Thinking About Regenerative Therapy?

Are you considering Regenerative Therapy?

 

Regenerative Therapy with Amniotic Allograft Injections is now available for treating chronic osteoarthritic pain at our sister Physical Medicine locations: Xcell Medical Group in Elyria and Eastside Medical Group in Shaker Heights.

This breakthrough treatment option provides pain relief and healing without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays, or prolonged recovery and downtime from life.

 

Some of the amazing benefits of this treatment include the following:

  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and promotes new cartilage growth.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain no steroids. Instead, the injections rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines, which are small proteins released by cells that have a specific effect on the interactions between cells, on communications between cells or on the behavior of cells.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections contain growth factors, which stimulate tissue growth.
  • Amniotic Allograft Injections carry no threat of patient rejection.

 

Regenerative Therapy using Amniotic Allograft Injections is very safe and effective for healing and repairing chronic osteoarthritic joint pain issues.

 

Amniotic Allograft Injections are:

  • FDA Approved
  • Donated by Healthy Moms at live birth C-section
  • Placental tissues and fluid are processed in “clean room” environment that exceeds American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) standards
  • Subjected to stringent United States Pharmacopeia (USP) testing
  • Have antimicrobial (germ-killing) and anti-fibrotic (i.e. ability to break down scar tissue) properties as well
  • SAFE! No Reported Adverse Effects or Rejection

Regenerative Therapy has been acknowledged in medical history across the world as a big discovery in natural healing.

 

How is Regenerative Therapy with Amniotic Allograft Injections done?

After your initial consultation with our experienced doctors to see if this type of treatment can work for you, we schedule a time for you to come into our office for the procedure, which takes less than one hour to perform. 

Dr. Hoashi uses ultrasound-guided imaging to find the best place to inject the matrix mixture of amniotic tissues, growth factors, proteins, collagen and hyaluronic acid into your joint. 

The matrix mixture then starts to metamorphosize into different cells; this allows the cells to become tissue cells, bone cells, or other kinds that are needed in that area. This ability to become whatever cells are necessary for the affected area is what medical practitioners believe is so unique about Amniotic Allograft Injections.

This huge number of growth factors injected into the body will help in healing the injuries at an accelerated pace. 

 

 


The best results for Regenerative Therapy are most often seen in osteoarthritic joints.

Chronic Pain: 7 Foods to Avoid

Chronic pain affects many people and fibromyalgia is the most common form. This chronic condition is characterized by symptoms like muscle pain, fatigue, depression, and sleeping disorders.

Latest studies suggest that the central sensation, in which neurons in the spinal cord are sensitized by inflammations or cell damage, could get involved in the same way people with fibromyalgia process pain. The food you eat may contain chemicals that trigger the neurotransmitters, which increases the sensitivity.

 

1. Reduce The Intake of Sugar And Artificial Sweeteners

High insulin levels affect the condition and thus worsen pain and inflammation. Reduce the sugar intake and the foods that contain hidden sugar.

Sugar cravings appear once in a while but focus on eating more fresh fruits. Aspartame, sorbitol, and xylitol are sugar-free artificial sweeteners, but they contain compounds that transform sensitivity to pain and also trigger irritable bowel syndrome. Making your own food and eating whole foods is the best way to avoid hidden sugars.

 

2. Caffeine is No Good For You

Scientists associate chronic pain and fibromyalgia with insufficient sleep and fatigue. People drink too much coffee so they can go through the day more easily. Coffee provides the desired effect, but in the long run, it can largely affect your good night’s sleep.

 

3. Avoid Gluten And Yeast

These are contained in baked goods and pastry. Regular consumption of these products stimulate the growth of yeast and fungus and thus increase the pain.

 

 

4. Remove Dairy Products From Your Diet

Dairy and many other animal products contain a protein that worsens arthritis and fibromyalgia. It irritates the tissue around the joints, which worsens the pain. Think about going vegan, as this decision has helped many people to cure chronic diseases.

 

5. Say No To Refined Carbohydrates.

Carbohydrates, similar to sugar, can increase insulin levels and worsen any chronic condition. Always choose low-carb, low-sugar foods and often eat plant-based meals.

 

 

6. Tobacco and alcohol harm your body and trigger severe health conditions including diseases that affect the joints

Statistics have shown that smokers have a higher risk of rheumatoid arthritis, and people who consume alcohol regularly are more likely to develop gout.

 

7. Food additives Are Dangerous

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and other food additives cause additional problems for people with chronic pain, by stimulating pain receptors and increasing pain. Producers add MSG to fast food and prepackaged foods to enhance their taste.

chronic pain issues

5 Things You Should Know About Chronic Pain

If you suffer from chronic pain issues, it’s important that your friends and family know what you’re going through.

With this in mind, here are 5 things to know about chronic pain that you can share with your loved ones:

 

  1. Chronic pain is real

People with chronic pain are often treated as if they are making up (or at least exaggerating) their pain. But the truth is that all pain is real, even if there is no known cause. Additionally, almost all people with chronic pain want nothing more than to be pain-free.

So what your friend or family member needs from you is your support and kindness, not condemnation. Statements like “Get over it” or “It can’t be that bad” don’t accomplish anything other than to discourage those with chronic pain.

Thankfully, there is an increasing consensus in the medical community that all chronic pain is real, and that it needs to be treated even if there is no known cause.

 

  1. Chronic pain commonly leads to disuse syndrome

Chronic pain issues often leads to long-term lack of physical activity and a condition recognized as disuse syndrome. This syndrome can negatively impact your musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, psychological, and emotional processes. At its worst, disuse syndrome leads to a pervasive lack of wellness that in and of itself can be debilitating.

Of note, disuse syndrome can both perpetuate and increase the likelihood of chronic pain worsening over time.

 

  1. Chronic pain commonly leads to sleep-related problems

Chronic pain can create a troubling cycle when it comes to sleep. That is, chronic pain can make it harder to sleep, and in turn a lack of sleep can make chronic pain worse.

Common sleep-related problems caused by chronic pain issues include an inability to fall asleep, constantly waking up at night, and not feeling refreshed upon waking up in the morning. Because of the close connection between sleep problems and chronic pain, the two need to be treated together.

 

  1. Pain is deeply personal

Every person’s experience of pain is different. For example, two people may have the same condition, and one may display no ill-effects, while the other may be incapacitated. When it comes to back pain, this is especially true. Two people can have the same type of herniated disc, but one feels only slight discomfort and the other feels burning, debilitating sciatic pain.

There are a number of possible reasons for this, including individual physiology, a person’s upbringing, etc.

 

  1. Happiness does not equal health

Often times, when a person with chronic pain is smiling or having a “good day,” people assume that the person is not experiencing pain. However, this is not necessarily the case.

It is important to recognize that a person can be happy and at the same time be experiencing pain. So be careful to not assume that a friend or loved one is “healed” simply because they seem to be enjoying themselves.

 

The bottom line

There are so many secondary and related issues that accompany chronic pain issues that it would be a real challenge to address them all. This list is intended to at least get the conversation started—and for anyone living with any type of chronic pain, please pass this along to your loved ones to help them better understand and support you.

If you have chronic pain, you may also find it does you a world of good to have increased emotional support, more effective and sustainable pain management, and even possibly harnessing the power of your mind to assist in coping with the pain.
