Regenerative medicine refers to several different protocols that aim to heal the body and restore function. Regenerative medicine treatments include stem cell therapy, PRP therapy, and prolotherapy.
Stem Cell Therapy
Especially beneficial at treating joint pain from osteoarthritis, stem cells are filled with cytokines and growth factors to help repair damaged tissues. Harvested from tissues, these stem cells can help regrow cartilage, bone, and more.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a noninvasive protocol used to heal a wide amount of musculoskeletal injuries. A sample of your blood will be spun in a centrifuge to separate and isolate the platelet-rich blood plasma from the red blood cells. Rich in growth factors, this PRP is then injected into the injured body area to encourage regeneration.
Prolotherapy encourages your body to heal itself from chronic pain caused by ligament and tendon injuries. The protocol involves injecting a natural, concentrated sugar substance into the injured area to trigger healing inflammation.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) consist of two aspects: the treatment of conditions (physical medicine) and the recovery of patients (rehabilitation). This healthcare branch prevents, diagnoses, and treats physically-impairing conditions and injuries that affect the nerves, muscles, and bones. Protocols used in PM&R include massage, assistive devices, and medications.
The result of chronic muscle shortening, fibromyalgia causes widespread muscle pain. The S.H.I.N.E® protocol (Sleep, Hormones, Infection Control, Nutrition, and Exercise) encourages patients to take the necessary steps for muscle relief.
Custom Compounded Pain Creams
When applied to the skin, custom compounded pain creams affect the underlying nerves. Pain creams available at Dr. Borenstein clinic are formulated based on the patient’s specific pain needs. Ingredients are intended to work collectively and may include lidocaine, gabapentin, and more.
Dr. Borenstein treats conditions that cause the following issues:
When you have neck pain, you’ll likely have signs like stiffness, tingling to sharp pain, and migraines. You can develop these symptoms from bad posture, osteoarthritis, and stenosis.
Shoulder pain can result in weakness and loss of motion. This harm can occur from sports injuries, as well as conditions like bursitis and osteoarthritis.
While back pain commonly presents in ways such as aches or stabbing pain, it can also cause leg pain. Common causes of back pain include muscle strains, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and a herniated disc.
You’ll know that you have knee pain when your joint is stiff, swollen, and weak. Conditions that can make it difficult for you to walk include ACL tears and arthritis.
