Imagine if you could magnify your body’s natural ability to regenerate tissue with a simple injection. After the muscle tear or damage is healed, your body will no longer send those excruciating pain signals that can debilitate you even further. Athletes have been using regenerative therapy for years to regain their performance after a game or training injury. The knowledge that regenerative therapy is available for a wide range of injuries is not yet ubiquitous. Many practices would still like to delude patients that they need expensive surgeries and drugs to manage chronic symptoms or a hard recovery. Thankfully, you can experience pain relief through natural measures.
How It Works
The theory behind the most common regenerative therapy is essentially using a concentrated injection of your body’s own growth factors to hasten the natural recovery process. The growth factors are signaling proteins that are released from the plasma cells and are able to reconstruct different types of tissues such as joints or cartilage. The process begins when patients have their blood drawn and separated in a centrifuge. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentrate is then injected into the localized injury site to order the rapid reconstruction. Although stem cells are drawn to the injury sites because they are the building blocks for new cellular material, platelet-rich plasma therapy should not be confused with stem cell therapy.
We are proud to offer both PRP therapy and stem cell therapy here at WellnessPlus Medical Center. Regenerative therapy is often used today to help patients experience pain relief and recover faster from orthopedic surgery, fractures, and tendon injuries. The processes used will continue to be a large part of the regenerative therapy spectrum for years to come.
