Proudly Serving Galveston County, TX

What is Regenerative Therapy?

Regenerative therapy is a type of medical treatment that helps the body repair and regenerate damaged tissues. It uses the body's own healing processes. Regenerative therapy is used alongside other treatments to help the body heal itself and regenerate soft and connective tissues. Regenerative therapy can help healing in a few ways.

Tissue Repair: It helps heal damaged tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, or cartilage. This therapy boosts the body's natural healing process, making tissue repair faster and reducing recovery time.

Regenerative Medicine

Pain Relief: Some regenerative therapies can relieve pain and reduce inflammation related to muscle and joint problems. These therapies contain substances that help reduce pain signals and promote tissue regeneration.

Joint Support: Regenerative therapies can provide extra support by repairing damaged joint tissues and making them stronger.

Non-Surgical Option: In some cases, regenerative therapies can be an alternative to surgery for people who would otherwise need invasive procedures. By stimulating tissue regeneration, these therapies can offer a way to avoid surgery or delay it.

Your body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little support.

Structural tissues contain both extracellular matrix, such as elastin, Hylauronan, collagen fibers, and fibronectin, and naturally occurring tissue components, such as growth factors, cytokines, and nanoparticles.

Structural tissue products maintain their original characteristics for tissue support such as:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Cushioning
  • Compressibility

What is a structural tissue?

Tissues that physically support or serve as a barrier or conduit, or connect, cover or cushion in the donor are generally considered structural tissues, for the purposes of determining the applicable regulatory definition. Examples of structural tissues include:

  • Bone
  • Skin
  • Amniotic membrane
  • Blood vessel
  • Adipose
  • Cartilage
  • Tendon
  • Ligaments

What are the meaningful characteristics of structural tissue?

Structural tissue’s utility for reconstruction, repair, and replacement uses its relevant characteristics such as strength, flexibility, cushioning, and compressibility.

Do these structural tissues contain cells?

Structural tissue may contain both extracellular matrix and cellular components because any alteration of these components that relates to the tissue’s utility for reconstruction, repair or replacement would be considered more than minimal manipulation.
