Regenerative medicine in Portland is primarily concerned with the mechanisms by why we can help restore the optimal functions of the body by introducing Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into your body.

While there is no shortage of information about regenerative medicine and PRP 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 and PRP in Portland, and help you determine whether it may help you achieve your health goals.

What Is Regenerative Medicine in Portland?

Regenerative medicine deals primarily with the physiological mechanisms in your body and PRP is able to expedite the restorative process and promote optimal functions in the area that receive the injection. The therapeutic effects of regenerative medicine and PRP are then able to reinvigorate your cells, tissues, and organs.

PRP in Portland

It's no secret that your body has the capability to repair itself after an injury. The manner in which your body is able to heal itself is by using its PRP is made possible by the PRP's unique ability to transform into a specialized cell and replace damaged cells. As an example, let's you're struggling with back pain in Portland that is a result of a disc injury. In this case, your body needs a specific type of cell to heal the damage. This type of cell would be different if you were dealing with joint pain that is a result of cartilage damage, and can adapt to any number of specialized cells depending on the origin of your pain.

A common question that arises after this explanation of how PRP works is, if our body already has the capability to produce its own PRP, how is PRP helpful in the first place?

PRP is useful because as the body ages over time, our natural ability to produce PRP, as well as their effectiveness is diminished. As we age, the body produces a fraction of the PRP it used to and our ability to quickly bounce back from injuries is lost. This doesn't happen overnight, as such nagging aches and pains that don't simply go away start developing and before long a life of chronic pain can become the norm.
