  • Regenerative medicine  – Natterjacks are proud to be at the forefront of regenerative medicine utilising the body’s own powers to assist healing and cure a number of diseases without drugs. These include:

Laser treatment – therapeutic K-laser therapy to speed healing after surgery, aid recovery from various injuries and manage pain by a process known as ‘photobiostimulation’ – read here about this exciting new technology that is now available at Natterjacks

Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) therapy – exciting new advance in the treatment of many diseases which involves culturing omnipotent stem cells derived from your patient and then implanting them in damaged tissues . Read more about the procedure with our owner information leaflet –  procedure

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – another exciting new regenerative technique to help speed healing from injury and manage chronic diseases like arthritis.  PRP concentrates growth factors from the blood and stimulates stem cells.  See here for more about this technique.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Gel injections – Hyaluronate is a natural component of cartilage and joint fluid which is deficient in arthritic joints.  Injecting it directly into affected joints into reduces pain and improves joint function by increasing lubrication (viscosupplementation) and providing nutrition to damaged areas of cartilage. See here for more.

Cartilage repair injections (Pentosan polysulphate) – administered painlessly subcutaneously to stimulate repair of damaged cartilage and improve the quality of joint fluid, this natural product derived from tree bark is finding a whole new range of exciting applications including management of arthritis, spinal disease, joint injuries and bladder problems.  We have lots of patients who receive these injections regularly with great success and zero side effects.  Visit this website for more information and read this summary of the main points.
