There are a spectrum of cutting edge therapeutic techniques used to naturally treat and heal the cause of a painful condition rather than masking the symptom. The goals of regenerative injection therapies are to accelerate your own body’s natural ability to heal itself, improve function, and lessen pain. Injuries and conditions commonly treated by regenerative injection therapies include:
Regenerative therapies are done at our office and take about an hour. Patients return home the same day and are often able to work the following day.
Stem cells are “undifferentiated” cells, which allow them to develop into another type of cell that is required to repair or replace damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy can repair tissues that are too damaged to heal on their own. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissues. We obtain stems cells from the patient’s own tissue. These concentrated stem cells are then injected into the patient’s damaged tendon or joint.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patient’s own blood to rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage. Platelets normally circulate within the blood stream and are responsible for blood clotting and initiating a healing response in an acute injury. Many acute injuries do not heal adequately and can lead to chronic pain and loss of function. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows us to harvest the patient’s own platelets and re-inject those platelets into the site of the injury. As a results, the damaged tissue begins to heal. While most patients may benefit, individual results may vary and not everyone is helped.
