Mark has bad knees from his high school football days, and for many years, that has been one of his defining features. He has long since accepted this flaw and has planned his life accordingly. Recently though, Mark met a girl that he enjoys spending time with; however, she enjoys being active and Mark has found it difficult to keep up. Once he started spending time with her, he became aware of how much he had to tone down his life to accommodate his knee pain. Immediately Mark decided that he did not want to continue down this road, and began doing some research on treatment. He heard good things about regenerative medicine and began asking “What is human cellular therapy?”
Human cellular therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses adult stem cells to speed up recovery and heal areas, like ankles and knees that are slow healing. When you schedule a consultation with the RxWellness Spine & Health Tysons care team, we will provide care that is natural, holistic, and minimally invasive. Our goal is to help improve your condition by healing the source of the problem and preventing future problems and returning symptoms. When you work with our care team, we will work hard to provide the best solution for you.
What is Human Cellular Therapy?
Human cellular therapy is the process of transplanting human cells so they can be used to repair damaged tissue. The cells are taken from one part of the body and then used to repair damage to another part of the body. Cellular therapy is used to effectively reduce pain, increase range of motion, and can even help patients avoid surgery.
When you work with the RxWellness Spine & Health Tysons team, we specifically utilize platelet-rich plasma therapy, which is a type of human cellular therapy that transports adult stem cells to the injured area by drawing the patient’s blood, centrifuging, separating, and reinserting it to the injured area.
Platelet Rich Plasma
The blood is composed of various components such as plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP treatment is the process of using a component of the blood, known as platelets, to treat patients for various conditions. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors that are very important in the healing process. PRP treatment uses the centrifugal process to create a dense concentration of platelets to then reinject into the injury site. The treatment exposes the injured area to a high concentration of platelets to speed up the healing process in acute pain and injury. The PRP process follows these simple steps:
- Draw the patient’s blood.
- Spin the blood in a centrifuge.
- Separate components of the blood, and isolate the platelets.
- Reinsert the platelet-rich blood into the patient at the site of pain or injury.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Treatment?
Human cellular therapy can be used as an effective pain management tool. The treatments are fast and safe and the results are effective and long-lasting. It is a more ideal alternative to surgery because the method is minimally invasive and does not require the use of painkillers or other prescription medications. There are very few risks of side effects associated with human cellular therapy because the body is being used to heal itself, and there is little chance of rejection.
What Can PRP Treat?
Cells are the building blocks of the human body and are responsible for carrying out every single function necessary for keeping us alive and well. Sometimes some cells become damaged or diseased, and when that happens, it becomes very difficult for that system to function properly. It is as if that system is understaffed and backed up. Human cellular therapy is the process of introducing new and healthy cells to a damaged area to improve pain symptoms and improve recovery. Some painful conditions that are treatable with human cellular therapy include:
- Autoimmune Diseases
- Rebuilding damaged cartilage and joints
- Orthopedic Conditions
- Knee pain
- Ankle pain
