Regenerative Medicine & Migraine Therapy: Cells helping Cells

Stem cell therapy has shown great promise in treating headaches and the tissue damage that they can cause. Stem cells can be harvested from a patient’s own body – through bone marrow or adipose tissue – and be used to regenerate healthy cells to replace those cells damaged by migraines.

Headaches and Tissue Damage

Many different things can cause migraines: strong smells, bright lights, exhaustion, blunt force trauma to the head, and neck injuries are just a few of the possible triggers. Doctor Payman Sadeghi has created a technique to use stem cell and PRP for various types of headaches. The process starts with diagnosing the source of pain. The philosophy behind this technique is that pain is simply nature’s way of telling us that there is tissue damage at a certain part of the body. Contrary to current theories, Dr. Sadeghi believes that the pain of migraine and headache is not a central pathology; therefore, it is not localized in the brain. The pain usually stems from the surrounding tissues such as nerves, muscles, ligaments, joints, etc. Once the diagnosis is made and the damaged tissue responsible for the pain is localized, patients own stem cell or PRP is injected into that tissue.

Healing and Regeneration

Stem cell therapy has given regenerative medicine a firm boost when it comes to helping to relieve headache pain. The unique feature of this approach is that it is an organic healing/repair technique; no medication involved; it is your own DNA. It is a regenerative process of your ligaments and cartilage. It is a very simple process – we draw your blood, we separate the platelets of your blood and inject into the affected area. From that point on, the body will begin the regeneration process. The difference between PRP and Stem Cell is an additional step. If we do the Stem Cell, the doctor will get rich stem cell either from your body fat or bone marrow. We mix the stem cell with your plasma at creates a “StrongPunch” for faster regeneration.
