What is Regenerative Medicine?
As new discoveries are made in the field of medicine, more people are beginning to realize just how beneficial regenerative medicine is. Regenerative medicine is the practice of replacing existing cells that have been damaged by disease or some sort of injury. Regenerative medicine treatments use your own growth factors or donor tissues to address your injury and improve your health. All of the regenerative medicine options we offer prompt the body's natural healing ability and increase cell growth. At Coastal Health, we use regenerative medicine to treat orthopedic issues, musculoskeletal pain, wound and incision healing, and skin-related therapies. Medical director Dr. Alisha Detorres offers this natural method for general health and aesthetic wellness at her practice, Coastal Health, in Port Angeles, WA.

"Dr. DeTorres is a kind, and very consider doctor. She listens, asks questions and then together you find solutions to looking and feeling your best. She is non-judgemental and isn't there to tell you what to do, but ask you what you feel is best and then support you in your efforts. She is very knowledgeable and friendly and open and honest.

What Can I Expect from Regenerative Medicine Treatments?
Regenerative medicine treatments and techniques can improve the way a person looks and feels and can even reduce the risk for certain medical issues, such as Alzheimer's, stroke, weight gain, and diabetes. At Coastal Health, regenerative medicine can be used to treat chronic pain in areas, like the hips, knees, and shoulders, as well as fight signs of aging, like wrinkle reduction and more. The types of treatments Dr. Detorres offers vary based on the condition, but our treatments often include:
- Prolotherapy with ultrasound: This technique involves injecting dextrose into the treatment area to treat pain, inflammation, and to increase range of motion.
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections with ultrasound: This treatment technique involves creating a platelet-rich serum using a patient's own blood that is injected into their treatment area. These platelets are the first response to an injury and help by providing protein that will help the tissues repair.
- Anti-aging procedures: PRP injections, hormone balancing, and more can all help reduce signs or slow down signs of aging, like wrinkles, lines, and scarring.

Take The First Step Toward Natural Healing
Our bodies are amazing — they have the natural ability to help us heal and recover. Whereas pain prescriptions and other over-the-counter medications help manage pain, it's not a solution to restoring damaged tissue. Regenerative medicine can help reduce pain while strengthening and stabilizing the joints, muscles, and other areas of the body, as well as fight signs of aging, like wrinkles, lines, and loose skin. Whether you're looking to address chronic pain or want to reduce those pesky signs of aging, Dr. Alisha Detorres at Coastal Health can help.
