Our bodies have a remarkable ability to regenerate. Each cell, every molecule in our body is composed of new material replacing what was present a decade ago, and will be replaced by our own bodies’ natural cell turnover again during the next days, months or years.
Injuries and degenerative changes to knees, shoulders and other joints do have the potential to repair themselves under the guidance of platelet rich plasma (derived from the clear yellow fluid you may have seen in tubes of your blood when you have had labs drawn). These can direct plastic cellular factors found abundantly in abdominal adipose (fat).
When concentrated, these cells from your own body have the potential to stimulate regeneration of cartilage, tendons, bone and new blood vessels.
For many, this may provide an exciting therapeutic alternative to surgery, chronic pain, daily medication or disability. Conditions that may benefit from treatment include meniscus and rotator cuff tears, arthritis (including “bone on bone” degeneration), incomplete tendon injuries and other sports injuries that often plague our active Tahoe population.
