Regenerative Medicine in Wilmington, DE
Regenerative medicine is about making you and your body the best you can be by repairing and restoring damaged tissues and using your body's natural healing abilities.
What Happens to Your Body Over Time
As the years go by, body stress accumulates, causing your tendons, ligaments, joints, and other structures to wear down. Sports, activities, and lifestyle can all lead to:
- Loss of muscle strength
- Thinning bones
- Nerve damage
- Joint degeneration
How Regenerative Medicine Can Help You Regain Your Health
Regenerative medicine combines many different techniques to help repair or replace damaged or worn–down tissues. Regenerative medicine taps into your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Treatment Options in Regenerative Medicine
At Delaware Sports Medicine, you can choose from a wide variety of regenerative medicine treatment options. These are two of the most popular treatments:
Stem cell therapy uses foundational cells known as stem cells. These cells are injected into your body and can transform into other types of cells, including blood, nerve, and skin cells. Stem cell therapy can repair and renew damaged areas of your body including tendons, joints, ligaments, and nerves.
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is a component taken from your blood. A small sample of your blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates out the platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is applied to damaged areas and helps repair and rejuvenate your tissue. PRP is an excellent option for repairing and renewing damaged skin, ligaments, and tendons.
Why You Should Consider Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine can help you get relief from chronic pain associated with joint, tendon, ligament, muscle, and nerve damage. Unlike conventional medicine, regenerative medicine uses your body’s natural processes to heal itself. Regenerative medicine can also help you regain function and range of motion, so you can be more active and enjoy life more.
What You Can Expect From Regenerative Medicine Treatment
Regenerative medicine treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and require no hospital stay, so you can easily fit them in with your lifestyle. You will notice a decrease in pain and other symptoms typically within a few weeks of treatment.
