Regenerative Medicine involves repairing and regenerating the damage in the body. These new treatments utilize the body’s natural healing powers to relieve a wide range of physical problems related to tendon, ligament, muscle, and bone damage.
Leading orthopedic and sports medicine practices, such as OSPI in Arizona, offer various regenerative medicine treatments –
- Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Therapy (Your Own Bone Marrow)
- Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell Therapy
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy)
Stem cell and PRP therapy have been utilized in treating various areas of the body, including knees, hips, backs, and shoulders, that people have injured or that are affected by degenerative conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
OSPI has teamed up with R3 Stem Cell, the nation’s leading regenerative medicine company offering cutting edge technologies and research, to provide OSPI patients with state of the art options.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy involves harvesting stem cells from a human source, either the amniotic fluid or the person’s own bone marrow. Amniotic stem cells are either extracted from a willing donor’s amniotic fluid.
Once either of these fluids is harvested, the stem cells are isolated and injected into the affected area. This encourages the creation and strengthening of the affected tissue and also helps to reduce inflammation and pain.
PRP therapy involves deriving platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the person’s own blood. The PRP contains several growth and healing factors that aid healing in the damaged tissues.
Many orthopedic doctors are now utilizing stem cell and PRP therapy instead of highly invasive and risky joint replacement surgeries. Regenerative medicine treatments are relatively non-invasive, pose fewer risks and are less expensive, quick and efficient.
