How Regenerative Medicine Therapy Can Alleviate Your Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, which is any pain that lasts for six months or longer, affects more than 20% of adults in the United States, 8% of whom experience high-impact chronic pain. And these numbers are only expected to grow as the population ages. Health care providers are responding as best they can to remedy the problem, which typically means treating the symptoms and not the underlying issue. In an effort to provide longer-term relief, researchers are finding that regenerative medicine may hold the key. By tackling the pain at its source, at a cellular level, patients are able to take back their lives.

At Waco Integrated Medicine in Woodway, Texas, our team takes a broad view of chronic pain and uses an integrative approach that helps your body heal from the inside out. As part of our comprehensive suite of services, we offer regenerative medicine, which is showing great promise in helping our patients find much-needed relief from chronic pain.

Here’s a look at how regenerative medicine may be able to help put an end to your chronic pain.

The power of mesenchymal stem cells

The overriding goal of regenerative medicine is to repair or regrow tissues or organs that have been damaged by disease, age, and any other forces that cause harm. Modern medicine has been successful with interventional treatments that bypass the body’s natural systems to repair and rebuild, but it lacks some of the most powerful resources available — our own.

At the heart of regenerative medicine are mesenchymal stem cells. These medical marvels are the building blocks upon which all cells are formed because they have the unique ability to transform into other cells and then multiply as that cell. By tapping this natural resource, we supply your body with a powerful regenerative boost that works with your body, rather than against it. 

There are several sources for this type of regenerative medicine and we’ve chosen to work with Predictive Biotech. This innovative company offers products that are FDA-compliant and derived from the Wharton’s jelly layer of the umbilical cord and amniotic fluid and amnio tissue, which are ethically sourced from healthy, full-term donors.

Predictive Biotech’s products go beyond mesenchymal stem cells because the human body requires a number of resources to optimize the healing environment, including:

These ingredients blend together to promote healing, rebuilding, and repair of human tissues.

Putting regenerative medicine to work for you

After a thorough assessment of your condition, we come up with a treatment plan that works best for your unique situation. You may require a series of injections, but they only take minutes for us to administer and there’s no downtime afterward.

One of the exciting benefits of regenerative medicine is that when we introduce these powerful tools into your damaged tissue, they also provide a wake-up call for your own resources. As the introduced human cell and tissue products go to work to repair and rebuild your tissue, they’re joined by your own resources, creating the ultimate cooperative healing environment.

Because we’re working with completely natural products, it may take some time to see results as your body sets to work to rebuild from within. Ultimately, our goal with our regenerative medicine treatments isn’t to mask your problem, but rather lead to a longer-lasting solution for your chronic pain.
