Regenerative medicine is a viable alternative to surgery and pain medication for various injuries and health conditions. Both cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy can help your body’s own natural healing process target the underlying cause of pain and provide relief that lasts.

How Cell Therapy and PRP Injections Work as an Alternative Solution for Pain Relief
The key to the success of cell therapy and PRP therapy when it comes to pain relief is that they address and target the underlying cause of your pain and don’t just focus on the pain itself. If you just cover up the pain with medication, the real reason you have pain in the first place isn’t addressed, so the pain will return when the medication wears off. This can create a dangerous cycle that continues indefinitely. Replacement surgery is another option for some conditions, but it is always highly invasive and requires a long rehabilitation period.
Regenerative medicine works with your body’s own healing process to heal the problem at the source, so you can have the long-lasting pain relief you deserve. Cell therapy is one of our treatments, and it uses regenerative tissue that’s collected from the Wharton’s Jelly of donated umbilical cords.
Here’s how it works:
- Umbilical cords are donated by willing mothers after a successful C-section birth
- The mothers are screened beforehand, and both mother and baby are unharmed throughout
- The regenerative tissue is young and potent with healing properties like cytokines, exosomes, lipids, proteins, growth factors, peptides, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and more
- The tissue is injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate the healing process
PRP therapy also works with your body’s own healing process and is in the form of an injection; only it is created from a sample of your own blood. The blood sample goes into a centrifuge where the red blood cells and platelets are separated. The platelets are highly concentrated with healing properties that can help resolve your underlying health issues that are causing pain. Both of our regenerative treatments are minimally invasive, and there is little to no downtime or very little chance of rejection associated with the treatments.
