Regenerative medicine is a way of regenerating or replacing human cells and tissue that have become injured or diseased. This includes many pain conditions related to aging or trauma. Young, healthy cells are introduced into the body to bolster a patient’s own cells and promote healing.
Our doctors are highly experienced in using the best regenerative therapy practices to treat pain at its source. Whether you’re suffering from neck pain, back pain, joint stiffness or other discomfort, our regenerative medicine treatments aim to ease your pain rapidly and naturally.
In as few as a single treatment, you may find significant pain relief without drugs or surgery. Deriving cells from trusted, regulated sources, or your even own blood, our doctors know how to target painful areas with healing agents as a noninvasive alternative to pain medication and risky surgery.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative therapy is a wide-ranging branch of medicine. It uses different natural agents in the body to restore damaged tissue.
Our doctors choose to use some of the most effective types in their practice:
- Regenerative Cell Therapy – Using mesenchymal cells extracted from Wharton’s jelly, the regenerative cellular tissue of the umbilical cord, our doctors can help speed up healing of injured tissue.
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) – Concentrated elements from your own blood are isolated and amplified to treat many chronic pain conditions including arthritis, fibromyalgia and neuropathy.
- Amniotic fluid – The amnion, or sac that holds a pregnancy, contains a potent blend of growth factors, collagen substrates, targeted messenger cells called cytokines and other substances.
Together, these act as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Mesenchymal cells found in human umbilical cords are young, vibrant cells and a potent source of regenerative tissue cells. They are found in a substance within the cord called Wharton’s jelly and are rich in proteins, collagen, cytokines and other regenerative substances.
Injections containing growth factors and mesenchymal cells have a unique ability to target degraded tissue and turn on the body’s reparative powers.
Wharton’s jelly derived mesenchymal cells and umbilical allografts are obtained from carefully screened, consenting donors after healthy cesarean births.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is derived from your own blood to promote cell activity including inflammation and other responses needed to heal wounds. A small amount of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets.
These are the blood’s transport cells and in higher than normal concentrations, they possess significant healing properties. Unlike injections containing growth factors and mesenchymal cells, PRP can be used as treatments for neuropathy, fibromyalgia, joint pain and repairing damaged tissue.
Because platelet rich plasma comes from your own body, there is almost no chance of rejection. The PRP process has almost no downtime either. You can resume your normal activities right after treatments.
If you have tried physical therapy, massage and medication for pain without the results you want, regenerative cellular tissue treatment and PRP may be the natural alternative to surgery that you are looking for.
