Regenerative Medicine for Back Pain
New developments in regenerative medicine for back pain have allowed patients to live life like they haven’t been able to for years as a result of these treatments.
What is regenerative medicine? It is the science of assisting the amazing capability our bodies have to heal themselves in order to replace or repair those tissues and cells that have been damaged or degraded over the years. Regenerative cell therapy includes treatments utilizing regenerative cells and platelet-rich plasma, otherwise known as PRP.
Both of these highly effective methods work to introduce incredibly powerful cells back into your body, that will help trigger tissue recovery or regeneration.
Your body already contains cells, as well as the platelets and growth factors that make up PRP. It’s about getting these potent cells to the areas of need so they can breathe new life into the back, joints, or other painful areas.
The unfortunate thing about cells is that as we grow older, these cells are less and less potent. The younger someone is, the more effective their cells are. As an example, how quickly do children recover from an injury as compared to an adult?
While there are methods of stem cell therapy that remove stem cells from your own body and reintroduce them into the troubled area, we believe the most effective way to use regenerative cells is through those obtained from Wharton’s jelly – a substance found in the umbilical cord. These cells have been donated by healthy mothers after they’ve given birth, from tissue that would have otherwise been disposed of. It is an ethical way to obtain the immense healing benefits of when we were younger.
