Regenerative Medicine at Northeast Pain Management
Regenerative medicine therapies take advantage of a body’s ability to heal itself. Adult Stem Cell treatment and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy are minimally invasive, non-surgical treatments that can provide long lasting relief from pain and in some cases help avoid surgery!
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is a concentrated solution of blood product containing platelets, growth factors, and other cells that play a role in the body’s natural ability to heal.
A blood sample is obtained from the patient and then immediately processed in a special machine that separates the blood into many components.
The components comprising the PRP are then injected into the joint, tendon, or other target area using the guidance of an ultrasound or fluoroscopy machine.
What is Adult Stem Cell Treatment?
Stem cells are the only cells in the human body that can transform themselves into other specialized cells. This gives them tremendous healing potential.
Through a simple process, stem cells are obtained from the pelvic (hip) bone. They are then processed and immediately injected into the joint, tendon, or other target area using the guidance of an ultrasound or fluoroscopy machine.
