Do You Have Any of These Conditions? Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy May Be Right for You
Our bodies can heal a number of different injuries and conditions largely on their own, but sometimes they need a little extra help. Regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy in Naples, FL uses stem cells from healthy c-section umbilical tissue to give your body the tools it needs to repair issues.
Could regenerative medicine be right for you? Read on to learn more about what it involves and the conditions it can treat.
Platelet-rich plasma and regenerative medicine
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentrates the platelets in your own blood, which help the blood to clot during injuries. It also contains growth factors and mediators, which aid the body in healing various injuries. By taking blood samples and concentrating the platelets, doctors can inject PRP into your tissues to help your body heal faster. PRP has been proven successful in treating issues with tendons, muscles, meniscus, ligaments, bone, wounds, intervertebral discs and cartilage. If you have an injury that still won’t heal, consider PRP regenerative treatments to speed your recovery.
Stem cell therapy
Stem cells can turn themselves into any kind of cell found in the body—they’re a type of “blank slate” cell that develop every kind of tissue while in utero. Stem cells are harvested from healthy c-section deliveries, and are extensively screened in FDA-approved labs before being used for stem cell therapy in Naples, FL The stem cells are delivered via injection directly at the injured site, allowing them to develop into similar tissue that may not normally regenerate on its own. The treatment is minimally invasive, almost pain-free and eliminates a need for surgery or general anesthesia.
Patients have found that stem cell therapy is particularly effective for degenerative diseases, where the body is unable to heal itself. Tissues like cartilage are a finite resource—once they’re worn down, they’re gone forever without medical intervention. Stem cell therapy reduces that risk, as well as the risks from undergoing major surgery.
