What You Don’t Know About Regenerative Medicine


Regenerative medicine is one of the most thrilling areas of medical advancement and research in recent years. Genesis Regenerative Sports and Aesthetic Medicine offers treatment to people suffering from joint pain and need relief from sports injuries. Regenerative medicine treatments include:

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy supports the repair response of dysfunctional, diseased, or injured tissues with the help of stem cells or their byproducts. It uses cells as an alternative to donor organs that are limited in supply.

Stem cells are grown in the lab. The cells are employed to specialize in specific cell types, such as nerve cells, blood cells, or heart muscle cells. The specialized cells are then implanted in a person. If a person has heart disease, the cells are injected into the heart muscle. The transplanted cells repair the defective heart muscle.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is obtained by removing blood and rotating it in a centrifuge to detach a thick layer of platelets from red blood cells. PRP is a plasma containing a higher concentration of platelets than what is found in the blood. PRP therapy exposes a diseased joint or soft tissue damage to a highly concentrated platelet solution. When the solution enters the body, it eases inflammation, promotes circulation, and triggers new cell and tissue production.

In serious cases, such as cartilage damage and degenerative arthritis, it is suggested to combine stem cell therapy with PRP for more healing benefits.

Shock Wave Therapy

Shock wave therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic regenerative medicine that uses high-energy waves to treat numerous musculoskeletal disorders. Shock waves work by emitting acoustic waves that have energy that spreads through tissues. They generate extracellular responses, creating beneficial effects such as cell proliferation, pain relief, and protein biosynthesis.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a medical treatment using focused light. Light from a laser is tuned to specific wavelengths. Lasers allow surgeons to operate on high accuracy levels, focusing on a tiny area, damaging little of the surrounding tissue. Regenerative medicine prefers to use laser therapy and shock wave therapy together for maximum results.

Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

Accelerated healing. Regenerative medicine boosts healing powers in the body by concentrating them and targeting them where they are needed most. Stem cells or PRP is injected directly into the injured area. Whether you suffer from a degenerative illness or have suffered an acute injury, PRP and stem cells speed up the healing process. PRP and stem cells can repair degenerated spinal discs, regrow tendons and ligaments, regrow cartilage, and regrow and repair fractured bones.

Reduce pain and inflammation naturally. Regenerative medicine only introduces what is already naturally present in the body.

Reduced risk of future injuries and rejection. The body can reject other medication types, but regenerative medicine is not dismissed because it’s made from substances already in the body.

Regenerative medicine is effective for every organ and tissue within the body.
