What is Regenerative Medicine?

Written By Rockwall Elite Healthcare on March 25, 2021

rsz regentherapyMillions of individuals suffer from painful conditions that involve chronic inflammation and scar tissues that simply won’t heal on their own. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of surgery, then you may want to inquire about regenerative medicine. 

What Exactly is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a treatment approach that utilizes a patient’s own cells to help heal tissue damage, as well as naturally treat symptoms of a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Spinal injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Burns
  • Arthritis 
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Deteriorating cartilage

Different Types of Regenerative Medicine

There are several types of regenerative medicines available, including:

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments: Doctors collect blood from the patient, and platelet-rich plasma is separated from the rest of the material. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the affected area.
  • Amniotic Tissue Treatment: Therapeutic injections are created from placental matter from the womb that is expelled after birth. The placental matter is often discarded after the birthing process, but the amniotic tissue collected from it is used to help treat a variety of conditions.

These methods are proven to help patients find real relief from inflammation and pain and have even been shown to help restore deteriorating cartilage and heal damaged tissues. 

What are the Benefits of Regenerative Medicine? 

The benefits of regenerative medicine can and will vary depending on the conditions being treated. However, research has shown that regenerative medicine:

Enhances the Body’s Natural Healing Process

Utilizing the body’s own cells encourages your immune system’s natural healing abilities. For instance, platelet-rich plasma treatments contain essential proteins that help speed up the healing process because they promote cell growth. 

Faster Recovery Times 

The raw cells and proteins collected for the use of regenerative medicine help to speed up the recovery times from:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and pulled muscles
  • Torn muscles and tendons

Increases Overall Functionality

As your body begins to heal itself, you’ll start to notice less pain and inflammation. This also helps to increase your overall functionality since scar tissues and other injuries no longer restrict your body.
