Regenerative Medicine: Giving Hopes
The doctors at Terrapin Care Center have experience with regenerative medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering hope for individuals with conditions that previously were beyond repair. We give hope to those who truly need it.
Our doctors are keeping up with extensive research in this field of physical medicine that aims to change the current evidence-based and palliative treatments that simply can’t keep up with patients’ needs, especially an aging population that is living well into their 90s. Currently, clinicians can only manage symptoms using medications or devices, such as foot orthotics and medical braces. With advances in stem cell research, cell biology, and immunology, more permanent healing options are on the horizon. We are excited for the future!
Here at Terrapin Care Center, we take great interest in this field of study. New opportunities are being unlocked every day that further hone existing regenerative therapies and develop new ones. As part of physical medicine in Silver Spring MD, we offer insight into state of the art approaches to restoration and rejuvenation.
This evolving branch of medicine includes tissue engineering as well as self-healing, which involves the body using its own systems to recreate cells and rebuild tissues and organs. Treatments focus on cures rather than treatments for chronic diseases. As you may already know, here at Terrapin Care Center, our goal is to help patients avoid unnecessary surgery and stay off drugs when it comes to their chronic pain management in Silver Spring MD.
Among the advanced treatments we offer is PRP, or “platelet-rich plasma,” a revolutionary new treatment for chronic sports and musculoskeletal injuries. Platelets are most often associated with clot formation. But they also play an important role in injury healing. Human platelets are naturally extremely rich in connective tissue growth factors. Injecting a concentrated solution of these growth factors into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints stimulates repair by stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
