Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary new alternative to surgery that may allow you to recover from painful joint conditions faster than traditional treatment options. Instead of painful, invasive surgery or a regimen of pain-management medications, stem cell therapy patients generally experience much quicker recovery times, without all of the lingering side effects.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells (which are not gathered from embryos) are found in every human being, and serve as “blank cells” that have the ability to transform themselves into other kinds of cells, including cells found in your joints and cartilage. Normally, the cells in your body are specialized to serve a specific function. For instance, your liver cells look and act different from your hair, cartilage or blood cells. If an area of your body is damaged, the cells in that area must be replaced by cells of the same type. Stem cells, however, are flexible and can adjust their structure to take on the functions of the cells around them, and supercharge your body’s ability to repair itself.
What could stem cells do for me?
When stem cells are introduced into an area of your body that is causing pain (for instance arthritic knees, shoulders, joints or your back), they turn themselves into healthy versions of the cells around them. As the stem cells transform, they also begin to stimulate your body’s natural healing response, and start to repair and regenerate the damaged part of your body. Even after one treatment session, many of our patients experience a reduction in their pain, as the stem cells begin to replace damaged tissue with repaired, healthy cells.
What are the advantages of stem cell therapy?
- Repairs the Underlying Problem: stem cell therapy resolves what’s actually calling your pain, unlike traditional treatment options that only treat the symptoms
- Little-to-no Recovery Time: our treatments are out-patient procedures and most of our patients recover from the procedure within a day.
- No Risk of Allergic Reactions: stem cell treatments require no anesthesia or other medication that could trigger side effects or other adverse reactions.
If you have nagging pain in your knees, elbows, shoulders, back or other joints, stem cell therapy may be able to keep you from needing painful, invasive surgery and a long rehabilitation time.
