Restorative Medicine in Denver, CO.

Restorative medicine is the application of several therapies that all have one goal in mind, “replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function”. Our bodies have an innate response when injured or invaded by disease, to heal and defend. Restorative therapies work at harnessing and enhancing the body’s own restorative powers. The miracle, however, is the result of scientific exploration that has begun to unlock and utilize the body’s extraordinary ability to heal and restore itself.

Many patients have turned to restorative medicine for treatment options that may help them recover from sports injuries, alleviate chronic pain and even combat the natural effects of aging and the impact on their aesthetic appearance. While restorative medicine therapy is often associated with stem cells, there are many restorative therapies that can be used to create effective treatments that enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. These therapies have helped countless patients manage their pain, recover from injuries sooner and rejuvenate their appearance.

How Does Restorative Medicine Work?

We know that cells are the building blocks of tissue, and tissues are the basic unit of function in the body. Generally, groups of cells make and secrete their own support structures, called the extracellular matrix. This matrix, or scaffold, does more than just support the cells; it also acts as a relay station for various signaling molecules. Thus, cells receive messages from many sources that become available from the local environment..

 

Each signal can start a chain of responses that determine what happens to the cell. Through medical technology we can now understand how individual cells respond to signals, interact with their environment and organize themselves into a healing process. Scaffolds are created utilizing various restorative medicine therapies allowing for the issue ” self-assemble”.

The key piece behind restorative therapies is creating the right kind of signaling for healing and tissue repair to occur. Our understanding of restorative therapies continues to expand. Even as recent as 2017, based on Dr. Arnold Kaplans work (Link), we know that even a concentration of stem cells placed in damaged tissues create signaling vs. actually becoming new tissues. 

At Peak Vitality we utilize several therapies to create the signaling your body needs in order to stimulate repair, lower pain, reduce inflammation and restore function.
