WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Regenerative medicine is a rather new field of study that has begun to show much promise over the past few years giving hope to thousands of patients worldwide. For the past few decades and presumably longer, the main strategy of clinical medicine has been only to identify symptoms and use medications or surgery to treat those symptoms which is rarely successful and very exhausting both for the patient and the medical team. Regenerative medicine’s main goal, on the other hand, is to zero in on the injury or disease’s point of origin, and replace or repair damaged tissues and cells so the body’s natural process of healing can occur.
R3 Stem Cell therapy in Phoenix, Arizona specializes in a myriad of different regenerative medicine therapies to help treat chronic pain/inflammation, fight diseases, treat cancers, and even help combat the dreadful process of aging. Regenerative medicine combines 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 or diseases. There are two most common forms of regenerative medicine that R3 Stem Cell offers patients: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell therapies in Phoenix Arizona. Regenerative medicine is changing the face of clinical and surgical practices and is paving the way towards more intuitive and natural medical therapies.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY
Have you ever heard people talking about PRP therapy, but not quite understood what it is? Platelet-rich plasma therapy has been gaining a lot of notoriety with athletes and celebrities like Tiger Woods, Joe Rogan, and hundreds of others receiving these injections to treat injuries of all types. Regenerative medicine doctors collect a patient’s blood and use a machine to separate the platelet-rich plasma so that it may be used to stimulate the body’s natural process of healing. Plasma mostly consists of proteins and water and this helps the red and white blood cells, as well as the platelets, to 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. This phenomenon stimulates the body’s natural healing process and is far less invasive than other classical treatments. PRP treatment in Phoenix Arizona at R3 Stem Cell encourages patients to receive treatment to help treat muscle injuries, arthritic pain, tendon or joint injuries, as well as cosmetic facial revitalization therapy.
STEM CELL THERAPY
R3 Stem Cell therapy Phoenix Arizona specializes in four different types of stem cell therapy: bone marrow-derived cell therapy, adipose cell therapy, amniotic cell therapy, and umbilical cord tissue cell therapy. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to become specialized and differentiated based on the location of the injury and have the ability to replace damaged cells and tissues to stimulate the body’s natural process of healing. These cells are commonly used in medicine to help damaged tissues and cells restore themselves completely and or be replaced by the new specialized cells.
Because stem cells are already found in the body, it is far less invasive than most procedures and has promise in helping treat a range of illnesses from Parkinson’s disease to diabetes. R3 Phoenix Stem Cell treatments help renew and restore tendon, cartilage, muscle, bone, and skin cells to help the patient’s body heal most naturally and successfully. Stem cell treatment Arizona is the most commonly used regenerative treatment offered for injuries and diseases alike.
