What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine available at SOAR Spine and Orthopedics uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) sourced from your blood or stem cells that stimulate new cell growth in your body without invasive procedures.

Regenerative medicine is available as an injection. While you might need several treatments to achieve the best results, regenerative medicine can help you avoid the need for addictive pain medicine or surgery.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

The benefits you can expect when choosing regenerative medicine at SOAR Spine and Orthopedics include:

  • Faster healing
  • Improved strength
  • Better flexibility
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • Less ongoing (chronic) pain
  • Better quality of life

After regenerative medicine injections, minimal downtime is needed, and the treatment yields highly effective long-lasting results.

Is generative medicine right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for regenerative medicine at SOAR Spine and Orthopedics, your provider discusses your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and medication. They also complete a physical exam and could order a urinalysis, bloodwork, joint-fluid testing, and diagnostic imaging (an MRI, a CT scan, an ultrasound, or X-rays) before tailoring your treatment plan.

What happens during regenerative medicine treatment?

Regenerative medicine treatment at SOAR Spine and Orthopedics consists of injections into painful, injured, or degenerating tissues. During PRP injections, your provider takes a sample of your blood, purifies it using a centrifuge, and injects it back into your body. They can obtain stem cell injections from other areas of your body or from a lab. 

Before completing regenerative medicine injections, your specialist numbs the treatment area to enhance your comfort.

What should I expect after my treatment?

After regenerative medicine treatments, you can expect temporary redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection sites. Over the next few days and weeks, treated tissues generate new cells, and you’ll experience faster healing, less pain, and improved musculoskeletal function.

The SOAR Spine and Orthopedics team lets you know when to schedule your next treatment to ensure long-lasting comfort.

SOAR Spine and Orthopedics also offers physical therapy and individualized exercise instruction. They offer yoga, Pilates, tai chi, massage, the Feldenkrais Method, and other holistic techniques that enhance natural healing and reduce your risk of re-injury.

Your provider tailors each treatment to your needs and may combine several treatments to ensure an exceptional outcome.
