What is Regenerative Medicine?

  • Ligament and tendon injuries

  • Hair loss

The Benefits of Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure that provides significant pain relief through ultrasound-guided injections. Used for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, regenerative medicine offers many benefits, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Increased recovery time and no anesthesia required
  • Proactive and long-lasting results
  • Minimized risks and side effects
  • Improved range of motion and functionality

While traditional over-the-counter medication may mask your symptoms and pain, regenerative medicine treatment from Gonstead Physical Medicine is an effective option that provides long-term pain relief.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Regenerative Medicine Treatment

Plasma is a component of your blood that includes specific proteins. After receiving a medical history and physical examination, your doctor may recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help heal your body. Utilizing your blood composition, PRP stimulates your body to grow healthy cells faster to repair damaged tissues.

If you’re a candidate for PRP, your doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan that targets the root cause of your pain. During a typical one-hour session, the PRP process includes:

  • Drawing an appropriate-sized sample of your blood depending on the injection site
  • Placing the blood into a centrifuge to separate the blood components
  • Preparing the separated plasma for injection
  • Using ultrasounds to pinpoint the correct injection areas based on your diagnosis
  • Injecting the PRP into your target location

Once injected, the platelets break down, release growth factors, and increase oxygen to help the cells or tissue repair. With increased healing abilities, you’re able to get back to a pain-free lifestyle quickly.
