Stem cell therapy is a cutting edge breakthrough in medical care. Stem cell therapy is changing the way we treat acute and chronic pain because these therapies can eliminate the need for major surgery. Instead of masking the pain with injection blocks or medication, stem cell therapy can help heal the damaged tissue at its source.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to replace dying cells and regenerate damaged tissue. A high concentration of these cells are obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow or fat tissues (adipose) or from a purified amnionic tissue. Our practice uses a sterile closed surgical process to obtain the stem cells. Once obtained, the cells are isolated with a specialized centrifuge and then injected into the painful area on the same day using special imaging to make sure the cells are placed exactly where they are needed.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Stem cells usually remain dormant unless they detect some kind of tissue injury. Then the ‘undifferentiated’ stem cells are called to areas of injury where they are capable of regenerating healthy cells. Sometimes our body’s own healing response is not enough. That's when a concentrated source of stem cells is needed. Stem cell therapy obtains high concentrations of cells to create an environment for the body to heal itself without the need for medications or steroid injections. When stem cells are injected into an area of injury, they enable the body’s natural healing processes to be dramatically accelerated. The cells can stimulate the formation of many different types of tissue including cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissues.
