Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Research shows that regenerative medicine may help your body heal itself and restore normal functioning by replacing or regenerating your damaged cells.

Your body normally replaces cells on its own, but when an injury or illness damages your cells, they might lose their ability to regenerate properly.

Mesenchymal stem cell injections are a type of regenerative medicine that has been shown to accelerate healing and reduce inflammation.

Mesenchymal stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the body that have the unique ability to develop into different cells. For example, a single mesenchymal stem cell might become a bone, cartilage, or muscle cell.

The team at One Light Medical use allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells from Predictive Biotech. Allogeneic means the mesenchymal stem cells come from donor tissue instead of from your own tissues. Predictive Biotech products undergo rigorous screening and come from an FDA-registered lab to ensure the highest quality.

Mesenchymal stem cells are usually derived from umbilical cord blood. After childbirth, the umbilical cord blood is typically just thrown away, but with this innovative form of regenerative medicine, these beneficial cells are carefully collected and safely stored until ready for use.

What can regenerative medicine help with?

Regenerative medicine has been shown to help your body rebuild healthy tissue in an area that’s been affected by injury or disease.

The team at One Light Medical might recommend regenerative medicine if you have pain that persists despite treatments like physical therapy and chiropractic care.

Research shows that mesenchymal stem cell injections might improve a wide range of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis. The injections are designed to relieve pain and improve function in many joints, including the knees, shoulders, hips, ankles, and wrists.

What should I expect from my regenerative medicine treatment?

During your initial consultation, the team at One Light Medical asks you to describe your pain and symptoms before reviewing your medical history and performing a physical exam.

Mesenchymal stem cell injections are no more painful than any other type of injection. If you’re particularly sensitive, your provider might apply a topical numbing cream first. You might feel a stinging sensation that lasts for a few seconds.

Because regenerative medicine involves rebuilding tissues, it might take a few weeks or months for you to notice improvement. You might need multiple treatments to get the best results.

New cells continue to replace damaged bone and soft tissue cells over time, essentially regenerating your ligaments, muscles, and joints to diminish or alleviate pain, increase function, and restore your mobility.
