Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an innovative type of therapy that uses human cells and tissues to promote healing. Research shows that regenerative medicine can help reduce pain and repair damage in injured muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, bones, and cartilage. Some of the most common substances that chiropractors use in regenerative medicine include:

  • Mesenchymal stem cells

  • Cytokines

  • Growth factors

  • Hyaluronic acid

When combined with other treatments and therapies, such as physical therapy, regenerative medicine can help you regain full function after an injury.

Are there different types of regenerative medicine?

Magnolia Comfort Medical, LLC, uses different types of regenerative medicine depending on your injury, such as:

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy

Mesenchymal stem cells are harvested from donor cord tissue that comes from the birth of a healthy full-term baby. After harvesting these mesenchymal stem cells, the team can inject them directly into your injury site to promote healing.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the protein-rich plasma in your own blood to promote healing and repair damage. The process involves drawing your blood and running it through a centrifuge. This isolates the PRP so the team can inject it back into your damaged tissues or joints.

How long does regenerative medicine take to work?

The results of regenerative medicine aren’t instant, as it promotes new tissue growth at your injury site. Depending on the severity of your injury or progression of damage, it can take several weeks or months before you notice a difference in your pain levels. Many patients notice improvements in their mobility after about two to three weeks, but every person is different.

Because every person responds differently to regenerative medicine, you may only need one treatment to feel noticeable results. However, many patients need a few regenerative medicine sessions for the best results.

Which conditions can regenerative medicine improve?

Regenerative medicine can help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve your range of motion and mobility if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Arthritis

  • Muscle or ligament strain

  • Bursitis

  • Tennis elbow

  • Joint pain or stiffness

  • Knee pain

  • Sports injury
