Regenerative Therapy Q & A

Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic

What is regenerative therapy?

When it comes to soft tissue problems in your body, namely the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in your joints, the goal of regenerative therapy is to relieve your pain and restore full function to the affected area.

Regenerative therapies do more than halt the degenerative progression caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis; they promote the growth of new, healthy tissue using your body’s natural resources.

What regenerative therapy does the Clinic offer?

In keeping up with the latest medical science, the Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic offers BioBurst® regenerative therapy. BioBurst is an allograft — a donor tissue graft — derived from cellular umbilical cord blood.

The key to the BioBurst therapy is that the fluid is rich in two areas:

Cellular and extracellular growth factors

When growth factors are introduced into your body, they signal your body to create a particular type of cell that aids in healing and regeneration. Growth factors are best recognized as regulators of cell processes, including growth, differentiation, proliferation, and healing.

Cytokines

Cytokines are proteins in your body that act as signaling agents between your cells in immune responses. Cytokines function as guides that lead your body’s healing responses to the right area — typically an inflammation, injury, or infection.

BioBurst therapy, in effect, beefs up your body’s natural healing response and speeds up your recovery.

In what areas is regenerative therapy most beneficial?

Dr. Brelsford uses BioBurst for many soft tissue problems, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint injury
  • Post-surgical healing

The therapy is used safely in most joints, especially in your knees, and Dr. Brelsford often recommends using BioBurst regenerative therapy in combination with other therapies, such as platelet-rich plasma therapy and traditional physical therapy.
