Regenerative Medicine Q & A

Active Health Center

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine harnesses your body’s own innate ability to heal itself from an injury or illness by creating living, healthy tissue to replace degenerated or diseased tissue. The field of regenerative medicine seeks to rejuvenate your body so it can repair itself as naturally as possible without dependency on prescription painkillers. The doctors at Active Health Center have had great success with stem cell therapy for adults with chronic joint and lower back pain, osteoarthritis, shoulder pain, and peripheral neuropathy.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that turns unspecialized cells into specialized cells. This is possible because stem cells have the unique ability to develop into many different types of cells, such as brain cells, cartilage cells, or even new heart tissue. Stem cells can live through periods of inactivity within your body until you need them to repair tissue after an injury, heal a diseased area of tissue, or to regrow an organ.

Stem cell therapy is essentially the next generation of organ transplants, only there won’t necessarily be a need for an organ donor. Stem cells are making it possible to grow a new, healthy organ to replace a diseased one.

What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?

Stem cells can help your body heal if you have degenerative joint conditions, or to help recover from an injury. Dormant stem cells follow blood platelets to the area of your body in need of repair so they can become the specific cells you need to promote healing. For example, if you injure a tendon or a ligament in your knee, or the soft tissue surrounding your shoulder, stem cells become part of the new tendon, ligament, or soft tissue so your body is able to heal.

With stem cell therapy, the doctors at Active Health Center inject a high concentration of stem cells into the injured or diseased area to promote your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Many adults get pain relief and increased mobility from stiff joints or lower back problems and nerve conditions through an individualized treatment plan at Active Health Center that includes stem cell therapy.
