What are regenerative injectable treatments?
Regenerative injectable treatments are an outpatient procedure used to ease pain and encourage healing. During a regenerative injectable appointment, your Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine provider administers a series of injections into a damaged or diseased joint or area of soft tissue.
The injection contains Wharton’s jelly, a gelatinous substance that contains blood and natural growth factors. Once these growth factors enter your body, they trigger your body’s healing process. Over time, this limits pain, eases swelling, and encourages mobility.
What conditions can benefit from regenerative injectables?
Regenerative injectables are incredibly versatile. At Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine, the team uses regenerative injectables to address several conditions, including:
- Bone-on-Bone Degeneration
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Work injuries
- Herniated discs
You might also benefit from regenerative injectables if you have heart disease, cancer, or a spinal cord injury.
Am I a good candidate for regenerative injectables?
To determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative injectables, your Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you questions about your lifestyle and symptoms.
If these measures don’t provide enough information, your provider might also recommend laboratory testing or diagnostic imaging, such as an X-ray or MRI to pinpoint the source of your discomfort.
If the pain you experience is caused by an injury or degenerative disease, you’re probably a good candidate for treatment. The number of injections you’ll need depends on your individual goals for treatment.
What happens during a regenerative injectable appointment?
The team at Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine performs regenerative injectable treatment as an outpatient procedure. On the day of your appointment, you change into a gown and lie down on an exam table.
Next, your Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine provider cleans the injection site with an antiseptic solution. Afterward, they carefully administer one or several injections of Wharton’s jelly. Once the Wharton’s jelly enters your body, it identifies and relieves inflammation. This eases pain and improves mobility.
Regenerative injectables don’t require stitches or sutures. Following your appointment, there’s no downtime, meaning you can return to normal activities right away.
