What is Regenexx SCP Therapy?
Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical in New York, NY are proud to offer SCP therapy as a component of our broader practice of interventional pain management for our patients. SCP therapy is one of the most revolutionary and unique procedures in the field of interventional pain management because it basically utilizes a component of one’s own tissue that is obtained and processed to create a product that can then be used to treat various orthopedic conditions. Regenexx is one of the founding companies of regenerative medicine especially in implementing the use of SCP to treat orthopedic conditions. Regenexx Super Concentrated Platelets (SCP) is their version of SCP that is special because it is much more concentrated and stronger than SCP obtained from other regenerative medicine companies. Regenexx SCP is what we use here at Ospina Medical for all our SCP therapy treatments. To learn more about SCP therapy, contact Ospina Medical in New York, NY to schedule a consultation. Our team is always excited to discuss the benefits of SCP Therapy and how it can be used to treat your own individualized orthopedic condition.
What are the benefits of SCP therapy?
When more traditional, or dismissive, pain management options fail to be effective, Ospina Medical encourages our patients to consider SCP therapy. Specifically for orthopedic conditions, this innovating therapy can provide many benefits, such as:
- Decrease of inflammation at injury site
- Reduces pain and irritation
- Allows joint to grow mobility and range of motion
- Non-invasive alternative to debilitating orthopedic surgeries
SCP for Shoulder Pain
Oftentimes, we think that shoulder pain is something that will cause chronic pain for the rest of our lives unless we undergo surgery. Even with surgical options, shoulder and rotator cuff pain is notoriously difficult to treat and the surgical outcomes are not too great. Fortunately, shoulder pain is one area where SCP therapy clearly shines as a legitimate alternative option for patients who are not keen on surgical treatments. SCP injections into specific targets (tendons, ligaments, cartilage, joint space, etc) within and surrounding the shoulder joint depending on the patient’s own individualized anatomy can encourage cell regeneration in and around the joint. This basically allows your body to heal itself without distorting your anatomy significantly. This treatment can be used to treat many different shoulder ailments such as arthritis, rotator cuff tears, and biceps tendinitis, etc.
SCP and Platelet Lysate for Lower Back Pain
One of the most frequent problems that our patients present with is low back pain. This can be caused by a variety of different factors. However, most of them can be traced back to issues within the vertebrae. Due to the fact that it is created from your own tissue, SCP does not cause the same risks as steroids and other forms of traditional medicine when it comes to treating low back pain. Additionally, while these traditional options only hide the symptoms of the problem, SCP injections can actually go further to even repair the root of the issue itself. In some cases, SCP may potentially lead to too much inflammation in the afflicted area, such as areas around nerves. In these instances, we utilize what is known as platelet lysate, which allows the necessary growth factors to be immediately released into the body in a way that is less irritating to the tissue.
How is SCP Therapy Performed?
Once you're comfortably seated, a small amount of blood will be taken from your arm. Be wary because non-Regenexx companies take much less blood than Regenexx facilities, which basically translates to a much less concentration of SCP and a much weaker injection. After the blood is collected, the different components of the blood will be separated in an on-site laboratory and prepared to be injected. This will usually take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the amount of blood that needs to be processed. We will place your concentrated plasma into a syringe and inject it into the designated areas of your body previously discussed by you and the physician. Both of the physicians here at Ospina Medical are board-certified anesthesiologists and most of the SCP cases are done under light sedation (not general anesthesia). Depending on the case’s complexity it will take either a half-day or a full day to complete the full procedure and recover from anesthesia.
Live a pain-free Life
With SCP treatments, many of our patients are able to rid themselves of pain they've been feeling for weeks, months, and even years. This procedure is ideal for men and women who enjoy a natural alternative to surgery that can still provide quick and effective results.
