Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a treatment approach that leverages your body’s natural ability to heal. These types of therapies introduce healthy cells and tissues to areas where you have damage or disease. This approach triggers your body’s natural healing response.

After receiving a regenerative medicine treatment, your body repairs injured tissue, generates new cell growth, and restores function in the area. This makes it a valuable tool for treating numerous conditions, such as:

  • Headaches
  • Joint degeneration and osteoarthritis
  • Injuries to the knee, hip, and shoulders
  • Chronic pain, especially in the neck, back, or shoulders
  • Conditions like fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome

There are several types of regenerative medicine treatments designed to treat a variety of conditions, including stem cell therapy and trigger point injections.

What is stem cell therapy?

This regenerative therapy treatment uses stem cells to restore your health. Stem cells are your body’s natural building blocks.

There are several types of stem cells found in adults, embryos, placenta tissue, and amniotic fluid. In adults, stem cells are found in your bone marrow, blood vessels and blood as well as tissues like your muscles and brain.

When stem cells are introduced to areas of damage in your body, they prompt your body to heal, which naturally reduces your pain.

What are trigger point injections?

Trigger point injections disrupt the pain cycle by stopping muscle spasms.

Trigger points are tight knots of spasming muscles or fascia tissue that create pain. When your muscles are continually spasming or tense, they grow inflamed, and more spasming occurs.

By injecting local anesthetics or anti-inflammatory medications to your trigger points, your muscles relax, and the pain cycle is interrupted.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine treatments?

Regenerative medicine treatments come with numerous advantages. They’re performed on-site at Washington Integrative Health, have few side effects, and don’t require lengthy recovery times.

Additional benefits of regenerative medicine treatments include:

  • Reduced inflammation and pain
  • Decreased friction between joints
  • Restored mobility
  • Stronger and healthier joints

Because most regenerative therapies trigger your body’s natural ability to heal, it can take a few weeks or months to see maximum results, depending on your condition and overall health.
