Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is an innovative field that includes treatments that aim to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. Your body can create new cells to repair injured or damaged tissue. 

Research shows that regenerative medicine treatments such as mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections may stimulate that response and potentially help you heal from soft tissue injuries or degenerative conditions. 

What conditions might improve with regenerative medicine?

Medical researchers are studying the uses of regenerative medicine. Some research indicates that regenerative medicine could be helpful for:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon tears
  • Ligament strains
  • Fractures

Regenerative medicine research identifies new potential uses for mesenchymal stem cells, PRP injections, and other therapies all the time. 

The team at Arctic Medical Center might include regenerative medicine in treatment plans for neck pain, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, and other musculoskeletal ailments. 

What should I expect from regenerative medicine?

The expertly trained medical professionals at Arctic Medical Center deliver regenerative medicine treatments such as mesenchymal stem cells into your injured tissue with an injection. 

Depending on the location of your damaged tissue, they may use an X-ray to ensure the injection is made at the correct place — for example, if they inject the mesenchymal stem cells into a joint. 

The injections are usually well tolerated. You might experience a flare of inflammation after injection as your body’s natural healing response gets started. 

Any initial inflammation usually subsides within a few days, and as your body heals, you might notice that your pain also fades. Most patients have a series of injections to achieve their optimal results. 

How do I know if regenerative medicine is right for me?

The team at Arctic Medical Center provides comprehensive exams and consultations before recommending any treatment, including regenerative medicine. 

They talk to you in detail about your symptoms, injury, and overall health while also performing a physical exam to assess your injury.

The team creates customized treatment plans to address your specific needs, incorporating regenerative medicine with conventional medical treatments, chiropractic care, and other integrative therapies.
