What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a frontier development that seeks to harness your body’s own power to heal itself and regrow tissues to treat otherwise difficult or previously irreversible issues. From facials and hair growth to sports injuries and arthritis, regenerative medicine is making a difference in patient care. advanced cellular therapy and platelet rich plasma (PRP) are the leading treatments available. The field of Regenerative Medicine is continually discovering and improving upon new treatments, making it among the most-cutting edge therapies available for not only orthopedics but nearly all areas of medicine. As a result, there are several different variations of PRP on the market. Our providers at ActiJoint are diligent in keeping up with the latest regenerative technologies to ensure we can provide you with the best and safest care science has to offer. One example that illustrates this is regarding the TOBI conference on regenerative orthopedic medicine. Fewer than 10 Utah providers attended the most recognized regenerative conference in the nation before 2018, and only two providers from Utah attended multiple years. Dr. Riggs was the only one who attended all 5 years. Although it is revolutionary, PRP is more widely used in Europe than it is here. Dr. Riggs is one of the foremost pioneers bringing PRP technology to the United States, attending and presenting at conferences nationwide, to help perfect, popularize, and standardize regenerative therapies. Hopefully these treatments will become more mainstream in the coming years.
