Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a branch of medicine that works particularly well alongside your body’s natural healing processes, which can do a lot on its own. Peak Spine & Sports Medicine offers a form of regenerative medicine called stem cell therapy to enhance healing for certain injuries and degenerative damage.

Stem cell therapy implements the use of stem cells. These cells have not yet differentiated, meaning they’re ready to fill one of many roles within your body. When stem cells reproduce, they either become more stem cells or specialized cells that serve a particular function. 

The Peak Spine & Sports Medicine team injects stem cells locally into areas of damage that need repair. They use ultrasound imaging to make sure they place the injections with precision. The cells they use can come from several different safe sources, including your fat tissue or bone marrow, or consensually extracted umbilical cord blood.

What can regenerative medicine treat?

Peak Spine & Sports Medicine uses stem cell therapy in comprehensive treatment plans for various overuse injuries, degenerative conditions, and chronic pain. 

After a physical exam and possible imaging tests to make or confirm your diagnosis, Peak Spine & Sports Medicine can use regenerative medicine to treat:

  • Ligament injuries
  • Tendon injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease

The Peak Spine & Sports Medicine team offers other treatments alongside regenerative medicine that give you the best possible result from stem cell therapy. These include physical therapy to help with strength and mobility and nutritional counseling for better overall functioning. 

What are the benefits of using regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine opens the door for better healing and may be able to help you avoid surgery now or in the future. Stem cells are natural and stimulate overall health, making them a popular alternative to pharmaceutical medications that relieve pain and other symptoms without addressing the cause directly.

After you undergo stem cell therapy at Peak Spine & Sports Medicine, healing happens rapidly, and recovery time is at a minimum. Because the stem cells in treatment often come from your body (fat tissue or bone marrow), there is minimal risk for infections or rejection as a result of your injections.  

Stem cell therapy and other forms of regenerative medicine stimulate processes of healing that already happen naturally in your musculoskeletal system. Book your treatment consultation over the phone or online at Peak Spine & Sports Medicine today.
