Perhaps you’ve been advised that regenerative treatment may be something you should look into for a sports-related injury or to aid in the reduction of chronic or acute pain. You may already understand that regenerative medicine involves the use of a variety of stem cells. In fact, sometimes cells from your own body can be used to help reboot damaged tissue for faster healing. The field of regenerative medicine is swimming with interest right now, with some treatments currently available and new ones being researched constantly.
Since this field is just a few decades old, at most, many people are curious as to what they can expect in terms of actual results if their doctor recommends regenerative therapies. Dr. Solomon Kamson, MD, PhD, Director of the Spine Institute Northwest, offers a number of different types of regenerative treatments to promote healing at the cellular level. Dr. Kamson uses BioD regenerative therapy, MatriStem A-Cell injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, amniotic cell matrix therapy, and stem cell therapy. Sol Kamson places regenerative therapies to work for patients whenever applicable, but especially when they can be used to repair damaged tissue that is causing pain without having to resort to more invasive types of surgery.
Stem cells can develop into a variety of cell types through a process called differentiation. They can amplify your body’s natural healing abilities and encourage new cartilage tissue growth in addition to tendons and ligaments. When used for sports injuries, regenerative therapies also reduce pain and improve function.
Some notable individuals who have been treated with regenerative medicines include famed football player Peyton Manning. Some years ago he received stem cell therapy for a neck injury that had been difficult to repair. He was able to continue on with his career afterwards and lead his team on to win the Super Bowl. In 1999, actor Gene Wilder’s physician used stem cell therapy as part of a layered approach to successfully managing and treating his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Rocker Ozzy Osbourne’s son, Jack, has multiple sclerosis. Doctors have used regenerative medicine to help keep his condition stable. Angel Di Maria, the South American soccer star, tore a hamstring in 2014. Stem cell therapy treatments put him back on the field.
