“Regenerative medicine is focused on developing and applying new treatments to heal tissues and organs and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects,” according to Mayo Clinic.
Spine MD goes a little more in-depth on their definition of regenerative medicine as “a modern non-operative treatment solution utilizes the body’s natural healing process to rebuild damaged tissue, heal injuries more effectively, and eliminate pain. Regenerative medicine targets the underlying source of pain without relying on medication or surgery, and leads to increased function and mobility with a shorter recovery time than surgical options.”
Our Littleton chiropractors at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic have always looked for natural and effective ways to treat injuries and conditions such as sports injuries and arthritis. If you have suffered a sports injury, we look at how we can help you in our office, without recommending surgery or prescribing medications, so regenerative medicine is a natural fit for our chiropractic office, and we've helped so many patients already, particularly those with knee pain and shoulder pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma, otherwise known as PRP is where we take your own blood, put in a centrifuge to separate the blood’s plasma (spin it down to get the PRP), and then inject it into the injured areas. This stimulates growth factors and allows the body to heal itself naturally and improve musculoskeletal problems, without surgery or pain medications.
Pro Athletes Look To Regenerative Medicine
Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl star Hines Ward and pro golfers like Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka have had similar treatments for their sports injuries, but regenerative medicine isn’t just reserved for elite athletes. The medical advancements in regenerative medicine and PRP have been helping regular people like you and me heal from various sports related injuries and arthritis pain more and more.

Our Littleton chiropractors have used PRP injections to treat knee pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, and more. Regenerative medicine is also an extremely effective treatment for torn tendons, tendinitis, muscle and joint injuries, and arthritis-related pain. Many orthopedic docs or surgeons will immediately recommend surgery, which has so many downsides, including a much longer recovery period. Regenerative medicine has proven effective without the need for surgery, which is why it's becoming increasingly popular.
