Cellular tissue product (CTP) is a new form of therapy we provide at SOHMA Integrative Medicine in Long Beach CA, that aids the body to repair and heal itself.
Though the thought of any procedure involving needles can seem unnerving, CTP injections are helping us provide pain relief and a better quality of life to many patients without the need of drugs or surgeries.
Join us as we explore why you should know more about CTP injections and what they are good for.
What are CTP Injections?
CTP injections are used as an aid to support the body in healing damaged tissue caused by infections, trauma, injury or aging. CTP can help you to regrow tissue to be strong and fully functioning. Oftentimes CTP is used to help manage issues in the spine, hips, shoulders and other major joints. Days after treatment, new cells begin to grow and divide forming new tissue and repairing the damaged area.
What are CTP Injections used for?
Due to the nature of CTP injections, they can be used to help with a variety of conditions including:
- Chronic Joint Pain
- Chronic Muscle Pain
- Ligament Tear/Sprain
- Muscle Tear/Sprain
- Trauma Caused by Injury
Dealing with long term chronic pain can be difficult for anybody. A common source of pain is usually swelling caused by the condition. CTP injections help prevent further inflammation in the area being treated. They then stimulate your own cells to regenerate, and encourage your body to heal the damaged tissue from the inside out. Damaged cells produce a chemical signal attracting the CTP, it then attaches itself to the local blood vessels rejuvenating, replacing and regenerating the damaged cells.
While there is no effective timeline for when a patient will notice significant improvement of their condition, CTP has been shown to help many chronic conditions. Like many procedures, each patient and condition will have their own individual variables determining the outcome of the treatment. Some patients notice an improvement in their condition within a few weeks while others will take months. There are also other cases where patients may require more than one treatment with CTP injections.
Are CTP Injections Right for You?
While there is nothing we can do about aging, here comes a time where our body can no longer keep up with our lifestyle. Whether it’s due to a sports injury, or a sedentary lifestyle, continual wear on our body can eventually become too much for it to recover from. This will slowly begin to affect muscles, tendons, cartilage and nerves. Furthermore poor lifestyle choices can accelerate the degeneration and cause additional pain to the point of it becoming a chronic condition.
Side effects of CTP injections are minor and extremely rare. Mild discomfort after in the treated area is common and increased nerve sensation can be seen when treating damaged nerves. CTP being delivered through injections will involve some level of pain though it’s usually for only a handful of seconds and are typically no more painful than other forms of joint injections or soft tissue injections. Many patients are choosing CTP injections as treatment over the alternative to masking their pain with pharmaceuticals. It’s also been used to avoid going through invasive surgeries. Although in severe cases surgery may still be required for some patients, CTP can help buy valuable time before surgery is needed.
