WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
The goal of regenerative medicine is to replace damaged tissue caused by disease, trauma, or congenital problems. While current treatment options focus predominantly on treating the symptoms; regenerative medicine aims to cure. Imagine alleviating your back pain without having to get spine surgery.
Regenerative medicine is effective in restoring damaged tissues and healing injured tissue; not just masking the pain. There is hope for those living in chronic pain as previously untreatable injuries and diseases now have treatment options: Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) and Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies.
Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA) stem cell therapy takes an element of your bone marrow that has been shown to promote natural healing and reduce pain. It is effective in treating degenerative disc diseases, spinal facet pain, and sciatica, among other conditions.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated from blood and bone marrow and then used to speed up the body’s natural healing process of musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are prepared by taking the patient’s own blood and dividing platelets to stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells. A number of disc diseases, nerve inflammation, and damage to the sacroiliac joints have seen improvement with PRP therapy.
