Regenerative Medicine is a new medical field that studies how the body heals and how science can enhance this process. It starts with pinpointing the cause. Contrary to popular beliefs, it is impossible to definitively diagnose causes of pain through an x-ray or MRI, and committing to surgery based on this alone seems ridiculous. At Wellward, we start with traditional methods but then take it to the next level by incorporating our innovative approach using live x-ray and ultrasound technologies. We can watch your body move when and where it hurts. This allows us to not only identify what’s causing the pain, it gives us the precision to know that we are targeting exactly what hurts. We don’t just aim for a general area and hope that it works, we get down to the very nerve. Once found, we then identify why your body failed to fix the problem.
Your body has an army of stem cells that activate upon injury and work to rebuild damaged tissue. These stem cells are most active during childhood, which is why children bounce back from injury so easily. As we age, stem cells become less effective and less prevalent, which can lead to chronic injury and pain. This is where Regenerative Medicine excels beyond traditional medicine. Regenerative techniques such as Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), and Stem Cells can concentrate your own repair cells at the site of injury and maximize your body’s natural healing responses. Live x-ray and ultrasound imaging then allows us to definitively place the valuable stem cells or growth factors where your body needs it most. These techniques build upon your body’s natural processes with fewer risks than conventional practices utilizing steroids and surgery.
Wellward has launched a Functional Medicine program with our beloved Dawn Jones, PA-C. Living your best life isn’t easy but we can help you get there. We start off with the Functional Biomarker Panel and the BioScore. The Functional Biomarker Panel is a simple urine test that identifies a deficiency, imbalance, or condition that can cause or worsen pain. Whether it be chronic inflammation, nerve health, or oxidative stress, to name a few – all these things can heighten your sensitivity making it difficult to focus on your overall health!
The BioScore is an objective way to evaluate your physical state and health. We use a set of tools to scientifically measure your metabolism, body composition, and functional abilities. The Bioscore is measured at various intervals, helping us track your progress and further refine your plan as you takes steps toward optimizing your fitness and health.
By combing these two tests, we use the data to formulate a specific plan to meet your individual needs and goals. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, combating genetic predisposition, or making fitness a priority in your life for the first time – we are here to help you succeed! The precision of this comprehensive approach allows you to maximize your potential. Today is the perfect time to regain control of your body and enhance your everyday experience. Wellward’s Functional Medicine combines science with healthier lifestyle choices. Live your life, better.
Traditional approaches in medicine often neglect a critical element of healing. At Wellward, we understand that the mind and body are connected. Chronic injury and pain can be overwhelming and if not properly addressed will progressively erode the hope of a better life. Physical and mental states are intertwined. Resources in the brain that help you cope with physical pain also influence your happiness on a chemical level. Serotonin and Dopamine (the “happy” chemicals in your brain) have been shown to equally deplete with either physical injury or emotional pain. Simply put, pain intensifies with depression and with chronic pain depression can form.
At Wellward we take a comprehensive approach to your health and wellbeing. We see the mind as vital to the healing process of the body. A comprehensive plan addressing both mental and physical health can not only make you feel better, but has been scientifically proven to improve your immune system and your body’s ability to bounce back from injury. At Wellward, we take an integrated approach to healing and address the whole person…whatever hurts.
I found Dr Danesh and Dr Escaloni incredibly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They took their time to hear my concerns and worked together to put forward a tailored approach to help me with my persistent back pain. I recently had a baby so finding providers who could understand how my body was still recovering was hugely important to me, and how it may relate to my recent back injury and continued pain, before it became a chronic issue. I would highly recommend this team. Thanks to you both for your help!
I have had chronic back pain for years and been through so many different doctors, specialists and treatments with no success. The Wellward staff were very thorough and gave me common sense treatments. They have everyone you need for an actual treatment plan and have set me up for success. I just wanted to let them know how much I appreciate their care and give anyone who may be on the fence a shove, go see them, they are truly amazing!
Dr. Danesh is a great physician. He spent probably an hour or more with me. He listened to all my concerns. He never interrupted but to get clarification of a statement or problem. He examined the body, which is rare with physicians these days. He went over the science of pain and the plan to rectify it. I have visited at least ten specialties in the last year, and none match the professionalism and bedside manner of Dr. Danesh. I look forward to continuing my journey with Wellward Regenerative Medicine. If you are sincere about getting help for pain, then see Dr. Danesh.
No shade to neurologists but if you have occipital or trigeminal neuralgia you better come to wellward. Everyone is caring and that’s not always a given when searching for help. Definitely recommend going to wellward!
This is a practice where proven expertise meets scientific curiosity. As an individual with a cluster of rare medical conditions, this is a winning mix. Add to that a commitment to hearing - not only listening - and genuine concern for their patients. The staff are caring and efficient. Wellward is a gem. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
I have had excellent results from the care I have received at Wellward. I have not needed more than a Tylenol to control pain in my knee. They are innovative and caring. Thanks for being in Lexington!
I’ve had all kinds of injections for my lower back in the past. Now I have pain and nerve problems. After coming to Wellward, I finally found a doctor that cares about me and doesn’t push pain meds. Give Wellward a try and a chance. They will work with you and help fix your pain.
“Walking is possible now! I came here in a wheelchair and my pain level is much more manageable. My advice is don’t put off coming to Wellward!”
I am very pleased and satisfied with the care I’ve gotten with Dr. Danesh. I was in a lot of pain when I went to see him. I could hardly do anything without hurting really bad. Now, I can exercise and do things I couldn’t do before! I’m more than satisfied–I trust him, and it’s a plus to have his wonderful staff!
The Medfit program is just what I’ve been searching for! I have been working with Brook for a while now. My waistline is getting smaller, but my muscle definition has enhanced tremendously!
