Regenerative Therapy Q & A

What is regenerative therapy?

Regenerative therapy – also called regenerative medicine – is a branch of biotechnology that utilizes stem cells and joint injections to repair and regenerate damaged tissues naturally. Regenerative therapy can be used in the following areas:

  • Shoulders
  • Elbows
  • Wrists
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles

The team at IHS Medical Group offers regenerative therapy from mesenchymal cells, joint injections to relieve pain and inflammation, wound healing therapy, and neuropathy treatment. To determine if you’re a candidate for regenerative therapy, the team performs a consultation and physical exam to understand your current condition, overall health, and lifestyle.

How does regenerative therapy work?

Regenerative therapy works by introducing stem cells and other natural anti-inflammatory products into damaged tissues for repair on a cellular level. The stem cells and anti-inflammatory products contain the building blocks necessary for cell growth – including proteins, amino acids, and cytokines – and those molecules necessary to prevent further damage. Once these building blocks are administered via an injection, the cells begin to grow and differentiate into the types of tissues needed to repair the damaged areas.

Common conditions that can benefit from regenerative medicine include:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Radiculopathy
  • Peripheral neuropathy

Regenerative medicine can be used to repair muscles, ligaments, and tendons and to improve blood flow to injured tissues for faster healing.

What can I expect during a regenerative therapy visit?

Once you’re ready to begin your regenerative therapy, the team prepares your skin by cleaning the surface and applying a topical numbing cream, if needed. The team then uses a sterile syringe to inject either stem cells or other healing solutions. You may feel a small pinch during the injection. The entire procedure lasts under five minutes.

How long does recovery take after a regenerative therapy visit?

Since regenerative therapy is a minimally invasive procedure, you can return to your normal activities the same day. You may experience mild soreness at the injection site for two to three days. Over the next few weeks and months, the healing properties of your injection take effect and begin the repair process. In most cases, patients begin to experience pain relief in two months, though you may notice a difference after two weeks.*
