Regenerative Medicine Treatments

Our body is capable of healing and defending itself from injuries and disease. Rather than find a substitute way to repair the body, some specialized treatments instead assist the body in its own natural rehabilitation. Regenerative medicine is changing the standard of treatment with its potential to restore the structure and function of the damaged tissues by stimulating the body’s natural mechanism in an accelerated and relevant way. It has now become the standard of care to bring most patients the outcome they deserve.

Regenerative medicine involves the delivery of growth factors to injured joints and tissues to promote the healing process. The doctors listed with the Relief Institute offer state-of-the-art injectable treatments known for their results. They are non-surgical procedures that are proven safe and effective.

These group of physicians offer only the most comprehensive and advanced regenerative medicine just for you. Learn more about these medical techniques and how it differs from traditional approaches in pain management.

The difference between traditional and regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine solutions are different from the traditional pain management that we are used to. The traditional method of pain management typically involves medications, diagnostic and therapeutic blocks, neuromodulation and injectable anti-inflammatories. These medical practices are effective but are not always ideal.

Sometimes, long-term exposure to traditional medicines and treatments can lead to unwanted side effects or invasiveness and can require extra care on your behalf. These solutions may not be practical as most of them offer short-lived solutions and do not address the root cause of the problem.

Regenerative medicine, on the other hand, is focused on treating the root cause of the problem to prevent it from coming back. When it comes to healing soft tissue injuries, the scale and scope of recovery and relief from pain offered by regenerative treatment therapies are far more effective than some of the currently available traditional treatment options. Regenerative helps stimulate the healing and growth of new tissues in the same way your body repairs itself. The biological materials used are delivered to the target areas to jumpstart the healing process.

The relationship between regenerative medicine and stem cells

Stem cells are naturally found in a person’s body. It is a kind of cell that has the unique ability to develop into specialized cell types whether it becomes a muscle, nerve, cartilage, ligament, or bone. These cells are sent to the damaged areas of the body that needs regeneration.

Regenerative medicine does not contain “live” stem cells. However, these treatment procedures are using products that are loaded with mesenchymal stem cellular tissues, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, peptides, proteoglycans, and collagen which are essential components to repair, restore, and replace damaged tissue.

Some benefits of regenerative medicine include:

  • Accelerated restoration
  • Full rehabilitation
  • Increased strength and comfort
  • Rejuvenated movement

Regenerative medicine promotes the production of growth factors, like collagen, to start boost the healing process and improve the tension and mobility of ligaments, tendons, tissues and other structures surrounding joints. Treating the root of the pain increases strength, movement and comfort.

Foot and ankle conditions that can be treated with regenerative medicine

The focus of regenerative medicine is to aid with orthopedic and musculoskeletal issues. These therapies are used to treat foot and ankle conditions including:

  • Achilles tendonitis and tears
  • Ankle sprains and instability
  • Degenerative and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Degenerated joints in the ankle
  • Foot pain
  • Ligament injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Choosing regenerative medicine in managing your pain greatly reduces the need for surgery before anything gets worse. When surgery is required due to the extent and severity of an injury, the possibility of full recovery can be enhanced by the use of regenerative medicine. It has helped many professionals and athletes heal faster from an injury so they can return to their normal activities.

Ankle Injury
Usually due to an underlying injury, ankle pain refers to any kind of sudden or worsening discomfort affecting any part of the ankle.

Ankle Joint Injury
An ankle joint injury may be due to the soft tissues of a ligament or tendon stretching beyond their capacity, better known as an ankle sprain or strain.

Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle
The pain and stiffness you feel in your feet and ankles as you age could be arthritis. If left untreated, this nagging pain can get worse over time, eventually making it difficult to walk even short distances.

Big Toe Arthritis (Hallux Rigidus)
Hallux rigidus is arthritis of the joint at the base of the big toe.

Body Complication
A body complication can be dangerous when it affects everyday nerve, motor and autonomic functions, including the immune system and blood flow.

Bone Injury
A single foot contains 26 bones, any of which can be linked to a source of discomfort. A bone injury can affect the shape, balance or function of the foot.

Bone Union Problem
A bone is “healed” when it is strong enough to allow for normal activities. A bone union problem is a bone that does not heal properly or is taking longer than expected.

Bursitis is a painful inflammation of a small fluid-filled sac called a bursa, which is located under the tendon and serves as it’s protection.

Compartment Syndrome
Compartment syndrome occurs when excessive pressure builds up inside an enclosed muscle space in the body, most commonly after exercising.

Corns and Calluses
Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop to protect against friction and pressure. They mostly develop on your feet and hands.

Dance Injury
Dance can be physically demanding and the pressure placed on the foot and ankle can increase the risk of developing an injury.

Diabetes Complications
People living with diabetes are prone to having foot problems, often because of two complications common among diabetics: nerve damage and poor circulation.

Great (Big) Toe Joint Disorder
Hallux rigidus is a disorder of the joint located at the base of the great (big) toe. It causes pain and stiffness in the joint.

Ankle Impingement is a condition where pain is experienced due to compression of the bony or soft tissue structures during a specific range of motion.

Injuries to the Achilles Tendon
An overly stressed Achilles tendon can be subject to mild or serious injuries. If the injury is mild or moderate, it may be limited to burning or stiffness.

Instability is the inability of a joint to support weight or maintain balance, a feat which requires coordination between functional ligaments and tendons.

Injuries to the Achilles Tendon
An overly stressed Achilles tendon can be subject to mild or serious injuries. If the injury is mild or moderate, it may be limited to burning or stiffness.

Lateral Column Overload
Lateral column overload is a condition describing pain due to excessive weight running through the lateral column onto the outer part of the midfoot.

Lisfranc Injury
A lisfranc injury occurs as a result of direct or indirect forces exerted on the foot. A direct force often involves something heavy falling on the foot.

Morton’s Neuroma
Morton’s neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of the foot, most commonly the area between the third and fourth toes.

Osteoarthritis is characterized by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in one or more joints. Cartilage cushions the bones during movement.

Peroneal Tendon Injury
A peroneal tendon injury most commonly occurs in individuals who participate in sports that involve repetitive ankle motion.

Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is caused by repeated strain on the plantar fascia, the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes, supporting the arch of the foot.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition where the immune system attacks the joint lining tissue, causing painful inflammation and stiffness.

Tendinopathy and Tendonitis
Tendonitis is the resulting inflammation from tendinopathy (or tendinosis), a common overuse injury caused by frequent and long-term excessive compression.

Tendon Rupture
A tendon rupture is a tear in the tendon connecting bone to muscle. This foot injury is painful and prevents the foot and ankle from moving freely.

Tendon Strain
A strain is a stretch or tear in the tissues making up a tendon or muscle. These injuries commonly occur while participating in sports.
