Regenerative Medicine, the Future of Treatment

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 is 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.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell injections consist of Whartons jelly and Exosomes. Whartons Jelly is sourced from donated umbilical cords, which are screened and tested to ensure health and safety. Within this Whartons Jelly are Mesenchymal Stem Cells that become the cells your body needs to restore damage, such as cartilage tissue, ligament tissue, and muscle tissue. Exosomes are an extracellular vesicle which is located in all of our bodily fluids. Their main function is to be a part of cell signaling. They are like messengers, that tell your body to heal. 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 To Expect At Your Stem Cell Injection?

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. The platelets signal your body’s natural healing ability. If you have muscle tears, ligament tears, trigger points, or chronic pain, PRP may be a good option for you!
