LASTING PAIN RELIEF

STEM CELL, LASER and PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Real Testimonials (See Below). Real Patients. Real Success!

Regenerative Medicine empowers the body to repair and regenerate itself whether the patient is suffering from arthritis, back, neck, knee, shoulder or hip pain, nerve conditions and even extreme conditions like fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy. Regardless of what chronic pain condition a patient may be suffering from, these new cell-based treatments relieve pain and accelerate natural healing processes already occurring in the body.

Regenerative Medicine’s rapidly advancing field is called Orthobiologics which is simply the use of the body’s naturally occurring, healing mechanisms which are biomaterials and include your platelets and stem cells to help injuries and disease conditions heal quickly.

By extracting and concentrating these biomaterials, a clinician can then deliver these healing materials directly to diseased or injured areas thereby providing a means to stimulate the body’s repair process. The healing triggered by this process can often prevent or delay the need for surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, called PRP, is an orthobiologic solution for treating a large variety chronic pain conditions including ligament, tendon and joint injuries, arthritis and most other areas of chronic pain. Platelets are partial cells that are found in blood stream that not only help stop bleeding, but also contain growth factors that the body uses to repair damaged tissues. These growth
factors play an important role in accelerating the healing of soft tissue injuries. The goal of PRP therapy is to increase the rate of repair and regeneration of tissue by providing a highly concentrated volume of your own platelets that could never happen without the use of this advanced technique.

The area of orthobiologics that is growing that fastest and showing the most promise is the use of stem cells and other similar cell-based treatments. Stem cells help to maintain the body’s continuous cycle of regeneration, repair and healing. As the body ages, the concentration of stem cells found in the body diminishes. As the stem cell concentration diminishes, it becomes increasingly difficult for the body to recover from injury. Similar to the techniques used in PRP, stem cells and the other cell-based biomaterials can by extracted, concentrated and delivered by a clinician into areas of chronic pain that need help. These building blocks provided at higher concentrations that can occur naturally due to the aging process are capable of advanced reconstruction, restoration and revitalization.

The popularity of these advanced regenerative treatments is growing quickly as patients now have alternative approaches to try that are minimally invasive, require no down time like a surgery and also do not include the risks associated with surgeries.

Exercise Better Than Rest for Sciatica Pain

Back Pain and Sciatica

causes-sciaticaSciatica is the term used to define the pain in the lower extremity, resulting from the irritation of the sciatic nerve. This nerve extends from the lower back or lumbar area down the back of the legs, so the pain is typically felt in the low back region, as well as behind the thighs and right below the knee.

Because the sciatic nerve sends endings to the lower limbs, when it becomes irritated, the pain is accompanied by a burning and tingling sensation down the legs, weakness and difficulty moving your foot or leg, and constant pain in the lower body, on the side of the affected nerve. The pain usually gets worse when sitting, but standing up can also be a problem due to the shooting pain which occurs when there is pressure on the legs.

People with lumbar spinal stenosis, those with spondylolisthesis or degenerative disc disease are more likely to suffer from sciatica, but the condition is likely to occur in pregnant women as well, due to the increasing load and pressure exerted by the growing belly. Overweight (20 pounds over recommended weight) people and those with weak muscles in the back and legs are also more prone to this condition than those with a normal BMI range / weight, and who regularly practice physical activity.

Although in most cases sciatica pain goes away after bed rest and stretching exercises, 10% to 15% of people dealing with this condition will be told they require surgery for easing the pain. Avoid Surgery with Regenerative Medicine (Stem Cells, PRP, Laser Therapy)

Sciatica pain occurs more often in people with degenerative arthritis of the lumbar spine, in those with lumbar disc disease and injuries in the lower back area, the most common cause of this health problem being the herniation of lumbar discs that press directly on the sciatic nerve. The constant pressure and the friction cause irritation to the sciatic nerve, triggering the previously mentioned symptoms.

Still, the cause of inflammation in the low back area can reproduce the signs of sciatica, so for example if one has an abnormal inter-vertebral disc, which compresses the nerve, this can also generate sciatica. Irritation of the muscles in the lower back, injuries or infections of the bones and muscles in that region can trigger sciatica and worsen the already present pain.

Without any doubt a disturbing condition, sciatica can be more than an irritating problem that prevents one from performing certain movements. This pain can become very intense and debilitating, interfering with one’s ability to sit down or stand for longer periods of time. Moving from one point to another can also become difficult when the pain is intense, as sciatica causes lower extremity weakness and numbness in the legs as well. Stem Cells regenerate healthy cells able to heal the inflamed areas.

back pain exercisesThree different approaches can be implemented when it comes to treating sciatica pain: rest, exercises and regenerative medicine.

Although somehow counter-intuitive, exercises actually help more with relieving the pain than bed rest, as they address the potential underlying causes of pain. Inactivity on the other hand can make the muscles even stiffer and worsen the pain, especially if the patient has to spend prolonged periods of time in a position that causes pressure on the nerve.
What type of exercises are the best for coping with sciatica? Mainly those targeting the back muscles, as these help in restoring the spinal structure, and conditioning the core muscles in order to offer proper support for the spine. Besides conditioning the muscles, exercises also improve the blood flow and the delivery of nutrients to the spinal discs, so they can help in preventing the pressure exerted on the nerve by damage discs.

Typically, a self-recovery program for sciatica should include exercises that target the abdomen and back muscles, such as light strength and stretching exercises, meant to relax and to make the tight and inflexible muscles more elastic. As studies have shown, core stability exercises are more effective in decreasing the pain and improving the physical function in patients with chronic low back pain, so these might also be efficient in sciatica.

Hamstring stretching exercises can also help, as overly tight hams can put more pressure on the sciatic nerve, making the symptoms worse.

Light aerobic exercises can be beneficial in relieving the pain and walking is a good option. It’s recommended for patients with sciatica to avoid intense workouts and cardio training sessions that involve exercises of high impact, such as jumping.

Still, keep in mind that before engaging in a recovery program, you should get properly diagnosed, as the type of exercises you can perform depends on the trigger of your symptoms. Also, it’s very important to do the exercises under supervision, at least until you learn how to perform them correctly, as neglecting form can worsen this condition and make the exercises ineffective.

Miracle Molecule A2M Stops Osteoarthritis

stages-osteoarthritis-kneeA2M protein successfully decreases pain and controls cartilage degeneration, caused by
Osteoarthritis.

A2M has emerged as a 5-star treatment of cartilage-based pathology and inflammatory arthritis because of its ability to bait and trap inflammatory mediators. In other words, A2M can stop the ongoing inflammation that causes arthritis. A2M (Alpha-2-Macroglobulin) is a newly discovered compound that acts as a powerful inhibitor of cartilage breakdown.  A2M is a master enzyme inhibitor that exists in your blood.  It attaches to and removes the destructive proteins in the joint. It is concentrated from plasma using a unique filtration process. New formulations of A2M can even more precisely target molecular pathways of disk disease. Musculoskeletal conditions causing pain are found very common, making up a large percentage of physician visits each year.

Musculoskeletal pathology, however, can be generally divided into the following categories:

1. Intra-articular joint pain
•• Intra-articular joint pain is most commonly attributed to idiopathic osteoarthritis
2. Extra-articular pain
3. Spinal intervertebral (discogenic) pain

The application of A2M is distinct from other autologous treatments, because its development is firmly grounded in a proposed mechanism of action based on understanding of cartilage pathology and inflammatory pain.

osteoarthritis-kneeA2M Molecule

If you or a loved one suffers from debilitating joint pain, you may suspect osteoarthritis (OA). Osteoarthritis is a type of joint disease that results in the breakdown and destruction of cartilage. Cartilage is the connective tissue located between the bones and joints that helps maintain smooth and painless movement.

Damage to cartilage happens mechanically through physical damage, as well as biochemically. There are enzymes (commonly proteins) in your body that accelerate the breakdown of your cartilage. They are called proteases. These enzymes are difficult to remove from your joints. In addition, this type of damage is very challenging for your body to repair or restore naturally because cartilage is “avascular” – meaning it doesn’t have a blood supply to provide vital proteins, growth factors and cells for tissue regeneration.

Activating the Body’s Healing Power with a Miracle Molecule

A2M (Alpha-2-Macroglobulin) is a newly discovered compound that acts as a powerful inhibitor of cartilage breakdown.  A2M is a master protease inhibitor that exists in your blood.  It attaches to and removes the destructive proteins in the joint.
This special molecule works by binding the chemicals (proteases) that degrade the cartilage cells and tissue.
A patented and proprietary filtration process has been developed that can concentrate the naturally occurring A2M molecule in your blood up to 6X. This process allows therapeutic injections in concentrated dosages that:
•    Boost natural healing by reducing the additional deterioration of cartilage
•    Support tissue growth with naturally occurring compounds from your own blood

Early Treatment = Better Recoverya2m-osteoarthritis

A2M is a very exciting advancement in orthopedic science resulting from years of osteoarthritis research. The earlier identifying signals of joint destruction are discovered, the less invasive treatments will be. Early treatments can postpone the need the need for more aggressive and costly joint reconstruction or replacement surgery. So take control of your heath and contact us to see whether this breakthrough in orthopedic medicine, A2M, is right for your condition.

stem cellsWhat are Stem Cells?
Simply put, stem cells are the building blocks from which all parts of a human body are grown. All organs within the body and all types of tissue are created from these undifferentiated cells.

Why have Stem Cell treatments become so popular?
Stem Cell treatments also known as cellular treatments have become increasingly popular as more studies show positive outcomes for many different conditions and diseases. Stem Cells are being used widely in medicine to treat many things from Osteoarthritis to Leukemia. The types of cells used vary widely, however, scientific evidence has shown they have great regenerative power. Regenerative power simply means that these cells are capable of growing and repairing damaged tissue. These treatment advancements have paved the way for the hugely popular new field of Regenerative Medicine.

What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissue and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that traditional medications and surgical approaches have failed.
Regenerative Medicine is a completely unique approach to traditional options. The focus of this approach is that the human body has always been capable of healing itself; unfortunately, whether due to age, injury or chronic disease conditions, the natural healing mechanisms of the body become less and less effective. Regenerative medicine boosts your body’s natural ability to heal, replaces damaged cells with healthy cells, and regenerates tissue.

Why is Regenerative Medicine so important to the field of chronic pain?
Regenerative treatments have shown a great deal of success in helping to heal bone, damaged nerves, worn joints and soft tissue damage. According to research, this is done by stimulating regeneration in damaged tissue that would not regrow or repair by itself. Everyone from athletes to chronic pain sufferers are seeking this option to be functional again.

stem cells pre and postThe primary benefits of this technology include a reduction in pain and an increase in function and mobility with little or no downtime.
As such, Regenerative Medicine has quickly become a primary alternative to physical therapy, medications, steroid injections and surgery. Restoralife Regenerative Care (located in Melbourne, FL) specializes in this exciting new field of medicine, utilizing cellular therapies along with other state of the art techniques to treat injury and chronic pain.The Restoralife patient ranges from those that are active and don’t want to have the downtime to patients that have been suffering for years.

Who is a candidate for Regenerative Therapies?
All Restoralife patients are unique, but their reasons for seeking help tend to share many common elements. They do not want to be on medications, they are trying to avoid surgery, surgery did not help or the most prevalent reason; their patients have a feeling with today’s modern medicine that there has to be a better way. “Toxic medications and risky surgeries just can’t be the only option.” stated Frank D. of Viera.During the interview it was apparent Frank had many of the typical patient issues and had been frustrated with the traditional system. He walked in to Restoralife with quite a complex case. He had severe neck and back pain along with degenerative osteoarthritis in many of his joints. Frank had already had both hips replaced and was facing similar surgeries to address the arthritis in his other joints. However, what concerned him most was his spine.
Frank had been told for 15 or more years that the only way to treat his neck and back pain was through several multi-level spinal fusions. “I had talked to too many people that had these surgeries only to end up with worsened pain or back in the operating room time after time. I remained hopeful that a better way would present itself to me,” stated Frank.

One afternoon while talking to a neighbor and friend, that hope for a new treatment option grew. “My friend Bob was told he would need a knee replacement, but wanted to avoid surgery at all cost. During a previous arthroscopic repair on his knee, which he was led to believe was a very simple procedure, he developed a blood clot. The complications of that surgery convinced Bob that a total knee replacement was not a good option for him.”
Bob had decided to try a combination therapy approach at Restoralife consisting of stem cells and laser treatments. When we spoke, several weeks after his treatment began; he was already seeing huge benefits. According to Frank, immediately after hearing his story, he called and scheduled a consultation for himself.

It has now been several months since Frank began the treatments on his spine. He stated that he is back to working part-time on the golf course and enjoying life in ways he could not before. “I know I am still healing, I can feel it. Bob and I discuss regularly that we can actually feel the changes and healing occurring. This is the hope I was holding out for. Now it is just a matter of time before I address my knees and shoulders.” said Frank with a look of joy on his face.

Regenerative Treatments Giving Pain Patients New Hope

For those who are battling chronic pain, it has often seemed like there was no hope. The traditional medical path for treating chronic pain has left many sufferers feeling trapped, as those traditional pain management techniques often are just not enough to relieve those who are suffering.

There is a new generation of clinicians focusing on a different direction for treating chronic pain. Currently, medicine focuses on minimally effective, potentially toxic drugs, short-lasting steroid injections or surgeries that offer no guarantees.  With regenerative treatment, the patient is given options that are more based on healing the source not the symptoms.

This new direction has been coined Regenerative Medicine and it’s a completely unique approach to the traditional orthopedic options because the whole focus is that the human body has always been capable of healing itself, unfortunately, as we age and injure or wind up with chronic disease conditions, sometimes those healing mechanisms that we all have need help to function properly.

The goal of Regenerative Medicine is uncover which of your body’s natural healing mechanisms are in need of restoration or revitalization and find a science-based technologically-advanced treatment option that will enable your body to do what it already knows how to do, heal itself.  There are 3 main healing mechanisms that focus on the processes of replacing and regenerating human cells and tissues to restore or re-establish normal function. These mechanisms are cell division, platelets and stem cells.

Once a clinician determines which healing mechanism needs help, restoration is promoted through the use of cell-based treatments and biomaterials.  These substances are naturally found in the body and when used in high concentrations, can drastically speed up the healing process.  Regenerative Medicine can be used for the management and healing of many orthopedic conditions including sports injuries.

regenerative-medicineRegenerative Medicine empowers the body to repair and regenerate itself whether it is arthritis, back, neck, knee, shoulder or hip pain, nerve conditions and even extreme conditions like fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy. Regardless of what chronic pain condition a patient may be suffering from, these new cell-based treatments relieve pain and accelerate natural healing processes already occurring in your body.

Regenerative Medicine’s quickly growing and rapidly advancing field is called Orthobiologics which is simply the use of the body’s naturally occurring healing mechanisms which are biomaterials and include your platelets and stem cells to help injuries and disease conditions heal quickly.

By extracting and concentrating these biomaterials, a clinician can be deliver these healing materials directly to diseased or injured areas thereby providing a means to stimulate the repair process and replenish the dead or dying cells. The healing triggered by this process can often prevent or delay the need for surgery.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, called PRP, is an orthobiologic solution for treating a large variety chronic pain conditions including ligament, tendon and joint injuries, arthritis and most other areas of chronic pain.  Platelets are partial cells that are found in blood that not only help stop bleeding, but also contain growth factors that the body uses to repair damaged tissues.  These growth factors play an important role in accelerating the healing of soft tissue injuries.  The goal of PRP therapy is to increase the rate of repair and regeneration of tissue by providing a highly concentrated volume of your own platelets that could never happen without the use of this advanced technique.

The area of orthobiologics that is growing that fastest and showing the most promise is the use of stem cells and other similar cell-based treatments that work with stem cells.  Stem cells help to maintain the body’s continuous cycle of regeneration, repair and healing.  As the body ages, the concentration of stem cells found in the body diminishes.  As the stem cell concentration diminishes, it becomes increasingly difficult for the body to recover from injury.  Similar to the techniques used in PRP, stem cells and the other cell-based biomaterials can by extracted, concentrated and delivered by a clinician into areas of chronic pain that need help. These building blocks provided at higher concentrations that can occur naturally due to the aging process are capable of advanced reconstruction and revitalization.

The popularity of these advanced regenerative treatments is growing quickly as patients now have an alternative approach to try that is minimally invasive, requires no down time like a surgery and also does not include the risks associated with surgeries.

If you are suffering from chronic pain and are looking for alternatives for prescription medications and surgeries, research in your area for a regenerative medicine clinic that specializes in advanced orthobioligic techniques.

Restoralife Regenerative Care is one such clinic serving the Brevard County communities since 2013. They pride themselves at staying at the forefront of the Regenerative Medicine Field and offer weekly Lunch & Learn Seminars to educate people with pain and/or injuries on the exciting new options for lasting pain relief using the latest and most advanced, science based treatment options.

 

 

 

Ultimate Guide to PRP Injections for Sports

Ultimate Guide to PRP Injections for Sports and Common Related Injuries

prp for tennis elbowPRP Injection For Tennis Elbow: 5 Quick Tips

Contrary to the popular belief, Tennis Elbow is not something only tennis players suffer from. Factually speaking, only 5% of patients suffering from the condition are tennis players. Others affected are painters, plumbers, butchers, and carpenters. This happens when the tendon in the elbow area called the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis (ECRB), which is quite susceptible to overuse, IS overused. A tendon is a tough, but flexible, band of fibrous tissue that forms a very strong connection between a muscle and bone. When the muscle contracts, pulling on the tendon causes the bone to move. To make sure the movement is precise, the tendons are stretched very tightly and more prone to injuries.

Common Treatments For Tennis Elbow

First tier treatments include rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen and physical therapy. In most cases, a combination of the three can calm down the tendon.

Using a brace to severely restrict the movement of your elbow.

Steroid injections – these are rapid-action anti-inflammatory medicines. More and more research nowadays the use of these injections as they tend to contain the injury by shutting down healing (which is not beneficial in the long term.)
Ultrasound shock wave therapy – Sound waves shake up the tendon area triggering fresh new inflow of blood causing healing to happen.

PRP Injection For Tennis Elbow

PRP Injections may be considered first tier treatment for athletes. And, because the substance for the injections is taken directly from the patient’s blood, there are no side effects. Theoretically, there’s no limit to the number of injections you can have. But, always check with your doctor.

The process is simple: PRP consists of extracting approximately 20cc blood from the patient’s arm, placing the blood in a specially designed tube. The next protocol: Spin blood a centrifuge. Once the spinning is complete, you’ll have your Platelet-Rich Plasma which you can inject into the knee, elbow or affected area. The only downfall, at this time, is that PRP is not currently covered by insurance companies. This is because traditional medical frowns upon natural remedies because it heals you and does not keep you sick, hence making you return for further, expensive treatments.

The very last alternative is surgery. It’s covered by insurance. But the results are not always promising there are a large number of people that go through surgery and continue to suffer with pain and the need for further surgeries.


PRP Injection For Plantar Fasciitis: The Ultimate Guide

Plantar Fasciitis, also known as jogger’s heel, affects nearly 3 million people in the US every year. Jogger’s heel is one of the most common causes for foot pain.

Runners are the most affected, as it can put a complete stop to your running and more importantly, by restricting your movement. Avoiding running and walking seems to worsen this painful condition. Instead, treating the source of the pain at the early stages is your best option.
A variety of treatments are available and some of the time patients are able to self-treat it in the comfort of their own home. Stretching and rest reduce pain and inflammation.

PRP Treatments is are particularly effective and straight forward. Plus the effects are found to be lasting for more than a year according to studies. As it involves using your own blood for healing, there’s no risk of side effects. The reason why it works well for plantar fasciitis is that ligaments like the plantar fascia usually only have a limited amount of blood supply at their disposal. So when you receive a PRP treatment into the ligament, it gets a month’s worth of “blood nutrient” supply in a day, and this causes fast healing.

Here’s the procedure: PRP Injection for Plantar Fasciitis

1. Blood is drawn from your arm just like a regular blood test and spun it in a centrifuge to extract PRP.
2. Once you’ve isolated the PRP, it can be directly injected into the plantar fascia.
3. Final step is to practice limited movements for two weeks to give the PRP time to work its’ magic.

*Many patients are 100% amazed by the relief they experience after their PRP Injection.


prp for osteoarthritisIt’s A Shame If You Haven’t Tried PRP Before Surgery, For Osteoarthritis.

Almost 600,000 people seek treatment for Osteoarthritis here in the US every year. Half of these patients are experiencing knee pain. Our nation spends more than $150 billion dollars for the treatment. Unfortunately, knee experts (mostly surgeons) believe that there’s no cure for knee degeneration. They believe knee-replacement is the only option. Is this true? NOPE … Let’s take a look.

What is Osteoarthritis And How to treat it?

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the knee. It is a degenerative “wear and tear” type of arthritis that can affect people of all ages. It results when cartilage in the knee wear out. The natural solution to this problem is to repair the cartilage. Except that surgeons believe there’s no solution that can repair and renew cartilage in the joints especially knee and hip. Or is there?
A report from Bioresearch Foundation of Milan, Italy, shows us – THERE IS – and it’s called  Platelet-Rich Plasma.

PRP for Osteoarthritis

The guys from Bioresearch Foundation conducted a 2-year study on 93 patients with advancing osteoarthritis — meaning they were the kind of candidates that opted for arthroscopic surgery. The researchers then administered a simple course of 3 monthly PRP injections instead of surgery.
A total of 119 knees were treated. After 12 months, they randomly increased the dosage of 50 patients to 6 monthly injections.
The results were this: All of the patients experienced significant improvement in pain, mobility and disability score — this was tested throughout and after the 24 months. Of the 50 patients who had 6 monthly injections of PRP after month 12, enjoyed even more improvement. Surgery was absolutely unnecessary for all subjects by this point.

What does this say?

It’s simply stated the title of this blog post: it’s a shame to not try PRP before surgery.
Consider a knee or hip replacement very cautiously. Sometimes, worn out cartilage isn’t the cause of the pain as shown by the famous Framingham study group in the New England Journal of Medicine. Even though MRI’s will show cartilage wear and tear, most people have this as a result of normal degeneration. In addition, for a good number of patients, their results after surgery is far less that what the patients at Bioresearch foundation had after Platelet-Rich Plasma injections — it’s not uncommon for patients to experience more pain after their surgery.

PRP for Athletes featured on FOX Sports for speedy recovery

Fox_Sports_PRP_AthletesAthletes like Kobe Bryant and Brandon Roy use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in hopes of extending their athletic careers.

Whether you are a baseball, basketball, football or tennis player, PRP can help get you back on the playing field or court. Many athletes suffer from normal wear and tear, known as inflammation, joint pain and sprains, as a result of impact. If left unattended, these acute pains will turn into chronic pain. Once chronic pain sets in, there is a higher risk of being out of the game for an extended period of time, if not forever.

In Branon Roy’s case: he retired because of persistent issues in both knees. After six knee operations, there was no cartilage left is his joints. The Trail Blazers team doctors told Roy that he should not continue playing and if he did, there would be painful, long-term effects.

One short year later, Roy announced his athletic comeback. Many pro basketball teams have expressed interest in signing him.

Platelet-Rich-Plasma-Fox-Sports-AthletesThat’s quite a turnaround for a player who was told that playing basketball may cause painful difficulties walking later in life. So, what was the miracle drug that healed him? His turnaround was too drastic. It was NO DRUG — it was platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

PRP therapy is a natural pain relief process by which a small quantity of blood is extracted from the patient. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge and spun until it separates the blood and healthy cells (platelets). Next, the platelets are removed and injected back into the patient at the injured area, saturating the surrounding area with injections for maximum relief. The growth factors in PRP platelets promote healing and tissue regeneration, speeding the healing process.

At RestoraLife™, our clinicians have tested and approved a revolutionary process – combining PRP with Laser and/or Stem Cells to provide an even better response to cure acute or chronic pain! RestoraLife is the first pain management clinic in FL and the US to offer these elite protocols together. Don’t let downtime or medication get in the way of your athletic abilities. Your career is important; your long-term health is more important.
