The expert physicians at Spine Center and Orthopedic Rehabilitation of Englewood, PC, in Englewood, New Jersey, harness your own body’s healing processes to create powerful regenerative medicine that doesn’t just mask the source of your pain but actually repairs it. Heal pain and injuries faster with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), alpha- 2 macroglobulin (A2M), stem-cell, and Tenex therapies by calling Spine Center and Orthopedic Rehabilitation of Englewood, PC, or booking online.
Regenerative medicine consists of powerful new therapies — such as PRP with or without A2M, stem-cell injections, and Tenex — that help your body repair and even regenerate damaged tissue to heal the underlying cause of your pain and dysfunction. With the aid of regenerative medicine, your body produces new collagen, elastin, fibrins, and growth factors needed to create stronger, healthier, more resilient skin, tendons, muscles, and cartilage.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated serum made from the healing platelets found in your own blood, plus a small amount of the liquid portion (i.e., plasma) of your blood. Your doctor creates the serum by withdrawing a small amount of blood from your arm, and spinning it in a sterile centrifuge to isolate the protein- and growth factor-rich platelets.
Your doctor injects the PRP into damaged tissue to promote repair and regeneration in conditions like arthritis and tendinitis. If you have arthritis, you can boost the power of PRP by adding A2M injections.
Alpha- 2 macroglobulin (A2M) is one of the most important proteins in your plasma. After your doctor isolates this protein and injects it into your cartilage, it deactivates proteinases that break down your cartilage cells. If you have arthritis, your doctor advises adding A2M to PRP to preserve the health and mobility of your joint.
Your body is composed of differentiated (i.e., specific) cells, such as skin cells and bone cells. But it’s also filled with undifferentiated cells, called stem cells, that can turn into many other types of cells, depending on your body’s needs.
Most stem cells are located in your hip bone marrow and in fat. Your doctor may extract stem cells from those areas to create a healing serum that they then inject directly into the area of injury or pain. They also offer donated, purified amniotic stem cells.
Tenex is an advanced, extremely safe, ultrasound-guided form of tenotomy, which is the process of cutting and removing diseased portions of a tendon through a tiny, hollow needle. The Spine Center and Orthopedic Rehabilitation of Englewood, PC, doctors use Tenex to resolve and heal tendinopathies, including tennis elbow and runner’s knee. Tenex has an 80-90% success rate.
