What is Regenerative Medicine? Regenerative medicine refers to a group of all-natural treatments that are designed to repair, rejuvenate and replace damaged cells, tissues and organs to restore function and facilitate healing.
Regenerative cellular tissue that is harvested from umbilical cords and platelet-rich plasma injections are two natural treatments we use at our medical clinic to help heal damaged or degraded tissues and get you back to living your best life.

Regenerative Cell Therapy
Regenerative cell therapy utilizes a range of different healing factors to promote cell repair, regrowth and rejuvenation. The cells are derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of umbilical cords that have been harvested after a successful C-section birth.
The mothers have been closely screened during pregnancy to ensure the quality of the harvested cells and the collection process doesn’t harm or bother the mother or baby in any way.
The healing components that are prevalent in these Wharton's Jelly derived mesenchymal cells (MSCs) include cytokines, growth factors, collagens, proteins, peptides, exosomes and extracellular matrix.
The reason these regenerative cells are so effective at treating pain is that they get into your tissues to treat the underlying cause of the pain for long-term results. If you simply mask the outward symptoms with medication, any relief you get will only be temporary and you might start a dangerous cycle. All-natural regenerative cell therapy has no side effects and since the cells are so young, the likelihood of rejection is minimal.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is another natural pain relief treatment that is made using a sample of your own blood. When you are injected with PRP, it promotes several types of cell activity, including inflammation, proliferation and remodeling, all of which are necessary in wound healing. PRP is prepared by spinning your blood sample in a centrifuge where the plasma and platelets are separated.
Platelet-rich plasma contains up to five times the number of platelets found in regular blood. Once it’s ready, it is injected into the site that needs attention and the healing process begins. PRP runs very little of rejection since it is made using your own blood.
Regenerative medicine is effective in treating many different types of pain caused by a variety of factors. A few of the issues we treat with regenerative cellular therapy and platelet-rich plasma include knee pain, hip pain, back pain, neuropathy, shoulder pain, elbow pain, plantar fasciitis, neck pain and sciatica.
