Regenerative cells are the body's version of a blank slate. They’re found throughout the body in places like the blood, bone marrow, and skin. regenerative cells are basic, undifferentiated cells the body uses as they are needed. When regenerative cells divide, they can become new regenerative cells or they can develop into various kinds of specialized cells, such as bone cells or muscle cells.
During regenerative medicine, Dr, King harvests your own regenerative cells from your bone marrow, most commonly from the iliac crest of your hip. regenerative cells found in bone marrow do the best job at healing injuries and joint damage by repairing cartilage, bone, ligaments, and tendons.
The regenerative cells are extracted and added to a special matrix that’s then injected into an injured area. The regenerative cells multiply and take on the characteristics of the injured cells to produce new, healthy cells. The natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of regenerative cells facilitate healing and pain relief.
Any type of musculoskeletal injury can benefit from treatment with regenerative cells. If you were injured in a car wreck, tore a knee ligament playing basketball, or hurt your hip in a slip-and-fall accident, regenerative medicine is a treatment option for you.
Regenerative cells also help with the common conditions of aging. If you have arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal stenosis, or other musculoskeletal issues, regenerative medicine may speed healing and offer relief from pain when used as part of a medical chiropractic care plan.
Regenerative medicine injections are a minimally-invasive, nonsurgical treatment approach. They’re administered in the office during a regular visit and require little downtime after the procedure compared to the long recovery time required for surgery.
The risk of side effects is minimal because your own regenerative cells are used, so there’s no chance of an allergic reaction or rejection of the cells. Once injected into your injury site, they begin to repair damage and stimulate cellular repair. Pain and discomfort begin to slowly diminish as the healing process continues. Over time, you may experience easier movement, improved range of motion, and increased strength in the injured area.
