What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine utilizes the body’s natural healing properties to heal itself from the inside. Pain management physicians and specialists diagnose musculoskeletal injuries that can benefit from regenerative medicine. These types of therapy help heal long-term pain reducing the need for pain medications. This can help improve not only the patients physical pain, but the psychological effects of long-term pain medication use.
Many patients find regenerative medicine to be more beneficial and less invasive than traditional surgical repairs. Physicians often prefer this form of pain management treatment as it offers patients a short term treatment with a long term pain solution.
Types of Regenerative Medicine
Stimulates the body’s capability to restore itself for the treatment of conditions such as Facet Syndrome, Knee and Hip Arthritis, Tendinitis, Bursitis, Osteoarthritis, Tennis Elbow, Sprains, Degenerative Disc Disease, and Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.
A local anesthetic is injected into the ligament, tendon, or joint affected by the condition. The injection stimulates cell growth to relieve pain long-term.
Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy
Uses platelet and stem cells to regenerate soft tissue damage for conditions such as Osteoarthritis, Pelvic Pain, ACL injuries, Tennis Elbow, Tendinitis, Ligament and Rotator Cuff Tears.
A small sample of blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to extract platelet cells. The lab technician then injects these cells into the injury site to begin the healing process.
Stem Cell Therapy
Is the injection of stem cells into a damaged tissue, ligaments, cartilage, bone, and tendons used in the treatment of Meniscal Tears, Labral Tears, Tendinitis, Torn Rotator Cuff, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Achilles Tendinitis, Foot Pain, Non-healing Fractures, Osteoarthritis.
