Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine focuses on restoring the tissues in your body that are diseased, damaged, or defective without any invasive procedures or surgery. 

Your team at Total Body Advanced Medicine uses regenerative therapies that complement the clinic’s philosophy that your body is a self-healing organism. 

During your regenerative medicine session, your provider implants allografts of donated umbilical tissue, into the area where you are experiencing a problem. 

If you have pain or decreased mobility because of a musculoskeletal problem, research suggests regenerative medicine taps into your body’s healing potential to diminish your pain and restore function. 

What are tissue allografts?

Tissue allografts are harvested from donor umbilical cord tissue. Extracting tissue allografts is entirely harmless and doesn’t affect the babies in any way. In addition, the tissue allografts are pre-screened and pre-approved for the process. 

Tissue allografts are unique because they are multipotent. This means they can divide and self-renew into any type of tissue, including bone, fat, cartilage or muscle. This versatility makes tissue allografts ideal for regenerative medicine applications.

What conditions does regenerative medicine treat?

A number of chronic and acute conditions respond very well to regenerative therapies. A few of them include:

  • Chronic degenerative arthritis
  • Herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Joint pain
  • Inflammation
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis

Your provider also uses regenerative medicine therapies to help alleviate shoulder, knee, and back pain.

Is regenerative medicine right for me?

Your team at Total Body Advanced Medicine conducts a comprehensive physical examination to determine if you’re a candidate for regenerative medicine treatment. Your provider considers your health history, your current condition, and your goals as well. 

If you’re in generally good health and suffer from an acute or chronic musculoskeletal condition, it’s likely that regenerative medicine will work well for you.

What can I expect after my regenerative medicine appointment?

Following your regenerative medicine appointment, you may experience some slight swelling and irritation at the treatment site, but any discomfort should subside within 24-48 hours.

The amazing effects of your regenerative medicine therapy mean your body’s tissues and cells begin to regenerate over time. You’ll get an initial surge of relief within a week or so of your first appointment with gradual improvement over the coming weeks and months.
