PRP and You: What to Know About Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine has a long history. Aristotle first discovered that living cells can regenerate when he observed a lizard’s tail regrow. Thousands of years later, regenerative medicine is now an effective treatment for disease and injury. 

But what makes regenerative medicine so effective? We’re here to answer your questions. 

Dr. John Bassell and our team at Nebben Physical Medicine in Clarksville, Tennessee, are dedicated to providing our patients with the best care and educating them on their treatment options. Here’s what you should know about regenerative medicine

An overview of regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine is an umbrella term for natural treatments that regenerate cells in your body to repair damaged tissue, treat disease, and ultimately relieve pain. 

PRP injections

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is becoming increasingly popular with everyone from athletes and celebrities to individuals with chronic pain. 

PRP uses the growth and healing substances in your own blood to repair and regenerate cells and tissue. 

We take a small sample of your blood and place it in a centrifuge. This machine spins your blood quickly, separating the platelets and plasma from the rest of your blood. 

Platelets and plasma play a large role in your body’s response to injury and damage. They help clot blood, stimulate cell growth, and reduce inflammation. Injecting PRP into your body stimulates and aids your body’s natural healing process, resulting in significantly less pain. 

How regenerative medicine can help you

Regenerative medicine isn’t for everyone, but it can address a wide variety of health issues. 

At Nebben Physical Medicine, we conduct a thorough review of your symptoms and medical history before recommending regenerative medicine. We may suggest routine blood and imaging tests to help us get a better idea of what’s causing your pain. 

Regenerative medicine is an effective therapy if you’re suffering from conditions like:

Our regenerative medicine treatments can relieve your pain without relying on prescription medication or invasive surgery. We offer other holistic treatments like K-laser therapy, chiropractic care, and physical therapy if regenerative medicine isn’t right for you. 

If you’re looking to get rid of your pain, repair your damaged tissues, and heal your nagging injuries, look no further than our regenerative medicine treatments. Call our office or request an appointment online to get started on your journey to a pain-free life.
