Regenerative Medicine is a medical field that is rapidly evolving and used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including chronic pain issues throughout the different muscles and joints in the body. Most forms of medicine are intended to manage pain and keep it under control. Regenerative Medicine is designed to strengthen tendons and repair tissue damage, working to minimize or even eliminate your pain. Regenerative Medicine and Orthobiologics work in conjunction with your body’s naturally produced stem cells to accelerate your healing process, boosting its native function. Depending on the root of your pain and the type of disease or condition you are working to treat, Regenerative Medicine can have many benefits.
Improved Motion & Functionality
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body, but production may slow down as you age. Supplementing your cells with Regenerative Medicine will encourage collagen production to continue, which will help make your tendons stronger and increase your mobility and the range of motion you have. The more you are able to move, the easier you will be able to resume everyday activity.
Faster Healing & Recovery
Regenerative Medicine contains substances that provide your healing cells with a boost, helping them get to work faster than they normally would have to rebuild impaired areas in your muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Since Regenerative Medicine works directly with your body’s own cells, it will be able to directly work on healing the root cause of your pain, rather than providing temporary relief. Regenerative Medicine, commonly referred to as Stem Cell and PRP therapy, also speed up the growth process within restoration, reducing and alleviating your pain in less time than traditional medicines.
Reduced Risk of Rejection & Future Injuries
Your body may reject some forms of medication, viewing it as a threat against your healthy cells. Because Regenerative Medicine is made from substances already found in your body, there is no risk of rejection, cutting out any recovery time potentially lost due to ill effects of medications. Since collagen production is encouraged by Regenerative Medicine, the tendons that make up your joints will become stronger and at the same time making it more difficult to cause damage in the future. Along with conditioning exercises prescribed by a physical therapist, you will be able to build up your muscle and learn to move in a way that better protects you against the risk of future injuries such as broken bones, torn muscles, and worn joints.
