Not all injections for pain relief contain medication. While there are many injection therapies that we use at Allied Pain & Spine Institute that contain corticosteroids, neuromodulators and local anesthesia for pain relief, we also offer innovative therapy options. There are biological agents that can provide healing effects on damaged tissue and offer pain relief. The pain management specialists at our medical center in San Leandro, CA in the South Bay area perform innovative injection therapy as one of our treatment modalities.
Injection therapy is one of the least invasive and most effective tools in interventional pain management. Using a small needle, medication or biologics can be delivered precisely to the area causing pain. Innovative therapy uses cutting-edge substances that are derived from the human body, often from the patient. Blood, bone marrow and even fat cells can be used to retrieve biologic substances that can be filtered, purified and concentrated to provide innovative injection therapies.
Stem cells, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and other biological substances can be used as treatments. These are examples of regenerative medicine treatments that have shown wonderful promise in providing healing and tissue repair. Regenerative medicine uses cutting-edge injections that have been used for decades to promote faster wound healing. There is new evidence promoting how PRP and stem cell injections can be used to stimulate joint repair and other innovative therapy options for pain, disease and injury management.
Regenerative medicine using biologics harvested from the patient has many benefits. Since the substances are not synthetic or foreign, there is no risk for allergic or other negative reactions. Medications may offer pain relief, but they are not designed to promote self-healing. There are unlimited possibilities using autologous (biologics from the patient) treatments for long-term pain management and other treatments.
At Allied Pain & Spine Institute, we embrace all types of innovative therapy options that can provide safe and effective outcomes for our patients. We are constantly adding new treatment modalities based on the latest scientific evidence.
