STEM CELLS: HYPE or HOPE

STEM CELLS: HYPE or HOPE

If you are like a large portion of patients coming through our door and calling the office, you are being inundated with info on stem cells and treatments for chronic pain or injury.

You may have even become skeptical at the idea of regenerative medicine due to the sheer volume of contradictory information available. Some would have you believe that the traditional orthopedic approach is the only way, while others tout the benefits of a minimally invasive form of treatment. So who can you believe? How do you decipher what is real and what is hype? The good news is: regenerative medicine is not only very real, but very effective for the appropriate candidates. Most candidates of regenerative treatment are looking to avoid surgery and long-term use of pain medications. At RestoraLife Regenerative Care, we strive to achieve that very goal for our patients.

We treat a variety of common ailments of the aging or injured person, including back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain, along with neuropathy and various other degenerative conditions. Unfortunately, many regenerative medicine offices have adopted a one-size-fits-all, inject and release standard. Rather than utilizing this type of approach, we evaluate each candidate and develop a protocol tailored to each person’s specific problem. We pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of the regenerative medicine field while treating every patient like our only patient. For thousands of RestoraLife patients, this is the life they now have. Regenerative medicine has allowed them to reclaim their lives from pain and regain control over their future.

It’s RestoraLife’s mission to restore joint function and spine health to get people back to an active lifestyle; all while avoiding the traditional route of surgeries, medication, and painful recovery. We strive to provide a level of care that is second to none, and our patients’ results are truly a testament to that.

“Imagine a life without chronic pain – what would that mean for you? Feeling better physically is usually just the start. Relationships improve, activity levels rise, and social activities resume. Life is enjoyable again, with every day being an opportunity that your pain cannot take from you. A life free from pain is a restored life; one that provides hope and anticipation for the future.”

Frank D. – “For me, it was an easy decision. I want to keep my joints and avoid surgery. 2-½ years ago I walked with a cane and RestoraLife gave me another lease on life. I got rid of my cane one month after treatments. Now I am back having my knees and shoulders treated. I want more out of life. I want to do as much as I can. Come hear my full story at the Carrabba’s seminar.”

Bill G. – “When I first came into RestoraLife, I was angry and in pain. I couldn’t walk more than 20 steps without wanting to sit. I tried many pain management options in an attempt to relieve my pain and nothing worked. Thankfully, Frank shared his experience with me. I am now several weeks into my treatments and I am very pleased with my progress. I no longer feel sidelined by pain.”

Roger B. – “I was about to have a spinal stimulator placed in my back for the constant level 8 or 9 pain. However, I was fearful of more invasive treatment. I had two back surgeries that did not relieve my pain and left my legs extremely weak. When I came to RestoraLife, I got Hope that there might be a better option. Eight months later, I am in therapy to regain my strength, off of all pain medication and walking upright.”

Alternative to Neck and Back Surgery

Don’t Operate; Regeneratecontact-us-restoralife

Alternative to Neck and Back Surgery

regenerative treatmentsAt 70, Frank DeLauro is thrilled to be enjoying his retirement to the fullest. Two to three days a week, you can spot him running around Viera East Golf Club, where he works as a Starter. On the days Frank isn’t running around the green, he enjoys hitting the gym and playing bocce ball at Heritage Isle. Two years ago, however, he wasn’t doing any of these things.

At age 55, in an attempt to continue his exciting career, Frank underwent bilateral hip replacement surgery. For 10 years after the procedure, he continued to manage severe neck and back pain until lack of mobility forced him to retire.

At 67, Frank found himself facing a stark reality. “I couldn’t stand for more than 10 minutes or walk farther than 200 feet without severe pain.”  His cane became his constant companion, and on particularly bad days, he found himself confined to a wheelchair. Frank then began suffering from knee and shoulder pain that made even simple, everyday tasks unbearable.  

Desperate for relief, Frank sought the help of an orthopedic surgeon. There, he learned he was suffering from stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and his body, spine and joints were riddled with degenerative osteoarthritis. What came next was some unsettling news. “He told me I would need a spinal fusion if I ever wanted to walk or stand again without pain. He also said I would need total joint replacement surgery on my knees and shoulders, in the future, to get back to an active lifestyle. To me, those were not acceptable options. There had to be another way.” Overwhelmed, Frank began searching for another solution. After a lot of research, Frank found Restoralife and began his journey with Regenerative Treatments.

Nonsurgical Treatment for Chronic Pain

It comes as no surprise that many chronic pain sufferers are looking to avoid the pain, downtime and potential health risks of invasive surgery. Today, regenerative medicine allows patients like Frank to do just that. “Many people are surprised to learn that chronic pain can often be treated without the use of steroidal injections, medications or surgery,” asserts Dr. Leyte. “A major benefit to this form of treatment is that it requires no downtime. Furthermore, surgery does not always fix the ‘pain’ problem. In fact, it could very well be a complicated process resulting in more pain. Many of our patients have experienced that exact scenario.” Fortunately for such patients, this cutting-edge technology is changing that.

Regenerative medicine is a unique approach to chronic pain treatment that harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities. Using a combination therapy approach, stem cells, platelet-rich plasma and laser therapy protocols are combined to address chronic pain at its source.

Regenerative techniques utilize healthy stem cells or cell based growth factors to repair and regrow damaged cartilage, ligaments, tendons, discs, bone, muscle, etc. When combined with platelet-rich plasma and deep-tissue laser therapy, the body’s ability to regenerate is further harnessed and accelerated. Rather than masking pain symptoms, regenerative medicine provides the body with the resources and environment necessary to heal the source of pain.

At RestoraLife, the mission is clear: “Our vision is that one day, regenerative treatments will take the place of most spine and joint surgeries. Our staff work diligently to create an environment where this vision is becoming reality for our patients,” states Nicole Hadjadj, CEO. For Frank, who was told he’d likely be on pain medication for the rest of his life, the treatments were “a life-saver.”

Alternative to Neck and Back SurgeryEnjoying Life Again

After his first week at RestoraLife, Frank began to feel a difference. “I started walking without my cane more often,” he recalls. “I got rid of it a month after starting treatment. Every week, I was feeling better and better. I really couldn’t believe it.” By his second month of treatment, Frank was feeling so much better, he decided to get back out on the green. He approached the team at Viera East Golf Club and began working part-time as a ranger. He even started going to the gym again — something he hadn’t been able to do in years.

Now, after two years of improved lifestyle from his spinal treatment, Frank is back at RestoraLife to have treatment on his knees and shoulders.  “For me, it was an easy decision. I want to keep my joints and avoid surgery. Two and a half years ago, I walked in here with a cane and RestoraLife gave me another lease on life.  Now I’m back because I want more out of life. I want to do as much as I can.”

Celebrating 5 Years

Restoralife Celebrates 5 Years of Helping People be free from pain and avoid Surgeries!!

As August approaches RestoraLife will hit its fifth year of treating chronic pain and injury with its treatment methods. Upon opening in 2013, Restorative Treatments were not well known, often misunderstood and typically thought of as “alternative medicine”. As the field of Regenerative Medicine has exploded, RestoraLife has continued to stay on the cutting edge of care and has even become a first choice for many healthcare providers and their families.

restoralife reviewsThe documented results and benefits of regenerative treatments over time have made it a popular option for relieving pain and recovering from injury.  It has also become a first line of treatment for almost all professional sports franchises to treat injured players and every day people are utilizing regenerative treatments to relieve pain and recover from chronic conditions or injuries. It’s easy to see that our society is moving towards using regenerative medicine to aid physical ailments and degeneration. Whether it’s hair loss, bone or nerve degeneration, aesthetic or even sexual dysfunction, regenerative medicine offers solutions.  In fact, the industry is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate of 33% over the next 7 years.  With the growing occurrence of chronic diseases, increases in government and private funding and the growth in the geriatric population, it’s easy to see this growth being achieved.

Over the past 5 years, the staff at RestoraLife has been dedicated to staying at the forefront of the regenerative medicine field and honing our treatment methods to be as safe and effective as possible.  During this time, we have helped thousands of patients avoid surgery, live with less pain and maintain the lifestyle they want.  We have not only seen patients improve physically, but we have witnessed the social and emotional gains that people experience when treated successfully.  Furthermore, these outcomes have been achieved using minimally invasive procedures that require no medications and no recovery time. The staff collectively agree that the most exciting part of our growth has been the return of former patients with new issues and the amount of referrals from friends and family of successfully treated patients.

As we reach this milestone, we would like to thank all of the patients we’ve had the pleasure of treating.  We would like to recognize the fact that they put their trust and quality of life in our hands.  There is no doubt that each patient and each condition has contributed to the betterment of RestoraLife and regenerative medicine as a whole. Many patients have come to us with little or no hope, and have given up with trying to find traditional medicines that work, finding themselves with little optimism for their future. RestoraLife is proud to have treated these individuals and honored to play a role in their recovery/healing process.

Regenerate natural function of your body

Regenerative medicine is the restorative process used to restructure and improve the function of damaged tissues, organs, joints, and nerves on a cellular level.

Over the past ten to twenty years the medical field has grown exponentially. Medications have been created and improved upon, surgeries are now being performed remotely and more recently, the world of regenerative medicine has exploded on the scene as a major player in the medical industry.  What was once considered experimental and controversial research has turned into a thriving industry that keeps pushing forward and breaking new ground.

Regenerative medicine is the restorative process used to restructure and improve the function of damaged tissues, organs, joints, and nerves on a cellular level. It has proven affective in treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, ranging from cervical/lumbar pain, to knees that are bone on bone, to something as simple as plantar fasciitis. Patients are treated using different cellular based therapies such as lasers, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), stem cells, prolotherapy, exosomes, etc.

Regenerative medicine can be administered for both preventative measures as well as existing conditions to help avoid surgeries, prescription pain pills, and steroid injections; all of which have the potential to further deteriorate your health long term. Why is that so important?

avoid-surgery-regenerative-medicineWhen a patient makes the decision to undergo surgery or receive injections they typically only focus on an isolated area of the body temporarily taking care of only a portion of the pain experienced. Key word being temporarily. By hyper-focusing on the “one” problem and not addressing the body as a whole, patients often find themselves back at square one, if not worse than before.  Regenerative medicine takes a systematic, long lasting, whole body approach to relieving pain, rather than treating and masking the symptoms only.  This approach allows the original source of the issue to be tracked down and treated along with the symptomatic issues.  For example, when a patient experiences SI Joint pain or discomfort, it will typically not only present itself only in the region of the joint, but also down the leg, tightening the IT band which can ultimately cause knee pain. Taking all of this into consideration, a treatment protocol can be created to ensure that the patient has been rid of both the referred pain and the primary source of pain.

It should be noted however, that regenerative medicine is not a drug, it is not an overnight fix, and it is not always right for every condition or individual.  It is an attempt to regenerate the natural state and function of your body.  So how does someone find out if regenerative medicine is right for him or her?  

With regenerative medicine now at an all time peak of discussion it is extremely important to become your own advocate and educate yourself on what these modalities can really do for you. We as a society have been conditioned to trust in initial diagnoses given with no hope. A primary example is the amount of knee and back surgeries that are done a year that could have been prevented by using regenerative medicine. There are numerous ways to become informed about this type of medicine; however, it is crucial to meet with a professional who is well educated on the matter. Setting up an appointment with an informed individual or even attending a seminar is a great way to obtain the knowledge so you can make an informed decision on what is right for you.

If you or a loved one are suffering from chronic pain and are looking for alternatives to prescription medications and surgeries, consider calling RestoraLife today.  RestoraLife takes pride in staying at the forefront of regenerative medicine and has successfully treated thousands of patients.  Call 321-610-1848 to RSVP for an upcoming Lunch & Learn Seminar or schedule your complimentary consultation.

One More Reason Why You Shouldn’t Put Up with Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is difficult to deal with no matter what age you are.

It’s the top reason why people end up on long-term disability. It lowers the quality of your life, making you give up your favorite activities and keeps you home-bound and lonely.

chronic painPain makes it difficult for you to get a good night of sleep. It often changes the personality of the pain victim, making him or her grumpy and sharp with family members.

You’ll do the best you can with the chronic pain you have. You’ll take pain medications that can cost $500/month or more, get to bed early, and eat a healthier diet … but often times, the pain is still there, day after day. It leaves you frustrated, desperate and wanting to give up.

And if that’s not bad enough, there’s one more thing that chronic pain causes that may surprise you: Chronic pain shrinks the brain 10% – equal to what happens from aging 10-20 years!

This was discovered in 2004 at Northwestern University when scientists found that chronic back pain – pain lasting six months or longer – isn’t just a figment of the imagination. It’s causing real damage.

It’s causing abnormal brain chemistry. More specifically, the parts of your brain needed for decision making, controlling social behavior, and assessing what’s happening with yourself and others emotionally are the parts that shrink. These parts of your brain are important parts for your ability to think.

That means if chronic pain is left to continue, you might expect a decrease in your IQ. Isn’t getting older hard enough – without suffering a corresponding decrease in IQ?

What Causes Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain can result from one of several causes: osteoarthritis, sciatica, stenosis, fracture of the vertebrae, or herniated disk. These may be accompanied by peripheral neuropathy, the loss of feeling of a leg and foot and loss of the feeling of where the foot actually is while walking. Peripheral neuropathy can result in falling, breaking a bone, and many new problems thereafter.

chronic back painHere’s an example of how chronic back pain destroyed the life of one man named Frank. He had osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, and fibromyalgia. He had a titanium plate in his neck at the level of the second cervical vertebrae down to the seventh cervical vertebrae. He rated his pain level at 7-8 most of the time, but sometimes it was at a level of 10 (This is where you want to die because the pain is so bad.).

He couldn’t sleep, couldn’t sit without help, couldn’t breathe properly at night unless sitting propped up in a chair. He couldn’t even dress himself. His doctor told him to double his pain medication.

Imagine the brain shrinkage that Frank was suffering from – as well as all the other problems that are from the chronic pain.

But by a stroke of good luck or good timing or whatever you want to attribute it to, Frank found out about RestoraLife’s new natural regenerative therapies. He then made a good decision that changed the entire course of his life.

After only two treatments, his pain started decreasing. Slowly his robotic movements due to chronic pain became more human-like and his real personality started shining through his daily behavior.

Now he’s pain-free. He doesn’t even use painkillers anymore. And he has successfully salvaged his brain from shrinking any further.

RestoraLife Regenerative Care, located in Melbourne, uses state-of-the-art therapeutic laser therapy combined with cell based therapy, concentrated Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and connective tissue treatments – all non-surgical and restorative without adding harmful medications.

Are the effects you’re experiencing from chronic pain worth a consultation?

Top Two Most Common Knee Injuries

Knees take a beating. Whether you are walking, jogging, or just performing everyday activities, you put pressure on your knees.

This revealing information is provided by —

Harvard Health Publications:
Let’s look at weight and your knees. When you walk on level ground, the force on your knees is the equivalent of 1½ times your body weight. That means a 200-pound person will put 300 pounds of pressure on their knees with each step. Add incline, and the pressure is even greater: the force on each knee is two to three times your body weight when you walk up and down stairs, and four to five times your body weight when you squat to tie a shoelace or pick up an item you dropped.

Our ability to withstand incredible forces on our knees can be exceeded and result in minor injuries, such as strains and sprains, or major injuries, such as torn ligaments, tendons, muscles or damage to cartilage. During Wimbledon 2017 The Championships, Bethany Mattock-Sands ruptured her patellar tendon. This is an excellent example of a fit, lean, professional athlete sustaining a debilitating injury.

Pre-existing joint damage from arthritis, trauma or anatomic abnormalities adds a further mechanical burden on normal joint function. Athletes will want to do everything they can to reduce the risk of injury and manage the risks they cannot eliminate. Weight reduction, flexibility/strength training, and sensible training habits are among the controllable risks.

What options do athletes who have active musculoskeletal problems have to reduce pain?

Let’s address two of the most common knee injuries: Osteoarthritis (also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, or DJD) and Patellar Tendonitis

1.) Osteoarthritis of the Knee

regenerative medicine osteoarthritisOsteoarthritis is a progressive and irreversible degenerative condition that can occur independent of trauma, overuse or the inevitable aging process. This type of joint inflammation usually involves large joints such as the spine, hips, and knees but can also be detected in smaller joints. The most severe forms of degenerative joint disease frequently leads to total joint replacement to control chronic pain. In the less severe forms, activity can result in severe pain and is usually eased by rest.
Athletes have reported that knee compression wraps and knee compression sleeves can improve functional movement and even reduce pain.

RestoraLife is giving chronic pain and arthritis sufferers new hope with Regenerative Medicine (Stem Cells, PRP, Laser Therapy). Results indicate improved cartilage growth and added mobility. Also, these revolutionary treatments stop the degenerative process in its tracks; keeping the OA condition from worsening.

 

 

 

2.) Patellar Tendonitis

Patellar TendonitisPatellar tendonitis, also know as Jumper’s Knee, is recognized as inflammation of the patellar tendon. This tendon attaches to the inferior patellar margin and the proximal tibia. This tendon is necessary to extend the knee and is used repetitively in endurance sports and explosively with jumping or sprinting sports. It’s important to emphasize that proper weight, strength and flexibility activities are essential to proper function.

Bands that are designed to assure proper alignment of the patellar tendon can reduce the side-to-side movement of the patella and the resultant improper mechanics. However, many devices apply posterior pressure on the tendon and patella and are uncomfortable to wear.

Stem Cells are a great option to avoid surgery and medications for pain caused by Patellar tendonitis. Stem Cells can heal and regrow tendons, muscles, bone and more. Stem cells will become any cell that the body needs, due to injury. When stem cells multiply, they are able to heal the body faster, naturally and more effectively than masking the pain with drugs or other devices.

If you or someone you know is suffering from chronic pain due to injury, call RestoraLife for a complimentary consultation to see which of our Regenerative Medicine treatments are best for you. (321) 610-1848

 

Regenerative Medicine Regenerates Earlier Dreams and Goals, Too

Regenerative Medicine Regenerates Earlier Dreams and Goals, Too

Each year you gain another year of wisdom but on the other hand, you may be losing ground with your body. You feel older and your joints aren’t as flexible as they once were. You move slower and your reaction times are not as fast simply because you know if you moved fast, you would hurt something!

You may wonder where your life is headed. How much decrease in quality of life will you experience before an answer shows up?

Regenerative Medicine RegeneratesDoctors Agree That Something Better Than Before is Here Now

Compassionate medical doctors feel your emotional pain, too – and have seen that the old ways of treating their patients via surgery, medications and physical therapy simply are not good enough anymore. They want to and finally can do something that has not previously been available – harness the power of your body to heal itself by giving it a boost with one of medicine’s finest advancements ever – one called regenerative medicine.

Regenerative medicine utilizes the earliest cell type in the body you had when you were a fetus growing in your mother’s womb called a stem cell. This stem cell has almost magical properties to it because it has the capability of turning into one of many different types of cells of the body’s muscles, bones and joints; skin or nervous system.

Once these cells are injected into the body, they get busy and start creating the new cells that are needed to regenerate the type of tissue that is damaged. These treatments are called cell-based treatments.

Besides cell based therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which contains growth factors to make cells grow big and strong, and laser therapy may also be used in the procedure. These additional two treatments enhance what the stem cells are doing.

Regenerative Medicine is Changing the World, One Dream at a Time

No matter what your age is, the new regenerative medicine processes have proven that tissues are renewed or regenerated. Those who have had pain previously in a shoulder, SI joint, knee joint or vertebrae of the spine and decide on the regenerative medicine approach are consistently reporting results not seen before without surgery. They have greater range of motion, a significant reduction in pain, and perhaps best of all – they are changing their old stagnant plans of staying home and on the couch to plans that make their dreams come true.

Sometimes their dreams are simple ones like tossing a football with the grandchildren but other times they are even grander, such as running a marathon, getting remarried, and traveling the world.

Check in with your own dreams and what’s going on in your body. Is there a mismatch?

Stem Cells Become Any Cell

Stem Cells will become any cell needed in the body to repair painful or injured areas

Stem cells are incredibly special because they have the potential to become any kind of cell in the body. This fascinating ability to transform and divide has made stem cells a rich source in repairing damaged tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. When a stem cell divides, each “daughter” cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, liver cell, nerve cell or cardiac cell.

Stem Cells Become Any CellStem Cells Responsible for building and maintaining the human body

RestoraLife’s cell-based protocols are available for anyone experiencing chronic pain as a result of aging or injury. As we age, our bodies lose muscle mass, strength and cell regeneration. Our vital organs begin to lose some function as you age during adulthood. Aging changes occur in all of the body’s cells, tissues, and organs, and these changes affect the functioning of all body systems. Living tissue is made up of cells. And like us, our cells do not live forever. Most of the cells in our bodies today were not with us when we were born. Cells can split only a limited number of times. For example, fibroblasts, the collagen-producing skin cells, typically divide about 50 times. Once a cell reaches this end point, it enters a stage in which it no longer divides and finally dies. When the cell receives certain chemical signals that its time is up, the cell switches on a program called apoptosis that leads to the cell’s death. In other words, a cell that learns its time has come.

This being said, we harvest healthy cells from a donor and inject them into the injured area which boosts your body’s ability to heal again. Stem cells differ from other kinds of cells in the body. All stem cells—regardless of their source—have three general properties: they are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are not modified for a particular purpose or function and give rise to specialized cell types.

Chronic pain – #1 cause of long-term disability

Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined — Regenerative Medicine can help

chronic pain sufferersPain is cited as the most common reason Americans access the health care system. It is a leading cause of disability and it is a major contributor to health care costs.According to the National Center for Health Stati stics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. The diversity of pain conditions requires a diversity of research and treatment approaches.
Pain can be a chronic disease, a barrier to cancer treatment, and can occur alongside other diseases and conditions (e.g. depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury).

For infants and children, pain requires special attention, particularly because they are not always able to describe the type, degree, or location of pain they are experiencing. Discoveries of differences in pain perceptions and responses to treatment by gender has have led to new directions for research on the experience and relief of pain. For example, medications called kappa-opioids provide good relief from acute pain in women, yet increase pain in men. NIH-supported scientists identified a gene variant of an enzyme that reduces sensitivity to acute pain and decreases the risk of chronic pain.

COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) is a major contributor to pain associated with inflammation. A study of genes affected by COX-2 led to the discovery of its role in connection to multiple cellular pathways that contribute to pain relief and adverse side-effects. Behavioral interventions for pain also demonstrate promise for providing pain relief either in conjunction with or in lieu of drug interventions. For example, NIH-supported research has demonstrated that individualized pain management programs may reduce cancer pain for some patients.

Unlike acute pain, which lasts temporarily, chronic pain is persistent and the pain signals continue for weeks, months or even years.

The definition of chronic pain is broad, and is generally defined as ‘any pain lasting for more than 12 weeks.’  Chronic pain has a lot of causes, ranging from initial injury or ongoing illness. There may also be no clear cause. As a result, chronic pain can be very hard to treat and can have negative impacts on patients’ lifestyles. If you or a loved one suffer from chronic pain, you are not alone.

We bring you key facts and statistics related to who is affected by chronic pain, its costs and how to manage it:

1) More than half of all adults in the United States have experienced chronic or recurrent pain in the past year.

2) Four most common types of chronic pain are:

  1. Low back pain (27%)
  2. Severe headache or migraine pain (15%)
  3. Neck pain (15%)
