As more people turn to their chiropractors for non-surgical treatment methods for pain, injury, illness, and wellness, regenerative medicine is becoming increasingly popular. Chronic pain, joint pain, and muscle pain are huge issues for people because they can really affect your ability to live your daily life without severe discomfort. In a fast-paced healthcare world where medication is often the first line of defense, many people are looking to natural alternatives for pain relief and hoping to avoid uncomfortable side effects. Regenerative medicine offers a non-invasive, simple, and effective solution to treat many issues of chronic pain and degenerative disorders.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge approach to restoring normal function to a damaged area of the body by replacing or regenerating affected cells and tissues. A regenerative medicine approach to your treatment and healing process involves promoting the healthy functioning of tissues and organs and increasing your quality of life. Aging, injury, and illness can all damage tissues and regenerative medicine applies new approaches to treatment and healing that support your body’s ability to repair, regenerate, and restore itself.
What Are the Benefits of Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine doesn’t just treat your pain symptoms; it works to address the root cause of your pain and promote your body’s restorative and regenerative abilities to heal the area. Similar to when you get a small cut and your body is able to repair and heal itself, regenerative medicine seeks to promote these responses in other areas of the body. When you try regenerative medicine, you will experience pain reduction while the body is also working to heal itself. This type of approach to your health and well-being improves functioning, mobility, and range of motion in affected areas and beyond.
Here are the top 4 things regenerative medicine can help.
Joint pain is one of the main reasons why people seek treatment and pain relief. When you visit your chiropractor for joint pain relief, they will want to assess how joint damage has affected your mobility and ability to participate in daily activities without pain and discomfort. Joint pain can occur in all your joints, especially in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. Sports injuries like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and runner’s knee can all cause joint pain due to overuse. General wear-and-tear on the joints as you age can also lead to joint pain.
Degenerative diseases and disorders like arthritis can cause significant joint pain and damage. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and psoriatic arthritis can each cause pain and discomfort in and around the joints that affect your quality of life. If you struggle with painful symptoms of arthritis, you likely also experience swelling and inflammation in and around your joints. The cartilage in your joints breaks down with age and due to wear-and-tear on the body, which can cause bones to rub against one another. Regenerative medicine can promote healing, restore blood flow and nutrients to the area, and even support tissue regrowth in the area to help support your joints and help aid your osteoarthritis treatment.
If you experience muscle pain that keeps you from participating in the activities and sports you used to love, then regenerative medicine may be able to offer you lasting relief. Whether or not you are an active and avid sports player, you can still experience muscle pain that can be damaging to your quality of life and enjoyment. Muscle pain doesn’t have to keep you from the things you enjoy. Strains and tears in the muscles can take time to repair and resolve with traditional therapies, but regenerative medicine can promote faster healing and pain relief. Many people experience pain relief and positive results after their first or second treatment with regenerative medicine!
Sports injuries tend to affect muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues in the body that all work together to help you move through life. When your mobility and flexibility are compromised, you may be unable to participate in the fun activities you enjoy. Regenerative medicine is popular with amateur and professional athletes alike because of its non-invasive to minimally invasive treatment approaches to promoting healing and providing lasting pain relief.
