If you suffer from pain or discomfort in your joints, tendons, or muscles, regenerative injection therapy is a chance for long-lasting relief. Regenerative injection therapy utilizes PRP and stem cell therapy to stimulate healing in arthritic joints, or areas of your body with chronic pain.
What is regenerative injection therapy?
Regenerative injection therapy involves various injections, each with specific properties to activate your own natural healing abilities. This is achieved through the use of PRP injections to increase the amount of growth factors in the area to trigger natural healing, activate stem cells to regenerate tissue as well as to stimulate the production of collagen to increase the ability of cells to restore. These injections target arthritis and body areas that suffer from chronic pain. Some of the conditions that can be treated with regenerative injection therapy include:
- Joint pain and joint injuries
- Degenerative disc diseases
- Injuries to the cartilage
- Torn ligaments
What are some of the benefits of regenerative injection therapy?
These injections offer opportunities to stimulate natural healing in painful areas of the body and to treat a wide range of conditions. Some of the benefits include the following:
- Treatment of degenerative conditions
- Greater ease of motion
- Potential alternative to using pain medication
- Alleviating conditions such as arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Aiding in the healing of musculoskeletal disorders
- Reduced pain and inflammation in the joints
- Allows an opportunity for natural healing before considering invasive alternatives such as surgery
Platelet rich plasma or PRP
Platelet rich plasma injections involve taking a small sample of your blood and extracting the platelets from the sample. This is achieved through the use of a centrifuge to separate out the PRP from the other cells in the blood. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate various aspects of healing in your body. Platelets are the cells responsible for healing wounds and the growth factors associated with that healing have applications throughout your body. PRP can be used to stimulate healing in such tissues as:
- Ligaments and tendons

Stem cells are being used more and more to treat joint degeneration and arthritis as stem cells can help by developing new tissue and reducing inflammation. Stems cells can also produce proteins that reduce the speed of degeneration in the treated tissues. Stem cells can be extracted from your bone marrow or fat tissue and then injected into the treatment area. Over the course of the treatments, pain tends to ease, and natural regeneration is achieved.
Am I a candidate for regenerative injection therapy?
Many people can be considered candidates for this therapy as it is non-invasive and involves injections that either utilize your own tissues, which simply becomes oxygen in the body. Ideal candidates are suffering from chronic pain, degenerative conditions or other diseases that can be treated by regenerative injection therapy. The best way to determine whether or not regenerative injection therapy is right for you is to come in for a consultation at Angel Longevity.
When will I see the results and how many treatments will I need?
In many cases, one treatment is necessary to experience results. The conditions that can be treated are broad and the injections vary in their potency and, in the case of stem cells and PRP, are dependent on your own tissues, age, and genetics which means that each case will be unique. During your consultation at Angel Longevity a treatment plan can be created that is completely tailored to your exact condition to be treated.
