The Reed Medical Center offers a variety of Regenerative Medical treatments that focus on the regrowth, repair, and replacement of damaged or diseased cells or tissues. Through this process of replacing or "regenerating" human cells, the body’s own repair mechanism is stimulated to restore normal function. Regenerative medicine has the potential to heal or replace tissues damaged by age, disease, or trauma, as well as to normalize congenital defects.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. In this way, PRP injections use each individual patient's own healing system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a procedure where a natural irritant is injected into the soft tissue of an injured joint. The irritant kick-starts the body’s healing response. Prolotherapy is not a surgical treatment. Because of this, it is also known as a regenerative joint injection or non-surgical ligament and tendon reconstruction.
