Natural pain relief is a concept by which painful conditions are alleviated without using medication or surgery. It approaches pain at its source, taking many different factors into consideration and focusing on the root cause of the pain.
At Regain Functional Medicine, we use regenerative treatments to relieve painful conditions that may be holding you back from doing the things you love. Our goal is to help you feel better, move better and function better to regain your quality of life. Schedule a free consultation today to get the process started.
How is Pain Relief Different than Pain Management?
The main difference between pain relief and pain management is that pain relief focuses on solving the underlying cause of your pain, while pain management focuses on managing the symptoms.
It’s important to keep in mind that pain isn’t the issue, it is the byproduct of the issue. If you have a torn rotator cuff, you will experience shoulder pain as a result. If you fix the injury at it's source, the pain will disappear.
When you cover up any type of pain with medication, you will receive temporary relief, but you’ll never have a real solution. Because the cause of the pain hasn’t been addressed, you may end up in a pain management cycle, continuously taking medication every time the pain comes back.
Our regenerative medicine treatments address the root cause of your painful condition and will help with issues like knee pain, hip pain, back pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, foot pain, neck pain, and more.
Other conditions we have had success treating include:
- Damaged cartilage
- Sprains and strains
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Torn ligaments
- Torn rotator cuff
- Runner’s knee
- And more
Regenerative Medicine for Pain
Our doctors use regenerative cells derived from Wharton’s jelly to alleviate pain and improve mobility in our patients. Wharton’s jelly is a substance found in umbilical cord tissue, which is donated after a scheduled cesarean section birth. This tissue contains highly potent healing qualities like proteins, growth factors, peptides, collagen, cytokines and more to repair and rejuvenate damaged tissue and cells throughout the body. The collection process does not harm the baby or the mother, and all donors are screened beforehand to ensure we get the highest quality tissue for treatment.
Our doctors also use platelet-rich plasma therapy and exosome therapy to help relieve pain naturally. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is made from a sample of your own blood that has been spun in a centrifuge to concentrate its healing qualities. The resulting golden serum has a high concentration of platelets that contain potent, restorative properties. Once injected into the affected area, they facilitate healing to fix the cause of your pain.
Exosome therapy involves injecting exosomes into an area of need to communicate between cells and guide them to the source of your pain. These powerhouses are small protein sacs that are excreted by the cells throughout the body. They work to help coordinate other cells and gather them together to initiate healing at the source.
All of these treatments are non-surgical and all-natural, with little to no side effects and almost no chance of rejection.
