In such instances, regenerative treatments may be a solution. Renew Medical Centers in Cincinnati, Ohio can evaluate whether you’re a candidate for regenerative medicine. This comprehensive alternative treatment is beneficial for chronic pain sufferers of joint pain (knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain, etc.), arthritis, and so much more.

What is regenerative medicine? What types do Renew Medical Centers provide?

Regenerative medicine involves allowing your body to heal itself, using naturally occurring cells, and growth factors.

Renew Medical Centers provide advanced regenerative cell therapy (stem cell injections) and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections to treat orthopedic injuries, arthritis, and other degenerative conditions. For all autologous procedures, we closely adhere to FDA guidelines. Allograft treatments are procured and processed in the United States according to standards and/or regulations established by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the United States Food & Drug Association (FDA).

With our procedures, we use ultrasound guidance for optimal results. Some other regenerative cell therapy providers do not use ultrasound guidance. Without ultrasound guidance, it is less likely the treatment will be placed in the problem area and address the issue.

Our treatments include autologous stem cell therapy (from your own body – also known as Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate or BMAC), growth factor allograft injections, PRP, and other options to provide pain relief. Our treatments are derived autologously (from your own body) or from allograft products (donated tissue). This allows us to provide the most appropriate treatment for each individual patient’s needs. These regenerative treatments have a unique ability to assist your body in regenerating tissue, reducing pain, and reducing inflammation in damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal discs, and bone.

Your medical condition is unique and the Renew Medical Centers team will assist you in selecting the best treatment option.

Once you’re treated, the healing growth factors start to work, triggering cell growth in the area treated. Over the following few weeks, cells grow and divide, forming new tissues. This helps heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through a surgical procedure.

Which areas can be treated with regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy is beneficial for healing many types of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis. The injections help heal your:

  • Knees
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Elbows
  • Feet and Ankles
  • Hands and Wrists
How long do regenerative treatments take to work?

Because you are kickstarting your body’s healing and regenerative process, it does take some time for the treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two months, while others experience improvement within a few weeks. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.

Will I need more than one treatment with regenerative medicine?

Possibly, depending on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury or condition. The Renew Medical Centers team will follow your progress closely over time and may suggest repeating the treatment, just to further encourage symptom improvement. They can let you know what to expect during your consultation and assessment appointment.

Do the regenerative medicine injections hurt?

They are injections after all, so you may feel a bit of stinging, but only for a few seconds. Most patients describe a temporary burning sensation, although it doesn’t last long. If you’re sensitive to pain or are getting the injections in a sensitive area, your practitioner can apply a topical numbing cream. This type of cream decreases some of the stinging sensation from the injection and minimizes your discomfort.
