Regenerative medicine is very different than traditional medical procedures as it is able to regenerate what has degenerated in the body–nerve, tissue, bone, cartilage, etc. Unlike prescription medications that are merely band aids for symptoms or surgeries which have high failure rates, regenerative medicine therapies allow patients to come in for a one-time procedure with long-term effects.
Depending on your age and the amount of degeneration you have, our expert staff will be able to recommend either stem cell or platelet-rich plasma therapy for your condition.
The Body’s Master Cells
Stem cells are called the body’s “master cells” because they develop into all other cells. What’s amazing is that stem cells can become NEW cartilage, ligaments, bone, brain cells, blood cells, and all organ cells, including heart, liver, pancreas, lung, and any organ cell your body may need.
Stem cells don’t just mask your symptoms. Stem cells heal the underlying cause of your problem. They get to the root of it, regenerate it, and bring NEW LIFE to it! Therefore, they have the potential to repair, restore, replace and regenerate any cell in the adult body.
Stem cell therapy helps to treat:
- Joint pain–shoulder, hip, knee
- Rotator cuff syndrome/tears
- Frozen Shoulder
- Knee pain
- Meniscus tears
- Bone spurs
- Low back pain
- Disc problems
- Sexual dysfunction
Get out of pain, regain your health, and maximize your health for the rest of your life.
PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY
One of the most popular nonsurgical regenerative medicine treatments these days is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. It is favored by sports medicine physicians, orthopedists, and many other doctors and specialists because of its versatility and the amazing results it delivers.
PRP therapy works by harnessing the healing power of growth factor proteins contained within the platelets in your blood. These growth factors are what drive healing in your body. When delivered in concentrated amounts to an area of injury in your body, they essentially supercharge your body’s natural healing response – enabling you to heal faster and more completely than usual.
This is especially helpful after an injury or when needed to encourage the regeneration of ligaments, tendons, and sometimes even cartilage. It pairs well with a stem cell therapy injection as a supplement/boost.
PRP therapy has been used successfully in patients with soft tissue injuries and conditions such as:
- ACL tears
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Golfer’s elbow
- Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome
- Pitcher’s elbow
- Plantar fasciitis
- Post-surgical recovery assistance
- Sexual dysfunction
- Shin splints
- Sprains and strains
- Tennis elbow
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
PRP therapy is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Some of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the growth-factor-rich platelets from the rest of the cells in your blood. This concentrated quantity of platelets – up to 10 times greater than what is normally found in the blood – is then injected at the site of your injury. The growth factors signal your body to step up it’s healing in that area. After the procedure, you are free to return to your daily life as usual.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY PROCESS?
The best part about regenerative medicine injections like PRP is there is virtually no downtime and no side-effects. PRP is a safe, natural way to speed healing. It is less expensive than surgery and has none of the complications associated with a surgical procedure or prescription pain medications.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE?
The number of PRP treatments necessary to achieve the desired results may vary, and it can be 3-4 weeks after a treatment before results are seen.
