Chronic and debilitating joint pain is a painful reality for millions of Americans. Most people believe that surgery or daily pain medication is their only option, and delay seeking treatment. At Regenerative Medical Center of Delaware, we’re offering you more natural and longer-lasting regenerative treatment options using stem cell therapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). These treatments arenon-surgical and will help to naturally reduce painful inflammation that causes joint pain. Cellular therapy promotes natural healing within the tissue surrounding the joint. This reduces harmful joint inflammation and pain relief.
Pain Management Treatments for Joint Pain:
Using the patient’s own blood, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) isolates and concentrates the platelets and utilizes the natural growth factors within the blood to repair the damaged area. These platelets are then injected into the area that has been injured, thus, reducing inflammation and promoting the healing process. PRP treatments can also be combined with exosome therapy, which can result in a further reduction of joint inflammation and increased healing.
- Stellate Ganglion Blocks
This long acting injection is an anesthetic that relieves pain in the stellate ganglion nerve bundle, located in the neck. Stellate Ganglion Block injections will help to relieve chronic pain in the head, neck, arms and upper chest areas, even if these areas have not responded favorably to other treatments before!
- Epidural Steroid Injections
An Epidural Steroid Injection can relieve chronic spinal pain in the neck, mid-back and lower back. The steroids act as an anti- inflammatory, thus, relieving pain. They are injected into the epidural space around the spinal nerves.
- SI Joint Injections
A facet joint injection can help ease chronic pain in the small joints of the neck, as well as the mid and lower back areas. In order to ease the pain resulting from inflammation, a small amount of steroids is injected into the troubled area. The pain relief is long lasting and can last for months or even years.
Regenerative Medical Therapies Offered:
Regenerative medicine utilizes the latest treatments available in medical technology today. We use specific types of cells in order to help repairboth the structure and function to damaged tissues and organs. At the Regenerative Medical Center of Delaware, we offer four varieties of cellular therapies to aid in the reductionof joint pain:
- Stem Cell Therapy:
Stem cells have the ability to help repair damaged tissues and heal inflammation by differentiating into the specific cell types the body needs to target damaged areas. By using stem cell therapy, the patient can possibly eliminate the need for surgery.
A wide variety of diseases, damage to the body and injuries can be treated using stem cell therapy. Stem cells, have different capabilities based on where they originate and how they are obtained.
- PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP uses the patient’s own concentrated platelet cells from within their own blood to conduct the procedure. The platelets within the blood have growth factors that are credited to aide in the healing of chronic injuries, thus reducing inflammation and pain. The procedure uses the body’s own ability to heal itself, by injecting PRP into the injured areas.
- Exosome Therapy:
According to research, exosomes have great potential to provide healing benefits within the body. Exosomes are small structures within a cell known as extracellular vesicles released from in response to injuries. They are imperative in would healing by aiding the change of blood from a liquid into a gel which is necessary for clotting.
- Amniotic Fluid:
Amniotic derived stem cells (ASCs), also called amnion or amniotic fluid, are stem cells derived from donated amniotic fluid and tissue. Amniotic stem cells do not cause harm to embryos during collection. It is done by extracting the fluid from the amniotic sac via an amniocentesis. These powerful stem cells have a unique ability to self-regenerate, creating new healthy cells to replace diseased and damaged cells within the body.
