Regenerative medicine is evolving rapidly, every year we are improving upon prior treatments and discovering new and exciting ways to turn back the clock and restore our bodies. No single area of medicine is poised to change medicine the way Stem Cell treatment will. For musculoskeletal pain, Stem Cells can be administered directly to a site of need such as an injured or knee, hip and shoulder joints as well as injecting around the ligaments of the spine to help strengthen and stabilize areas of weakness and reduce pain.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue and have the ability to repair, rebuild, and rejuvenate tissues in the body. When a disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set about to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells required for the body’s repair.
Stem cells have the capacity to migrate to injured or diseased tissues that are signaling for help. Once stem cells are delivered to a site of injury, they go to work preforming their job of regenerating new cells and naturally healing the body. Stem Cells increase new blood vessel formation which aids in adding vasculature so that tissues can receive proper blood flow and the correct nutrients needed to heal.
Examples of conditions we frequently treat with Stem Cells:
- Degenerative disc disease involving the spine
- Rotator cuff injuries of the shoulder
- Labrum injuries involving the shoulder/hip
- Meniscus tears of the knee
- ACL injuries
- Knee arthritis
- Cartilage damage involving lesser joints such as the elbow, ankle, hand and foot
- Plantar fasciitis
- And many other injuries and diseases.
