Stem cell therapy may sound intimidating when people first hear about it. Because stem cells have been the focus of many scientific discussions in recent years, we want to dispel some myths about what stem cell therapy is and how it can be used to help with pain management and rehabilitation.
Stem cell therapy is a cutting-edge technique using regenerative medicine to avoid surgery and treat things like arthritis and chronic pain. Most people have heard of things like a bone marrow transplant, which is a type of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy that’s commonly referred to in rehabilitative and therapeutic settings is different, however. It involves injections or infusions of stem cells and platelets into the body as part of a strategic and focused medical plan.
Who can benefit from stem cell therapy?
It may be a viable option for people with pain in their joints or bones, tendons and ligaments that have been strained or torn, or other injuries and conditions common in aging populations. Doctors are working on ways to apply stem cell treatments to conditions including neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, heart disease, and others.
Is stem cell therapy new?
Stem cell therapy is relatively new, but we have years of research and results we can consider when discussing this treatment. Thanks to years of research and use in clinical settings in recent years, we know that there is great potential to alleviate joint pain by applying stem cell therapy. In fact, stem cell therapy might be a key to eliminating joint pain as it is used to regenerate tissue that is lost in joints due to wear and tear as we age.
What are stem cell therapy results?
It’s different for everyone and depends on your condition and how your body responds. Doctors are hopeful about this treatment because stem cell therapy could unlock freedom of movement and freedom from pain like people haven’t had in many years. That’s why this treatment is growing and continuing to be researched and enhanced. Think about how much pain and anguish could be avoided if people were able to rebuild their joints, feel great, and avoid surgery? It would be incredible! To find out what stem cell therapy could potentially mean for your condition, talk to your medical professional.
Are there other options to avoid surgery?
It’s important to talk to your practitioner about stem cell therapy and other options before jumping to costly and painful surgery. There may be better ways to get back to the enjoyment of your everyday life. We offer many services that treat and prevent illnesses and injuries that can negatively affect your quality of life.
Is it ethical?
Keep in mind that the stem cells used for stem cell therapy are FDA-approved and come from donations that are not associated with terminated pregnancies. They are completely ethical, along with being safe for therapeutic uses without risk of rejection or transmitting disease.
