Regenerative Therapy Q&A

What is regenerative therapy?

Regenerative therapy is a ground-breaking area of medical science. It harnesses your body’s natural ability to create and repair cells to heal itself.

The team at the University Pain Medicine Center include regenerative therapies in treatment programs for a variety of painful injuries and degenerative conditions, including:


  • Arthritis
  • Muscle injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Tendon injuries
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Spinal disc problems
  • Whiplash and other accident-related injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Bone fractures


Your doctor might also recommend regenerative therapy to accelerate your recovery after surgery.

What are the available types of regenerative therapy? 

The team at the University Pain Medicine Center offers several types of regenerative therapies, including:

Stem cells

Stem cells are the building blocks of your body. They are uniquely able to turn into whatever type of cell your body needs while also multiplying to restore or repair your body. The team at the University Pain Medicine Center uses amniotic stem cells, which are collected from the umbilical cords of healthy full-term babies. They might also harvest stem cells from your body, usually from fat deposits or your bone marrow. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Your platelets contain the proteins and growth factors your body uses to create and repair cells. PRP is a serum made from your blood that includes 5-10 times more platelets than an average blood sample. When your doctor injects PRP into damaged tissue, it stimulates your healing response and floods the area with the nutrients your body needs. 

Exosomes

Exosomes promote cellular metabolism and regeneration. When combined with other regenerative therapies like stem cells or PRP, they can enhance your recovery and support rapid pain relief.

What happens during a regenerative treatment?

Regenerative therapies are usually injections. After your doctor provides an exam and consultation to assess your condition and determine if regenerative treatments are right for you, they schedule your procedure.

Depending on the specific therapy, your doctor might begin by drawing blood or harvesting a sample of stem cells from your body to create your treatment. 

Then, they prepare you for the injection by cleaning your skin and providing a local anesthetic. Your doctor might use X-rays to ensure they place the needle in the correct location. 

After your injection, you might have some tenderness, but this should go away within a day or two. Even with the accelerating effects of regenerative medicine, your body still needs time to repair itself.

You might notice an improvement in your symptoms in as little as two weeks, or your body may need more time to repair itself. Depending on your needs, your doctor might recommend a series of treatments to achieve the best results.
