Regenerative Medicine Q & A

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine refers to a group of minimally-invasive treatments used to replace tissues and cells damaged by trauma, disease, or congenital issues. There are several types of regenerative medicine treatments, including stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, and bone marrow aspirate.

At Kotila Chiropractic, Dr. Kotila uses the Nexus 10 cold laser system to conduct regenerative medicine therapy. This advanced treatment system uses a class 4 laser that provides an 18-watt dual wave output. The treatment is FDA-approved, ensuring patient safety. 

What conditions can regenerative medicine treat?

Regenerative medicine is incredibly versatile. Dr. Kotila regularly uses it to address pain and immobility caused by:

  • Auto injuries
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Peripheral neuropathy

You might also benefit from regenerative medicine with the Nexus 10 cold laser system if you experience a sports or work-related injury.

How does regenerative medicine work?

Dr. Kotila performs regenerative medicine treatments on-site as an outpatient procedure. The Nexus 10 cold laser system uses a high-power single wavelength emitter module with a fiber-optically connected handheld wand. This unique design allows for larger treatment areas and maximum power coverage.

During your regenerative medicine appointment, Dr. Kotila carefully moves the handheld wand up and down and side to side over the treatment area. The wand emits a series of targeted 18-watt dual wave lasers that penetrate your skin.

The system uses low-intensity lasers that don’t heat up. Your body absorbs the laser wavelengths, which causes a chemical reaction. Damaged cells and tissue respond to this reaction, triggering the production of new, healthy cells. Ultimately, this process eases pain and inflammation.

How many regenerative medicine treatments will I need?

The number of regenerative medicine treatments you’ll need depends on the severity of your symptoms and the underlying cause. To achieve the best results, Dr. Kotila usually recommends a series of three to five treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart.

Some people experience significant relief following one appointment. For others, it takes several. Be patient, follow Dr. Kotila’s recovery instructions carefully, and make sure to attend all of your follow-up appointments.

Am I a good candidate for regenerative medicine treatment?

Only a qualified medical professional like Dr. Kotila can determine if you’re a good candidate for regenerative medicine therapy with the Nexus 10 cold laser system. Following a physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, he can develop a custom care plan.
