Pain Management vs. Pain Relief: Getting to the Root of the Problem
The topic of reducing pain can often be broken down into two categories, which are pain relief and pain management. As the name suggests, pain management refers to managing pain so you can carry on with your daily routine. Typically, this is accomplished with an unending cycle of pain medication. The pain is never eliminated or resolved, it is just numbed temporarily until the medication wears off and the cycle continues. This is a classic example of addressing the symptom instead of the cause.
With pain relief, the underlying cause of the pain is targeted, which inadvertently resolves the symptom, which is your pain. This is the only way to genuinely get rid of the pain you’re experiencing on a long-term basis, and the concept is at the core of regenerative medicine. Once the root cause has been resolved, the by-product of pain will also be removed.
Non-Surgical Solutions for Long Lasting Pain Relief
Regenerative treatments are both effective, non-surgical pain relief treatments.
Some of the painful conditions we can help alleviate with regenerative medicine include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- and more
Regenerative Medicine is a field of innovative biological science that focuses on repairing damage to the body by encouraging natural cell regeneration. Body tissues can be damaged in several ways, often due to injury, but also because of illness or the natural aging process. Regenerative therapies are designed to reverse this damage by stimulating your body’s inherent healing power. Our clinic offers 2 types of regenerative treatments; cell therapy and platelet rich plasma injections.
Cell Therapy is highly effective at relieving pain. When mesenchymal cells are injected into your injured tissue, their incredible regenerative power immediately begins to repair the damage. It is a minimally invasive procedure that many patients opt for as a safe alternative to surgery or drugs.
The procedure involves a simple injection and does not involve any downtime after treatment. The treatment provides long-lasting relief from both acute and chronic pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma injections are made from your own blood after a sample is spun in a centrifuge. During this process, the platelets and red blood cells separate, leaving highly concentrated platelets that have healing properties. Each of these regenerative treatments helps your body’s own healing mechanism resolve the underlying cause of your pain.
