Healing through Regenerative Medicine
If you have chronic pain or recently suffered a traumatic injury, you may dread the thought of surgery. However, thanks to important medical advances, you may never have to worry about surgery again. Regenerative medicine has helped many patients to avoid knee replacements, hip replacements, and surgeries for athletic injuries.
What is the Main Use of Regenerative Medicine?
The main purpose of these state-of-the-art therapies is to activate your body’s own healing mechanisms. This provides benefits that are safe and long-lasting. Instead of treating pain with drugs, for example, regenerative medicine aims to stimulate growth in affected areas.
Athletes can get treatment for rotator cuff tears and ACL tears without requiring invasive surgeries. Individuals who have arthritis can find true relief by regenerating worn tissues instead of constantly relying on strong pain medications.
How Does This Treatment Therapy Work?
The first step in regenerative medicine is to harvest the cells or growth factors required for treatment. At National Stem Cell Clinic, we obtain these incredible natural cells from within the patient’s body, usually from blood proteins, bone marrow, or fatty tissue. This way, you don’t have to worry about tissue rejection or ethical dilemmas from embryonic stem cells.
Next, we apply the cells to the part of the body that needs to repair itself. This activates cells at the site of treatment, helping skin tissue to heal more quickly, regenerating cartilage, and restoring tendons.
