Alleviate Your Discomfort Through the Use of Regenerative Medicine

Life becomes much harder when we’re living with pain. From auto accidents to work-related injuries and chronic discomfort, your quality of life is compromised. Samwell Institute for Pain Management in Colonia and Livingston offers you both options: pain management focusing on relieving symptoms while regenerative medicine provides solutions to heal conditions causing it.

Advancements in Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is an innovative form of treatment used to heal damaged tissues. At SamWell Institute for Pain Management, Dr. Jay M. Shaw uses this form of medicine to assist his patients manage chronic health conditions like joint osteoarthritis and sports injuries through PRP treatments and stem cell therapies.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is created from blood samples taken from you and contains natural healing components like platelets, specialized cells and growth factors that promote faster healing times of injuries or diseases as well as promote new healthy tissue to take their place. When injected into damaged areas of tissue, PRP injection helps speed recovery faster while encouraging regeneration of healthy new tissue in its place.

Stem cell research has produced much encouraging evidence, yet many remain uncertain of its use and application. Stem cells can transform from non-specific repair cells into specific types that form new muscle fibers, bone tissue, vessels or nerves in your body. Stem cell therapy uses them to support natural healing while speeding it along; when injected directly into damaged tissues they transform into the necessary repair cells that repair the damage faster than existing therapies alone can do.

Harnessing Spinal Cord Stimulation for Therapeutic Benefits

Regenerative medicine is often utilized for joint osteoarthritis, which causes knee, hip, and shoulder discomfort. Regenerative treatments also tend to work well for injuries sustained from sporting activities; however, there are other treatment options such as spinal cord stimulation that may provide relief.

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS), can be an effective treatment option for certain pain conditions. Once implanted, a spinal cord stimulator sends electrical pulses directly to electrodes overlying the spinal cord to intercept pain signals on their way to the brain; instead of feeling pain directly in that location, people experiencing SCS simply feel no sensation at all – or possibly only tingling sensations instead.

SCS therapy is typically employed to treat neuropathic leg and back pain, which affects approximately 25% of back surgery patients after surgery. More and more often it’s being utilized as an alternative approach. Spinal cord stimulation also proves helpful for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) which manifests itself by chronic discomfort in one limb of either arm, hand, leg or foot and often occurs following injury that damages peripheral and central nervous systems.

The Key Takeaway

No matter the source of your discomfort, don’t suffer in silence. If you have been involved in an accident at work, home, or while driving your car it is imperative that an exam be taken immediately and if suffering chronic pain continues then SamWell Institute for Pain Management’s pain management specialists can help improve quality of life and achieve greater independence for life.
