Regenerative Medicine

St. Charles Sports Medicine now offers cutting edge treatments from an exciting new area of medicine, regenerative medicine. These biologic therapeutic treatments have the potential to fully heal damaged muscles, bones and connective tissues at the cellular level, offering new solutions and hope for athletes and non-athletes. By applying regenerative cells found in blood, bone marrow and or adipose tissues at appropriate times after an injury, physicians from St. Charles can reverse the scarring process and jump start the regenerative capabilities of tissues at the injury site. Specific therapies include Platel Rich Plasma (PRP).

St. Charles is proud to offer the specialized physical therapy care that is essential for regenerative medicine treatments to be effective.
