What are the most common pain management treatments?
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.
Mesenchymal Stem cell therapy
Similar to PRP therapy, mesenchymal stem cell therapy involves collecting mesenchymal stem cells from your bone marrow and injecting them into your areas of pain. Over time, these isolated mesenchymal 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.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy
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 injection
Micronized fat aspirate injections take fat from your abdomen and inject it into painful joints to provide much-needed cushion and flexibility.
