Regenerative Medicine is the practice of cutting-edge, minimally invasive therapies to help your body definitively heal from acute and chronic injuries with the integration of multiple specialties of medicine. Injuries and aging joints can result in persistent, painful symptoms that are non-responsive to traditional medical treatments. Often these conditions lead to immobility, limited activity, decreased strength, weight gain, use of long-term medications, and even depression. Traditional care includes rest, ice, physical therapy, medications, and steroids. Surgery represents a more invasive treatment. Even with advanced surgical techniques, such as arthroscopy, surgery has risks and potential complications. A gap has existed between conservative treatment and surgery for some time.
Now there is a growing body of evidence in favor of Regenerative Medicine as a form of treatment for musculoskeletal problems, using a range of traditional treatments, such as pain management, sports medicine, rheumatology, rehabilitation, radiology, physical therapy, and chiropractic care, while adding biologics, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell therapy, to effectively heal and regenerate damaged tissue. These promising biologics, PRP and Stem Cell therapy, bridge the gap between conservative and invasive care and provide cutting-edge treatments for healing.
