Regenerative Medicine Q & A
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a field that seeks to replace damaged tissues and organs. This may be as a result of an illness, trauma, or congenital tissue.
How is regenerative medicine different from traditional pain-relieving medicine?
Routine medical procedures focus on treating the symptom, whereas regenerative medicine addresses the tissue and cells responsible for the ailment. At Transformation Health & Wellness, we use two therapy procedures: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Exosomes.
What is Exosome Therapy?
Exosome therapy is a new player in the field of regenerative medicine based on the working principles of Stem Cell therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma. So what are exosomes? They are vesicles primarily produced by stem cells that carry signaling proteins and genetic information from cell to cell.
The Importance of Exosome Therapy
When in good condition, stem cells communicate perfectly with each other. In case of an injury, they rush to the site and repair tissues. However, age, genetic disorders, and diseases such as Lyme are known to affect stem cell functionality. This results in injuries taking longer and longer to heal and more pain.
With this in mind, exosome therapy works by injecting exosomes directly to the affected point, which causes the cells to return to the normal functionality triggering the healing process.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a regenerative procedure that relies on your body’s growth factors to stimulate healing and repair. So, how exactly is it done? PRP uses a range of injections that contain a concentration of the patient’s platelets to trigger and accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The injections are prepared by taking a measured amount of the patient’s blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The concentrate is then injected back to the affected body part.
