Regenerative Medicine Q & A
What is regenerative medicine?
Sometimes your body can’t completely recover from an injury, a chronic condition, or maybe even a birth defect. Regenerative medicine focuses on promoting the renewal of damaged tissues. It gives your body the help it needs to heal itself by generating cell growth in areas where your tissue is no longer functioning.
Two of the fastest-growing treatments are platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy. The team at Florida Medical Pain Management uses both treatments to quickly and safely heal your body.
What conditions does regenerative medicine treat?
Regenerative medicine helps with a wide range of conditions. It can benefit you if you suffer from chronic disease or pain like:
- Bone conditions
- Heart failure
- Nerve damage
If you suffer from an injury, regenerative medicine can help with the following:
- Torn or pulled muscles
- Torn or pulled ligaments
- Tennis elbow
Talk to your doctor at Florida Medical Pain Management about your condition and have an evaluation to find out the right regenerative medicine therapy for you.
What are the different types of regenerative medicine?
Platelet-rich plasma promotes healing by taking a sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge, which separates out the platelets containing the growth factor proteins. The platelets are then recombined with your blood plasma and injected into the affected area to accelerate your body’s healing process.
Stem cell therapy
Stem cell therapy is used to help grow any kind of cell that your body needs to promote healing. Stem cells are unspecialized but have the ability to develop into cells of different types. When your doctor injects stem cells into a place in your body that needs repairing, they can regenerate in that area and produce new tissue.
What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is often a preferred method of therapy for its benefits and effective results.
- Enhances healing
- Reduces pain
- Increases functionality
- Faster recovery
- Reduces risk of future pain
With regenerative medicine, your doctor is able to focus on the root cause of your pain rather than just treating your symptoms.
