The internet is rich with articles that talk about regenerative medicine as an emerging medical science that may help you heal an injury. Regenerative medicine focuses on cell-based treatments that enhance your body’s natural capacity to heal. These innovative, breakthrough procedures such as treatments containing growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma procedures accelerate healing for pain relief from various musculoskeletal disorders.
Regenerative Medicine and Cellular Treatments
Regenerative medicine is gaining respect in the medical community because of its potential for treating a wide range of pain-related conditions. Regenerative therapy enhances your body’s innate ability to heal damage and injuries, including musculoskeletal conditions involving muscle, tendon, and ligaments.
Procedures within this field of medicine are non-surgical treatments and provide all-natural pain relief by slowing down degeneration, reducing pain and improving your range of motion while helping you avoid the need for surgery and habit-forming pain medication or opioids.
Injections containing growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells and other healing factors encourage the body’s natural healing process. Obtained from Wharton’s Jelly contained in birth tissue, these injections are rich in cytokines, collagen, proteins, peptides, and other growth factors beneficial in regenerating injured tissue. Healthy mothers carefully screened for health issues and social history donate this birth tissue during scheduled cesarean sections.
PRP therapy, formulated from your blood, contains natural healing components that promote cellular regeneration and tissue repair.
Platelet-rich plasma injections contain a concentrated formulation of your blood platelets medically processed to net a significantly higher ratio of platelets than your normal blood.
A small sample of your blood is drawn and spun in a medical device to separate the platelet and concentrate platelets, which are later reconstituted with your plasma. This platelet-rich plasma is injected into painful joints to stimulate all-natural healing.
Regenerative medicine is being used successfully in the treatment of conditions, such as:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- Bone issues
- Aesthetics, and more
