Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a form of alternative, minimally invasive treatment for chronic muscle and joint pain and inflammation. Regenerative medicine products use mesenchymal stem cells from healthy, full-term infants who are prescreened for the process. Once the mesenchymal stem cells are harvested, sterilized, and processed, they can be used for injections into injured or painful joints and muscles.

Regenerative medicine products help your body to heal naturally by using fundamental cellular building blocks to repair and replace damaged tissues. This can decrease your pain levels while improving the function of your joints and muscles.

What conditions can regenerative medicine help?

Regenerative medicine can be used to support healing for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Chronic joint pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Arthritis

While regenerative medicine isn’t a cure for these issues, it can help stimulate your body’s natural healing response to relieve pain and inflammation.

How does regenerative medicine work?

When regenerative medicine products are injected into an injured muscle or joint, the mesenchymal stem cells scan the surrounding tissues to identify what types of tissues need to be repaired, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. The mesenchymal stem cells then differentiate into these types of cells and grow to replace the damaged tissues.

Mesenchymal stem cells also have natural anti-inflammatory properties that reduce inflammation and swelling associated with chronic and acute injuries. This helps to relieve pain and allow your body to focus on regenerating damaged tissues, rather than fighting off inflammation.

Since regenerative medicine works on a cellular level, it can take several weeks or months to notice a difference in your pain levels. The team may recommend multiple treatments depending on the size of the treatment area or severity of damage to the injured area.

Am I a candidate for regenerative medicine?

The Complete Health Medical Center team recommends regenerative medicine for healthy patients who want an alternative to surgery or other invasive procedures for their pain. The team performs a thorough examination, including X-rays or an MRI if needed, to determine your diagnosis and treatment options.
