How Regenerative Medicine Can Heal Your Chronic Pain

How Regenerative Medicine Can Heal Your Chronic Pain

Regenerative medicine can provide pain relief by using your body’s own healing capabilities to improve musculoskeletal problems. Stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are new and innovative possibilities in treating chronic pain and other diseases.

Muscular pain, inflammation, and neuropathy can cause chronic pain that conventional pain relief treatments can’t fix. The good news? Pain management specialist Dr. Steven Grossinger can provide lasting relief using drug-free treatment options such as regenerative medicine.

Treating chronic pain with regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine uses your own body's repair mechanisms. Platelets and stem cells can regenerate body tissue so the cells of bones, cartilage, connective tissue, tendons, nerves, skin, and more renew regularly. Regenerative medicine also has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. 

Cell regeneration and anti-inflammatory efforts are normal body processes. Regenerative medicine supports these processes through the additional and targeted administration of platelets from your own blood and stem cells from adipose (body fat) tissue.

Stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections can heal many types of chronic pain.

Back pain

Low back pain is the most common health problem among older Americans, and it often becomes chronic, disabling pain. Modern regenerative medicine can address the symptoms that result from the wear-and-tear and inflammation brought on by aging.

Dr. Grossinger often uses regenerative medicine to help a patient with back pain avoid the need for surgery.

Knee pain

Chronic knee pain may be triggered by accidents, genetic factors, obesity, or aging. Knee pain can also cause you to walk or carry your weight incorrectly, which accelerates cartilage wear-and-tear.

Regenerative medicine can put a stop to this degeneration. PRP and stem cell therapy not only can alleviate pain, but help you avoid a knee replacement operation.

Shoulder pain

If your shoulder joint hurts due to wear-and-tear, every movement can become torture as a loss of cartilage results in bone rubbing against bone. This can mean a reduced quality of life.

However, Dr. Grossinger specializes in nonsurgical solutions for shoulder pain, including PRP injections, that can help you avoid surgery or the use of opioid medications.

Stem cell or PRP therapies can help treat pain associated with:

Patients who opt for regenerative medicine can often avoid surgery. While surgical procedures can be risky and involve long recovery times, regenerative therapies are minimally invasive. As a result, the recovery period is usually short.

There’s also a low risk of side effects associated with regenerative medicine because the therapies rely on the body's natural materials and processes.

Dr. Grossinger is an expert in PRP and stem cell therapies, helping countless patients avoid surgery or addictive opioids. Regenerative medicine treatments are safe and well tolerated by most patients.
