What is regenerative medicine used for?

Imagine lifelong chronic pain and injuries healing without the need for surgery or shorter recovery periods for patients who undergo surgery. Such is the promise of regenerative medicine. It’s a revolutionary way of treating patients by regenerating lost or damaged tissue. It is one of the most rapidly developing areas in pain management and treatment.

As regenerative medicine becomes widely available, you may be wondering how it could benefit you.

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a way to treat diseases and injuries using the body’s natural system and components to foster healing. Not only does regenerative medicine help patients delay or eliminate the need for surgery, it also helps patients heal quicker and more effectively following surgery and serious injuries. This is a versatile treatment that is effective in reducing pain symptoms and musculoskeletal issues by healing from the inside out. Regenerative medicine has been popular in sports medicine for quite some time because it helps athletes heal from injuries efficiently and effectively so they can return to their sports as quickly as possible.

Two of the most commonly used applications in regenerative medicine are platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapy. PRP therapy involves using a concentration of platelets harvested from a sample of your blood to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Stem cell therapy involves using stem cells from your bone marrow or fat tissue to regenerate much needed tissue and stimulate faster healing.

One of the best things about regenerative medicine is that its treatments are versatile and can be used to treat all types of musculoskeletal issues. Some of the orthopedic conditions that can be treated with regenerative medicine are:
