One of the newer treatments for a range of conditions is known as regenerative injection therapy, a term used for the process of injecting fluids into your skin to bring about the process of internal healing. Currently known as an alternative medicine many are finding relief and healing through the use of this medical technique.
Even in 2018 many people still see alternative medicine as an unsure practice due to the relative newness of the treatment in the western world.
We tend to overlook or forget that many of these alternative medicines or treatments have been entrenched in Asian cultures for hundreds of years. They have also proved beneficial to those that believe in them and who are willing to use them. As a western culture, we still seem to be a little shy and steer clear of trying them.
However, when we do adopt certain Asian methods that we feel comfortable with, it is usually in huge numbers. Yoga is one practice that comes to mind and that is now a standard practice through the western world.
Other healing processes such as Acupuncture are still growing on us and in talking to many others it appears to still not be on their list of medical techniques that they would try. Regenerative injection therapies for healing still leave a number of people unsure if it is wise for them as western medical doctors still have yet to
recommend this practice as often as they would other remedies.
So what conditions can regenerative injections assist with and how does it actually work? The process is most often used on issues such as lower back pain, tendonitis, sciatica, knees and hips. In a process similar to acupuncture the injection point does not always mirror the site of the actual pain to treat the musculoskeletal area.
You may find that the common injection entry point is instead under close or near the affected area or somewhere else equally obscure to the affected pain region.
The injection therapy formulation depends on your particular issue being addressed. It may be dextrose or a platelet-rich plasma or potentially stem cells. Your medical practitioner will discuss with you the injection options along with what is actually going to be injected and the rationale behind the actual injection point.
This pre-consultation must always take place so the patient knows exactly what is going to take place.
Personally, I have found that standard western medicine is still amiss when it comes to a range of medical issues. They seem to be lagging behind is using treatments that are effective and do no harm to the body. I would suggest to anyone who has an ongoing condition that conventional western medicine will not help and to
look further to the traditional Eastern medicines. Open your mind to the possibility that there are other avenues that you can pursue that may allow you to lead a much more comfortable life.
