If you’ve been living with chronic pain from an injury or musculoskeletal disorder, cutting-edge regenerative medicine treatments may be a non-surgical alternative. This branch of medicine uses your body’s restorative powers to help you heal safely, without surgery or drugs. We offer regenerative therapies, including injections containing regenerative cellular tissue, mesenchymal stem cells, amniotic fluid therapy, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections at our medical facility in Tulsa, OK.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a breakthrough field of medicine that uses your body’s natural self-healing properties to treat diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. Whenever your body recognizes muscle, tendon, ligament, cartilage, or tissue damage of any kind, it attempts to heal the injury through its repair mechanisms.
Factors such as your age, general health, and the severity of the damage affect your body’s ability to heal itself, leading to acute or chronic pain, inflammation, swelling, and reduced mobility.
Regenerative medicine attempts to give your body the bioactive tools needed to repair and regenerate damaged tissue and accelerate healing naturally. That’s where stem cells, amnion, and platelet-rich plasma injections come in.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy offered at our clinic includes injections containing growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells. Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells are young, healthy, potent cells that haven’t aged. These are undifferentiated cells with the potential for incredible tissue regeneration. Amniotic fluid, rich in growth factors, proteins, and other healing cells, is also used in some forms of regenerative cell therapy.
We source regenerative cellular tissue from reputable tissue banks. Healthy mothers who have been prescreened donate birth tissue during scheduled, standard cesarean sections. This birth tissue, rich in hundreds of growth factors and healing proteins, would have been otherwise discarded.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma contains a mixture of proteins and growth factors that trigger healing when injected into the site of an injury or area of damage. PRP injections are prepared using your blood, which has been medically processed to concentrate platelets to promote faster healing.
PRP therapy is a viable all-natural pain relief treatment to help you avoid complicated surgical procedures that can lead to adverse effects.
PRP injections are prepared and administered in-office without requiring lengthy downtime. Because your blood is being used, there is a low risk of developing allergic reactions or of your body rejecting the treatment. PRP works without the use of habit-forming pain medications by targeting the source of your medical disorder, rather than providing temporary relief of your symptoms.
Regenerative medicine has been successfully used in the treatment of a range of pain conditions, illnesses, and injuries, including:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Osteoarthritis and arthritic joint pain (PRP only)
- Bulging or degenerative discs in the spine
- Sports injuries
- Occupational injuries
- And more!
