ABOUT REGENERATIVE THERAPIES
Regenerative therapies are a spectrum of cutting edge therapeutic techniques used to naturally treat and heal the cause of a painful condition rather than masking the symptom. Regenerative therapies stimulate and accelerate your own body's natural ability to heal itself. Two of the most effective Regenerative therapies include stem cell and platelet-rich plasma injections.
Injuries and conditions commonly treated by regenerative therapy procedures include:
Platelet Rich Plasma
Stem cells are "undifferentiated" cells, which allow them to develop into another type of cell that is required to repair or replace damaged tissue.
Stem cell therapy can repair tissues that are too damaged to heal on their own. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissues.
Stem cells are obtained from the patient's own tissue. These concentrated stem cells are the injected into the patient's damaged tendon or joint.
We also provide injections of a purified amniotic source that contain a healing matrix of cytokines, growth factors, and proteins that help to rejuvenate and heal damaged tissue.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy utilizes platelets taken from the patients own blood to rebuild damaged tendons or cartilage.
Platelets normally circulate within the blood stream and are responsible for blood clotting and initiating a healing response in an acute injury. Many acute injuries do not heal adequately and can lead to chronic pain and loss of function of the injured areas. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows us to harvest the patients own platelets and re-inject those platelets into the site of the injury to initiate healing and improvement of function. This typically done under image guidance such as ultrasound and/or fluoroscopy
As a result, the damaged tissue begins to heal. PRP has been successful in not only relieving pain, but also in jump-starting the healing process

Most procedures are performed under the guidance of ultrasound or a fluoroscopy unit to maximize results. We've incorporated the latest innovations of APEX Biologix, which, through their equipment and supplies, help us obtain some of the best concentrations of PRP and stem cells in the industry.
