What is regenerative medicine?
This involves the regeneration and natural healing of damaged body tissues. Regenerative medicine uses procedures that help in the growth of new cells, repairing the damaged tissues, and completely relieving the patient of pain. Regenerative medicine is a perfect alternative to surgery. It can help manage chronic pain, multiple forms of injured tissues, and sports or work-related injuries. Regenerative medicine not only enhances healing, but also addresses overall body wellness.
What are the regenerative medicine treatments options?
There are many types of regenerative medicine procedures available to meet a wide range of health needs and conditions. Some of the treatment options available at Sensor Medica Clinic include platelet-rich plasma and stem cells.
These refer to blank or undifferentiated cells that have the potential to develop into specialized cells able to serve as an internal repair system. Thus, they are highly effective in regenerative medicine when a patient requires particular, new cells to aid in the healing process. Although there are multiple places you can get these stem cells, the most convenient places are the fatty tissues and bone marrow. Stem cells are excellent for advanced conditions such as cartilage damage, degenerative arthritis, and rotator cuff.
This consists of high platelet concentration that serves as a source of growth factors and proteins the body requires to repair damaged or injured tissue. It is effective in accelerating the ability of your body to self-repair. The team at Sensor Medica Clinic uses your own blood sample to develop the PRP for your regenerative medicine. PRP is ideal for muscle strains, tendonitis, minor injuries, and ligament sprains.
Specialists can often use laser therapy and shockwave therapy to complement stem cells and platelet-rich plasma procedures to maximize the treatment outcome.
Are you a right candidate for regenerative medicine?
When you go for a consultation, the Sensor Medica Clinic providers conduct a comprehensive assessment to make an accurate diagnosis via diagnostic imaging then create the most effective individualized treatment plan. You might be the right candidate for regenerative medicine if you have a tendonitis problem, such as rotator cuff tear or tennis elbow, or a joint condition such as ligament tear or arthritis.
