Existing pain therapies have been very good at decreasing pain by masking discomfort in a “band aid” fashion with medications like narcotics, steroids, or NSAIDs. These therapies do not fix the underlying problem.
Fixing Tissue Injury
So how is the issue actually repaired, whether it’s hip/knee/shoulder arthritis, back or neck pain, rotator cuff tendonitis, golfer’s or tennis elbow, or a ligament injury?
Regenerative Medicine at Colorado Clinic has the capability to restore anatomy by using regenerative therapies with platelet rich plasma therapy, stem cells, and growth factors to facilitate a healing response in one’s own body.
Stem Cells are similar to a blank slate and may change into any number of cell types for tissue regeneration depending on the environment where they are placed.
Colorado Clinic Stem Cell Procedures
Stem cell injection treatments include:
These are all low risk, minimally invasive, same day, outpatient procedures. The services may be partially covered by insurance.
Initial research is showing these stem cell therapies to provide substantial promise in healing injury while decreasing pain. For example, most professional sports leagues have approved of platelet rich plasma therapy along with the World Anti-Doping Association.
Pro athletes who have received regenerative medicine treatment include the likes of Tiger Woods, Rafael Nadal, Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Bartolo Colon and many more.
All of the treatments at Colorado Clinic are performed by Board Certified physicians.
