If you’re experiencing chronic pain due to soft tissue damage or injury, perhaps it’s time to consider Regenerative Medicine. Regenerative Medicine is a growing field within pain management. It utilizes the biological process of replacing, repairing, and regenerating human cells and tissues to restore proper function and relieve pain symptoms.
The Regenerative Medicine options available at Millennium Health and Wellness are Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections, Stem Cell Therapy and Low-level Laser Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is obtained from the patient’s blood. After performing a blood draw, we concentrate the necessary biologics to obtain an injectable volume. Growth factors and other cytokines are then injected into the area of need to stimulate the healing of soft tissue. This is a minimally invasive procedure requires little to no recovery time.
Stem Cell Therapy
We use amniotic stem cells (harvested from an amniotic sac – not an embryo!) to stimulate tissue repair and help accelerate the healing of soft tissue. Stem cells don’t have specialized functions and have the ability to differentiate into any cell in the human body. This allows them to adapt to the injured or damaged environment for healing. This is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no recovery time.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
We use low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to stimulate and accelerate cellular healing by increasing the production of the cell activity. It works by bringing an increase of oxygen into the injured area through the blood transport system (LLLT directly affects the mitochondria inside the cell, allowing for an increase production of ATP – energy – and cellular regeneration).
