Regenerative medicine is a substance that makes use of the power of your body to heal itself with natural growth factors and other elements like hyaluronic acid, mesenchymal stem cells, cytokines, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
At Revive Medical and Rehab, the professional medical staff administers regenerative medicine injections to patients who are suffering from conditions such as:
Research shows that regenerative medicine techniques may help tissues to heal better after injury and generate new cells to replace lost or damaged tissues.
Injections of regenerative medicine are most often used to target joints such as knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, ankles, and wrists.
Your medical professional gives regenerative medicine as an injection which goes to the precise point in your body where your pain originates.
The growth factors within the injection stimulate new cells to grow, which, over time, form stronger, healthier tissues that could help to ease the pain.
Regenerative medicine is a viable option for many patients who’ve tried other treatments without success, and are looking for an alternative to surgery.
The mechanism by which regenerative medicine could relieve pain relies on the body generating new tissues, which can take some time so you won’t feel an immediate change. You might start to feel the difference after about two weeks, although two months is more common.
Each patient’s response to regenerative medicine is different, so it’s impossible to predict how your body will respond.
While many patients report an improvement in their condition after a single injection, some patients need more than one.
If you aren’t feeling the benefit of your regenerative medicine injection after a couple of months, it’s worth going back to Revive Medical and Rehab for a further course of treatment.
Like most injections, you’ll feel the needle going in, and you may experience a stinging or burning sensation at first. If you’re particularly sensitive or the injection is in a tender area, you can apply an anesthetic cream to your skin before the injection to minimize any discomfort.
