Regenerative Medicine in Fort Wayne is provided by Northeast Joint Wellness
As a regenerative medicine practice, our goal is to help patients recover from an injury or illness as completely as possible. We can employ unique treatment options that may not be offered by other medical clinics. It is important for everyone to understand the basics of regenerative medicine, the treatments offered, and how this can help patients.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
One of the most rapidly growing fields in healthcare is regenerative medicine. This unique medical specialty combines multiple fields including tissue growth, molecular biology, and medicine to help patients regenerative injured or damaged tissues and body parts. In regenerative medicine, the goal is to restore the injured body part to its normal, healthy function.
This field has grown substantially over the past few decades and has helped countless people recover from injury. Instead of forming uncomfortable scars, regenerative medicine is a non-surgical approach that can help people avoid the formation of scar tissue. By avoiding scars, patients can enjoy a more complete recovery. Two of the most important treatments in the field of regenerative medicine are stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy.
The Goals of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is one of the treatment options offered by our practice. The research into stem cell therapy has led to rapid growth in its range of applications.
In stem cell therapy, undifferentiated cells (called stem cells) are placed into an injured area of the body to promote growth and healing. Because stem cells are young, they can divide and become almost any body tissue. In addition, the youth of stem cells means that they do not trigger a very powerful immune response. This makes it more likely that the patient’s body will accept the stem cells instead of rejecting them.
As stem cells divide, they can become whatever tissue the patient needs to recover. This means that instead of forming an uncomfortable scar, the patient forms new tissue. This leads to a more complete recovery.
An Overview of Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
Another treatment offered by our clinic is called platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). Another non-surgical treatment option, platelet-rich plasma has been used in the recovery process from a variety of injuries. This includes osteoarthritis, tendinitis, shoulder injuries, and some surgical procedures.
Platelets and plasma are two of the main components of blood. The platelets and plasma are extracted from the blood by a centrifuge. Then, they are injected into an injury site to assist with the regenerative process.
Because platelets and plasma play major roles in the natural recovery process following an injury, this concentrate can be injected directly into an injury site to further help with the recovery process. This contributes to the growth of healthy tissue and can avoid the formation of uncomfortable scars.
