Regenerative Medicine Treatments

Regenerative Medicine, which involves using stem cell injections for injuries, involves using stem cells to promote healing and tissue regeneration in injured areas of the body. This offers a promising alternative for treating various musculoskeletal conditions and accelerating recovery.

Palm Beach Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine offers cutting-edge stem cell injections as a part of their comprehensive regenerative treatments aimed at harnessing the body’s healing mechanisms to repair and restore damaged tissues. These injections treat various conditions, from chronic joint pain to sports injuries, providing patients with a non-surgical option for significant improvement in function and pain reduction.

Stem Cell Therapy

The regenerative process begins by injecting the stem cells into the patient’s injured muscle, tendon, or joint to start the healing processes of injured tissues. Proteins, growth factors, and other healing mediators are released by injected stem cells, which stimulate your stem cells to grow and divide, resulting in healing of tissue, suppression of inflammation, and suppression of immune responses associated with pain.

Stem cells have been shown clinically and scientifically to support soft tissue repair, reduce inflammation, and minimize scar formation. PRP is often used in combination with stem cell therapy to provide the body with the materials essential to maximize and support the body’s natural regenerative healing processes to injured and damaged tissues.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Wellington

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patient’s blood to heal damaged tendons or cartilage. PRP relieves pain and jump-starts the healing process by directly providing healing mediators to damaged tissue.

Patients have enjoyed great success when receiving this therapy in place of surgery, steroid injections, or injections of hyaluronic acid. This amazing therapy involves carefully extracting concentrated platelets and other regenerative factors from your blood. These cells and regenerative factors are then re-suspended in a small volume of your blood plasma and then applied to the treatment site.

Wellington PRP Stem Cell Injections

PRP Injection Procedure

The PRP injection procedure is performed in the doctor’s office. Blood is drawn, and platelet-rich plasma is prepared using a special centrifuge to provide the highest concentration and quality. 

The injection site is aseptically cleaned and then locally anesthetized for safety and comfort. Using precise ultrasound guidance, the physician skillfully introduces the PRP into the affected area using a small-gauge needle to ensure accuracy.

The physician will then carefully provide detailed post-procedure instructions, including avoiding NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), emphasizing rest, and limiting specific activity.

What To Expect After Treatment

Once the PRP is injected, a collection of concentrated growth factors and other active healing mediators migrate to the injured tissues, causing a healing cascade and active tissue repair. This process continues, enhancing tissue regeneration for several weeks after just one application and promoting sustained healing and recovery.

Patients generally have some mild post-procedure discomfort for a few days and then begin to see improvement in pain and mobility after 4 to 6 weeks, with continued healing and improvement for up to 6 months. Most patients are satisfied with one treatment, but it is expected to have multiple treatments for more significant defects or complicated injuries. Many patients can avoid surgery when using these treatment options.
