What is regenerative therapy, sometimes called regenerative medicine, and how can it help you heal? Regenerative therapy is a branch of medical science that helps to promote natural healing and regeneration in damaged tissue and cartilage within the body.
Since the ability to heal rapidly tends to fade with age (especially in certain areas, like joints), this line of medicine is giving new hope to patients who are suffering from many types of injury or disease.
Some types of discomfort that can be helped with regenerative medicine include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sports injury
- Knee pain
- And many more
Regenerative Therapy and Cellular Treatments
One of the most talked about treatments in this arena is regenerative cellular treatments. What is a regenerative cell?
This is a particular type of cell that is special for two major reasons:
- It can divide and replicate itself repeatedly, and
- Regenerative cells actually have the potential to benefit many other types of cells that the body may need more of (tissue, cartilage, tendon, etc.).
So when you have an area that has been damaged or worn down, regenerative medicine can breathe new life into it, so to speak, with regenerative cells that come into the area and give exactly what is needed to heal or repair it. Our doctors do this through a non-invasive, outpatient procedure that can have amazing results.
The regenerative cells that we use at our practice are derived from the umbilical cord tissue that is donated by healthy mothers after a C-section birth. The tissue is rich with brand new, potent regenerative cells. These younger cells mean quicker and more effective healing than the older cells found in an adult patient to be reintroduced into their system elsewhere.
What are platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP injections)?
A PRP injection involves extracting a small sample of blood directly from the patient and processing it in such a way as to separate the platelets from the other cells. From this, an incredibly effective serum can be derived in order to treat virtually any area of your body. This substance is then injected into the site, aiding the body’s natural, self-healing procedures.
