Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine refers to medical procedures that stimulate the regrowth of damaged or diseased tissue. Regenerative medicine at Elite Physical Medicine uses naturally occurring cells and specialized fluids to help your body heal itself. These injection procedures offer a safe, effective, nonsurgical option for orthopedic injuries and chronic pain.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

The medical team at Elite Physical Medicine uses regenerative medicine to help you heal from a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Wrist and ankle pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament tears
  • Osteoarthritis

Because regenerative medicine stimulates your body’s natural healing process, pain relief and healing happen gradually over time. Many patients experience some relief 2-4 weeks after their treatment. Symptoms continue to improve for several more weeks.

Some patients require only one regenerative medicine treatment. Others need a series of injections for the best possible relief of pain. In some cases, regenerative medicine results in complete recovery and the permanent elimination of pain.

What are my regenerative medicine treatment options?

Depending on the cause of your pain and other individual factors, the experts at Elite Physical Medicine might recommend:

PRP therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses growth factors from the platelets in your own blood to promote tissue healing. PRP therapy begins with a blood draw from your arm. Your provider spins this sample in a centrifuge, separating your platelets from other blood components.

Next, your provider injects this PRP serum into the site of your damaged muscle or connective tissue. Right away, the growth factors begin to promote the growth of new cells to replace the damaged ones.

Amniotic allograft and cord tissue/matrix

An amniotic allograft is a type of regenerative therapy that uses voluntarily donated placenta cells harvested from live births. Your provider might also use umbilical cord tissue, which has components containing the building blocks of healthy tissue and anti-inflammatory proteins.

When injected into an injured ligament, tendon, or muscle, an amniotic graft or cord tissue causes cells to repair themselves and build healthy new cells.

Regenerative medicine can relieve your pain and restore mobility and function without medication or invasive procedures. To learn more about this cutting-edge treatment, or to schedule a consultation for regenerative therapy, call Elite Physical Medicine today or request an appointment online.
