Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a specialized area of medicine focused on harnessing your body’s natural ability to heal. These therapeutic approaches work by introducing healthy cells that prompt the healing process into areas of your body with damage or disease.

When you have a regenerative medicine treatment, your body works to repair damaged tissue, regenerate new cells, and restore healthy function in the area. Because of its ability to trigger the healing process, it’s a valuable tool for treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Headaches
  • Joint degeneration and osteoarthritis
  • Injuries to your shoulders, hip, and knee
  • Chronic pain, especially in your shoulders, neck, or back
  • Conditions like myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia

There are several different types of regenerative medicine techniques, including stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

What is stem cell therapy?

This form of regenerative medicine relies on your stem cells to restore your health. These cells are the foundation of your body and can become several different types of tissue. You can find stem cells in different areas of the body, from bone marrow to placenta tissue and amniotic fluid.

When Dr. Soccio injects stem cells into your injury or pain source, they trigger the healing process, and your pain diminishes.

What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?

PRP therapy takes advantage of the vital growth factors found in your blood to help you heal.

This regenerative medicine technique involves drawing your blood and spending it in a centrifuge machine to concentrate these growth factors. At this point, Dr. Soccio can inject them into your injury site to trigger the healing process.

What are the advantages of regenerative medicine treatments?

Regenerative medicine offers numerous benefits. Not only are they minimally invasive, but they also come with few side effects and don’t require any downtime.

Additional advantages of regenerative medicine therapies include:

  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Restored mobility
  • Decreased friction between your joints
  • Improved tissue health

When you have regenerative medicine therapy, the healing process begins, but it can take a few weeks or months before you see results.
