Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine uses all-natural substances like platelet-rich plasma to replace tissues damaged by disease or injury. Specifically, it triggers your body’s natural healing process, eliminating the need for more invasive measures of care like surgery. 

Because regenerative medicine uses naturally occurring substances, there’s little risk of complications. In addition, treatment is quick, pain-free, and results in lasting outcomes.

What are the types of regenerative medicine?

At Bay Breeze Foot & Ankle Specialists, Dr. Aiken offers several types of regenerative medicine, including:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP uses natural growth factors in your blood, called platelets, to promote healing and healthy circulation. By injecting a PRP solution into an injured or diseased joint, it’s possible to relieve swelling and inflammation, while reducing the risk of additional complications.

Prolo Therapy

Prolotherapy entails the use of varying concentrations of sterile dextrose solutions which in turn cause the formation of collagen tissue in areas of ligament or tendon damage. This helps to stabilize and regenerate areas of soft tissue injury

Erchonia® cold laser therapy

Erchonia cold laser therapy uses low-level light energy to relieve swelling and inflammation caused by foot and ankle problems like plantar fasciitis or a fracture. Treatment is entirely noninvasive and provides lasting results.

Does regenerative medicine take more than one appointment?

Yes. The majority of regenerative medicine treatments are cumulative, meaning the results they provide improve over time. To ensure a positive outcome, Dr. Aiken typically recommends a series of at least three appointments spaced several weeks or months apart.

What type of regenerative medicine will benefit me most?

To determine the type of regenerative medicine that will benefit you most, Dr. Aiken reviews your medical history, conducts a comprehensive exam, and asks about your symptoms. After making an official diagnosis, he can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
