(PRP) Regenerative Joint Treatment

Many times an injury to the body will heal itself, as damaged cells divide to form new, healthy cells. Some types of cells in the body, like those in nerve tissue, are slow or incapable of dividing, so healing in these areas is long term, or impossible. When our joints are damaged, they can sometimes heal themselves, but sometimes scar tissue that stunts healing forms, or tissues that are non-regenerative are damaged. These types of injuries used to be permanent, causing a lifetime of pain. Medical advancements in cell regrowth have given us ways to stimulate healing in chronically damaged joints, and provide increased range of motion and pain relief.

Stimulating Healing

One way to promote healing within a chronically damaged joint is to stimulate cells that have stopped dividing to begin dividing again. Scar tissue left behind from an injury is often the cause of this cessation of growth. By breaking up the scar tissue with a minimally invasive procedure, and increasing the flow of blood through tissues, cells can begin to divide again, and the joint can heal itself.

Providing Building Blocks

If an injury or condition has damaged tissue in a joint that is of a non-regenerative nature, new cells are needed for healing to take place. A regenerative injection of cells that have the versatility to rebuild almost any type of tissue will provide the building blocks needed for healing. An example of these kinds of cells is platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is the main healing component in blood. Stem cell research and other cutting-edge technology has given the medical experts at Freedom Healthcare a leg up on joint healing and tissue regeneration.
