Stem Cell Therapy & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Regenerative medicine, or the use of biologics like stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma (PRP), is an exciting treatment option to treat a variety of chronic pain ailments. There is an increasing body of research demonstrating encouraging results with the use of stem cells and platelet rich plasma for repairing tendons, intervertebral disc, and osteoarthritis. The goal of these therapies is to postpone and, in some cases, even eliminate the need for invasive surgery and harsh medication.
Common regenerative medicine treatment areas include:
• Large joints (Knee, Hip, Shoulder & Ankle)
• Persistent partial tendon tears (Tennis Elbow)
• Chronic partial rotator cuff tears
• Quadriceps and patellar tendon tears
• Meniscus and cartilage tears
• Muscular tears
• Achilles tendon ruptures
• Plantar fasciitis / Bone Spurs
• Intervertebral disc, SI and spinal facet joints
Stem cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can be used as alternative treatments to steroid injections, opiods and other pain medications, and even surgery as it can help in managing pain from musculoskelatal injuries.
STEM CELL THERAPY: Wharton’s Jelly for Regenerative Medicine Applications
ReGenRX Wellness of Vero Beach, Florida uses GeneXSTEM TM Umbilical Cord Derived Wharton’s Jelly for Regenerative Medicine Applications, i.e., stem cell injections. GeneXSTEM TM is an exciting alternative regenerative medicine therapy.
Wharton’s jelly contains mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, cytokines, and more from young, healthy tissue with viable (LIVING) cells rather than from our own bodies that have aged and undergone the stress of life. Wharton’s Jelly contains an up to 50 times higher concentration of long-chain hyaluronic acid and growth factors than other stem cell therapies.
As we age, the healthy tissue in our bodies can become dysfunctional. The cells in Wharton’s jelly have the potential to replace, reconstruct, and support the same basic functions of the patient’s tissues or cells that are no longer functioning as effectively as they once did. These cells are excellent at fighting inflammation and supporting the body’s ability to heal. Not all regenerative medicine is equal – we want you to receive the best product available to offer you the most hope for healing.
While cortisone steroid injections, NSAIDs, and other pharmaceutical interventions only provide temporary pain relief and can actually cause soft tissue degeneration over time, Wharton’s Jelly stem cell injections actually restore degenerated tissue while providing powerful pain relief. The growth factors in Wharton’s Jelly may replace damaged cells in your body. What's more, stem cell injections contain hyaluronic acid, which lubricates joints and tendons, easing pain and supporting improved mobility.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
While it is well-know that platelets in our blood play an important role in forming blood clots that stop bleeding, their benefit doesn’t stop there. More recently, it has been discovered that platelets contain numerous growth factors that play a critical role in the healing process. In fact, the growth factors present in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) have actually been shown to stimulate stem cell production. These growth factors help initiate the process of tissue repair and recruit stem cells to the site of injury, encouraging tissue healing and collagen production.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of your own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured muscles, ligaments, joints, and tendons.
PRP is taken from your own body via a blood draw. Your blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. The separated platelets are then injected into the target tissue.
Some of the major benefits of PRP therapy is that it can decrease the need for potentially dangerous medications like opioids. Additionally, since PRP injections are created from your own blood, the side effects of this therapy are very limited as your body will not reject or react negatively to them.
