Regenerative medicine includes innovative treatments that enhance your body’s natural capacity to heal. In Jupiter, Florida, we use breakthrough procedures such as treatments containing growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma therapy to accelerate natural healing from various musculoskeletal disorders.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine has tremendous potential to treat a wide range of pain-related conditions. Regenerative therapy enhances your body’s ability to heal injuries, including broken bones or injured muscle, tendon and ligaments. These non-surgical treatments offer all-natural pain relief by slowing down degeneration, reducing pain, improving movement to help you avoid surgery and a lifetime of pain medication prescriptions.
Regenerative medicine treatments include:
- Regenerative cell therapy or injections using stem cells – Read on below.
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy – Read on below.
- Amniotic fluid therapy – Amnion injections are composed of collagens, growth factors, cytokines, lipids, carbohydrates, hyaluronic acids, polyamides, amino acids and other essential agents. Amniotic tissue is obtained during C-sections from healthy, consenting mothers. Amnion injections provide your body with elements that are vital to tissue regeneration, which will help you heal and with anti-inflammatories, which will help lessen your pain.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy is a regenerative medicine procedure that utilizes your body’s natural healing mechanism to treat various conditions. Stem cells can develop into any of the different cell types of the body. These cells renew and repair diseased or damaged tissue and have shown promising results in the treatment of various musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.
Stem cells can be harvested from various parts of your body, but we find that donated mesenchymal stem cells are highly effective for our patients. Our injections are created from samples sourced from umbilical allografts. Inside umbilical cords is Wharton’s jelly, which is rich in mesenchymal stem cells and other healing factors like cytokines, collagens, proteins and peptides. Similar to amnion, these healers help with tissue development, but the addition of stem cells means your body is equipped with cells that can quickly transform into much-needed tissue to replace those affected by injury or illness.
Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, formulated from your blood, contains natural healing components that promote cellular regeneration, tissue repair and healing.
Your blood contains clotting factors and other proteins essential to your immune responses and healing. Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated formulation of your blood with a significantly higher proportion of platelets. If you have a musculoskeletal disorder, such as arthritis or joint pain, that site doesn't benefit from consistent blood flow and, therefore, the delivery of essential nutrients and blood components. That also means healing is slow since cells like platelets can't get to the scene to facilitate repairs.
How does platelet-rich plasma work? A small sample of blood is drawn and spun in a medical device to separate the platelets and plasma. The result is a powerful serum, rich in platelets, that when injected directly into the part of your body that needs repair, stimulates healing to help you return to a healthy state.
Regenerative medicine, including regenerative cell therapy or injections using stem cells, platelet-rich plasma therapy and amniotic fluid therapy, is effective in treating the following:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- Damaged or degraded cartilage
- Torn ligaments
- Arthritis (PRP only)
- Plantar fasciitis
- Disc problems
- Bone issues
- And more!
