Stem Cell Therapy for Pain Management

Now Treating

































Are you, a loved one, or someone you know a victim of chronic pain?

According to Ms. Kathryn Weiner, PhD and director of the American Academy of Pain Management, “PAIN IS AN EPIDEMIC!”.

Ms. Weiner notes, that in 1986 Koch4 estimated that 70 million office visits to physicians were motivated by pain complaints. In 1994 Joranson & Lietman5 estimated that approximately one-fifth of the adult American population experienced chronic pain, and in 1999 Marketdata Enterprises6 estimated that approximately 4.9 million individuals saw a physician for chronic pain treatment. One can conclude from these statistics that pain and the failure to treat it effectively represents a major problem confronting our modern culture.

Check out these shocking statistics and decide for yourself if Pain is a silent epidemic in the United States:

An estimated 50 million Americans live with chronic pain caused by disease, disorder or accident. An additional 25 million people suffer acute pain resulting from surgery or accident.1 Approximately two thirds of these individuals in pain have been living with this pain for more than five years.2 The most common types of pain include arthritis, lower back, bone/joint pain, muscle pain and fibromyalgia.1 The loss of productivity and daily activity due to pain is substantial. In a study done in 2000 it was reported that 36 million Americans missed work in the previous year due to pain and that 83 million indicated that pain affected their participation in various activities.3

In 1998 the National Institutes of Health7 estimated that approximately 80% of nursing home residents suffering pain were under- treated. A survey done by the American Pain Society2 in 1999 revealed that more than four out of ten people suffering moderate to severe pain were unable to find adequate pain relief.

Pain and the Quality of Life

Untreated pain has significant impact on not only the pain sufferer but also their family. As a significant pain study2 demonstrated, pain clearly has a negative impact on an individual’s quality of life. Pain diminishes their ability to concentrate, do their job, exercise, socialize, perform daily tasks, and sleep; all resulting in an unrelenting downward spiral of depression, isolation and loss of self-esteem. The extensive clinical studies done by Sternbach8,9 concluded that depression is the most frequent psychological reaction to chronic pain and that anxiety is the most frequent psychological reaction to acute pain.

Trying to Get Rid of Pain

People with chronic pain have difficulty finding doctors who can effectively treat their pain. The Chronic Pain in America: Roadblocks to Relief2 study found that one out of four pain patients had changed doctors at least three times, reporting that the primary reason for change was that they still experienced pain. Other reasons given were that their pain was not taken seriously; that doctors were unwilling to treat pain aggressively; and that doctors lacked knowledge about how to treat pain.
 
The Pain in America

A Research Report3 done in 2000 found that four out of five Americans believe that pain is a part of getting older, and approximately sixty four percent would see a doctor only if their pain became unbearable. Sixty percent of the respondents said that pain was just something that you have to live with. A surprising twenty eight percent indicated that they felt that there was no solution for their pain.

In light of this information it is essential for us to help those in pain to understand that they need not suffer.

Why Is The Placenta Stem Cell and Related Therapy Program So Effective and Successful for Chronic Pain?

Pain, still not fully understood by science, is a complicated process that involves some form of nerve and nerve pathway/connection damage or obstruction and an intricate interplay between a number of important chemicals found naturally in the brain and spinal cord. In general, these chemicals, called neurotransmitters, transmit nerve impulses from one cell to another.

There are many different neurotransmitters in the human body; some play a role in human disease and, in the case of pain, act in various combinations to produce painful sensations in the body. Some chemicals govern mild pain sensations; others control intense or severe pain.

The fact is that the United States ranks 77th in the world for quality and effectiveness of its health care delivery system yet ranks first for health care costs!

The majority of people who visit our office are those who have tried conventional medical methods many times without resolution to their health complaints or those who are simply tired of putting up with all of the dangerous side effects and extremely high costs associated with prescription drugs.

We succeed in treating and reversing chronic pain because the Placenta pain management program actually reduces or eliminates chronic pain conditions thus going far beyond just the temporary suppression of symptoms with drugs. This program treats many of the actual underlying causes, not the symptoms, of pain.  And the primary cause is some kind of nerve-related damage, inflammation, blockage, interruption or imbalance.

This unique combination of placenta implants, stem cells, platelet-rich plasma and regenerative nerve growth factors do what no other medical treatment can do: handle inflammation without the use of drugs or steroids and repair, regenerate and rebuild damaged nerves and reconnect /restore nerve pathways and connections within the nervous system thus reducing or eliminating the major causes of pain.

At the Optimum Health Regeneration Center, we focus on the best options to treat the source of your condition that will improve the quality of your life NOW and in the future!

So please, you don't have to be a victim of pain! If you, a loved one, or someone you know suffers from chronic pain, then fill-out our short information form and get a free evaluation to see if you are a candidate for placenta stem cell therapy.
