Pain management is a branch of medicine that focuses on improving the quality of life of patients living with chronic pain. While pain medications can temporarily relieve and mask pain, they can be addictive and pose a threat to your overall health.
Using holistic, interventional techniques at The Center for Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Farricielli can repair damage in your neck, back, knees, and other areas where you frequently experience chronic pain. These innovative pain management treatments can effectively relieve pain and improve your quality of life.
Dr. Farricielli treats a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, such as:
He also offers non-surgical treatments for osteoarthritis in the ankle and ankle and foot pain.
Depending on your condition, your treatment plan at The Center for Regenerative Medicine may include one or more of the following treatments:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance in your blood that contains growth factors. To trigger your body’s healing response and repair damage from within, Dr. Farricielli runs a sample of your blood through a centrifuge to isolate your PRP. He then injects the PRP directly into your injury site.
Similar to PRP therapy, stem cell therapy involves collecting stem cells from your bone marrow and injecting them into your areas of pain. Over time, these isolated stem cells stimulate healing and cell regeneration to repair damage and relieve pain.
FDA-approved to treat knee arthritis, viscosupplementation injects the gel-like substance hyaluronic acid into the area surrounding your knee joint to cushion the joint. This increases the viscosity of the fluids surrounding your joint to alleviate pain and pressure.
Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive treatment that delivers shockwaves into your areas of pain. This targeted energy converts to heat once it reaches your deeper layers of tissue to repair damage, relieve pain, and restore function.
Micronized fat aspirate injections take fat from your abdomen and inject it into painful joints to provide much-needed cushion and flexibility.
