What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine helps address underlying problems around pain and discomfort. As a non-surgical and non-drug procedure, it involves injections in the area of the injured tissue. This helps boost recovery and healing for chronic and acute pain from issues.
During the treatment, a patient’s blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge. The “gold liquid” surfaces to the top and contains approximately eight times the concentration of regular platelet levels. It is injected into the area of concern to help decrease pain and eliminate discomfort symptoms.
There are a variety of different growth factors in this type of injection that stimulate healing and recovery around soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Regenerative medicine treatments are both safe and effective, plus, it’s ideal for patients suffering from conditions like:
- Patellar tendonitis, meniscus tears, and cartilage defects in the knees
- Knee arthritis (Osteoarthritis)
- Rotator cuff tendinitis
- Partial shoulder tears
- Hip girdle muscle issues,
- Hamstring tendonitis
- Lower back and neck pain
- Ligament sprains in the hands and wrist, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sacroiliac joint and facet joint arthritis
- Lateral and medial epicondylitis in the elbows (tennis and golfer’s elbow)
- Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and sprains in the ankles and feet
Why Use Regenerative Medicine Therapies?
Regenerative medicine injections offer a nice alternative to those who want to avoid surgery or drugs. Candidates for the procedure prefer a less invasive option to surgery or may simply be unable to undergo an operation.
Are Regenerative Medecine Injections SAFE?
Simply put, yes! Patients use their own blood during these treatments; therefore, there no foreign substances are injected into the body.
