What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a medical discipline that studies the body’s ability to heal itself. It involves the use of cells, tissues, and genes to regenerate or reconstruct damaged or diseased tissue in a patient.
What Products are used in Regenerative medicine?
We offer Stem cell and Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections for a wide range of injuries and/or pain. After exam, orthopedic testing and X-ray our ARNP determines if regenerative medicine is a good option for you. Regenerative medicine stimulates the healing process rather than just treating the symptoms. It helps restore function, increase range of motion and decrease pain. We inject Stem cells in large, damaged joints such as knees, hips, and shoulders. This begins the process of healing. The stem cells begin to regenerate damaged cartilage, tissue, and bone. PRP injections can also be injected into these joints as well as used for muscle tightness and trigger points.
What to expect at your Stem cell injection:
Stem cell injections consist of Restor+ and Rexo. Restore is sourced from the Whartons Jelly of donated umbilical cords. Within this Whartons Jelly are the “master cells” that become the cells your body needs to restore damage. Rexo is an extracellular vesicle. Extracellular vesicles are located in all of a person’s bodily fluids, and their main function is to be a part of cell signaling. Inside of them is an excellent growth factor that has an effect on influencing how the target cells grow. Because of this, extracellular vesicles are a crucial component of the body’s regeneration abilities, because they are able to relay information between cells.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Understanding the fundamental processes involved in stem cell therapy can help you make informed decisions about treatment. Stem cells are responsible for the maintenance of our body’s tissues, so they are sometimes used to replace damaged cells. Like other types of cells, stem cells have the potential to become many different specialized types of tissue. They can also migrate to specific locations in the body, which may assist in their recovery or replacement.
Is Stem Cell Therapy Effective?
There is often doubt surrounding stem cell therapy. The therapeutic potential of stem cells lies in their ability to regenerate and repair your body. This is why millions of people use stem cells from natural sources, like bone marrow and cord blood, to treat diseases. There are some exceptions, including a type of stem cell therapy that uses your own cells. One reason it can be effective is that it is personalized. Every person has different levels of damage to different organs, which means that stem cell therapy is not one-size-fits-all
Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe?
Stem cell therapy carries the potential to cause side effects, but these are relatively mild and can be managed. Common side effects include inflammation and pain, which can be treated with medications. Stem cell therapy is not known to cause long-term health risks. The treatment is relatively new and has not been widely used long enough to prove safety in large populations. Stem cell therapy is generally safe when it is done in a laboratory where it is contained. However, it is always a good idea to consult with your doctor before starting any new treatment. This allows them to monitor your health and determine if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma
to obtain PRP your blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to make it platelet rich. Those platelets are then injected at the site of injury or pain to aid the body in healing. If you have muscle tears, ligament tears, trigger points, or chronic pain, PRP may be a good option for you!
