Advanced Biologic Q&A
What are Advanced Biologics?
Advanced Biologics are a group of regenerative medicine treatments developed by a team of expert scientists based in Southern California. These techniques use your body’s own growth factors and stem cells to encourage your body’s natural healing process.
Not only does this lower your risk of infection and other related complications, but it also speeds up recovery, prevents inflammation, and promotes health and vitality. The team at CoolMed uses Advanced Biologics to address a variety of common health problems, including sports and activity-related injuries, hormone imbalances, and the natural aging process.
Are there different types of Advanced Biologics?
The team at CoolMed offers a full suite of Advanced Biologics treatments, including:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that uses your own platelets, or growth factors, to encourage recovery following an injury. During this type of treatment, your CoolMed provider draws a sample of your blood and places it into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates your platelets from your blood. Afterward, your provider injects the platelet-rich solution into an area of injured or damaged soft tissue, such as a swollen knee or torn Achilles tendon.
Hormone replacement therapy
As you get older, your body stops producing as many hormones as it once did. This affects both men and women but presents different symptoms. For example, women may experience hot flashes, insomnia, and irritability, while men may experience erectile dysfunction and a decrease in energy. Hormone replacement therapy works to restore your hormones to their natural levels, easing uncomfortable symptoms, and helping you feel better.
Stem cell therapy
Stem cells are your body’s building blocks. They’re the foundation of all the cells throughout your body. However, your body only has a certain number of these cells. Stem cell therapy uses stem cell injections to produce new, healthy cells. This process boosts the production of new tissues while easing pain and swelling. It’s particularly beneficial for athletes and weekend warriors.
If you want to boost your athletic performance on the court or playing field, you might benefit from performance enhancement treatments. Like stem cell therapy and PRP, performance enhancement treatment involves carefully administered injections to limit injury and boost your athletic ability.
What type of Advanced Biologics will I most benefit from?
To determine the type of Advanced Biologics you’ll most benefit from, make an appointment at CoolMed. Following a physical exam, discussion of your goals for treatment, and a review of your medical history, your provider can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
