What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine, commonly known as tissue engineering, helps restore, maintain, or improve your muscle function by using biological substitutes.
Scientists, stem cell biologists, doctors, and bioengineers are currently developing new treatments to help your damaged tissues and organs that have lost function due to aging or disease. Those researchers are discovering potential treatments for diabetes, degenerative joint conditions, cardiovascular diseases, and neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease.
Traced back to the 1900s, the study of regenerative therapies isn’t new; the first bone marrow and organ transplants were performed decades ago. The fields of science and medicine make advancements every day in the hopes of providing innovative solutions for conditions that are beyond repair today.
How are regenerative therapies helping sports medicine?
The deterioration and injury of our musculoskeletal systems keep occurring as we partake in rigorous recreational activities and continue to live longer than the generations before us.
Regenerative medicine offers therapeutic approaches for treating injuries, deterioration, and deformities of skeletal parts like your bone and cartilage, as well as tendons and ligaments in your muscles and connective tissues. It may help injuries such as:
- Shoulder Pain
- Arthritis and Degeneration of your knee
- Tendonitis/Tendinosis of your bicep/tricep
- Golfer’s and tennis elbow
- Partial tear of your rotator cuff
- Repairing Joints
Is regenerative therapy right for you?
Rather than helping to manage your condition and minimize your symptoms, regenerative therapy targets the root of the problem. It offers treatment methods that are safe and effective. Regenerative therapy may help avoid the cost and long recovery time of treatments such as knee replacement or rotator cuff surgery.

Before coming to Ultimate Health, I figured I would be doomed with knee pain forever. Every other doctor told me I needed surgery, which was something I didn’t want to do at an older age. The Regenerative Medicine protocol I’ve been doing with the team at UH is a natural and effective way to allow my knee to heal itself on its own. I didn’t fully understand what regenerative medicine was or if it would work, but I am a believer now. The UH team walked me through the entire process and my knee pain is almost non-existent.
