Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine includes a variety of innovative therapies that aim to rebuild, or regenerate, cells, tissues, and organs to restore normal function. When tissues like your tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or bone become damaged, it may cause debilitating symptoms like pain, stiffness, and restricted range of motion. 

The team at 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center uses regenerative medicine to help your body repair these tissues naturally. They specialize in advanced regenerative techniques, such as:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP uses components of your own blood to promote tissue repair. This concentrated solution contains 5-10 times more healing growth factors than normal blood. When injected into an injury site, PRP stimulates blood flow and helps build healthy new cells.

Stem cells

Another type of regenerative medicine uses mesenchymal stem cells, which occur naturally in your bone marrow and fat (adipose). These cells are special because they can turn into (differentiate into) many different types of cells, including cartilage and muscle. 

The team at 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center may use donor stem cells that were carefully processed in a lab instead of harvesting cells from your body.

Why would I need regenerative medicine?

You may be a good candidate for regenerative medicine if you have an illness or injury that causes damage to your musculoskeletal tissues and doesn’t improve with conservative treatments like physical therapy. The team at 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center uses regenerative medicine to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendinitis and tendon tears
  • Ligament tears
  • Cartilage tears

Regenerative medicine can also help you recover faster from a surgical procedure, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in your knee. 

What should I expect from a regenerative medicine treatment?

First, your 180 Health Medical & Wellness Center provider reviews your medical history and performs a physical exam to make sure regenerative medicine is right for you. Then, they develop an individualized treatment plan that may include stem cell injections, PRP therapy, or a combination of both. 

PRP and stem cell injections promote natural healing, so it may take a few weeks or months for you to notice an improvement. Regenerative medicine results include reduced pain and inflammation and improved function in the injured area.

The team may combine regenerative medicine with other treatments, such as:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Massage therapy
  • Functional exercise
