What is pain management?
Pain management helps to control and relieve long-term (chronic) pain. Any condition that causes pain lasting more than three months is considered chronic, including diseases like cancer.
Many people find pain management helps them live with incurable musculoskeletal conditions and severe or poorly healed injuries. LeHeal Biogenix specializes in providing advanced pain management to patients with these conditions.
What does pain management involve?
When you injure yourself, your body immediately begins to heal itself. During this process, your body removes the damaged tissue and replaces it with new, healthy cells. Part of this involves creating inflammation, which can be painful.
Anti-inflammatory medication, including steroid injections, treat the pain inflammation causes but can slow the healing process. LeHeal Biogenix uses regenerative injection therapy (RIT) instead.
RIT reproduces the body’s normal tissue-healing process by injecting a substance that stimulates natural healing. It can help with chronic pain caused by unhealed injuries in your:
Treatments involve injecting a natural solution (sometimes including your own blood plasma) into the muscle tissue in the affected area. Injection therapy helps repair tissues like tendons and ligaments by encouraging healing and healthy new tissue formation.
Benefits of RIT include increased movement and function, improved muscle strength, and reduced pain. RIT offers an effective alternative to prescription medication and surgery.
