Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine? 

Regenerative medicine is a cutting-edge medical practice that harnesses your body’s innate healing ability. Some types of regenerative medicine use your own cells to enhance tissue repair, while other treatments introduce certain elements that stimulate your natural healing response. 

Which conditions can regenerative medicine address? 

The experts at Modern Pain & Spine use regenerative medicine to address a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, including: 

  • Shoulder pain 
  • Knee pain 
  • Back and neck pain 
  • Tendonitis 
  • Sports injuries 
  • Muscle strains 
  • Ligament sprains 
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis 


Regenerative medicine isn’t just for pain conditions; patients who suffer from a wide range of conditions can benefit from regenerative therapies. 

Which regenerative medicine treatments are available? 

The following regenerative medicine treatments are available at Modern Pain & Spine: 

PRP therapy 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses isolated platelets and other growth factors from your own blood to enhance healing. PRP therapy is a simple process: First, your provider draws a small amount of your blood and then spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other blood components. 

Your doctor then injects the PRP serum into the site of your injury. For example, if you have a torn muscle in your shoulder, your doctor injects PRP into the muscle tissue. Over time, PRP regenerates the tissue to heal the muscle tear. 

Stem cell therapy 

This advanced regenerative procedure uses mesenchymal stem cells collected from either bone marrow or fatty tissue. These undifferentiated cells are activated during the healing process to transform into muscle, bone, cartilage, and other types of tissue, thereby rebuilding damaged structures. 

Like PRP therapy, stem cells are first processed in a centrifuge and then reinjected into the site of injury for intensive cellular regeneration.
