Regenerative medicine refers to a group of advanced treatments used to replace or regenerate human cells. Traditionally, musculoskeletal problems like chronic pain, back pain, and joint pain that didn’t respond to conservative therapies required surgery. Regenerative medicine makes minimally invasive intervention possible. It uses growth factors, including stem cells and platelets, to ease pain, relieve inflammation, and encourage your body’s natural healing process.
Regenerative medicine is a relatively new branch of care. Even so, there’s evidence to suggest it’s capable of treating a wide range of problems, all while lowering the risk of infection, lengthy recovery periods, and disability.
Regenerative medicine includes a variety of different treatments. Several of the most common include:
Platelet-rich plasma is a solution that contains high concentrations of blood plasma. PRP is the most common type of regenerative medicine and involves Dr. Jain injecting a solution of PRP into a damaged or injured area of tissue. Once PRP enters your body, it eases inflammation and pain, while encouraging the growth of healthier cells and tissue.
Stem cells act as the foundation for all of the cells in your body. They’re pluripotent, meaning they can transform into any type of cell needed. At Pinnacle Pain Management Specialists, Dr. Jain uses mesenchymal stem cells. Stem cells, like PRP, encourage your body’s natural healing process, easing pain and inflammation, while promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue.
Bone marrow aspirate stem cell concentrate (BMAC) is a type of regenerative medicine that combines bone marrow liquid with stem cells. This type of treatment is particularly beneficial for people who have a bone or joint disorder, such as arthritis and osteoporosis.
To determine the type of regenerative medicine you will most benefit from, schedule an appointment at Pinnacle Pain Management Specialists. Following a review of your medical history, a discussion of your symptoms, and a thorough physical exam, Dr. Jain can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your individual needs.
