Studies indicate that chronic pain is a significant issue for approximately 20% of the U.S. adult population. In a country with 258 million adults, that’s at least 71.5 million people whose pain directly impacts their daily living habits. If you or a loved one is one of them, regenerative injection therapy could be the right option for you, minimizing painful symptoms and possibly remedying the cause of this pain! Here’s what you need to know:

Types of Regenerative Injection Therapies
There are several types of regenerative injection therapies, all of them using biological materials found in the body (often the patient’s own) to enhance tissue healing. At ThriveMD, we offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments and stem cell therapy. Common problems which can be addressed with regenerative injection therapy include (but aren’t limited to) musculoskeletal injuries; arthritis, degenerative disc disease and more!
How Does Regenerative Injection Therapy Work?
A regenerative injection therapy treatment delivers a concentrated solution of natural biologics to a patient so that his or her body can restore itself to optimal functioning.
PRP and stem cell therapy are synergistically advantageous for many patients. They involve harvesting the biologics needed for treatment from the patient himself. With these treatments, platelet-rich plasma and/or stem cells are extracted from the patient’s own body and then used to treat various types of joint, and soft tissue trauma. At times, platelet-rich plasma can be used alone — specifically when treating acute injuries — since it inherently contains a concentrated amount of the growth factors, proteins and cytokines that naturally facilitate wound healing. At other times, stem cell therapy is either added in combination with PRP and other biologics, or used on its own to treat more chronic and/or degenerative joint diseases. In these instances, stem cells are especially beneficial because they can initiate cellular repair, sending signals that instruct the body to reduce inflammation, create new cells and build new tissue. These treatments can ultimately lead to dramatic improvements in pain and decrease ongoing degeneration.
