Regenerative medicine is centered around healing yourself by introducing naturally-occurring cells, growth factors or other components of human tissue prompting your body to create and regenerate your damaged cells. It also involves using research in tissue engineering, and molecular biology.
Many people opt for regenerative medicine treatments when they don’t wish to go the traditional route with medications and surgery, which can often pose unwanted side effects and risks.
An allograft is any human tissue or fluid such as a ligament, tendon, bone, or a section of skin donated from one person to another for healing purposes.
A woman’s placenta contains a wealth of basic healing components that can be isolated, purified and injected to heal an injured or painful area. Placenta also contains:
When amniotic fluid is injected into your body, it transforms your cells to repair your injury. The other components of allografts are there to decrease inflammation and assist in the regeneration process.
Amniotic tissues contain a blend of collagen, cell adhesion molecules, and growth factors that are important in healing an injured area.
As soon as your medical provider injects amniotic allograph components, they begin to work immediately and prompt cell repair and growth. Over the weeks following your treatment, your cells heal and regenerate.
You might feel a slight stinging sensation during your injection, but it’s well-tolerated. Your Aligned Medical Group provider can apply a topical numbing cream to the area to make the procedure more comfortable for you, if necessary.
The Aligned Medical Group offers amniotic allograft treatments for healing bone and soft tissue conditions, including arthritis. The injections can be used for:
Since regenerative medicine involves regeneration and promoting new tissue growth, how quickly you experience results depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.
Unlike steroid injections, such as cortisone, that only relieve pain short-term and can potentially lead to further joint degeneration, regenerative medicine can provide long-term results.
Most people experience a dramatic reduction in pain anywhere from a few weeks to three months after a single treatment. Repeat injections are exceedingly rare since 95% of patient experience significant relief with only one procedure. You might need a repeat treatment to enhance the tissue growth if after several months you don’t notice a significant improvement.
