Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine at Medical Wellness Group uses advanced treatments to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. 

The practice offers stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to regenerate new cell growth and help you avoid invasive procedures and addictive pain medicines.

What is regenerative medicine used for?

Regenerative medicine helps treat numerous injuries and diseases. It can:

  • Regenerate new tissues
  • Reduce chronic pain
  • Heal injuries
  • Stimulate new hair growth
  • Optimize anti-aging 
  • Improve range of motion
  • Decrease inflammation

Stem cells and PRP enhance your body’s ability to regenerate new cells, speed up healing, and diminish discomfort associated with arthritis, sports injuries, falls, joint damage, and other injuries.

What should I expect during treatment?

During regenerative medicine treatments at Medical Wellness Group, your specialist might recommend:

Stem cells

During stem cell injections, your provider injects stem cells from certain parts of your body, or donated stem cells from umbilical cord tissue, into painful or injured areas of your body. They first numb the treatment area, so you don’t feel discomfort during needle insertion.


With PRP injections, your provider first takes a sample of blood from your arm. They spin it in a centrifuge to isolate platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood. PRP contains growth factors that contribute to your body’s natural healing response. Your specialist then injections PRP back into your body at sites of pain or injuries.

What happens after a regenerative medicine treatment?

After regenerative medicine injections, you might experience some swelling, soreness, or redness at the treatment site. These side effects are temporary and soon subside, but you can apply ice to the area as needed for relief.

You may not notice improvements right away, but over time, you can experience enhanced healing and less pain in problem areas. 

Your provider might recommend a series of regenerative medicine treatments, or stem cells plus PRP injections, to help you achieve the most desirable outcome.
