Stem Cells And PRP
Breakthrough Stem Cell and PRP Treatments in Los Angeles
Imagine if your body’s internal healing processes could be harnessed to repair various tissue injuries without surgery, giving you the ability to play with your kids again, hike, swim, bike, do all the things you want to do and live your life pain free. Now, thanks to stem cell and PRP therapies, that dream may become a reality.
Stem cell therapy has been used in clinical settings for over 70 years. In the field of pain management, stem cell research and therapy are still relatively new, but doctors are hopeful that stem cell and PRP therapy can take pain management and treatment to a higher level.
Regenerative medicine for musculoskeletal injury is a rapidly evolving field where the body can rebuild and regenerate itself. Regenerative medicine has been thrust into the limelight due to high profile athletes such as Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, golfer Tiger Woods and football player, Hines Ward, using regenerative treatment methods rather than undergoing surgery. Many athletes have experienced remarkable recoveries. Hines Ward, for example, recovered in only two weeks from a knee MCL sprain with the help of PRP and went on to help the Pittsburgh Steelers win a Super Bowl!
Anecdotally, this type of therapy has helped hundreds of athletes get back on the field quickly, allowing their participation in high-level competition after sustaining ligament and tendon injuries to their knees, shoulders, ankles, hips and elbows.
Stem Cell Injections For Arthritis
While high-profile pro athletes grab all the attention and headlines when it comes to regenerative medicine, they are not the only ones who benefit. Middle-age and elderly folks can also benefit from a variety of regenerative modalities that can seemingly turn back the clock and avoid interventional surgical procedures. This includes great potential for arthritis and chronic pain relief, help for autoimmune syndromes, organ failure, neurologic conditions and aesthetic procedures for facial skin care and scalp hair rejuvenation.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) And Stem Cell Therapy
At Interventional Pain Management we offer a new, highly advanced regenerative medicine treatment utilizing stem cell therapy. Rather than addressing pain from arthritis and soft tissue injuries solely with treatments designed to mask pain, these new advancements are aimed at actually repairing the tissue damage and eliminating pain.
Amniotic-derived stem cell activator injections are relatively new in the field of regenerative medicine, but their role is becoming more prominent as their potential becomes apparent for musculoskeletal injury repair. This therapy is not new in medicine, having been used for decades in wound care and other medical specialties. In the fields of orthopedics, pain management and rheumatology, amniotic-derived stem cells have the potential to become an effective type of therapy. Amniotic fluid contains heavy concentrations of growth factors, including hyaluronic acid, exosomes, antimicrobial components and stem cell activators that can work in the human body without producing an immunologic rejection response.
Thanks to stem cell and PRP therapy, we’re now offering new options, choices, and alternatives for difficult medical conditions such as joint pain. These include injections for knee, shoulder, lumbar spine facets and sacroiliac joints. We can provide PRP and stem cell-based treatments, which are at the forefront of modern regenerative medicine.
