Pain is a distress signal that your body sends to your brain when it’s been damaged, so that you avoid stressing the affected body part and get help. Masking the pain with medications that block your body’s pain-signaling processes may give you relief, but doesn’t repair the actual damage.
If you have chronic pain (pain that lasts for 12 weeks or more), you may not even remember or know what caused the original injury.
At the New Hampshire Regenerative Center, LLC, in Manchester, New Hampshire, our team of medical professionals stay on the cutting-edge of pain relief by offering regenerative medicine that repairs the damage behind your pain.
If you’re not sure what regenerative medicine is, or how it can work to stop your pain, here are a few reasons why it may be the solution for which you’ve been searching.
Regenerative therapy is flexible
Our team focuses on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which are non-differentiated cells that can form themselves into many other types of cells, as needed. Your practitioner injects MSCs directly into the injured nerve, bone, or tissue.
The MSCs grow healthy new blood vessels to increase circulation and accelerate healing at the injury site. They also secrete proteins and growth factors, which help the injured areas rebuild themselves.
The MSCs can be used to repair or regrow:
- Fractured bones
- Scar tissue
- And more
Stem-cell therapy first gained popularity when surgeons and orthopedists used it to repair acute injuries and accelerate healing in professional athletes, such as Tiger Woods. However, we now use regenerative therapy to treat chronic pain conditions, too, including arthritis and back pain.
You subdue inflammation without drugs
During the healing process, your injured tissues release chemicals such as histamine and bradykinin, which cause the injured area to swell and become inflamed. The inflammation is part of the healing process, and yet it causes, pain, too, by irritating surrounding nerves.
Stem-cell therapy’s healing powers prevent the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals. If you have an overactive immune system that’s attacking healthy tissue, MSCs can quiet down your immune response and stop the attacks.
Regenerative therapy is holistic
As with all the healing options we offer at the New Hampshire Regenerative Center, LLC, regenerative therapy is a holistic treatment that works with your body, not against it. Regenerative therapy is compatible with other supportive therapies, including joint mobilization, nutritional guidance, and exercise.
The relief continues with time
If you’re a candidate for regenerative therapy, you may need a series of stem-cell treatments to stimulate healing and rebuild your injured nerves and other tissues. You’ll notice a change over the next several weeks that continues and improves for months.
Not everyone is a candidate for regenerative therapy. To schedule a consultation and evaluation, use our online form or call our friendly office staff.
