Neck pain is something that is experienced by a lot of people. Some manage to ward it off with over-the-counter medicine or the occasional ice pack, but if the pain keeps coming back, a different approach may be in order. At West LA Regenerative Medicine, we have years of experience providing residents of Los Angeles, CA with regenerative medicine therapy for neck pain relief. Instead of masking your pain with prescription medication, we tap into the tools of your own body to help it heal itself.
How Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy Can Help Neck Pain
Many clinics attempt standard chiropractic or physical therapy techniques for neck pain. While there are some benefits to these techniques, they often are not enough. Neck pain is not life-threatening, but it does threaten your lifestyle. It makes it harder to go about your day, and the pain often spreads, leading to headaches. Sometimes it is caused by a specific incident, but it can also stem from osteoarthritis in the neck, fibromyalgia, disc degeneration, cervical dysfunction, and others.
Stem cell therapy addresses neck pain at its source. Injecting your stem cells promotes healing, relieving pain while also reducing the incidence of other symptoms like spasms, numbness, and tingling. All of this contributes to improved mobility and an enhanced natural healing process.
An ultrasound will be used to identify where stem cells need to be injected. After the injection, cells regenerate and facilitate the healing process by releasing anti-inflammatory proteins. This can help give you your life back by decreasing your pain and allowing for a fast recovery that helps you keep moving and feel less tired.
Why Stem Cells?
The body is designed to regenerate tissue, but there are times when due to age or disease, that process no longer goes smoothly. Stem cells are also known as blank slate cells and can conform to the role of surrounding cells to help with regeneration. The truest "chameleons" are pluripotent stem cells, from human embryos that can take on the function of any cell. Multipotent cells, found in adult bodies are more limited, but still very effective. They are found in many areas including
- Bone marrow
While some younger donor cells or even embryonic stem cells have the potential of being more effective, the safest option is to repurpose cells in a person's own body from another area.
