Regenerative medicine techniques are specialized therapies that use your body’s innate healing factors to repair itself. These approaches focus on harvesting healthy cells from your body, or using donated placental stem cells and introducing them to areas with damage or disease. Once in place, these powerful cells trigger your body’s natural ability to heal.
The therapies used in regenerative medicine are a valuable tool for treating a wide range of conditions and symptoms, including:
At Restorative Physical Medicine, the team specializes in several regenerative medicine techniques, including platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) and stem cell therapy.
PRP uses the powerful growth factors in your platelets to repair damage by stimulating tissue regeneration.
After drawing your blood, the team concentrate the healing factors in your blood by spinning it in a centrifuge machine. Once prepared, they use ultrasound technology or other guidance modalities to precisely deliver your PRP injection into your pain site.
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical technique that can repair musculoskeletal injuries and age-related degenerative problems, like degenerative disc disease, tendonitis, and osteoarthritis.
You have stem cells in different areas of your body, including fat tissue and bone marrow.
These cells and their growth factors can aid in the healing and regeneration of other tissues.
