Pain varies from person to person and impacts each individual in their own unique way. The key to successful medical care and healing is to treat the individual person rather than just the condition that underlies their pain Therefore, a holistic approach towards assessing pain conditions is not only helpful, but ESSENTIAL!
For joint pain conditions, Regenerative Medicine treatments have shown promise as novel, safe, effective, and natural approaches towards healing from injury These approaches, which includes Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment, STEM CELL Treatment, and PROLOTHERAPY Treatment, uses an individual’s own biological tissue to increase the rate of the body’s own regenerative and healing process
Pain is described as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain can be a symptom of an underlying condition, and if not adequately treated can impair a person’s ability to optimally function in their daily life. Although the source of pain may be located throughout all parts of the body, all pain sensory information is relayed to the sensory perceptual areas of he brain to be processed. These specific brain regions have a dual role as processors of pain as well as negative emotional experiences. Therefore, pain can be triggered by or reinforced through emotional stress.

Many musculoskeletal related pain conditions are successfully treated using regenerative medicine therapies. These therapeutic techniques utilize your own cells to promote healing and repair acute and chronic pain conditions to provide pain relief, improve and restore function.
Highly targeted procedures used to identify and treat your pain. These procedures are considered as diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), or physiatry, is a field of medicine that promotes functional restoration of a person affected by physical disability as a result of injury to muscle, bone, tissue, and nervous system.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), or physiatry, is a field of medicine that promotes functional restoration of a person affected by physical disability as a result of injury to muscle, bone, tissue, and nervous system. Emphasis is placed on the optimization of function through the combined use of medications, physical modalities, physical training with therapeutic exercise, movement & activities modification, adaptive equipment and assistive device, orthotics (braces), prosthesis, and experiential training approaches
The aims of interventional pain medicine are to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. Interventional pain medicine techniques target the source of your pain by using procedures to identify the main location/origin of your pain, and allows for treatment of the underlying condition causing the pain. o Interventional pain medicine also aims to reduce heavy reliance on medications.
Regenerative medicine therapies successfully treat many musculoskeletal related pain conditions and have been shown to provide pain relief, improve and restore function, while reducing the cost of musculoskeletal health care. Regenerative medicine techniques utilize your own cells to promote healing and repair of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscle.
When used in combination with traditional Western Medical treatments, Complementary Pain Medicine (non-Western) therapies that have been shown to decrease pain severity and improve outcomes.
These therapies pose limited risks, have few to no side effects, and provide overall health benefits at a low cost.
