A new form of treatment for many painful conditions is regenerative therapy or regenerative medicine, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow aspirate (BMA). Regenerative therapy uses the body’s own tissues and healing factors to improve pain, function, and quality of life. Advances in the technology and understanding of how the body heals itself, as well as advances in areas of cell biology, have created new opportunities for medical care through breakthroughs in the way these components all work together. There are many who claim that these treatments are miracle workers and solve a multitude of painful conditions. The physicians at Cedar Hill Pain and Rehab believe in honestly educating patients how these treatments work. For instance, though there are encouraging studies which show improvement in pain and function following treatment, there are also studies which show BMA and PRP perform no better than placebo. Our doctors will take the time to educate patients honestly.
