What is Regenerative Medicine? Regenerative medicine refers to a range of natural treatments that repair and rejuvenate damaged or degraded tissue to help relieve pain, improve mobility, and boost overall function. The treatments we use at our Kansas medical clinic include injections containing regenerative cells, PRP therapy, and exosome therapy. If you’re tired of treatments that don’t work and want to feel better, move better, and function better in your daily life, get in touch with us today for a free consultation to get started.
Natural Pain Relief with Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative cell therapy uses healing mesenchymal cells that are obtained from the Wharton’s jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue. These youthful cells contain a range of healing compounds such as cytokines, growth factors, proteins, extracellular matrix, collagens and peptides that all help to regenerate injured tissue.
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a regenerative medicine treatment made from a sample of your own blood. This sample is spun in a centrifuge, which creates a rich, golden solution. The solution that is created contains highly concentrated platelets that have potent healing qualities, which are then injected into your area of need to speed up your body’s natural healing process.
Exosomes are small protein sacs found in bodily fluids that are effective at communicating to other cells, instructing them to congregate at the site of an injury to facilitate healing. Exosome therapy can speed the healing process for a variety of injuries and conditions to reduce your pain.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
The cells we collect for regenerative cell therapy are acquired from donated umbilical cord tissue. Consenting mothers donate the tissue after being carefully prescreened, and neither the mother nor the baby are harmed throughout the process. The healing cells are injected into injured areas for tissue regeneration and subsequent pain relief. The fact that regenerative cells are so young means they are quite powerful and potent, and will quickly get to work to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. They also are too young to have an immune system, so there is little to no chance of rejection.
Regenerative cell therapy targets the underlying cause of your pain to provide a real, long-lasting solution. We can help you with issues that include:
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Neck pain
- Wrist pain
- Ankle pain
- Foot pain
- And more
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, contains a range of vital healing qualities that can help with many different ailments and conditions. Since the treatment is made using your own blood, there is never a risk of rejection. It also has no side effects and very little downtime. Our doctors here at Regain Functional Medicine have treated patients with a number of painful conditions using PRP therapy, with great results.
All of these regenerative treatments are natural and target the root cause of your painful condition, which is the key to their success. Surgery is highly invasive, often includes a lengthy recovery time, and can leave a patient open to infection. Using pain to mask symptoms is only a temporary solution at best. When the underlying condition is addressed and solved, the pain has no option but to disappear.
Are you tired of pain limiting what you can do in life? Our all-natural treatments can make a big difference in how you feel, move, and function.
