Regenerative Medicine West Los Angeles, CA
While conventional methods of pain management involve treating the symptoms of an injury or disease, regenerative medicine focuses on the body’s natural ability to heal. In regard to musculoskeletal conditions, cellular therapies using stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP) facilitate the biological process of replacing, repairing and regenerating human cells and tissues. In doing so, individuals experience a significant reduction in pain, with improved function over time.
Remarkably, stem cell therapy and PRP treatments have effectively treated a number of musculoskeletal conditions such as tendonitis, rotator cuff tears, osteoarthritis, lower back pain, facet joint pain, hip pain and bursitis, sacroiliac dysfunction, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee cap instability, ACL injuries and Achilles dysfunction.
Stem Cell Therapy for Joint Pain Relief
Adult stem cells have the unique ability to differentiate or develop into different types of cells. As a result, when injected into an area of pain, they provide outstanding regenerative benefits in promoting the body’s natural healing capabilities, facilitating the recovery of damaged tissues, signaling new blood vessel formation and the regeneration of bone. For arthritis and sports-related injuries that have produced chronic pain and discomfort, stem cell therapy provides hope for joint conditions that were once beyond repair.
Typically extracted from a patient’s bone marrow or fat tissue, stem cells can be used alongside blood platelets for specific injuries and conditions.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatments
While the number of U.S. patients receiving palliative care is on the rise, there are growing demands from the aging population, which undoubtedly overwhelm the current healthcare system. For this reason, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments are a welcome alternative for those with chronic pain conditions.
PRP treatment begins by taking a small sample of patient’s blood. The sample is centrifuged for 15 minutes, separating the blood into layers. Using ultrasonic guidance, the layer of platelet-rich plasma is injected into a damaged area or tendon. The PRP attracts growth factors to the site of pain, where they work in large quantities to repair damage to tendon tissues, reduce pain and improve joint function.
