Regenerative cell injections work with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Unlike treatments that simply address the symptoms, regenerative cell therapy actually promotes repair of the body, restoring degenerated tissue.
The human body is composed of more than 200 cell types and each of these cells in the body is designated to perform a particular function. For example, the liver cells ensure your liver is functioning properly. There is another type of cell in the body, called a regenerative cell, that is not assigned a specific function. Regenerative cells have the unique ability to turn into specialized cells and tissues and can replicate or produce even more regenerative cells.
When the regenerative cells are introduced into the injured joint or body, they can become tissue cells, bone cells, or other kinds of cells needed to repair the damage and inflammation. This ability to become whatever cells are necessary in the affected area is what makes regenerative cells extraordinary. Introducing a significant number of regenerative cells into the patient’s body will help heal injuries at an accelerated pace.
How are regenerative cells collected?
Our Regenerative Cell Treatment is a revolutionary breakthrough treatment option for people suffering from inflammation, reduced mobility, sports injuries, tissue and ligament damage, or chronic pain. Regenerative Cell Therapy is an injectable regenerative tissue matrix solution, that often times leaves the patient feeling relief after only ONE treatment. This cutting edge treatment takes the best components from all the current non-invasive treatment options and puts them into one.
Is regenerative cell therapy safe?
Our Regenerative Cell Therapy is an extremely safe treatment option. We are committed to the highest standards of patient safety, and adheres to stringent FDA regulations.
Is more than one treatment needed?
Not every person is the same. Obviously that possibility exists and that’s why we take our patients through our advanced assessment so we can carefully determine if you are one of those special cases. It is important to understand that once a joint regenerates, there would be no need for further treatment unless a new injury occurred or over-time, that joint degenerated again. Many patients are experiencing major relief from our Regenerative Therapy after only ONE treatment!
What determines the outcome of my regenerative cell therapy?
Various factors will determine the outcome of your Regenerative Cell Therapy treatment, such as the extent of damage, degeneration, and the location being treated. Most people respond well to this therapy option and experience relief from pain in just a short period of time. For instance, this therapy has been known provide full relief to patients after only one treatment.
Is there anything else I can do to increase the effectiveness of my therapy?
Our treatment plans are comprehensive. Not only will we provide you with the most cutting-edge treatment options, but we will also assist you through rehabilitation. Following the custom program created for your specific needs will thoroughly increase the effectiveness.
How much downtime should I expect after regenerative cell therapy?
Typically, there is no little to no downtime from cellular therapy.
How long does the repair process take?
Generally, the repair process begins immediately and the good news is that it can continue to repair for up to eight additional months from the date of the initial procedure.
How often does the procedure work?
Regenerative Cell Therapy has amazing results on a wide range of conditions. Most people generally feel significant, if not complete relief from this non-surgical procedure. In a recent study from a regenerative tissue manufacturer, they found that in a group of over 60 participants the average pain scale went from an 8 to a 0 in just 5 weeks for all the participants!
Can the procedure fail?
Like any other procedure there is no 100% guarantee. In certain cases, it is possible that you may need additional treatments based on the severity of your condition.
If the regenerative cell therapy does not work can I still have surgery?
Yes. There is nothing about these procedures that would preclude you from other treatment options, including traditional surgery.
Neck & Back Pain
Regenerative Medicine For Cervical Pain
The bones of the neck are made up of several cervical vertebrae. Between each vertebrae sits a cartilage disc that acts as a cushion, allowing the neck bones to move smoothly without friction. When cartilage starts to deteriorate or becomes damaged, cervical neck pain and stiffness can occur. Cervical neck pain from an injury, inflammation, or disc degeneration can become chronic and increasingly difficult to treat.
Regenerative medicine has revolutionized treatment options for those suffering from chronic neck pain. Regenerative Medicine uses allograft material to target the painful areas, help recharge the immune system, and greatly reduce inflammation. This allows the body to heal itself naturally and quickly.
Regenerative Medicine for Cervical Arthritis
Cervical arthritis is chronic inflammation of the tendons, ligaments, and soft tissues surrounding the vertebrae of the neck. Between each vertebrae sit discs of cartilage that provide support for the moving joints in the neck, and keep the bones from rubbing against each other. When this cartilage dehydrates or becomes damaged, signs of inflammation and arthritis can develop.
Regenerative Cell Therapy can reduce the inflammation that causes arthritic pain. By using allograft tissue containing stem cells with a high concentration of immune cells and healing factors, this procedure helps the body naturally repair the damaged tissue and cartilage between each vertebrae in the neck. With our same-day, in-office procedures, we can help you start feeling better fast.
Regenerative Medicine For Cervical DJD
Regenerative medicine has revolutionized treatment options for those suffering from chronic neck pain. Regenerative Cell Therapy uses regenerative cells to target the painful areas, help recharge the immune system, and greatly reduce inflammation. This allows the body to heal itself naturally and quickly. Many patients have been able to avoid the risks of surgery and medication with our non-invasive, in-office procedures.
Regenerative Cell Therapy is a revolutionary solution to heal cervical joint degeneration, and a safe alternative to medications, steroid injections, and surgery. We use a high concentration of regenerative cells to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and trigger an immune response to heal damaged tissues. While aging and inflammation can slow down the body’s natural healing process, our regenerative medicine techniques aim to jumpstart this system and target specific areas of the body. These non-invasive procedures can be done in a same-day, in-office visit.
Causes of Neuropathy
The most common cause of neuropathy, by far, is diabetes. Here is why:
The nerves rely on tiny blood vessels to bring them highly oxygenated blood. All cells in our body, including nerves, need oxygen to stay healthy and stay alive. Without oxygen our nerves die. Diabetes is known to cause damage to blood vessels, with the smallest vessels being affected first. Damaged blood vessels result in a lack of blood supply. This is known as ischemia. The majority of people with diabetes have, or will develop neuropathy.
Chemotherapy is another common cause of neuropathy. Here is why:
Chemotherapy is often needed by patients battling cancer. It is necessary to kill cancer cells. Unfortunately, the chemotherapy is also toxic to healthy cells. As a result, very often nerves are damaged by the chemotherapy. Sometimes the neuropathy caused by chemotherapy is self-limiting and the nerve can heal on its own over time. But, all too often the neuropathy caused by chemotherapy lingers and causes continued agony for the patient.
Neuropathy Treatment At Our Practice
The first step in developing an effective treatment plan for neuropathy is identifying the type of neuropathy you have.
After obtaining your personal and family health history, we get many details from you about your current neuropathy symptoms. Then an examination will be performed. These items give us a lot of information about your condition. If needed, additional testing may also be ordered to further clarify your condition. Some examples of additional tests may include lab testing, NCV/EMG test (a measure of nerve and muscle function), evaluation of your blood vessels, or possibly an MRI.
Once our providers have the above information we will assemble a treatment plan specifically for you. For example, if we have identified that the nerves in your feet and legs are damaged we focus treatment on the injured area of the nerve. If we identify a problem with your balance then we will address that with treatment. Similarly, if we identify an injured disc in your lower back, then we will focus our treatment on the injured disc.
Unfortunately, many patients suffering from neuropathy may have several different sources of nerve damage. For example, a diabetic patient may have nerve damage in their feet AND a herniated disc in their lower back causing nerve compression. The key to treating these more complicated situations is proper evaluation to identify ALL sources and then focusing treatment on each problem, i.e. treating both the nerves and the disc in this example.
This may bring up a concern for those people who have been told they have idiopathic neuropathy. Remember, idiopathic neuropathy means ‘you have nerve damage and we don’t know why’. Even if no one has been able to figure out exactly why you have nerve damage, we are still most likely able to figure out WHERE the nerve is damaged. We can then focus our treatment on the appropriate area. Fortunately, with our treatment methods we have been able to help many people with idiopathic neuropathy.
The most recent thoughts from experts on neuropathy are that most cases of neuropathy involve ischemia, which is a lack of blood supply. Blood flow is required for any of the organs and tissues of our body to heal. Whether it be the heart after a heart attack, a muscle after a muscle strain, or your skin after a cut, or scrape, the injured area needs blood supply to heal. Your nerves are no different. Blood flow brings in oxygen and nutrients necessary for healing an injured nerve and for normal everyday function. Because of this, much of our treatment is focused on improving blood flow to the area of nerve damage.
Based on our research, our experience, and more importantly, the improvement we have seen in our patients, we believe we have assembled the absolute best treatment program available to those suffering from neuropathy.
