Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses human cells, organs, or tissues to restore function. This type of medicine helps repair damage and injury by stimulating your body’s natural healing response. By invoking your body’s own ability to repair damage, regenerative medicine can reduce pain and improve function without merely treating your symptoms.

Which conditions can regenerative medicine improve?

Many injuries, diseases, and neurological disorders can benefit from regenerative medicine, including:

  • Back pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Arthritis

If you’ve suffered an injury that didn’t heal properly, leading to chronic pain and impaired mobility, regenerative medicine can help improve your body’s overall function while repairing damage.

How does regenerative medicine work?

Most regenerative medicine procedures use mesenchymal stem cells harvested from a donor cord or tissue from the birth of a full-term healthy baby to help stimulate cell regeneration at your injury site.

Once they harvest these mesenchymal stem cells, the team can inject them directly into your injured joints, muscles, or other tissues.

How long does regenerative medicine take?

Mesenchymal stem cell injections can take up to 90 minutes, depending on the area you’re treating. You may need several treatments, spaced out over a few weeks, to notice lasting results.

What sets regenerative medicine apart from other recovery methods is that you can typically return to your normal activities almost immediately after each injection.

After your final session with White Sands Integrative Medical, you may feel relief for anywhere from six months to several years, depending on how well your body responds to regenerative medicine.

You can improve and maintain your results by participating in physical therapy, following a healthy diet, and exercising regularly.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine offers many benefits when compared to traditional medicine, which focuses on treating symptoms rather than eliminating the problem altogether. Some of the most popular benefits of regenerative medicine include:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Enhanced recovery
  • Improved functionality
  • Reduced risk for reinjury
  • Minimized need for surgery

If you’re looking for lasting relief from pain or disability, regenerative medicine may be the right option for you. To schedule an appointment with the White Sands Integrative Medical team, call the office or book a visit online now.
