research suggests that they can also be engineered to perform other healing functions for different parts of your body. 

What is regenerative medicine? 

Regenerative medicine is a constantly evolving field that utilizes the most natural therapy to heal organs, soft tissues, and bone: human cells. At its simplest, it can be defined as the process of replacing or "regenerating" cells, tissues, or organs to restore or establish their normal function.  Drug-free and non-surgical, regenerative medicine has been used to provide relief to people living with a variety of different conditions, including torn ligaments and tendons, painful inflammation, and joint discomfort associated with arthritis.

How is a regenerative medical procedure performed? 

The healing process starts with cells collected from umbilical cords, the nutrient super-highway for human development. The cells are gently processed and frozen for use in patients whose own organs or soft tissues are injured or have been affected by disease. We then inject these cells directly into the sites where you’re experiencing pain. Besides being the most natural form of healing available, the overall point of using regenerative medicine is that it can treat the source of any chronic or painful problem that you have, instead of just treating the symptoms. 

Why use regenerative medicine? 

How would you like to lessen the amount of medication you need to take for pain or to manage a condition? With our team at 180 Health, this could be your future. While regenerative medicine hasn’t yet reached a point that pervasive illnesses like diabetes can be cured, the therapy has shown some results, and it offers a promising future for more. 

Choosing this innovative treatment regimen means that certain conditions, like cartilage damage, strains, and sprains, can be healed without the risks that come with invasive surgery and without taking loads of pharmaceuticals. This can also have a positive impact on organs like your liver and kidneys, which process medications and can be sensitive to certain types and to large amounts.
