Regenerative Medicine is a branch of medicine that creates and utilizes living, functional tissues to repair or replace damaged or deficient structures in the body. It is a broad term that includes several different forms of treatment. The applications in musculoskeletal medicine are vast and include conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendinitis, muscle strains, joint injuries, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and much more. They offer the benefit of minimally-invasive procedures with little-to-no downtime.
Amniotic Stem Cells
Human tissue harvested from the amniotic membrane of healthy donors at the time of scheduled C-section. This tissue carries extremely strong regenerative and anti-inflammatory stem cells. Have been shown to aid in both rapid recovery and decrease pain.
A protease inhibitor found naturally in the bloodstream that is a powerful inhibitor of the catabolic process associated with wear and tear, such as arthritis. The process uses your own blood with the latest technology in filtering to isolate and concentrate this effective molecule.
Extracellular vesicles that are harvested from stem cells. These vesicles contain chemical messengers that can stop inflammation and upregulate healing. Used for their effectiveness in decreasing inflammation and promoting new cell growth/repair.
Also known as Proliferation Therapy or Regenerative Injection Therapy, this is a treatment of tissue with the injection of an irritant solution (usually Dextrose) into damaged tissue. This helps to promote natural healing by stimulating your inherent healing cascades.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
A process in which a special centrifuge is used to separate your own blood into an injectable platelet layer. Similar to Prolotherapy, it stimulates healing, but it has the boost of your own natural platelets and growth factors that are important tools in the repair of damaged tissue.
