At Bodyworks Musculoskeletal Medicine, we provide regenerative medical treatment for diagnoses such as meniscus tear, osteoarthritis, anterior cruciate ligament tear, tendinitis, and knee, hip, shoulder, and ankle pain.
The healing mechanisms within your own body, such as stem cells, continually renew themselves to heal injuries you sustain. Serious injuries and aging can hinder your body’s ability to heal itself naturally. Regenerative medicine uses your own stem cells or blood platelets to boost natural healing of injuries, arthritis, and other chronic pain conditions.
Regenerative medicine involves regenerating and replacing damaged tissue by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissue or organs that may have previously been deemed irreparable.
For chronic knee pain sufferers, the regenerative options can drastically decrease discomfort and improve way of life.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), sometimes known as blood injection therapy, is a medical treatment being used for a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, including knee osteoarthritis. This treatment enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself and is used to improve healing and shorten recovery time from acute and chronic conditions.
A2M is a naturally occurring molecule that is found in your blood and functions to remove the destructive enzymes associated with cartilage cell and tissue breakdown within the knee joint.
A2M captures these enzymes and eliminates them from the joint through your body’s natural processes.
Stem Cell Therapy
The majority of complications in osteoarthritis patients are related to the deterioration of cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in your joints. In osteoarthritis, this surface becomes rough. Eventually, if the cartilage wears down completely, patients will be left with bone rubbing on bone.
Stem cell treatment is designed to target these areas within the joints to help with the creation of new cartilage cells. Stem cells collected from the bone marrow of your pelvic bone have the ability to differentiate into cartilage cells. The goal of each stem cell treatment is to inject the stem cells into the joint to accelerate healing and the potential regeneration of new cartilage.
