Regenerative Medicine Today
Regenerative medicine today. At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we have been offering regenerative medicine treatments for Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson for decades. No doubt there are more regenerative options available now than in the past however restoring body function and tissue repair has been a long term philosophy for us. Prolotherapy is a technique where natural compounds are injected into injured tissue such as tendon and ligament with the intent of attracting your body’s own growth factors to the area. PRP (platelet rich plasma) is another option. It this instance growth factors are concentrated from your own blood and then put into the injured area. Stem Cell is the most powerful form of regenerative medicine. Either cells from your own body or that are placental derived are grafted into joints with the goal of reducing pain through tissue regeneration. There are plenty of options and associated techniques that have made regenerative medicine a reality today. Learn more about your options at piedmontpmr.com.
