At Pain Relief Partners, non-invasive medical procedures are the mainstay of our practice. Using the most up to date techniques, our team treats patients as whole people. We provide a comprehensive assessment in order to design a customized strategy for pain relief for our patients in Vancouver, Washington. Research in the field of regenerative medicine has advanced to a point that, at Pain Relief Partners, regenerative medicine is the shining star of our treatments. It is used with the hope of helping our patients attain optimal wellness and achieve a higher quality of life.
Until recently, treatment options for people with degenerative conditions were limited. Not many years ago, steroid injections, prescription medications, and joint replacement surgeries were often the only treatment options offered to patients. Now, in Vancouver, Washington, you can receive regenerative medicine injections at Pain Relief Partners! Research shows that this treatment can be beneficial for symptoms associated with osteoarthritis, neuropathy, chronic pain, disc bulge and/or herniation, spinal stenosis, joint pain, motor vehicle accidents, and more. Regenerative medicine encourages your body to use it's natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, this therapy actually promotes repair of the body to help your body restore degenerated tissues to cushion and repair areas that have aged or been injured.
It is an honor to use Signature Cord from Dr. Neil Riordan's lab in Texas to treat our regenerative medicine patients. Dr. Riordan has published 70 articles in medical journals, written a best selling book about stem cell therapy, and is a pioneer in the world of regenerative medicine. Signature Cord is derived from Wharton’s jelly which is found in the umbilical cord and it contains mesenchymal stem cells, hyaluronic acid, growth factors, proteins, and cytokines all of which work together to decrease inflammation and help your body repair damaged tissue. This therapy fits well with the integrated approach to wellness that we that we use for all of our treatments at Pain Relief Partners. We seek an approach to overall wellness, addressing the source of issues, rather than just treating symptoms. Our bodies are amazingly capable of healing, and we want to help you experience that.
WHAT ARE WHARTON’S JELLY STEM CELLS AND HOW ARE THEY COLLECTED?
Wharton’s jelly is found in the umbilical cord, the life source between mom and baby while baby is growing in the womb. During pregnancy, donors can volunteer to donate the umbilical cord during a scheduled cesarean delivery. Prior to delivery, social and biological screenings are performed to make sure the tissue will be healthy (no communicable diseases or behavioral risks). At the time of the scheduled cesarean delivery, a licensed professional is present to collect the umbilical cord after the full-term healthy human birth, and it is transported overnight to the lab to be sanitized and cleaned before processing. This is done using aseptic protocols and the Wharton's jelly is cryogenically frozen to preserve mesenchymal stem cells, structural matrix, hyaluronic acid, cytokines, proteins, and growth factors. Before being delivered overnight on dry ice to Pain Relief Partners, a sample is sent to a 3rd party lab for testing to be sure the product is safe for your treatment. Once delivered to our clinic, the tissue is kept in liquid nitrogen at a specific temperature to maintain cell viability. All of this is done to give you the BEST and SAFEST treatment possible.
WHY WHARTON’S JELLY?
There are many sources of stem cells available for use in the medical field that have the potential for healing. At Pain Relief Partners, we strive to offer the BEST quality and care to our patients. After much research and consideration, it is clear that Wharton’s jelly from Signature Biologics is the therapy we want to provide to our patients. Signature Biologics is Dr. Neil Riordan's Texas based lab. Dr. Riordan is well known in the world of regenerative medicine, and using his product to help our patients is an honor. These cells come from a biologically young source, have the ability to replicate, and have viable (LIVING) tissue containing mesenchymal stem cells, hyaluronic acid, cytokines, growth factors, and more.
WHAT IS IN WHARTON’S JELLY THAT MAKES IT SO GREAT?
Wharton’s jelly contains mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, cytokines, and more from young, healthy tissue with viable (LIVING) cells rather than from our own bodies that have aged and undergone the stress of life. As we age, the healthy tissue in our bodies can become dysfunctional. The cells in Wharton’s jelly have the potential to replace, reconstruct, and support the same basic functions of the patient’s tissues or cells that are no longer functioning as effectively as they once did. These cells are excellent at fighting inflammation and supporting the body’s ability to heal. Not all regenerative medicine is equal – we want you to receive the best product available to offer you the most hope for healing. After reading his books, listening to his videos, and reading many of his published research articles, there is no doubt that Dr. Riordan's product is the best we can offer our patients at this time.
