The human body has amazing regenerative capabilities. By using the body’s own cells and advanced scientific techniques, Dr. Silberberg and his team can help you manage your pain through regenerative medicine. It’s important to speak to a medical professional before beginning a regenerative procedure, but the results will absolutely be worth your time.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy in Austin
Platelets are cells found in the bloodstream that promote healthy blood clotting while also delivering proteins that help the body heal wounds. By taking samples of your own blood and removing other blood components with a centrifuge, blood plasma with a high concentration of platelets remains. When injected into a problem area, this platelet-rich plasma accelerates healing.
Platelet-rich plasma speeds up the restoration of soft tissues like muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Research has also seen its benefits in treatment of arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and plantar fasciitis. Your treatment begins with drawing blood and then separating the plasma, a process which takes less than an hour. The plasma is then injected at the target site. As with any process that requires drawing blood, it is recommended that you drink lots of water beforehand, especially in the 24 hours leading up to the procedure.
Austin Stem Cell Therapy Specialists
The unique property of a human stem cell is its capability to develop into multiple different cell types. They are the raw materials of the body, with the ability to become any kind of cellular building block with specialized function. After being harvested safely from your own body, stem cells can be delivered to target areas to encourage growth of new, healthier cells. With the regenerative properties of stem cells, your body is healing itself in ways previously thought to be impossible.
A stem cell therapy procedure begins by harvesting stem cells from your bone marrow. These stem cells, along with platelet-rich plasma, are injected into a problem area. Depending on the injection site, the stem cells can then become new bone or cartilage cells. This treatment proves effective for those who suffer from osteoarthritis and/or chronic pain, as well as people recovering from ligament damage.
