Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a branch of medicine that combines principles of tissue engineering and cellular biology to encourage your body’s tissues to heal after an injury. Regenerative medicine often addresses:

  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Pain in your wrists, hands, or ankles

Regenerative medicine incorporates platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and mesenchymal stem cell injections to support tissue healing and speed up your natural healing process. Regenerative medicine products contain hyaluronic acid, growth factors, exosomes, and cytokines that research shows may increase cellular turnover, which may aid in the growth of healthy tissue.

How does regenerative medicine work?

When your provider at Elite Regenerative Medical injects regenerative medicine products into an injured tissue or joint, they may promote blood flow to the area. With this increase in blood flow and the introduction of regenerative products from your injection, your injured cells gain access to nutrients and hydration necessary for tissue growth and healing.

In injured areas, your body often produces too many inflammatory chemicals as a response to the injury, which in turn causes more pain. Some regenerative medicine products contain anti-inflammatory chemicals, which may decrease pain and reduce swelling for a more effective option.

Since regenerative medicine works on a cellular level, it can take several weeks to see results after a single injection. Your provider may recommend multiple injections during the same visit if the treatment area is large or multiple visits to continue the healing process over several months.

Am I a candidate for regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine procedures are generally considered safe, though Elite Regenerative Medical may not recommend them if you have an infection in the area or a bleeding disorder. Some regenerative medicine procedures can occur before or after surgery to support tissue healing, if desired.

Regenerative medicine can complement other therapies, like rehabilitation or exercise-based treatments, to relieve pain as well. If you want to learn how regenerative medicine can support your current recovery plan, visit Elite Regenerative Medical for a consultation.

What should I expect when getting a regenerative medicine procedure?

Before the procedure, your provider discusses your medical history and symptoms to understand your condition. After a thorough physical exam, they determine your diagnosis and treatment options.

If you and your provider decide that regenerative medicine is the right choice, they inject regenerative medicine products into the treatment area, which takes 5-10 minutes. You can return to normal activities immediately afterward.
