Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative medicine is another option for our patient population. This therapy is used to regenerate, repair, and repair tissues to help reduce pain and improve functionality. This therapy can be targeted to treat damaged joints including knees, shoulders, hips, wrists, and elbows. In addition, regenerative medicine can be used to treat muscular strains, plantar fasciitis, as well as spinal pathology such as herniated disks, facet arthritis, and sacra-iliac joint dysfunction.

The theory behind regenerative medicine is to use either your own autologous cells or outside cells to repair damaged tissue. The cells can be either platelet rich plasma (PRP) or stem cells, or a combination of both. These procedures are often options for patients who are trying to avoid surgery, have side effects from cortisone, or have tried other treatment options with minimal relief. The procedures done to obtain the cells or platelet rich plasma are outpatient safe procedures in the office setting. Depending on the relief, patients can repeat the procedures as needed, and hopefully resume full functionality with pain relief after the procedure.

Please call our office for a free consultation to discuss your specific regenerative treatment options.
