Regenerative medicine is a combination of tissue engineering and molecular biology that aims to regenerate and rebuild damaged tissues in the body, including muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Regenerative medicine is most often used to reduce chronic and acute pain, improve joint function, and reduce chronic inflammation that can cause damage to healthy tissues.
Any type of injury or chronic pain causes inflammation at the injury site. If the body can’t heal the injury quickly enough, the inflammation can cause lasting damage as it irritates healthy tissues in the area, causing more widespread pain. Regenerative medicine can slow down the inflammation process and give your body the resources it needs to heal properly.
Regenerative medicine is used most often for people struggling with chronic pain and disability. Conditions that can benefit from regenerative medicine include:
Many joint and muscle pain conditions are the result of wear-and-tear and overuse injuries, especially from repetitive movements like typing, bending, and twisting. Over time, acute injuries that don’t heal can become chronic and cause recurrent pain due to inflammation.
The regenerative medicine specialists offer conservative management of chronic pain and acute injuries using regenerative medicine techniques. These techniques include:
Low-level laser therapy uses visible light to penetrate your skin to reach the injury site. The tissues at the site absorb the visible light and use the energy to repair damaged tissues. Florida Neuro Pain & Spine Center uses the K-Laser®, a class IV therapeutic laser for noninvasive and painless laser treatments.
During the procedure, you wear protective glasses to block the visible light from irritating your eyes. Most laser therapy sessions last under 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
