If you experience a work- or sports-related injury, or you come down with an illness like the flu, your body goes to work trying to heal and defend. These processes are possible thanks to growth factors like platelets and stem cells.
Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge branch of health care that uses concentrated doses of growth factors to speed up your body’s natural healing process. Research is still in the early stages, but studies suggest that treatments with platelets, stem cells, and bone marrow aspirate can trigger the production of newer, healthier cells while easing pain and encouraging healthy circulation. In addition, regenerative medicine is minimally invasive. It’s administered via injection, so there aren’t any incisions, sutures, or stitches involved.
The team of caring providers at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers uses regenerative medicine to treat a wide range of issues, including:
They might also recommend regenerative medicine for post-surgical pain or to speed up your healing process following a sports-related injury.
The team at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers offers several types of regenerative medicine, including:
If you are interested in regenerative mesenchymal stem cell therapy, it is important to talk about what stem cells are. Mesenchymal Stem cells are essentially the body's raw materials that it uses to generate all other types of cells. Mesenchymal stem cells have not yet been divided into specific types of cells. Therefore, they have the potential to become just about any type of cell in the body.
Houston Spine and Regenerative Medicine offer a connective tissue matrix in the Woodlands and Houston, TX. We use the power of regenerative medicine and connective tissue implants to help reduce pain, swelling, and help damaged tissues recover naturally.
If you injure a bone, muscle, tendon, or ligament, your doctor might recommend orthobiologics. Orthobiologics use platelets, stem cells, or matrix material to encourage the production of newer, healthier cells. This encourages recovery while preventing the need for more invasive treatments like surgery.
Only a qualified medical professional, like those at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers, can determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine. Following a physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your symptoms, your provider develops a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
Because regenerative medicine uses products derived from your body, there’s little risk of infection or other complications. This makes the treatment safe for almost anyone.
