What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative Medicine uses Human Cellular Tissue Products (HCTPs). These are made up of hyaluronic acid, growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, and cytokines, which all help regenerate your body’s tissues. Because they are undifferentiated, these cells can develop into cartilage, ligament, tendon, or bone cells when they regenerate alongside the cells targeted for treatment.
What can be treated with regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine injections are beneficial to relieve pain and improve the range of motion in your joints by treating the damaged connective tissue. Our medical team may recommend regenerative medicine to promote healing and prevent pain from:
- Any joint pain
It may take 3-8 weeks to see optimal results from regenerative medicine therapy.
What are the benefits of regenerative medicine therapy?
Successful regenerative medicine injections may offer long-term pain reduction, increased range of motion, and permanent repair of damaged connective tissues.
Regenerative Medicine therapy injections are perfectly safe, and there is little to no downside to trying this therapy, especially before resorting to surgery or heavy medications. This minimally invasive treatment allows you to be able to return to the activities you love with a reduced risk of side effects, infection, or increased damage.
Can I get more than one joint injected at a time?
Absolutely. It is very common for people to get both knees or both shoulders done at one time if they are having issues with both joints. This is something that you can discuss more with your doctor during your initial visits to determine what will be best in your case.
