Regenerative medicine seeks to regenerate the tissue or cells that have been damaged or degenerated and led to pain, as opposed to simply treating the pain symptoms with an anti-inflammatory. Regenerative medicine options such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can be administered as an effective treatment for tissue or joint damage, ultimately treating your pain.
- PRP can be a beneficial option for patients suffering with chronic tendon, and/or joint pain that have been unresponsive to other methods of treatment. This method involves utilizing platelets from your own blood, and injecting it into the painful joint. The platelets secrete growth factors that boost cell division and prompt tissue regeneration. If you have already tried the conservative care treatment options (anti-inflammatory medications, rest, physical therapy, or steroid injections) and still continue to experience pain, you may be a good candidate for PRP and should discuss this option with Dr. DeCaria. Not everyone is a good candidate for regenerative medicine.
