What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is an effective way to promote new tissue growth when normal healing processes aren’t enough. Its effects can reduce and, in some cases, eliminate chronic pain in joints and soft tissues. Your body has specialized cells that contain growth factors. These growth factors are essential in triggering the generation of new tissue, and your body floods any injured areas with growth factors when you hurt yourself.
Most often, your body heals itself with few, if any, lasting effects. However, some types of injury can’t or won’t heal completely following your body’s first round of healing.
Regenerative medicine uses cells taken from your body or donated for the purpose. We inject concentrated solutions of these cells back into your body at the site of your pain. When they reach the target area, the cells trigger your body to start a new cycle of healing and gives the process a boost. As a result, tissues treated with regenerative therapies heal more completely.
