Are you wondering if regenerative medicine can help with your condition? Lately, more and more cases of phenomenal results from things like “stem cell treatments” and “platelet-rich plasma injections” are reported. Would these treatments work for you?
Whatever your condition, it is likely that one or another type of regenerative treatment can help you. Our patients have experienced excellent results for conditions including:
- Knee pain from damaged or degraded cartilage or other causes
- Back pain, including sciatica and herniated discs
- Peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage)
- Foot pain, including plantar fasciitis
- Bone issues
- Joint pain (often in the shoulder, elbow, or hip)
- Neck pain
- Torn ligaments
- Other conditions causing pain or numbness
Our medical clinic specializes in regenerative medicine, and we also offer other highly effective forms of treatment that often combine well with regenerative medicine to form a customized treatment plan. Come in for a free consultation at our clinic to learn more.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a field of innovative biological science that focuses on repairing damage to the body by encouraging natural cell regeneration.
Body tissues can be damaged in several ways, often due to injury, but also because of illness or the natural aging process. Regenerative therapies are designed to reverse this damage by stimulating your body’s inherent healing power.
We offer the two most popular forms of regenerative treatment: regenerative tissue that contains stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Both are highly effective alternatives to conventional treatments, such as surgery or steroid medication.
Regenerative Cellular Tissue Contains More Than Stem Cells
There are stem cells in all of us. All of the other types of cells in our bodies originate from stem cells. But it is an unfortunate fact of life that our stem cells start to lose their effectiveness as we age. They are no longer able to generate new cells for us as well as they once did. Regenerative cell therapy is a treatment that injects young stem cells and growth factors into the damaged area to promote healing.
Our medical clinic uses mesenchymal stem cells sourced from strictly regulated tissue banks. The cells are derived from Wharton’s jelly, which is safely obtained from the umbilical cords of carefully screened donors during planned cesarean births.
When these young cells come into contact with your damaged tissue, they provide an immediate regenerative boost, jump-starting your body’s healing response.
Platelets are tiny plate-shaped cell fragments concentrated in the blood. Platelets contain multiple growth factors that help to accelerate regenerative healing.
Platelet-rich plasma is enriched plasma made from your own blood. A sample of your blood is drawn and refined to achieve a high concentration of platelets. The plasma is injected into the affected area, where it works to ease inflammation and repair damaged tissue.
Which Regenerative Treatment is More Effective?
Stem cell treatments and platelet-rich plasma injections are both remarkably effective at treating damaged tissue. They are often combined into a treatment plan where appropriate, based on the individual needs of the patient.
