Regenerative Medicine Q&A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a non-pharmaceutical type of medicine that uses stem cells and growth factors, which are natural to the human body. The treatments at Peak Performance & Prevention (P3) use amniotic stem cells, which come from the amniotic fluid surrounding a human fetus during pregnancy. 

At P3, the expert clinicians provide several regenerative treatments to ease your pain, improve mobility, and benefit your overall well-being. They teach you about the process of obtaining the stem cells and their use in your treatment. 

Stem cells aid in healing because they’re undifferentiated cells, meaning they have the potential to develop into various cell types and fulfill any need. They can develop into cartilage and other cell types to rebuild damaged areas. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a regenerative substance full of growth factors that comes from your blood, is also available in injectable form for joint pain. 

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an appealing option to many individuals who are experiencing musculoskeletal pain, especially around the joints. It might appeal to you over other treatments for the same conditions because it:

  • Is nonsurgical
  • Is natural
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Requires little preparation on your part
  • Doesn’t use pharmaceuticals
  • Can help you avoid future surgeries

The P3 experts evaluate you to make sure you can safely take part in regenerative medicine with stem cells. If any reasons leave you not suited for this approach, your clinician can guide you to other treatment options that can also result in healing. 

What can regenerative medicine treat?

P3 primarily uses regenerative medicine to treat joint pain, inflammation, and immobility. Whether your joint pain comes from an overuse injury, an acute injury, or arthritis, the experts at P3 can tailor your treatment plan to target one or more joints that are giving you trouble. 

The stem cell injections can reduce inflammation and help repair damaged cartilage or tendon tissue. 

PRP therapy can also treat joint pain. Further, it’s available for sexual performance, SkinPen® microneedling, and hair regrowth. 

What is Prolozone therapy, and how does it function as regenerative medicine?

Prolozone therapy is a minimally invasive regenerative medicine procedure that encourages your body’s natural healing process. Specifically, it uses a combination of nutrients and ozone (O3) injections to relieve pain that is affecting your joints and soft tissues. 

At P3, your expert provider uses Prolozone therapy to treat various types of musculoskeletal issues, including shoulder pain from rotator cuff injuries, arthritic joints, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, sprains, and strains. 

Some people experience benefits after just one or two treatments, but others need six or more. The team at P3 administers Prolozone therapy injections every 2-6 weeks until your symptoms improve and you’re pain-free. 

Amniotic stem cell therapy, Prolozone therapy, and other forms of regenerative medicine are top-tier choices for joint pain treatment. To schedule a regenerative medicine consultation, call Peak Performance & Prevention or request an appointment online today.
