What is Regenerative Medicine? Regenerative medicine is a branch of natural medicine that includes Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal cells and PRP, or platelet-rich plasma therapy. These all-natural treatments are used to repair and rebuild damaged tissue to facilitate healing and pain relief without the need for risky surgery or dangerous pain medication. Regenerative medicine addresses, then treats the root cause of pain for a more thorough healing and long-lasting results.
When you make an appointment at our medical clinic, we will create a custom plan for a range of different issues such as knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, joint pain and more.
Regenerative Medicine Treatments
Our regenerative medicine treatments include both regenerative cellular tissue derived from Wharton’s Jelly and PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. Wharton’s Jelly is a substance found in umbilical cords that contains mesenchymal cells that are ideal for regenerative treatments.
We collect cells from donated umbilical cords from consenting mothers who are screened for social history and health beforehand. This helps us ensure we get the highest quality cells for treatment.
These young cells contain a wide range of healing properties that include:
- Extracellular matrix
- Growth factors
- And more
As we get older, these crucial healing components diminish, but in the tissue we use, they are vital and potent and at the height of their healing power. When they are injected into your damaged or degraded tissue, they quickly get to work rejuvenating and repairing to treat the issue and relieve your pain.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
With platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, a sample of your own blood is used to promote several different types of cell activity that are important when it comes to healing. This includes inflammation, remodeling and proliferation.
After the blood sample is taken, it is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma. The result is a solution of highly concentrated platelets that has up to five times the number of platelets found in normal blood. These platelets are then injected directly into your damaged tissue to facilitate the healing process.
How Our Regenerative Treatments Help Relieve Your Pain Naturally
Both of these regenerative treatments are effective alternatives to surgery and pain medication. The reason they work so well for pain relief is because they target and treat the underlying cause of your pain, not just the pain itself. With conventional treatment, pain medication is used to mask the symptoms, but the underlying reason for the pain is never addressed. This can set off a dangerous cycle, where you need to medicate every time it wears off and the pain returns.
It’s important to keep in mind that the pain is just a consequence or by-product of the condition. When the condition is treated, the pain will have no reason to exist. This is natural pain relief.
