Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a form of tissue engineering and biochemistry that uses mesenchymal stem cells to repair and replace damaged soft tissues. Mesenchymal stem cells are derived from umbilical cord tissue from healthy, full-term mothers and infants who are prescreened to donate tissues. The mesenchymal stem cells are collected, washed, tested, and frozen to use in injections to repair damaged or chronically inflamed muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, and nerve.

How does regenerative medicine work?

Regenerative medicine products begin working to repair damage to your tissues as soon as they’re injected into the site of your injury or pain. The mesenchymal stem cells first scan the tissues in the treatment site to identify which tissues are present and injured. The mesenchymal stem cells then create a healing response in tissues, like muscles, ligaments, and cartilage, to repair and replace the damaged tissues.

This process may take several weeks or months to complete since mesenchymal stem cells work on a cellular level. The team may recommend multiple treatments for large areas or complex diagnoses.

What conditions can benefit from regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine can help with a variety of soft tissue and joint-based conditions, including:

 

  • Chronic joint pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle strains or tears
  • Ligament sprains or tears
  • Cartilage damage caused by arthritis or trauma

 

The team can determine if regenerative medicine is right for you through a comprehensive physical exam and consultation. Regenerative medicine may be combined with therapies such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), cold laser therapy, and chiropractic care to relieve pain and inflammation without the need for drugs or surgery.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an option for people who suffer from chronic muscle or joint pain and want to avoid taking long-term pain medication prescriptions or having surgery. Since regenerative medicine uses naturally occurring mesenchymal stem cells, it’s less likely to be rejected by your immune system than other types of injections.

Mesenchymal stem cells also have components that may help reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain so you can get relief sooner. In many cases of chronic pain, inflammation and swelling prevent your tissues from healing properly. With regenerative medicine, you can get relief from the inflammation and swelling so that your body can heal naturally.
