Regenerative medicine involves using your body to heal itself, using naturally occurring cells and specialized fluids. Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine provides patients with several options including Wharton’s Jelly and amniotic allograft treatments for regenerative healing purposes. These treatment options are made up of hyaluronic acid, regenerative mesenchymal stem cells, and cytokines, which are all powerful growth factors that help accelerate regeneration of your body’s tissues. Once you’re injected with a regenerative product, the growth factors start to work, triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks, cells grow and divide, forming new tissues. This helps heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through an invasive surgical procedure.

Which areas can be treated with regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine utilizing Wharton’s Jelly or amniotic allograft treatments are beneficial for helping many types of bone and soft tissue problems, including arthritis. The injections can help heal your:

  • Neck
  • Spine
  • Knees
  • Shoulders
  • Hips
  • Elbows
  • Ankles
  • Wrists

How long does regenerative medicine take to work?

Because you are kickstarting your body into making new tissues, it does take some time for your regenerative medicine treatment to start working. Some patients report a dramatic reduction in their pain levels in as little as two months, while others experience improvement within a few weeks. It just depends on how quickly your body responds to the treatment.

Will I need more than one treatment with regenerative medicine?

Possibly, depending on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury. If you don’t see any improvement after several months, or if you don’t notice significant improvement, your doctor might suggest repeating the treatment, just to further boost healthy tissue growth. They can let you know what to expect during your consultation and assessment appointment.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is your blood plasma that has been enriched with your own concentrated platelets. This concentrated PRP contains several different growth factors that stimulate healing of bone, and joint cartilage, tendons and other structures.

The good news is that the cells responsible for healing injuries is already contained in your blood! Platelets also contain proteins called growth factors, which play an important role in the process of healing of injuries.

With Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, our skilled providers inject cells that stimulate inflammation, which alerts the body to take notice of the injured tissue again so it can assist in healing the damaged tissue once again. PRP can accelerate the healing process of injures such as plantar fasciitis, tendon, ligament, bone and cartilage injuries. Platelet rich plasma has gained substantial popularity in the arena of sports medicine and orthopedics for its ability to enhance healing of both chronic and acute ailments. It can many times augment or even replace surgery, and many patients have decreased pain after the first injection. You no longer must be a professional athlete to receive this type of therapy.

Headaches & Migraines

When patients come to us for help with headaches/migraines, we have one main goal. That is to help them achieve lasting pain relief naturally and drug-free. By doing so, we spare them from the need for medications to dull their pain. Our staff takes an intense interest in finding the correct cause of each patient’s headache and providing the right treatment so they can enjoy life headache-free.

Much success has been had providing relief from the following types of headaches:

Tension headaches

Tension headaches often have their source right next door—in the neck. Persistently tense muscles, poor posture and accumulated trauma that damages the alignment or free movement of the neck can all cause headaches.

Migraine headaches

Migraines are mental, physical and emotional ordeals that can last from a few hours to a few days. These headaches are marked by severe throbbing or pulsing pain and may include nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, visual changes, fluctuating moods and weakness.

The solution for headaches depends on what our examination finds. Here at Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine, we work closely with every patient to look at any factors that could be triggering their pain. Then we can develop the right treatment plan to alleviate the cause.

Treatment Options for Headache Relief:

Chiropractic Adjustments

For a back to be pain-free, the vertebrae must be flexible and in good alignment. Gentle chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment and mobility to each joint and correct the curve of the spine.

Massage Therapy

Our therapists utilize numerous techniques including Swedish/relaxation, auto accident recovery, sports injury and deep tissue massage tailored to your specific condition.

Class IV Laser

Our Class IV laser sends healing wavelengths of light deep into the body to accelerate healing and relieve pain symptoms. In just a few treatments, patients often see a significant change and reduction in their inflammation.

Physical Rehabilitation

Using our extensive training and experience, we plan physical rehab programs for many of our patients. Stretching and strengthening motions are vital additions to a recovery plan.

At Valleyview Injury + Physical Medicine, we have a wealth of state-of-the-art medical technology available that enables our patients to resume active, pain-free lives. That is what we are here for and why we welcome you to our integrated medical center.

Knee Pain

The best knee pain relief starts with finding and addressing the actual cause of your knee pain. Consider some of the common knee pain causes. Do you have cartilage damage, a tear in your meniscus or ACL, or is osteoarthritis making its way into your knee? Regardless of the source of the pain we our goal is to find the real issue and create a customized regenerative medicine treatment program to get you out of pain and back to living your life without the need for surgery or drugs.

We have many treatment options that have proven effective in relieving knee pain, including, but not limited to, regenerative medicine, joint injections, PRP, bracing and procedures containing stem cells.

These treatment options have helped many patients recover mobility without surgery or drugs, even after they have suffered for many years.

Regenerative Cell Therapy for Knee Pain Relief

Regenerative medicine is a preferred non-surgical and much less invasive option available for those suffering many types of knee pain. The reason regenerative cell treatments are so effective when used for knee repair is that they can grow into the exact type of cell needed to heal and rebuild after an injury or long term degeneration. The presence of these cells also reduces inflammation and can halt the advance of knee arthritis or osteoarthritis. Your own body grows stem cells but the older you get, the fewer of these cells you generate, and the less effective your natural stem cells become.

To provide regenerative cell therapy for knee pain, we utilize what we feel are the most powerfully healing cells available, those present in amniotic fluid or umbilical cord tissue called mesenchymal stem cells. Carefully harvested, these cells bring the power of regeneration to aching knees. Your body can use these cells to repair torn cartilage, heal strained ligaments and regrow or repair the damaged joint space, cartilage and synovial fluid.

Additional Treatment Options for Knee Pain:

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The platelets in your own blood are activated whenever your body signals that it has been injured. We concentrate the platelets from a small sample of your blood and inject these directly into the painful joint. These cells then aid with needed cartilage and tissue regeneration. PRP is often administered in conjunction with stem cell therapy for the most effective results.

Class IV Laser

When an injured area is swollen, it’s harder for cleansing and healing fluids to pass through the area. Our Class VI laser treatment reduces swelling and so accelerates healing and pain relief.

Joint Fluid Supplementation

Knee osteoarthritis reduces that joint’s supply of lubricant, increasing pain and making it harder to move the joint. We use hyaluronan injections to restore lubrication and shock absorption to knee joints

Exercise and Lifestyle Counseling

Many people lack knowledge in the types of exercise and general activity that help strengthen muscles around the knee and prevent further damage. Educating them on how to sit, stand and move about is an integral part of preserving improvements. Dietary changes can help them reduce overall inflammation and pain.
