Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

This fast growing, highly effective treatment option utilizes various treatments that may include human cellular tissue products and growth factors including, umbilical allografts, amniotic fluid, and platelet rich plasma or PRP treatments to heal and restore your body to a healthy level. The very name indicates that regenerative medicine therapies help your body regenerate tissue, bone, discs, cartilage, and cells. This treatment option provides relief from injuries and chronic pain. Regenerative medicine is a natural solution that even helps combat the effects of aging.

Our team of doctors will design a customized treatment program just for you. A custom program is far more effective than a "one size fits all" treatment option. Our solutions are designed to help your body truly heal rather than simply mask your symptoms.


Is Biological Allograft Therapy Regenerative Medicine?

Biological Allograft Therapy is not regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine helps your body restore itself to a healthy state naturally. Patients in pain, those with wounds that won’t heal or with damaged cartilage, muscle or ligaments may return to normal life in a short time. Biological Allograft Therapy may also help arthritic patients find relief from the swelling, pain and lack of mobility resulting from this condition. It will even help those that have had recent surgery heal more quickly and reduce scar tissue.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Biological Allograft Therapy?

  • Joint pain

  • Knee pain

  • Hip pain

  • Back pain

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Damaged or degraded cartilage

  • Torn ligaments

  • Arthritis

  • Elbow pain - tendonitis

  • Neuropathy

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Disc problems

  • Bone issues

  • More


What are the Most Effective Biological Allograft Therapies?

There are many sources for human cellular tissue products. However, we feel that the human cellular tissue products obtained from umbilical cords offer the most potent and effective healing power. Why are young human cellular tissue products more favorable than those in our bodies naturally? Our body's own human cellular tissue products age as we age and are therefore less effective year after year. The human cellular tissue products harvested from the umbilical cord the day of birth show an extremely high rate of replication. To illustrate this, simply think about how much more quickly children heal from injuries than do elder people. This is due to their young, healthy human cellular tissue.

When introduced into an injured or damaged area, human cellular tissue products go to work to accelerate and enhance your natural healing process. They are reported to help your body heal muscle tears, ligament or tendon damage, strengthen degenerating bones and cartilage and more. human cellular tissue products are undifferentiated cells meaning that they transform into the exact cells your body needs to heal itself. They even have the ability to help with the inflammation and pain that accompanies arthritis and other conditions.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The most active healing cells contained in your blood are called platelets. When your body signals that it is injured, platelets are attracted to the injured area. They then go to work repairing that area. To focus this healing power intensively on your injury, we extract a small quantity of your blood. The next step is to process it and isolate the platelets in clear plasma. This platelet-rich plasma will then be returned to your injured area. PRP treatments of knees, shoulders, muscles, tendons and other parts of the body have proven remarkably effective.

What Results can I Expect from Regenerative Medicine

Most often the fastest relief after a regenerative medicine treatment comes from the anti inflammatory properties of the injection. The longer term results are the result of your body healing itself and restoring the damaged tissue. These procedures regenerate cells, tissue, bone, ligaments, tendons muscles, cartilage, and more. Stem cell treatments are found to help those with heart conditions, alopecia, peripheral neuropathy, skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, etc. Choosing regenerative medical treatment options and regenerative cell therapy helps your body tap into its youthful healing potential. You can expect hair restoration, younger looking skin and improved quality of life.

Regenerative Medicine Treatment Options for Sexual Enhancement

O-Shots®: This life changing, revolutionary use of regenerative medicine utilizes platelet-rich plasma to improve vaginal tone and sexual response. By injecting PRP into anesthetized genital areas, regeneration of tissue in the area is triggered. These PRP injections increase blood flow to these sensitive and responsive tissues. Improved sensation during sexual activity is the result, along with a reduction of urinary incontinence and other symptoms.

P-Shots®: The P-shot, or Priapus Shot, offers similar benefits for men. In this case, the patient’s own platelets are injected into numbed areas of the penis. Growth factors that are abundant in platelet-rich plasma rejuvenate the tissues in the penis involved in creating erections and responding to stimuli. Resulting in more satisfying sexual experiences.

Medical science has moved beyond simply covering up a patient’s problems with steroids, painkillers and muscle-relaxing drugs and has embraced regenerative medicine and regenerative cell therapy as better solutions to heal pain and injuries. At Life Health & Wellness, we offer cutting-edge regenerative medicine and stem cell treatments that rebuild, regenerate and restore so we can return you to the pain-free and active life you enjoy leading.

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet rich plasma is a treatment option that utilizes concentrated platelets from your own blood. The platelets in your blood have a significant ability to help your body heal itself naturally.

Treatment with platelet rich plasma injections may be accompanied by joint fluid therapy, regenerative medicine, or human cellular tissue products. Therefore, we will design a fully custom PRP therapy plan to return you to health, happiness and youthful vigor.


How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Work?

We will draw a small amount of blood, spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma. The resulting golden fluid is rich with platelets. We inject the fluid directly into the part of your body that needs repair. As a result, all healing factors present in your PRP will assist your body in returning to a healthy state.

PRP Is An Effective Treatment Option For:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries or pain

  • Sprains

  • Tears of ligaments, tendons, and muscles

  • Tendonitis

  • Restoring skin to more youthful appearance

  • Sexual enhancement

  • Healing wounds

  • Pain relief

  • Attracting stem cells to areas of injury

  • Hair restoration and growth

  • Aesthetic procedures


When Can I Expect Results From PRP Treatments?

Platelet rich plasma therapy results vary depending on the injury that we are treating, or the aesthetic procedure performed. So, results will also depend on your body’s reaction to the treatment. Most patients suffering from an injury will see pain relief, due to the reduction of inflammation, rather quickly.

Aesthetic results begin to become noticeable at 2 weeks. Within 3 to 6 months from your initial treatment, the results will be measurable.


PRP Injections For Sports Injuries

PRP injections are healing tools utilized by some of the world’s top athletes. To keep these athletes on the playing field, their own PRP is injected directly into an injured joint. It can also be injected into injured tendons or ligaments. Instead of months of downtime, these top athletes can return to play in just weeks. Now, you have access to this same regenerative treatment and PRP injection therapy right here, near you in Greenville.
