“Regenerative medicine is focused on developing and applying new treatments to heal tissues and organs and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects,” according to Mayo Clinic.
Spine MD goes a little more in-depth on their definition of regenerative medicine as “a modern non-operative treatment solution utilizes the body’s natural healing process to rebuild damaged tissue, heal injuries more effectively, and eliminate pain. Regenerative medicine targets the underlying source of pain without relying on medication or surgery, and leads to increased function and mobility with a shorter recovery time than surgical options.”
Ultimate Health Medical Clinic in Littleton is passionate about using natural and effective methods to treat injuries and conditions such as sports injuries and arthritis.
When working with patients who are experiencing joint pain, our medical team creates customized care plans designed to treat without surgery or prescribing medications, so regenerative medicine is a natural fit for our medical office. Our team specializes in treating patients suffering with knee pain and shoulder pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma, otherwise known as PRP, is produced by spinning your own blood in a centrifuge to separate the blood’s plasma (spin it down to get the PRP). The plasma is then injected into the injured areas, such as where you are feeling knee pain. This stimulates growth factors to support the body’s ability to heal itself naturally and improve musculoskeletal problems, eliminating the need for surgery or pain medications.
Pro Athletes Look To Regenerative Medicine
Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl star Hines Ward and pro golfers like Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka have had similar treatments for their sports injuries, but regenerative medicine isn’t just reserved for elite athletes. The medical advancements in regenerative medicine and PRP have been helping regular people like you and me recover from chronic pain caused by various injuries and even arthritis pain more and more.

Our Littleton medical providers have used PRP injections when treating conditions such as knee pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, and more. Regenerative medicine is also an extremely effective method for torn tendons, tendinitis, muscle and joint injuries, and arthritis-related pain. Many orthopedic docs or surgeons may immediately recommend surgery, which has so many downsides, including a much longer recovery period. Regenerative medicine has proven effective without the need for surgery, which is why it’s becoming increasingly popular.
