Stem Cell Therapy can treat a wide range of Joint and Osteoarthritis Disorders.
Stem cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Stem cell therapy has been recognized by the medical industry worldwide as the biggest breakthrough in natural healing. Stem cells have regenerative power; when they are injected into an area that needs healing, your body’s natural response is to accelerate the process and repair the damage. It is a non-surgical procedure involving the extraction and injection of your own naturally occurring stem cells. We concentrate stem cells from bone marrow or we use your own fat (adipose) tissue.
What is a Stem Cell
Stem cells are the body’s own repair kit. Adult stem cells, not to be confused with embryonic stem cells, reside in adult bone marrow and fat, as well as other tissues and organs of the body. When you have an injury, these stem cells have the natural ability to repair the damaged tissue. However, in people with degenerative diseases, these stem cells are not released quickly enough to repair the damaged tissue.
The type of stem cells that are associated with tissue repair are called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). In orthopedics, two main types of MSCs are used: bone marrow stem cells and adipose (fat) stem cells.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
- Increased healing potential
- Decreased pain
- Increased function
- Quicker recovery time
- Decreased time away from sport or daily activities
- Stem cell therapy may be combined with orthopedic surgery to speed up recovery.
- Stem cell therapy has the potential to reduce the amount of physical therapy and rehabilitation you may need after an injury.
