Regenerative Therapy consists of Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP Therapy) and Stem Cell Therapy. PRP Therapyclinically proven to treat pain and stimulate healing in the body. This procedure includes simply injecting a high dose of platelets, concentrated from your own blood, into areas affected by pain. This is a safe and natural way for your body to accelerate the healing process, rather than blocking or masking your pain. Stem cell therapy treatments are unique because they help the body jump start the healing process. Stem cells are the body’s master cells. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to transform into a variety of different cells and replace dying cells, and the potential of rebuilding damaged tissue, muscles, tendons or ligaments
