Chronic pain can cause extreme discomfort, which may make your life miserable. Regenerative medicine addresses the root cause of your pain and provides long-term relief, unlike other medications that may provide relief for a short time. If you’re struggling with chronic pain in Walnut Creek, CA regenerative medicine is the solution.
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine refers to a holistic interventional pain management approach that focuses on replacing, healing, and promoting the regeneration of new healthy cells. Dr. DeLaney uses stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to stimulate cell regeneration and to trigger your body’s healing process. PRP injections consist of a sample of concentrated platelets that are drawn from your blood to accelerate the healing process of your tendons, ligaments, and muscles, elevating your pain. Stem cells, on the other hand, are drawn from your bone marrow or fatty tissue. These cells are unique in the sense that they can regenerate into different types of cells such as muscle, bone, or nerve tissue. The regeneration of new cells heals your body from the inside to the outside.
What health concerns can regenerative medicine address?
Regenerative medicine is a state-of-art pain management technique that can be incorporated into your treatment plans for chronic conditions. These therapies help you manage chronic pain, inflammation, and discomfort resulting from chronic health conditions. Dr. DeLaney performs a medical exam to determine if you’re eligible for regenerative medicine therapy. She may also review your medical history and enquire about your existing condition before creating an appropriate treatment plan for you. She may also employ diagnostic technology such as ultrasound, X-rays, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect the root cause of your chronic pain. She may then discuss with you the available regenerative medicine therapies and recommend the most effective approach for your condition. Regenerative medicine can alleviate pain from chronic conditions, such as:
- Muscle strains
- Degenerative disc disease
- Joint injuries
- Ligament tears
If you’re struggling with premature hair loss, you can also consider regenerative medicine. Dr. DeLaney uses PRP, which triggers your hair follicles to regenerate new hair growth.
What should you expect during regenerative medicine therapy?
During your appointment, Dr. DeLaney creates a comfortable environment for you before beginning your treatment. Regenerative medicine therapy is a two-step procedure. For the first step, she draws a small sample of your blood and puts it in a centrifuge to concentrate the PRP and separate it from other blood components. When using stem cells, she performs a slightly invasive procedure that involves the extraction of the material from your bone marrow and fatty tissue. She then places the material into a centrifuge to isolate the concentrated stem cells from the material. Dr. DeLaney injects the resulting concentrated PRP or stem cells into your body at the target or injured site. After the procedure, your body accelerates the production of new healthy cells that replace the impaired ones. During the healing process, your pain and inflammation reduce until it is negligible.
