What is Regenerative Therapy?

Injections for Knee Pain, Arthritis, Tendonitis & More

For many patients with debilitating knee osteoarthritis, treatment options are limited: steroid injections, joint replacement surgery (and replacement alternatives), hyaluronic acid injections, pain management, physical therapy, etc. REGENERATE’S, natural cutting-edge therapy options like amniotic membrane injectables can be used to successfully help patients with knee osteoarthritis, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and degenerative arthritis to name a few.

Regenerative therapy is a revolutionary new potential alternative to surgery that may allow you to recover from painful joint conditions faster than traditional options. Instead of painful, invasive surgery or a regimen of pain-management medications, regenerative therapy patients generally experience much quicker recovery times, without all of the lingering side effects.

How do amniotic membrane injectable therapies work?

Regenerative therapies, such as the utilization of amniotic membrane injectables take advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. How does that work? REGENERATE’s regenerative products are considered to be anti-inflammatories, similar to cortisone/steroid shots, but can have long term regenerative and pain relief effects.

One of the main differences of REGNERATE’s products compared to steroid shots is they are natural and considered to be self-diagnostic. When injected to a localized area (such as, inter articular “in the joint space”), the products can be self-diagnostic. The products look for localized inflammation, directing the product and instructing the body on how to heal injured areas. These types of regenerative therapies go far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.”

While cortisone and other drugs only provide temporary pain relief, many regenerative products have been found to restore degenerated tissue while providing pain relief. Many components in the natural amniotic membrane injectables contain content such as growth factors, cytokines, and lubricants, such as hyaluronic acid, which is commonly used in the industry to help lubricate joints, easing the pain and helping restore mobility.

Results and pain relief time frames will vary from patient to patient.

 

What benefits can amniotic membrane injectable therapy offer?

Amniotic membrane injectable therapy provides a protective cushion that both supports damaged joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues. It can be safe and effective. Learn more about the benefits this treatment has to offer:

  • A natural product.
  • No steroids, which can cause further degeneration.
  • REGENERATE’s injectables rely on naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agents, such as cytokines, contain structural support scaffolding, such as hyaluronic acid, which lubricates cartilage and contain growth growth factors, which have been researched showing promotion of new cartilage and tissue growth.

Are REGENERATE’s amniotic membrane injectables safe?

Products produced from donated human tissue are deemed qualified for transplantation by the AATB-accredited recovery agency used by our laboratory supplier. Pre-screening lab tests specify the donor to be free from risk factors and active infections of applicable communicable diseases as required by the FDA.

The donor serology test panel used by our laboratory is one of the most extensive in the industry, testing for several pathogens that could be missed by less extensive testing. REGENERATE’s laboratory supplier conducts a 14-day bacterial/fungal test performed by a third-party lab to confirm its products are free of contaminants.

What could REGENERATE’s amniotic membrane therapy do for me?

When REGENERATE’s amniotic membrane injectables are introduced into an area of your body that is causing pain (for instance arthritic knees, shoulders, joints, tendons, etc.), they can begin to stimulate your body’s natural healing response, and also help decrease pain and inflammation. Even after one session, many of our patients experience a reduction in pain. IF you suffer from pain in any of these areas, this type of therapy may be for you:

  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Hip pain
  • Wrist
  • Any other joint pain you may be experiencing.

Before you decide to have debilitating joint surgery, look into REGENERATE’s regenerative therapies.

What are the advantages of regenerative joint therapy?

  • It’s not surgery,
  • It’s a natural product, a natural process
  • It addresses the problem, unlike traditional injectable options that only treat symptoms.
  • There’s little-to-no recovery time.
    • REGNERATE’s procedures are outpatient procedures and most of our patients recover from the procedure within a day. Healing time varies for each patient.
  • No anesthesia or other unnatural medications are involved that could trigger side effects or other adverse reactions.

Where do REGENERATE’s regenerative products come from?

  • For clarification, REGENERATE’s products DO NOT come from embryos or aborted fetal tissue. While some individuals may have ethical issues with regenerative products, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic membrane injectables raise no ethical or moral questions.
