Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that is used to treat and prevent disease or certain conditions by regenerating the cellular structure of damaged cells, tissues, or organs. In essence, stem cells are your body’s raw material, as they provide the foundation upon which all other cells that have unique functions are generated. As such, stem cell therapy takes advantage of the potential of stem cells to develop into any specific cellular structure by guiding that development in a particular direction to restore and regenerate damaged cells or tissues in a person’s body. Stem cells divide into daughter cells, which either become new stem cells or transform into specialized cells, such as blood cells, bone cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells, or another cell type. They are derived from various sources, such as adipose fat, bone marrow, placental tissue, or umbilical cord blood and tissue.
If your joints and ligaments have experienced any deterioration or degeneration that has led to a chronic pain condition, stem cell therapy can help restore the cellular structure of your joints and ligaments to help them function properly again. As such, stem cell therapy is an excellent alternative to surgery for joint and ligament conditions or injuries! During treatment, stem cells are injected directly into the joint or ligament to stimulate a potent healing response. Stem cell therapy can treat and prevent the following conditions or injuries affecting your joints and ligaments:
• Achilles tendon injuries
• Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries
• Bone and muscle trauma
• Cartilage repair
• Chronic tendonitis
• Degenerative disc disease
• Rotator cuff injuries
• And more!
For most patients, the stem cells injected during therapy should continue to generate new cells in the target are for six months to one year. However, positive results from stem cell therapy can last anywhere from six months to several years! After the procedure, which could take up to two or three hours, you can expect to experience positive results within two to 12 weeks, with ongoing improvement taking place for a period of six months to one year.
Stem cell therapy has excellent pain relief benefits for a wide range of conditions and injuries! Stem cells target and reduce inflammation while also regenerating healthy tissue in affected areas. In doing so, they can effectively reduce pain and restore proper function.
