As we grow older, we may develop health conditions and endure various injuries that stop us from living our best lives. As we attempt to retain the normal activities of daily living, we may find that it becomes increasingly more difficult to accomplish with each passing year. Fortunately, medical advancements have been made to assist in reviving our bodies to what they once were; essentially reversing the symptoms associated with aging, various health conditions, and injury-related conditions. Regenerative medicine is not at all a new concept and has been utilized for quite some time. However, it has recently received a surge in popularity due to its effectiveness as shown in various medical studies.
As mentioned by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the generation of baby boomers has led to an increased need in regenerative medicine as the need far outweighs the supply for organ donations and available medical providers. If you are weighing your options to prevent a possible surgical intervention or long-term medication, there are a few ways in which regenerative medicine may be able to help you.
With regenerative medicine, you may be able to revive your skin and internal organs through the production of collagen with stem cell therapy. Stem cells are taken from our bodies themselves and put into a concentrated serum that is then injected into a specific area. Stem cells are known for their healing and regenerative properties as they assist in healing and repair. With a concentrated and targeted treatment, it can work on isolated areas and produce real results.
Isolated and acute injuries can be treated through regenerative medicine with platelet-rich plasma, otherwise known as PRP therapy. PRP therapy targets specific areas with a focused group of cells that have high levels of reparative and healing abilities. This is particularly helpful if you are suffering with a repeat injury in the same area. This treatment has been known to regenerate cartilage and tendons as well.
Regenerative medicine is promising and may be the best medicinal discovery since penicillin. This anti-aging, potentially life-saving medical treatment may prevent or slow the degenerative effects that coincide with many injuries, diseases, and other various health conditions.
