Some of the most common personal injuries that can occur are injuries caused by car accidents. If you have experienced even a minor car accident injury, you should get it checked out. When left untreated, it can eventually lead to more complications throughout life and be more difficult to find treatment and comfort.
Significant emotional or physical pain from a car accident, whether minor or severe, can have long-lasting effects on the body. Some of the most common injuries caused by car accidents include whiplash, nerve damage, back or joint injury, and discomfort across the body.
Automobile injuries are not always visible. There may be deeper underlying damage. Luckily, there are effective treatment options available to alleviate pain and discomfort, such as regenerative medicine.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is an effective and alternative solution that helps to restore and rejuvenate damaged tissue to help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall health and body function. The available therapies include regenerative tissue injections and PRP therapy.
Regenerative tissue therapy – This relatively modern area of medicine utilizes the regenerative properties found in donated umbilical cord tissue collected after a cesarean-section birth. Upon injection, the qualities found in this regenerative tissue help to restore the health of damaged organs, joints, and cartilage. This therapy has helped many patients find relief from pain associated with extreme chronic conditions, including those brought on by a car accident injury.
PRP Therapy – Platelet-rich plasma injections are also highly beneficial in helping to treat a car accident injury and bring about rapid relief. These platelets contain a variety of growth factors that are essential to the healing and restoration process. PRP therapy involves extracting a small blood sample, spinning the sample through a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the healing platelets, and then injecting the patients’ own highly concentrated plasma into the affected area of injury. PRP therapy helps to activate the healing power of the body for effective pain relief.
