Don’t Replace . . . Regenerate
What Are The Different Types Of Regenerative Medicine?
One of the most promising and rapidly developing areas in the treatment of pain is Regenerative medicine. Regenerative Medicine is the science of living cells being used to potentially regenerate or facilitate the repair of cells damaged by disease, genetics, injury or simply aging by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms. The body can naturally heal many types of injuries, but newer techniques, such as stem cell therapy, enhance the body’s ability to heal.
The regenerative medicine method that will work best for a patient depends on their condition and other circumstances. Regenerative medicine can vary depending on how it’s administered and how those regenerative cells are produced.
WHICH CONDITIONS BENEFIT MOST FROM STEM CELL OR PRP THERAPY?
Chronic ligament and tendon sprains/strains that have failed other conservative treatment, including but not limited to:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder pain
- Tennis and golfer’s elbow
- Hip strains
- Knee sprains
- Patellar tendonitis
- Ankle sprains
- Achilles tendonitis & plantar fasciitis
- Knee, hip, and other joint osteoarthritis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction and pain
- Lumbar and cervical facet dysfunction and pain
WILL TREATMENT HELP ME AVOID SURGERY?
With any treatment option the outcome and sustained results are dependent on the extent of the injury. In the case of mild arthritis, therapy could potentially prevent the development of further degeneration. In advanced arthritic degeneration the goal would be to minimize pain and improve function. PRP if used with the stem cell therapy could highly increase the ability to avoid surgery such as joint replacements.
