Regenerative Treatments Q & A

 

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a new area of medical care focused on finding ways to heal diseased and damaged tissue to alleviate symptoms and improve health.

Though research is in the early stages, doctors have been using various forms of regenerative medicine for decades. Organ transplants and bone marrow transplants (stem cell transplants) are types of regenerative medicine.

Researchers are currently investigating how to use various cells and tissues to regenerate healthy tissue and organs, which may benefit people with chronic health conditions such as Type 1 diabetes and heart disease.

At Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation, Dr. Topalli uses two forms of regenerative medicine - platelet-rich plasma and laser therapy - to activate your body’s natural healing and pain-relieving powers to heal your diseased or damaged tissue.

Am I a candidate for regenerative medicine?

When you visit Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation for a pain management consultation, Dr. Topalli conducts an in-depth evaluation to fully understand your pain condition so he can develop the most effective treatment plan. 

Some conditions that may benefit from regenerative medicine at Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation include:

  • Joint pain
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Neuropathy
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprains and strains

Dr. Topalli may consider you a good candidate for regenerative medicine if you’re suffering from one of these pain conditions and fail to get relief from less invasive treatments. 

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a form of regenerative medicine created from a sample of your blood that has a high concentration of platelets. 

Platelets are known for creating blood clots to stop wounds from bleeding. However, they also release growth factors and specialized cells that help repair the damage that caused the bleeding.

With PRP therapy at Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation, Dr. Topalli injects the healing properties directly into your diseased or damaged tissue to accelerate the healing and repair process.  

How is laser therapy regenerative medicine?  

At Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation, Dr. Topalli uses the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser to treat chronic pain conditions. This advanced laser tool delivers therapeutic wavelengths that reduce inflammation and pain.

The laser energy also stimulates your body’s natural healing process. The light energy created by the laser penetrates your skin and interacts with your cells to increase activity to accelerate healing.

When it comes to pain control, you deserve more than just pain management; you deserve pain relief. To learn more about regenerative medicine at Atlantic Pain Interventions & Rehabilitation, call the office or book online today.
