Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is different from other forms of medicine because it works by stimulating cell and tissue growth. Acute injuries, degenerative conditions like arthritis, and general wear and tear damage can affect your musculoskeletal function, resulting in stiffness, pain, weakness, and inflammation. 

Regenerative medicine aims to rebuild damaged areas and restore your optimal function. The team at Advanced Healthcare & Injury Center, LLC, offers the following regenerative treatments:

Ultrasound-guided platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP injections include components from your blood that aid in the natural injury healing process. Platelets and growth factors within the plasma promote fast, natural healing. With ultrasound guidance, the team places your injections precisely near the injury.

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy

Mesenchymal stem cells are cells that have not yet specialized into a specific cell or tissue type. Experts harvest mesenchymal stem cells from fat to use for treatment. In a lab, they help the cells specialize, ensuring they become the necessary cell type that can help heal your injury. 

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

While considering your treatment options, it’s important to consider the benefits that regenerative medicine offers you. The advantages of regenerative treatments like PRP injections and mesenchymal stem cell therapy may include:

  • Faster healing
  • Pain reduction
  • Better functioning after healing
  • Less risk of future injuries in the region
  • Less reliance on pharmaceuticals 
  • Less need for surgery

Regenerative treatments are low-risk and rarely cause side effects, and you can undergo the procedure without reserving extra time off work for healing and recovery. You can continue your day as usual when you leave your appointment at Advanced Healthcare & Injury Center, LLC. Your provider tells you how many rounds of your regenerative treatment you’ll need to reach your goals.

Who should consider regenerative medicine for treatment?

The team at Advanced Healthcare & Injury Center, LLC, helps you consider all of your options before creating your personalized treatment plan. Regenerative medicine may be an effective treatment option for you if you have:

  • Tendinitis and tendon injuries
  • Muscle injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Arthritis and other degenerative damage

Even if your pain is chronic and doesn’t readily respond to other therapies, regenerative medicine may offer you long-term relief. Tissue regeneration resulting from regenerative treatments can improve the strength of your muscles, ligaments, and tendons, as well as the mobility and flexibility of your joints.
