Stem Cells Therapy

What is Stem Cells therapy?

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.

  • Osteoarthritis – Many complications in osteoarthritis patients are related to the mechanical destruction of cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in your joints. Stem cell treatment is designed to target these areas within the joints to help with the creation of new cartilage cells. As mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent, they can differentiate into cartilage called (chondrocytes). The goal of each stem cell treatment is to inject the stem cells into the joint to create cartilage (chondrocyte cells). Stem cells are also natural anti-inflammatories which can assist with osteoarthritis pain and swelling in the joint area.
  • Lower Back Pain – the intervertebral disc is a common source of chronic lower back pain. Annular tears which are disc tears at the outer aspect of the disc which can cause pain. Treatment objectives are to inject the stem cells into the disc to enhance disc rehydration, promote healing, and prevent further breakdown of the disc. Preliminary studies are showing promise for mildly degenerative lumbar disc pathology. Larger follow-up studies are under development. Stem cell injections into the intervertebral discs are still considered experimental. Other locations such as facet joints and SI joints are also being evaluated in ongoing studies.

Most patients experience minimal discomfort and return to normal activities within a few days. Results of stem cell therapy include accelerated healing, and for many patients, pain relief that can last for years and, in some soft tissue injuries may be permanent.

If you have a tendon or ligament injury, muscle injury, joint damage, nerve pain, or back pain, you may be a candidate. If you are not getting the results you need from your current treatment plan and you want to avoid surgery, then you owe it to yourself to investigate stem cell therapy.
