Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options
Major surgeries have serious risks, painful recovery times, and a lower success rate. If you experience chronic pain, degenerative issues, or a recent injury, a natural alternative exists.
Regenerative medicine is a non-invasive treatment option that not only decreases pain but also improves your mobility and functionality. Dr. Aaron Smith, D.C. practices regenerative medicine, like PRP and stem cell therapy, to help patients return to a healthier lifestyle.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine replaces damaged tissue and organs resulting from trauma or disease. By combining biology, chemistry, medicine, genetics, and more, regenerative medicine helps amplify the healing process by targeting the root cause of the problem.
Regenerative medicine is ideal for patients who have chronic pain and degenerative issues but have had little success with traditional methods. Common problem areas that regenerative medicine help includes:
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Knee, shoulder and hip osteoarthritis
- Tendon and ligament injuries
- Degenerative arthritis
- Joint disease
Regenerative Medicine Benefits
Whether you experience acute pain or suffer from a degenerative disease, regenerative medicine can alleviate your pain and help your body restore to its original state. If you’re a candidate for regenerative medicine, you can expect the additional benefits:
- Accelerated healing: Your body only focuses on the damaged area to self-heal and jumpstart the regenerative process
- Increased functionality: Through the production of collagen, your tendons and tissues strengthen and improve your range of motion
- Reduced risk of injury: Strengthened tendons minimize your potential risk and pain so you can return to activities sooner
What Does Regenerative Medicine Concentrate On?
Regeneration medicine is a non-invasive therapy that allows you to feel the positive effects on a day-to-day basis. At Ortho Injury and Wellness Center, patients eligible for regeneration medicine are treated with:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy promotes soft-tissue regeneration by injecting the platelets into the targeted area. PRP therapy promotes natural proteins, collagen production, and other bioactive growth factors. Through this process, PRP stimulates new blood vessels to form and help repair, tighten, and strengthen damaged tissues and joints.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are your body’s building blocks and leverage the natural ability of your body to self-heal. You’ll find adult stem cells in the brain, bone marrow, skeletal muscles, and more. They are injected into the source of your pain or the degenerative target area.
