Regeneration Therapy

Regenerative Medicine for Pain Management

Regenerative therapy includes Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), amniotic fluid, exosomes, and stem cells. These are new and exciting treatment alternatives that are used for many different pain conditions.  If you are looking to avoid steroids, medication or surgery, this may be the right option for you.

Regenerative medicine works by using your body’s own healing power to decrease inflammation and repair damaged tissue.

Our regenerative medicine doctors have advanced training in the use of PRP and stem cell therapy.

PRP

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is simply plasma that has a higher concentration of platelets than regular blood. Platelet activation plays a vital role in the body’s healing process. To obtain this, your doctor will take a small amount of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components.

Amniotic Fluid

A graft obtained from an elective, full-term cesarean section. It does not contain stem cells but contains growth factors, collagens, proteins and cytokines designed to reduce pain and inflammation.

Exosomes

Signaling molecules released by stem cells. They facilitate growth and repair by activating the patient’s own cells.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC’s)

Specialized cells that have the ability to differentiate into other cells. When your body is injured, they are recruited to assist with the healing process. They release growth factors, cytokines and anti-inflammatory proteins. Stems cells can be extracted from your own bone marrow or fat. They can also be collected from an external source such as the umbilical cord.

What can be treated with regenerative therapy?

  • Joint pain and osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis/Tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Rotator cuff injury

What are the advantages?

Regenerative therapy is a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgery or steroid injections. It can provide pain relief with little or no downtime.

Is it effective?

At Oklahoma Pain Center, we are committed to practicing evidence-based medicine. Although these therapies are relatively new, there are thousands of published research studies available, and many are ongoing. Many studies show that these therapies are effective at relieving pain and regaining function. Most importantly, these treatments have shown to be safe and have a low risk of adverse effects.

Does insurance cover it?

No, however we do offer financing options. You can also use a Health Savings Account (HSA) to help cover the cost.
