Regenerative Medicine Q&A
What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine refers to natural treatments that harness your body’s healing capabilities to regenerate cells and heal damaged tissue. Treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy can accelerate healing from an injury or after surgery, and repair soft tissue damage caused by arthritis or other degenerative diseases.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can develop into many different cell types. During stem cell therapy, stem cells are injected into the damaged or injured area of your body.
The injected stem cells develop into the cells needed to repair your wound, replace diseased or damaged tissue, and relieve pain and inflammation.
What is PRP therapy?
Instead of using stem cells, PRP therapy harnesses the natural growth proteins found in the platelets in your blood. Your provider extracts a blood sample, spins it in a centrifuge where the platelets become concentrated, and reinjects the highly concentrated solution into the treatment area.
The growth factors in the PRP go to work repairing diseased or damaged tissue and speeding up healing and recovery from an injury or surgery.
What conditions can regenerative medicine treat?
Regenerative medicine treatments like PRP and stem cell therapy can treat several health conditions, such as:
- Skin, muscle, and soft tissue injuries
- Degenerative diseases like arthritis
- Sports injuries
- Congenital disabilities
- Foot or leg wounds from diabetes
- Bone, cartilage, joint, or nerve degeneration
Regenerative treatments are becoming more and more popular for the treatment of pain and inflammation in the hips, back, shoulders, wrists, elbows, knees, and ankles.
What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?
Instead of merely addressing your symptoms, regenerative medicine treats the cause of your condition. While many treatments may offer temporary relief of pain or inflammation, regenerative therapies repair the damaged tissues, providing a long-term solution.
Additionally, because stem cell therapy, PRP, and other regenerative medicine treatments harness your body’s growth factors and healing capabilities, there is almost no risk of an adverse reaction or many of the side effects that you might experience with medication.
