Get Back in the Game Faster with Regenerative Medicine Treatment

Have you been suffering chronic pain from a sports-related injury? If your quality of life has severely deteriorated from knee or ankle pain, there is a relatively easy and nonsurgical solution available to help.

At Advanced Medical Solutions, located in Newark, Delaware, our highly trained team of specialists can treat your pain through a process known as regenerative medicine. This treatment plan not only addresses chronic pain, but helps heal any degeneration of tissue and joints that are frequently injured while playing sports.

How it works

Regenerative medicine is made possible through stem cells, which can be used to regenerate damaged tissue in a therapeutic way. Stem cells have a unique ability to transform into other cells, which not only pick up signals from damaged cells in other parts of the body, but also help reduce inflammation in muscles, cartilage, bones, and tendons.

Depending on the needs of the patient, regenerative medicine may also include collagen, amino acids, and other growth factors.

The team at Advanced Medical Physicians uses harvested stem cells from umbilical cord blood: a process also known as allograft therapy. These unique cells are able to become many different cell types, such as those found in bones, muscles, and other organs.

These stem cells are collected from expectant mothers after planned Caesarean sections who decide ahead of time to donate their stem cells. This process causes no harm to the mother or child in any way, since umbilical cords are typically thrown away after delivery. The cord is then screened for any impurities that may damage its effectiveness.

How it’s used

Our practice uses regenerative medicine for many medical problems, such as joint pain, arthritis, bone or cartilage degeneration, tendon strains and tears, and sports injuries. For athletes in particular, regenerative medicine can reduce pain associated with repetitive movements, such as tendonitis or bursitis.

These movements are commonly used in tennis and baseball. With regular injections, you can avoid the inconvenience of surgery without reducing your playing time. Combined with adequate amounts of rest and therapeutic exercises, regenerative medicine amplifies and facilitates your body’s natural healing ability.
