Do you have osteoarthritis-related joint pain? Do you suffer from back, tendon or muscle pain?
As with most people affected, pain ointments or injections of “lubricating substances” into the joint have not brought you any significant relief?
Regenerative medicine takes a different approach
Regenerative medicine deals with the restoration of dysfunctional cells and tissues. Regeneration and healing mechanisms of the body are specifically initiated. Thus, the body’s own natural biological healing processes are activated. If the homeostasis gets out of control in favour of tissue degradation (trauma, infection, wear and tear, ageing), degenerative processes occur (osteoarthritis, bone and cartilage degradation). Under certain positive circumstances, the body’s own regeneration mechanisms have the potential to restore the balance.
WHAT IS HOMEOSTASIS?
Homeostasis is the balance of physiological body functions in a stable system.
This is where regenerative medicine can help. The following endogenous substances are relevant for regenerative measures:
The 4 substance classes of regeneration in the human body
Signalling proteins that stimulate cell division and regeneration
e.g. IL-1Ra, IL-10
Signalling proteins, can limit the intensity and duration of inflammation in the tissue and could initiate regeneration
Extracellular vesicles are described as messengers between cells. For example, they are supposed to play a role in the communication of healing and regeneration processes in the affected tissue
are products of an enzymatic conversion of Omega-3 fatty acids. Their synthesis begins within a few minutes after blood collection. They can have an anti-inflammatory effect in the affected tissue
Multimodal treatment concepts
Many people intuitively react to severe pain with resting and relaxing. However, prolonged immobilization accelerates the progression of the disease. At the same time, joint-stabilizing ligaments and muscles are weakened and atrophy. Changes in the muscles, ligaments and joint capsule can lead to a further worsening of the symptoms.
Therapeutic measures should always aim at a holistic treatment of the complaints and less at a purely symptomatic one. These multimodal treatment options take the place of conventional treatment methods.
In addition to the innovative therapeutic approach of regenerative medicine already mentioned, this includes controlled exercise and a diet that specifically supports healing processes. Thus, these concepts give the possibility to actively contribute to a recovery in close cooperation with the treating physician.
