What is natural pain relief? Natural pain relief refers to reducing pain using natural treatments that do not include surgery or pharmaceuticals. Chiropractic care is useful at relieving many painful conditions. In addition, regenerative medicine treatments using mesenchymal cells or platelet-rich plasma are also effective methods of natural pain relief.How Is Pain Relief Different Than Pain Management?
When you experience pain in any part of your body, it is merely a symptom of a deeper issue. For example, sciatica will cause a great deal of pain. That pain is just a by-product of the sciatic nerve being compressed or irritated. The same is true of any injury or degenerative condition in your body.
When this occurs, conventional medicine will often get you on a pain management program that includes medication to cover up or mask the pain.
You may experience relief from the discomfort. As soon as the medication wears off though, the pain returns until another round of medication is administered. The main difference between pain relief and pain management is that pain relief treats the underlying cause of pain, and pain management treats the symptom. Only when you address and treat the root cause of the pain will you experience long-term pain relief.
Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help Relieve Pain
A good time to visit a chiropractor for pain relief is if you are experiencing moderate to severe pain that interferes with your normal daily routine. This may include sore joints, aching muscles, overall stiffness or headaches. When you experience any of these issues, your body needs to be restored to its natural balance. This can be accomplished through a chiropractic adjustment. And since the treatment focuses on the underlying cause of your pain, the relief you get will last long-term.
Chiropractic Adjustments are effective for alleviating many painful conditions, including:
All-natural pain relief with chiropractic care is also an effective way to regain lost mobility and flexibility and can also help you function on a daily basis. When you have an adjustment, a short lever thrust is applied to the joint manually using the arms, or using a special tool that can adjust the vertebrae.
Most people don’t feel any pain from the adjustment, but there is an audible cracking sound as gas is released from the joint. It is this release of gas that relieves pressure and reduces your pain.
Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Chronic Pain And Degenerative Conditions
Regenerative medicine is a safe, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that helps heal damaged and degraded tissue to promote pain relief. The doctors at our health care clinic use two types of regenerative medicine treatments; Cell Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). These treatments are in the form of injections that target the underlying cause of your pain and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Regenerative medicine is effective for healing many pain and orthopedic conditions, including:
Regenerative medicine treatments are completely safe, minimally invasive and requires little to no down time with zero adverse reactions. While each treatment can be highly effective on its own, cell therapy and PRP injections are often used in conjunction.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
For our cell therapy treatments, we use Wharton’s Jelly derived regenerative cells. Wharton’s Jelly is a substance found in newborn's umbilical cords. We collect these cells from donated cords after a healthy cesarean birth. The cords are donated by the mother, who is carefully screened during her pregnancy, and the tissue collection poses no harm to the mother or baby.
The main reason we prefer these cells for treatment is their youth. They are so young that they have a full complement of cytokines, growth factors, mesenchymal cells, collagens, proteins, peptides, and exosomes that aid in fast and efficient healing.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
A platelet-rich plasma injection, or PRP, is created after a small sample of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge. As it spins at high speed, the plasma and platelets separate. It is the highly concentrated platelets that are used for the injections. PRP injections promote important aspects of wound healing, such as proliferation, remodeling, and inflammation.
PRP can also be used for aesthetic treatments, like the Bio Facial. We offer this treatment at our clinic, and it has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance.
