Spectrum of Regenerative Treatments

regenerative treatments

Regenerative cell treatments.

Sports Medicine or Regenerative Medicine is a specialized branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and offers an array of treatments and prevention of injuries related to exercise and sports. There is a wide spectrum of regenerative treatments that help people recover and return to their active lifestyles after an injury. Unfortunately, none of these treatments are FDA approved yet.

The goal of regenerative medicine is to help you heal and give you a higher quality of life. It is best to assess the various types of regenerative treatments to determine which type is most suitable for your condition. Not all regenerative treatments are equal in value and effectiveness. Each regenerative treatment has its pros and cons based on scientific evidence.

The concept of regenerative medicine is regenerating damaged areas and repairing the cells. It’s a revolutionary approach that will change the way medicine is practiced, in lots of ways similar to the discovery of penicillin in the last century.

Our bodies are full of regenerative cells.  It’s a matter of knowing how to apply this concept in a non-invasive, natural treatment and in the safest and most effective way. With anything new, lack of standardization can make it confusing to the patients as to what treatment are they exactly getting.

It is becoming more and more common now for mushrooming stem cell clinics to use so-called external sources such as amniotic fluid, placenta tissues, and umbilical cords cells. Some even mis-label or call them baby cells; this gives a false impression that these cells may be more potent than one’s own cells.

Currently, a whole host of companies are providing an array of stem cells that are being grown in laboratories that sterilize, harvest and package the cells with added stimulants which are chemicals that can biologically alter the cells. How much efficacy is present in these cells after package and production is an important question to ask. Sterilization does not guarantee a foreign disease from entering your body because it is introducing cells from someone else’s body. This can be risky.

Regenerative cells from your own body can be extremely safe provided they are harvested and isolated in a proper manner. Otherwise, they can be equally ineffective and even harmful. It’s about high time FDA regulates this industry before people lose faith in this wonderful discovery all due to the greed of few snake oil salesman practices.

Stem cell therapies have great potential. Let’s not over-sell their promise without proper research and evaluation. Let’s establish standardized protocols and safety standards that can assure some uniformity for your treatments.

The general intent of regenerative treatments is to regenerate and repair and not just treat symptomatic relief. Manipulation of cells such as adding chemicals or storing cells is neither safe nor effective. There is a risk of introducing foreign sources into your body.

A metaphor to illustrate a current array of regenerative treatments is to compare it to that of consuming a fruit juice.

“You can get fresh pressed juice from fruit itself, or you can get juice reconstituted from a concentrate or you can drink something that is fruit flavored only mixed with other chemicals”. Similarly in regenerative treatments, depending on the source of cells and concentration of application, it will determine great results or no results from that particular regenerative treatment. Make an Informed decision by understanding the spectrum of regenerative treatments.

Optimal Athletic Performance Requires Elite Sports Medicine Care

 

sports medicine

As an athlete, we all know that optimal athletic performance not only requires strenuous, consistent training and stamina, but it also requires the ability to quickly deal with injuries and declining performance. Serious athletes are always on the search for top-notch sports medicine practice that performs non-invasive and alternative treatments with integrity.

One such alternative that has gained popularity in recent years has been regenerative cell therapy, popularly known as “stem cell treatments”. This treatment has the ability to regenerate and restore injured or worn out tissues, leading to quick recovery and continued sporting activity.

Continuous "wear and tear" is an inevitable issue for most pro, amateur and everyday athletes where the search for sustainable good health becomes the "holy grail".

At PreciseCare, Dr. Gaurav Goswami and his staff have over 25+ years in advanced non-invasive treatments, regenerative stem cell therapy, tissue regeneration and quick recovery time for their patients. Unlike most conventional doctors, Dr. Goswami's innovative and unique approach to sports injury, pain management, and any prior health conditions are holistic and great consideration is given to the individual's overall well-being.

Dr. Goswami evaluates the patient's pain problem such as knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, hip pain or ankle pain not just as an isolated issue, but he performs a full, comprehensive diagnostic exam to see what caused the problem, and the contributing factors that surround your condition. With regenerative cell therapy, the belief is the body is designed to heal itself using our own cells without any unnecessary surgeries or harsh interventions.

Many of our patient athletes have shared benefits from our customized PreciseCare regenerative cell treatment, helping them not only return to play but return to performance.

Here is what our patient and avid mountain biker, Jim P. had to say :

"I love to mountain bike, sometimes going on multi-day rides in the Sierras. My ankle was starting to bark back after long rides due to arthritis incurred after multiple sprains in my 20's. And I was no longer able to run because the pounding severely irritated the ankle.

Dr. Goswami performed his miraculous stem cell injections 8 weeks ago, and I am already biking pain-free. Yesterday I went in for my follow-up, and imaging showed that the joint surface was already smoothing out. Dr. Goswami said cell proliferation would occur for 8 months, which means I may have 6 more months of improvement ahead!

I am super-excited about my mountain biking continuing, and am dreaming that I may sometime even be able to run a bit again.

Now a bit about the team. Sandra in front is super-helpful and friendly. Ruby in the back room couldn't be more supportive and kind, and Dr. Goswami is:

* Understated. He never sold the procedure and under-promised likely results.

* Patient. He took his time explaining the process, my condition, and how results are achieved. I never felt he was rushing anything.

* The best at the procedure. Much technique is involved in stem cell treatment, both in where the cells are pulled from an insertion of the cells.

Lastly, without violating patient privacy, know that another ankle patient I am close to was limping severely before the procedure with bone-on-bone and no hope of a surgical correction and after only 6 weeks post-treatment says his ankle has never felt better.

I am a believer in this new miracle treatment. Dr. Goswami is the best in SoCal at providing it."
