Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a field of medicine based on regenerating, or making new again. Regenerative medicine has been used for decades by some of the top athletes and notable people in the country. Now, it’s available for you.

Regenerative medicine works best with an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle protocol, to make the most of your treatments. We offer two types of regenerative medicine: platelet-rich plasma, and human cellular tissue products.

  • A sample of your own blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge.
  • The sample is spun at high speed to separate the red blood cells from the platelets.
  • The resulting platelets are concentrated with valuable healing properties.
  • The platelets are injected into your knee, back, shoulder, or other area to help your body heal the issue.
  • This treatment is also minimally invasive with little to no downtime.

  • It is used for our moderate and severe cases, generally in combination with platelet-rich plasma or hyaluronic acid, a joint lubricant.
  • Tissue is collected from the Wharton’s Jelly, the tissue surrounding the umbilical cords. This is the nutrient-rich portion of the cord.
  • The mothers willingly donate the tissue, and both the mother and baby are unharmed during the process.
  • Mothers are screened beforehand to ensure the highest quality tissue is used.
  • The tissue is injected into your damaged or degraded joint, nerve, or other tissue to facilitate the healing process.
  • This treatment is quick and minimally invasive, with little to no downtime.
  • The tissue we use is potent and filled with powerful healing properties like cytokines, exosomes, proteins, growth factors, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and more.

Joint Pain

Joint pain can often be treated without drugs or surgery.

  • Many people with knee pain can benefit from regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine works by reducing inflammation. Inflammation is a process in the body that causes both pain and joint destruction. Once the inflammation is reduced, healing can occur.
  • What causes knee pain? We used to think that wear and tear caused knee arthritis. But scientists have learned that it’s mostly due to chronic inflammation. It can also be caused by injury. In our office, we don’t want to just give you a treatment for the pain. We want to address the cause of the inflammation, which is generally a dietary or nutrient issue. The Naturopathic doctor and Physician Assistant are both key to helping you with your knee pain.

    • Regenerative medicine can help lower inflammation in many joints, including the small joints of the wrist and hand. Also specific nutrients are used for wrist pain.

    • Areas that are particularly tender in the shoulder and neck are called trigger points or tender points. At Lachman and Associates, patients with pain from trigger points can get relief with regenerative medicine injections.
    • Many rotator cuff injuries can be treated conservatively with regenerative medicine and physical therapy.

  • Foot and ankle problems are generally due to injury. Before trying surgery, conservative options like regenerative medicine should be used. Over-the-counter pain medicines can mask the symptom of pain and don’t solve the issue. They can also cause stomach problems and serious nutrient deficiencies.

  • Back pain is commonly treated with over the counter or prescription medicines. Some people even say that back pain is a normal part of getting old. But what’s really going on is that there is chronic inflammation. Back pain is effectively treated by getting to the root cause. Patients note that they are able to do more with less pain, whether that’s gardening, walking, riding in the car, or playing sports.
    1. Back pain is best treated with Naturopathic medicine.
    2. Regenerative medicine can be used in trigger points, for more severe cases.


Neuropathy is a condition that features numbness and tingling in the hands and feet.

  • Neuropathy is a condition that features numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. When the nerves that connect your body to your brain and spinal cord are disrupted for whatever reason, neuropathy symptoms can occur, affecting your quality of life. The regenerative treatments we provide can help you resolve neuropathy pain at the source for the long-lasting relief you’ve been looking for. We treat the neuropathy from the inside and at the site of the problem. We treat neuropathy from the inside by addressing the cause, especially if the cause is diabetes. Next, we give the nerves special nutrients that have shown to help with neuropathy.
  • Then, our regenerative treatments for neuropathy include injections containing regenerative tissue and/or PRP therapy. We ethically source regenerative tissue from a substance called Wharton’s Jelly that’s found in umbilical cords.

  • Consenting mothers donate the umbilical cord tissue after a scheduled C-section birth.
  • Neither the mother nor baby are harmed in any way during the collection process.
  • The mother is carefully prescreened ahead of time to ensure the highest quality tissue.
  • This regenerative tissue is injected into the area of need to help your body’s own natural healing mechanisms.

This youthful tissue is still at the height of its healing power, with potent healing compounds including: proteins, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, amino acids, lipids, peptides and more.

The treatments are fast and minimally invasive, and there is little to no downtime. There is also very little chance that your body will reject the treatment because the tissue has yet to form its own immune system.

Our PRP therapy also consists of simple injections into your damaged tissue. This treatment is made from a sample of your own blood. After we draw the blood, it is placed in a centrifuge where it is spun to separate the platelets and red blood cells. The resulting platelets have healing properties that can work alongside your body’s own healing process for long-term pain relief.

Peripheral Neuropathy Causes and Treatments

The key to experiencing long-term neuropathy relief is to repair the damage under the surface that’s causing the problem in the first place. If you simply focus on the outward symptoms of pain, numbness, and tingling, you’ll never find a real resolution to the problem. If you mask the discomfort with medication, it will return again and again every time the medication wears off, and you’ll be on a repeating cycle that can last indefinitely.

Neuropathy can have a singular cause, but it can also be caused by a combination of issues or conditions that produce unwanted symptoms.

  • Liver disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Bacterial or viral infection
  • Kidney disease
  • Injury

Urinary incontinence for women, the ‘She Shot’

  • Do you have?
    • Do you experience accidents when you jump, laugh, or cough?
    • Do you experience leaks when you wait too long?
    • Do you have to plan your trips, walks, or hikes around the bathroom?
  • Regenerative medicine helps regenerate and strengthen tissue. As the body ages, the muscles that control and hold the urine get weaker, and this can lead to urinary leakage. Now, we harness the healing power of your own body. The simple 20-minute procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelet-rich-plasma is extracted from the blood and injected into a numbed area. There is no recovery time and only minor discomfort.
  • Women generally note benefit for a year, or longer. For women using incontinence products, this simple procedure can give them confidence. The women we’ve treated were able to leave their pads at home.

Men’s sexual enhancement, the ‘He Shot’

The PRP shot is a treatment that’s made from platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. To create PRP, a sample of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. PRP contains healing properties and growth factors that help to improve circulation and proper function for healthy and sustainable erections.

The main issue with erectile problems in older men is that the blood vessels aren’t as open, and don’t allow for the same blood flow that they did years ago. This treatment is designed to help the blood vessels be younger, able to improve the circulation to what you had years ago. It may also help with improving sensation.

When the PRP is prepared, it is injected into numbed areas of the penis that are crucial for sexual function and response. During the procedure, the majority of patients report feeling little or no discomfort, and there is very little downtime associated with the treatment.

Since the treatment uses your own blood, it is non-allergenic, and there are no harmful side effects like you may experience with drug treatments. Our treatments are customized to meet each man’s unique needs to encourage the best possible results.
