Nutritional Support

Nutritional support for regenerative medicine is worth thinking about. While proper nutrition is essential for both disease management and anti-aging approaches to health care it is can also play a cornerstone role in regenerative medicine.

In general foods that cause inflammation should be avoided and those that provide the building blocks or essential substrates should be encouraged. The goal of the anti-inflammatory diet is to decrease the influx of free radicals and to increase the number of antioxidants. In one study done from the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Neurosurgery an anti-inflammatory diet led to a significant reduction in symptomatology in three-quarters of patients. Approximately 70% of these patients were able to discontinue prescription medications.

Management of Peripheral Neuropathy

Nerves conduct electrical impulses, thereby allowing messages to travel between the brain, muscles, skin, and other tissues in the body. The nerves that arise from the spine are called roots. They merge into larger bundles called trunks, and then divide back into smaller bundles called branches. The branches complete their course in the periphery, at the ends of the fingers and toes.

Genetic predisposition, diabetes, vascular disorders, certain medical treatments (including chemotherapy or radiation) and environmental factors (such as toxic metals or alcohol) may cause nerves to become sick, or neuropathic. Irrespective of the cause, neuropathic nerves are no longer able conduct current properly. Pain, weakness, numbness, or functional impairment can result.

Non-Narcotic Pain Pharmacology

Despite the long-standing availability of pain medication, confusion still exists as to which medication is best for the treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal pain. This is due in large part to a relative lack of understanding of pain receptor pharmacology and the number of agents available. This article will review various non-opiate medications that can be used to treat pain.

Several neuropathic disorders share similar pain perception pathways, including diabetic peripheral neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), post surgical/traumatic neuropathy, and toxic and idiopathic neuropathies. Medications directed toward these pathways can also provide relief for neck and low back pain, acute and chronic ligamentous strain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other muscular aches and pains.
