Some people make the comment that pain is an essential part of life. Others say that life is pain. We intrinsically link pain to the good parts of life and yet we shouldn’t. Through regenerative medicine we can not only alleviate pain but also reverse some of the damage done by time itself.
“What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three in the evening?”
The Sphinx questioned Oedipus with this riddle and luckily for him he knew the answer to be man. As we age, our bodies change, and nature can take its toll in a variety of ways. What can we do to halt the passage of time? Nothing. But we can take steps to minimize the pain that we deal with on a day to day basis. However, it is important to know the difference in regenerative versus relief for this exact reason. When we talk about regenerative medicine, it is not removing the pain but, instead, the goal is to heal and promote positive changes in the body.
Relieving pain is a short-term solution where people will do almost anything to deal with existing issues. For some, relief is all that they can hope for and while this sounds terrible it also isn’t mean to sound unhopeful. Regenerative medicine allows for the body to work to heal itself and overcome problems due to age, stressors, and injury. When reading about regenerative medicine, some feel that it is a cure-all solution, but this does not mean it is for everyone.
Pain relief can be simple, and many people opt for this choice because it can be an easier route. Steroid shots or a combination of pharmaceuticals can give short term care, but this does not mean that it is a long-term solution. In truth, these kinds of treatments often cause more harm to the body than the relief they give. Regenerative care can provide for gains that are beneficial on a multitude of levels. By regenerating the muscles and joints, the goal is to provide a natural solution to existing problems instead of just masking the issue. At Shubert Regenerative Care, we provide options to harmful medications and unnecessary surgery that, in comparison, can often be detrimental to the physical and mental well being of our patients. The well being of our patients is paramount and knowledge about options can provide much needed relief.
