Preliminary studies indicate that regenerative medicine may be beneficial to patients with chronic pain. Innovative Medical Center offers regenerative medicine services to patients with pain in the shoulder, back, neck, knee, or other locations. This service is available to patients in Fresno, California. Patients interested in regenerative medicine should contact Innovative Medical Center for an appointment.
An undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and from which certain other kinds of cell arise by differentiation. Having the ability to self-renew, can, therefore, help repair damaged tissue.
The body’s regenerative cells are responsible for stimulating the healing process and regenerating damaged tissues. These cells are capable of turning into the specific types of cells the body needs to promote tissue repair. For example, regenerative medicine therapy can produce tendon, ligament, cartilage, and bone tissue. Unfortunately, when tissues are aged or damaged, they can no longer produce healing cells as effectively as they once did.
Regenerative Medicine works by injecting cells directly into the tissue that needs treatment. Once in place, these cells will produce chemicals that signal a reduction in inflammation and encourage cell repair.

Studies in humans have shown that regenerative medicine can produce healing and tissue regeneration. In some studies, reported success rates are as high as 70-90%. Most patients who undergo regenerative medicine treatments will experience relief from pain and improvement in function approximately 6-8 weeks after treatment.
Studies have indicated that regenerative medicine therapy is generally safe and pose very little risk to the patient.
Not every patient will be a good candidate for regenerative medicine therapy. Patients who are interested in treatments with these types of cells should discuss the issue with one of the doctors at Innovative Medical Center. The doctor will be able to explain the possible benefits of regenerative medicine, as well as any other treatment options that may be appropriate.
