The Power of Regenerative Medicine
Our body has an amazing capacity to heal and regenerate itself. Here at Texas Spine & Pain Center, we believe that the most effective treatments use the body’s natural tendency for repair and rejuvenation–which is why we offer advanced regenerative medical therapies for our patients.
Regenerative medicine is a recent innovation in the medical field, as conventional treatments often focus on “managing” the symptoms rather than healing the body. In contrast to conventional medical therapy, regenerative treatments are long term medical solutions that work to recover health and regenerate tissue, restoring the body to its optimal condition.
Stem Cell Therapy — This procedure is ideal for treating patients suffering from arthritis and joint injury/damage because it stimulates the body’s natural process for healing. Our body naturally produces stem cells, which helps heal and regenerate tissue in the event of an injury. As we age, we tend to produce less stem cells, which is why we heal slower as we get older. Stem cell therapy involves the injection of stem cells directly into the affected area, prompting the body to rebuild its damaged joint. Each injection also contains hyaluronic acid (also a naturally occurring substance in our body), which lubricates joints, relieves pain, and recovers lost mobility.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy — PRP Therapy is an excellent treatment for stimulating long term healing and pain relief. This non-surgical method is ideal for patients with active lifestyles who want to avoid the downtime of surgery. The advantage with PRP Therapy is that it uses the platelets from your own blood to repair the injured tendon or cartilage. This enhances your body’s natural stem cell production, leading to fully healed and regenerated tissue. Other benefits of this treatment include: reduced inflammation, decreased postoperative blood loss, increased resistance to infection, and reduced or eliminated dependence on pain-killing narcotics.
Hair Regeneration — This is a non-invasive treatment that corrects thinning hair and/or hair loss. Unlike hair transplantation, this treatment heals and stimulates the hair follicles in your scalp, halting hair loss and even restoring original thickness. A combination of platelet-rich plasma (harvested from your own blood) is combined with an FDA approved protein complex and injected into the scalp, resulting in hair regrowth and improved fullness. Our hair regeneration therapy is ideal for patients suffering from male or female pattern hair loss, Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Areata, and hair loss from metabolic or nutritional factors.
The PRP Facial — This innovative treatment stimulates the skin’s collagen production by using the growth enzymes found in your own blood. Unlike other conventional anti-aging treatments that use powerful chemicals or foreign substances, the PRP facial improves and tightens your skin using your cells’ natural capacity for repair and regeneration. The result is glowing, vibrant skin with improved elasticity and fullness.
Enjoy the Benefits Of Regenerative Medical Therapy
Do you look in the mirror, thinking that your best days are behind you? Maybe you think decay and breakdown is natural, and it’s a fool’s errand to even try to do anything about it. Fortunately, recent innovations in the field of regenerative medicine have changed our understanding of the human body for the better. With knowledge comes power, and while we will continue to get older, we can at least choose to age better. Besides, who says getting older means having to lose the zest and vitality that makes us who we are?
