What Is Regenerative Medicine?

 

At Vida Integrated Health, Regenerative Medicine is focused on developing and applying Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) to heal cells and tissues and restore function lost due to aging, disease, damage or defects.

We know that where you choose to get a medical procedure performed is a big decision, and when choosing a clinic, you want assurance you will have the safest and best outcome possible. This is why at Vida Functional Medicine we use a four-step approach to our Regenerative Medicine Program.

Step 1: Consult with your Functional Medicine provider and ensure you are a good candidate for your procedure of interest.

Step 2: Get as healthy as possible prior to your procedure. This step is unconventional but we consider ESSENTIAL. Platelet-rich plasma, a critical part of most of our Regenerative Medicine procedures, is autologous meaning it comes from your OWN blood. The cells are only as healthy as the person making them. While we can’t do anything about age, we can optimize areas like inflammation, blood flow, and nutrient status. This process may require only a few weeks of work or it may entail several months. Our goal is never to become an assembly-line procedure clinic. We’d prefer a slow and steady approach to maximize positive outcomes.

Step: 3: Schedule and complete your procedure.

Step 4: Begin rehabilitation treatment at Vida Integrative Health with our physical therapy team to enhance your body’s ability to effectively reconstruct and restore the tissue with the newly available PRP it has recently received.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) For Musculoskeletal

PRP with Ultrasound
Trigger Point Injections

After a simple blood draw, your own blood is centrifuged to isolate your platelets – this is platelet-rich plasma. Then the PRP is injected under ultrasound guidance back into a joint, tendon, or muscle that stimulates growth of healthy cells and strengthening the injured area of the body.

A trigger point is a sensitive or tender area in the muscle or fascia. A way to relieve a trigger point is with a trigger point injection, which is an injection of local anesthetic such as lidocaine, plus a corticosteroid directly into the trigger point.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) For Longevity Medicine and Sexual Health

Skin Tightening
Fascial Aesthetics
Female PRP Shot
Male PRP Shot

Platelet rich plasma is a natural compound derived from your blood. When combined in a special tube that contains compounds essential for collagen synthesis, wound healing and skin regeneration, it reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, while improving skin texture and overall tone.

Platelets are known to contain growth factors and cytokines which can promote healing and tissue regeneration. When applied to the skin, PRP can help improve collagen production, reduce inflammation, and encourage cell turnover.

The Female PRP Shot for Orgasm Enhancement is a nonsurgical procedure that uses a woman’s own tissue and PRP to enhance sexual pleasure. The procedure activates localized healing processes that accentuate clitoral function, lubrication response, and orgasmic intensification.

The Male PRP Shot is a revolutionary treatment for erectile dysfunction and other men’s sexual health issues. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses platelet rich plasma derived from the patient’s own blood to stimulate long-lasting erectile function, increased sensation and improved erections.

Our Functional Medicine Physicians are here to offer a variety of Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments for sprains, strains, fractures, and tears of the cartilage and muscles and use multiple forms of therapy to regenerate (regrow) tissue after you have experienced damage to a part of your musculoskeletal system.

PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP TREATMENT) INJECTIONS

Blood is drawn from the patient and concentrated platelets and growth factors are separated and then injected into the injured area using ultrasound guidance to ensure the PRP is placed into the injured tendon or joint.

What are the benefits?

 

  • Initiates tissue repair by activating growth factors and adhesion proteins
  • Promotes synthesis of new connective tissue
  • Supports revascularization (improving blood flow)
PRP treatment is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, including:
  • Osteoarthritis: injections can be used to reduce pain and inflammation in the knee, hip, and other joints affected by osteoarthritis.
  • Tendinitis:  can be used to treat tendinitis in the shoulder, elbow, knee, and other areas.
  • Muscle strains:  can be used to speed up the healing of muscle strains and tears.
  • Ligament sprains: can be used to help heal ligament sprains, particularly in the ankle and knee.
  • Chronic pain: can be used to help alleviate chronic pain caused by conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and other conditions.

TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

Trigger point injections are used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. Many times, such knots can be felt under the skin. Trigger points may irritate the nerves around them and cause referred pain, or pain that is felt in another part of the body.

How does it work?

  • temporary relaxation of tight muscle cord
  • allows for improved perfusion
  • causes lengthening of muscle fiber
  • promotes removal of metabolic waste
  • assists breaking of pain-tension cycle
Some conditions that Trigger Point Injections can be used to treat include:
Myofascial pain syndrome: This is a chronic pain disorder that is characterized by muscle pain and tenderness in multiple areas of the body.

Fibromyalgia: This is a chronic pain disorder that is characterized by widespread pain and tenderness in the muscles and soft tissues.

Tension headaches: can be used to relieve tension headaches caused by muscle tension in the neck and shoulders.

Migraine headaches: can be used to relieve migraine headaches caused by muscle tension in the head, face, and neck.

Whiplash: can be used to relieve pain caused by whiplash, which is a common injury that occurs when the head is suddenly and forcefully thrown forward and backward.

Tendinitis: can be used to relieve pain caused by tendinitis, which is inflammation of the tendons.

Tennis elbow: can be used to relieve pain caused by tennis elbow, which is a condition characterized by pain on the outer side of the elbow.
