Chronic pain can seriously hamper your ability to perform even basic everyday activities and can impact your overall quality of life. There are a variety of treatment options that our Winter Park, FL, rehab experts can provide to help manage the pain, among these is regeneration injection therapy, which taps into your own body's ability to heal. You can learn more about the procedure by reaching out to Dr. Enrique Umpierre of the Central Florida Pain & Rehab Clinic.
Regeneration injection therapy, or RIT, is a treatment for chronic pain, typically related to joints or muscle injuries, which can also include damaged cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.
The treatment involves injecting a natural solution into the affected area, with an anesthetic applied to it prior to the treatment, which is what you can basically expect during the procedure.
After the treatment, it's normal to experience some discomfort at the site of the injection, along with soreness and inflammation. If discomfort persists after about a week you should contact your doctor for a follow-up appointment. Your doctor may recommend over-the-counter medication and applying ice or heat as needed.
Your physician will probably recommend that you avoid rigorous activity after the injection.
How It Works
When you're injured, the damaged tissue sends a signal to the body so that it can begin the process of healing. It involves the replacement of damaged tissue with a healthy one, which can create inflammation and discomfort until the process is complete.
The use of anti-inflammatory medication can reduce discomfort and inflammation but can suppress the healing aspect.
So the way that RIT works is by replicating the body's normal healing process of tissues, the injected substance creates these conditions.
There are many benefits to RIT, it can improve muscle strength, reduce pain levels, increase movement, and can be an alternative to prescription drugs and possibly even surgery.
