What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge approach to tissue repair. Whether you have tissue damage related to injury, trauma, disease, or even congenital issues, regenerative medicine techniques such as PRP therapy can help.

The regenerative medicine philosophy is simple: It’s best to treat the root cause of your symptoms, rather than just viewing the symptoms as the only issue. For example, the traditional medical approach might prescribe pain relievers for knee pain.

Instead of addressing the actual cause of the knee pain, however, the medication merely masks the pain for a little while. Regenerative medicine treats the underlying cause by repairing the tissue damage that caused your pain.

In this way, regenerative medicine offers lasting relief instead of a lifetime of symptom management.

What is PRP therapy?

In PRP therapy, your TruWell Health specialist injects concentrated platelets taken from your own blood. Platelets bring on the healing response when you’re injured or have tissue damage within tendons, ligaments, or other soft tissue.

With PRP therapy, you get up to 10 times the amount of platelets that normally occur around an injury site. This allows for much faster tissue repair.

PRP is often a popular treatment for chronic neck, back, and knee pain. Conditions like osteoarthritis, tendinitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, sprains, and strains all respond very well to PRP therapy.

Regenerative medicine can bring back your function and end your pain through natural injections instead of major surgery. Learn more by calling TruWell Health or clicking on the online appointment maker now.
