Regenerative Medicine For Joint Pain
Human cells, tissues, and organs break down for a number of reasons, including aging, disease, physical damage or congenital defects. In the musculoskeletal system, this includes damage to the spinal structure, joints, tendons, and ligaments.
In addition to the effects of aging, reasons for these issues can include sports or other impact injuries and such degenerative conditions like osteoporosis. Think of the people you know who are still hobbled today by a football of skiing injury from decades ago.
Whatever the cause, these disorders are traditionally treated through surgery. Or the chronic pain is masked by powerful and potentially dangerous pain meds. Some patients simply learn to live with the pain for as long and as well as they possibly can.
Today, there’s a much better option: regenerative medicine. Our office won’t treat your chronic pain with drugs and surgery. At Advanced Medical Solutions in Myrtle Beach SC, we provide effective pain management by practicing two forms of this innovative, minimally invasive and drug-free treatment strategy.
Let’s start with a basic definition of this biotechnology.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
The theory behind regenerative medicine is that stem cells or your own platelets, from another part of your body, can stimulate your body’s fast cell or tissue growth, quickly establishing or restoring normal function to the area. Even long-term pain can be greatly reduced and often eliminated altogether.
Regenerative medicine is a minimally invasive process, featuring an injection of the human cells into the damaged area. We’ve offered this procedure to many of our patients and have seen incredible results.
