What is Regenerative Therapy?
Regenerative therapy has been recognized by the medical industry worldwide as the biggest breakthrough in natural healing. Your own cells have regenerative power; when they are injected into an area that needs healing, your body’s natural response is to accelerate the process and repair the damage. These are non-surgical procedures involving the extraction and injection of your own naturally occurring cells. Regenerative therapies typically concentrate your bone marrow cells or cells from your own fat (adipose) tissue.

What is Regenerative Medicine?
The use of your own body’s tissue to help heal injury and disease is known as regenerative medicine. Bio-cellular grafts are made from your own cells, which are typically harvested from bone marrow or fat tissue. Depending on your age, health, and condition, you may be a candidate for stem cell therapy, PRP therapy, prolotherapy, or a combination of these therapies.
Am I a Candidate for Regenerative Medicine?
Although not all patients are candidates for regenerative medicine, we offer initial consultations, including a discussion of our success rates, to help determine whether a patient will have the desired outcome.
If you have active cancer, an infection, or a history of lymphoma, this therapy may not be suitable for you. If you have any of these conditions or you are on certain blood thinning medications, we will need a note from your oncologist or cardiologist before proceeding.
What Does Regenerative Medicine Treat?
With years of experience and expertise in this field, our providers enjoy a high success rate in healing bone, muscle, joint, soft tissue, and nerve injuries with regenerative procedures. Our therapies meet the needs of patients who still have pain after traditional treatments like physical therapy, rest, NSAIDs, pain management, and/or surgery have failed.
Regenerative therapy offers the following benefits:
Increased healing potential
Quicker recovery time
Decreased time away from sport or daily activities
Most individuals can return to their normal activities after 72 hours. The length of time it takes to return to sports is dependent on the patient and site of injury, but averages 2 weeks.
