How Regenerative Medicine Can Help You Recover Faster From Surgery

Are you worried about the recovery process after a surgery? Do you want to look into pain management options that don’t involve narcotics? Though recovery time is important after a surgery, it’s understandable that you don’t want to be laid up for longer than necessary. It’s also understandable to want to avoid the risk of developing an addiction to pain-relieving drugs.

Regenerative medicine, offered by Dr. William Brelsford in Tyler, Texas, promotes healing responses in your muscles and tendons using stem cells and other tissues. You can experience pain relief, but also see fully restored function in your body sooner than compared to traditional therapies. 

How regenerative medicine works

Regenerative medicine stops the degeneration of tissues and restores healthier ones, using your body’s own resources. Dr. Brelsford accomplishes this using donor tissue graft harvested from cellular umbilical cord blood, which is rich in growth factors and stem cells. Once introduced into your body where your surgery took place, new cells are created to assist in new growth. This concentrated injection ensures healing where your body needs it most.

Patients who have undergone regenerative medicine after surgery report a faster, less painful healing process. They are able to get back on their feet and resume their normal activities sooner than patients who take painkillers or have traditional physical therapy. This healing process is still in the early stages of use, but it’s a safe and effective procedure with an extremely promising future.

Think of this process as your body’s already instinctive healing process, but sped up and amplified.

What are other uses for regenerative medicine? 

Regenerative medicine can also be used for pain relief in patients with osteoarthritis (one of the most common types of arthritis, in which your bones’ protective cartilage wears down with age) by slowing down the degeneration process. Regenerative medicine is also effective in healing joint injuries. It’s also often recommended to complement other types of therapies, such as physical therapy and plasma therapy that uses the body’s own platelets.
