Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine includes several types of therapies that harness your body’s ability to heal and recover from injuries and pain-causing conditions. Some of the most effective types of regenerative medicine solutions are described below.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves gathering a small sample of your blood and processing it in a specialized centrifuge machine. This process separates powerful platelets and growth factors that stimulate tissue production. Once your PRP is processed — it takes just about 10 minutes — your physician injects it into damaged areas.

Amniotic injections

The amniotic fluid that surrounds a growing fetus during pregnancy is rich in stem cells. By injecting donor amniotic fluid into joints or injured tissues, the stem cells trigger new tissue development and help decrease inflammation.

Stem cell injections

Stem cell injections can be derived from donors or harvested from your own body. When they’re injected, stem cells turn into the cells that surround them, which is beneficial for regenerating and repairing tissues, and ultimately resolving pain.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a solution for stabilizing your hormone levels. It’s a beneficial solution for resolving pain and inflammation if you have fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, thyroid disorders, or other conditions that may be causing widespread discomfort.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

Regenerative medicine therapies have little-to-no side effects, so they’re ideal for safely treating just about any injury or pain-causing condition. Regenerative medicine might be right for you if you have:

  • Arthritis
  • Fractures
  • Nerve damage
  • Unexplained joint pain
  • Tendon or ligament tears or ruptures

When you come into Arlington Pain & Therapy for your initial evaluation, your dedicated pain medicine specialist evaluates your condition and lets you know which type of regenerative medicine is best for your needs.

How long does it take for regenerative medicine to work?

Because regenerative medicine involves stimulating new tissue growth — or stabilizing your hormones — it takes time for you to experience benefits. Rest assured though, with each passing day, those growth factors, stem cells, or hormones are hard at work helping your body heal.

Depending on your specific condition and course of regenerative medicine treatment, you can experience an improvement in as little as two to four weeks, with continuing relief each passing day thereafter.

It can take about three months or so for you to experience all of the benefits of regenerative medicine from Arlington Pain & Therapy. But over time, you should feel a dramatic reduction in pain and might be able to stop taking your pain medications entirely.
