Regenerative medicine uses the body’s own innate ability to heal itself. Regenerative medicine focuses on non-surgical procedures that stimulate or enable your own regenerative cells to repair damaged or injured tissue and muscles, reduce inflammation and swelling, and can help reduce or even eliminate pain.
What Can Regenerative Medicine Do for You?
Pain and injury do not discriminate. We are all vulnerable and susceptible as our bodies are constantly enduring physical strain. When we are young, we can generally bounce back pretty quickly from most minor injuries with the help of young and healthy regenerative cells. Unfortunately, as we age, so do these cells, making it more difficult for them to regenerate and heal the damaged area.
Regenerative medicine offers non-invasive therapies that stimulate the adult cells to replicate and grow at a faster rate allowing for a more speedy recovery process and have shown incredible results for a vast spectrum of conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel
- Torn ligaments
- Bulging discs
Regardless of what type of injury you have, regenerative therapies can offer natural pain relief while addressing the pain source to heal the damage, allowing for longer-lasting results and helping prevent further injury.
How Does it Work?
Mesenchymal tissues are found in Wharton’s Jelly, a substance that is present in the umbilical cords of newborn infants. The tissue is donated by consenting mothers. The collection of this tissue is completely harmless to both mother and child.
Mesenchymal tissues are potent, young, and healthy. By injecting them into an injured or damaged area, they stimulate regeneration and help the body to repair rapidly, enabling patients to begin getting relief.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is another preferred therapy. This treatment uses the patient’s blood cells to help the body repair. The PRP procedure is pretty simple and straightforward. A small sample of the patient’s blood is taken during the doctor’s visit. The blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and red blood cells. Once separated, the platelets are re-injected into the injured area. By re-introducing this concentration of platelets, regeneration can be induced, and the cells begin restoration more rapidly.
Regenerative medicine offers patients who suffer from many types of ailments real relief from their pain without the need for surgery or medications.
