Regenerative medicine refers to non-surgical, drug-free treatments for pain relief that include cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. The key to these treatments is that they are minimally invasive and provide pain relief at the source, rather than simply masking symptoms.

Cellular Therapy and PRP Injections for Pain Relief
Cell therapy and PRP injections are the regenerative treatments we use to treat the conditions mentioned above. These treatments are safe and effective alternatives to traditional surgery and pain medication. They are minimally invasive and help relieve pain at the source, resolving the cause of the pain instead of simply masking the symptoms.
When injected into your damaged or degraded tissue, these treatments can assist your body's own natural healing mechanism for long-term pain relief. When you have regenerative treatments, there is very little downtime, if any, and you can usually get on with your day like normal after your appointment.
Here's how cell therapy works:
- Tissue is collected from the Wharton's Jelly of donated umbilical cords
- These cords have been willingly donated after a scheduled C-section, and the mothers are screened beforehand to help ensure quality tissue is used
- The baby and mother are unharmed during this process
- The tissue contains powerful healing compounds that include growth factors, cytokines, proteins, exosomes, lipids, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and more
- These healing properties are injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate healing
Here's how PRP therapy works:
- A sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge
- The red blood cells and platelets are separated as the blood sample spins
- The result is platelet-rich plasma, which is rich in healing properties
- The PRP is injected into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate healing
