Regenerative medicine focuses on repairing damaged tissues or organs. Replacing and restoring damaged tissues is often done with treatments designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing capabilities.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
The human body is amazing in its ability to repair itself from injuries such as broken bones or a laceration of the skin. The liver is even capable of growing back after a piece has been taken out. Regenerative medicine goes further than just typical treatments, it’s focus is on tapping into the body’s natural healing abilities and stimulating the body to heal other areas more effectively. Regenerative medicine treatments are designed to help the body to heal without the need for surgery or heavy medication (in some patients). This method supports the body in replenishing itself back into a healthy state of wellbeing. Our goal is to restore function, mobility, and health to the body with faster recovery time from surgery and other treatment methods for pain management. Over the few short years where this method has been in action, these advancements have shown to greatly expand the span and quality of thousands of people’s lives.

Regenerative Medicine Treatment Methods
One therapy is cartilage regeneration and is for injuries where there is cartilage damage, regenerative medicine can be beneficial with the recovery and to strengthen all cartilage areas throughout the body. Cartilage usually does not heal well on it’s own because there usually isn’t enough blood supply. Another is called prolotherapy and is when the doctor injects a watery solutions such as saline into the injured area. This therapy is beneficial for injuries involving joints and connective tissues. Common injuries this treats is whiplash, arthritis, and disc problems. It can be performed on most areas of the body. The injection is designed to irritate the injury, then the body begins the healing process and replaces the damages tissue with new healthy tissue. This treatment resolves the symptoms as well as recovery of the injury. Other treatment methods include stem cell therapy and PRP.
We use stem cell therapy to help repair damaged tissue and stimulate the body’s natural healing capabilities. For this therapy the stem cells are repurposed to other healthy cells the body needs to repair any apparent injuries. Stem cell therapy will heal injuries and eliminates pain, restoring range of motion. Stem cell treatments are targeted to problem areas, making it easy to target common ailments many patients face such as knee, hip, and shoulder pain.
