Are You Ready to Rejuvenate Your Health? This New Innovative Treatment May Surprise You

Mar 22, 2022

Are you living every day with joint or back pain that’s affecting your life? Maybe you can’t do the things you used to, like exercise or play with your grandkids. Does even going for a walk feel like climbing Mt. Everest?

Perhaps you’ve lost work time and wages because of sick days, either because you didn’t feel well enough to go in or you spent hours at the doctor’s office trying to get better.

You don’t have to live with pain and immobility or let them ruin your life. There’s a new treatment available today that can rejuvenate your health and help you feel like yourself again. It doesn’t involve surgery or any extended downtime. Keep reading to learn what might just be the best-kept secret for back pain, arthritis, sports injuries, and inflammatory conditions like fibromyalgia.

Millions Suffering From Joint Pain Are Turning to Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a new discipline that can help people when other treatments for pain have failed or aren’t an option. And even better, it’s an outpatient modality, meaning you don’t have to stay overnight in the hospital.

You can receive regenerative medicine treatments at places like Regenerative Wellness Clinic. We often integrate it with other therapies as part of a functional medicine approach. Functional medicine looks at your whole body at once, rather than just one part at a time. Treating your pain issues, gut health, nutrition, and hormones simultaneously with a personalized plan gives you better results than if you treat them separately.

How does regenerative medicine work? Stem cell or regenerative nanoparticles called exosomes, can be derived from umbilical cords or other birth tissue. These are injected into inflamed or damaged parts of the body, mainly where blood flow is limited, like in the discs of the spine or joints. They help jump-start the healing process and keep it going by self-renewing to create new healing cells to relieve pain and improve mobility.

Regenerative medicine is anti-inflammatory, and the effects can last for months while your body recovers from the inflammatory consequences of aging. Stem cells and exosomes slow the loss of muscle tissue, even reversing the process with the blood components that help form more muscle tissue. In addition, your joints build up new cartilage, which is part of the body’s natural lubricating system and keeps you moving freely and without stiffness or pain.

While it may not be covered yet by most health insurance plans, regenerative medicine can be less expensive overall than other options, especially if you’re considering surgery or spending a fortune on treatments that don’t work.

The Best Applications for Regenerative Medicine Treatments

One of the most common uses for regenerative medicine is degenerative disc disease (DDD). This is when the discs that serve as shock absorber pads between the vertebrae of your spinal column wear out, losing volume and elasticity. As a result, you can wind up with chronic back pain, stiffness, and back instability. Degenerative disc disease is a top cause of back pain, along with herniated (bulging) or ruptured discs.

A number of factors can cause these long-term back issues. In addition to aging, sports injuries, arthritis, and manual labor that involves lifting and twisting are some of the most frequent contributors. So what are the symptoms of DDD?

  • Pain that gets worse when you sit, bend forward, or twist but gets better when you walk or run

  • Discomfort that comes and goes, often forcing you to lie down or sit in a different position to achieve relief

  • Pain that radiates down the thighs, across the buttocks, or along the neck

  • Numbness or tingling in your hands and feet

  • Weakness in the legs or even a dropped foot

  • Bowel and bladder problems caused by injury to the nerve root

Because regenerative medicine can help replace damaged cells and reach places where circulation is minimal, it’s also used to treat other problems of the bones, joints, and connective tissue. Some common applications include:

  • Partial rotator cuff tears

  • Tears of the meniscus in the knee

  • Knee sprains and instability

  • Patellar tendinosis and patellofemoral syndrome

  • Partial muscle tears

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendinosis

  • Ankle sprains

  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow

  • Patellar and quadriceps tendon tears

  • Hip and hamstring strains

  • Sports hernias

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Osteoarthritis

Like DDD and herniated discs, these injuries and conditions typically result in chronic pain that negatively impacts people’s lives and livelihoods.

Regenerative medicine is one of the most widely studied topics right now because it’s considered relatively safe and minimally invasive and because its potential uses are so far-reaching. Key areas of study include treatments for Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, kidney disease, burns, and cancer. For example, bone marrow transplants have been used for years to treat blood cancers. Still, it is believed that many other types of cancer will eventually be treated with regenerative medicine too.

The potential of exosomes is enormous. It is a potent regenerative agent capable of reversing the consequences of aging, reducing inflammation, improving chronic diseases, suppressing tumors, developing new bone, cartilage and muscle, and overall improving quality of life.

How Do You Know if You Might Be a Candidate for Regenerative Medicine?

As well as experiencing the chronic back pain symptoms listed above or having other musculoskeletal problems that respond to this treatment, there are different ways to tell if regenerative medicine might be the right next step for you. For example, you probably have not seen relief from conservative measures, like over-the-counter pain medications. Or you aren’t able to take those medications in the first place.

Other treatments, such as massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, or cortisone injections, haven’t worked either. You may have given up your favorite activities and modified your lifestyle to no avail. Your doctor may have recommended surgery, which should be a last resort solution, or surgery isn’t an option for you.

At Regenerative Wellness Clinic, we use a combination of your medical history, physical exam, and imaging to determine if regenerative medicine is appropriate for you. All it takes is an initial consultation to start your journey to being free of pain and able to rejoin life again.
