Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a specialized group of therapies that harness your body’s innate ability to heal injuries and damage. These techniques work by harvesting healthy cells from your body, concentrating them to increase their potency, and injecting them into places where you have pain, damage, or disease. When introduced to these areas, these concentrated cells prompt the healing process to begin.

Dr. Aggarwal and his team recommend regenerative medicine techniques to address a wide range of symptoms and conditions, such as:

  • Osteoarthritis and joint degeneration
  • Injuries to the shoulders, hips, or knees
  • Chronic pain, especially in the back, neck, or shoulders
  • Complex conditions like myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia

There are several different types of regenerative medicine techniques, including stem cell therapy.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cell therapy is a technique that uses your stem cells to heal your body. Stem cells have the remarkable ability to become any kind of cell ━ whether it’s bone, muscle, or cartilage ━ because they’re the building blocks of your body.

You can find stem cells in several different places, including bone marrow, skeletal muscles, embryos, and amniotic fluid. When harvested and concentrated, these cells make powerful tools for repairing age-related degenerative problems, including osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. They can also treat musculoskeletal injuries and diseases, such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.

Because stem cell therapy works by triggering the healing process in your body, it can take weeks or months to see improvement after having your injection. In most cases, it doesn’t provide immediate results.

What are the benefits of regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine offers numerous advantages when it comes to managing pain and treating disease or degeneration, such as:

  • Little downtime and few side effects
  • Healthier and stronger joints
  • Minimized joint friction
  • Reduced inflammation and pain
  • Increased mobility

To ensure regenerative medicine can address your chronic pain or injury, Dr. Aggarwal and his team conduct a comprehensive evaluation that includes performing a physical, reviewing your medical history, and discussing your symptoms.
