What is regenerative medicine?
Sometimes surgery isn’t an option for pain relief, or perhaps, previous treatments haven’t worked. In such instances, Regenerative Medicine techniques may be a solution.
This comprehensive alternative treatment is beneficial for chronic pain sufferers of knee pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, and so much more.
Regenerative medicine involves using Human Cellular Tissue Products (HCTPs) to help your body to heal itself. Apple Medical Centers provides patients with HCTPs to help stimulate the regenerating healing process. These HCTPs are made up of hyaluronic acid, growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, exosomes and cytokines, which are all powerful factors that help regenerate your body’s tissues.
Once you’re injected with the HCTPs, the growth factors can start triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks, cells may grow and divide, forming new tissues. This may heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through a surgical procedure.
Which areas can be treated with regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine with amniotic allograft treatments is beneficial for healing many types of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis.
The injections help heal your: • Knees • Shoulders • Hips • Elbows • Ankles • Wrists
Do the regenerative medicine injections hurt?
They are injections after all, so you may feel a bit of stinging, but only for a few seconds. Most patients describe a temporary burning sensation, although it doesn’t last long. If you’re sensitive to pain or are getting the injections in a sensitive area, your practitioner can apply a topical numbing cream. This type of cream decreases some of the stinging sensation from the injection and minimizes your discomfort
How long does regenerative medicine take to work?
Because you are kickstarting your body into making new tissues, it does take some time for your regenerative medicine treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two months, while others experience improvement within a few weeks. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.
