03 May 3 Types of Regenerative Medicine Treatments
Regenerative medicine has made headlines in the world of medical treatments, and over the years, has gained a lot of popularity and publicity because of its promise for healing with little risk in comparison to other more invasive procedures. Regenerative treatments combine many different fields of science from biology to computer sciences in the hopes of understanding and utilizing the human body’s natural structures and processes of restoration to treat what we used to think were untreatable injuries and diseases.
There are three most common forms of regenerative medicine that the R3 Stem Cell Clinics stem cell therapy in Phoenix, Arizona offers patients: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, stem cell therapy, and exosome therapy. PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, oftentimes gets overlooked in the large shadow that stem cell therapy casts, but PRP therapy is very effective in treating an array of ailments. Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy, stem cell therapy, as well as exosome therapy are great alternatives to many other far more invasive forms of treatment.
COMBINING REGENERATIVE THERAPIES
PRP therapy is one of the least dangerous or risky procedures regenerative medical professionals can perform. Plasma exists in everyone’s blood and mostly consists of proteins and water that help the red and white blood cells, as well as the platelets, move freely within the body. Platelets are a type of blood cell that helps blood clot, and once the platelets are injected back into the body at the site of injury, they release different growth factors that help damaged cells repair themselves and reduce inflammation in the afflicted area.
By utilizing the natural healing process that platelet-rich plasma provides, patients are able to benefit from the use of their own blood to help stimulate and hasten the healing process. Additionally, regenerative specialists of stem cell therapy in Arizona have been treating patients with Exosome therapy by injection or IV. Put very simply, exosomes are chemical messages of essential intracellular information so that close and distant cells can communicate with each other and transmit cells functional information back and forth between each other.
Exosome therapy has gained in popularity in recent years but unfortunately, there is too little documented research to definitively say if it is effective. Regardless, stem cell doctors in Phoenix Arizona at R3 Stem Cell clinics recommend patients receive a combination of stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and exosome therapy to ensure the body’s natural processes of healing are most optimally stimulated.
Stem cell therapy and treatments in Phoenix Arizona at R3 Stem Cell have their limitations in that sometimes older damaged cells cannot receive and communicate messages effectively between each other and that’s where regenerative specialists see the most promise in using Exosome therapy. By combining the exosome injection with stem cell therapy, regenerative specialists believe the additional information being transmitted can provide another tier to healing and repairing damaged cells.
Additionally, platelet-rich plasma injections can add yet another layer to the effectiveness of stimulating the body’s natural process of healing and dramatically reduce inflammation of an injured or afflicted area. Inflammation is the number one cause of all injuries and diseases alike, and if regenerative medicine has any say in it, inflammation may one day be a reasonably treatable disorder using this powerful combination of three!
