Pain & Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What are common pain conditions?

Pain is complex and highly variable. Not only are there different types of pain, but your symptoms can range in severity. 

Pain conditions are often due to injuries or degenerative damage to your muscles, connective tissue, bones, and nerves. Some of the most common causes of chronic pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Headaches 
  • Postsurgical pain
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Neuropathy 

You can also have chronic pain due to conditions like endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. 

When should I talk to a doctor about pain?

If you have an acute injury, like spraining your ankle while playing in your weekend soccer league, or if you’re involved in an automobile accident, you should contact Virginia Integrative Practice right away. 

If you have mild or moderate pain, you can try to treat it at home with ice, heat, and over-the-counter pain relievers. If your pain doesn’t start to go away within a couple of days or it gets worse, call Virginia Integrative Practice. 

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an emerging medical specialty that focuses on stimulating the body’s natural ability to repair and heal itself. Virginia Integrative Practice offers stem cell therapy, which floods injured tissue with stem cells and proteins that support cellular repair. 

Stem cells are the building blocks of your body — they can turn into whatever type of cell your body needs while multiplying. For example, a stem cell injection into a damaged ligament might accelerate the healing process and provide more rapid and long-term pain relief.

What should I expect from regenerative medicine treatments for pain?

Virginia Integrative Practice creates highly customized pain management programs that often combine regenerative medicine with other therapies. After providing an extensive consultation and any necessary diagnostic tests, they create a tailored plan to heal your body and reduce your pain. 

Depending on your needs, your treatment plan could include conventional and natural therapies, such as:

  • Stem cell therapy and other regenerative medicine treatments
  • Peptide therapy
  • Myers’ Cocktail intravenous infusions
  • Acupuncture
  • Hypnotherapy 
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Massage therapy 

Your provider might also recommend other lifestyle modifications to enhance your overall health, which can help you cope with pain and direct your energy toward recovery.
