Regenerative Medicine May Help Your Injury Heal Faster

Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary treatment that can help people heal faster from injury.

Our medical team at QOMC treats pain, injury, and inflammation with the highest quality and safest regenerative medicine products available. 

 

Regenerative Medicine Explained

Regenerative medicine uses human cellular tissue products (HCTP), including mesenchymal stem cells, to repair injured or damaged body tissue. HCTP are able to regenerate many different cell types and can speed up your body’s healing process and restore optimal function. 

Regenerative medicine isn’t a new medical specialty. The field has been studied extensively for its efficacy and safety. In fact, doctors have been using regenerative medicine for decades, performing stem cell transplants via the body’s bone marrow. 

The cellular tissue products are injected into your injured joint, muscle, tendon or ligament and then undergo a process called differentiation, which means they mature into the appropriate cells needed to heal your injury. For example, if you have torn the meniscus in your knee, injected stem cells differentiate into meniscal cells. 

 

Three types of regenerative medicine

There are three different kinds of regenerative medicine using human cellular tissue products. 

 

Rejuvenation

This kind of regenerative medicine, which uses HCTPs to encourage healing of damaged tissues, helps to overcome the harmful effects of chronic inflammation and other conditions that delay wounds from healing. 

 

Replacement

Replacement HCTP treatment uses the process of differentiation to replace damaged or injured tissue. 

 

Regeneration

This process involves injecting HCTP cells that restore the normal function of injured tissue, reinstating normal range of motion and movement patterns. Regeneration cushions and lubricates the joint allowing for better mobility and decreased pain.

 

What injuries can regenerative medicine heal? 

The FDA has approved regenerative medicine for healing the following body parts:  

Regenerative medicine can treat all major body joints, which are the places that most commonly sustain injury. Researchers hope that human cellular tissue products can someday treat even the most complex conditions, such as spinal cord injuries and heart failure. At present, regenerative medicine treats these conditions: 

Our medical team determines if regenerative medicine is right for your condition by conducting a  comprehensive physical exam and medical history. Regenerative medicine may be combined with therapies such as physical therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and chiropractic care.
