Using Regenerative Medicine to Manage Abdominal Pain

Pain of any kind can be debilitating, and if you have gut-wrenching pain in your abdomen, you could be out of commission indefinitely. What’s worse is that it can seem like your only roads to relief are home remedies or strong prescription medications, neither of which offer true, lasting comfort. 

But there’s another way to get serious relief from your symptoms without simply masking the problem or adding on side effects. 

At Regency Pain & Therapy Institute, we have a team of medical experts who specialize in state-of-the-art regenerative medicine technologies to address your worst abdominal pain

Review of regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine refers to the process of replacing, regrowing, and rebuilding the cells in your body, and restoring homeostasis to your hormones. 

We offer a few different types of regenerative medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and amniotic and stem cell injections, as well as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. 

PRP and amniotic and stem cell injection therapies each inject human cells directly into your most painful areas. The high concentrations of growth factors and purified cells begin reconstructing new, healthy cells from scratch. Once your cells regenerate, your tissues regain their function and stop causing pain. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses hormones from plants (rather than horse urine, which has been the standard source for many years) to reduce inflammation and calm widespread pain by stabilizing your systems that rely on optimal hormone balance. These include your immune, reproductive, and digestive systems. 

You’re highly unlikely to reject any of these treatments or experience any side effects, as they’re derived from natural sources. For example, PRP injections are created from a sample of your own blood, meaning it’s completely compatible. 

Regenerative medicine and your abdominal pain

Because your abdomen houses a complex network of tissues, muscles, and organs, it’s no wonder there are so many things that can go wrong. 

But whether you’re struggling with colitis or kidney stones, gallstones or gastroesophageal reflux disease, irritable bowel disease or endometriosis, regenerative medicine can get your gut back in order. Here’s how. 

Injury and trauma

There’s a reason you’ve read about professional athletes flocking to regenerative medicine when they’re injured — it has super healing powers. 

If you’re dealing with a muscular issue like a hernia, suffering from endometriosis, recovering from abdominal surgery, or feeling the traumatic effects of chronic reflux disease, regenerative medicine works to naturally repair damage and fortify your compromised tissues, preventing further injury and reducing or eliminating your pain. 

It does this by flooding your abdomen with powerful healing factors like platelets, or introducing undifferentiated cells that transform themselves into the cells you lost as a result of injury or trauma. 

Inflammation and disease

Sometimes your pain is the result of ongoing inflammation or a symptom of an underlying disease or condition. For example, kidney stones, gallstones, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel disease are all inflammation instigators and call for the healing capacity only regenerative medicine can provide. Depending on your needs, we can restore your crippled cells through PRP or amniotic or stem cell injections.

If your abdominal pain stems from a thyroid disorder, osteoporosis, or fibromyalgia, you can get rid of your pain through the balancing effect of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. 

A thorough evaluation helps us decide exactly which treatment or combination of treatments will work best for you.
