Regenerative Medicine for Effective Pain Relief
For a product or tissue with living cells, regenerative medicine is a unique blend of biology, medicine and engineering to effectively reduce pain and promote healing. Also referred to as tissue regeneration and/or tissue engineering, the idea behind this multidisciplinary field of medicine is to stimulate the body’s natural healing capacities by delivering living tissues to damaged areas or chronic wounds. As the body’s ability to repair and rejuvenate is activated, pain from diseased tissues, injured cells and organs, broken bones and severe burns is relieved as healing and reconstruction begin.
Without question, the arena of regenerative medicine is an exciting, innovative approach that not only alleviates pain—it aims to fully restore a variety of conditions that were once debilitating.
Conservative Effective Treatment
Using leading-edge diagnostics and therapies, regenerative medicine encompasses conservative treatment alternatives that are non-surgical and minimally invasive. For a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as Osteoarthritis (OA), platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections and ReNu are naturally rich in regenerative properties and healing factors.
PRP injections involve taking a small sample of a patient’s blood. The sample is then placed into a centrifuge machine where blood components are separated. The blood plasma, rich in platelets, proteins and growth factors, is then reinjected into the area of damage or injury to initiate tissue repair and healing. In regard to osteoarthritis, PRP is injected directly into the damaged joint where it promotes pain relief, improves joint function and encourages cartilage repair.
An emerging treatment for osteoarthritis pain and various orthopedic conditions, ReNu is a groundbreaking single injection containing hyaluronic acid, cellular components and key extracellular matrix proteins. As a naturally bioactive amniotic suspension fluid, ReNu is safe and easily administered in an office setting. For those hoping to avoid potentially damaging steroid injections and/or surgery, and for individuals with degenerative conditions such as OA, ReNu is a revolutionary alternative with benefits up to one year.
