Regenerative Medicine » The Journey Back to Health and Wellness

RestoraLife, formerly known as Laser Pain Care, now offers PRP Injections, Stem Cell Treatments and Tx360 along with Laser Pain Treatments to provide the most effective, advanced medical practices; managing and eliminating the most difficult and chronic pain conditions.

Throughout the years you may have read information about the laser therapy offered by Laser Pain Care. Laser Pain Care, a local medical facility, has successfully treated everything from minor acute wounds and injuries to the most complex pain injuries, including the spine and neck, with the use of non-invasive therapy lasers. The clinic’s success rates have been astounding. Laser Pain Care has helped people recover from the pain from one or more failed surgeries as well as help people avoid surgery in general.  , Their patient population is full of the worst of worst pain patients suffering with such severe pain that many are unable to live a normal life.

PRPSince its inception, Laser Pain Care has continued to search for cutting edge regenerative technologies (similar to the laser) to further help patients win the battle associated with severe and chronic pain conditions. About a year ago, the company’s owners were introduced to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and Stem Cell Treatments. After extensive research and education, the clinic started implementing these two new treatment options. The results were so dramatic that the clinic has refocused its direction from an exclusive laser therapy clinic to a regenerative medicine clinic. Due to this shift in treatment options, the name Laser Pain Care no longer did the medical facility justice. This paradigm shift lead to the company changing their name to RestoraLife.  RestoraLife better communicates these new multi-faceted treatment options available in the regenerative medicine field.

Regenerative Medicine is a game-changing area for the health and medical community for the treatment of chronic conditions. There are three interrelated approaches to regenerative medicine: Rejuvenation, Replacement and Regeneration. Rejuvenation means boosting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Replacement involves using healthy cells to replace damaged ones. Regeneration involves delivering specific types of cells or cell products to damaged areas to facilitate restoration.  The core focus is based around the concept that the human body is capable of healing itself. if the environment of healing can be created, the body’s own healing powers can be harnessed and super-charged.

Stem cells are unspecialized cells with the potential to develop into any type of cell. They are essentially unassigned soldier cells waiting to be called into action. Stem Cells help heal areas of injury or illness by rebuilding and repairing damaged tissue. According to RestoraLife, we all have stem cells waiting to jump to action when help is needed in the body. With age and injury, there is a gradual decline in the regenerative properties of most tissues due to a combination of age-dependent changes in the tissue-specific stem cells and in the environmental cues that promote those cells to participation in tissue maintenance and repair. Sometimes, due to our age or extent of injury, our own stem cells just don’t have the horsepower to get the job done. Since we are all only as good as our stem cells, we need help and now it can come in the form of several types of stem cell procedures.

Stem Cells can be injected into most areas of damaged tissue (the cause chronic pain) including but not limited to shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, feet/ankles, low back and cervical (neck) areas. Stem Cells and PRP Treatments both work by assisting your body’s natural healing ability to repair tissues, reduce pain and make you healthier. They can be used for treatments ranging from minor injuries to the most severe chronic conditions.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy is the process in which a clinician uses the patient’s own blood to create a super-charged natural healing serum. The process is quite simple: blood is drawn from the patient, spun in a centrifuge and then once the platelets are separated from the blood components, the clinician injects the PRP into the area needing repair and the body does the rest. PRP injections aim to embrace and stimulate the inflammatory process, which in turn encourages the healing process. PRP focuses on restoring normal tissue compositions while avoiding further degeneration.

PRP can be used to treat musculoskeletal injuries including but not limited to: Tennis elbow (common extensor tendinitis), Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinitis), Achilles tendinitis, Plantar fasciitis, Hamstring tendons, Adductor tendons, Gluteal tendons, Muscles (including but not limited to the hamstring, calf and quadriceps), Bursitis, Knee tendon tears, osteoarthritis of the joint (even if the patient has been told the joint is bone-on-bone. RestoraLife also uses PRP to treat wounds and for cosmetic purposes.

Laser Therapy has been shown in clinical studies and real world applications generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue commonly believed to change the condition of the damaged tissue by stimulating cellular metabolism which thereby stimulates the body’s healing process.  RestoraLife’s lasers are the most advanced available on the market, FDA-cleared, non-invasive, pain free and have no known adverse effects. Lasers are able to target underlying causes of acute and chronic pain and have the ability to reduce and eliminate shallow and deep tissue and nerve conditions. They can be used on their own, as a form of therapy for chronic pain or to photo-activate (jumpstart) the PRP and/or stem cells.

“I walked into RestoraLife on a cane with a heavy does of skepticism. I was suffering with severe pain in my neck and low back. I could not walk for more than 10 feet without excruciating pain. Within three weeks of my injection cocktail and laser treatments, I was off my cane and able to walk again with no pain. I find myself dancing into the office.” – Michael W.

“As a man that served my whole career in the military, I had many untreated injuries. I came into RestoraLife with several problems; however, I decided to only have my sciatica treated because I was unsure of this technology. After my full round of treatments, I was 100% better. This urged me to have them treat my neck and shoulders that have also been damaged for years. I am so happy I never chose to have surgery. After receiving stem cells, PRP and laser therapy, I am feeling like a new man!” – Denis H.

“After seeing three orthopedic surgeons, I was very discouraged. I had a frozen shoulder and was told I would not get any range of motion back without shoulder replacement surgery. I came into the consultation with very little hope; however afterwards, I was quite optimistic. Three to four weeks after receiving stem cells, PRP and laser treatments, I had 75 to 80% range of motion back in my shoulder and was back to working out 4 times a week. I feel like RestoraLife has given me my active life back and I was able to completely avoid surgery.” – John G.

“Before treatment with RestoraLife, I was seeing half my patient load daily, receiving epidural injections and botox for migraines associated with my cervical condition. After receiving treatment, I am no longer utilizing any other forms of medical treatments. I am back to seeing my full load of patients and I am happy to be able to work out at the gym again”  – Dr. Andrew S.

RestoraLife is focused on finding and implementing the latest technologies available that fall into the regenerative health and medicine framework.  The latest examples of that effort are the introduction of Stem Cell and PRP injections that have become the gold standard for treating professional athletes with acute and chronic pain conditions. Now that phenomenal technology has been made available to Brevard County’s mainstream population including everyone from weekend warriors to the elderly with a long history of pain conditions.  If you are interested in learning how they can help you, RestoraLife has an upcoming educational seminar on Wednesday, September 30th at noon at Brano’s in Cocoa Beach. Call their office at (321) 610 – 1848 to reserve your spot today, as seating is limited. They are also offering free consultations for a limited time.

Combining of stem cell, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and laser therapy

restoralife laser stem cell prp testimonial melbourne fl“After being told by 3 orthopedic surgeons that I would not be able to move my shoulder without a full shoulder replacement, I became very concerned. I knew I did not want the surgery, but didn’t think I had an option. My shoulder was completely stuck in place and I could not raise my arm or move it at all. My consultation at Restoralife gave me new hope. I was told with a combination of stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and laser therapy, they believed they could help me avoid surgery. After 6 weeks of treatment, I have 75 to 80% range of motion and am back to working out 4 times a week. If I am ever told I need to have surgery again, Restoralife will be my first stop.”    – Mr. G, Viera FL

Headaches, Trigenimal Neuralgia Pain | Tx360 Pain Relief

Trigeminal Neuralgia Tx360 for painRestoraLife™ preformed our first Tx360 pain relief procedure today. A Trigeminal Neuralgia patient left pain free after years of suffering. We have a long road with her, but she is beginning to respond. Being able to treat these patients that suffer from “the suicide condition” is an honor. It is not easy and they come in with very little hope, but we give it our all. In May 2015, we had two patients come in with moderate to severe atypical Trigeminal Neuralgia and they NO longer have pain!! Tx360 is just another tool in our non surgical, non invasive, pain management arsenal.

Platelet-Rich Plasma: Implications for Wound Healing

Growth Factor Analysis (PRP Injections): Growth factors released from activated platelets initiate and modulate wound healing in both soft and hard tissues. The concentration of growth factors also increased with increasing platelet number.

Platelet Recovery and Activation:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma. Therefore, the term PRP is preferred to autologous platelet gel, plasma-rich growth factors (PRGFs), or a mere autologous platelet concentrate. Because it is a concentration of platelets, it is also a concentration of the 7 fundamental protein growth factors proved to be actively secreted by platelets to initiate all wound
healing. These growth factors include the 3 isomeres of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF, PDGF, and PDGF), 2 of the numerous transforming
growth factors- (TGF1 and TGF2), vascular endothelial growth factor, and epithelial growth factor. All of these growth factors have been documented toexist in platelets.1,2 Because these concentrated platelets are suspended in a small volume of plasma, PRP is more that just a platelet concentrate; it also contains the 3 proteins in blood known to act as cell adhesion molecules for osteoconduction and as a matrix for bone, connective tissue, and epithelial migration. These cell adhesion molecules are fibrin itself, fibronectin, and vitronectin.

Platelet concentrates are potentially useful in wound-healing applications because they function as both a tissue sealant and a drug delivery system that contains a host of powerful mitogenic and chemotactic growth factors. However, the method of platelet-rich plasma preparation has a potentially significant impact on the different levels of platelet recovery and activation.

What is the Safety of PRP?

Because it is an autogenous preparation, PRP is inherently safe and therefore free from concerns over transmissible diseases such as HIV, hepatitis, West Nile fever, and Cruetzfeld-Jacob disease (CJD) (“mad cow disease”). It therefore is also well accepted by patients.

Melbourne Clinic Tells Back Pain to Take a Back Seat

Back Pain Center MelbourneThe Facts:

85% to 90% of people in the United States will suffer from back pain at some time during their natural lives. Back pain is the second most common reason people visit their family doctors (following upper respiratory infections). On any given day, almost two percent of the entire United States work force is disabled by back pain. In people under 40 years of age, back pain is the most common reason for the inability to perform daily tasks. It also is the direct cause of exuberant health care expenses from $20 to $30 billion, yearly.
Pain that primarily affects the back should be distinguished from a spinal condition that results in mostly leg pain, a condition commonly called sciatica. Typically, sciatica is the result of a “pinched nerve” in the spinal column. In most cases, the cause of the sciatica is clearly defined; for example, a disc problem or arthritis. The cause of an episode of back pain, on the other hand, often is more difficult to pinpoint, and may be related to the discs, joints, or soft tissue supports (muscles, ligaments and tendons).

What is acute back pain?

Acute back pain refers to a brief, sudden episode of pain. Most people recover from acute back pain within two weeks with minimal treatment. Using over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen (Advil), and resuming normal activities as the pain permits are simple and effective treatments for most people with acute back pain.

What is chronic, on-going back pain?

Most back pain is relieved within a few days to a couple of weeks with simple treatment. When back pain lingers beyond four weeks – which is chronic, persistent back pain — further medical evaluation is required. This evaluation focuses on a careful assessment of the patient’s medical history and a thorough physical examination to identify, if possible, a precise cause of the pain. In rare cases, cancer or an infection is found. More commonly, back pain is related to the spinal joints, spinal discs, or supporting muscles in the back.

What causes your back pain?

Back strain is the top cause (85 percent of cases) of back pain in the United States.

Other causes of back pain include:
•    Disc herniation – A herniated disc is a rupture or tear of the cartilage that surrounds the vertebral discs. Pressure from the vertebrae above and below the affected disc squeezes the cushioning substance (nucleus pulposus) out of the disc. The nucleus pulposus can press against spinal nerve roots. This can cause severe leg pain and may cause nerve damage if not treated properly.
•    Osteoarthritis/spinal stenosis – This is characterized by the constriction or narrowing of the vertebral canal, the space that surrounds the spinal column.
•    Ankylosing spondylitis – Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that first affects the spine and adjacent structures. As the disease progresses, vertebrae will fuse together. This disease has a strong hereditary tendency and primarily affects men under 30 years of age.
•    Spondylolisthesis – Spondylolisthesis is the partial forward movement (dislocation) of one vertebra over the one below it. Usually, the fifth lumbar vertebra is dislocated over the first sacral vertebra.
•    Infection (less than 1 percent of cases)
•    Cancer (less than 1 percent of cases)
•    Fracture (small, slight break)
•    Trauma – An injury due to an accident or fall may cause a fracture or muscle strain.
•    Non-spinal causes — Non-spinal causes of low back pain include abdominal aortic aneurysms, kidney stones, infection, or perforating stomach ulcer.

How is back pain diagnosed?

Evaluating the patient’s medical history often is the doctor’s most powerful diagnostic tool. The doctor asks a series of questions to help identify possible causes of the back pain. The questions may focus on lifestyle factors, such as where you live, what type of work you do, and what activities or hobbies you enjoy; when your pain began; where your pain is located and what effect it has had on your daily activities; and whether your pain has responded to any treatment. The doctor also will ask about your medical, surgical, family, and social history.
Additional testing – X-rays, MRI/CT scans, EMGs, and lab tests – are necessary in a small number of cases. For example, the MRI provides little information about the condition of the ligaments, muscles and tendons. However, it may demonstrate common degenerative, (wear and tear), changes in the discs or joints in the spine. If the pain is caused by a neurological change or trauma, or if the patient has a persistent fever, is losing weight, has numbness or weakness or loss of bowel or bladder control, one or more of these diagnostic tests may be done immediately.

How is back pain treated by Laser Pain Care?

Most back pain can be successfully treated with conservative (non-surgical) measures. Conservative treatment includes activity (standing, walking, working) as tolerated, acetaminophen (non-aspirin over-the-counter pain reliever), and/or an anti-inflammatory medication, and cold packs to diminish swelling and pain. Usually, the pain will subside within four to seven days. If there is no improvement after five to seven days, contact Laser Pain Care for Class 1V, non-invasive laser treatments!

Advances via Laser in Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve Pain) Treatment

Peripheral neuropathy treatment by laserLaser therapy is becoming a leading force in treating Peripheral Neuropathy. With all the medical advances we have today, doctors still lack any effective treatments for this kind of nerve damage. Doctors are reduced to masking the pain and symptoms of the disease with medications. Laser therapy has proven to be very effective in treating this disease; significantly reducing reported patient pain and numbness. Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to your peripheral nerves, often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet.

Peripheral Neuropathy is a disease caused by damage to the sensory nervous system. This includes all nerves outside of the spinal cord. The most common cause is Diabetes. Although other issues such as kidney problems, vitamin deficiencies, alcoholism and statin use have been know to cause neuropathic problems. Many people that have received chemotherapy treatments also develop neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy usually presents itself with burning pain, numbness and loss of coordination in the legs, arms or both. Sensory loss is also an indication commonly starting in the fingers and toes then progressively moving up into the extremities. There can also be visible color changes in a patient’s skin tone; looking like a patchy dark tan, red and/or purple tones to the skin color. Many people with this problem experience an increase in pain at night right before bedtime. Peripheral neuropathy can become so debilitating that people lose their ability to perform normal daily tasks such as buttoning a shirt, walking to the bathroom or driving a car.

Medical technology is now starting to make great advances in treating this progressive and chronic disease through non-invasive, high-level laser therapy. Treatment with laser is a highly effective option for people who have Peripheral Neuropathy. Patients begin to regain feeling in there extremities after just one treatment. Lasers work by transmitting photon energy over the affected area. The photon energy increases circulation relieving burning pain associated with the affected area. Increased circulation, among other things helps to regenerate sensory nerves. Laser treatment is repeated in a series of 20 to 30 minute sessions for 6 to 8 weeks. There is no burning, cutting or cellular damage involved with this non-invasive laser treatment. In fact, most patients report a warm relaxing feeling while undergoing treatment.

Laser therapy is a new innovative approach to pain care. Patients suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy now have options that can relieve their pain and numbness without medication. The body starts to heal itself from the very first session and lasting pain relief is now a possibility. Laser therapy is a non-invasive and safe pain relieving option. Patients finish therapy sessions with lasting pain relief and a smile. Laser Pain Care is proud to be able to offer such an effective treatment with an FDA clearance of non-significant risk, which means it’s very safe.

Patient Review of Laser Pain Care, Melbourne Pain Clinic

At 84 years I have been subject to most medical problems of old age. I’ve had cataracts, carpal tunnel, diabetes, type II, colon cancer, hearing loss, arthritis, sciatica, and most recently back surgery for spinal stenosis. In the two and a half years since then, I’ve met with pain doctors who gave me prescriptions for hydrocodone and a co-pay of $45.

When I asked about optional treatments I was told there were none. I inquired about laser procedure. Three doctors told me I couldn’t do that because I had two metal strips in my back. Then I saw a notice about “Lunch & Learn” and thought I had would find out what Laser treatment was all about. Nicole assured me that almost half of the patients had metal strips and NONE have had a problem or discomfort. With a 90% success rate, I decided to give it a try for both my sciatica and lower back pain.

It really works! My pain and discomfort for both conditions are a thing of the past. I was concerned about the cost. Though FDA approved, Medicare and health insurers don’t contribute to the payment. When I thought about my costs for hearing aids, dental care, and co-pays, I decided Laser Pain Care was a most affordable and worthwhile investment. It not only alleviated the pain but worked on the cause. Fortunately, there are payment plans available to spread the charges over a year with credit cards accepted and direct debits to your bank account for convenience.

I have become an advocate because I think there are many people who can benefit from this laser pain care innovation. Current apathy and lack of knowledge from the standard medical community upsets me. I tell all of my friends my experience.

I am well satisfied and happy with my new health and return to normal activity without pain. I am “re-focused” not “retired”. I am optimistic about the years ahead. As Mark Twain said, “I’m going to live to be 100 … or die trying”.
