Cartilage degradation and injuries are common in athletes and with general wear and tear damage that occurs, over time, with daily activities. Traditional medical treatment regimens focus on pain control and physical therapy to help the body deal with the damage that it has sustained, or sometimes surgery for replacement or reattachment.
Regenerative medicine offers a whole new way to treat these painful and debilitating injuries. We can now help your body heal ligament and tendon injuries with minimally invasive techniques that do not involve surgery and if applied appropriately can result in complete pain relief and healing of partial tears.
One of the latest discoveries in the field of biological based therapies, exosomes have shown tremendous promise and effectiveness. Exosomes are constituents within stem cell and serve as their primary means of communicating with other repair cells. When injected into the region of injury, exosomes initiate a profound repair reaction that ameliorates pain and disability. Currently, RMRM is one of only a handful of clinics in the world to offer this therapy for a multitude of ailments.
Although closely related to stem cell therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy is a biological-based treatment modality unique unto its own. Platelets are blood constituents that aid in the healing process. Contained within are healing factors that enhance one’s natural ability to mend injury. By concentrating the number of platelets in a targeted area, these healing factors are deliberately focused right at the site of action. If you’d like to further consider measures for avoiding surgery, shortening healing time and limiting pain, then come speak to one of the few full-service biological-based treatment specialists.
Stem cell/platelet rich plasma therapy can have amazing healing and anti-pain effects for bones and soft tissues. This sophisticated technology can be used to address conditions like arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle/ligament tears, tendinitis, sports-related injuries and more.
