Regenerative Medicine for Pain Relief: Resolutions for Optimal Health
The future of joint pain relief is with regenerative medicine. By combining the powers of nature and science, your achy joints will be a thing of the past. If you have resolutions for better health this year, we have you covered. Our clinic in Ahwatukee specializes in this rapidly growing treatment that will allow you to return to living a life pain-free, naturally.
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a branch of natural medicine that blends nature’s healing powers with modern scientific advancements. Our bodies are made intelligently and begin the healing process as soon as we’re injured. But sometimes this isn’t enough. Regenerative medicine utilizes natural growth factors and proteins to give your body an added boost. It’s regularly used to repair damaged soft tissues that are unavoidable due to age, injury, and disease.
The natural solution to pain relief
As we age, our bodies wear down and become more susceptible to injury and disease. But what if you could prevent both altogether? You don’t have to wait for the first signs of disease to schedule an appointment with your doctor. Preventative care is key in maintaining a clean bill of health especially if you are predisposed to certain health conditions.
Using the healing power of nature
Regenerative medicine is great for acute and chronic pain relief. When your body lacks vital nutrients, regenerative medicine can be introduced to the injured areas to stimulate the healing process. This added boost restores structure and function to the soft tissues while simultaneously reducing pain and inflammation.
Even if you are not injured, it’s a good idea to attend regular checkups to make sure nothing is amiss. By keeping your body and joints healthy with routine injections and blood work, diseases can be prevented entirely. You only get one body–wouldn’t you rather add quality years to your life than suffer?
Regenerative therapies for acute and chronic pain
If you have ever received imaging, you’re likely familiar with x-rays, MRI’s, and CT scans. While useful, they are not always the best tools for diagnosing the exact source of pain for injuries. At MedLink Health Solutions, we use advanced ultrasound technology to diagnose the exact source of pain.
An x-ray and MRI show a still image. At our office, we use ultrasound as a guide while your joint is moving in real time. This allows us to see the specific movements that cause you pain and when you receive regenerative injections it’s precise with ultrasound guidance. This eliminates the guesswork so you can rest assured we hit our mark every time.
Conventional pain management involves pain killers, steroid injections, and often masks symptoms instead of treating them. Naturopathic medicine treats you from the inside out and heals you using natural solutions such as regenerative medicine . This groundbreaking therapy stimulates your body’s natural ability to repair itself and is revolutionizing pain management. There are a few types of regenerative medicine which we’ll cover below.
Regenerative joint therapy injections
After your diagnosis, we create a customized treatment plan for you. Regenerative joint injections safely heal your injuries by rebuilding tissues and accelerating healing. By using your body’s own cells, it’s a safer and less invasive alternative to joint replacement surgery or conventional treatments with long-lasting and damaging side effects. The ultrasound diagnosis guides us to the correct area so you feel relief after every visit. And when paired with ozone therapy, your injury will heal better and at a faster rate.
The healing power of oxygen comes to life with ozone therapy. This rapidly growing treatment is great for pain and inflammation not only for its pain relieving abilities, but for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. Ozone is carefully made medical-grade oxygen that has extraordinary benefits. Heart disease, arthritis, and cancer are just a few conditions that have successfully been treated with ozone therapy. We administer the ozone intravenously (through an IV) or injections at our office, but it can be administered at home with the proper equipment as well.

Platelet rich plasma therapy
Also known as PRP, platelet rich plasma safely heals joint pain and other damaged soft tissues. This minimally invasive process involves extracting your blood and reintroducing it as highly concentrated plasma to the injured area. Because your own blood is used, there is virtually no risk of infection. PRP stimulates your body to promote healing and has proved effective in reducing inflammation and repairing muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Amniotic Liquid Allograft
Also known as Amnio, we use this product that is specifically formulated to advance the repair of soft tissues and their replacement and reconstruction. Sometimes your body’s cells are not enough to heal and repair an injury. Amnio contains an abundance of cytokines and growth factors but in a highly concentrated and stronger manner than PRP. When introduced to your injury, it decreases pain, inflammation, and promotes better joint functionality.
How can regenerative medicine help me?
If you’ve been suffering with an achy back or knee, you know how debilitating it is. A great day can be ruined by another flare up that doesn’t go away, even after taking medication. Regenerative medicine is the best option for pain relief because it rebuilds tissues, accelerates the healing process, and regulates inflammation–and keeps you away from invasive surgery.
Most people seek treatment after they’ve experienced symptoms for a prolonged period of time. You don’t need to wait for another flare up to schedule an appointment with the MedLink team. Regenerative medicine can help you return to living a life free of pain by healing your injuries rather than masking them with medication.
The natural solution to chronic pain relief
Chronic pain will affect most individuals at some point in their life. With the sedentary lifestyle being the norm our bodies are reacting with inflammation. Thankfully, this can be avoided or reversed with regenerative medicine. With increased range of motion, long-lasting pain relief, and a fast recovery time, your body will thank you. At MedLink, we treat a wide variety of conditions including:
- Ligament tears
- Tendon tears
- Chronic joint pain
- Rotator cuff tears
- Sports injuries, and more
