Regenerative Medicine

While traditional medicine continues to advance, patients’ needs are evolving more quickly than ever before. The fast-paced nature of life in the 21st century can cause extensive wear and tear on the body. Damaged and degenerated tissues create several bothersome symptoms, most notably including chronic pain, inflammation and instability in the joints. Many physicians can manage these symptoms with medications, devices or physical medicine. These practices sometimes provide short-term relief, but the best approach in many cases is to regenerate the damaged tissues. This practice is simply known as Regenerative Medicine.

Regenerative Medicine is a fast-growing branch of medicine which involves replacing, repairing and/or regenerating human cells. The patient’s own bodily tissues are often used in these types of procedures, but those obtained from an outside source have proven quite effective as well. Introducing these cells into an afflicted area can drastically accelerate healing while reducing pain and restoring function to the structures. This occurs as the injected cells recruit other cells to the afflicted area, bringing with them a wealth of growth factors and proteins, which direct the healing response. 

Regenerative Medicine at Austin Preferred

There are many subcategories of Regenerative Medicine, but the two preeminent options are Stem Cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma uses the growth factors within the patient’s own blood to regenerate damaged tissues. The blood is drawn, separated to isolate the beneficial nutrients and injected into the site(s) of pain. This method has proven effective for virtually any type of soft-tissue injury to the muscles, tendons and ligaments. 

Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

Many patients have already experienced remarkable results from both therapies. The profound healing powers from these procedures has already helped many patients avoid surgery and/or reliance on prescription drugs. When compared to the cost and recovery time related to surgical procedures, Regenerative Medicine warrants serious consideration from eligible candidates.

Due to the cutting-edge nature of these procedures, health insurance does not yet cover Platelet Rich Plasma or Stem Cell therapy.
