Regenerative Therapy Q & A

What is regenerative therapy?

Regenerative therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, is a holistic treatment for pain and injuries. The procedure uses stem cells, which are special cells that can regenerate into other types of cells within your body to enhance healing and repair tissue damage. It’s an all-natural treatment that can produce dramatic results.

What are the benefits of regenerative therapy?

Some of the numerous benefits you can experience after regenerative therapy with Tri-Town Podiatry include less discomfort and accelerated healing of:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Fractures
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Inflammation
  • Foot ulcers
  • Ankle instability
  • Tendon damage
  • Other foot or ankle injuries

Choosing regenerative therapy might mean you can eliminate the need for pain medicine or invasive surgical procedures.

Is regenerative therapy right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for regenerative therapy, your Tri-Town Podiatry specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history. They examine your feet and ankles and might recommend you undergo blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to diagnose your condition.

What happens during the procedure?

Your podiatrist may extract stem cells from bone marrow within your hip bone. They place the bone marrow in a centrifuge to isolate stem cells from the rest of the sample. Tri-Town Podiatry specialists may also use donated healthy stem cells from a lab.

Using a very fine needle, your provider injects stem cells into painful or injured parts of your foot or ankle. They first numb the treatment area so you can avoid discomfort. The procedure is fast and virtually painless, yet highly effective.

What should I expect after regenerative therapy?

There’s no downtime after undergoing stem cell therapy, so you can resume a normal routine right away. Your podiatrist might recommend multiple regenerative therapy treatments with periodic maintenance injections to achieve the best outcome.

They may combine stem cells with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), physical therapy, bracing, minor surgical procedures, or other treatments to optimize healing.

Don’t live with a nonhealing injury or chronic pain when simple, holistic treatments are within reach. Schedule an appointment with Tri-Town Podiatry by phone or online to find out if regenerative therapy is right for you.
