Conditions that Respond Well to Regenerative Medicine

Medical research has only scratched the surface of the body’s capabilities. The more we learn, the more we realize that our systems can do amazing things — including heal themselves.

But sometimes they need a little help. Rather than turning to medications, regenerative medicine turns to components already in your body. Using these natural substances, it stimulates and supports your body’s ability to heal. That’s why Dr. Halina Snowball offers regenerative medicine at Integrated Pain Solutions in Stamford, Connecticut.

Which conditions can this exciting advancement in medicine treat? Find out here. 

Understanding regenerative medicine

To best understand how regenerative medicine can help with so many different conditions, it’s first helpful to understand this approach to treatment. 

Regenerative medicine uses human cells — derived from your body or from a consenting, thoroughly screened donor — that stimulate certain processes in your body. 

PRP therapy

One regenerative medicine we use is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. To get the PRP, we take a small sample of your blood, then separate out the platelets in a centrifuge. 

When injected into an area where you need healing, the platelets go to work, stimulating growth factors that help your body repair and alleviate pain in the treated area.

Stem cells

We also provide treatment with stem cells. These cells are basically blank slates. When injected into a problem area, your body converts them into the types of cells it needs to heal the area. 

Conditions that regenerative medicine can treat

Here’s a look at a few of the different areas where regenerative medicine is shown to be effective:

Chronic pain

If you’ve been living with pain, it’s time to try a new treatment. And with regenerative medicine, you can rest easy knowing that treatment comes with little to no risk of side effects. 

At our office, we use regenerative medicine to treat chronic issues like:

In other words, this treatment is versatile. 

Sports injuries

There’s a reason high-profile athletes like Tiger Woods have turned to regenerative medicine. By introducing materials that help your body heal faster, regenerative medicine can shorten the recovery period for a wide variety of sports injuries, including muscle tears, sprains, and strains.  

Specific conditions

Regenerative medicine has been particularly exciting for people living with osteoarthritis. Treatments can target your cartilage damage, introducing materials to support tissue regeneration in your affected joint. This, in turn, reduces your pain while improving your mobility. 

Regenerative medicine can also help people living with nerve damage. 

Regenerative medicine like PRP and stem cells have helped people with a variety of conditions find relief. If you’re ready to see what regenerative medicine can do for you, call us at 203-293-0549 or request an appointment online today.
