Regenerative Medicine is a style of healthcare treatment that focuses on repairing and replenishing any sort of diseased tissue. When cells are diseased, they can wreak havoc on your overall health. And instead of using traditional medicine that tries to treat the symptoms associated with damaged cells, regenerative medicine actually attempts to repair and replace the cells themselves.
Regenerative Therapy focuses on treating the underlying causes of your symptoms by allowing damaged cells to heal.
Regenerative Medicine is a proven science that helps people with a wide range of symptoms, conditions, and diseases.
Regenerative medicine seeks to replace tissue or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues, vs. the current clinical strategy that focuses primarily on treating the symptoms.
Depending on your health issue, our team may suggest using Regenerative Medicine treatments to stimulate proper holistic healing. This can be extremely valuable in your overall health. During your appointments, we’ll discuss if Regenerative Medicine make sense for your care.

Regenerative Medicine may be defined as the process of replacing or “regenerating” human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by replacing damaged tissue or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs. These therapies prompt the body to enact a self-healing response. These advancements in patient care across a wide range of medical specialties point to new solutions to expand and maintain optimal health and quality of life.
Regenerative Medicine goes beyond disease management to search for and discover therapies that support the body in repairing, regenerating and restoring itself to a state of well-being.
When we administer a regenerative therapy product like our vital human cell and tissue products (HCTP), we are putting back in, or supplementing, the things that naturally occurred in your body and aiding your body’s ability to heal itself. Our products are derived from umbilical cord tissue after a happy, healthy birth and are washed, tested, and frozen to use in injections that can help stimulate the healing process in joints, chronically inflamed muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone, and nerve. They are minimally manipulated in manufacturing to preserve the most important cytokines, proteins, growth factors and scaffolding properties; the functional factors involved in reconstruction, repair and protection of human tissue.
Ultrasound technology gives us the ability to pinpoint problem areas with incredible accuracy. Once the exact location is identified, we make a small injection and then allow your body’s own healing process to do the rest.
One type of regenerative therapy that can help people with musculoskeletal conditions is cartilage regeneration. This therapy is aimed at healing damaged cartilage. Cartilage does not heal well on its own because it does not contain blood vessels and doesn’t always have a constant blood supply. There are several techniques used for cartilage regeneration. According to research from Johns Hopkins Medicine, cartilage regeneration is ideal for active people under 55 years old.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is based on the hypothesis that the platelets and plasma found in the blood can heal and repair injuries. PRP treatments are usually used in sports medicine to repair tendon injuries. To make platelet-rich plasma, blood is drawn from the patient and then processed to create a concentrated solution that contains more platelets and plasma than regular blood. A centrifuge is often used to create this solution. PRP is either injected into the injured tendon or applied during surgery.
Prolotherapy is a type of regenerative therapy that treats injured joints and connective tissues. It is often used to treat arthritis, whiplash, and degenerative disc disease. It can be used on the back, neck, shoulders, hip, hands, and knees. In prolotherapy, a doctor injects a watery solution containing substances like saline and dextrose into the injured area. These injections usually contain a numbing agent like lidocaine as well.
The injection irritates the injury site, triggering the body’s healing response. As a result, the body will grow new connective fibers to repair the damaged tissue. This relieves the pain associated with the damaged connective tissue. Several treatments may be done to stimulate more new tissue growth.
Current estimates indicate that approximately one in three Americans could potentially benefit from regenerative medicine. If you’re dealing with a chronic disease, trauma, or congenital issue, book your appointment today so our team can consult on your condition and see if Regenerative Therapy is right for you.
