What Is Regenerative Therapy?
Joint pain, arthritis, chronic muscle strain, and other injuries can lead to stress and discomfort in the body. Pain medications, surgery, and other treatments are often used to manage the pain, but what if there was a safe way to help heal the body? Regenerative therapy is a safe effective way to repair the body, restore function, and improve mobility.
Regenerative therapy is used to aid in repairing damaged tissue within the body naturally; and is one of the best treatment methods available for repairing joints, rebuilding bones, restoring ligaments, and improving the body. Stem cells are unique as they can remain a stem cell, or they can become a different type of cell, allowing them to be used for specialized functions.
Types Of Problems Treated With Regenerative Therapy
Regenerative therapy is used on a number of conditions within the body. We recommend regenerative therapy for the following conditions:
- Ligament Injuries
- Damaged tendons
- Ankle pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Rotator cuff pain
- Joint pain
- Chronic pain
How Does It Work?
Proper treatment involves insertion of the fast-growing stem cells into the damaged tissue. Once the cells are in place, the body will begin the healing process. In some cases, we have seen these cells start healing the body within a few hours. The treatment relies on the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Some of the benefits we see from treatment include:
- Naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents
- Increase in bone density
- Little to no risk of adverse side effects
- Increased range of motion, flexibility and functionality
- Accelerated joint and tissue repair
- Highly concentrated source of stem cells for improved results
- Hyaluronic acid lubricates and stimulates new cartilage growth
Stem cells create a natural way for the body to heal. The alternatives in many cases include only temporary or more invasive procedures.
Steroids are a commonly used technique to provide temporary relief to inflicted areas, but can have negative effects on your body:
- Decrease in bone density and cartilage over time
- Limited number of procedures per area (usually no more than 3 times)
- Will eventually speed up degeneration in the joint
- Can weaken muscles and joints, leading to arthritis
Sometimes surgery on the affected area is the best course of treatment, however, many injuries do not require surgery to heal at optimal levels. There are higher risks associated with surgery and can have the following effects on your body:
- Long healing times
- Long term or permanent loss of mobility
- Higher risk of infection
- Long term or permanent loss of function
