What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is interdisciplinary and combines medical science with engineering to restore function to damaged tissues and organs. Regenerative medicine is a broad field, and much research is still happening. Still, one particular therapy that we offer which falls into this category is the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injected into the body to facilitate the healing process.
More about Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP therapy is a newer therapy that involves drawing some of your blood and filtering it with a centrifuge. This allows the platelet-rich plasma to be separated from the rest of the blood that contains your red and white blood cells. This plasma is then injected back into the body by an experienced healthcare provider.
Platelets in the blood are recognized for their clotting ability. Still, this therapy falls under regenerative medicine because PRP can promote cell reproduction and trigger tissue reproduction in the targeted area. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting PRP into the target area and you should only experience mild discomfort during this kind of appointment.
However, before recommending this treatment, your healthcare provider will thoroughly assess you and take a complete medical history to determine whether PRP therapy is appropriate for your needs and overall health.
Benefits of Regenerative Medicine
Dr. Cheshire and Dr. Pham at the Lighthouse Medical Center serving Pompano Beach, FL, and the surrounding areas incorporate regenerative medicine therapies into your treatment plan when you need a supportive musculoskeletal rehabilitation regime.
Regenerative medicine, including PRP therapy, can treat ligament and joint injuries, accelerate post-surgical healing, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis. It is especially helpful for athletes who need to recover quickly and for patients that are older and heal more slowly.
Finally, platelet-rich plasma is taken from your own body, making it completely natural, and it offers the benefit of functioning as a standalone treatment or as part of an integrative therapeutic plan combining several of our other services.
