Innovative Medicine Q & A
What is innovative medicine?
Innovative medicine is an emerging medical specialty area with the goal of helping your body heal itself. Your body has the ability to create new cells and repair damage. You can see this process as an injury heals or in the continuous loss and growth of skin cells.
Innovative medicine uses human cellular tissue products (HCTPs) like:
- Platelets (platelet-rich plasma or PRP)
- Growth factors
HCTPs may stimulate and accelerate your healing ability.
What conditions might improve with innovative medicine?
Medical researchers are still identifying uses for innovative medicine and completing studies on their efficacy. However, some of the conditions and injuries research finds might improve with innovative medicine include:
- Tendon injuries
- Ligament sprains
- Muscle strains
Accelerated Medical can incorporate innovative medicine into treatment plans for any part of your musculoskeletal system from your neck, shoulders, and elbows to your hips, knees, and feet. They might also suggest innovative medicine to accelerate your recovery after surgery.
What should I expect during a innovative medicine treatment?
Before starting any treatment plan, Accelerated Medical provides a comprehensive exam to assess your condition and identify the best treatments to restore your health and wellness. Your provider might recommend a series of innovative medicine treatments combined with other therapies to help your body heal.
In most cases, your provider administers innovative medicine treatments with an injection. This delivers the PRP or HCTPs directly into your damaged or injured tissue. They might give you a local anesthetic at your injection site to keep you comfortable during your treatment.
Depending on the location of your injury, your provider might also use an X-ray to guide the needle to the correct location in your body. For example, if they’re using innovative medicine as part of a treatment plan for a knee injury, an X-ray can help your provider target the specific injury or damage.
What should I expect after a innovative medical treatment?
You typically don’t need to take time off to recover after a innovative medical treatment. You might have some mild inflammation as your body’s healing response kicks in, but if this happens, the symptoms subside rapidly.
While innovative medicine may help you heal, your body still needs time to repair itself. Some patients might notice an improvement after two weeks, while others might require several treatments over two months or more.
