What are Regenerative Medicine Treatments Used to Treat?

Patient ResourcesContact Us

You’ve probably heard of regenerative medicine treatments, but may not know much about their applications. At A Family Chiropractic, we ensure our patients are informed about emerging treatment forms. We’re committed to passing on our knowledge of new treatment options to them, allowing us to provide the best options for each individual. Regenerative medicine is a key part of this growing field, particularly focusing on treatments like regenerative medicine therapy.

As a component of regenerative medicine, these treatments are utilized to repair damaged or inflamed tissue. Introducing these treatments into the affected areas is typically done through injections. You might think this process seems too simple or straightforward. Or you might wonder, “Is there more to regenerative medicine treatments?” The answer is both yes and no. While the application of these treatments is straightforward and quick, the process of how they facilitate healing is a marvel of medical science.

How Do Regenerative Medicine Treatments Work?

The regenerative treatments used by A Family Chiropractic are sourced from donated umbilical cords obtained during cesarean sections. The umbilical cords contain Wharton’s Jelly, a gelatinous substance that protects the cord’s blood vessels, rich in mesenchymal cells. These cells are vital due to their freshness and lack of DNA damage from viruses or oxidation. Mesenchymal cells are capable of differentiating into multiple cell types in the body, making them a rapid and effective regenerative resource.

What Conditions Can Regenerative Medicine Therapy Help?

Regenerative medicine therapy is particularly beneficial for knee injuries and degenerative diseases, including:

  • Trauma to the knee.
  • Vitamin D deficiency resulting in cartilage loss.
  • Genetic knee conditions.
  • Arthritic knees.
  • Meniscus tears.

Bone-on-bone friction, a result of cartilage degeneration, can be exceedingly painful and impact your lifestyle. Cartilage serves as a cushion between bones. Bone-on-bone conditions not only cause pain but can lead to stress fractures. Regenerative medicine therapy may prevent this painful condition.

Joint and Muscle Problems

Besides knee issues, regenerative medicine treatments are also effective for:

  • Inflamed Muscles and Joints
  • MCL and ACL Tears
  • Achilles Tendon Tears
  • Wrist Sprains and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Tendonitis and Bursitis
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Plantar Fasciitis

These conditions can be excruciating and, in some instances, debilitating. Regenerative medicine therapy offers a healing hope for these conditions.

Back Problems

Individuals suffering from various back issues may find relief with regenerative medicine treatments. This method is versatile and effective for:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Herniated and Bulging Discs
  • Facet Joint Arthritis and Injury
  • Interspinous Ligaments
  • Annular Tears

Application of Regenerative Medicine Treatments

Treatments are administered directly to the inflamed or injured area at A Family Chiropractic’s state-of-the-art outpatient facility. Our experienced staff ensures you fully understand the procedure beforehand, providing a clean and comfortable atmosphere.

After preparing and sterilizing the affected area, the regenerative treatments are injected, initiating regeneration and strengthening of the body’s tissues.

Effectiveness and Timeline for Regenerative Medicine Treatments

Several factors influence the effectiveness of regenerative medicine treatments, including age, type of injury or condition, physical fitness, and overall health. While individual results vary, treatment effectiveness typically ranges from two to six months, with many patients experiencing relief within a few weeks.

Safety and Advantages of Regenerative Medicine Therapy

Regenerative medicine therapy complies with FDA regulations, offering a safe alternative with minimal risk. Compared to surgical options, these injections are non-invasive, leave no scars, and carry almost no infection risk. They can be performed quickly on an outpatient basis, unlike the potential hospital stay surgery might require. Additionally, if initial treatments are not successful, further injections can be administered without the delay required between surgeries.
