Regenerative medicine uses substances found in your own body to promote healing and repair damage. These substances are rich in growth factors that stimulate cellular growth.
What makes regenerative medicine unique is that it’s a nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment that can help you regain the function of your damaged joints, including connective tissues, and muscles.
There are several types of regenerative medicine, but the two most common include:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood to repair physical damage. Your provider takes a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. They then inject your own PRP directly into your injured or damaged tissues. This sparks your body’s natural healing response to accelerate the process.
Mesenchymal stem cells can become other types of cells to repair tissues such as ligaments and bones. When injected into your injured tissues, mesenchymal stem cells stimulate your body’s natural healing response to repair damaged tissues and create new healthy cells.
When combined with restorative treatments like physical therapy and chiropractic care, regenerative medicine can significantly improve neck, back, and joint pain resulting from arthritis, sports and auto injuries, and other conditions.
Chronic pain often stems from injuries that didn’t heal properly. If you’re struggling with pain months or years after an injury, regenerative medicine can help you regain strength, function, and mobility in your injured area.
A major benefit of regenerative medicine is that it can help you avoid the risk that go along with surgery and addictive pain medications. Unlike surgery, regenerative medicine requires no downtime. After your first injection, you can typically return to your normal activities right away.
With PRP therapy, the therapeutic serum is derived from your own blood plasma and platelets, which makes the risk of an allergic reaction extremely low.
