Pain Relief

Santa Barbara Pain Relief

Pain occurs for many reasons. Finding out why and helping your body restore it’s natural function, pain free, is what we do.

We often think of pain occurring due to damaged tissues, joints, muscles, etc. For acute injuries this is often the case. How many times have you been told that acute inflammation is bad? That icing and anti-inflammatory medications are all that’s needed to help you recover? Acute inflammation is actually your body’s attempt to heal. It is necessary to restore full function. At RHMC we work with your body to facilitate advanced healing and accelerate recovery.

Whether you are an athlete looking to get back to the field, a busy mom taking care of your family or looking to get back to full function with minimal down time, accelerated healing and natural pain relief are possible.

Whether you are dealing with an acute injury, arthritis, chronic pain or degeneration, our cutting edge, safe and effective therapies restore function without drugs and or surgery.

Take the survey to see if you qualify for non-surgical pain relief:

Regenerative Medicine Program

At RHMC we are committed to achieving the best results with our patients. Through our Regenerative Medicine Program, we ensure that the injections themselves are able to do what they do best, which is to kickstart the healing process in the effected area, thereby facilitating increased function and decreasing pain. The injection is not what does the healing, instead it is the ability of an individual’s body to respond to and heal the area in which we are injecting. We prepare the body for the procedures by activating the immune system, supporting the processes of tissue repair, charging the body’s battery and creating an optimal healing regimen.

Over the years Dr. ACE has worked with many doctors, and has seen Regenerative Medicine be both incredibly effective, as well as ineffective. She started to investigate why some patients responded well and received not only pain relief but also increased function, whereas others responded with only mild results. Since Regenerative Medicine is the catalyst that activates the body’s capacity to heal an injury, damaged tissue or instability, Dr. ACE realized that supporting the body’s physiology and capacity to self-heal was the key. We do this via our proprietary program that combines Anti-inflammatory Nutrition, Hormone Optimization, IV Nutrient Therapy and Guided Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) to maximize the regenerative healing and pain relief your body is naturally capable of.

Regenerative Medicine treatments available at Regenerate Health Medical Center


Prolotherapy harnesses the body’s natural healing ability as a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain, arthritis and injuries. Minimal down time with better results than surgery or drugs.

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections are one of the most talked about and exciting treatments for pain. This super-charged injection harnesses your own growth factors, offering potent pain relief.

Stem Cell Injection Therapy

Stem Cell injections deliver the building blocks for new tissues directly to the site of damage or injury thereby delivering the most effective healing results in as little as one treatment.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone stimulates local circulation and growth factor production by oxidizing blood cells. This helps reduce damage in areas that contribute to chronic pain and boosts your immune system.

RHMC works to heal your injuries

The body has the ability to heal injuries, we do it every day all over our bodies. For various reasons including instability, systemic inflammation, hormonal imbalance and stress, the body may not completely heal an injury and you are left with chronic pain (pain that has persisted more than 6 weeks.)

This pain may have an orthopedic or musculoskeletal component, but the fact that it persists is what is key, i.e. the body isn’t able to heal on it’s own. Not only does the damaged area need to be addressed, but also the causes of the inflammation, degeneration and continual pain itself.

We work with your whole body to restore function, decrease inflammation and other triggers of chronic pain.
