Regenerative Medicine for Chronic Pain
Regenerative medicine deals with the “process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells to restore or establish normal function.” For chronic pain management, regenerative medicine can offer hope and relief for many patients with debilitating conditions. Tissue can be healed, inflammation can be reduced and strength can be regained with the help of regenerative medicine. At Caliber Pain™, we specialize in regenerative medicine for chronic pain at our state-of-the-art medical facility in Midtown Manhattan.
How Can Regenerative Medicine Relieve Pain?
The body has the key elements needed for healing all types of tissue and reducing inflammation that causes pain. Unfortunately, these factors are not easily accessible. Stem cells, growth factors, platelets and other regenerative substances in the body are not in high enough concentration in the blood to speed up healing. However, when these elements are concentrated and delivered directly to the targeted area with regenerative medicine treatments, they can offer stimulated healing and pain relief effects.
Many types of chronic pain are caused by inflammation and tissue damage. Osteoarthritis pain in joints is a result of deteriorated cartilage and inflammation. Shoulder pain can be caused by tendon damage in the rotator cuff. Regenerative medicine harvests healing factors such as stem cells, platelets and growth factors from blood, adipose (fat) or bone marrow, and then concentrates them for treatment. Injecting regenerative substances directly can help stimulate healing, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
Our pain specialists at Caliber Pain™ utilize a multidisciplinary approach to pain management, using interventional and regenerative medicine in our treatment plans.
