Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine available at The Neuroscience and Spine Institute includes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and stem cells that increase your body’s ability to heal. 

PRP and stem cells are available as injections in areas of your body containing tissue damage. The injections stimulate new cell growth naturally, without the need for excessive pain medicine or invasive procedures.

What is regenerative medicine used for?

Some of the conditions regenerative medicine helps treat include:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Elbow discomfort
  • Ankle pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Tendinitis
  • Joint wear-and-tear
  • Tendon, ligament, and cartilage injuries
  • Other musculoskeletal injuries

Your pain specialist may recommend regenerative medicine in addition to or instead of surgery to speed up healing, improve musculoskeletal function, and ease the pain.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

The Neuroscience and Spine Institute providers find the root cause of your discomfort and injuries to determine which regenerative medicine treatment best matches your needs. They ask about your symptoms, current medication regimen, medical history, lifestyle, treatment preferences, and desired results. 

Your pain management specialist checks your vital signs, completes a physical exam, and may order blood, joint fluid, or nerve tests, X-rays, ultrasound, a CT scan, or an MRI to confirm a diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment plan.

What should I expect during regenerative medicine treatments?

During regenerative medicine treatments, you relax comfortably. Your provider might take a sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge before injecting it into painful or damaged tissues. They may use stem cells from another part of your body or donated stem cells from a lab for your regenerative medicine injections. 

Multiple injections spaced apart over time can help you achieve highly effective results. Your pain specialist lets you know when to schedule your next injections. Over time, treated cells regenerate, and you’ll notice faster healing and less discomfort.

In addition to regenerative medicine, you may make healthy lifestyle changes, undergo physical therapy, try home remedies, use a pain pump, receive other injections, or undergo surgery. Your personalized treatment plan depends on the type and severity of injury or disease you struggle with.
