What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge treatment which utilizes the body’s natural properties to treat painful joint and muscle issues, as well as conditions related to shoulder, hip, knee, elbow and back injuries.
Regenerative medicine is both revolutionary and conservative and takes the approach of naturally healing the body. We refer to it as the “Whole foods of Medicine” because it’s organic and healthy. By focusing on the body’s ability to heal itself, regenerative medicine takes those healing properties and focuses them directly to the point of injury.
The two types of regenerative medicine we focus on are Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy.
Depending on your age, health, and condition, you may be a candidate for PRP or stem cell therapy if you suffer from any of the following conditions:
- Chronic pain
- Joint injuries
- Osteoarthritis or Degenerative arthritis
- Arthritic joints
- Sports injuries
- Ligament, cartilage and tendon injuries
- Chronic plantar fasciitis
- Pelvic pain and instability
- Rotator cuff tears
- ACL injuries
- Trigger points
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Hair loss
What you should know about platelet rich plasma, a.k.a. PRP . . .
- PRP is a concentration of your own blood platelets.
- PRP stimulates native cells and native stem cells to repair when administered.
- An injection of PRP gives your body a natural boost!
- In use since 1987.
- No risk of rejection because it’s the patient’s own blood.
What you should know about stem cells . . .
- Stem cells are multipotent, this means they can grow new tissue. This is how the body heals injuries.
- Stem cells have the ability to self-renew.
- We can use our own stem cells which are stored in our bone marrow and adipose tissue.
- Stem cells are easy to obtain.
- Stem cells treat all of the sources of pain in and near the joint: nerve, soft tissue/capsule, and tendon.
Regenerative therapy offers the following benefits:
- increased healing potential
- decreased pain
- increased function
- quicker recovery time
- decreased time away from exercise, sports or daily activities
- low risk, non-invasive treatment, potentially eliminating surgery
Athletes and celebrities have been using PRP and stem cells for years, this list includes:
- Tiger Woods
- Kobe Bryant
- Peyton Manning
- Alex Rodriguez
- Darren McCarty
- David Ortiz
- Christiano Ronaldo
- Angelina Jolie
- Kim Kardashian West
