How does regenerative medicine work? It is a cutting-edge branch of medicine that focuses on activating your body’s abilities to repair and restore cells damaged from hereditary diseases, injuries, or illnesses. As a recognized authority on regenerative medicine in Modesto, Stockton, and Escalon, we offer all-natural options for you to find relief from a wide range of chronic pain and health issues.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to surgery that works with your body’s natural ability to self-heal. Unlike conventional pain management treatments that rely on prescription medication, which only masks symptoms, regenerative medicine promotes regeneration of diseased and degenerated tissue.
Regenerative therapies like treatments containing regenerative cellular tissue and other growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy are safe, effective options for combating a range of musculoskeletal disorders like auto-immune diseases or neurological and orthopedic conditions that cause chronic pain and discomfort.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
At Escalon Physical Medicine in California, unlike traditional stem cell therapy we use Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells to treat a variety of pain conditions. Stem cells can be transformed into many other types of cells and can also be used to regenerate bone or cells that transmit nerve impulses. Regenerative cellular tissue is harvested from birth tissue donated to reputable tissue banks by healthy mothers during a planned cesarean section.
Injections containing stem cells and other growth factors have potent mesenchymal stem cells that divide much faster than older types of stem cells, to fast track tissue regeneration. These young, healthy cells do not show signs of aging like cells harvested from your fat or bone marrow during invasive procedures. Our medical practice prefers these types of cells because they present far fewer complications like infection from surgery. Our process involves only a small needle into the site of your pain to inject the stem cells.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is another safe and effective way to treat and heal damaged joints and tissues. PRP treatments are used to address a wide range of orthopedic injuries in the joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The process involves drawing a blood sample and spinning it in a medical device that isolates and concentrates your blood platelets, which are rich in growth factors and therapeutic proteins. When that bioactive serum is injected at the point of your injury, it stimulates healing and tissue growth.
Conditions that regenerative medicine treats include:
- Knee pain

- Bone issues
- Aesthetic enhancements (e.g., scar removal, wrinkle reduction, and hair regrowth)
- And more
