Regenerative medicine has been gaining popularity since many professional athletes in the US have shared their success stories. When you suffer a soft tissue injury, like a partially torn tendon or ligament, or when you have a wound that isn’t healing properly, regenerative medicine can help. The doctor will inject platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or bone marrow concentrate (BMC) to stimulate healing at the site of injury. The injection is made of your own blood cells or bone marrow. These procedures are not yet approved by the FDA, but we have seen amazing results in the patients we’ve treated.

Techniques our Chiropractors can provide include:

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Injection)

PRP Therapy Content: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary procedure that uses components of the body’s own blood cells to stimulate the natural healing process in certain orthopedic conditions. The body’s first response to any soft tissue injury (ligaments and tendons) is to deliver platelet cells. Filled with healing and growth factors, the platelets jump starts the repair process with the help of stem cells. The platelets are separated from the rest of the blood cells and put through a process called centrifugation, which increases the platelets’ concentration. These platelets are then mixed with the remaining blood cells, as PRP therapy speeds up the body’s healing process, by delivering a higher concentration of platelets through an injection. This quick procedure provides effective pain relief, eliminating the need for surgery and prolonged recovery. Many orthopedic conditions can be treated with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, including chronic pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. If you have pain, limited mobility, swelling, or sports injuries, chances are PRP therapy can benefit you, and is showing promising results, treating these common conditions: 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Plantar faciitis
  • ACL tear
  • Tennis elbow
  • Ankle sprain
  • Tendonitis
  • Ligament sprain

Stem Cell Injection Therapy

Since 1981, stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the reparative response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells. Researchers prepare the stem cells in a lab beforehand, and are manipulated to specialize into specific types of cells, such as heart muscle cells, blood cells or nerve cells. While Stem cell therapy requires no invasive surgery, these stem cells called placental-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are prepared beforehand, and injected directly into the area of pain or injury into your joint, muscle, ligament, or tendon.Depending on the severity of your problem, a local anesthetic might be given to reduce pain during the procedure. This procedure’s objective is simply to relieve pain, while the new stem cells stimulate your body to repair itself and heal faster, by generating healthy tissue. Stem cell therapy has recently had a major breakthrough within the medical field, particularly in the field of Orthopedics, due to the potential of these stem cells ability to cure arthritis pain, and other chronic or acute pain from other orthopedic injuries.
