Regenerative medicine is beneficial for patients because it’s a form of therapy that uses their bodies’ own resources to heal itself. There are three major types of regenerative medicine. Rejuvenation, which boosts the body’s own ability to heal itself; replacement, which uses healthy cells to replace damaged cells in the body; and, regeneration, which uses a specific type of cell to restore damaged tissues. There are countless benefits to all types of regenerative medicine depending on the injury or disease the patient has. This form of therapy combines science with medicine to find ways for the body to heal, whether it be with blood plasma or stem cells.
One type of regenerative medicine is stem cell therapy. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells in the body that can grow to become the type of cell that is needed around the disease or injury. The cells are pulled from one area and are relocated to an area of inflammation, injury or disease. The cells repair that area by then forming into the tissue, organs, muscle or even bone that are needed to heal the area. Another type of regenerative medicine that can greatly help you after an injury or with a disease is PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, which uses one’s bloods plasma to heal injured areas of the body. The blood plasma is taken from the body and the platelets and plasma are separated and injected into the area of need. The PRP accelerates the healing process and encourages cell growth in the area. These aren’t the only ways this type of medicine can help you, but these are the two most prominent and effective treatments.
