Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is one of the most exciting, revolutionary concepts in healthcare today. Regenerative medicine’s goal is to concentrate the human body’s own natural healing substances to accelerate healing and tissue remodeling. At Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group, the team uses regenerative medicine for:

  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Slipped or herniated vertebral discs
  • Sprains and strains
  • Hairline bone fractures
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto injuries
  • Neuropathies

Research suggests that regenerative medicine may help heal the source of your pain so you can live comfortably and actively without resorting to opioids or surgery.

What happens when I get PRP?

Platelet-rich-plasma therapy starts with a simple blood draw from your arm. Your licensed medical practitioner then takes your blood and spins it in a special, sterile centrifuge to separate the liquids from the solids. Another spin separates platelets (plate-shaped cell fragments) from blood cells and other solids.

Your platelets contain healing substances, including growth factors and fibrin, that help your body repair wounds and rebuild tissues. Your expert mixes the concentrated platelets back with a tiny bit of your plasma (the liquid part of your blood) to create the PRP serum.

When injected directly into the area of damage or pain, the PRP serum can give your body’s natural healing powers a boost. Studies show that it helps you rebuild strong, healthy tissue with new collagen and elastin, to improve the condition that originally gave you pain.

What happens when I get MSCs?

Mesenchymal stem cells are a type of pluripotent stem cell, which means that they don’t have any defining qualities of their own but can turn into other types of cells. The team at Lifestyle Rejuvenation Medical Group uses donated MSCs from umbilical cord tissue that was donated from a pre-screened, pre-approved, healthy, live birth. They never use embryonic stem cells.

Your medically licensed expert injects the MSCs directly to the point of injury to so they can become the type of cell that’s needed most. For instance, if you’re repairing a torn tendon, the MSCs could become tendon cells. If you’re repairing a hairline fracture, the MSCs could become bone cells.

Research suggests that once the MSCs rebuild your tissues, your pain may dissipate. You may start to notice a difference in your level of pain within weeks.
