While there is no shortage of information about regenerative medicine in the media, on the internet, and in brochures across the country, some confusion still persists about it. This is mostly due to the nature of it being a cutting-edge therapy that has only recently become widely available.
This article seeks to give you an in-depth explanation of regenerative medicine in Sterling, and help you determine whether it may help you achieve your health goals.
Regenerative medicine involves using Human Cellular Tissue Products (HCTP) to help your body to heal itself.
Active Lifestyle Medical provides patients with HCTPs to help stimulate the regenerating healing process.
These products are made up of Hyaluronic acid, growth factors, exosomes and cytokines, which are all powerful factors that help regenerate your body tissues.
Once you are injected with HCTPs the growth factors can start triggering cell growth in the area injected. Over the following few weeks, cells may grow and divide, forming new tissues. This may heal damaged or injured areas you have, without going through a surgical procedure.

- And other joints of the body
Will I need more than one treatment with regenerative medicine?
Possibly, depending on how quickly you heal and the severity of your injury. If you don’t see any improvement after several months, or if you don’t notice a significant improvement, your doctor might suggest repeating the treatment, just to further boost healthy tissue growth. They can let you know what to expect during your consultation and assessment appointment.
Do regenerative medicine injections hurt?
They are injections after all, so you may feel a bit of stinging, but only for a few seconds. Most patients describe a temporary burning sensation, although it doesn’t last long. If you are sensitive to pain or are getting the injection in a sensitive area, your practitioner can apply a topical numbing agent. The agent decreases some of the stinging sensations from the injection and minimizes your discomfort
