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.
Stem cell therapy had successfully treated a wide range of orthopedic conditions, including soft tissue injuries involving tendons and ligaments.
At The Sports Medicine and Regenerative Therapeutics Institute, we use stem cells to treat rotator cuff tears, knee arthritis, back pain, and more. Sometimes, we will use stem cells in conjunction with PRP injections to treat advanced joint damage.
Most patients experience little or no 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, permanently. In addition, stem cell therapy has the potential to reduce the amount of physical therapy and rehabilitation you may need after an injury.
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 if at all possible, then you owe it to yourself to investigate stem cell therapy.
However, not everyone is a candidate - if you have active cancer or infection, a history of lymphoma, or are taking certain blood thinners, this therapy may not be suitable for you without clearance from your oncologist or cardiologist.
