Existing pain treatments have been excellent at reducing pain by masking discomfort in a “band aid” fashion with medications such as narcotics, NSAIDS and cortisone.
These treatments have been excellent for relief, but they DON’T fix the underlying problem!
Fixing Tissue Injury
So how is the problem truly helped at our Centers of Excellence, whether it’s joint arthritis, neck or back pain, achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, golfers/tennis elbow, sports injuries, ligament injury, COPD, kidney failure, neuropathy, Alzheimers, stroke, etc?
Regenerative Medicine at R3 Stem Cell centers has the possibility for repairing normal anatomy by using treatment with platelet rich plasma therapy, stem cells, and growth factors to potentiate a healing response in one’s own body.
R3 Stem Cell Treatments
R3 stem cell injection treatments are all minimal risk, outpatient therapies. Several studies are showing these regenerative treatments to work very well at healing injury while reducing pain. For example, several professional sports leagues have approved of PRP therapy along with the WADA.
