Because our lives are so busy, we sometimes feel depleted and exhausted. Yet normal lag cannot compare with the burnout that comes with plummeting health. The problem is more severe when your body feels like it needs a break, but no rest seems to make a difference in how you feel. At Right Path Pain and Spine Centers in Davenport, FL, our team keeps up to date on all promising treatments, including exosome therapy, that can revitalize your health.
Exosome Therapy: How Does It Work?
Exosome therapy stimulates your body’s natural ability to heal, restore, and regenerate at its full potential through injectable treatments. There are a number of promising benefits from this new therapy, which is rooted in molecular biology and other advanced sciences. Before scheduling your appointment, learn more about this revolutionary new treatment.
Known as “extracellular” vesicles, exosomes bounce between neighboring cells. In this sense, these vesicles could be considered like cell phone signals, internet connections, or even cloud data. The vesicles act as cellular messengers. The vesicles in the body can attach and re-attach to cells, spreading messages between them. They are smaller in size than a regular human cell.
What Do They Do, Exactly?
Vesicles are responsible for cell-to-cell communication, but they also perform other functions. Among other things, they can transport genetic information between cells, instructions on how neighboring cells should behave, and even support neighboring cells with proteins and lipids.
Further, researchers are finding that these vesicles are vital for the body’s overall functioning since our cells communicate almost entirely through them.
How Can They Benefit Me?
In clinical trials, new vesicles introduced to the body have been shown to enhance the immune system response as well as reinforce normal body functions. The injection of new vesicles either into the bloodstream or into specific treatment areas has been shown to significantly enhance the body’s regenerative abilities.
Exosome Therapy Treatment
A variety of health concerns can be addressed with this therapy. A wide range of issues related to aging is addressed by this therapy, which is useful for whole-body rejuvenation. Just some of the things this therapy can help with include:
- Joint pain
- Immune system concerns
- Anti-aging issues
- Orthopedic injuries
A great number of patients with joint pain in particular look for alternatives to invasive procedures and use this therapy as a way of alleviating their symptoms.
Causes of Joint Pain
Pain in a joint is generally caused by inflammation of the cells around a joint or by erosion of cartilage, which can lead to the bones rubbing together over time. People over 40 are more likely to have joint pain due to aging. Injuries, heavy exercise, and prolonged inactivity can also result in joint pain. Joint pain can also be caused by diseases like gout, mumps, bursitis, osteoarthritis, and more.
Joint pain can manifest anywhere you have joints, including the neck, jaw, elbows, shoulders, hips, hands, knees, and more. One of many parts of the body can be affected by joint pain. When joint pain is particularly bad, it can affect your ability to work, and even your quality of life.
How Therapy with Exosomes Can Help
In what ways does this therapy help manage joint pain? Interventional pain management, such as this, involves injecting a beneficial solution through a minimally invasive process in order to correct damage and reduce inflammation. Rebuilding damaged joints and reducing inflammation around joints are essential for joint pain relief.
How Treatment Works
Getting this treatment at our clinic involves a few steps. Our treatment process is standardized for all patients while ensuring that we provide compassionate care tailored to their specific needs. Here’s what to expect in particular:
First, you must attend a consultation appointment. Consultation is our opportunity to evaluate your eligibility for treatment, and your chance to talk about your concerns and needs. A thorough examination of your concerns, a discussion of your overall health goals, and a detailed analysis of your treatment expectations will take place.
In addition to gathering some information about you, we need to know your general medical history, what medications and supplements you are currently taking, and what injuries you’ve sustained. Some labs or exams may need to be completed after your consultation. Labs and exams provide valuable information about how your treatment is working.
Our pre-treatment instructions will help you prepare for treatment prior to your therapy. Some pre-treatment instructions may include:
- Eat lightly for a few days
- Avoid alcohol or tobacco for 24 hours
- Drink plenty of water before your treatment
Your specific needs and treatment plan may require additional instructions; however, you shouldn’t have to do too much. This is a safe and simple treatment. Due to the fact that this is outpatient therapy, there is no need to arrange for transportation on the day of your appointment.
There are two ways in which your treatment could be performed. In IV therapy, the vesicle solution is delivered to the blood and spread throughout the body via an IV line in your arm or hand. Injection treatments are administered with vesicle solutions that are concentrated and applied directly to the affected areas. The entire procedure should take 30-60 minutes.
You will receive post-treatment instructions following your treatment to help you get the best possible results. While your instructions will be specific to your needs, we may tell you to:
- Drink at least 48 oz of water
- Avoid strenuous movement for 24 to 72 hours
- Avoid alcohol or tobacco for 24 hours
- Avoid foods high in sodium or sugar
Following your treatment, you may be given advice on how to use hot or cold compresses and what over-the-counter products to use.
This therapy has a very short recovery period. After receiving treatment, patients can typically return to their normal daily routines within one to three days. Joint pain patients should walk during the recovery period, plus perform light stretches for their joints.
Generally, results from this treatment appear between 1 and 2 weeks after treatment. Reduction of inflammation in joints and improved self-confidence will be the results. Most patients note a decrease in joint pain and other bodily aches as the result of treatment. These therapies are also effective in combating aging and rejuvenating the skin. Patients report that these therapies improve their overall health as well as their skin’s tone and texture.
