REGENERATIVE INJECTION THERAPY
Regenerative Injection Therapy
Regenerative Injection Therapy involves the injection of a concentrated solution into damaged soft tissues to promote your body's self-healing mechanisms and form new connective tissue, ligaments, muscle, and tendons.
Here at Dynamic Regenerative Medicine we primarily use Regenerative Injection Therapy to treat chronic pain conditions and musculoskeletal injuries. This in addition to medical cosmetic aesthetic treatment, which specialises in the treatment of skin rejuvenation, scar treatment and hair loss treatment Birmingham.
We have found it most advantageous to employ Regenerative Injection Therapies in conjunction with other proven techniques to more effectively treat chronic pain conditions. Examples are:
An example of this form of approach is performing osteopathic manual therapy of joint and spinal restriction patterns and then exercise for strength and conditioning.
Our Approach to Regenerative Injection Therapy
- Acupuncture / Dry needling
- Exercise therapy and injury rehabilitation
- Diet and Nutrition
Different Options Of Regenerative Injection Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a very popular form a Regenerative Injection Therapy that specifically uses injections to facilitate soft tissue and joint healing, by applying concentrated platelets to injured or damaged tissue. Platelets play a vital role in tissue healing, as they are responsible for bringing white blood cells to injured tissues to initiate a repair process. This repair process begins with a clot formation followed by the releases growth factors that stimulate wound repair.
The bioactive proteins in this process increase stem cell production to initiate connective tissue healing, bone regeneration, and repair, promote the development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the tissue healing process. Studies have shown that increased platelet concentration increases the level of bioactive proteins, thus, promoting further wound healing.
What is the process of PRP?
The process of creating platelet-rich plasma begins with a simple blood collection (20ml of blood taken from the patient). Plasma separation is then achieved through a Platelet Concentrate System (blood centrifugation), and application of the plasma with concentrated platelets and growth factors (injection of the platelet-rich plasma into the injured tissue). P-PRP then stimulates an inflammatory response that works at accelerating tissue repair and regeneration.
What does PRP Treat?
PRP can treat all chronic and acute muscle, joint, and tendon injuries including tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations, meniscal tears, osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain, neck pain and any other areas of injured connective tissue, joints, tendons or ligaments. PRP is sometimes preferred for serious degenerative changes or high-performance athletes when the injury is very severe or complex, as with labral or meniscal tears.
How much PRP would I require?
Treatment for PRP can vary, but most patients require 2-4 sets of injections at 4-6 week intervals. A positive development is usually evident after 2 treatments but may occur after the initial treatment as well. The healing process is affected by diet, exercise, smoking, nutritional supplementation, stress, rest/sleep, and physical manipulation. The risks of PRP are low and the most common side effects are temporary increases in pain, stiffness, and swelling, as well as bleeding/bruising in the area.
The only difference between dextrose prolotherapy and PRP injections is the solution that is being administered, and the resulting enhanced inflammatory effect with increased self-healing potential of PRP.
PRP treatment for hair loss
The platelet-rich plasma PRP treatment is a very popular form of treatment within hair restoration due to its powerful effects, great results and the fact that it is natural, non-invasive and affordable.
PRP treatment for skin rejuvenation (Vampire Facial)
Platelet-rich plasma PRP treatment again is a very popular form of treatment within skin rejuvenation due to its powerful effects in collagen stimulation. PRP treatment gives great results, it is completely natural and results can last up to 12 months.
