Your body is equipped with the ability to repair old cells and create new cells as needed. However, when you have an injury, your body might need more time than usual to repair the injured tissue. As you age, your regenerative abilities slow down, which contributes to signs of aging and painful degenerative conditions.
Regenerative medicine uses human cellular tissue products, including mesenchymal stem cells and platelets, to stimulate and boost your body’s natural healing response. Mesenchymal stem cells can turn into whatever type of cell your body needs, including bone, muscle, and connective tissue.
The team at Balance Wellspace incorporates regenerative medicine into treatment plans for the whole body. While research isn’t complete on the uses of regenerative medicine, some of the areas and conditions that could benefit from these innovative treatments include:

Most regenerative medicine therapies are injections. For example, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a serum made from a sample of your blood. Your platelets are abundant in the growth factors and proteins that your body uses to repair itself.
Your provider begins by drawing your blood and separating the components in a centrifuge before combining your plasma and platelets into a serum. When your PRP serum is ready, your provider gives you a local anesthetic and injects the PRP into your injured tissue. In some cases, they might use an X-ray to guide the needle to the correct location.
While regenerative medicine stimulates your healing ability, your body still needs time to repair itself. Everyone responds to regenerative medicine slightly differently. You might see a reduction in your pain within a few weeks, or it might take a bit longer.
Some patients need a series of treatments to achieve their optimal results. Your provider at Balance Wellspace creates a personalized treatment plan and lets you know what to expect during your treatment.
