Regenerative Medicine provides advanced, minimally-invasive techniques that promote healing and pain reduction, without surgery, for a variety of conditions. But can these treatments, including stem cell injections and platelet-rich plasma therapy, help with your chronic pain from an injury or disease? The answer is most likely yes. Here are some of the issues that can be helped by groundbreaking new Regenerative Medicine treatments.
What Conditions Can Regenerative Medicine Help?
Whether due to the natural difficulties of aging, injury, or disease, there are a myriad of ways in which you can experience chronic pain and restricted motion. It could be a torn knee meniscus from sliding into home during a baseball game, back pain from osteoarthritis in your spine, or golfer’s elbow from years of Saturdays on the links. Whatever your problem, it is likely that Regenerative Medicine therapies will be able to help.
Regenerative Medicine treatments are minimally invasive, meaning there is no surgery involved and no need for an incision. As a result, you won’t need to visit a hospital, even for a single day. You will also enjoy a very brief recovery time of a day or so, versus months with surgery. Furthermore, these treatments use your own blood, not donor tissue, so there is little risk of rejection or infection.
Patients in New Jersey can benefit from two specific Regenerative Medicine therapies – stem cell injections and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. Both of these procedures make use of your own blood cells and are administered under sterile conditions. They both can also be used to treat a wide variety of problems.
What About Your Condition?
Here are just a few conditions that can be treated with PRP and/or stem cell injections:
Degenerative Disc Disease – This disorder occurs when the discs between the vertebrae of the spine begin to collapse. It is usually a natural part of the aging process. However, Regenerative Medicine treatments like regenerative amniotic allograft cells injections and PRP therapy can help stop the process and promote disc healing.
Knee Meniscus Tear – A meniscus is a portion of cartilage in your knee that acts as a cushion between the bones, absorbing shock and pressure. Since cartilage isn’t as hard as bone, it’s not too difficult to tear. Surgery is usually undertaken to repair severe meniscus tears, but Regenerative Medicine provides non-invasive alternatives. Stem cell injections and platelet-rich plasma treatments can help the meniscus heal and regenerate without operative procedures.
Osteoarthritis of the Spine – Osteoarthritis appears when the cartilage, a soft tissue that cushions the joints, begins to wear away. While injury can accelerate the process, it is mainly a result of age. Regenerative amniotic allograft cells and PRP treatments can help regenerate this lost cartilage, reducing your neck and back pain and allowing you to more easily flex and extend your spine.
Plantar Fasciitis – This is a disease of the connective tissue in the heel and sole of the foot. Plantar fasciitis can make walking or even just prolonged standing incredibly painful. This disease can also cause you to become inactive, as walking and running may be too excruciating. PRP treatments can ease the inflammation and give you back your active lifestyle without the need for surgery.
Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow – These conditions, also known respectively as lateral epicondylitis and medial epicondylitis, are not acute injuries. Rather, they result from overuse of the elbow joint. Of course, you don’t have to be a tennis player or golfer to suffer from these injuries, and the pain and inflammation can interfere with many aspects of your daily life. Fortunately, PRP treatments and regenerative amniotic allograft cells injections can accelerate healing and get patients in New Jersey back to full activity without surgery.
