How Regenerative Medicine Can Help You Feel Better Today Than You Did Yesterday

If you’re like millions of Americans, you struggle with at least one chronic health condition. Rather than continue to suffer, consider a new type of treatment.

At High Point Medical Clinic, Dr. Linda Morgan-Evans is on the cutting edge of new developments. She focuses on regenerative medicine, a way to cure "untreatable" injuries and diseases. You don't have to live in pain anymore. Regenerative medicine can finally help you heal.

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an exciting new field within medicine. It uses advanced technology to help the body heal itself. To put it simply, regenerative medicine repairs, regrows, and replaces damaged parts of the body. Whether that’s cells, tissues, or organs.

The medical field is already using organ donation and stem cells from donors. But, regenerative medicine doctors are integrating something new. Your body's stem cells.

How does regenerative medicine work now?

One of the most beneficial uses of regenerative medicine is treating chronic pain with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Doctors take your own plasma and process it so the blood is rich in platelets. Then, they inject this processed plasma back into your bloodstream. Which improves your pain.

Platelet-rich plasma reduces inflammation, increases healing time, and speeds up repair. Meaning, the tissue or tissues, that cause your recurrent pain won't be as damaged as they once were.

Other uses of regenerative medicine

One of the most exciting aspects of regenerative medicine is its use of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy heals orthopedic conditions. Such as back pain, joint pain, or torn tendons. This type of therapy uses aspirates of your own bone marrow, which is usually taken from a spot near your hip.

Regenerative medicine is different than traditional stem cell therapy. That's because of the type of cells used. Regenerative medicine uses mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, and tissues within your body. Mesenchymal stem cells are a precursor to traditional stem cells. And are more effective at differentiating between tissues, bones, and cartilage.

The same stem cells can relieve worn cartilage, such as in osteoarthritis. Regenerative medicine can use your own body to heal itself from arthritis pain. Because the treatment comes from cells in your own body, it's more tolerable. And less likely to cause harm.
