Benefits of Regenerative Medicine
Most people have bodies that heal quickly after an illness or accident. It is true to say that your body takes care of its wounds. With this ability, coupled with regenerative medicine, you boost your body’s healing power as the therapy concentrates the power on the place where it is needed. Therefore, the doctor injects stem cells or PRP directly onto the damaged or injured area.
Whether the patient is suffering from an acute injury or a degenerative disease like arthritis, this procedure speeds up the healing process. These two therapies, stem cell or PRP, can be used simultaneously or separately. When used, they can do the following:
- Regrow the cartilage
- Repair the bones or regrow the fractured area
- Repair the degenerating spinal discs
- Repair and regrow the tendons and the ligaments
You get healthier tissues and bones
It is known that traditional medicine is only reactive, meaning that they only repair the damaged area. Unlike them, regenerative medicine also improves the health of the bones or the tissues that it treats. Regenerative medicine involves suffusing your skin, bones, and tendons with fresh new cells or highly concentrated platelets. Thus your body parts become stronger and healthier. This is a sure sign that the therapy can improve your musculoskeletal system’s overall health.
Natural remedy against inflammation and pain
Most people with chronic pain are usually using long term anti-inflammatory drugs. If not, then they may be on other medications that may come with various side-effects. However, this is not the case with regenerative therapies. The PRP and the stem cell therapy have no side effects when administered to you. All you will experience is slight discomfort during injection. These therapies introduce absolutely nothing foreign to your body. These therapies can even subdue some inflammation that may be arising when the body decides to attack its tissues erroneously. Your medical practitioner may recommend this procedure to treat some chronic and autoimmune pain conditions like:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Joint pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lower back pain
- Sports injuries
Lower risk for future pains
This procedure heals, and apart from that, it strengthened your body parts that were once injured. Therefore, there is no risk of feeling pain in the area or injuring that part again.
By now, you or your loved one may be ready for increased mobility and relief from pain through regenerative medicine. Schedule a consultation with your LifeWell M.D specialist to learn more about regenerative medicine.
