The term regenerative medicine refers to practices and applications that replace or regenerate human organs, tissues, or cells. Once firmly in the realm of science fiction, regenerative medicine is a viable treatment option today.
Stem cells are at the heart of regenerative medicine. These cells are only in certain tissues of the human body, including your bone marrow, blood vessels, fat, skin, brain, and liver. Another potent source of stem cells is umbilical cord blood.
Researchers have not identified safe and effective ways of extracting stem cells from every potential source. However, extracted fat and bone marrow stem cells currently have many applications.
Stem cell injections can prompt your body to create new cells to repair damage or degeneration. This approach is often put to use when treating joint pain. Because stem cells originate from your body, there is a very low risk of complications, making this a less invasive yet powerful treatment option.
Another cornerstone of regenerative medicine is platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
How is PRP used in regenerative medicine treatments?
Platelet-rich plasma is one exciting area of regenerative medicine available at The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center. This treatment uses a solution made from your blood to boost cellular turnover and speed healing.
PRP is a concentrated preparation of the platelets and plasma within your blood. Platelets enable blood clotting and contain growth factors. When injected into the body, PRP can dramatically improve your innate healing abilities and provide pain relief.
PRP is currently used to treat a wide range of joint, muscle, and bone conditions. While this approach is not the right choice for severely damaged joints, it can make a big difference if introduced when joint damage is relatively minor, and new cell production can strengthen or repair existing tissues.
What is the future of regenerative medicine?
Did you know that transplants of corneas, bone, and soft tissues have been in use since the early 20th century? The 1960s brought transplantation of the liver, pancreas, kidneys, and heart.
Today, advancements in tissue-engineered organs are on the verge of transforming organ donor waiting lists. Future regenerative medicine applications might include a cure for diabetes, better treatment for heart disease, and eventually the ability to simply replace worn out or diseased body parts, including skin, with new, fully functioning engineered tissue.

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a preparation of your blood that can speed healing and promote swift cellular turnover. It’s also among the most exciting areas of medical practice today and is the focus of ongoing research.
Along with red and white blood cells, your platelets are one of the solid components of your blood. Plasma is the primary liquid component.
Platelets work to enable blood clotting. They also contain a wealth of growth factors, special proteins that help wounds heal faster.
Platelet-rich plasma is created by drawing a small sample of your blood and spinning it in a medical centrifuge. That spinning separates the solids from the liquids, making it easier to remove the platelets and place them into the newly cleared plasma.
Once prepared, PRP is drawn into syringes and injected into targeted areas of your body.
What issues can PRP injections treat?
PRP can stimulate your natural healing function and provide pain relief in many areas of your body, but certain tissues respond to this approach better than others. The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center may inject PRP into:
Because damage to these joint components is so common, PRP injections are becoming a preferred approach. One benefit of this treatment option is the chance to achieve healing without having to rely on pharmaceutical pain medications.
Another benefit is the incredibly low risk of side effects. Because your blood produces the components of PRP injections, your body won’t reject treatment.
Can PRP be incorporated into other treatment options?
Yet another benefit of PRP therapy is the ability to integrate these injections into other treatment options. Many men and women visit The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center for PRP injections prior to beginning a course of physical therapy. The ability to hasten healing can help you get the most from physical therapy with less pain.
You can also use platelet-rich plasma in conjunction with Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy. Both options address inflammation and healing, and together they can pack a powerful punch.
If you have questions about the role the platelet-rich plasma can play in your treatment path, visit The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center for a one-on-one consultation. Scheduling takes just moments online or over the phone, so don’t delay.
MLS Laser Therapy
If acute or chronic pain is interfering with your normal daily routines, Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy offers a path toward relief. This advanced treatment is one of many services available from The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center, serving the community of Voorhees, New Jersey. If you’d like to explore MLS Laser Therapy in more detail, call or schedule an appointment online at your earliest convenience.
Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy is an innovative use of light energy to treat pain and inflammation. The process uses two wavelengths of light, 808nm and 905nm. This allows for deep tissue penetration with a very low risk of thermal damage.
The laser delivers energy in synchronized pulses that allow your The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center practitioner to precisely control your treatment to ensure you receive the proper therapeutic dose. That level of accuracy allows for consistent and repeatable results.
What conditions can MLS Laser Therapy treat?
MLS Laser Therapy is a versatile tool that can address a wide range of concerns, acute or chronic. Some of the medical issues where MLS Laser Therapy has shown great results include:
- Wound healing
- Post-surgical swelling
- Plantar fasciitis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Tendon and ligament tears
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Back pain
- Joint pain
In many cases, men and women who’ve been living with chronic pain for years are able to find lasting relief through MLS Laser Therapy.
What are MLS Laser Therapy sessions like?
MLS Laser Therapy is not a painful process and requires no anesthesia or advance preparation; it is a safe and effective treatment option. SM Medical Group @ The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center uses the M6 therapy laser, a treatment platform that can treat a wide area of your body at once, reducing your overall treatment time and allowing the targeting of multiple tissues in each session.
There is no pain during treatment because the system does not allow thermal tissue damage. You may notice a mild warming sensation in the treatment area, which is a sign the laser is stimulating your tissues as intended.
How many MLS Laser Therapy treatments do I need for pain relief?
Most men and women need a series of 6-10 MLS Laser Therapy treatments, spaced out in a schedule of 2-3 sessions per week over the course of 2-3 weeks. Once treatment is complete, most patients achieve lasting pain relief without additional sessions. However, if your pain stems from degenerative conditions like arthritis, you may need to visit SM Medical Group @ The Regenerative Health & Wellness Center for periodic maintenance sessions to keep inflammation in check.
Another benefit of MLS Laser Therapy is the ability to increase your physical activity once your pain is under control. That can play a significant role in preventing pain and boosting your overall health and wellness, making this therapeutic approach a great investment.

Amniotic Fluid & Membrane Injections
Amniotic fluid is derived from a healthy mom, screened to be virus and infection free, who delivers a healthy baby through a planned cesarean section. She donates her placenta to an FDA regulated lab where the amniotic tissues are harvested and used for advanced wound healing and to facilitate healing in surgery.
Amniotic fluid injections are a safe, non-steroidal alternative to surgery.
Amniotic fluid injections are all natural and drug-free and contain more than 200 growth factors.
Amniotic fluid injections provide reduced recovery time for injuries and surgery.
