Medica Pain Management offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives for Peripheral Vascular Disease treatment to get your life back on track!
Peripheral Vascular Disease, also known as Peripheral arterial disease, and as the name implies is a condition involving the peripheral arteries. It is a condition in which blood flow to the arms, legs or other parts of the body becomes restricted. Peripheral Vascular Disease typically causes pain and fatigue, more often in legs – typically complains of pain in calf muscles, when walking that forces to stop (intermittent claudication) and especially during exercise. The arteries are narrowed or occluded by atherosclerotic plaques (deposited lipids). There is a gradual build-up of plaque in the lining of the arteries and it results in the arteries becoming narrowed, leading to a restriction in the blood flow. The rate at which the plaques develop depends on a number of factors, the risk factors for developing peripheral vascular disease would be,
- Family history of disease
- Hypercholestrolemia or high cholesterol
- Hypertension or high blood pressure
- Being overweight
Before Regenerative Therapy the only treatment available was surgery (angioplasty). Now a minimally invasive non-surgical Regenerative Therapy treatment offers a new horizon. By injecting your own mesenchymal cells, harvested as well as a simple blood sample, both processed and prepared in no longer than a few hours to be re-injected locally, in the affected area, new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) is encouraged. Blood supply is restored through a bypass network of new vessels and the patient feels his extremities warm again and is able to move without pain.
Regenerative Therapy has helped untold amounts of people to improve their quality of life. It by means of several protocols will ultimately help initiate the self-healing cycle in the injured part of the body and the end result then is pain relief.
