How Regenerative Medicine Can Treat Common Conditions

Regenerative medicine offers a way to use your body’s natural healing properties to repair injuries, restore function, alleviate pain, and promote healing. At OasisMD, our providers use a team approach to regenerative medicine to harness the power of stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). 

At our offices in San Diego, Temecula, and Encinitas, California, we use regenerative therapies to heal many health conditions, provide pain relief, and rejuvenate your appearance. Keep reading to learn how regenerative medicine can help treat some common conditions. 

Understanding regenerative medicine

Your body has a natural healing system that works to repair and regenerate damaged cells. Regenerative medicine gives these processes a boost to speed the healing process and promote repair. 

At OasisMD, our team uses two types of regenerative therapies: stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. 

Stem cell therapy

You have unspecialized cells your body uses to repair areas affected by disease or injury. By directly injecting extra stem cells into these areas during stem cell therapy, our team helps speed your healing, while helping reduce your pain. 

PRP therapy

During PRP therapy, your provider at OasisMD takes a small sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. The platelets form a super-concentrated solution of nutrients and special growth factors that stimulate cell growth and promote healing.      

Common conditions regenerative medicine helps

Regenerative medicine is gaining popularity and finding more applications every day. Here’s a look at some of the common conditions the different therapies can help! 

Arthritis and joint pain

The anti-inflammatory reaction regenerative medicines trigger help patients suffering from osteoarthritis by alleviating the swelling and inflammation that cause their pain. In addition, these therapies promote healing and can restore function and increase the production of healthy tissues. 

Tendon injuries

Tendon injuries are common and can take months to heal. Regenerative medicine speeds the healing process and helps restore healthy tendons faster. They also ease pain and reduce inflammation.

Facial rejuvenation

Because regenerative therapies stimulate the production of collagen and boost the health of your blood vessel, they can help rejuvenate your face by improving the tone, texture, and elasticity of your skin while also smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.  

Hair loss

Over 80 million American men and women struggle with hair loss. Regenerative therapies offer an innovative way to stimulate hair growth in two ways: lengthening the growing phase of your hair cycle so it takes longer to lose hair and by stimulating new hair follicles to promote hair growth in balding or thinning locations.  

Soft tissue injuries

By restoring your body’s natural healing processes, regenerative medicine therapies encourage normal functioning and repair of damaged soft tissues. They also help keep pain at bay and reduce inflammation that may be associated with injury or disease. 

These are only some conditions regenerative medicine can treat. Contact the team at the OasisMD office nearest you in San Diego, Temecula, or Encinitas, California, to learn if regenerative medicine can help! You may also book your appointment online.
