STEM CELL AND PRP INJECTIONS - Heal the body from within
Regenerative medicine is the new way to treat chronic musculoskeletal injuries related to muscles, tendons, bones and cartilage and the pain dysfunction associated with conditions like tendinitis, arthritis, cartilage and joint injuries.
Here, the goal is to try to heal, regenerate, replace the injured or damaged tissue.
If nothing else, these procedures may help in limiting pain, improving function, postpone or avoid a major surgery. These procedures may limit or eliminate the associated morbidity, mortality, unknowns and costs associated with major surgeries. Finally, they limit further damage from day today use.
Rejuvenate: Boosting the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Replace: Using healthy cells, tissues, or organs from a living or deceased donor to replace damaged ones.
Regenerate: Involves tissues or organs, that will ultimately re grow
There are three interrelated concepts:
Rejuvenation: Rejuvenation means boosting the body's natural ability to heal itself. Though after a cut, one's skin heals within a few days, other tissues and organs don't repair themselves readily. Recently cells in the body once thought to be no longer able to divide, have been shown to possess some ability to self-heal under right conditions. Stem Cell and PRP injection create such conditions.
Replacement: Replacement involves using healthy cells, tissues, or organs from a living or deceased to replace damaged ones. Example: embryonic cells from amniotic fluid, cord blood or bone marrow.
Regeneration: Regeneration involves delivering specific types of cells or cell products to a damaged or diseased tissue or an organ, where they will ultimately re grow.
Regenerative medicine holds the promise of definitive, affordable process to heal the body from within.
Stem cells have the ability to develop into many different types of cells, such as skin cells, brain cells, lung cells and so on. Stem cells are a key component of regenerative medicine.
Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) — through a process called optimal scaffolding — PRP is one of the key component of regeneration when treating chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Think about them as the "sod and seed" both of them are needed to repair and regrow your damaged lawn while providing water and ideal climate.
