Regenerative medicine launches your body’s natural healing processes, while providing resources your innate healing mechanisms can use to help you heal faster. Pittsburgh East Health Center offers this treatment path to patients who need to heal in targeted areas. And, as you can imagine, that means regenerative medicine is a useful treatment for people with a wide range of conditions.
Pittsburgh East Health Center uses regenerative therapy to help people with:
Whether your pain is caused by another health condition (like arthritis) or was triggered by a certain event (like a car accident or workplace injury), the caring team at Pittsburgh East Health Center offers regenerative medicine to alleviate it.
During regenerative medicine treatment, your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider injects medicine into targeted locations on your body. If you have knee pain, for example, you receive the injections in your knee. If you’re living with neuropathy, the injection locations are strategically placed to best address your symptoms.
To get the PRP for your injection, your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider takes a small sample of your own blood. Then, using a centrifuge, they separate out the platelets. Your body sends these platelets to injury sites anytime you’re wounded to trigger your healing processes. By injecting PRP where you experience pain, your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider jump-starts healing in the treated area.
