In the past, treatments for knee pain, shoulder pain and other types of joint injuries included drugs and often ended in a failed surgery. That’s because pain medications merely masked the symptoms caused by joint problems and surgery always involved risks of post-surgical complications like scarring. Utilizing the latest techniques for regenerative medicine, P.R.I.M.E. Health Centers provide life-changing corrective procedures that combine stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to boost your body’s natural ability to heal itself. In fact, our multidisciplinary approach allows us to address joint problems using ultrasound guided precision to treat painful conditions like arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis as well as boost healing for cartilage and ligament damage.
Hands-On Physical Rehabilitation
Our in-house rehabilitation also includes chiropractic care and physiotherapy to relieve joint pain by manipulating spinal alignment to restore its proper shape. Physical rehabilitation methods are combined with our regenerative medicine to produce new pain relief protocols that focus on the natural healing of damaged joints and tissues. While traditional orthopedic surgeries, like knee replacements, can produce consistent results for some patients, many active adults and athletes are opting for a more technologically advanced treatment plan that includes minimally invasive platelet rich plasma shots and stem cell therapies. Since blood flow is crucial to your body’s own repair mechanisms, PRP injections can produce outstanding results inside and around injured joints.
Encouraging the Natural Healing Process
To ensure we are on track to produce the best possible outcomes, our approach using regenerative medicine starts with a thorough evaluation including digital imaging of the injured areas that are causing your pain. Once you have been qualified as a candidate, we will individualize a treatment protocol specifically for your needs. Our initial approach is to prepare damaged tissue for regenerative medicine by eliminating as much of the inflammation as possible. By combining cellular therapies, we can enhance your body’s natural healing processes exactly in the areas where it is most needed. The National Institutes of Health defines regenerative medicine as “the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects.” To learn more about the future of rehabilitative medicine, call 636-735-3577 for a Same Day Appointment.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function loss due to age, disease, damage or congenital effects. A cell-based therapy, regenerative medicine involves the injection of stem or progenitor cells, the induction of generation by biologically active molecules, and transplantation of in vitro-grown organs and tissues.
