Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that amplifies your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Stem cells are special cells found in various tissues of your body, including bone marrow and fat.
The therapeutic value of stem cells lies in their ability to form many different specialized cells. For example, one stem cell may divide into more stem cells, or it may create muscle, cartilage, or bone cells. These healthy new cells rebuild and regenerate tissues that have been damaged due to injury or disease.
The team at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine administers stem cells in an injection. Once injected in an area of tissue damage, the stem cells release healing growth factors and provide a source of healthy cells to replace damaged tissue. This reduces swelling and pain without medication or invasive treatments like surgery.
Stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime for recovery.
Depending on your needs, the team at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine may use stem cell therapy on its own, or with another regenerative medicine treatment like PRP.
Scientists are still researching the many potential uses for stem cell therapy. The team at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine may use stem cell therapy to treat the following conditions:
