There are several options for regenerative medicine today. For example Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Structural Support Cell therapy have all been tried, tested and gained wider acceptance within the medical community for various musculoskeletal injuries including tendinitis, ligamentous strain, and osteoarthritis. The reason is simple. They work. And depending on what or how these treatments are done they can be quite affordable. Prolotherapy (for proliferate, or to regrow) involves the injection of natural substances. It is most effect for tendon and ligament related injuries whether in the back, neck or limbs. PRP is stronger and works quicker. Likewise it can be effective for more severe conditions like more severe soft injuries rotator cuff syndromes, and early degenerative joint disease. Structural Support Cell therapy (derived from cells that are harvested from your own fat) are often employed for more severe cases of joint space narrowing for those who wish to avoid arthroscopy or joint replacement. While strict regulations must be followed and it requires the greatest level of expertise to administer with proper hands outcomes are exceptional.
