Fluid Flow Regenerative Medicine Therapy Pennsylvania

The Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania continues to be at the cutting edge of modern medicine by offering fluid flow regenerative medicine therapy in Pennsylvania. Regenerative medicine is a popular approach to medicine that has led to many new therapies. Read on to learn more about regenerative medicine therapy.

What is Regenerative Medicine?

You may be wondering, what is regenerative medicine and what type of issues it includes. Regenerative medicine is based on the practice of regenerating damaged human cells and tissues to bring them back to normal function. The process of regenerative medicine occurs by stimulating the body’s own repair processes. A well-known example of this type of practice is stem cell therapy.

Regenerative medicine can help relieve a variety of acute or chronic joint pain, including tendon injuries, post-surgery aches and pains, osteoarthritis, and sports injuries. 

What is Fluid Flow and How Does it Work?

Here in Pennsylvania, we offer a type of regenerative medicine therapy called Fluid Flow, which was developed by BioLab Sciences. Fluid Flow is an amniotic liquid allograft that takes the amniotic liquid within the placenta to promote the process of tissue repair, replacement and reconstruction. The fluid itself consists of cytokines, which are important in aiding tissue healing. 

Fluid flow solution is injected into affected tendons or ligaments, which prompts local inflammation. This local inflammation triggers a wound-healing cascade and results in new collagen being deposited. Fibroblasts, which are cells that grow the ligaments and tendons, are proliferated by the fluid, which produce new, strong collagen tissue. As it matures, new collagen shrinks, which tightens the ligament and strengthens it. The ligaments and tendons grown after a Fluid Flow injection appear to be thicker and stronger than normal tissues, which exemplifies the new creation of tissue. Fluid flow essentially promotes the body’s own healing responses by activating certain factors that are meant to repair, replace, and reconstruct tissue naturally.

What does Fluid Flow Treat?

Fluid flow can treat a variety of musculoskeletal problems, in addition to other issues like sexual dysfunction and hair loss. Some injuries that Fluid Flow can treat include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle tears
  • Fasciitis
  • Joint pain

Is Fluid Flow Safe?

A common question that we receive at the Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania is whether Fluid Flow is safe. In general, regenerative medicine techniques and procedures are very safe. The overall risks are much less than taking over-the-counter medications, such as aspirin or Motrin, for pain relief. However, the risks and side effects associated with Fluid Flow varies based on the person being treated and the area of the body being treated. 

Fluid Flow liquid is strictly using FDA approved requirements, and donors contributing to Fluid Flow technology are all thoroughly screened and assessed for high risk disease and behavior prior to donation. In order for a donation of human tissue to be deemed eligible for use, it must pass eligibility standards and be reviewed by a licensed physician for BioLab Sciences. The physician will review donor records and their most recent physical examination to look for indication of high risk medical behavior. All laboratories performing these tests are registered with the FDA and certified to perform testing on human specimens under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and 42 CFR part 493, or equivalent measures.
