Such procedures include stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma. Find out if you are the right candidate for any of these treatments by scheduling a consultation with Clifton regenerative medicine specialists today.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine specializes in the regeneration and natural healing of damaged body tissues. Some regenerative treatment options include stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma. These procedures help in the growth of new cells, repairing the damaged tissues, and completely relieving the patient of pain.
Regenerative medicine is a perfect alternative to surgery. It can help manage chronic pain, multiple forms of injured tissues, and sports or work-related injuries. Regenerative medicine not only enhances healing but also addresses overall body wellness.
How Effective Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment?
During Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, the physicians at Garden State Pain Control can derive platelets from the patient’s blood and use it to help with pain relief and healing. The doctors take a small amount of your blood and use advanced medical technology (the centrifuge machine) to process it.
The Centrifuge machine spins the blood at high speeds, dividing the blood into two separate components: the highly-rich platelet plasma and red blood cells. The highly-concentrated platelets have a potent growth factor that stimulates healing and offers pain relief.
A patient will realize complete pain relief after a platelet-rich plasma treatment after around 4-6 weeks. Nonetheless, different patients have different recovery times. It can be influenced by factors such as the severity of damaged tissue, and whether or not a patient is seeking other treatments to accelerate the healing.
How Effective Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Often referred to as the backbone cells in the human body, stem cells can be any cell type in an individual’s body. Thus, they are highly effective in regenerative medicine when a patient requires particular new cells to aid in the healing process. Although there are multiple places you can get these stem cells, the most convenient places are from the body’s bone marrow and adipose tissue.
During the harvesting of the stem cells, the physicians at Garden State Pain Control put the patients under local anesthesia to enhance comfort. The providers make abdomen incisions to harvest the stem cells, and an ultrasound scan helps to make the incisions precise. After the stem cells are isolated using the centrifuge machine, the providers inject them into the affected area. The expected, long-lasting results from stem cell therapy treatment last about 3-4weeks, or even months on some occasions.
To sum up, regenerative medicine is the perfect pain management alternative. The providers at Garden State Pain Control incorporate cutting-edge technology to enhance treatment efficiency. Learn more about their practice by requesting a consultation online or through mobile.
