If you’re looking for effective, all-natural pain relief, regenerative medicine may be your solution. Our regenerative treatments help your body heal on its own, just as nature intended.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
An advanced field of biological science, regenerative medicine involves naturally repairing damaged parts of the body through cell regeneration.
All types of body tissue, including cartilage, muscle, and even bone, can be regenerated. Body tissue damage can occur due to a wide variety of causes—injury, illness, or just normal wear and tear. One of the reasons why regenerative medicine is so effective is that it’s versatile. Regenerative treatment enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself, regardless of the specific type of tissue damage or cause.
When you are dealing with pain in any part of your body, regenerative medicine can provide the relief you’re looking for. Some of the more common conditions that we treat include:
- Sciatica and other kinds of back pain, often related to herniated or bulging discs
- Neck pain, such as whiplash, frequently the result of an auto accident
- Knee pain due to degraded or damaged cartilage as well as various types of injury or wear
- Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other forms of arthritis
- Nerve damage, including peripheral neuropathy and other causes of numbness or pain
- Plantar fasciitis and other kinds of foot, heel, and ankle pain
- Bone issues
- Ligament tears
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Other joint pain caused by repetitive stress
Our clinic offers two of the most popular and effective regenerative treatments: stem cells and platelet-rich plasma. Both of these treatments are safe, all-natural alternatives to more risky and invasive options, such as pharmaceutical medication or surgery.
Stem Cell Treatment
Stem cell treatment involves a process that introduces fresh young stem cells into the body. The treatments we offer at our clinic use mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s jelly. Wharton’s jelly is found in the umbilical cords of newborn babies, safely and ethically collected at the time of cesarean birth. An injection of these young stem cells into the affected area of the body delivers plenty of healing agents to repair or regenerate tissues.
Every different type of cell that makes up the human body originated from a stem cell. Stem cells start off undifferentiated, with the ability to change into whatever kind of specialized cell is needed in the body. When we’re born, our stem cells are vibrant and plentiful, but as we get older, our number of stem cells diminishes and those that remain become less efficient. These less efficient stem cells can no longer generate new cells for us at the rate required to keep our body tissues in optimal condition.
Platelet-rich plasma is another highly effective regenerative treatment, but unlike stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma is made from your own blood. The multiple growth factors contained within platelets offer powerful regenerative effects. When the platelets from your blood are concentrated into this injectable treatment, the resulting tissue regeneration can be highly effective.
Both platelet-rich plasma and stem cell injections are effective as stand-alone treatments, but we also combine them in a customized treatment plan to suit a particular condition. The doctors at our clinic will provide an evaluation and help you decide if one or both of these regenerative treatments are right for you.
