The field of regenerative medicine is an emerging and exciting field. This field includes the treatment of damaged or injured tissue with either stem cells or platelets. Treatment with these cells creates a very strong healing response, which can help regenerate tissue and alter the overall course of osteoarthritis.
At Wildflower Wellness, Dr. Rebekah Martin provides a comprehensive consultation to help evaluate your spine or joint issues and gives you an honest opinion as to whether or not you are a good candidate for regenerative medicine to the joints or the spine. A comprehensive consultation includes evaluation with our physician, Dr. Martin, as well as an outline of pricing, medications that would need to be discontinued surrounding the procedure as well as protocols following the procedure. All injections are performed under image guidance. For spinal injections, fluoroscopic guidance is used. For joint injections, ultrasound guidance is used. Dr. Martin has a decade of experience in this field and is by far the most experienced regenerative medicine provider in the region. Your initial consultation with Dr. Martin can be performed under your medical insurance if you wish. The actual regenerative medicine therapy is not covered by her insurance and would be a cash pay service.
In addition to platelet therapy and stem cell therapy for regeneration of tissue, tissue regeneration can also be enhanced by the use of peptides, which are used to upregulate certain systems within the body. Certain peptides can be prescribed in order to enhance tissue regeneration. We are also using shockwave therapy for certain types of tissue damage such as tendon and ligament conditions to break up local scar tissue, improve the mechanical movement of the region and cause tissue repair.
At Wildflower MediSpa, PRF and stem cell therapy is also being used for skin aesthetics. These products can be injected directly into areas of wrinkles or are placed topically over the skin following procedures such as microneedling. These products have an amazing ability to cause skin regeneration, improving both college and elastin formation and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the skin.
