The Benefits of Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative Medicine is a burgeoning medical field that treats a numerous diseases and conditions, including chronic pain. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Growth Factors are Regenerative Medicine Therapies that are presently being used to treat chronic pain in numerous joints such as the hip, knee, ankle, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. While traditional medicine (i.e., pain prescription and over-the-counter medication) concentrates on managing chronic pain, Regenerative Medicine concentrates on repairing tissues and strengthening tendons in the joints to diminish and alleviate pain.
The Advantages of Regenerative Medicine
Enhanced healing and reduced pain. Regenerative Medicine concentrates on tackling the source of pain, rather than merely managing symptoms. PRP Therapy accomplishes this by delivering Growth Factors to the injured area to aid the healing of tissues. This enables patients to heal and experience less pain than with Traditional Medicine.
Improved functionality. Regenerative Medicine promotes collagen production in the body, which strengthens tendons and tissues. When the tendons and tissues on and surrounding the joints are strengthened, they increase the range of motion in joints, allowing you to move freely and complete everyday tasks freely again.
Quicker recovery. The Growth Factors used in Regenerative Medicine help stimulate the regenerative process in tissues and tendons, leading to quicker healing. This enables you to (safely) resume to your normal activities more quickly.
Decreased risk of future injuries and pain. Collagen tightens and strengthens the tendons in the joints, reducing the risk of future injuries and pain.
