Regenerative Injection Therapy
If you’ve been living with chronic pain that isn’t responding to traditional methods, it might be time to try something new. By using human cell and tissue products (HCT/P) like stem cells and platelet-rich plasma to stimulate cellular activity, regenerative injection therapy helps promote a healing response in the torn or weakened tissue causing you pain and encourages the body’s natural ability to repair itself.
Regenezone,led by The Hormone Zone founders Dr. John Robinson and Dr. Cristina Bosch, along with regenerative medicine expert Dr. Jordan Kopcio, is proud to offer regenerative injection therapy, an innovative alternative to traditional methods of managing—and possibly eliminating—chronic pain. At Regenezone, we combine innovative options and cutting-edge therapies to develop personalized plans that work with your body, not against it, so it can function as well or better than it used before age or injury. You don’t have to settle for traditional, substandard options like medication or surgery to help your chronic pain. With regenerative medicine from Regenezone, you can improve the way you feel and improve the way you live with safe, effective, naturopathic remedies.
What is regenerative medicine?
Despite its recent popularity, regenerative medicine like regenerative injection therapy isn’t anything new. The team at Regenezone has been dedicated to the practice of naturopathic, regenerative medicine for nearly two decades, and Dr. Kopcio himself has more than 10 years of experience using these well-documented, long-proven methods to help people return to the health and activity levels of their youth.
Regenerative medicine and regenerative injection therapy offer patients a new way to help pain by identifying and targeting the root causes of your discomfort, not just covering up the symptoms. Regenerative medicine is unique and highly specific to each patient, restoring the function you’ve lost by working with your body’s own natural processes so you can heal faster, get stronger, and stay active, all while experiencing less pain.
The Role of Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine
As undifferentiated, immature cells–the “raw materials” of the body–stem cells have the capability to change and adapt to the body’s needs, taking on a variety of characteristics from any type of cell before reaching their mature and final function. Adult stem cells are always present in tissue such as the brain, blood and blood vessels, skeletal muscles, fatty tissues around the organs, and bone marrow, ready to divide, self-renew (regenerate), and specify when the body needs to repair or recover. However, they are more limited in their differentiating potential than embryonic stem cells derived from the placenta after live birth.
Stem cells are essentially the body’s repair system, and by harnessing their regenerative and versatile properties, regenerative medicine options like those offered at Regenezone can restore and even improve the body’s function naturally and safely with long-lasting results. When correctly stimulated, these stem cells can transform into the blood, skin, cartilage, muscle, bone, or tissue cells the body needs to heal from the inside out.
Re-energize Your Body and Revitalize Your Life with Regenerative Medicine from Regenezone
For the experienced physicians at Regenezone, regenerative medicine and regenerative injection therapy aren’t trends; they’re trusted therapies for helping you feel younger and better than you have in years. We’ve been at the forefront of safe, effective, natural modalities like regenerative medicine for nearly two decades, and our entire philosophy is built around a passion for helping people live the life they were meant to live.
At Regenezone, we believe you are more than a patient, and that simply focusing on pain isn’t enough for the radical change that’s possible. That’s why we adopt an approach that is personal and precise, where our board-certified naturopathic doctors personally oversee all of your care, and we use only the latest in cutting-edge testing and diagnostic evaluation tools to make sure you’re getting the most out of your care. When you partner with Regenezone for regenerative therapy, you aren’t just improving your health; you’re improving your life.
Medication and other traditional care typically only focus on the symptoms of chronic pain, not the problem, and, in reducing inflammation, they may even suppress the healing process. Regenerative medicine like regenerative injection therapy, however, is designed to discover the underlying mechanism causing pain or dysfunction, then manipulate the growth of cells and tissues at a cellular level toward a process of reparative regrowth, restoring strength, and reducing or eliminating pain.
Sustainable, Long-Lasting Relief
Regenerative medicine like regenerative injection therapy doesn’t just stimulate new cells and tissue growth, it helps the body actually remove and replace the old, damaged tissue causing you pain. When a mild inflammatory response is triggered by care, the increased blood flow and influx of new stem cells to the area encourage the growth of new ligaments or tendon fibers that, over time, begin to enhance the body’s natural capabilities, restore original strength, and minimize or eliminate pain. This regeneration of tissue can accelerate your recovery time after injury, provide long-lasting pain relief, and even help you function better than you did before.
Safe and Effective
Because they use natural substances the body recognizes rather than rejects–such as plasma or stem cells–regenerative modalities like regenerative injection therapy are well-tolerated with low risk and a high success rate. The platelet-rich plasma used in some regenerative injection therapies is derived from the patient’s own blood, while stem cells, either from the patient or a donor source, have a unique ability to specialize—or “differentiate”—to meet very specific needs within the body, allowing the body to use its own tissues for regeneration and promote faster, longer-lasting healing.
Types of Care
Wharton’s Jelly (WJ) is an HCT/P product designed to replace damaged tissue at the site of a structural defect, such as a torn ligament, tendon, or cartilage. Wharton’s Jelly contains naturally occurring growth factors, stem cells, and cushioning components that improve repair, limit inflammation, and reduce pain. The stem cells in Regenezone’s WJ are obtained via an FDA-approved process of tissue collection, which adheres to strict federal and state regulations and inspection compliance requirements.
Extracted from a patient’s own blood and then concentrated through a centrifugal separation process, platelet-rich plasma contains up to 10 times the amount of platelets as regular blood, providing more intensive tissue repair and regeneration capabilities. In addition to regulating critical mechanisms involved in the healing process, platelets also recruit and stimulate your body’s own stem cells to multiply and divide more effectively for optimal recovery.
Also referred to as proliferation therapy, prolotherapy uses the injection of a mild irritant, such as a dextrose solution, into a target area to trigger the body’s healing and regeneration response. By stimulating the repair process at the cellular level, prolotherapy encourages the development of new collagen to help stabilize the joint and strengthen the surrounding tendons and ligaments.
Help for the Source of Your Pain, Not Just the Symptoms
Most pain and injuries occur where there is poor or inadequate blood supply, caused by stretched or torn connective tissues like ligaments and tendons that are designed to hold joints in place. When these tissues become damaged or weak, the joint becomes destabilized and can become painful.
Regenerative care like regenerative injection therapy injects a natural agent like plasma or stem cells into the site of the pain or discomfort and triggers a mild inflammatory response that increases blood flow to the area, facilitates the growth of new tendon fibers or ligaments, and helps the body heal from within.
Better Options, Better Care
Regenerative injection therapy is safe and effective when administered by an experienced professional like Dr. Kopcio, but it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. In addition to regenerative injection therapy, Dr. Kopcio and Regenezone offer a full and diverse complement of regenerative and naturopathic medicine options to help tailor your recovery to your body’s unique needs. Your body works best when it’s working as it should, and at Regenezone, you gain access to an array of methodologies and modalities to optimize every aspect of your health.
