What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine helps your body heal by repairing and regenerating damaged tissue in the body. Human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/P) are used that contain a combination of growth factors, cytokines, hyaluronic acid, and exosomes. These ingredients help initiate the healing process inside the damaged tissue allowing healing to occur in areas of the body that were once thought impossible.
PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) is another type of Regenerative Medicine treatment we provide that utilizes your own blood to help repair damaged tissue. PRP has been successfully used for decades now, with many professional athletes using it to help accelerate the healing process and return to play time.
How does Regenerative Medicine work?
Regenerative medicine HCT/P (human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products) begin to go to work immediately once injected into the damaged tissue. They help reduce the “bad inflammation” that contributes to pain and discomfort and they also stimulate the “good inflammation” that is part of the healing process. We use these treatments to repair and regenerative tissue in joints like the knee, hip, shoulder, and more.
This process is much like planting a seed in a garden and waiting for it to grow and may take several weeks to several months to repair the damaged area.
Conditions treated by Regenerative Medicine?
The field of Regenerative Medicine is rapidly expanding with research currently being performed for almost every health condition known to mankind.
Since 2017 we have been successfully using Regenerative Medicine to treat joint conditions such as:
- Knee Pain / Degeneration
- Hip Pain / Degeneration
- Shoulder Pain / Rotator Cuff
- And more
Why Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is a great option for people wanting to get out of pain, get off pain medication, and avoid surgery. The “old” model of healthcare was designed around giving the patient relief of symptoms, often through the use of oral medication taken daily or steroid injections every few months. With temporary relief being the goal of these “old” treatments, they did nothing to repair or regenerative the damaged tissue in the body.
With advancements in healthcare research and technology in recent years, the “new” model of healthcare recognizes that pain is a symptom of damaged tissue and treatments are now designed to repair and regenerative the damaged tissue. Once the tissue is repaired the pain, and need for pain medication, goes away.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, then Regenerative Medicine could be the right solution for you! At Back Pain & Joint Center of Texas, we have Regenerative Medicine experts that can help you alleviate pain and facilitate healing.
