One of the remarkable things about the human body is its natural ability to heal itself in many ways. For example, if you break a bone and it is properly set or kept in place (such as in a cast), it will mend over time. If you get a cut in your skin, or if you fall and scrape your knee, your wound will gradually heal and disappear.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for chronic conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and osteoarthritis. These are problems that do not heal on their own and thereby require long-term management and/or medical treatment.
Nevertheless, there is a relatively new field of medicine – known as regenerative medicine – that aims to trigger your body’s naturally occurring ability to heal itself and treat an amazingly wide range of conditions. Let’s talk about what regenerative therapy is, how it works, and where you can go in Caldwell to receive this incredible natural treatment.
The Goal of Regenerative Therapy
Since the 1990s, when tissue engineering became more widespread for stem cell research and procedures like grafting, regenerative medicine has developed as a viable alternative to other medical treatment modalities that merely manage conditions without actually healing them. Take, for example, osteoarthritis – the symptoms of which can be mitigated by taking ibuprofen or receiving a steroid injection, but these treatments do not help heal the actual cause of arthritis.
Regenerative medicine, on the other hand, works to regenerate damaged tissue and restore its structure and function by activating the body’s innate ability to heal. It does so through the use of cellular therapies which may include ozone injections, stem cell treatment, and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment.
Nonsurgical regenerative therapy has been proven to be effective in the treatment of herniated discs, neck and back pain, joint pain, and painful muscle conditions. In essence, regenerative therapies go beyond disease management and actually support the body in repairing, regenerating, and restoring itself on a cellular level.
